tv Today in the Bay NBC November 4, 2018 7:00am-8:01am PST
good sunday morning. it is 7:00 on this november 4th. here is a live look outside from our photographer mikey in the oakland hills, looking toward san francisco, with those low clouds, but boy, it still looks beautiful. you can see the sales force tower peeking up there. thanks for joining us. i'm kira klapper. vianey arana has a look at your microclimate forecast, and it's brighter out there, because it would normally be 8:00 right now. >> very true. >> hopefully everyone enjoyed one more hour of sleep. >> we were talking about how we kept anxiously waking up in the middle of the night to make sure the clock was right. >> i woke up at 2:00 a.m., wait, i have another hour. this is awesome. >> you get to enjoy plenty of sunshine today.
we expect a mostly clear afternoon. temperatures running cooler. we are dealing with dry conditions so some spots still of course need to keep in mind there is high elevated fire danger especially for the hilltops and any elevations above 1,000 feet. the red flag warning did expire this morning. areas like concord will be running about ten degrees cooler today, so the predicted highs will only be in the upper 70s, instead of upper 80s, which is what we saw yesterday. so we're starting to creep back down into more seasonable temperatures. despite that, we're running a little bit warm. couple changes toward the work week that i want to chat with you about, but it's dry and windy in the hillsides and i'll break down your election day forecast, of course, for tuesday, coming up in about 15 minutes. >> that's an important one. we'll see you then, vianey, thanks. for the first time in nearly two decades, a police shooting in a typically safe and quiet bay area community. people in danville are still rattled after police say they
were forced to open fire, shooting and killing one man. police tell us the shooting followed a chase that ended at diablo road and front street, a busy intersection in downtown danville. investigators say the suspect attempted to run over an officer, who then was forced to fire his weapon at the car to stop that driver. the driver was rushed to the hospital, where he died. witnesses say the scene was chaotic. >> we saw the police fly down this road, and then moments later, we heard like five gunshots, and then we ducked down, because we didn't know what was going on. >> according to police, the man who was shot had been reported just a few minutes prior in a neighborhood, as a suspicious person who was ringing the doorbells at homes. police have not yet released his identity. we continue to follow a developing story, a supervised visit turned into an abduction. an amber alert remains active for 1-year-old alexander
panalozza and his sister, 11-year-old priscilla panalozza. their mother, 33-year-old diana moreira, the three met at emma prush park friday night along with a child protective services worker who was supervising the visit. the worker reportedly took the girl to the bathroom and returned to find the mother and baby boy gone. the girl somehow vanished. police believe she met up with mom. dieia moreira drives a gray 2012 mini cooper. the trio may be headed to colorado spring. to an alarming sight for people in the north bay, they looked up and saw this, a massive black plume of smoke and clouds in the sky, after an industrial building went up in flames. this was in santa rosa. flames spread to nearby fields and a few spot fires broke out. fortunately, because of the hot and windy weather that vianey
was telling us about this weekend, firefighters were on high alert. crews responded quickly to knock down the flames. fire departments increased their staffing because of the red flag warning that was in effect yesterday through this morning. now to decision 2018 coverage. early voting centers are open this weekend. san mateo county for one opened nearly 40 of them this weekend alone. every city in san mateo county has at least one voting center open from now until election day tuesday. with two days to go the final. ush is on. candidates are in a nonstop sprint to deliver voters to the polls tuesday. "today in the bay's" marianne favro tells us how the president is spending his weekend on the campaign trail. >> reporter: president trump campaigned hard for republican candidates crisscrossing the country, from montana to florida, the president played up the economy. >> you can only say so many
times that we just created 250,000 jobs last month, right? >> reporter: he also addressed a problem he says needs to be fixed. >> unvetted, illegal ail ylieni trying to flood into our country. >> reporter: whale the president was in montana, vice president mike pence was in wisconsin and former president barack obama hit the trail in georgia and florida friday, leveling harsh criticism against the trump administration. >> they promised to take on corruption. instead, they have wracked up enough indictments to field a football team. >> reporter: democrats need to win 23 seats to control the house of representatives and just two seats to control the senate. after 2016, neither party is taking anything for granted. president trump appears to be relying on his 2016 campaign strategy. according to the associated press, of the 11 rallies in eight states he visited, mr. trump picked places that are whiter, less educated and less
