tv   Sunday Morning Futures With Maria Bartiromo  FOX News  November 6, 2016 7:00am-8:01am PST

7:00 am
and it's really bad. we have 20 seconds left. >> stay tuned for hillary and wikileaks, not good. >> tom we'll have bret baier and kristen solis anderson and so much more. see ya. >> 6:00 a.m. tomorrow. good morning. we are in the final stretch. the trump and the clinton campaigns barnstorming across the country right now making their final pitches to voters. good morning, everyone. i'm maria bartiromo. thanks for being here. this is "sunday morning futures." jeff sessions and fox news sunday host chris wallace on the state of the race coming up. now less than 48 hours until we head to the polls. plus, where do we stand on the fbi investigation into hillary clinton's e-mails. top benghazi chairman trey gowdy with me live. plus the polls show just how tight this race is.
7:01 am
we are here breaking down the numbers as we look ahead right now on "sunday morning futures." secret service members rushing donald trump off the stage last night in reno, nevada, after reports that someone in the crowd shouted the word, gun. welcome to "sunday morning futures," everybody. we are beginning with the news of the moment. there was no gun that turned up. mr. trump took the stage again after being rushed off moments later. he told the crowd his campaign will not be stopped. he is making his final push this morning in five different states heading to iowa, minnesota, michigan, pennsylvania, and virginia. senator jeff sessions is a trump advisor. he joins us live. senator, thanks for joining us. >> great, maria. nice to be with you. exciting time. >> he's like a machine. i mean, trump is going to be in florida, in north carolina today and tomorrow plus michigan, that rust belt of the country.
7:02 am
how is the team feeling with just two days to go? >> well, they're feeling really good and he is a leader. he's inspired the whole team. he'll be doing twice the stops that hillary clinton will be doing in the last few days. it's been my image for a long time, my vision for him in this last week to barnstorm this country talking directly to millions of americans explaining that he is going to defend their interests and we've had way too much attention on big business, money interest, foreign interest, global interest instead of the people's interests. and so to a large degree that's what this election is about. >> yeah, there's been a lot of back and forth between the two campaigns throughout the year, but in the final few days it feels like trump has pivoted toward let's reveal a positive message. let's talk about what we can do for the country, whereas, hillary clinton so far has been really on that attack mode of trump as opposed to telling people what they are actually
7:03 am
voting for. is that the strategy? >> i couldn't agree more. i couldn't agree more. you ask american people what is it that she will do other than more of the same when three to one american people think we're on the wrong track. and i think the people are right about that. we have not represented this country effectively. she has no plan to get us on the right track. donald trump is a leader. he's a man who believes in results, not talk. he judges himself, what he accomplishes that you can see and touch. i believe he'll be a great president. i think people are seeing that more and more, and i think his instints on every major issue take a country in the right direction. >> well, i know what he has talked about in terms of his economic plan, lower taxes, roll back regulation, tap into energy, perhaps redo trade deals that are not advantageous to america, but what are the other important messages? what's most important for him to communicate to voters with these just two days left?
