taking off right after the show. we'll talk and curse al roker in just a little while. let's start with politics though. in one week the polls will be open. let's get right to the state of the race. seven days to go. this morning the fbi is poring through thousands of e-mails found on anthony weiner's laptop looking for any connection to the ongoing investigation into hillary clinton. >> despite that newest e-mail controversy, our newest nbc news/survey monkey online poll shows clinton holding a six-point lead. >>h out, both campaigns are if high gear today. trump has two rallies in states like pennsylvania and wisconsin. clinton makes three stops in florida. she's keeping her powerful surrogates busy as well with president obama, vice president biden and senator bernie sanders all on the campaign trail for her. nbc national correspondent peter alexander starts us off this morning. peter, good morning. >> reporter: matt, savannah, good morning to you. this morning campaign aides tell me that donald trump and his
go on offense today with a policy speech calling for an end to obamacare. we've learned that investigators made a duplicate of the hard drive from the laptop belonging to anthony weiner and are now poring through it. >> reporter: battered by donald trump's criticism about her latest e-mail issue -- >> what is in those e-mails is absolutely devastating. >> reporter: hillary clinton's now looking to get back on offense, taking aim at trump's alleged >> donald trump should immediately disclose all of his ties and connections to the kremlin and its associates. >> reporter: after the top senate democrat, harry reid, accused fbi director james comey of having a double standard, for refusing to release "sploes of information" regarding trump's ties to russia, nbc news has learned the fbi has launched a preliminary inquiry into former trump campaign manager paul
handwritten records, according to "the new york times," show manafort was to be paid $12.7 million in cash for representing a pro-russian politician in ukraine. while the fbi did not to nbc news' comments for inquiry, a spokesperson for manafort says it is not true. "trump has no knowledge of any of his past or present activities." also attacking the fbi director the clinton campaign highlighting a cnbc report citing one former federal official who says comey did not want the fbi to be the federal agency disclosing russia's role in recent hacking because he was concerned it could influence the election. donald trump jr. defending comey from clinton's new criticism. >> comey was the greatest guy in the world two, three months ago, now all of a sudden he's terrible and he is a partisan guy.
evidence they were supposed to hand over. >> reporter: marching into the democratic struggle with michigan, trump inteniied his attacks. >> i have a son named barron. i want to tell you, she is a terrible example for my son and for the children in this country. that i can tell you. >> reporter: this morning the fbi is barely a day and a half into analyzing the thousands of documents found on a laptop belonging to clinton aide huma abedin and her estranged husband overnight, abedin's lawyer released a statement saying she never used that laptop but remains forthcoming." >> i am sure they will reach the same conclusion they did when they looked at my e-mails for the last year. there is no case here. >> this morning there is a new poll out from this key battleground state of pennsylvania showing hillary
now. worth noting that much of that poll was completed before the fbi's announcement about its latest e-mail review. as donald trump and mike pence are trying to get more republicans to many could home to the gop ticket, new evidence this morning that at least one republican leader is still staying away. a spokesperson for john kasich telling nbc news that the ohio governor has now filed his ballot absentee writing in his write john mccain. matt and savann off, thank you. let's bring in steve kornacki and nicolle wallace. nicolle, starting with you. you've been on campaigns and in this position a week to go before election day. do campaigns view that amount of time as an eternity or a nanosecond? >> well, somewhere in between. imhere's how political information is processed. even if you have a debate where
sometimes, it is the coverage of said debate and sometimes it is the facebook posts about the coverage about the debate. there is about a 72-hour window for political information to sink in and be processed and be judged. after about thursday or early friday, it is very hard to introduce new arguments into this campaign cycle. >> we are going to look more deeply into our poll with steve in a moment. you can show us what the pre-comey, post-comey effect was, if anything. but i guess the question is, do enthusiasm of perhaps republicans who were thinking about holding their nose and voting for hillary clinton? are they now coming home, as donald trump and mike pence are trying to encourage them to do? >> there are some indications. there were some indications that republican voters who had been sort of hold-outs were taking a new look in the final stretch of campaign and maybe coming to the conclusion, at the end of the day, i got to be with my party on this. this might hasten all of that. we spend so much time thinking
changed. maybe that's not the right question here as much as it is who is going to be more motivated because of this. i can see that happening for republicans. >> how much does attitude of a candidate come into play now? isn't it true that a candidate in the final days needs to start to project positivity? in other words, a sense that we're doing well, and then perception becomes reality for voters? >> yeah. listen, this may be another one of the bygone traditions of presidential politics. you typically pull your negative ads down in a final weekend. positive, affirmative message but there's nothing normal about this candidacy. a, i don't know a lot of republicans recognize home with a head lamp and a map. and it speaks to his deficit. i think upwards of 90% of democrats are behind their nominee. he struggled to get beyond 75% of republicans. so it makes an interesting case for the map that he's chosen. he's in states where he is not on offense. he has a big gap.
