7:03 pm
picture of it right here. >> this is the last word on 2016. >> usa today has released an article about not supporting a candidate. it says trump is unfit for presidency. from the day he declared his candidacy, trump has demonstrated repeatedly that he lacks the temperament, knowledge and steadiness and honesty that america needs from its presidents. we have new reporting from david fahrenthold of possible violations of law from the trump foundation. but first we turn to kurt eichenwald's latest expose, a cover story revealing that donald trump committed the federal crime of violating the united states embargo against
7:04 pm
cuba. the trump campaign has responded to kurt eichenwald's reporting but has not denied any of the facts in the report, indicating that this crime was committed. kurt eichenwald reports that donald trump spent money in cuba, exploring the possibility of building a hotel casino there. kurt eichenwald will join us with the details about that. and of course havana has a history thatort of thing. before they built las vegas, gangsters favorite city was havana. >> partnership with the government, smaller, please. you all know michael coral grown. and we all remember his father. at the time of my retirement or death, i turn over all my interest in the havana operation to his control. but all of you will share.
7:05 pm
the capri will go to the coral grown family. they will bring in the brothers for a piece and to handle the actual casino operations. and we save the piece for some friends in nevada to make sure things go smooth back home. i want all of you to enjoy your cake. so, enjoy. >> donald trump wanted a piece. a piece of that casino cake called havana that the actor just sliced for those who were getting a slice in "godfath "godfather ii".
7:06 pm
when fidel castro marched in, the gangsters fled. but for some, the dream of the old havana, the 1950s havana, the treatment never died. dr donald trump was 28 years old when that scene played out in theaters. and even though the strict embargo was still in full force, donald trump decided he wanted to be the first one in. the first one in. if we were going to have a new chapter of american-owned and operated casinos in havana, and like all the gangsters who owned and operated those casinos in the old havana, donald trump was not afraid of breaking the law. so kurt eichenwald has found the document that shows he spent $68,551.88 to pay for a trip to
7:07 pm
cuba, a trip made by people he sent there to explore the possibility of trump hotels and casino results incorporated, doing business in cuba. at a time when it was a crime for trump hotels and casino resorts incorporated to do business in cuba. he was investigating the possible of a crime, and it was a federal crime just to investigate that. a federal crime for any american or american company to invest in cuba in any way. it was a federal cream ime to s any money at all in cuba at that time. it was a federal crime to pay for a meal in cuba, to pay for a hotel room in cuba. and today, on "the view", in discussing kurt eichenwald's reporting, kellyanne conway admitted that donald trump committed that federal crime. >> are you denying that his company spent any money in cuba?
7:08 pm
>> i think they paid money, as understand the story, he spent money in 1998. as i understand, we're not supposed to talk about 20 years ago when it comes to hillary clinton. and he's talked about the cuba embargo even on this show. but we're talking about did his hotel invest money in 1998 in cuba. no. did she get money from seven foreign governments while she was secretary? yes. >> up until today, it would have been difficult to pick the worse answer kellyanne conway has ever given on television in defense of the indefensible donald trump, but there you have it. there it was. it is not the worst answer, because she tacked on a lie about hillary clinton at the end when she said did she get money
7:09 pm
from seven foreign governments while secretary of state, yes, that is the sort of earth is flat lie, that everyone tells on tv every day. she just threw that in there every day in that high-speed fuse laud that she throws at tv interviews. so no, hillary clinton did not take any money from any foreign government while she was secretary of state. not one penny. not one government. every word of that sentence was a lie. and that sentence came at the end of an answer, where the only sentence that matters was the first one, where kellyanne conway admitted a federal crime. >> so are you denying that his company spent any money in cuba? >> i think they paid money, as i understand from the story, they paid money in 1998. >> and that is a federal crime.