wealthy than the rest of the country. former vice president joe biden says it won't work this election, because things are different now. >> we have to reset the moral compass of this nation, and we do that on tuesday. >> reporter: marianne favro, "nbc bay area news." people pushing for proposition c joined forces yesterday at san francisco's dolores park. prop c aims to address the homeless problem in the city by taxing large san francisco companies like sales force, for one. chairman co-ceo mark ben hoff is a well-known supporter of prop c and says the homeless problem is an embarrassing epidemic and san francisco has no choice but to vote yes on c. >> there is no plan b. this is our only choice. c is for compassion. it's for care. it's for charity. it's going to take care of the homeless that we have, 75 homeless in san francisco, 1200 homeless families each with two children. they need proposition c, that's
why i know that it's going to pass. >> nancy pelosi and dianne feinstein also support the measure. pelosi was at that rally yesterday. there are arguments, however, against c, opponents worry the money wouldn't be properly spent on homeless services, and could also lead to jobs being cut. while you were out voting, if you have any problems at the polls, we want to hear about them. nbc bay area is teaming up with pro publica to track any problems with the election. if you spot a problem, give us a call, 1-833-622-5688. that spells out nbc kntv or head to our website nbcbayarea.com/decision2018. our election night coverage begins at 7:00 p.m. on tuesday. we'll bring you results and analysis all night long. in other news now, a follow-up to a story we first brought you last weekend as breaking news. police have made an arrest in a shooting in san mateo, and the
suspect is only 16 years old. the crime took place outside the city's downtown caltrain stop. man was hit but we're told he's going to be okay. officers recovered a gun. the shooting did disrupt caltrain service for the night. and this morning, traffic is once again flowing on one of oakland's busiest freeways. drivers were trapped for hours on northbound 880 yesterday morning. it was shut down for about eight hours after a woman crashed her car into support beams on the 23rd avenue and 29th avenue overpasses. the crash happened just before 4:00 yesterday morning. the chp says the driver suffered only minor injuries and was taken to the hospital. there, she was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. caltrans says the newly constructed overpass bridges were not damaged. >> those are temporary beams, not part of the main structure. caltrans is going to remove the
beams anyhow. this project is a week away from being opened. >> caltrans planned to shut down the freeway later this month to remove the support beams that went crashing down in the accident. since then, massive pieces of steel were taken away yesterday, caltrans is figuring out whether they need to close the freeway at all or maybe just for a shorter period of time. it is 7:09. we have much more ahead on "today in the bay." coming up, violence in the classroom. teacher is arrested after fighting one of his students. what witnesses say the student said to provoke the teacher. plus colin kaepernick is recognized by his central valley high school. what the school did to honor the former 49ers qb.
temperatures and luckily that red flag warning has expired. fire danger won't be as high today, but temperatures warm and windy still. now to shock and anger over a fight that broke out between a teacher and one of his students in southern california. it happened at an alternative high school near l.a. and was all caught on video, as things are these days. witnesses say a music teacher warned a freshman to get out of his classroom. other students say the student responded with racist comments. that's when the teacher started punching. >> i had seen the kid bleeding from his face. >> just the fact that he's hitting a child is not right. >> the boy was taken to the hospital with minor injuries. the teacher was arrested and held on $50,000 bail. as for what provoked this fight? witnesses say it was an argument over the school dress code. we have much more ahead on "today in the bay." the holiday heist is already here. if you have to wait for the
sweet black friday deals, think again. coming up next, the reason behind the early rollout. kira, i did go get my holiday kit. i stepped foot, oh, boy, here we go. >> it's addictive. >> it is. we have plenty of sunshine today and we are enjoying some pretty mild temperatures now, but i'll talk about the change in those inland temperatures and of course how we're looking along the coast coming up just after the break. stay with us. i'm dianne feinstein and i approve this message. "look what she's accomplished...
she authored the ban on assault weapons... pushed the desert protection act through congress, and steered billions of federal dollars to california projects such as subway construction and wildfire restoration."

