examiner. >> we are seeing in early voting numbers what do you think this is all about? >> you know whaing we're with really seeing, i mean, this is what is really interesting about this. is that midterm elections traditionally, obviously, have much e lower turnout than presidentials and democrats usually do not perform well do not turn out in midterm elections. but what we are seeing is -- really significant increases in early voting in the states that have early voting. i think it is saying as you said on both sides because we can't necessarily tell who the universe is that is out there early voting but there's no question that -- this is unprecedented as far as how the american people see the value of the midterm election. is it a check and balance or is it -- is it a referendum to continue policies of president trump? >> it is possible that midterm elections christianen we see
more voters than we did -- for the last presidential election. i kid you not. there's anger also on both sides. what matter kristin do you think that anger is helping? >> i think trump is mobilizing both sides. you have the the gop who, you know, these voters love trump so he mobilize it is them but then you have democrats running on perceived hatred of trump so they're mobilized as well but these mid terms are a moment of truth for this presidency. if the republicans are able to retain congressional control, whether or not they are it is beginning to be a referendum on trump unconventional leadership style but also his policies and stakeses really couldn't be higher. if the democrats retake either chamber, the result is beginning to be a legislative stalemate and potential impeachment of trump by a house led by nancy pelosi someone who is probably not going to show much restraint given power. but right now -- >> i tend to disagree with that. take back the house and we'll see, though, at this point anything could happen. >> your prediction capri?
>> i do believe that the democrats are going to take the house. i do think that the republicans will -- narrowly retain control of the united states senate. i agree with christian that we're going to -- that's going to result in gridlock. i do not think that in in democs and republicans are at large we don't know if nancy pelosi will be leader but number two i don't think that it is smart and most democrats agree to go on hard impeachment plan as soon as they get into power. democrats need to figure out a way to work with president trump. if they want to have any shot in controlling the chamber, and be competitive in 2020 or agree to pay directly into president trump's hands and let's not forget trump has the toobility veto so nobody should be afraid that everything is going to get unraveled like tax reform. >> what specific races are you ladies watching -- that could change it all and i know in some pivotal house races particularly in virginia. there's rain -- there's rain in in the forecastn
polling in 2016 what you think is going to happen doesn't happen, and then you have the weather as a factor. kristin. >> i'm looking at texas very closely, of course, ted cruz is doing better than beto o'rourke, however, there's so much enthusiasm for beto in texas that states that's very conservative so fascinated by that race but, of course, also florida -- we have missouri nevada is only republican up for reelection where trump lost and in the congressional races i'm watching virginia's 7 theth district in colorado's 6th very closely. >> and so are we kristin capri thank you so much. >> thank you we'll see what happens today. now to the midterms in your money. what result is best for investors jonathon is here. good morning. >> great to be with you cheryl. good morning. >> whether it is far that bank tech industrial and even consumer names that we followed there's an impact either way.
what is your -- what is your best case scenario for investors? >> well historically markets should be pup a year from now cheryl no matter who wins elections today. i promise you. these results housers will move markets, as i said historically it is bullish on average since 1946 markets are up 100% at the time after midterms one year later regardless of who wins. but i think cheryl, this time, it is different. i mean, we are now nine years into historic expansion from everything from horrible october we have a stock market to trade, and tariffs, and interest rates innumerable factors facing this economy in particular that's why elections are so important. >> what are things that could happen with gridlock and this could be good for the pharmaceutical sector because even though president is talked about -- limiting and controlling drug prices, if it is believed in goldman sachs talked about this that actually if we get a blue wave for the house in particular, that that mean that
pharmaceutical prices will stay the same and that is a good thing for that sector. do you agree? >> yeah. few sectors that are impacted by what happened in washington -- then pharmaceuticals as you said and interestingly cheryl even as -- technology stocks and even some of the material stocks auto makers selling off merck pfizer is also doing well so -- we're seeing some of rotation in to more it shall to say stable if you will parts of the economy. like pharmaceuticals, as election jitters continue to grow. >> it seems, though, when it comes to technology and internet names that it is really not going to matter what happens today and tomorrow morning. because either way regulations seem to be on the table. whether it is in europe or in the united states for the stocks in particular is that correct assessment there? >> yeah, that's really i think my fear a lot of market is that technology stocks cheryl they've been lead percent but even yesterday we saw more 52 week
low it is than highs if those tech stocks again apple now in corruption territory if amazon, facebook can't get off the mat it is difficult regardless of who wins today for the market to put legs and as you said the fact regulation seems unevitable thus far means that election is even more important. >> i will tell viewers if you want to start geeking out watch futures at the 6 p.m. eastern time because we'll get results kentucky and indiana and georgia, florida, all of those states are beginning to kind of give us a sense early on of where we're going to go overnight i think that's going to be a early indicator. >> thank you john ton appreciate. let's take a look at how futures are shaping up on this election day we have a mixed bag yesterday. we do have a down market at 5:12 this tuesday morning dow down 48 nasdaq down 32. will president trump holding 11