7:10 pm
and yes, you hshould believe tht money was paid, because kurt eichenwald has found the bill for it, and it could note more exquisite. the kellyanne conway said that on tv just about 12 hours after she said this. >> i think she had a good night for somebody who rehearsed, it's almost impossible to believe that she ever failed the bar exam years ago, because she practices and crams information in her head. >> this is why when you take the bar exam, you know you got to pass. in your future, which, by the way, i did. >> i passed four of them. >> lawyer kellyanne conway. passed four bar exams. very proud of that. and then on tv today did something that i think maybe no lawyer has ever done on tv before.
7:11 pm
there are thousands and thousands of incompetent, bad, terrible lawyers in america. and many of them end up on tv from time to time, but none of them have ever admitted that their client committed a federal crime and decided to make that admission on tv. joining us now, the reporter who rattled lawyer kellyanne conway today on the view, to the point that she admitted that, kurt eichenwald, senior writer at "newsweek." and thank you for joining us with this one, which is really the bombshell. and it's, i think one of the things people don't understand about the embargo is embargo is an extremely difficult thing to enforce. it's one thing to order people that you can't go to the country. and it turns out, it was very easy to get to cuba by going to mexico city. the american government would never know, and the cuban government would not stamp the passports of americans flying in that way, because they wanted
7:12 pm
them to come in, and they wanted them to spend money there. and that's why the american government made it a crime to spend any money in cuba, any money, on a hotel, on a meal, on a taxi, on anything. and that's the cream thime that found in this story. >> that's right. it's one of the things that the trump campaign clearly does not understand. because they keep trying to make a big deal like you heard there, oh, well we never did a project. it's like, we don't care. you know, the embargo is about making sure no cash goes into the cuban economy. it's about making sure that this economic pressure stays on. and so, in 1998, when the embargo, yeah, they were talking about loosening it up, which is why the trump folks, sent folks down to havana, but, you know,
7:13 pm
they had a, they had a, they basically spent tens of thousands of dollars in cuba. i don't know how you spend that much in cuba, and that money was all in violation of the law. when they flew home, they had already broken the law. they needed, and they needed permission. they needed sponsorship. and in fact, that invoice that's in, that i referred to in my piece has within it instructs on here's how to make it look like it was a charity that sponsored it. i mean, it was, it was a crime from the get-go. >> let's listen to what donald trump said today in response to your piece. >> i never went to cuba. i've never been in cuba. i've never done business with cuba. there's nothing else to say. i neverid business in cuba. i would tell you very openly if i did. >> kurt, that's their, that's the line of defense. i never did business in cuba. and the point we're making here
7:14 pm
tonight is you don't have to do business in cuba to violate the embargo. all you have to do is spend dollar one, and he spent $68,000 in cuba. >> well, also, there are two elements here to continue the metaphor that you're using. it's like don coraly grown saying i didn't kill anybody. no, you sent somebody to do it. they sent somebody there for the purpose of meeting with banking officials, business people, that's doing business. breaking ground is another form of doing business. so, when donald trump says i didn't go to cuba, i didn't do business in cuba, technically, he's right. but if he ever said i didn't break the cuban embargo, he's lying. >> yeah. >> and it was because. >> and saying i didn't do business in cuba is like saying i didn't run a cocaine business. in ord
7:15 pm
in other words, he wants credit for not doing the gigantic crime in cuba. >> he did do business in cuba. they're trying to make it look like the only way you do business is by building is something. by that standard, i don't think donald trump is building something every day. by that standard, donald trump is not doing business, most of the days of his life. he's having meetings. he's talking with financiers. >> and he's very anti-castro, and very opposed to everything the obama administration has done in opening up cuba. now he's running as the hard guy, anti-cuba candidate. but in 1999, right when he was doing this kind of thing, let's listen to what he said back then, when he was flirting with the idea of running for president back then. let's listen to this. >> putting money and investing money in cuba right now doesn't go to the people of cuba. it goes to --
7:16 pm