welcome back. at 7:15, a live look outside at clouds over oakland. you can see the sun trying to peek through. vianey arana has your forecast coming up, including how the weather will look as you head out to the polls on election day. former 49ers quarterback colin kaepernick is going to the hall of fame. not at the pro level, but for what he did during his high school playing days. kaepernick was inducted into the pittman high school hall of fame last night. his tool was in turlock in the
central valley. kaepernick led the school to its first ever playoff win when he was a senior and he was nominated all-star player in basketball, football and baseball all in the same year. kaepernick graduated from pittman in 2006. as we all know, halloween was just a few days ago. it's crazy to say this, but people already are shopping for the holidays. retailers would normally hold off on offering discounts until after black friday, but they're already here. why so early? nbc business correspondent jolijo li ling kent explains. >> reporter: the crowds rushing in on black friday may soon be a ghost of christmas past, that's because the biggest retailers are already hocking some of their best discounts right now. >> when it comes to black friday, there's a lot of deals happening already, and a lot of them will be the best deal you're going to find. >> reporter: kohl's looking to kick off the season with a 20% discount now until tuesday. walmart is slashing pricing on
electronics and toys, and amazon already cutting prices on its popular echo speakers and fire tablets. with toys "r" us gone, other retailers are competing to fill that void, adding new toy sections in stores and more selection online, all in anticipation of a record-breaking holiday season. americans are expected to spend an average of $1,250 each, that is, if they can find what they want. >> if consumers see a sale they're interested in, they shouldn't wait. some of the inventory will run out early and when it comes down to black friday, there may be a few products left in stock. >> reporter: so you can make your list, but may not have time to check it twice. jo ling kent, nbc news, los angeles. just like we need another excuse to head out to the malls earlier. vianey arana is here with a look at our sunday forecast. >> you know, i am a firm believer thanksgiving day is family kday only. >> yes, no shopping. >> today is a great day for
families, to be outside especially, head outside, enjoy the weather, because look at this beautiful shot. this is gorgeous. this is one of my favorite ones. the shot over san golden gate b couple clouds creeping through. nice overshot of what we can expect in the afternoon. current temperatures as you head out the door 40s and 50s. might be chillier in some spots including the peninsula. 47 degrees in palo alto. 49 in mountain view, and even in through the livermore area, we're talking 40s right now, but as we get a decrease in that offshore flow, which is what kicks up those winds, the red flag warning did expire as of 6:00 a.m. this morning, but we're still dealing with fairly dry conditions. we're going to get an increase in onshore flow, and that's what's cooling our temperatures down by as much as ten degrees in some spots. our daytime highs today for the south bay, san jose, 75 degrees. east san jose 78, and this is where it's really going to feel a little bit more noticeable at
least for the inland areas. oakland 71 degrees, and as we head in towards walnut creek, concord and pittsburgh, only topping out into the upper 70s, possibly some low 80s through the antioch area, but believe it or not, even though we're running cooler, we're still above normal for this time of year. it is fall, after all. if you're headed out to the peninsula, san mateo 69 degrees. in through the city, upper 60s. still a little breezy right now, 10, 12-mile-per-hour winds, and up through the north bay santa rosa at 78 degrees. novato 73. let's talk about the next seven days. what can we expect? what are we tracking? we still have this high pressure that's keeping us dry over the bay area, and that's going to extend unfortunately a little bit our fire danger for the next several days. we're running a little bit dry but at least not as windy. be mindful if you're lighting any fires especially with the dry brush which creates that fuel for the possibility of spreading anything. as we head toward the next ten
days, i want to give you a mid month outlook, as far as our odds of seeing some rain. it's still far out but our models are showing possibly into november 13th, 14th and 15th that high pressure will begin to weaken and then we might get approaching showers. again, this is kind of a far outlook, but i wanted to give you some hope to hold onto, as that ridge of high pressure will keep us nice and toasty over the next several days. let's go into your election day coverage. i know a lot of folks will be headed out to the polls as we head in toward tuesday election day. we have no excuse when it comes to the weather because it will be in the upper 60s in san francisco. couple of clouds here and there but no rain, of course. we'll remain fairly dry for the next several days, and in through inland areas, temperatures will be comfortable. we'll stick to those 70s for the next seven days, so we're going to catch a break from those 80s, we're talking only upper 70s for election day, so make sure to head out to the polls and get your voice heard, because it's really important.