cycle about 5.2 billion spent by dems to the 2.2 chain of spending from the republicans. is that a problem, john democrats are fired up. >> there's no doubt about it on the candidates side that democrats have had a fundraising advantage but i always tell my clients you don't necessarily have to have more money than your opponent but enough to get your message out and ill tell you this. that message always trumps money. and in this case, the republicans have a great message which is -- you're better off now than you were two years ago. so i wouldn't count republicans out and there's one other key component in spending battle to watch and that's what different parties are spending you look at the what the republican national committee has raised and spent compared to what democratic national committee has spent there's a 10 to one spending advantage that's because parties are ones that do the field organizing, that move people to the polls on election day. and you're looking at so many tight races across the nation

is that something that voters are going to take into the boots today, john? >> it is actually outrageous and we saw prior to initial kavanaugh hearings there was enthusiasm gap between republican and in thes only a 20 point gap in some polls. kavanaugh confirmation hear physician neutralized that gap both sides are charged up but in this home stretch, literally whether they are people in the republican party that are speaking about whether they stay at home or sit on couch or go to vote and this news shows you there's something at stake because there's very likely in next two years to be one more supreme court vacancy, that we may go through this drill again, and if republicans lose control of the senate judiciary committee and financial services i know -- no, a lot at stake. really is. and we're out of time but john if you're party is energized as you two are are morning it will be a heck of a day. thanks for having us.

couple of year -- i think that could get a little bit ugly. the best outcome for stocks historically has been a divided senate in congress. gridlock is good. because the market knows what to expect because problem most likely very little change and in this day and age i don't see much compromise. i think if we wake up tomorrow on republicans hold the house and they hold senate, you will see a short-term equity rout. prchg seeing record balances and 401(k) of 106,500 we're see the number of 401(k) millionaires also at a record at 187,000. a lot of people are saying today yeah, we are doing better now than we did two years ago and we want this to continue. >> look, what i would say is what changed control in 2010, you know there was exploding budget deficit, obamacare a stimulus that didn't really work and economy that hadn't fully recovered from a crisis in 2006, last time we have a major change unpopularity of iraq war all

give the house to democrats. party in power loses house streets historically in 35 out of the 38 since civil war got it that's what you expect there. but what about the senate? do republicans hold it? >> well senate is a little bit more difficult to predict i think we don't have the kind of medicine that we have for the the house depends so much on the -- seats and play, and my, my guess is -- my hunch is hinge on three race, the one in nevada, arizona, and missouri. if republicans hold -- [inaudible conversations] >> uh-huh professor i think we're losing your reception right now. but as a professor was say -- nevada, arizona, and missouri may determine it for the senate, the president was campaigning in missouri seven times so that shows you how important we have you back that race is. garrett our reporter earlier was telling us it is the majority of seats that can be picked up that is important right now.
you don't see any number bigger than three here do you for republicanses in the senate? >> i -- i don't. i think these -- i think they have other close ones that is not deny that. a lot of things are close, florida is close. indiana is close. but from what i see now i would think those states will stay in democratic hands and so i think it is like nevada particularly -- hillary clinton won that, won that state in 2016 is a possibility. >> all right professor norpoth thank you very much. >> thank you. we have a lot more coming up this morning. iran threatening to break newly imposed u.s. sanctions on the country we're looking at oil down a quarter of a percent and traders take on what's next. be right back. - at athene, we think it's time

not with the sanctions and what's the story with pump prices for americans? >> you know, yes, i think they ultimately will still feel the pain. i don't think we are going to see lower for longer. here is a trader psychology for you, a lot of guys jumped in and bought oil that for the right reason we had bullish news around the corner, remember 80 to 100 calls, well, when you do that, if you want to buy fundamentally or technically, there has somebody somebody that comes in behind you and will buy it for a profit. you want the market to go up. you need somebody to let you out of trade. we haven't attracted new buyers. the folks that bought oil have looked around and there hasn't been anybody to sell it to.
that's what happens. they all need new people to come in the market and let them out of positions and that's what's going on now. lauren: yeah, basically the unexpected and real quick, scott, any predictions for what happens today as americans head to polls, you're in chicago in. >> yeah, i like your last guest, the house will go to democrats and the senate will still be republican and markets have digested that, if both republican the market will kind of like that and if both democratic the market won't kind of like it. after the numbers we got last week things are going well, economy is strong, it'll be okay. cheryl: scott shellady in chicago, thank you very much, we send it over to maria bartiromo. maria, happy election day. maria: to you, thank you so much. we will see you in a few minutes. good morning, everyone, time has arrived. i'm maria bartiromo, tuesday november 6th, election day, your top stories right now before 6:00 a.m. on the east coast on what promises to be a busy day,