what is he projecting. >> it wouldn't be a fun political segment if we didn't send steve over to the wall. looking at this tracking poll nbc conducts for survey monkey. >> peter mentioned the headline. 47%-41%. that's where the race stands right now. of course the big question is last week, this is a weekly tracking poll. they're out there every day taking the poll. you can see last week before that announcement from the fbi, they were finding 47%-41% clinton. then two days of a the announcement, 47%-41%. impact in terms of the polling here. bottom not dropping out for hillary clinton as a result. >> i'm going to go way, way out on a limb here. i many and going to suggest that perhaps whether people see the comey letter as a distraction or a significant might fall along party lines. >> you would be amazed to know how divided this country is. first of all, there is the overall question -- is it important or a distraction. slight majority saying important. if you are a democrat, 83% say that's just a distraction. it's not important. if you are a republican,
for trump at all, if you look at independent voters, they are more likely to say it is important. maybe a bit of an opening there for him. >> steve and nicolle, thank you, as always. let's talk now about a frightening scene in alabama br a gasoline pipeline exploded killing at least one worker. this happened near the site of a rupture back in september that led to gas shortages across the south. this morning that pipeline is shut down once again. nbc's gabe gutie latest on this. gabe, good morning to you. >> reporter: matt, good morning. several roads here remain blocked off as authorities have managed to contain this fire and are now letting it burn itself out. many analysts and aaa expect that alabama's second major pipeline disruption in less than two months could mean higher prices at the month. >> oh, my god, it is growing so fast. >> reporter: this morning, authorities in alabama are scrambling to find out how much
impact the nation's gas supply, the blast sending flames and thick smoke soaring over shelby county. >> we're going to evacuate the command area. >> reporter: firefighters rushed to contain the blaze as it burned dozens of acres in an area already plagued by severe drought. >> chief, i'm going to need three engines, 1,000 gallons onboard. >> reporter: overnight colonial, the company that owns the pipeline, confirmed one worker was killed, five others injured. the company says an excavator ey igniting the fire. eyewitness larry garner was among the first on the scene and saw one worker covered in flames. >> picked up one man that was working down there and brought him up there and washed the gas off of him, send him on to the hospital. >> reporter: the explosion happened just miles from the site of a pipeline leak just a few weeks ago. that incident caused gas shortages and sent pump prices soaring across the southeast. line stretches from texas to new
east coast fuel. overnight colonial said our deepest condolences go out tonight to the family and friends of the person who was lost. >> our crews are moving here now to set up an incident and command post and will be responding to all the resources available to them. but in any kind of situation like this, you can never feel comfortable until it is over. >> reporter: that pipeline remains shut down. it is unclear for how long. overnight, gasoline futures significantly in overnight trading. again, analysts expect that could mean higher prices at the pump for a large swath of the country in the coming weeks. >> gabe gutierrez, thank you. now to a halloween night tragedy. it happened in rural mississippi. two children and one adult were killed, several others suffered life threatening injuries when a truck plowed into a halloween hayride. this happened in newton county about 80 miles east of jackson. all ten victims were on a
crash and so far, police say there have been no arrests. we are hearing for the first time the voice of omar mateen, the gunman responsible for the largest mass shooting in u.s. history. orlando police released new audio recordings on monday from the pulse nightclub massacre that occurred back on june 12th. on the chilling 911 tapes, mateen explains to a police crisis negotiators his reasons behind the deadly rampage. >> can you tell me where you are right now so help? >> no. because you have to tell america to stop bombing syria and iraq. they are killing a lot of innocent people. >> a s.w.a.t. team swarmed in about three hours after the initial 911 call. they killed mateen. in all, 49 victims were killed, 53 wounded. a judge will now decide whether to release more than 200 other calls recorded during that rampage.
