5:00 pm
coasts. we may need a high-speed rail system across this country as a first step towards uniting us the way the old rail system did when lincoln built it. what we will most need, however, is a president determined to save this union the way lincoln did. and that's "hardball" for now. thanks for being with us. "all in" with chris hayes starts right now. good evening from new york. i'm chris hayes on election day eve. that's right. you're looking at a live picture from downtown philadelphia where hillary clinton is holding her second to last rally in the campaign, an enormous event, the biggest stars of the democratic party, including both the president of the united states and the first lady all sharing the same stage, about 30,000 folks at least packed in there, possibly larger than the population of philadelphia back in 1776.
5:01 pm
also at this hour, donald trump and his running mate mike pence are rallying supporters in manchester, new hampshire, a state that could make or break their campaign's narrow path to victory. heading into election day, the race is close. clinton leads trump by 3.5 points. the candidates don't appear to be taking any chances. clinton started the day in pittsburgh, traveling to western michigan and then philadelphia and now a midnight rally in north carolina. starting in sarasota, florida, and now manchester for trump and finishing in grand rapids, michigan. there's concern about clinton's firewall, supposedly it's called it, in the upper midwest, groups that tend to favor trump, particularly white voters without college degrees, make up a larger portion of the electorate. there's a huge surge in hispanic
5:02 pm
voting across the board with the potential to scramble the map and lift clinton's chances. on top of all of that, director james comey's letter to congress, saying that the newly discovered e-mails warrant no new judicial action against clinton. meaning, the bomb he dropped was for nothing. nevertheless, that ifinding has not put the issue to rest in the eyes of his opponent. >> right now, she's being protected by a totally rigged system. i've been saying it for a long time. you can't review 650,000 new e-mails in eight days. you can't do it, folks. hillary clinton is guilty. she knows it, the fbi knows it, the people know it. >> trump might have a point about the e-mail review if he didn't have the facts completed wrong. 650,000 is the total number of e-mails found to anthony weiner
5:03 pm
and huma abedin going back years. the clinton e-mails were a very small subset of those. zm. >> so she got jay z and beyonce and the language is so bad. so bad. and as they were singing -- singing, right? singing? talking? was it talking or singing? i don't know. >> i'm joined now by a democratic strategist and political analyst and michael steele. we will, of course, be monitoring that rally in philadelphia. john bon jovi is there as well as bruce springsteen. what is with this hip-hop? are they talking or singing? >> my god, the language. >> i thought of you, actually.
5:04 pm
i thought of you when i saw that because at some level donald trump doesn't like when people say mean things about him so he goes at them no matter who they are, alicia machado or jay zr whatever. i remember you talking about hip-hop republicans. >> that's it. >> and ultimately, what you were talking about was like, look, this is expanding the party. >> expanding the party. and it's just so -- in some weird way, it's perfectly fitting for him on stage, he's got ted nugent saying what's this rap music? >> it's kind of my experience at the rnc. but it really is. and we talked about hip-hop republicanism, as you said, in the sense of it broadening and expanding. people begin to appreciate how much the country has changed, how diverse it is, how much it's grown and how much better we are
5:05 pm
for it and as republicans, as conservatives, we have a message that speaks to that in an authentic way. anyway, here we are. >> my favorite part, they are using bad language, this man is really shocked. you're -- i'm like, wait a minute. >> the nonrunning for president -- >> right. the other thing that struck me is, you know, they have cross-cultural appeal and he thinks that they are some kind of -- >> he's also playing to the room and playing to the room, if you were to say what's another theme that's been the trump campaign, he had a great rift in the sense that it was illuminating where he talked about draining the swamp and he said i didn't like it at first but said it to the room and got huge cheers and he was sorting of taking you behind the means by which he has essentially like a stand-up comic doing road shows.
5:06 pm
and that's what has driven this campaign. >> that's always been the -- that's what i think the media underestimated at the very beginning, just how well he's playing the room. >> right. the country is bigger than the room. >> right. he was throwing stuff out there just to see how he would be responded to and land. here we are. >> but maybe that's 30,000 people in the room. there's 325 million people in a country and everybody sees that is watching this and everybody else sees that he doesn't understand the room is a small part of -- >> there's more people like that in the room. >> and literally, that's the bet -- >> they all want to be in that room. >> that's what we find out tomorrow, right? >> in a certain way, that's what -- in all of the sur ralt of this campaign, the twists and turns, the campaign waging a bet on how many people in america are like the people in the room. >> that's right.
