concerned about while 23% said threats to democracy sichlt the fed has been focused that. and the polls shows democrats have caught up with republicans when it comes up with interest to thee these elections. brie, good morning, party leaders are doing everything in this final stretch. >> reporter: good morning. that's right, fran sechlts three
presidents past and present all converged on pennsylvania. president biden reunited with former president barack obama and they campaigned for john fetterman and josh shapiro obama and biden continued to warn about threats to democracy. >> i understand that democracy might not seem like a top priority right now, especially when you're worrying 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 legal consequences. >> when you all show up and evoke, democracy sustained this is not a joke, not hyperbole. it's not a joke. it matters it's in your hand.
>> reporter: and former president trump held a rally overfight for markoco rubio he said the country is in a decline. >> you must go out and vote for the left radical democrats if you want to destroy it and if you want to stop the destruction 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 evvote republican. >> reporter: former president trump will hold a rally for ohio senate candidate jd advance. that ohio race could determine which party controls the u.s. senate frances? >> brie, thank you. we'll see if that voter enthusiasm will translate to turnout tomorrow at the polls. let's bring in richard lui to
take a closer look if voting is any indication, it really could be a historic day. >> this could be a historic day. erin, frances, it set the record for early voeping. a whopping seven out of ten voters did it early thchlt year with 19 hours to go before the polls cloes close, 41 million americans have mailed in or done early in-person voting the previous record was 39 million. that was set in 2018 so the question might be, does this translate to a haier total turnout come tuesday maybe not. based on nbc news survey, the total votes this midterm could land below 2018's by as much as 20 million. here's another thing to look at earl voting by party
45% are democrat, 35% are republican this number is low for republicans. now many republicans vote day of as opposed to their early voting habits it's, if you will, switched in these recent years last-minute stuffing my republicans, that may be mor voo voting places when you talk about republicans. women outperforming men in early voting, 53%. interesting here, in the past, this was good, a good sign in past elections for democrats it was a plus d. that was because of donald trump's unfavorable at the time. given he's not on this year's ballot, does that shift this time around around is it instead a plus for ours? why? you might also add in higher prices, the inflation, economy, those pocketbook issues might
mean women lean right this time around then there's the early vote by age group. we've been watching it very closely. almost half are what you might expect here, and they're 65 or older, but young voters are what we're also watching. they remain late in early voting look at this it's typical given that in previous midterms, low is what we've seen frances and erin, why isn't this higher given the convenience of early mail-in voting options >> we'll have to see when we delve into this in the next coming days. let's ask you this, richard. what are early voting numbers looking like in key states as far as the senate because that's what so many people are watching. >> balance of power in the senate key state georgia, georgia now at 2.5 million this is an all-time record georgia, georgia, georgia is what you might be saying for the
midterms and the presidential. it still could go higher, says the secretary of state this could mean a bump for democrats with tight senate gubernatorial content ahead. why? when you look at this, they're at plus eight in early voting. all right. we saw how all the presidents were in pennsylvania let's talk about pennsylvania for a moment this number of 1 million early votes, we'll see how that turns out. the key vote, they have cast their ballot in the swing states both parties, presidents biden, obama, and trump, they're all there. young voters, they agree with this they've nearly tripled their voting in the state since early 2018 one last point, a resounding 50 percentage-point advantage for
dem krocrats in early voting that might mean they have an advantage there. >> we'll know soon enough as we gear up. richard lui for us, thank you so much. we're going to headover to michelle grossman for the weather. >> we're going to do that in a second, but let's first talk about football because that's important especially coming from the weekend. there was a wild week night in the nfl. >> left side he's walking into the end zone. >> derrick henry ran the titans into the lead, but in the fourth quarter, it was time for a classic patrick mahomes comeback mahomes brought the chiefs in overtime kansas city wins 20rks-17. tom brady adding another accolade to his storybook career he's the first quarterback to throw for 1,000 passing yards. he lifted the buccaneers past the rams, 16-13.
it wasn't all rosy for josh allen in the meadowlands new york moved within a half gain of the afc lead with a first fought win, 20-17. bengals running back joe mixon found the end zone early and often against the panthers mixon scored first half touchdowns and they win, 42-21. justin fields found his groove on the ground running for 478 yards and a touchdown. that breaks michael vicks 20-year qb record. but the key story of the game was tua tagavailoa his performance lifted the dolphins over the bears in a thriller, 35-32. quarterback skblens was the name of the game on sunday. patrick mahomes led the weekend in passing yards while justin fields had the most yards on the ground by anyone in week nine.