strike in philadelphia could have a big effect on election day. more than 100 workers walked off the job after not reaching a contract agreement. subway, bus and trolley service were brought to a halt. with election day just one week allay, they may seek an injunction to force striking workers back on the job if no resolution by next tuesday. anticipation is high in cleveland and tonight's pivotal game six of the world series. the indians have a chance to close things out and win their first title in 68 years. they could do it at home. for the cubs, it is a must-win to force game seven. nbc's ron mott is at progressive field in cleveland. ron, good morning. >> reporter: hey, matt, good morning to you. fans here in cleveland are pretty confident about their team's chances going into game six tonight with this 3-2 games series advantage.
pressure on these teams is enormous. the anguish, the anxiety, the anticipation. this world series has been exhilarating and exhausting for fans of both clubs. narrowly missing a three-game sweep of the cubs at wrigley field to take the crown, the tribe's back home in cleveland on a quest -- win one and it's done. >> it's been a long time. >> it couldn't be a better match-up. >> reporter: chicago transplant sean la i is there any one team more deserving than this thing? >> absolutely the cubs. >> reporter: naturally, the indians are the talk of the town ahead tonight's game six. one caller after another on sports talk radio virtually certain a championship is headed their way. another cleveland champ, lebron james, tweeting -- one more, boys. and historyis on their side. the last team to battle back 3-1 games to win it on the road was
history have ever done it, home or away. still, the cubs are focused yet loose. team president theo ebbstein handing out candy. manager joe maddon showing up to work in this, while their smallest fans scribble well wishes on the bricks outside wrigley. meantime, indians super fan, 104-year-old emily known simply at nana, is gearing up yet again with a pointer or guys. >> i want them to steal more bases. >> reporter: ticket prices for tonight's game, a home run for sellers. stubhub says average price for a resold ticket, $1,400. the high, $11,000. and the prices only go up from there for game seven, if there is is a game seven. >> you are going to fly out to cleveland after the show. >> absolutely.
i got to do it. it's hard to believe how warm it's actually going to be for this game. we're talking about game six tonight. 69 degrees november 1st in cleveland. if there is a game seven, we've got some late game showers and a temperature possibly of 70 degrees! that's crazy. wide, big area of high pressure pushes the jet stream up to the north. you have this strong high pushing that warm air up into the midwest. we've got the risk of some new orleans, three days in a row of record-breaking temps. atlanta, three days and the hits just keep coming. could set a record today in atlanta. montgomery, mobile, new orleans and birmingham. as we move into the upper in i had west, cincinnati, 82. louisville could see a record. same with nashville and memphis. it stretches out west as well from roswell, little rock, on into wichita.
much. just ahead -- donald trump and hillary clinton going nuclear. raging battle over who you should trust with america's security. and are you too trusting when you hop into one of those ride sharing services like uber or lyft? why police say that driver may not be who you think. but first on a tuesday
coming moment. a couple taking a dip in a pool suddenly attacked by a liberty mutual stood with me when i was too busy with the kids to get a repair estimate. liberty did what? yeah, with liberty mutual all i needed to do to get an estimate was snap a photo of the damage and voila! voila!

