[laughs] i am jim see you tomorrow the "news with shepard smith" i'm shepard smith on cnbc. and this is the news >> how long have you guys been out here so far? >> about four hours. >> long lines. and ballot glitches for days voter overload bureaucratic mismanagement voter suppression? what's going on here the plot thickens. same group, different target the plan to kidnap a second governor revealed in fbi testimony. i'm not hostile to the aca. >> health care, abortion rights, and racial justice >> it's a difficult one for us like it is for americans all over the country >> americans hear from judge amy
12:01 am
coney barrett. plus -- >> i definitely thought i was going to get hurt. >> the terrifying run-in a jogger had with this mountain lion >> we speak with the man live tonight. >> announcer: live from cnbc global headquarters, the facts, the truth, the news with shepard smith. and good evening three weeks to the election now. early voting happening at this moment in 46 states. voter turnout continues to be record shattering and in some cases overwhelming take a look at these long lines in texas where early in-person voting kicked off just today. and some people report they had to wait for hours to cast their ballot joe biden spent the day in florida with a focus on senior citizens and black voters. right now president trump is set to speak at a campaign rally in johnstown, pennsylvania. it's one of his airport rallies where he flies in, speaks, and flies out on air force one nearly 12 million americans have
12:02 am
already voted. we've never seen numbers like this take texas early voting comes on the heels of a federal appeals court ruling just yesterday that that state can limit counties to just one drop-off spot, just one per county so what does that mean well, look at harris county. census figures show 4.7 million people live there. 26 states have a smaller population than that yet harris county like all the rest in texas has one drop box it's at the arena where the houston texans play football dr. jill biden is hosting a get out the vote rally there now priscilla thompson in houston. priscilla, day one of early voting there and really, how's it going >> reporter: it has been a record-breaking day here, shep more than 117,000 people have cast ballots in hashs county that is a record for any period of early voting in the county's history. and as you can see, that voting
12:03 am
is still going on. you take a look over here, you can see that drive-in voting is still under way here in this parking lot. folks are able to pull in and cast their ballot electronically and then you know, head on their way without ever having to get out of their car and you know, polls are closing in less than an hour so things are beginning to wind down here. but you mentioned that absentee ballot drop-off location this is it, right behind me. this is the one place in the county where folks are able to drop off those absentee ballots. there's been a steady stream of folks here today we're just under an hour until polls close. so it's slowed down a bit. but one of the key issues here is going to be in the coming weeks whenever folks can no longer -- the timeline is too tight to mail in those ballots is this site going to become overwhelmed with people trying to drop them off this person shep >> priscilla thompson in houston. now georgia. early voters casting again a record number of ballots they did it after waiting for hours at many polling stations
12:04 am
across the state according to georgia's secretary of state more than 126,000 people voted in person early on monday that's a 41% increase over the first day back in 2016 local coverage now, wxia's hope ford live at a polling precinct in duluth just outside atlanta hi, hope >> reporter: people in this line have been waiting for about two hours to vote, which is short in comparison to some of the wait times we have seen both yesterday and today. the polls actually just closed that means all these people right here will still get a chance to vote, but people who are still showing up as we see, there are a couple people still showing up, we will have to come back tomorrow. and we have seen that continuously throughout georgia. those long wait times today. people came a little bit more prepared this time they had chairs, they had books, they had umbrellas people in a neighboring county, they started lining up at 4:00 a.m. to make sure they had a chance to do what they really waited all year to do, which is vote now, we have still had some of
12:05 am
those technical issues today that we saw also yesterday as well there have been technical issues we actually also found out that people have been canceling their absentee ballots to show up to vote in person because they don't trust the mail-in process here in georgia. and we just found out, we talked to the elections director in gwinnett county where we are right now just a few minutes ago, and they told us that they are going to add more ballot marking stations to help alleviate some of these wait times. the wait time got up to eight hours today in some parts of -- do what they can by adding more -- >> hope ford with some technical issues of her own in georgia well, today's the last day to register to vote in virginia but there were problems there too. this time technical. officials say somebody cut a cable this morning and that shut down some state websites they came back up this afternoon, but by then virginians were wanting more time to register and complaining. the thing is there's nothing in the statute to allow for that. again, this is all new and confusing like everything covid. confusing and sometimes overwhelming because record