7:04 am
>> i think he needs to continue to make clear that he's doing this for us, for the average american who goes to work every day and he understands our problems and the problems of decent people who worry about being able to buy new tires for their car, vacation for their family, fees at school. people are struggling out there. he seems to understand that despite, you know, that he's a wealthy businessman. i think he can convey to the american people that his experience puts him in a position to turn this country around and get it growing again. >> and that's what people really need the confidence in, right? believing that, yes, maybe they're taking a risk. maybe they're making a bet on somebody who is an outsider, not in politics, but maybe he also will do something to actually improve the situation. i want to talk about this letter that you penned along with others like rudy giuliani, frank keating, victoria tomsing and
7:05 am
henry mcmaster. this is a letter basically saying, look, it is time for loretta lynch to appoint a special counsel because this brings me to the question of the morning after. regardless who wins, senator, you're going to have the next day and you're going to have real issues on the table. will hillary clinton be able to make important decisions when she's got these investigations overhanging? what does the morning after look like for trump? what do you want to see in terms of this special counsel? >> you should never polite size criminal investigations or prosecutions. we should never do that. but the situation is such and the facts are such that we have an investigation going now and there's a lack of confidence, in fact, zero confidence really that the attorney general is doing anything other than delaying this investigation and not pursuing it effectively. it's been ongoing for over a year. a special prosecutor would have been the appropriate thing to do
7:06 am
to take it out of politics and maybe would already have been completed, but the rumors we hear are that the fbi is being obstructed and delayed and blocked by the department of justice, attorney general lynch. so i think this is a serious matter. we've just got to have integrity in our criminal justice system. everybody deserves a fair day in court, but we need a fair investigation, too, and i'm afraid that's not happening. >> well, in the letter you and your colleagues write, look, the department of justice has been thwarted by top official's refusal to conduct a proper investigation of former secretary of state clinton's e-mail performer and the pay for play ak c play accusations. >> of course there will be a removal of the attorney general. remember, loretta lynch serves
7:07 am
at the pleasure of president obama. she doesn't have a termed office. she knows who appointed her and she knows whose pleasure she serves at. so we need an independent person, person that's not politically connected to. people can have confidence in them to take over this investigation and make sure it's done correctly, to bring charges if needed. hopefully not needed. there are some serious allegations here that the american people need to know fully investigated. you know, fbi director comey did the right thing when he found new evidence, he had no choice but to report to the american congress where he had under oath testified. the investigation was over. he had to correct that and say, this investigation is ongoing now. i'm sure it's significant or else he wouldn't have announced that. >> which is the question i'm trying to get at in terms of hillary clinton. should she win the presidency, what is she going to do in terms of governance? can she govern effectively if
7:08 am
she's got these investigations going on? will she have to change fbi directors knowing that jim comey is pursuing this? or are we going to have four years of, you can't get anything done because of these investigations and the challenge from the republicans like naming new supreme court justices? >> well, it is a dangerous thing, no doubt. it puts a cloud over her tenure as president. what is she going to do about the attorney general? who will she appoint? will there be another loyalist as it appears loretta lynch is and eric holder was during his tenure or will it be someone that has respect of the american people who can handle a complex matter and do it right with confidence. to me at this point it's so off track and so badly handled that an independent counsel is the right thing, i have no doubt about that. >> let me ask you senator. should trump win the presidency, what role will you have in the
7:09 am
administration? >> you know, i've not talked to him about that and don't intend to. i expect to be in the senate unless he asks me to do something else, in which case i would consider that, but i do believe he's moving forward. he's talking to a number of people. he has an effective transition team that's studying the issues out there, like both candidates have, and i believe he would be able to establish an administration of confidence, integrity, people of ability and judgment who can help lead this country and get it back on the right track again. >> we should point out that you've done an incredible amount of work regarding immigration and your immigration policies and your immigration work has helped donald trump in terms of his own stance on keeping borders safe, et cetera. what do you think the most important policy donald trump needs to implement with regard to national security and
7:10 am
immigration? what's happened in the first 100 days should he become president? >> well, there's no doubt that under existing law we can make tremendous improvements in our immigration situation. i just came from the border friday, the arizona border and talked to law enforcement and local people and local sheriffs. they are just utterly frustrated. this administration and hillary clinton is to the left of barack obama. they are just decimating the lawful system, and that encourages more people to come. so if you have a president who lays out a clear agenda that we're going to end the lawlessness. please don't come unless you come properly. the attempt to enter illegally will be declined substantially. it's not that hard. it can be done. it's the right thing for the american people. american people want it and they have the right to demand it. >> senator, thank you.
7:11 am
we'll be watching the developments in the next two days. >> thank you. as the fbi continues sifting through the thousands of newly discovered e-mails on anthony weiner's laptop in connection with the investigation, we'll go to trey gowdy. follow me on twitte twitter @mariabartiromo. we're coming back on "sunday morning futures."
7:12 am
7:13 am
see me. see me. don't stare at me. see me. see me. see me to know that psoriasis is just something that i have. i'm not contagious. see me to know that... ...i won't stop until i find what works. discover cosentyx, a different kind of medicine for moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. proven to help the majority of people find clear or almost clear skin. 8 out of 10 people saw 75% skin clearance at 3 months. while the majority saw 90% clearance.