if you could head to the mall, you could head to the polls. kira, over to you. >> that's a good comparison. trade the mall for the polls on tuesday. vianey, thanks. still ahead on "today in the bay" -- >> i kind of wanted to go back to the hospital. >> just one day after finishing treatment, a 7-year-old cancer patient is told she can go anywhere she wants. the choice she made is why we're featuring her in our "bay area proud" series next. seven-year-og
welcome back. the next story is about a 7-year-old girl facing a difficult diagnosis, but somehow she still finds the energy and spirit to do good for others. "today in the bay's" garvin thomas has this touching story of how she's helping other cancer patients in this morning's "bay area proud." >> claire noland is the little girl's name and she is about as cute and as sweet as they could. she is someone who has battled a serious illness that took its toll on her body, but her heart,
well that clearly remained untouched. >> oh, yes. >> reporter: for her mother recent checkup at lucille packard hospital, 7-year-old claire noland brought along a favorite doll and latest school writing assignment. >> this is for you. >> reporter: the classic "what i did over the summer." >> story about when i had cancer. >> reporter: it is a story that thankfully -- >> i beat it. >> reporter: -- so far has a happy ending, but there is one part claire left out, the part that had her nurse practitioner anne walcush in awe. >> she loves spreading her joy. she's the best person i know. >> reporter: claire was diagnosed with stage four lymphoma in february, an aggressive disease, her mom lindsay says, requiring an equal response. >> it was a very aggressive treatment, yes, six rounds of k chemo. >> reporter: it was an agonizing, nauseating month-long ordeal for claire, which is why
one day in july, the day after her very last chemo treatment, claire's parents said she could do whatever she wanted, go wherever she wanted. and what did she choose? >> i kind of wanted to go back to the hospital. >> reporter: claire said she knew there were still sick children there who could use some cheering up. so she decorated some inspirational signs and went right back to the place she had felt so sick, to make others feel better. >> because i just like making other people happy. >> she thought there's still kiddos there, still kiddos there, and i know what that feels like, and like she said, i want to bring them joy. >> i'm going to teach you guys how it feels like to have cancer. >> reporter: claire even left behind some video for other patients to watch when they need a little lift. >> i wanted to spread joy to all of the patients there.
