1:02 am
to begin early united states, where people have been casting their ballots in the crucial midterm elections, which could see the democrats lose control of congress are pending. the rest of j biters presidency at stake are all 435 seats in the house of representatives where the current democratic majority is just 8. $35.00 or the senate's a 100 seats are being contested. right now. they're equally divided. so a change of control in just one seat could put the republicans in charge. $36.00 states are electing governors and $27.00 are electing their secretary of state who in most places is the official in charge of elections. according to the brookings institution, 345 candidates on the ballot back, donald trump's false claim that the 2020 presidential election was flawed. which means people who reject the last presidential election could end up in charge of
1:03 am
running. it's next one. what we've got to, to correspondence to begin to speak to next. kimberly how get at the white house of but she had the tansy is waiting for us. capitol hill she had. let's start with you . of course, this could give us an indicator when the results are known. whether or not joe biden will be something of a lame duck president for the next couple of years. i've given the most optimistic democratic party models show the deborah crowds losing control of the house of representatives. you need the house of representatives and the senate to pass legislation unless there is enormous bipartisan agreement, which is very rare these days. that means the end of biden's legislative program. however, the senate does remain in play according to the polls that still gives biden of a democrat substantial powers. as far as regulatory agencies goes, as well as judicial appointments go, given how the teachers america, how about how so much ends up at the courses they've. these are very key,
1:04 am
very key powers, which will also be though to the biden. still has a great deal of leeway and discretion when it comes to foreign policy. but when you talk to democratic strategies to say, look, you see, the fact is the said it is to the play that shows how well in some ways our campaign has been, which we have no business, not been completely wiped out in congress. because midterms traditionally are a time when the incumbent party, that incumbent president is punished and look at the indicators, the economy, 40 percent inflation, biden's, popularity ratings, terrible. you know, we should be being published and they say about that shows of their message about democracy being on the ballot has paid off. i think more realistically, according to polls. there was this enormous boost when the supreme court ruled against a woman's right to choose in the summer and midterm elections all about turn out and getting your bass to the polls, even if you're nominally empower or if you're in power and to shake from any complacency they may have and certainly abortion was an issue that angered so many,
1:05 am
not just the base, not as young people, but also suburban women who might be tempted. suburban white women who might be tempted to vote republican, at least that's what they, that's what they told the pollsters over the over the last several months. now the key issues, whether they actually actually went to vote and we'll certainly least give the democrats the ability to retain control of the senate at least all right. she have for now many thanks over to the white house now. and kimberly huck itself waiting for us to had chance. kimberly, of course you've been covering this substantially over the past few days and we've been talking an awful lot about how much. oh notice, president biden has been placing on the knee to defend democracy almost 2 years since the storming of the capital. is that a message though? that is galvanized voters to come out on mass? hi. you know, you think it would be given those images that were so powerful on january 6th, but that doesn't seem to be, it seems to be in the rear view mirror for so many americans. and what seems to be
1:06 am
in the forefront now is the issue of put the food on the table, paying rent, or a mortgage, or even putting fuel in the gas tank of the car, or heating the home. and so that is what is the issue that's driving people to the polls is really the economy. it's inflation that sort of 40 year high. in fact, the pulls indicate that's the driver for about 88 percent of americans that are choosing to vote. and so, even as the president tried to put democracy on the ballot, it didn't seem to resonate americans seem to be more motivated by these financial issues. that's a problem for joe biden. and what we're seeing really is kind of a somber mood here at the white house. you can see the sun is setting behind me. the balance will soon be starting to be counted as the 1st poles will close. here in the east coast of the united states, but in terms of the results, it could still take some time for those to come in. given the fact that the ballot,
1:07 am
sir, now mail in as well as hand tallied and electronic as well. so we could have results that come in in days, it could be weeks even months, given some of the court challenges that already happen filed from $100.00 or more. so already there are questions about how long this results is going to take. but we do know that the pulls seem to indicate that right now, it is favoring the republicans taking over the house of representatives. the senate still very much in play, but that is not going to be good for joe biden. and his legislative agenda for the remainder, 2 years of his 1st presidential term committee alcott love the white house. many thanks. all right, well let's take a look now at 2 of about gram states that could determine who controls congress in a moment will hear from table elizondo in pennsylvania. but 1st of course, sir john hendern, whose life in atlanta, georgia. sir john, why is georgia such a crucial battle in this year? mid terms?