5:07 pm
>> do they have the bigger share. >> when we're all said and done, remember, he was just shocked, shocked that somebody would say that language. >> let me ask you this. so we can talk a little bit of the attack and you both are political veterans. you've got this kind of late play for the upper midwest. trump goes to minnesota yesterday. you have multiple events in michigan today. seeing a fair amount of -- it's not like there's a lot of data to support this because the polling average looks pretty good and you have the uaw field director for the state saying don't worry. what's your -- as a veteran, as a guy who has -- >> michigan is a little bit different than other places. it's more like wisconsin and minnesota than it is like ohio or indiana. do you know what the unemployment rate is in michigan? 4.6%. and there's this view that michigan is some modern day
5:08 pm
version of -- >> right. >> partly because it was so bad for so long. >> right. i understand. some of the jobs -- maybe it's not $30 an hour auto workers but it's not the kind of vision that a lot of people have in the united states about michigan and, look, the guy, he has to go somewhere. he has to take something away. >> that's right. >> from the democratic coalition. he has pennsylvania and michigan, you've got to -- >> if you go somewhere, you might as well go there. there's no early voting there. >> you're absolutely right about where michigan is in its upward swing and mobility and job rate. the attitude, though, is still very much old school. >> yeah. >> and that's something that trump has figured out and tapped into. the question is, to the point you just made, chris, how does the math work? michigan is not one of those states that has early voting. you have no real sense how that vote has developed on the ground and being there it's been significant enough to draw hillary clinton back there. >> and the president.
5:09 pm
>> and the president. >> one thing i would say about michigan, historically, two things happened in 2012 and i remember miss stewart telling me this, we kind of overperformed in michigan in 2012 because of the auto rescue. the president was clearly for it, mitt romney was against it. he got kicked there. and also michigan is the state that they outperformed the polling number in 2012. they go until four or five and come up nine when all is said and done. >> still, when was the last time that it was republican? >> first time in a long time for everything. >> i'm not -- i don't blame him. he's got to make a play somewhere. i'm just saying, michigan is not the hell hole that it is portrayed as. >> we have a live shot there. mike is in new hampshire. new hampshire looks extremely tight. the problem for the republicans, it seems to me, is nevada offsets new hampshire. if nevada has been, as some of
5:10 pm
the early voting indicates, a decline for republicans. anything can happen on election day. if you grab those four in new hampshire, it's still very narrow. >> iowa, new hampshire, florida, and ohio. that's the four they know they have to get. those four are the most important, and obviously most important is florida. you're right. there was a conversation with the democratic party chairman of new hampshire about an hour ago and he was like, i don't care what the numbers say. here's the ground game. and the bottom line is trump has no ground game in new hampshire. >> well, this is the other experiment we get to see the results of tomorrow. >> their ground game is beyond comprehension. i think they had like three million touches. >> 5,000 people door knocking just this past weekend. >> right. >> and we're going to see if it matters. john ralston, a nevada guy, he
5:11 pm
says it's done. >> right. >> that she's won nevada. that is a big deal. and if you look at these numbers, the ground game that they have in florida, take your breath away. if you look at what they've put up now, you know, the challenge they have is they've got to stay focused through tomorrow night. >> your point about the ground game, it's an open question, what this looks like, how much of that was obama enthusiasm specific to barack obama and how much is it of the machinery of the -- you have people out to vote and we'll find out tomorrow when we start to get those results back. i can't believe i'm saying tomorrow. >> that's right, baby. >> it is our last show before the election. we have a lot to cover. we will go there live when the obamas and the clintons take the stage together on this, the last night of our lives -- the last night of the campaign.
5:12 pm
sorry. next. the trump and clinton campaigns are here to talk last-minute strategy and later veteran history buff dan rather will be here. don't go anywhere. we'll be right back after this quick break. and why a pro football team chose us to deliver fiber-enabled broadband to more than 65,000 fans. and why a leading car brand counts on us to keep their dealer network streamlined and nimble. businesses count on communication, and communication counts on centurylink. just sve classy snacks and berow a gracious host,iday party. no matter who shows up. do you like nuts? when i was too busy with the kids to get a repair estimate.