12:06 am
numbers of voters are trying to cast their ballots or in some way participate early. lots of questions. can the system handle it are there efforts to get in the way? will voters trust the outcome? let's turn to larry sabato he is the director of the university of virginia center for politics professor sabato, good to see you and thank you. >> thank you, shep >> a cut cable in virginia, misprinted ballots in spots across the nation, some wrong names, some wrong addresses. not everywhere but there have been glitches. can the system handle this >> we're going to find out some days i don't think so like today here in virginia with that cut cable. of all the days for the system to shut down, the last day to register to vote it makes you wonder, are these things really accidents or as many people have e-mailed me today were they intentional in some fashion i don't think they were
12:07 am
intentional. but you know, this is because first of all the system wasn't built to handle maybe half the vote cast ahead of election day. it's also partly a result of partisans that certain voting measures favor them and they want to minimize the methods that don't that leads to voter suppression. >> help the viewers understand the facts about what's happening in texas and georgia. >> let's take texas, for example. i try to be as kind as i can be, but i have got to say that the decision by governor abbott in texas to limit the voter -- the vote drop-off boxes to one per county when some counties have very little population and harris county, the houston area, has millions of people, as you mentioned. one drop box for votes isn't it obvious harris county, houston, is a democratic area? it will produce a big margin for democrats, assuming people are actually able to vote.
12:08 am
>> so you're talking voter suppression. >> absolutely that is voter suppression. nobody is going to prove otherwise. that is voter suppression, underlined ten times. >> given all that we've heard, what should voters expect, larry, on election night >> given that a good piece of the voting will be done ahead of time but can't be opened in many states until the polls close at 7:00 p.m. or 8:00 p.m., or whenever they close locally, you're going to have to have all of those paper ballots first taken out of the envelopes in some states, others will have already done that, but then count it you know, sent through a machine. maybe partisans will want to double-check there's simply no way to do it quickly when you're talking about hundreds of thousands of ballots in some states, millions and millions across the country.
12:09 am
so people who want an election night need to remember if there's not a landslide, then you're talking about election week let's just all pray it doesn't go beyond a week. >> in absence of a landslide, as you put it, what are your concerns about how candidates may react? >> i'm very concerned, particularly, to be honest, about president trump at the national level, and some state candidates who are going to take the voting day, november 3rd voting, which will probably be released first in most states, and use that to claim victory when in fact the election day vote is going to be very substantially republican the pre-election vote is going to be very substantially democratic, but it won't all be counted until the next day or later in the week. so if you're a republican candidate or you're president trump, you go out there and declare victory, then your supporters will think that any
12:10 am
attempt to count the other votes and to make the election go the other way is voter fraud, which is malarkey, but we all know that people are gullible >> professor sabato from uva, thank you. >> thank you, shep. the plot to kidnap the governor of virginia thickens. and now there's more brand new today, the feds say some of the same members of the anti-government paramilitary groups also considered abducting the governor of virginia, ralph northam. an fbi agent testified today that the suspects discussed taking the governors because of their coronavirus lockdown orders as we reported here, investigators say the men planned to snatch michigan's governor from her vacation home, put her on trial for treason and incite a civil war some of the suspects were there at lockdown protests in michigan back in april when heavily armed demonstrators stormed the state
12:11 am
capitol building before those lockdown protests president trump tweeted "liberate michigan" and "liberate virginia." today governor northam said lik rhetoric like that needs to stop >> when language is used such as liberate virginia people find meaning in those words and thus these things happen and that's regreltable. >> let's get more. nbc news investigative correspondent tom winter now >> reporter: shep, that plot to kidnap the governor of virginia, ralph northam, certainly grabbed a lot of the attention at today's hearing, and it's a detention hearing basically to figure out if they can keep the people who were involved, the six people charged in this plot, to kidnap michigan's governor gretchen whitmer, if they can somehow keep them in jail in custody pending this trial we got new details about how this investigation started to unravel, specifically the june 6th meeting, which is one of these key meetings that the fbi says they were able to surveil, that happened in dublin, ohio,