[ applause ] he's a murderer. he's a bad guy. never respect. and frankly, the embargo against cuba must stand if for no other reason that if it does stand, he goes down. >> according to what he said in 1999, every penny of that $68,000 that he spent goes straight into the pocket of fiddfe feddal castro. >> he has this desire to fly close to the flame. he's standing up there saying you spend money in cuba, you're giving it to a murderer. and he's got to know, i just spent money in cuba, i just gave
7:17 pm
money to fidel castro. he went down and lied to cuban americans. flat-out lied. and now he's doing it again. >> kurt eichenwald, thank you very much for your invaluable reporting here. this is really amazing stuff. really appreciate it. >> thank you for having me. >> coming up, we have breaking news from david fahrenthold about violation of new york state law by the trump foundation. and later, the trump campaign's many, many problems with many, many women. obviously, ohhh... but with added touches you can't get everywhere else, like claim free rewards... or safe driving bonus checks. even a claim satisfaction guaranteeeeeeeeeee! in means protection plus unique extras only from
7:18 pm
an expert allstate agent. it's good to be in, good hands. you're not taking these. hey, hey, hey! you're not taking those. woah, woah! you're not taking that. come with me. you're not taking that. you're not taking that. you're not taking that. mom, i'm taking the subaru. don't be late. even when we're not there to keep them safe, our subaru outback will be. (vo) love. it's what makes a subaru, a subaru.
7:19 pm
an hour and a half ago we had something booked for the next segment, and david fahrenthold was not planned. and then he posted his latest expose, and now david fahrenthold will be our next guest. we'll be right back.

7:21 pm
daddy! lets play! sorry kids. feeling dead on your feet? i've been on my feet all day. dr. scholl's massaging gel insoles have a unique gel wave design for outrageous comfort that helps you feel more energized. dr. scholl's. feel the energy! we have breaking news now from david fahrenthold of the "washington post." he is reporting that the donald trump foundation has never obtained the certification that charities require before soliciting from the public according to the state attorney general's office. one person interviewed said, quote, you wouldn't expect somebody who's supposed to be sophisticated and brags about his business prowess would run
7:22 pm
his foundation like this. tell us what you found in this new report. >> we're looking at the new york state charity law. his charity is head quarterback t -- quartered in new york. trump has been raising money from other people for a while, for about ten years now. since 2008, other people's money is all the money that's come into his foundation, but he's never registered in new york state or undergone the audit. his foundation could be in some legal trouble with the new york attorney general now. much of other people's money he used in this foundation. in recent years, it's been entirely other people's money. and the issue of soliciting other people's money could be something that you could argue about in some of these contributions. but we all saw him solicit other people's money as a presidential candidate when he said he was having a fundraiser for veterans
7:23 pm
instead of participating in a debate. all of that money that he was raising that that he was sending into the trump foundation. >> that's right. in other cases in previous years, the donations that he got from businesses he did business with, friends. they're more one-of private conversations. but earlier this year, the best example without a license is after he had that fundraiser in iowa. i stood on stage and said send the donald j. trump foundation your money and i'll give it to veterans, and he set up a website where anybody, including me, could give money to the trump foundation and 100% of that mean would go to veterans. the trump foundation would hand onto that money and give it away. that's textbook solicitation, and he didn't have the certification to do that. >> it's like going through a stop sign, hike what we discussed with kurt eichenwald
7:24 pm
about the violation of the embargo on cuba, but it is not, this area is not criminal law, is it? it's civil penalties that surround this, like possibly refunding the money or changing, even possibly the attorney general could shut down the foundation, couldn't sne. >> that's right. these are all civil penalties. if it was a case of oversight, they could write you a letter and say cease and desist until you get the right certification, but if they think this is part of a broader pattern, and you've abused the privileges associated with the charity, they could force the trump foundation to give all the money back that they raised illegally or take away its new york state registrations. it would have to move to a different state if he wanted to continue the charity. >> thank you very much for being here and taking our call when the phone rang the second you posted this piece tonight. we really appreciate it.