>> reporter: a bit of inspiration from a little girl who could teach all of us a thing or two about love. >> i learned that there's so much strength in loving others, that by loving others, it in turn fills you. >> reporter: and claire is not done visiting others in the hospital. though she was declared cancer free back in july, she still has to come back every six weeks for her checkups, and the staff and the other patients are thrilled to have her back. garvin thomas, "nbc bay area news." we have much more ahead on "today in the bay." coming up, as voters in san francisco head to the polls on tuesday, some are worried that their vote won't be counted. we'll show you the safeguards the city's voting system has in place to make it secure from hacking. also, a violent crash and a freeway shut down. how a suspected dui driver may actually have helped speed up a construction project. november 4
take a live look outside -- dublin good sunday morning to you. it is just about 7:29 on this sunday, november 4th. taking a live look outside, hazy there in dublin. nice to see the sun shining though. thanks for joining us. i'm kira klapper. vianey arana has a look at your microclimate forecast and we hope you enjoyed another hour of sleep this morning. >> i certainly did. i know a lot of folks are going to be hanging out outside today, because of course, it's sunday fun day, which means hey, time to head outside and enjoy that. sutro tower shot over san francisco looking beautiful. our temperatures right now as you head out the door in the 40s and the 50s. check out san jose right now, 52 degrees. 47 degrees in palo alto. 53 in san francisco and we've been waking up to the chillier 40s, santa rosa at 43, napa 43. an onshore flow decreased winds and also kind of cooled us down
a little bit. the wind speeds aren't as gusty, but it's still dry out there so there's some concern for high fire danger as the ridge of high pressure continues to dominate. at about 12:00, our temperatures will be running in the 70s and in through concord, expect to see cooler but still warm temperatures, topping out into those upper 70s. we might catch a couple of low 80s into the afternoon, but how long is this ridge of high pressure going to kind of hold on tight over california and are we tracking any rain in the forecast? i'll have a look ahead at that coming up in a bit and i'm going to break down hour by hour your election day forecast coming up in about 15 minutes. >> important to get out and vote on tuesday. it will be good to have nice weather with that. vianey, thanks. this morning, people in danville are rattled after a police shooting in their own town, the if first one in nearly 20 years. police say they were forced to open fire, shooting and killing one man. it followed a chase that ended at diablo road in front street a
busy intersection in downtown dan veil. investigators say the suspect attempted to run over an officer, who then fired his weapon at the car to stop that driver. the driver was rushed to the hospital, where he later died. witnesses say the scene was chaotic. >> we saw the police fly down the road and moments later we heard five gunshots and ducked down because we didn't know what was going on. >> according to police, the man who had been shot was reported a few minutes earlier in a nearby neighborhood. people there reported him as a suspicious person. police have not yet released his identity. we continue to follow a developing story, a supervised visit turns into an abduction. an amber alert remains active for 1-year-old alexander panaloza and his 11-year-old sister, priscilla. here is their mother, diana moreira. the 33-year-old met with her kids at san jose's emma prush park friday night, along with a
child protective services worker who was supervising their visit. the worker reportedly took the girl to the bathroom and returned to find the mother and baby boy gone. the girl then vanished. police believe she met up with her mom. diana moreira has california plates 6uwl251. it is a gray 2012 mini cooper. the trio may be headed to colorado springs. an alarming sight for people in the north bay. yesterday they looked up and saw this massive black cloud of spoke billowing into the sky. this, after an industrial building went up in flames in santa rosa. it spread to nearby fields and a few spot fires then broke out. fortunately because of that hot and windy weather that vianey was telling us about this weekend, firefighters were already on high alert. crews were able to respond quickly to knock down the flames. fire departments had increased their staffing because of a red
flag warning that was in effect yesterday through 6:00 this morning. a follow-up now to a story we first brought you last weekend as breaking news. police have made an arrest in a shooting in san mateo. the suspect is just 16 years old. the crime took place outside the city's downtown caltrain stop. man was hit, but he is going to be okay. officers say they recovered the gun in the shooting. the shooting did disrupt caltrain service while police investigated. traffic this morning is once again flowing on one of oakland's busiest freeways. drivers were trapped for hours on northbound 880 yesterday morning. it was shut down for about eight hours after a woman crashed her car into support beams on the 23rd avenue and 29th avenue overpasses. the crash happened just before 4:00 yesterday morning. the chp says the driver suffered only minor injuries and was taken to the hospital. there, she was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence. caltrans says the newly