7:14 am
do not use if you are allergic to cosentyx. before starting, you should be tested for tuberculosis. an increased risk of infections and lowered ability to fight them may occur... ...tell your doctor if you have an infection or symptoms... ...such as fever, sweats, chills, muscle aches or cough. or if you have received a vaccine or plan to. if you have inflammatory bowel disease, tell your doctor if symptoms develop or worsen. serious allergic reactions may occur. see me. see me. see me. on my way. find clear skin... and a clearer path forward. for a different kind of medicine, ask your dermatologist about cosentyx. welcome back. the fbi is still pouring over newly discovered e-mails possibly related to hillary clinton's e-mail investigation and her time as secretary of state. so far investigators are saying only that these are not duplicates but they are e-mails that they did not see during a previous probe of clinton's private server.
7:15 am
representative trey gowdy is with me. he's a member of the house judiciary committee and house oversight and government reform committee. thank you for joining us. >> yes, ma'am, thank you. >> if these are new e-mails, some of these are new e-mails, isn't that right there evidence that the lawmakers were lied to? she said she had given all of the e-mails in. so if the fbi is finding e-mails that they've never seen before, is right there we know that she lied? perjury? >> well, we don't know because we don't know whether these e-mails are work related or personal. if they're personal, then no one is entitled to read her yoga and bridesmaids dresses e-mails. if they're work related, yes. she testified under oath that she turned over all work-related e-mails. frankly, we already know that to be false. this would just be additional evidence that it was false. >> what about this idea that a special counsel, a grand jury needs to be brought in here? i mean, obviously there is now
7:16 am
evidence or speculation, let's call it speculation, that the justice department has been trying to put a clamp on the fbi's work. should an outsider be brought in to handle these deliberations? >> yes, ma'am, and they should have a long time ago. this department of justice has been politicized. i say that with a heavy heart. maria, guess who picks the special prosecutor? the attorney general. so what i would love would be an attorney general who had the foresight and the respect for the justice system to say, you know what, we're going to have an independent woman or man. i'm going to stay out of it. i'm going to recuse myself totally. they can use a grand jury if they want to. that would restore people's trust and confidence in this investigation because the department of justice has lost it. yes, there ought to be a special
7:17 am
prosecutor, but there should have been a year ago. >> how are they still getting away with that, congressman? if there should have been an outside independent person or committee looking at this doing the proper investigate tiff wiv and they have not, and jim comey said no prosecutor would take on this case only to come out 11 days before the election day, this has been botched up because there was no independent counsel overseeing this. >> it's been botched for a lot of reasons. part is the politicization. bad facts make for tough choices but the department of justice could have and should have used that regulation that empowers them in conflict of interest cases or when it's in the public interest, pick a special prosecutor who doesn't give a whit about politics, a woman or man who just follows the facts
7:18 am
and works for that blindfolded woman holding a set of scales instead of having someone who meets on the tarmac with a spouse of the target of the investigation, which is what we have now. >> it's quite extraordinary. you know, when i think back to the extraordinary job you did when you were there and the testimony and jim comey was testifying, you asked him specific questions, did she release all the e-mails? no. did she only use one device as she said? no. and you asked him question after question after question and you were very effective in that testimony, but at the end of the day what can you do about it? are you powerless here because of the politicization that has gone on? >> well, congress is. quite frankly, secretary clinton has trouble with the truth and she's had trouble with the truth throughout most of her professional career. so come tuesday the jury gets to decide what to do next. congress cannot investigate,
7:19 am
cannot convene a grand jury. we don't have the power to do that. if you're tired of the polite at thisization of the department of justice and you're tired of scandal after scandal after stimulus plan for the criminal defense bar or whatever you think you're going to get with her presidency, our framers said, you know what, we're going to go in a separate direction. congress can't fix it but the american people can on tuesday. >> we'll see if that actually impacts them to vote trump. let me ask you this, congressman. let's say hillary clinton wings the presidency. what's your take on how this plays out? she's got this criminal investigation, no doubt, that will follow her. will she be a lame duck for four years? will she be unable to do anything because she's got these investigators investigating her every move and also the republicans will push back in terms of her supreme court appointees? what does the next four years look like in terms of governance if she wins? >> well, let's get the good news
7:20 am
out of the race first. it would be really, really good for criminal defense attorneys in washington. they're going to make a lot of money if she wins on tuesday, because of not just her but people around her from sidney blo bloomenthal on up will be under investigation. whether it's the clinton foundation, her e-mails, whether it's things we don't know about. it's going to be the shortest honeymoon six elizabeth taylor's sixth marriage, but that's what people are going to vote for on tuesday. if that's what they want, she is coming in under a cloud and she's going to pick the department of justice and an attorney general who are not going to be all that interested in investigating his or her boss. that will be frustrating. congress will have to assume the role of oversight or watchdog. we can't prosecute anyone for anything. i tell my fellow citizens, if this is what you want on tuesday, let us know.