7:25 pm
>> it's great to be here. thank you. coming up, rudy giuliani, donald trump, newt gingrich, three wives each, experts on women and the women vote, right? next. ♪ if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, isn't it time to let the real you shine through? introducing otezla (apremilast). otezla is not an injection or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. with otezla, 75% clearer skin is achievable after just 4 months, with reduced redness, thickness, and scaliness of plaques. and the otezla prescribing information has no requirement for routine lab monitoring. don't take otezla if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. otezla may increase the risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression or suicidal thoughts, or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla reported weight loss.

7:27 pm
7:28 pm
rudy giuliani married his cousin. the first of rudy giuliani's
7:29 pm
three wives was his cousin. and after 14 years of marriage he successfully petitioned the vatica to annul his catholic marriage to his cousin on the grounds that he did not know that she was his cousin. an annulment means just erasing the marriage as if it never existed, because of course the catholic church at that time did not recognize divorce and would not treat you as a catholic within their sacramental regime if you had gone through a divorce, so rudy giuliani, after 14 years of marriage got out of it without divorce by getting an annulment, saying that for 14 years he didn't know that he was married to his cousin. that same rudy giuliani now says that hillary clinton is too stupid to be president.
7:30 pm
exact words. too stupid to be president. those were his exact words, because of her reaction to bill clinton's liaison with monica lewinsky. rudy giuliani's second marriage was a messier one than his first. he had two children with his second wife, whose reaction to rudy giuliani having an affair at the office while he was mayor was to kick him out of gracie mansion. that's right. the wife of the mayor of new york city living in the mayor's official residence with their children kicked the mayor out. just kicked him out of the mayor's mansion, because she caught him having an affair at the office, and all of new york knew about it. newt gingrich said that hillary clinton was disgusting in the debate, because she mentioned donald trump's vicious treatment of women, including a ms.
7:31 pm
universe winner. that was the word newt gingrich clo chose, disgusting. this is the same newt gingrich who obtained both his second and third wives by having affairs with them at the office while still married to their predecessors. he told one of the mrs. gingrichs that he was divorcing her while she was in the hospital, recovering from cancer surgery. he didn't think that was disgusting. serving divorce papers on a woman who was a cancer patient in the hospital is just a day in the life of the dishonorable mr. gingrich, rudy giuliani and newt gingrich's hero, donald trump is now the subject of new reporting in the los angeles times showing that his glove club in tolf clu
7:32 pm
angeles area, that he wanted the hiring and firing of the female staff to be based solely on their attractiveness. one testified i had witnessed donald trump tell managers many times while he was visiting the club that hostesses were not quote pretty enough, and that they should be fired and replaced with more attractive women. initially, i heard mr. trump say this almost every time he visited the club, which was four or five times a year. later he made these comments less frequently, because the managers knew about their attitude and capitulated to it by changing the schedules of our employees so that the most attractive women were scheduled to work when mr. trump was scheduled to be at the club. there are also reports in that story of women being fired at that club because they weren't attractive enough for donald trump. there are many other sworn statements like that about how women were treated at donald
7:33 pm
trump's golf club in los angeles. we will discuss that and more with michel cinder and nina turner, next.
7:34 pm
7:35 pm
announcer: todd's a great guy. i mean, look at him. what. a. sweetheart. attaboy. wait, todd, what are you doing? how totally selfish and un-toddlike of you. come on, todd, come on, man. but my back pain was making it hard to sleep and open up on time. then i found aleve pm. the only one to combine a sleep aid plus the 12 hour pain relieving strength of aleve.