reconstructed overpass bridges were not damaged in the crash. >> those are temporary beams, not part of the main structure. caltrans is going to remove the beams anyhow. as part of our construction project, this bridge is about a week away from being opened. >> as you just heard there, caltrans interestingly enough did plan to shut down the freeway to remove those support beams that went crashing down in the accident. since the massive pieces of steel were taken away yesterday, caltrans is figuring out whether they need to close the freeway at all or maybe just for a shorter period of time. now to decision 2018. early voting centers are open this weekend. san mateo county for one opened nearly 40 of them this weekend alone. every city in san mateo county has at least one voting center
open from now until election day tuesday. on tuesday centers open at 7:00 a.m. and plan to close at 8:00 a.m. at voters head to the polls some wonder if their vote will count. the last election raised fears of foreign governments trying to interfere. "today in the bay's" joe rosato, jr., shows us the warnings from some security experts. >> reporter: the machinery of an election, already whirring in san francisco city hall as voters begin casting ballots in the november 6th election. election director john arenz heard from people worried their vote won't be count . >> a lot of concerns someone from another country could use the internet to hack into a voting system in san francisco and change the result of the election, but that's actually impossible. >> reporter: the security of u.s. voting systems has become a major concern since the 2016 election, when u.s. intelligence
claims russian infiltrators tried to influence the presidential vote. >> there's a lot more attention on internet security for the websites than there was five years ago. >> reporter: he says san francisco's voting system has safeguards which make it secure from hacking. >> san francisco's voting system and all voting systems in california are not connected to the internet. >> reporter: technology experts say it's unlikely foreign interests could tamper with voting machines or election tallies at the voting stations, since it's difficult and there are many firewalls, but technology security expert mike murray of lookout mobile security says there are many other ways foreign powers could seek to influence a u.s. election. for example, using election text messages sent to voters' phones. >> it's easy to send them a text message and get them to click on something on their phone and put malware on that device. >> reporter: he says rather than trying to tamp we are voting machines, foreign powers could reach far more people creating fake websites or apps to spread
misinformation. >> what we saw in 2016 and 2014 was people learning how to do this. imagine what it's going to be like when they really get good at it. >> reporter: foreign governments attempting to interfere in elections is not a new idea, but over the last 15 years, technology has made it easier for attackers to do it. arentz says increased threats have resulted in better safeguards. still the prospect of someone meddling in the democratic process is jarring to many voters. >> so we'd have to allow everybody who wants to vote to vote. >> reporter: as the wheels of democracy begin turning this round, hopes that security will be up for the challenge. joe rosato, jr., "nbc bay area news." people pushing for propsation c joined forces yesterday at san francisco's dolores park. prop c aims to address the homeless problem in the city by taxing large san francisco companies like sales force, for example.
chairman co-ceo mark benihoff is a well-known supporter of prop c and says the homeless problem is an embarrassing epidemic and san francisco has no choice but to vote yes on c. >> there is no plan b. this is our only choice. c is for compassion. it's for care. it's for charity. it's going to take care of the homeless that we have, 7500 homeless in san francisco, 1200 homeless families each with two children. they need proposition c, that's why i know that it's going to pass. >> nancy pelosi and dianne feinstein also support the measure. there are arguments of course against c, opponents worry the money wouldn't be properly spent on homeless services, and could also lead to jobs being cut. while you were out voting, if you have any problems at the polls, we want to hear about them. nbc bay area is teaming up with pro publica to track any issues this election. if you spot a problem, give us a call, toll free,

good morning. it's sunday fun day, and i hope so far you've had a chance to enjoy a nice cup of coffee. judging by the fact hopefully you got an extra hour of sleep, as we fell back at 2:00 a.m. this morning, a lot of folks got an extra hour of sleep. sutro tower cam shot over san francisco, we don't have a lot of fog. we had a couple of clouds lingering through the mountainside. that managed to clear out nicely. as we head toward the afternoon we will notice a decrease in winds and increase in onshore flow which will keep us cooler into the afternoon.