7:21 am
>> congressman, thank you. thank you very much. >> yes, ma'am. >> we appreciate it. trey gowdy there. it is the final countdown. two days america goes to the voting booth. a new president will be elected. back in a minute with fox news sunday's chris wallace on deck. my business was built with passion... but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one. with it, i earn unlimited 2% cash back on all of my purchasing. and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means thousands of dollars each year going back into my business...
7:22 am
which adds fuel to my bottom line. what's in your wallet? a combination of see products.. and customers. every on-time arrival is backed by thousands of od employees, ...who make sure the millions of products we ship
7:23 am
arrive without damages. because od employees treat customer service... our most important delivery. od. helping the world keep promises.
7:24 am
our secret weapon is the american people who are saying enough is enough. i mean, i was here at a rally last night in virginia. we had an overflow crowd that was bigger than some of the rallies that i've seen out on the campaign trail over the last several months. >> we're going into election day playing offense, keeping them on defense with states like arizona that we never played in before, not in either of the obama elections. we feel good. when we're on offense, we think
7:25 am
we're in good shape. voters are rejecting the device sis rhetoric they've heard. >> there is indiana governor mike pence along with joel benninson appearing on "fox news sunday" today. both sides racing for the finish line. who may be still mulling over their presidential pitch? joining me is chris wallace. good to see you. >> good to be here. >> great interview. it's funny to see each side turn its own narrative. >> spinning. >> how do you think it's going? >> it certainly is tight. no question about that. two weeks ago it really did seem that hillary clinton was going to sail to a relatively easy victory. i think the fbi announcement by james comey has had an impact. republicans coming home has had an impact. clinton has many more paths to 270 electoral votes than he does, but if he were to -- he's
7:26 am
got to win florida, win ohio, win north carolina, flip a traditionally blue democratic state. if he can do that, he's the next president. >> which is why he's going to the rust belt states today and tomorrow. going to be in michigan. interesting to see hillary clinton going to michigan as well. >> something i asked joel benninson about. she was there on friday. she's there again on monday. the most precious commodity, as you know, maria, in the final days of the cam pain is the candidate's time and the fact that she's in michigan. in a state that we thought was off the board for trump, not possible for him. the fact that she's there is interesting. >> it was a democratic state, obviously dembele leading state, but now she's pulling out the big guns. president obama she's also got going to michigan. it shows you she's nervous about losing that area of the country and trump is doubling down on these rust belt states saying, look, you haven't done that much better in the last eight years. trust me.