12:12 am
northwest of columbus, a nice community there where people, according to the fbi agent who testified today, from four or five different state came together to talk about these plots, talk about covid-19 restrictions and their concerns and really their anger that they had towards the decisions made by governors in several states they talked about the plot, they talked about using encrypted messaging apps, how they would use code names for each other's names on those apps, how they would change different apps thinking they were trying to outsmart the fbi which according it their testimony today had a confidential informant that kept being moved to all those chats with them. they had a mole in their midst and they knew nothing about it, shep >> tom winter, thanks. some movement today on the coronavirus relief bill. congress has tried for months apparently to getting? done now the senate majority leader mitch mcconnell says he's planning a vote on a stimulus bill this month. sometime after the senate returns obviously on monday. he says the plan is to include targeted relief for american
12:13 am
workers. that's a quote and new funding for small business loans that's through the paycheck protection program, or ppp mitch mcconnell says he'll have enough time to do that and confirm judge amy coney barrett. democrats, of course, could dismiss this proposal as not enough for people who need help. right now frankly there's no bill to see, and democrats haven't commented on the record. covid watch now. two setbacks today in the fight against the deadly pandemic. one on the antibody front, the other in the race for a vaccine. >> there was the adverse event. >> an unexplained illness causing a key coronavirus vaccine trial to pause what this means for the battle against covid-19. >> we cannot let ourselves remain divided. >> we are more successful now than we've ever been before. >> president trump in pennsylvania, joe biden in florida. what's the status of the race just three weeks till the vote
12:14 am
destroyed and devastated living through hurricane delta in her own words >> it's just unbelievable. but we'll rebuild. >> announcer: the facts, the truth, "the news with shepard smith" back in 60 seconds. ♪ ♪ yeah that's all me. ♪ nothing and me go hand in hand ♪ ♪ nothing on my skin ♪ that's my new plan. ♪ nothing is everything. keep your skin clearer with skyrizi. 3 out of 4 people achieved 90% clearer skin at 4 months. of those, nearly 9 out of 10 sustained it through 1 year. and skyrizi is 4 doses a year, after 2 starter doses. ♪ i see nothing in a different way ♪ ♪ and it's my moment so i just gotta say ♪ ♪ nothing is everything skyrizi may increase your risk of infections and lower your ability to fight them. before treatment your doctor should check you for infections and tuberculosis. tell your doctor if you have an infection or symptoms such as fevers, sweats,
12:15 am
chills, muscle aches or coughs, or if you plan to or recently received a vaccine. ♪ nothing is everything ask your dermatologist about skyrizi. ♪ covid watch. coronavirus cases rising across our nation the united states is averaging nearly 50,000 new cases every day over the past week that is the highest in nearly two months, according to johns hopkins. right now 41 states are reporting an increase. the states here in red are getting hid the harders. ohio showing a spike in new cases, and today ohio's governor mike dewine warned that we could have a tough winter ahead with more people moving back indoors. dr. anthony fauci said the same thing when i spoke with him last night. >> we have a baseline of infections now that vary between
12:16 am
40,000 and 50,000 a day. that's a bad place to be when you're going into the cooler weather of the fall and colder weather of the winter. >> dr. fauci said americans need to follow the basic health protocols, wear masks, keep distancing and wash your hands so that we can, as he puts it, turn this around two bumps along the road toward a covid vac- -- or treatment today. johnson & johnson is the first it paused a vaccine trial. officials say one of its volunteers has an unexplained illness. and then this afternoon eli lilly paused a trial for its antibody treatment that company cites safety concerns let's turn to meg tirrell now. what do these developments mean and should people be concerned about them, meg? >> hi, shep. we've gotten very limited information on these events right now, but experts tell us based on what we do know even though these are moving at
12:17 am