7:36 pm
now i'm back. aleve pm for a better am. if it does come up, though, in the next debate, do you think your past marital history is fair game. >> it's a lot different than his. i can tell you. we have a situation where we have a president who was a disaster and was you wiultimate impeached over it. >> you're not worried about your past history at all? >> not at all. i have a very good history. >> gjoining us, a former ohio state congresswoman. nina turner, your reaction to where the trump campaign and donald trump's cronies, these serial, serially married, serial
7:37 pm
polygamists, but how they are handling this crazy swerve into this territory by the trump campaign. >> i think it's business as usual, i think one thing mr. donald trump's been able to do is defy any other normal decent actions of any other presidential candidate. he just is able to sur mount these types of things. it is the height of foolishness, though, to overlay on the wife, in my opinion, the sins of the husband. there is no wife in america who would cozy up to any of the mistresses of their husband. so i think they shouldn't even go down that path, lawrence. it's just ridiculous on its face. >> and apparently, donald trump seems to think that because he, his, all of his previous wives have signed non-disclosure agreements, and they cannot legally say a word about him, in order to keep the money flowing, that he's safe, that he can
7:38 pm
just, you know, they're not going to come out and say anything about problems that they've had. but, but there seems to be no one in that campaign who can get him back onto taxes, back onto policy. >> well, it's going to be really hard for them to get him back onto the policy issues, one, because some of the things that his campaign would usually have, policies you would have laid out on your website, he doesn't have that. there's that issue going on. the second thing that's going on, the fact that this is an issue that is sticky. the idea that the clinton campaign is pushing this idea of him being a massagist in. just look at the miss america, miss universe contestant saying not only was she called ms. piggy and ms. housekeeper, but that scarred her life over 20 yea
7:39 pm
years. and so women who are undecided are really going to be able to understand this simple stuff. it's not your taxes saying oh, you're going to be audited. this is women saying oh, you body shamed other women or only cute, attractive women are allowed to be in your presence. and the clinton campaign is hoping to keep this in the news. the dnc released a statement today. they're making this stick, i think. >> ninawhat we see in the l.a. times story is that donald trump takes this all the way to violation of law. the lawsuit that is reported he here was settled by the corporation that runs donald trump's golf club there, because these people obviously had very strong legal claims about this. >> but that, and lawrence, in the private sector. now we have mr. trump has entered into the public sector
7:40 pm
several times in terms of running for president, but here he is. he is the republican nominee, and he has not relented on this deep of -- i don't even know what to call it. i cannot even believe the drama of all of this in terms of what is happening in this country and to talk about substantive issues and for mr. trump to think this is going to go away. he has been able to defy every single norm that would have knocked out any other presidential candidate would have been off the scene by now. mr. trump is still right there. there was a saying when i was growing up. sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me. well, names do hurt, and women are paying attention to this. but i don't think the democrats should get too full of themselves on this, because believe it or not, some women did vote for mr. trump in that primary, and some women are still going to vote for him in
7:41 pm
the general, even if this defies logic, it is going to happen. it's about turnout. >> and the washington republicans are begging the trump campaign to get away from this stuff and forget about the bill clinton of the 1990s. >> they are begging for him to do this, but the idea is that he's a candidate who has shown that he's going to do what he wants to do. that's part of why his base loves him so much. he's not politically correct. the idea is that after the debate, and people knowing he called her ms. piggy, he went on fox news and said she did have a weight problem. he's not saying hey, you know i don't know this woman and i'm sorry. he can't even apologize. there's none of that. he's saying you should know, i was running this corporation, and she was bad for business. so i think that yeah, republicans definitely want him to get away from this. and they want hem to be talking about stuff that really matters.
7:42 pm
because polls show that hillary clinton is seen as dishonest, and the idea that he didn't bring up the clinton foundation or benghazi is not lost on washington republicans who want him to win the next debates. >> thank you both for joining us tonight. coming up, frank rich on donald trump's bad week from the debate forward. and, new polling tonight and tonight's campaign war room. hold, because my dentures fit well. before those little pieces would get in between my dentures and my gum and it was uncomfortable. even well fitting dentures let in food particles. just a few dabs of super poligrip free is clinically proven to seal out more food particles so you're more comfortable and confident while you eat. so it's not about keeping my dentures in, it's about keeping the food particles out. try super poligrip free.

