5:35 am
did you watch? so many polls this morning are coming out with varying results on who won last night's debate. really it depends who you ask. president trump or joe biden. they both made their final arguments to voters at the second and final presidential debate. really it was a more satisfying orderly affair than the first time the two candidates met in september which was very combative last night, relatively few interruptions and really stricter controls on speaking time which both candidates seemed to adhere to. their mics were muted for initial answers to the moderator's questions before they got the chance to go back and forth which they of course did. but again compared to the all out blow out that we saw at the first debate, this was certainly a much more watch able event for a lot of people. natalie brand is joining us
5:36 am
live from nashville, tennessee to talk about very important subjects they debated. good morning. >> reporter: good morning, anne. the first topic was as you probably could expect, the coronavirus. the two candidates offering two very different takes on the current situation and where to go next. president trump saying we are learning to live with it. biden who has made his campaign, this has been a central focus of his, to go after the administration on the response, he said we are learning to die with it. next topic later in the debate was healthcare. a question about the affordable care act. >> what i am going to do is pass obamacare with a public option and become biden care. >> i'd like to terminate obamacare and come up with a new beautiful healthcare. >> reporter: the moderator also asked the two men about race in america. the president during the debate saying he is the least racist
5:37 am
person in the room. biden calling him one of the most racist presidents we have had in modern history. on the topic of climate change, biden said he wants to move away from fossil fuels. >> it has to be replaced by renewable energy over time. >> will you remember that texas? will you remember that, pennsylvania? >> reporter: president trump really made his closing argument last night about the economy while the former vice president argued the character of the country is on the ballot. later today, back on the campaign trail for president trump who heads to central florida for two rallies today, biden scheduled to deliver remarks on the coronavirus in delaware tomorrow, he is headed to the battle ground state of pennsylvania. anne. >> very good. natalie, around here in the bay area, the thought of an undecided voter is like a
5:38 am
unicorn. but i know there are plenty across the country. do we think this debate had the chance to change any minds? >> reporter: we are going to have to try to track down those undecided voters. as you have mentioned a lot of people have made up their minds or voted. in fact more than 47 million americans since early voting has expanded. analysts would say they're not sure if this debate really moved the needle. some undecided voters, one person who i heard give an interview, said he is waiting to see what happens in the final 11 days, waiting for some new development. i think if your mind isn't made up, maybe you are holding out. but overall, i think the take away was this was a much more substantive debate. if you go on twitter, welker is getting rave reviews. a lot of people are saying she won. >> she did do a fabulous job, i
5:39 am
have to say. tens of millions of votes are already cast. we'll keep our eye on that. thank you. on money watch, a court ruling bay area based ride hailing companies, plus what you need to know ahead of holiday shopping at target. i cannot believe holiday shopping is coming up. diane king hall is live with these stories and more. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. we'll start with the latest in terms of wall street watching washington and the latest on economic relief efforts. nancy pelosi says she believes both sides want to reach agreement on coronavirus relief. they've been negotiating a spending bill trying to find common ground on testing and aid. target is gearing up for holiday shopping season with a slew of new safety measures including holding your spot in line. the nation's second biggest retailer says shoppers can reserve a spot ahead of the

5:44 am
prime service has become sluggishly slow. frustrated members reached to amazon to figure out why deliveries have slowed down, they've gotten different answers. >> basically tried to convince me it was an isolated incident, just my house, nothing city wide which i know isn't true. if you look at social media, people are upset. >> amazon says they're actively working to increase capacity. new, mattel's gift is a new barbie for elton john. check this out. the launch has been thoughtfully timed with the 45th anniversary of the legendary 1975 dodger stadium concert. a picture of elton john at the concert is on the front of every box and the barbie is in
