tv Early Today NBC November 7, 2022 3:30am-4:00am PST
if you want to stop the destruction of our country and save the american dream, then this tuesday, you must vote republican in a giant red wave >> kind of slash and burn politics that we're seeing right now. that doesn't have to be who we are. we can be better and it has nothing to do by the way with political correctness or being too woke. >> the heavy hitter is trying to close the deal as americans prepare to cast their ballots
tomorrow >> we've also got the latest nbc news polls that throw shows us what americans are thinking as they head to the polls. >> should schools surround themselves with put proof equipment as well as arming administrators and teachers? criticism grows on a number of fronts and elon musk reacts to it all. a group of high school students in texas may be forced to retake the s.a.t.s after tests fly out the window of a ups truck. and meet the energetic 8-year-old who wanted an xbox so badly, he put a resume together and got a job to earn it you're going to love this kid. "early today" starts right now good morning i'm erin o'hearn. >> glad you're with us i'm frances rivera we're down to the final 24-hour sprint to the midterm elections, and voters seem very motivated nationally, over 41 million americans have voted early either in person or using mail-in ballots. that breaks the 2018 record of
39 million but based on a new nbc survey, the overall voter turnout this year may fall below the 2018 midterm records. brie jackson joins us now from d.c. and brie, good morning party leaders on both sides are doing everything they can to boost enthusiasm in this final stretch. >> good morning, frances that's right three presidents, past and present all converged on pennsylvania president biden reunited with former president barack obama. they joined forces to campaign for john fetterman and josh shapiro, who are running for senate and governor, while mr. trump give his support to their republican challengers, mehmet oz and doug mastriano. obama and biden continue to warn about threats to democracy >> i understand that democracy might not seem like a top priority right now, especially when you're worried about paying the bills. but when true democracy goes away, we've seen throughout
history, we've seen around the world. when true democracy goes away, people get hurt. it has real consequences >> if you all show up and vote, democracy is sustained this is not a joke this is not hyperbole. for the second time, this is not a joke it matters it's in your hands >> trump held a rally in miami overnight for senator marco rubio. his closing argument before election day is that the country is currently in a decline. >> if you support the decline and fall of america, then you must good out and vote for the radical left democrats and if you want to stop the destruction of our country and save the american dream, you don't hear too much about the american dream over the last two years, then this tuesday, you must go out and vote republican. >> president biden will spend the last day before the electioe
and president trump will hold a rally for j.d. vance and that ohio race could determine which party gains control of the u.s. senate frances? >> here we go. brie, thank you. >> well, if the latest nbc polls are any indication, tomorrow's election could be one for the history books. richard lui is here with a closer look. and richard, there is a lot at stake this week to say the least. what are some of the biggest issues driving voters to the ballot box. >> good morning to you as well down to the 20-hour sprint that you were talking about at the moment what are the big issues that get voters to polls right now? that's the key all of the early voting is done right now. the economy we've talked about so many times. that's the big one on the economy right now you see big, big, big. 81% of voters are very or somewhat dissatisfied. just 19% are very or somewhat satisfied there. that helps get republicans
this issue right here about the economy, two polling places. independence as well the swing voters it's the opposite, though, for democrats when it comes to this particular situation that's especially true when we look at specific messages that voters are trying to send with their vote top of the list, fix the economy. you can see it right here. and reduce the cost of living. but look at these three messages here more bipartisanship, be more effective, productive. honesty and integrity, those issues, well, that means they want congress to get working now women's rights also in the top five here you see when it comes to what message they want to send. now to voters' ideal candidates. 50% said the candidates position on abortion, threats to democracy, voting and the cost of living, you can hear the thematic here, were top of mind. that's 50% this is mostly a democratic message on the top 44% here are watching the position on crime, border issues
and cost of living you hear it again. this largely a republican message. then finally for you, you're mentioning enthusiasm. got to get these folks who have not voted early to the polls right now. in october, our nbc news poll showed a 9 percentage advantage for republicans. however, in november, it is dead even here between the two. the two parties now have zero difference in enthusiasm so erin and frances, all of these issues trying to get those final voters to the polls. >> yeah. we'll see what happens tomorrow. thank you so much, richard well, frances? >> now to iran, who for the first time admitted they supplied russia with drones. the country's foreign minister told reporters that they gave russia a limited number of drones and said they were delivered before the invasion of ukraine. the statement prompted robert mali, the u.s. special enjoy for iran to accuse him of lying. he claims that dozens of iranian
drones were transferred to russia as recently as this summer russia has been using drones loaded with explosives to attack civilian targets and energy infrastructure in ukraine. elon musk announcing in a series of tweets sunday that any twitter handles engaging in impersonation without clearly specifying parody will be permanently suspended. he added that there no longer will be a warning before suspension, and it will be a condition when signing up for twitter blue this came as the same day comedian kathy griffin's account was suspended after she changed her user name to elon musk she tweeted under his name, mocking musk and urging americans to vote for democrats in the midterm election tuesday in order to preserve abortion right. >> hours later, griffin appeared to be using her mother, maggie griffin's account, firing off a series of tweets at musk including one that says i'm back from the grave to say #free kathy. and after laying off nearly half
the company in the wake of his $44 billion acquisition, bloomberg is reporting that musk is reaching out to dozen of the employees and asking them to return the reporting is based on two unnamed sources familiar with twitter's situation. the sources said some of the workers were laid off by mistake and others were let go before management realized their work experience would be needed to build new features musk has planned. well, a school district in missouri is taking a new step to protect children from school shooters this is where we are, bulletproof furniture. alex fees of kdfk reports. >> and this one is courthouse in wisconsin. >> reporter: while interviewing executive wood products founder paul alexander at his sullivan office, i noticed something in the background. >> we practice what we preach. this is a police shotgun on the left that happens to be a henry 17 caliber rifle on the right.

districts does business with >> i'm not going to tell you the names of any of the schools that buy our products because i don't want anyone to know where they are. i want them to be as innocuous as possible. i want the active shooter to think that he can shoot through them, because that's what saves lives. >> right because that gives the schools an advantage. >> exactly it provides a workstation for an individual it could be a sro or a marshall in a courthouse. >> reporter: alexander showed us a full-sized bulletproof version of a lectern. >> in a test, we shot it 48 times with an ak-47 and it never penetrated. >> our thanks to alex for that report after a weekend of record heat we are looking at a parade of storms in the west. let's turn to michelle >> great to see you. we're looking at mountain snow could see up to 4 feet in some spots. also heavy rain that could lead to flash flooding. winds gusting up to 65, 70 miles