5:13 pm
i just snapped a photo and got an estimate in 24 hours. my insurance company definitely doesn't have that... you can leave worry behind when liberty stands with you™ liberty mutual insurance want a great way to help our children thrive? then be sure to vote yes on proposition 55. prop 55 doesn't raise taxes on anyone. instead, it simply maintains the current tax rate on the wealthiest californians to prevent education cuts that would hurt our kids. no wonder prop 55 is endorsed by the california pta, teachers and educators. because all of us want to help our children thrive. it's time to vote yes on proposition 55.
5:14 pm
do not let this opportunity slip away. we are fighting for every citizen who believes that government should serve the people. not the donors and not the special interests. and we are fighting to bring us all together as americans. we're a divided nation. we're a very badly divided nation. we're going to be brought together. just imagine what our country could accomplish if we started working together as one people under one god saluting one
5:15 pm
american god. >> you were not super early on the trump train. >> right. >> but you're on the trump train now. you going to jump off before tomorrow? >> as a matter of fact, i was anti-trump in the early days of the campaign. i wasn't convinced he was serious. he's a conservative, which is important to me. i'm more than convinced on both of those -- >> what's conservative? what is the core? a lot of people say if you look at his agenda, particularly the way he talks about government, the way he talks about tariffs, that these are not part of the sort of conservative catacysm. >> he's evolving as a candidate and ronald reagan wasn't always a conservative and evolved a lot. to me personally, he was not a proponent of the second amendment at one point.
5:16 pm
he wasn't pro-life at one point. >> abortion, guns, things like that. >> those were stumbling block force me. he was in favor of bigger government than i was but that's all in the past. i believe firmly that he has evolved as a person, certainly as a candidate. he persuaded me more than anything, chris, that there's a palpable discomfort, a disquiet out there in our country. the status quo isn't good. slow growth and terror on the march. if we stick to those macro issues of security and prosperity, we need to change course. >> so -- it's interesting you say that. that's the story that the trump campaign has been telling and in a sort of interesting way, it's a story that the trump campaign thinks the media is against them and a guy just showed up in a shirt talking about lynching journalists. that's also the story that has been told in the media which is why i thought the approval ratings of barack obama is fascinating. are those people in the 56%, are
5:17 pm
they diluted? are they wrong? >> no. i'm very glad that we're not running against barack obama. and the obamas have been by far the best weapon on the campaign trail for the clintons. but thankfully we're not running against -- >> like donald trump says, it's funny, he chooses to run against barack obama because he says if you want, this is something that he's been doing -- if you want the third term of barack obama, vote for hillary clinton and scott walker tweeted that the other day and a lot of people were like -- >> please don't misunderstand me. i disagree with president obama on almost everything when it comes to policy but he's clearly a very popular and some way transformational person. hillary clinton is the opposite of that. hillary clinton represents cronyism and corruption to the core. and one thing i'll say for president obama, although i don't like his policies very much, i think he's had a pretty scandal-free administration. hillary is the -- >> wait. let's talk about that. there's two different universes when you talk about scandals,
5:18 pm
right? one is the universe that you described. a ceaseless stew of scandal. and the other is almost a ceaseless persecution and mongering around her. this is the comey situation. comey comes out and says, look, we reviewed the e-mails. it doesn't change our judgment. your candidate has said the fix is in. surrogates have expressed shock that you could get through that many e-mails apparently unclear on how the search functions work, et cetera. is it your stance that this is a fix, that it's corrupt, that james comey is essentially a compromised actor? >> you know, i don't know about that. here's what i do know. >> that's the argument, just to be clear. >> washington is fixed. what i do know is that washington, d.c., is fixed, it is rigged and there's a political elite class that exists for its own self and the
5:19 pm
clintons are the embodiment of that and they have profited themselves -- there are certain republicans involved as well. >> what about mike pence? >> heck, no. >> he was there for 16 years. >> not mike pence. >> mike pence is the co-sponsor on the iraq resolution. mike pence -- steve cortez, you may be an outsider. mike pence is not an outsider. >> is he an outsider now. he's a governor coming from the midwest. >> he was in washington for 16 years. >> who joined up with -- look -- >> nafta, iraq, everything that you say is corrupt by the washington elite, all i want to say is you guys fixed the lasso about this big so it just lands around hillary clinton and if you're honest about what the fixed corrupt washington elite is, it's got a huge amount of republicans, including your