record paces what these pauses show is that the system is actually putting the right safety checks in place let's start with eli lilly we just got that information this afternoon this company is developing antibody drugs to treat covid-19 that of course is the same approach that was used to treat the president, although the drug given to him was made by regeneron. eli lilly confirmed today that one of its antibody drug trials has been paused out of what it calls an abundance of caution to ensure the safety of the patients in the trial. but we don't know anything nurt furt right now last night johnson & johnson confirmed it temporarily paused dosing in its covid-19 vaccine trials because of an unexplained illness in a participant and we have no more details yet there either but dr. eric topol said there's no reason yet for concern. >> this means the system is working, that independent data and safety monitoring boards are reviewing the data, getting all the facts together, and it's expected
12:18 am
every large clinical trial runs into these things at one point or another pretty much >> now, he also said it is crucial for public trust that the companies be transparent shep >> meg tirrell, thanks. remember, hospitalizations are a lagging indicator, right well, new today, the number of people ending up in a hospital from covid-19 increased in 42 states over the past week that's from johns hopkins. for context we turn to dr. esther chu, professor of emergency medicine at oregon health and science university. dr. chu, thank you >> nice to be here, shep. >> doctor, cases are spiking, hospitalizations are up. are hospitals and medical professional prepared for the surge? can the system handle it >> well, there's going to be a business of an unknown factor here, but i think we have some good news and we have some maybe concerning news. the good news is that we spent all spring preparing for just
12:19 am
this we didn't know what we were getting in terms of covid. there were some projection that's had us way over baseline capacity so we spent much of the spring and early summer building in extra capacity, oftentimes extra physic physical capacity, transforming our spaces so we could accommodate many more people and creating protocols and procedures so that we were equipped to handle all kinds of surge in patients while also keeping staff and patients safe from contracting the disease so we're in a totally different situation than we were in the fall in that we've invested a lot of time and resources to be prepared for almost anything i think the issue is we're now headed into covid colliding with influenza and we just can't anticipate how much extra volume those colliding viruses will cause us >> doctor, since you mentioned that, there are some indications, correct me if i'm
12:20 am
wrong, from south america where flu happens at a different time of year, that all the masks and all the hand washing and all the pay attention has made flu not so bad could that happen here and is that what you're seeing or do you know yet >> we don't know it yet because flu hasn't hit us. but you're right, things like social distancing, face mask wearing, extra hand washing, those things will actually affect any virus so it's possible we'll see different epidemiologic patterns this year. because of what we're doing for covid. it's way too early to tell, and of course all these things depend on people actually doing these things, and in places where people are not as careful for covid, i think there would not be as much of a chance that it could curb flu as well. >> areas have been identified across the country, some in the pacific northwest, some in the midwest, there are other areas, you know them, we've talked about them in those areas, with this combination of flu and the surge which you and all of your colleagues are predicting in covid-19, are you concerned about ability to handle things there?
12:21 am
>> we are concerned everywhere you know, some of the things i've mentioned we have taken care of. a lot of protocols, policies and plans for surge, but i will tell you there were some fixed resources we haven't managed to make a dent in things like personal protective equipment. we have not stopped running out of it. >> you're still running out of ppp. you don't have enough masks, you don't have enough gowns, you don't have enough for hospital workers, even still? >> we are still reusing and re-reusing things that are normally single-use items like n95 masks. >> why why isn't there enough for our doctors and nurses >> it's the big question part of it is that these supply chains are very complicated and cannot be ramped up quickly. part of it is we haven't mobilized existing resources by invoking the defense production act.ction
12:22 am
act. part of it is there's worldwide demand since this epidemic has affected everybody so, it's really multifactorial. but all these months have not solved this problem. >> so there's not enough and if we don't want to have a surge and put you and your colleagues and our heroes across the nation who are frontline medical people at risk, we've got to do our part wear our stuff and wash our hands. is that a bottom line? >> that is the bottom line the only thing we can do to allow health systems to function well and give the sickest of people the best care is to do as much as we can upstream to limit the number of people who come to us so mask wearing, social distancing, avoiding large indoor gatherings. these have never been more crucial. >> dr. esther choo, it's great to see you thank you for your service we'll speak with you again soon. testing is important it's not everything but it's important.