oo narrator: adventure can be found anywhere but the best place to start is in the forest. kubo: i spy something beginning with..."s" beetle: snow. kubo: no. beetle: snow covered trees. monkey: nothing to do with snow. narrator: head outside to discover incredible animals and beautiful plants that come together to create an unforgettable adventure. kubo: wow! narrator: so grab your loved ones monkey: don't even. narrator: and explore a world of possibilities. kubo: come on, this way. narrator: visit to find the closest forest or park to you. to folks out there whose diabetic nerve pain... shoots and burns its way into your day, i hear you. to everyone with this pain that makes ordinary tasks extraordinarily painful, i hear you. make sure your doctor hears you too! i hear you because i was there when my dad suffered with diabetic nerve pain. if you have diabetes and burning, shooting pain in your feet or hands, don't suffer in silence!
7:44 pm
step on up and ask your doctor about diabetic nerve pain. tell 'em cedric sent you. but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one.
7:45 pm
with it, i earn unlimited 2% cash back on all of my purchasing. and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means thousands of dollars each year going back into my business... which adds fuel to my bottom line. what's in your wallet? i thought it was, i thought lester did a very good job. i thought lester holt did a great job. >> lester holt did a great job. that was monday night. and now, three days later, donald trump can't even remember lester holt's name, because he was so unfair. >> i had to put up, then i had to put up with the anchor and fight the anchor all the time on everything i said. what a rigged deal.
7:46 pm
i tell you, we're this such a rigged -- it is terrible. >> joining us now, frank rich, writer at large, and producer of "veep." my mind flashed back to when you were a theater critic, and you can always wonder silently, i wonder if this review has any affect. >> he's had four opinions about lester holt. before the debate he first said that he was in hillary's camp. and a democrat. then it was turned out that lester holt was a registered republican. so then holt was great. then we've seen two different opinions since the debate. and you know one thing about the theater, actors are at least supposed to remember their lines. he can't even remember aute to about a not-complex issue, the
7:47 pm
issue of a moderator. >> i want to take a look at the way real professionals handle a debate. one candidate has a bad night and you can't make excuses for it. let's go back to 2012, david axelrod after the first obama versus romney debate. >> well, i think the president understands, you know, the president is his harshest critic. and without getting into detail, i think you can assume he's reviewed the tape, and it will inform how he handles these subsequent debates, and he'll make the adjustments he thinks are necessary. >> frank, the idea that anyone, anywhere near donald trump could say anything vaguely honest about, i don't know, about anything. never mind the debate. that would be asking way too much. >> by the way, do we think he's even actually watched the tape of the debate? let alone learned from it?