5:20 pm
running mate. >> i will agree that a lot of republicans will fall into -- >> which is why the election -- >> it's not so up republicans against democrats. we are going to reclaim our government and reignite our economy. >> thanks for coming. >> thanks for having me. >> he's still on the train. bruce springsteen playing in philadelphia. let's take a listen. ♪ we have one last chance to make it real ♪ ♪ trading these wings on some wings ♪ ♪ climbing back, heaven's waiting down on the tracks ♪ ♪ ooh, come take my hand right now tonight to case the promise land ♪ ♪ ooh, thunder roll, thunder roll ♪ ♪ laying out there like a killer
5:21 pm
in the sun i know it's late but we can make it if we run ♪ >> all right. bruce springsteen there. first lady michelle obama and mr. obama and the clintons are going to take to the stage. i'm sure you encounter this idea that she's part of this corrupt system, that she's a crony and corrupt. what do you say to that? >> i think that there ishe widest possible gulf between the caricature that republicans have painted of hillary clinton with and who she actually is and i implore people to look past the media noise and pay a little bit of attention to where she came from, why she does what she does
5:22 pm
and throughout her career she's really focused on bringing voice to people who get left behind. she's been crusading for disabled children since she literally got out of college. that's not something that garners a ton of media attention but speaks to the core and character of the person. it's a tough sell. you have to say ignore this very loud noise that's coming from the opposition, that many in the media enjoy am pli flying for whatever reason and pay attention to the quieter things that tell you about the principle of the person and that's tough but it's there with her. >> it's interesting to me -- a few people have pointed this out, if you look at the polling and the places where she's sort of gone up the most, the convention after the first debate, she herself is communicating those and i think that, whether you like hillary clinton or not, the idea that
5:23 pm
there's a caricature of her is pretty clear. >> right. and i point to what the president said recently, which is there is a reason why we have never elected a woman president. we react strangely to women seeking positions of power and we seek reasons to justify that uncomfortableness and i think we see part of that play out here. when she gets a chance to make her own case, it's incredibly compelling. >> see, i agree with that, obviously. clearly, the dynamics are so overdetermined in this context. there's a degree to which there's so much continuity with bill clinton in terms of her treatment, even with the persona. all of the veterans of the clinton wars in the 1990s are literally running donald trump's campaign. >> yeah. >> all of the ideas like the investigation that leads to another investigation that leads to another -- >> in the '90s, she was one of the people who was willing to take on this entrenched republican.
5:24 pm
this is when they thought that conservative values were going to rule the country for generations to come and bill and hillary came in and said, no, not so much. we have a social safety net we want to take care of. we want to lift people up in poverty and pay attention to the real racial issues in this country. it messed with a lot of republicans' long-term goals. >> i want to listen in there with bruce springsteen again. >> no matter how difficult, it's realization. hillary sees an american where the issue of income distribution should be at the forefront of our national conversation. where the progress we've made in reducing unemployment is not enough, we must do better. she has a vision of universal health care for all that will build on the work of president obama. she sees an american that needs to be fairer where our highest courts look to protect the rights of all of our citizens
5:25 pm
and not just the privileged. she sees an america where the issue of immigration reform is dealt with realistically and compassionately. she calls on america to participate in the welfare of our planet, both in world affairs and in global science and we're the unfinished business of protecting the rights of women is not after afterthought but a priority. this is a country where we are indeed and we will indeed be stronger together. now, briefly to address our opponent, this is a man whose vision is limited to little beyond himself, the profound lack of decency that would allow him to prioritize his own interests and ego before american democracy itself. somebody who would be willing to damage our long-cherished and admired system rather than look to himself as the reasons behind his own epic failure.
5:26 pm
that's unforgivable. tomorrow, those ideas and that campaign is going down.