right now temperatures running in the 50s through the south bay. 53 for mountain view. palo alto at 47, and our afternoon temperatures are going to showcase themselves a little bit cooler, but the wind speeds at about 9 miles per hour in san francisco. so let's talk about some of those temperature trends in through concord, because this is typically one of the hotter spots. today only topping out in the upper 70s, low 80s. by 1:00 talking upper 70s. at 78 degrees, i want to take you through a tour of the bay area. overall, your daytime highs san jose 75 degrees. that onshore flow that's cooling us off quite nicely is going to keep us in the 70s, but we're still running a few degrees warmer than what we're supposed to be around this time of year. walnut creek 78 degrees. down through pleasanton 80 and along the peninsula, a little breezy out there, san mateo 69 degrees. redwood city 72, and in through the city area upper 60s for san francisco. the winds right now are at about 14 miles per hour. if you will be heading up to the north bay, ukiah 76 degrees.
down through novato at 73 and napa at 75. what's keeping us so warm but clear in terms of sunshine? we have this nice ridge of high pressure that's been hanging on tight over california, bringing us those warmer temperatures, but as this dry pattern continues, we're still going to keep the concerns for extended fire danger, especially for the hillside areas and elevations above a thousand feet, because we're going to be fairly dry, at least we're not as windy this morning. we're still going to see that concern. that red flag warning expired as of 6:00 a.m. this morning. doesn't mean you need to not be mindful. we have the high pressure weakening out as we go into the middle of november, there is a better chance of potentially seeing maybe some rain. the models are still kind of conflicted because we are so far out but just want to let you know we're always keeping an eye out on your futurecast. why not talk about the next seven days? a lot of you are getting ready
to head out to the polls on tuesday, and we're going to have great weather for that. as we head in towards monday and tuesday, election day, upper 60s, we're talking 68 degrees. in san francisco we keep the 60s in the forecast. check out your inland areas. we're going from low 80s into upper 70s and we're going to keep those upper 70s over the next several days. we're going to keep that dry pattern, but election day is a big day, and the weather is going to be great for everybody to head out to the polls. i'll also make sure to tweet out your election day forecast. don't go anymore. we have more news coming up after the break. stay with us.
here are the facts.leading attacks against prop c. the city's chief economist says prop c will "reduce homelessness" by creating affordable housing, expanding mental-health services, and providing clean restrooms and safe shelters with independent oversight, open books, and strict accountability measures to make sure every penny goes to solving our homeless crisis. vote yes on c. endorsed by the democratic party,
do your thing. with energy upgrade california. the outcomes of the midterm welcome back. just about 60 hours from now, we'll have a pretty good idea of the outcomes of the midterm elections in california and across the country. record early voting suggests unusual public interest in what many see as a referendum on the first two years of donald trump's presidency, but what else might we glean? as always, nbc bay area political analyst larry gerston joins us with his expectations of this dramatic event, and usually midterms are snoozers. >> yep. >> the outcome last midterm election was dismal. what's happening here? >> let's take a moment. you're right. usually they are snoozers. not this time. let's take a moment to set the stage. we're looking at the most polarized electorate, we know that, in memory, an electorate where few people are undecided or uncommitted, and many are just downright angry.