7:48 pm
>> right. >> i can't imagine him sitting there, even though it is his favorite subject, at least half the time -- himself. >> i want to go to your, you're out in l.a., and there's this story breaking in the l.a. times about the way donald trump has done business at the golf club he has out there in redondo beach. and it's all about hiring and firing based on looks. here is one of the sworn statements that's quoted in the l.a. times report. on one occasion, mr. trump saw a young, attractive hostess working, named nicole and directed that she be brought to a place where he was meeting with a group of men. after this woman had been presented to him, mr. trump said to his guests something like, see, you don't have to go to hollywood to find beautiful women. he also turned to nicole and asked, do you like jewish men? and frank, you know, we can watch a guy like trump and have our imaginations about what he

says in those kinds of situations, but it's kind of amazing that he fits, word for word, what we think he says in those situations. >> it's unbelievable. you know, he makes rodney dangerfield look like aristocracy. he's such a world class vulgar boar and bully and all the rest ever it. >> let's take a look at something hillary clinton said today about how, she's asked about how she will deal with donald trump and the trump campaign if they want to continue to talk about the troubles that bill and hillary clinton had in the 1990s. let's listen to this. >> secretary clinton, the trump campaign is signaling that they are poised to get personal about your husband's past, about your past, how will you respond at the debates, and what's your response today? >> he can run his campaign however he chooses. that's, that's up to him. i'm going to keep talking about the states in this election. i'm not going to comment on how
7:50 pm
he runs his campaign. you'll be able to see, we have two more debates. what he says and what i say. >> and frank, we know the washington republicans who have experience with this subject trying to convince the trump campaign, stay away from it, stay away from it. >> the problem with trump is, he has no memory or no interest in even recent history. if he did, he might realize that when the republicans did it at the time of the scandals, at the time of impeachment, it blew up in their faces. it basically destroyed the career of newt gingrich, who might remember some of the history himself while he's advising trump. i think it's a plus for hillary clinton if he brings this up. it just plays into everything he's been doing the past week and throughout, attacking women. >> frank rich, thank you very much for joining us. really appreciate it. >> good to see you. up next, in the campaign war room, the very first polling now is in, showing what happened to

time for tonight's campaign war room. polling analyst nate silver is expecting a bounce for hillary clinton's campaign after monday's presidential debate. today he tweeted clinton back above 60% in all of our forecasts now, probably more bounce to come in the next few weeks. few days, i'm sorry. he doesn't mean 60% of the vote. she has a 63% chance of winning the presidential election. today iowa became the first battle ground state to begin in-person early voting. go right in, cast your vote. secretary clinton was in iowa today, of course, where she tried to turn her post-debate momentum into votes. >> we've got a bunch of active
7:54 pm
iowans here. are you ready to go to the polls? well, luckily, in iowa, you can start today. lots of folks don't have that opportunity across the country. so, when you finish here, you can go vote. and we can be on the path to victory here in iowa. >> with just 39 days left for the presidential campaign war room, joining us is jefrey pollack, one of the pollsters for hillary clinton's super pac priorities usa. so we're seeing a little tick up. >> there's only been about three or four polls, and three of those have shown her to be up by about four points. one of them has her up by one. but it's a pollster who's a fraud and shillster for the republicans. so if all of those are true, and that's why i think you saw nate
7:55 pm
silver give the lift. yesterday that number was in the 54%. it's now up something like 10%. i think that's what you're going to see is a small bump. it's not going to be huge. that's my expectation. last time, mitt romney w the debate, and he saw his numbers move about four and a half percent. so i don't think you're going to see as huge of a movement. this is about inches right now. and those inches are moving in hillary's direction. >> let's take a look at this ad that just went up today online for hillary clinton, and it has someone who voted in iowa today. >> you wrote in your christmas card this year, i've come to the decision that i must live to do my part november 2016. i can dilator, you wrote. >> that's right. i'm doing all right so far.

it lets little girls know that you can be anything you want to be in this country. people won't have to wonder whether they're going to be a schoolteacher or a nurse. you're going to win. the sky's the limit now. you can be president. >> jeffrey, the two things i'm seeing out of the clinton campaign are going in to try to pull people away from third party voting. president obama and michelle did all that, and women, women, women. the women vote is constant. >> well, i mean, as it relates to third party vote, we've talked about it before. i think you're going to see a little bit of the weakening. the third party vote has been artificially high. part of this effort to move the third party voter, young people in particular is to say hey, your vote really does matter, and as early vote in iowa and

others start very shortly, that's part of it. women, that is a natural thing for hillary. she's going to dominate in terms of, she wins this election by having females and the gender gap in her favor and donald trump is playing into that. every day he wants to talk about -- >> are you writing these lines for donald trump? >> i wish. i would love to say we did. >> we're hagoing to have to lea it there. we'll be right back. 80% of women say a healthy lifestyle is a priority. but up to 90% fall short in getting key nutrients from food alone. let's do more.