1:08 am
well, within 2 hours, we'll have to go before the pose close. there has already been tremendous interest here in early voting. we had 2500000 people vote. that's more than last mid term in 2018. there are only 7000000 people registered in the state of georgia. and the reason georgia matters is that georgia could decide which party controls the senate . we know that because it did it 2 years ago. that was when this typically republican state, which until then had consistently voted red, elected to democratic senators, along with putting joe biden over the edge in this state as well. one of those senators was rough, a. a warnock is the 1st black senator from the state of georgia. he's also a preacher who preaches from the pulpit that martin luther king one spoke from. and
1:09 am
now this time around in order to keep his seat that he won in a special election a year ago, he's going up against herschel walker. herschel walker is a famous university of georgia football player here. i think the republicans were looking for someone with a big name who could attract big money to this very important race. and they are running neck and neck. most polls show them within one percentage point of each other. so each party has spent a lot of money to try to get the word out. in fact, it's a quarter of a $1000000000.00 has been spent on you. vickers advertising, that is all over the airwaves here. much of it. negative. one of the reasons for that is that there have been a number of revelations about herschel walker. he is anti abortion. 2 of his ex girlfriends say that he has paid for abortions there. and he is also said that black men should be more involved in their families. it's been reveal that he's had 3 legitimate children over the course of his campaign. so a lot of negative advertising on both sides, particular targeting walker,
1:10 am
they're trying to get out the vote because they hope that georgia will put one party over the top. john many thanks don henry, and then atlanta, georgia to gabriel. i was on there now in pittsburgh, pennsylvania, and gabriel, we've had some big hit. is there over the past few days during campaigning, obama trump, and of course a biden himself or another fierce battle underweighed a it sure is, and this is a really interesting race. and a very complex state, it's hitting to a senate candidate said are really polar opposites on one side, on the republican side, you have celebrity doctor met, met oz. he's backed by donald trump and he's a television personality. if you will lose a very smooth speaker, and he was down in the polls throughout the summer and day,
1:11 am
but he's caught up in the last few weeks and not only caught up in some polls, he's actually neck and neck or even slightly ahead of the democratic challenger now, who's that? that's the lieutenant governor john fedor, mon. now he's an interesting guy because he sa pitches himself is kind of a real a man of the people if you will. he's almost never wears a shirt and tie, wears kind of baggy sweat shirts all the time. he's very simple spoken individual. i isa was a mayor of a suburb, small town, just outside of pittsburgh here. and he had a stroke in the middle of this campaign. and actually did not campaign in person for many months. and it's the stroke is actually impeded his ability to verbalize and speak sometimes. so some voters have said they're worried that day he would be able to deal with the high pressure of being in the senate. he so all of this race is very close. the latest polls show that both candidates are about 46 per cent,
1:12 am
is could be a very long night here in pennsylvania, a nail biter indeed. gabriel amazon. they live in pittsburgh. thanks. a rescue ship with 234 migrants on board is heading to france, hoping to be given safe port there. after being refused entry by italy's new far right government. but italy has allowed migrant some 3 other charity bows to disembark. tony berkeley reports from the sicilian port of katana, a cry for help, which had gone unheard by a right wing italian government for 4 days. in sylium port of catania, hundreds of refugees and asylum seekers had been stranded. aboard vessels after being rescued in danger, sees and refused permission to enter the country because they were not deemed as being vulnerable. then a group went on hunger strike thing that they're not going to eat until they're leaving this vessel. they understood that they need to be sick to enter the european union and they said,
1:13 am
we're going to be sick if that's needed. the german registered the humanity one and geo. brent from norway have a total of $250.00 migrants on board. they've been in port for 4 days. during the middle of the night, a 3rd boat, the rise above with 93 migrants, was allowed to docking calabria further up the coast, surprised that 5 days and see now the 3 rescue persons destroyed. and since 5 days had a big challenge with stormy, went outside people now finally, they been allowed to disembark, but it's unclear. are we allowed to stay a 4th boat? the ocean viking carrying 234 people, mostly africans, and women,
1:14 am
and children is heading to france after being refused permission to enter italy. there were small signs earlier in the day. the government of georgia, maloney is beginning to soften its stance on tuesday, immigration police or medical teams were seen boarding, the gio brents for interviews and health jacks. the captains of the ships have refused a government order to leave port. they say they will only leave once all have been allowed to enter italy. italians are divided over the migrants issue. over the centuries the city has gone rich because of the sea. people here know what it can bring and the terror it can inflict terror that migrants know all too well. they don't go into it. i think the government to think about us italians and send them my guns back home. european. so there shouldn't be kept on that boat, they should be allowed all that it's not right. the africans are off. right? oh wow. wow. julia maloney was elected on
1:15 am
a promise of migrant crackdown. she had been silent over the current issue, but in the catania headquarters of her brothers for italy, party, which once house ma salinas fascists in the 2nd world war, they believe their leader is doing the right thing. your pennsauken, the dallas f agenda will. italy is during what of the european nations, or during like in france or spain or cyprus on walter. the defense of the border and the legal entry of migrants is not about political right or left. it's about national interest. but there is strong support for those seeking a safer and better life. it seems that the italian government may be slowly back tracking on its hard line migrant stand. and there appears to be signs of divisions within the administration about just how to handle this situation. at a time when most italians are more focused on a cost of living crisis than people escaping poverty, tony berkeley out as area cataneo port sicily. so to come this half hour,