they are breaking records for just not oem in miami and florida breaking records for
5:36 pm
early voter turnout but latino and hispanic turnout is coming in. >> we will be there tomorrow eating aand voting for hillary. >> "the new york times" noted today there really is a hispanic voter surge, one that could make a difference in the tightly contested battleground state of florida. through saturday, 565,000 hispanics had completed early in-person voting in florida, a 100% increase over 2012. crucially, many of them are new voters. joining me now, jeremy bird, national field director for president obama's 2012 campaign and maria, obviously we will keep monitoring that rally that's happening, the superstar-studded rally in philadelphia. maria, you have -- this is a
5:37 pm
story you've been tracking, reporting on the ground talking about and in some ways it's a story that the press has covered and we've covered it on the show but relative to the amount of attention to the trump voter did not get as much play but tomorrow could be this day where it's like, oh, wow. >> and you know, i have been thinking about this day for the longest time. i had a pretty amazing weekend when i started to see the stories that we at latino usa have held for so long. >> we're going to listen to chelsea clinton. hold that thought. >> on behalf of my mother's campaign, to meet the thousands of organizers who are working so hard with probably no sleep, to meet so many of the million volunteers who have been part of this campaign and to now be here tonight with the tens of thousands of people here is just
5:38 pm
extraordinary. i am so, so grateful and i am so fiercely, ridiculously proud of my mom and i am unapologetically biased towards her and i hope that many of you now understand, after this campaign, why that's so true for me. and i cannot wait to cast my vote for her tomorrow. and i like to think i'm the most excited person here but my dad might be even a little bit more excited than i am. so just from the bottom of my heart, thank you all so very much and now it is my great honor to introduce my dad, president bill clinton. [cheers and applause ]
5:39 pm
>> thank you. first of all, you just saw one of the reasons you should support hillary for president. i am so proud of our daughter, i'm grateful for her, i'm grateful for all of you who have worked for her, from the beginning to today. i am grateful to bruce springsteen and john bon jovi. i'm grateful for you. but i want you to think for one minute of where we are and what it means. this country began here. right here. with people who pledged their lives, their fortunes, their sacred honor to form a more perfect -- union. in other words, we're stronger together.
5:40 pm
and i have watched in this campaign as our candidate lived a campaign as she has lived her life. dedicated to making changes to other people, proving that no matter what came along or what they hit her with, no matter what obstacles were in the road, she would keep her eyes on other people, that her children and our grandchildren deserve on how we could move forward together and no matter what happened, she said we're stronger together. that means answers are better than resentment. working together is better than fighting all the time and it's way better to lift somebody up than put people down. that is the candidate you are for. and tomorrow the american people are going to be given a chance.
5:41 pm
one more time to form a more perfect union and our great president to term limits, it will be a change election and we have to decide, are we going to change forward together or backward. i think you know what the answer is going to be. and i think that all of us owe a great debt of gratitude to the president, to the first lady, to the administration of barack obama. i loved it when he said at the democratic convention -- >> looks like we just lost our live feed of president clinton addressing the mass crowd in downtown philadelphia. i'm listening to see if we have audio and we do not have it. we're trying to restore the feed.
5:42 pm
we will come back to the former president just as soon as we get that up. maria, i'm sorry to cut you off. you were talking about having covered this story of a latino vote. >> we've been covering this on latino usa for over 20 years and when donald trump began this campaign of zeroing in on immigrants, not only a dangerous speech but also in terms of what could happen to the republican party. >> he is awakening. we need to have viable parties, right. so it was also dangerous in the sense that, yes, donald trump has in fact inspired this woke giant, hash tag, it's come out. >> and tomorrow -- all eyes will be on that as the story of the election if it continues the way it has. let's listen to the first lady
5:43 pm
of the united states. >> thank you for this introduction and thank you, philadelphia. look at you. wow. what an amazing crowd. what an amazing night. this -- this is truly an emotional moment for me for so many reasons. first, we are one day away from once again from making history. tomorrow, we have the chance to elect someone who is singularly qualified to be our president, our friend hillary clinton. she is a phenomenal woman who has devoted her life to helping others, kids in crumbling schools, families struggling to get by, women who need a voice. and let me tell you, when the going gets tough, hillary is the
5:44 pm
person we want on our side because she never gives up. she never quits, she refuses to ever be knocked down, pushed around or counted out. and on top of all of that, she is an outstanding mother, a loving and loyal wife, a bold and brilliant woman who is an inspiration to me and to millions across this country and in just a few hours, we have the power to make her our next president. now how amazing is that? so i am honored to be here on this stage, on the eve of this historic moment. i'm also emotional because in many ways speaking here tonight is perhaps the last and most important thing that i can do for my country as first lady.