12:23 am
in china they've tested more than 3 million people in one city, qingdao. that's a port city south of beijing. out of more than 1 million tests returned, zero have come back positive not one. that's the report from qingdao's health department. but beijing says at least six cases were found over the last day. which as you might imagine raises fresh concerns about china's reporting of the deadly virus. other places, covid is gripping europe hear this. more than 566,000 cases confirmed over the past week in europe alone and that is close to a 50% increase from the previous week. fall surge anyone? but despite the lockdowns, the eu is still trying to make sure people and goods can move freely in some areas, establishing red, orange and green zones so in green zones where the virus infections are low travel won't be as restrictive. in orange and red zones, tighter restrictions will remain in place. it's all kind of complicated
12:24 am
but here's nbc's matt bradley in paris on how europe is handling all of this. >> reporter: yeah, shep, well, here in france the prime minister said that the second wave is here that's as france saw a three-month high in the number of icu patients with covid the head of the health service said as early as next week, 90% of icu beds here in paris could be occupied with covid patients. that's why french authorities are considering imposing a nighttime curfew that decision could come as early as tomorrow. now, in britain across the channel, 143 people died from covid in the last 24 hours that's a four-month high that comes as 17,000 new cases were just reported today now, in italy pickup games among friends banned, parties among more than six people who don't live together also banned. and that's new restriction that's the second time in a week the italians have imposed yet more restrictions. and you know, none of these
12:25 am
restrictions across europe are popular at all, shep in spain, actually the prime minister had to impose a state of emergency to force authorities in the capital madrid to accept a kind of partial lockdown on that city. and that's as cases nationwide in spain have been rising by something around 12,000 per day. shep >> matt bradley from paris dealing with covid is hard, right? and the way we've dealt with it as a society, even as friends and neighbors, has left us in some cases pretty divided. there's fear and there's fatigue. and lots of people are worn out from all of it here's cnbc's contessa brewer. >> reporter: the pandemic fatigue is obvious >> here we are >> reporter: at political rallies, parties and play dates. with infection rates on the rise, the nation's health leaders are begging americans to avoid crowds and stay outdoors, wash hands and wear masks. >> those simple things, as
12:26 am
simple as they sound, can certainly turn around the spikes that we see. >> reporter: there is a whole panorama of perspectives on pandemic protection. for those who are still wiping down grocery deliveries to those who refuse to alter their behavior at all. most of us fall somewhere in the middle >> thinking about like i'm in a group that does this or i'm in a group dhauz that doesn't necessarily describe each individual's decision day to day. >> reporter: colin glom considers himself cautious yet -- >> you travel and you kind of -- you kind of throw caution to the wind a little bit. >> reporter: seven months into the global pandemic flights around the country, dinner with friends. his discipline is waning >> it's very, very difficult to live in a high-stress environment, to think about all the precautions you have to take and think that there's something sinister around the corner all the time that's going to get you. and that really does take its toll mentally and emotionally and physically on people >> reporter: and so psychologists say people gamble, taking risks with their health and the health of others >> there's only a certain amount
12:27 am
of stamina or, you know, diligence or kind of lik helping others that can be at this elevated level that can be sustained so long. you sort of run out of steam >> reporter: in the meantime we're hearing so much noise over masks versus anti-masks, but a "national geographic" poll shows 92% of americans say they do wear masks when leaving their house. 74% say they always do that's a 25% increase since july, although of course the high-profile videos on social media of the anti-mask versus masks grab our attention, shep >> they certainly do contessa brewer, thanks so much. judge amy coney barrett's second day on capitol hill questioned on women's rights, white supremacy, and deciding the election in the courts and next, how she answered a major question on the affordable care act plus, we'll revisit lake charles and the aftermath of

before we talk about tax-s-audrey's expecting... new? -twins! ♪ we'd be closer to the twins. change in plans. at fidelity, a change in plans is always part of the plan.
12:30 am
i'm shepard smith on cnbc. it's the bottom of the hour. time for the top of the news a major ruling late breaking today from the u.s. supreme court. here it is -- the trump i'm shepard smith on cnbc. it's the bottom of the hour. time for the top of the news a major ruling late breaking today from the u.s. supreme court. here it is -- the trump administration can shut down the census count ahead of schedule the result -- the census bureau can send the findings not include undocumented immigrants by the end of the year here's the back story.
