him to over 140 congressman and over 12 senators. i hope -- i am encourage lindsey graham and tim scott to get on board. jillian: to that point you do have a lot of people in that camp with that support but others who are not, namely tom cotton came out saying he's not going to object to the result saying he's arguing congress has no constitutional authority to overturn the result of the state certified vote so what do you say to someone like him and others in his camp? >> i disagree with him. it is what it is. we have, this is our only avenue. this is the only thing we can do. on the sixth it comes down to us objecting between win by showing the public what went on and we cannot have fried in an election, will turn out to be

2:30 am
senators the represent us. >> reporter: senators perdue and leffler are our last line of defense against the democrats. >> i see what is happening in our country happening in front of my eyes, never -- over my eyes. >> that was the overwhelming majority of answers i got. it was know. we are not sitting this out, we are even more passionate, doubling down, voting on tuesday. >> if you look at the last four years, how many times, there was a ticker of wins versus losses when he campaigned for candidates. any professional sports team would want. in this case that is what he and leffler and perdue are counting on. the enthusiasm he has had as president will translate into the senate races. i get the sense you were there that it is a head and hard thing, for so many voters, what happens in november was it a

2:32 am
challenge? >> very concerned. they all bring it up. what they bring up after they talk about their concern a talk about the two georgia senate races being, quote, the last line of defense, the two georgia senators being the difference between a path towards socialism or a wall against these progressive agenda items that will have no block, no nothing in their way. >> i will second the comment of the gentleman on my rights. almost every single republican voters says what happened in november stinks, i feel it, it feels off, doesn't feel like it was above board but i'm still going to do what i need to do today. >> thanks. our next guest at donald trump's rally, joining us his marine corps bomb technician and fox news contributor joey jones, thanks for being here. do you sense any frustration from voters in georgia the question is are they surprised at how close november was and how these races appear to be at this point?
2:33 am
>> welcome to dalton, georgia, the birthplace of joey jones is an amazing place, everyone was excited to have donald trump here leslie. i live just south of atlanta two hours from here and everywhere i go everyone i talk to, trump signs posted today more than on election day, people are frustrated, they believe donald trump, his supporters believe he was defrauded out of the election in georgia but i don't think the sentiment of stay home and don't vote has made it far. i went to the rally, the best picture of the nights in saying in his words not mine, don't be a moron, stay home and not vote, go out and vote and people reacted to that. anyone at the rally listening last night that had that notion of staying home, the president and all the surrogates did a good job pushing back against
2:34 am
that to vote today. todd: you do a great job breaking down the demographics of your home state. let's move aside from the staying at home because they are angry, let's talk about voter mobilization for the first tuesday in january which is normally election day anywhere specifically in georgia. did the president do enough in the last couple weeks, specifically last night to get out the vote in those rural communities you are so familiar with versus what the democrats did in the city like atlanta and the surrounding communities of atlanta? >> reporter: the president has done more than his share. he's not running for reelection. these are two senators in georgia, this felt like two sides atlanta battling, not two political parties in the state of georgia. i'm very disappointed in the gop
2:35 am
and the turnout we had but no reason we should be losing by 11,000 votes, we should have won by 100,000 votes. this is a red state. the difference is stacy abrams and organization like hers going to metropolitan areas and get absentee ballots and people signed up to vote easily in these densely populated areas, can't do that in farm country. it takes more work, the gop has its work cut out for it moving forward. todd: thank you for joining us, appreciate it. still ahead, joe conscious of a on nancy politically's latest act of hypocrisy next. ♪ liberty mutual customizes your home insurance, here's one that'll really take you back. wow! what'd you get, ryan? it's customized home insurance from liberty mutual! what does it do bud? it customizes our home insurance so we only pay for what we need! and what did you get, mike? i got a bike. only pay for what you need.

year end investors, looking at the prospect of higher regulations to slow the recovery, this is absolutely enormous from the perspective of the economy and the perspective of investors trying to figure out what this environment will look at. jillian: you see down futures, given that today is the big election day. laura: investors, every number, every movement this way or that way, investors on pins and needles. i don't expect big movements one way or another, if it looks like the election is moving in the direction of democrats, if it looks like democrats could take the senate the market is going to react strongly because they
2:50 am
have been betting on republicans holding it and a lot of shifting is investors recalibrate expectations. todd: you wonder if donald trump's rally made the box green. of democrats win in georgia you are going to have the largest tax increase you have ever had. the biden proposed tax hikes, corporate tax 21 percent-20%, individual tax rate, 38.6, capital gains, won't repeat for time. looking at that, i'm not in those categories, that won't it me directly. are they wrong? >> it is not what hits you directly but what hits you wrong so if you are raising taxes, that affect everybody. investing in new jobs, the capital for businesses to expand.
2:51 am
somebody's taxes, everybody is going to fuel it. when you look at the biden spending agenda, all the money on green infrastructure, that is going to cost a lot more than he's talking about raising taxes on the rich. somebody has to pay for that and you can bet it will be the middle class at the end of the day. jillian: everyone will feel it. thank you for joining us. have a good day. todd: the most extreme liberal candidates, donald trump slamming democratic senate candidates as polls open in the peach state this morning. >> congressman lance goodin reacts next.

2:56 am
i suspect the headlines will be something of the sort that georgia is too close to finish. it's too close. they can't call it. i really don't know. i'm so tired of predicting and being wrong. so i hate to predict. todd: sure. >> but i can predict that republicans are going to turn out big today. i think we will retain these seats and the fact that democrats are just barely leading in the polling that we are seeing encourages me. you know, usually before election day or on election day name your democratic candidate they are up by 10 point. the fact that the polls only have them up by maybe one or two points is encouraging to me. todd: listening to your optimism for the republican party leads me to this thought. texas is obviously your home state. socialism in elections died a pretty quick death there. you think that that fear of socialism is getting through to the georgia voter? >> i do. and i think georgians are upset about what happened in november. i think this talk about georgians being frustrated and
2:57 am
not turning out and as an act of protest is crazy. georgians are not dumb. they are actually turning out in record numbers. they know what's at stake. republicans in georgia know that the future of our nation is on the line and it runs through georgia tonight. i think we will be pleased with the results. the president has done a great job turning out the vote there. his rally last night was encouraging. people are fired up in georgia. it's very similar to texas. the electorate in georgia mirrors it in many ways. so i think the people of georgia are really turning out en masse and i think republicans are keeping up with the stacey abrams voters that she is trucking to the polls. jillian: so many people have already vote wanted i think it's 3 million at this point. what does that say to you those early voter numbers. >> you know, i think that's encouraging. i think that we'll see a huge turnout today. though on election day republicans have really started to vote on election day. they are very critical and
2:58 am