5:45 pm
and let me just take a moment to thank you, to thank the people of this country for giving our family the extraordinary honor of serving as your first family. [cheers and applause ] thank you for your love, thank you for your prayers. thank you for welcoming us into your communities with open hearts, for giving us a chance, whether you agreed with our politics or not. every day you have inspired us with your courage and your decency. and every day we have tried to make you proud and live up to the standard of citizenship that you set because we know that our words and actions are a
5:46 pm
reflection to the world of who we are as a nation and, more importantly, our actions are a reflection of what behavior we hope our children will emulate. and we believe that our responsibility to you and to this country does not end when we leave the white house. that's why barack and i have been working so hard in this election, because we believe that we have a duty to ensure that this country is handed over to a leader that we can all trust. a leader who takes this job seriously. someone who is truly ready to be commander in chief on day one. we -- we deserve a leader who will ensure that our daughters are safe and respected. and that our sons understand that truly strong men are
5:47 pm
compassionate and kind. we deserve a leader who sees the dignity and humanity in all of us and who will encourage us to see the better angels in one another. we deserve a leader who sees our diversity not as a threat but as a blessing. a leader who sees us not as rich or poor but as hardworking folks doing the best we can with what we've got. a leader who sees us not as democrats and republicans but as neighbors and friends who all love this country. who sees us not just as black or white, immigrant or native born but as brothers and sisters who are all infinitely worthy, all an important part of this great american story. and i am here tonight because i believe with all my heart and
5:48 pm

might of our arms and extraordinary valor of our troops but with the power of our ideas, to shape a changing america so that everybody belongs and everybody has a part. everybody has a responsibility. and we didn't know when we began that america would fall into the worst economic crisis of our lifetimes. but in the face of great challenges and in the face of entrenched interests, in the face of, in some cases, unprecedented obstruction and a cynical washington, we stayed with it. the american people stayed with it. and because of your resilience, because of your strength, because of your faith, we turned yes we can into yes, we did.

5:56 pm
bin laden and almost every country on earth sees america as stronger and more respected today than they did eight years ago. in fact, because bill clinton is here, i did some math, a little arithmetic. under the last two republican presidents, job growth was basically flat. deficits went up. over our two democratic presidencies, jobs went up by more than 30 million, deficits went down, millions more americans gained health insurance, oh, yes, with democrats in charge, america is stronger. those are just the facts. and with just one more day to

philadelph philadelphia, the choice you face when you step into that voting booth could not be more clear and could not be more serious. on the economy, donald trump is uniquely unqualified to be our chief executive. that's why most ceos and economists don't support him. he would trigger a reckless war trade that strips jobs, strip 20 million americans of their health insurance, roll back the new rules designed to check wall street recklessness and protect consumers and roll back the regulations we put in place to preserve this planet for our kids. on foreign policy, donald trump is temperamentally unfit to be president. he lacks a basic understanding of the world, justifies torture, suggests abandoning our allies. over the weekend, his campaign
5:59 pm
took away his twitterccount because he's erratic. if his closest advisers don't trust him to tweet, why would any of us trust him with the nuclear codes? more than his policies or his plans, though, throughout his campaign, donald trump has shown utter contempt for the values that make this nation great. anyone who sees women as objects, minorities and immigrants as interior, other face as presumptively unamerican, cannot lead this diverse, dynamic, big-hearted country that we love. and so all of this should give you reason enough to vote tomorrow. but you don't just have to vote
6:00 pm
against someone. you have somebody extraordinary to vote for. philadelphia, you've got someone outstanding to vote for in hillary clinton. i'll be honest, i've had to bite my tongue after all of the nonsense that people have said about this election. i can only imagine what bill and chelsea have been going through, the vicious, crazy attacks, the double standards applied to her. they are like nothing we have ever seen before. and what makes it worse is that most of the people saying this stuff, they don't really believe it. they know better. don't forget, when hillary was a senator, when she was my secretary of state, she was really popular. people saw how effective she was, how she crossed party lines