as a result, we see uncharacteristic passion dominating the current political environment, and it's in that environment that we have 35 u.s. senate seats, all 435 house seats, three dozen governorships and thousands of state legislative seats up for grabs. it's a lot to take in, given a nation on edge. >> and last friday, the labor department delivered the latest economic news, which was incredible, 250,000 new jobs, record low unemployment at 3.7%. wouldn't such great news normally be the gold standard for huge gains for the president and the republican party? >> yes, normally. normally, right. >> nothing's normal anymore. >> these aren't normal times. they're just not. this is one of those strange moments when the economy is not likely to dictate the vote. other factors have insinuated themselves into the election. president trump is hammering on what he describes as the threat of thousands of migrants
tarnishing american culture. he's promoted an us versus them campaign, which resonates with his base. meanwhile, the democrats have focused on health care, laser focused on health care. the highest priority for most americans. they claim republicaned weakened obamacare while doing nothing to improve it. democrats have also characterized the president as a qu divisive leader at a time when the nation needs to bind its wounds. >> we always hear about the 11th hour events that can really change the trajectory of the outcomes. do you see any of that this time around? >> not one, several. >> several. >> take a look at a couple here. republicans, for example, kira, have seized on the kavanaugh hearings and the ""caravan" of migrants as the motivator for voter surges. democrats see the pittsburgh shooting as evidence of a
hate-filled environment emboldened by the president. much comes out of how the undecided voters view the last momentous events. >> given all the uncertainties, are there any hints of what we might see once the dust clears and we wake up on wednesday? >> yes, you know, we have some clues. we usually do have some clues this time. it seems the senate is likely to stay republican because really 25 of the 35 seats are in democratic areas, with ten of those seats in states that trump won big, big in 2016, so absent a huge blue wave, yeah, republicans will wind up with 51, maybe 52 senate seats, enough to keep the majority. that's for sure. in the house, democrats need 23 seats to regain that majority. typically the midterm election year like this one, the out party, that's the party not holding the presidency, will
ga gain an average of 30 seats. we could see the democrats gaining between 40 and 50 seats because of independents, and women shifting away from the trump coalition largely due to the president's continuous barrage of insults, and probably, by the way, three to five of those new democratic seats will come in southern california, where, an evolving demmeography, you can't fight demo graphy is like lie to change red districts to purple and many cases red to purpose toll blue. there are some changes here but the biggest, that gender gap with women, a 30-point difference this time around, largest in history. >> now that the end is near, hallelujah. has anything surprised you this campaign season? >> i'm scratching my head. i'm scratching my head, because the president's choice of issues here is just amazing. the economy, the economy is humming. typically whatever else americans vote their wallets. if we're working, we're happy. >> right. >> of course, it's not a perfect
economy. many are unemployed still. some are underemployed, but you know, gosh, all things considered, the economy is in pretty good shape, at least for now. yet instead, instead of seizing on this issue, the president has invoked this politics of fear, fear the democrats are bringing social iz policies, fear of migrants overrunning the country, fear of the united states losing its way, our history, our culture. it certainly is how he won in 2016. really the question is, whether that approach will work in 2018, and that's why people like me are scratching their heads. >> we're not far from finding out if it works. >> 60 hours from now. >> larry, as always, thanks to you. our election night coverage begins at 7:00 p.m. on tuesday. we'll be bringing you results and analysis all night long. and before we go, we want to show you the thousands of kids went to at&t park for the bay area science festival over the last week. yesterday was the closing day of what's billed as the largest
free educational event in northern california. there were 150 hands-on exhibits. the aim is to get kids of all ages interested and engaged in science, as well as showcase surprising ways science is being used to make the world a better place. and finally this morning, halloween may be over, but kids and adults got into their costumes again, all for a great cause. yesterday participants dressed up like their favorite superheroes for the santa clara county sheriff heroes run. this happened in cupertino. the 5k run raised money for children's health care at the santa clara valley medical center hospital and clinics. it's raised more than $100,000 since it started six years ago. that money has helped purchase new medical equipment and put a new tv in each and every pediatric hospital room. >> i would have gone as wonder woman. >> wonderful. you are wonderful, delivering a great forecast for us, hopefully everyone stays safe with the
this sunday closing arguments. president trump and the republicans focusing on immigration. >> republicans want strong borders, no drugs, no caravans. >> you mean the people of texas want the stop the caravan? >> secure our border, build the wall. >>hile democrats talk about health care. >> you're going to have a governor who will work to expand medicaid. >> health care is on the ballot this year. >> and who we are as a nation. >> maybe most of all the character of our country is on the ballot. >> this morning we're on the ground in four of the most important battleground states, arizona, missouri,