7:27 am
appealing to their needs for jobs. >> yeah. i mean, trump always felt that there was his message about trade, about immigration, was a natural fit in like ohio and michigan and pennsylvania and wisconsin. ohio it seems to have been, he seems comfortably ahead there. there are different scenarios, but the easiest path to 270 for him is to take one of those states. if he flips that, he can win it. >> people are not sure about pennsylvania so he can still win it. it will be harder without pennsylvania, but that's a big one. >> right. if he doesn't, that's one of the reasons i think he's pushing in michigan as a kind of plan b. interestingly enough, her big final campaign rally, clinton's, is tomorrow night in pennsylvania and it's the entire clinton family, including former president bill and the entire obama family. i guess she goes on to north
7:28 am
carolina from there but it's interesting because two weeks ago, as i say, it looked fairly comfortable for her. now they're both -- they're both on offense and they're both on defense. she's making an effort in places like arizona and georgia which are typically republican. >> they had a pre-election party on monday night in pennsylvania. the whole clinton clan. let me ask you about this fbi investigation. do you think it has moved the needle in terms of independents and where they're going to go knowing now that she is under fbi investigation and they reopened it? >> if you believe the fox news poll, 21% of independent voters say that they are less likely to vote for clinton because of this. it seemed to have just looking at the polls, it seemed to really have an impact in the first days after the announcement. it was a week ago friday. monday, tuesday, wednesday in the polls he was either ahead or a tie. she seems to have moved out to two or three. still talking inside the margin of error, but the shock value
7:29 am
seems to be wearing off a little bit. of course, it does raise the possibility, she could be the president-elect on wednesday and still under criminal investigation by the fbi. >> right. which is what i was just talking to congressman trey gowdy about and jeff sessions as well. real quick in terms of what happens next and in terms of the gop and their support. this morning we see paul ryan coming out saying, hey, look, i'm ready to campaign with donald trump. too little too late? what do you think, chris? >> well, in terms of the leaders, yes. in terms of the rank and file, it's important and you do see republicans -- she always had an advantage, more democrats supporting her, more republicans supporting him. >> thank you so much. be sure to tune in to "fox news sunday" today at 2:00 p.m. eastern. chris wallace. a brand-new poll out this morning shows one of the candidates pulling ahead. we'll talk to dena perino and
7:30 am
chris stirewalt next on "sunday morning futures." those new glasses?
7:31 am
7:32 am
7:33 am
they are. do i look smarter? yeah, a little. you're making money now, are you investing? well, i've been doing some research. let me introduce you to our broker. how much does he charge? i don't know. okay. uh, do you get your fees back if you're not happy? (dad laughs) wow, you're laughing. that's not the way the world works. well, the world's changing. are you asking enough questions about the way your wealth is managed? wealth management, at charles schwab. welcome back. a new poll to report. a brand-new poll shows hillary clinton's lead has widened over donald trump as we close in on election day. secretary clinton is now ahead by four points according to "the wall street journal"/nbc news poll this morning.
7:34 am
that is up a little bit. joining me is dana perino, co-host of "five" and chris stirewalt. good to see both of you. >> you have a good version. >> congrats on your new show by the way. how do you see the race right now? >> i think it is probably right where it is in terms of the national vote but the battleground states are a little bit tighter. i would defer to my pollster expert over here, but democrats -- 90% of democrats say they will vote for hillary clinton. donald trump, up 80%. turnout is the most important thing. >> what do you think? >> that's 100% right. the broad misunderstanding is that it was about james comey and it wasn't that. the republicans are coming home.
7:35 am
donald trump is not going to do as well among republicans as john kerry or mitt romney, but he is going to do well in certain key groups. >> when you saw what paul ryan said today, i'm ready to campaign with donald trump. really? it's 48 hours away from election day. so this really matters now? or will voters who are supportive of trump be mad at him? >> the supporters -- the hard core supporters of donald trump, here we're talking about 20% of the broader electorate are going to hate paul ryan no matter what. they want him out. there is nothing paul ryan could do, he could go out with a make america great hat on and sing his praises and they would never forgive him. >> he's campaigning very heavily in wisconsin, not just for trump but also for ron johnson who is a senate candidate incumbent who's been running behind all year. that could be one of the surprises tuesday night that he holds onto the seat. >> let's talk about this.