12:31 am
the pandemic slowed down the census work. so it reported it would finish counting by the end of this month and submit all the work next april that's past the deadline, the one set by statue. the trump administration asked for a change and the supreme court ruled it proper. this matters because if you exclude undocumented immigrants they don't get counted and republicans see that as a win for them no jurist's signature or reasons for their actions today which is normal for a case like this. but justice sonia sotomayor did dissent and say the harms associated with an inaccurate census are avoidable and intolerable. we'll have a new supreme court, barring something unforeseen it's day two of the confirmation hearings for the supreme court nominee amy coney barrett. the hearing is still under way started at 9:00 this morning they took a break in the afternoon. now they're back at it and for the first time, here's a live picture, senators get to question her republicans are all in for democrats there are two main
12:32 am
topics today, health care and women's right to choose. on affordable care act democratic senators say barrett's confirmation will put a lot of americans' health insurance under threat and on women's reproductive rights they say barrett on the court means roe v. wade will be overturned cnbc's ilan mui. what did judge barrett reveal on her views on those two particular issues? >> shep, barrett tried to channel the woman she would replace on the bench, ruth bader ginsburg, who famously said that an impartial judge gives no hint or forecast in any case, no matter what the issue may be >> judges can't just wake up one day and say i have an agenda, i like guns, i hate guns, i like abortion, i hate abortion and walk in like a royal queen and impose their will on the world you have to wait for cases and controversies, which is the language of the constitution, to wind their way through the process. >> reporter: that didn't stop senators from trying to pin her
12:33 am
down the supreme court is scheduled to hear arguments over the affordable care act just one week after the election. and barrett said she's not on a mission to destroy the law and she swatted away speculation that the white house had asked her to commit to a position. >> if confirmed, is your goal repealing the affordable care act? >> absolutely not. i was never asked, and if i had have been that would have been a short conversation >> reporter: speaking of the election, barrett would not say if she would recuse herself if the vote on november 3rd were contested, but she swore to put the law above politics >> i certainly hope that all members of the committee have more confidence in my integrity than to think that i would allow myself to be used as a pawn to decide this election for the american people. >> reporter: barrett needed no notes as she fielded questions from senators for more than ten hours. and shep, they'll be back at it again tomorrow >> yilan, thanks
12:34 am
people in southwest louisiana are slowly picking up the pieces from the devastation of hurricanes laura and then delta last week. tonight we check in with a woman from lake charles named wendy harper you may remember her we brought you her story just last week. owner of a home health business. 50 workers helping the sick and elderly. now her business is ruined like so much of the region. here she is again tonight, in her own words. >> it's just been a struggle it truly -- the next day you're just saying what happened? how could these two storms happen within six weeks of each other and 13 miles apart you know, it's just unbelievable fema assistance is very, very slow to come in. that's been a huge challenge since laura. the majority of it is done electronically you can call and stay on the phone on hold for two hours, but they're still going to ask for that documentation to be submitted. well, we didn't have power for 23 days. we still don't have internet at the office i finally got an at&t hot spot in, so i brought that home
12:35 am
we can't give them the documentation they need. it just doesn't exist right now. we get really frustrated here locally because we know if it would be new orleans it would be a whole different story. we kind of joke about it at times saying where's the rock stars with the charity concerts? where is all of that for some reason it doesn't tend to be as much attention on this side of the state. we're resilient, strong people we're going to make it happen. but it would be nice to get some assistance. >> wendy reminds us all lake charles had a pretty good economy before the hurricanes. of course they've been battered by the dip in the oil industry and the ravages of covid-19. but surviving this is going to be tough wendy's biggest fear, she says, that her friends and neighbors will not return after these two evacuations. well, pain for the airliners. delta reports it's lost more than $11 billion in this pandemic that's what's topping cnbc "on the money.
12:36 am
>> delta reports revenue is down 75% from last year 18,000 of its employees have accepted buyouts or early retirement as the company cut costs. but executives say they have some hope for the future they're now predicting sales may not return to where they were for another two years or more. but they are encouraged by interest in travel around thanksgiving and christmas if we're not flying, apparently we're buying sofas ethan allen reports sales are booming. the stock popped today and the company now expects to be profitable at least this quarter. and blastoff for blue origin the first of 2020 for the space company founded by jeff bezos. they call it the new shepard same spelling, no relation it successfully took off this morning from a desert launchpad in west texas. blue origin said it traveled 66 miles way up into the air. both the rocket and the crew capsule returned safely to earth, but of course no astronauts on earth. the payload did includes tests

12:38 am