7:36 am
these polls and what we're seeing in terms of the down ballot races are really interesting and important. you think ron johnson wins in wisconsin? >> i'm going out on a limb there. i like to just in case. i maintain former senator evan baye will lose to young. what's interesting about the three tossups are the states that donald trump really needs to win if he's got a path to 270. >> right. two places down ballot that are helping trump would be portman and rubio in ohio and florida. one of the unsung heroes of this election cycle, the national republican senatorial committee. they were quiet. they had money out early for those senators and they had an early voting push in places like nevada, florida, iowa, ohio and arizona. that could help the republicans keep the senate and help donald
7:37 am
trump if he's close. >> it's interesting that you say that because portman and rubio -- portman was pretty positive. he didn't go all out in terms of -- >> he went all out very early. >> very early. >> so then the republicans were able to not have to worry about ohio so much and they could try to figure out a way to save the senate seats in north carolina, nevada. >> and rubio in florida, it's amazing to me how close florida is between clinton and trump. >> could not be closer. >> could not be closer. you agree with dana, chris -- >> i'd better. >> -- that a win for rubio will help trump? >> well, rubio's ground game will help trump by getting more likely republican voters -- voters more likely to vote republican at the top of the ticket. the question is how much does trump hurt rubio versus helping
7:38 am
portman. it goes both ways. in florida rubio's probably a net harm but where you have a lot of older working class workers, portman will help donald trump. >> i'm -- >> you're wisconsin. >> you're rooting for the packers today probably also, too? >> are they playing the broncos? >> no, they're not. >> i always root for the broncos. >> real quick on kelly ayotte. >> hassan. >> you have hillary clinton being pushed all the way to the left by the likes of elizabeth warren, barack obama, bernie sanders. if hassan wins, what does that tell us about where hillary clinton will go? >> i think this is going to be interesting. you've seen them in a big civil war in the past 18 months. let's say that hassan wins up in
7:39 am
new hampshire. guess what happens? if hillary clinton wins the presidency, there's a whole bunch of red state democrats up in 2018. hillary clinton will be pulled in both directions because she would definitely want to try to keep the senate and nothing hillary clinton can ever do will ever be pure enough for the less. >> kelly ayotte will probably win. >> yes, i think so. great analysis as always. top of the hour media buzz. howie is with us. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, maria. the exposion of polls. taking a look at media bias which has permeated this campaign and the coverage of the fbi probe and hillary clinton got an all-star lineup. we have more coming up on "media buzz." >> that's a must watch. thanks, howie. first, the presidential race entering the home stretch. where are the candidates?
7:40 am
get into it with our political panel. mary tif and ed rollins. we're looking ahead on "sunday morning futures." i'm thinking, just by looking in my eyes. but what they didn't know was that i had dry, itchy eyes. i used artificial tears from the moment i woke up... the moment i went to bed. so i finally decided to show my eyes some love,... ...some eyelove. eyelove means having a chat with your eye doctor about your dry eyes because if you're using artificial tears often and still have symptoms, it could be chronic dry eye. it's all about eyelove, my friends. i've never been #1 in anything until i put these babies on. now we're on a winning streak and i'm never taking them off. do i know where i'm going? absolutely. we're going to the playoff. allstate guarantees your rates won't go up just because of an accident. starting the day you sign up. so get accident forgiveness from allstate.
7:41 am
and be better protected from mayhem, like me.
7:42 am
when you're close to the people you love, does psoriasis ever get in the way of a touching moment? if you have moderate to severe psoriasis, you can embrace the chance of completely clear skin with taltz. taltz is proven to give you a chance at completely clear skin. with taltz, up to 90% of patients had a significant improvement of their psoriasis plaques. in fact, 4 out of 10 even achieved completely clear skin. do not use if you are allergic to taltz. before starting you should be checked for tuberculosis. taltz may increase your risk of infections and lower your ability to fight them. tell your doctor if you are being treated for an infection or have symptoms. or if you have received a vaccine or plan to. inflammatory bowel disease can happen with taltz. including worsening of symptoms. serious allergic reactions can occur. now's your chance at completely clear skin.
7:43 am
just ask your doctor about taltz. welcome back. we are here. less than 48 hours to go and the candidates are crisscrossing key battleground states today in that last-minute push for voters. the clinton campaign is holding 33 events in 11 states. donald trump himself holding six rallies in five important swing states. let's bring in our panel. ed rollins is a former campaign manager for the reagan/bush ticket in 1984. julie ruginsky, a fox news contributor and mary kissell with us, on the editorial board of the wall street journal. ed, two days out. how you feeling? >> well, i feel can have doesn't. i think he's really turned this thing back around the last couple of weeks. i think at the end of the day for a campaign that didn't do
7:44 am
anything correct in the sense of organization against a campaign, dead even race. >> does he have that ground game to come and bus people to the polls? >> he certainly can't match her ground game and he certainly can't in the get out the vote, but i think the momentum that's turned to him in the last two weeks may overcome that. >> there sure is. look at real clear politics, the tossups, basically 297/241. >> florida's critical. >> florida is critical to him. not necessarily critical to her. multiple pathways without winning florida. it is critical to him. i will say it's not just about the ground game, with i is very important. you also know what i'm talking about when we talk about modeling. she knows who that voter is and that's something trump has not done to his own detriment.
7:45 am
what do you mean with modeling? >> they essentially model somebody to make sure that maria bartiromo gets to the polls, but if your twin sister with the same exact characteristics and demographics, they send 1200, 1400 criteria, they don't have to focus on your twin sister, focus on you, very specific mathematic way of identifying your voters much more specific than polling. the clinton campaign has done very effectively. obama did that in 2008, 2012. >> but he's been a one-man show for a long time. >> he has been. trump is trying to break the mold. he's trying to get voters out to the polls through social media, flying around the country and holding events in airport hangers. >> ohio, pennsylvania, florida. doing well in ohio, pennsylvania clinton seems to have the lead and florida doing well. he has to turn states that mitt romney lost. looking to places in the midwest, michigan, that went to

bernie sanders that has the disaffected high school educated white vote out there. the key for him, he has to stay on message. he has to talk about obamacare. he has to talk about jobs. he has to talk about change. he has to keep his thumb off the twitter button essentially. take it away from him. put him on a teleprompter. >> been doing that. one is seeing the front page of "the new york times" with him holding a baby. that's the traditional old position. drain the swamp. that's silly. i think it symbolizes what people think. it's worked well. >> this campaign and the entire election season was a lot about jobs and national security. it has become just as much about ending corruption, isn't that right? >> it has to some extent, look, but it's also about temperament and it's interesting if you look at polls that have come out, that's where she has the advantage over him. it's not enough to say i want to drain the swamp, you have to say
7:47 am
who's going to be draining the swamp for the next four years. >> have a plan. >> on temperament alone, people understand. >> she's been very shrill. >> i wouldn't use that word. >> i would. she's very articulate person. i've watched a lot of these sessions and she's very, very shrill. i think to a certain extent that basically backfires. >> it's true. there is an fbi investigation happening and what does that mean? been asking this question throughout the show this morning. what does that mean for the day after, mary? when you know -- let's say hillary clinton wins. what happens after that knowing that we've got this investigation hanging over her? >> it means you're going to have ongoing investigations essentially. look, there's a reason why donald trump is seen as more honest and trust worthy. there are multiple fbi investigations. he has a lot of material to talk about here. it's not just about the fbi.
7:48 am
you have reporters like john harwood, donna brazile, feeding questions to the clinton campaign. you get the sense that the whole process was rigged. and i don't say that lightly because, look, our voting system works. our electoral process itself is not rigged. when you look at how the clintons have been packaged and sold to the american people -- >> yeah. >> -- they're something a terrible product here. donald trump has won this campaign in a different way, he would be ahead by 20 points. >> you mentioned the e-mails. the wikileak e-mails, the one from john harwood from cnbc says, what should i ask jeb bush. >> the media has not covered itself in floory in this campaign. that's why it's so important for trump to continue to press the message that he has a positive mission to motivate republicans come out. he's not even getting 93% of the republicans. he needs them to come home and repressing the clinton vote by continuing to emphasize just how incredibly corrupt this family
7:49 am
actually is. >> in the final few days of an election, julie, isn't it the right path to make sure you communicate to voters something to vote for, right? instead of -- i mean, she's chosen an approach to just trash talk. >> well, both. you have a lot of people who may not love her but dealt with him. the reason they're doing that is not because they're enamored with hillary clinton, they're doing that in reaction to donald trump and what he said about them in the last 15 months. when you talk about john harwood, john podesta, the e-mails. >> but that's not why these voters are lining up early to vote for hours. >> fare point. let's take a short break. who has the easier path to the presidency. it could come down states. we'll take a look at that. coming back on "sunday morning futures." see me.

see me. don't stare at me. see me. see me. see me to know that psoriasis is just something that i have. i'm not contagious. see me to know that... ...i won't stop until i find what works. discover cosentyx, a different kind of medicine for moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. proven to help the majority of people find clear or almost clear skin. 8 out of 10 people saw 75% skin clearance at 3 months. while the majority saw 90% clearance. do not use if you are allergic to cosentyx. before starting, you should be tested for tuberculosis. an increased risk of infections and lowered ability to fight them may occur... ...tell your doctor if you have an infection or symptoms... ...such as fever, sweats, chills, muscle aches or cough. or if you have received a vaccine or plan to. if you have inflammatory bowel disease, tell your doctor if symptoms develop or worsen. serious allergic reactions may occur. see me. see me. see me. on my way. find clear skin... and a clearer path forward. for a different kind of medicine, ask your dermatologist about cosentyx.

welcome back. the path to 270 electoral votes is tight. the path to 1600 pennsylvania avenue is easier for hillary clinton if secretary clinton wins states in blue considered solid democrat states. she clinches the white house with 283 electoral votes. mr. trump needs to win those red states with a number of states that are considered a tossup. back with our panel now. you wanted to make a point early in terms of the down ballot races as well and the impact we're seeing. make a connection in terms of down ballot races. >> this is an unusual election because voters seem to be separating in some races the senate candidates from donald trump. they don't see donald trump as a
7:54 am
typical republican. you see a guy like rob portman in ohio, with an easy double digit what looks like sailing to victory win there. you see marco rubio also trying to separate himself from donald trump, seems to be in the lead there, though it is a close race. so you wonder if, for instance, the rubio get out the vote mechanism is going to help donald trump in florida. but, you know, it is a close race. and it is not just a close race up ballot, it is a close race also for control of the senate. >> critical thing as the leak ten days ago people would have predicted that we would lose the senate. i don't think anybody is predicting that anymore. i think it will be close. i think we'll win that and agree with that point. the interesting thing is that last campaign, won 49 states was the one that was run for ronald reagan. not one that people will look back on and feel good no matter what side you're on.
7:55 am
some be is going to win and the other side will be bitter about it. >> you raise an excellent point. what is so depressing, i think it is wednesday morning we're going to wake up and regardless of who the winner is, the country will be just as divided. i hope if donald trump loses, he concedes. i don't have any confidence he'll do that. and we'll have the next month or two or three if not longer of threatened investigations from one side or the other and twill be -- >> you make a good point. you look at the next day or january 21st, after the inauguration, neither one of these people have a mandate. half the country didn't want them in. >> we'll see what the numbers are like, ed rollins type numbers, they have a mandate. chances are it will be a very divided election. when george bush won in a squeaker in 2000, i think a lot of democrats said, okay, i'm not happy about the result. he's the president, let's get behind him. i hope whoever the president is, the other side will believe that. i don't think they will. >> i think this narrative of hillary clinton as the unifier, let's come together, it is just
7:56 am
garbage. trump is a dealmaker, might be ready to actually deal with democrats and willing to do deals that hillary clinton might not do. and also remember that hillary clinton is very constrained now by the left of her party. she is running for a third term of obama. this is not hillary clinton over the 1990s. you can imagine a scenario -- by the way, there are also vindictive. if she wins the presidency, she'll go after the people who came after her for the fbi investigation. she's not going to have the political space to do deals with republicans. >> i would -- >> 269, 269, very legitimate. >> we'll be right back. one thing to watch between now and the closing of the polls tuesday night.

welcome back. one big thing to watch, ed rollens. >> trump loses florida, it is over. >> florida is what you're watching. julie? >> the polls in north carolina, florida, and nevada. >> trump, can he stay on
8:00 am
message? take the film off of twit, stick to the policy message, talk about ideas. >> that will do it. have a great sunday. see you tomorrow. have a good day. the final countdown, less than two days before america picks a new president. after a wild campaign in which donald trump's attacks on the media and hillary clinton's avoidance of the media took center stage, news outlets turned this final stretch of 2016 into a blizzard of polls, punditry and pontification. and lots of maps. >> as of tonight, polling indicates that there could be enough republican voters in the battleground states to give donald trump the presidency. >> i don't know. still looks to me like hillary clinton wins. if he wins north carolina, i think the whole map is blown up. >> his path is still narrow. but weirdly it is not as narrow as it was six minutes