[ chuckles ]
we're back now, 7:30 on a tuesday morning. 1st day of november, 2016. morning after halloween. no candy coma for our energetic crowd. >> present company excluded. >> and my kids we'll be outside saying hi to those people in a couple of minutes. inside our studio, here is a look at the headlines this morning. overnight, iraqi troops trying to take back mosul from isis entered that city for the first time in more than two years. officials tell us they're being met with heavy resistance now from isis fighters and are facing what could be difficult house-to-house fighting. during a late night rally, hillary clinton tried to throw cold water on the fbi's review of those newly discovered e-mails that could be related to
more e-mails of one of my staffers, by all means, go ahead. look at them. and i know they will reach the same conclusion they reached when they looked at my e-mails last year. meantime, the fbi has launched a preliminary inquiry into donald trump's former campaign manager. it is focused on his foreign business connections. and our latest nbc news/survey monkey online poll that was conducted in the days before and after the comey maintaining a six-point lead over trump. that is virtually unchanged since last week. in "today's campaign moment," a changing of the guard on social media. the white house has just announced that when president obama leaves office, he will also leave behind the @potus twitter account and hand it over to his successor. that person will inherent the account's more than 11 million followers. president obama, meanwhile, will
called @potus44. similar new accounts will also be created for the first lady and the vice president. in the meantime, the clinton campaign is out with a new ad. in the last week of the race. it is raising some eyebrows. nbc's hallie jackson has more on that. hallie, good morning to you. >> reporter: hi there, matt, good morning. with just seven days to go, hillary clinton's trying to hammer home her argument that donald trump is simply too dangerous to be commander in chief by referencing one of the most famous a political ads ever, an ad the trump campaign is brushing off as just a distraction from, they say, clinton's own controversies. >> reporter: an already-explosive campaign now going nuclear in a manner of speaking. >> bomb the [ bleep ] out of them. >> one, two -- >> reporter: clinton team turning to this black and white ad from the height of the cold war. >> these are the stakes. >> reporter: a mushrooming
on-air war. clinton playing off perhaps the most famous presidential ad of all time. it starred this little girl, then just 3 years old. >> this was me in 1964. the fear of nuclear war that we had as children, i never thought our children would ever have to deal with that again. >> reporter: now if the final week of the campaign, clinton trying to capitalize on the concern some have of trump being in the oval office, reinforcing her message on tv >> even the prospect of an actual nuclear war doesn't seem to bother donald trump. good luck. enjoy yourselves, folks, was what he had to say about a potential nuclear conflict. >> reporter: here's what donald trump actually said to cnn if had march about more u.s. allies getting more nuclear weapons. >> we're better off, frankly, if south korea is going to start to correct itself. >> saudi arabia? >> saudi arabia, absolutely. >> reporter: with msnbc's chris
cards off the table. >> how about europe? >> i'm not going to take it off the table. >> reporter: but a month later, he told matt and savannah heren on "today" -- >> i would be the last to use nuclear weapons. it is a horror to use nuclear weapons. >> reporter: the trump campaign calling clinton's new ad is sad and pathetic attempt to change the subject away from the criminal investigation into her illegal e-mail server. some trump supporters insisting it's clinton who's actually more dangerous, more like this man who remembers the original lbj ad. >> it is a very powerful thing. >> do you think this is equally as powerful for hillary clinton? >> i think it is just another one of her tricks. >> reporter: so, what do the numbers show? our latest nbc news/"wall street journal" poll shows more people believe clinton would be a better commander in chief than trump. 52%-32%. we should note -- that poll was taken before friday's fbi e-mail news. matt?
to other news this morning. embattled comedian bill cosby, he heads back to court today for a key hearing tied to the sexual assault allegations tied to him. stephanie gosk is outside the courthouse in pennsylvania this morning. >> reporter: good morning. cosby is back here for what is the first round of pre-trial hearings. he will once again argue that the sexual assault charges against him be thrown out. his lawyers will say that there was an those charges. among their other arguments, that the 79-year-old is nearly blind and the victim of racism. bill cosby's lawyers now say their client is legally blind and that his memory is fading. making it impossible to defend himself against charges that he drugged and molested andrea constandat his pennsylvania home in 2004. cosby's lawyers refer to 13 other alleged victims ready to
what prosecutors call a pattern of behavior dating back to the '60s. in court documents, the defense argues mr. cosby cannot even determine whether he is ever even seen some of his accusers, let alone develop defenses. cosby has never been charged with any crimes based on their accusations and denies the claims. in a motion filed late monday, the defense said the 13 women in question are unreliable and failed to demonstrate a signature pattern of conduct. the defense also believes cosby in court documents, lawyers argue that when the at least 50 women accusing cosby of sexual assault or misconduct started coming forward, the public jumps into a mob willing to believe unsubstantiated decades-old allegations against an african-american citizen. >> he taught an absolute generation of americans to trust in america, that trust in america regardless of who you are, where you are from or the
you fairly and with decency. that trust has been shaken. >> what about us black women whom he sexually violated? >> reporter: we interviewed this cosby accuser, millie bernard, and read her parts of the recent court documents. >> they say this is "a highly publicized crusade against mr. cosby." bernard accuses cosby of drugging and raping her three times in the early '90s when she guest starred on "the cosby show." she never went to authorities and cosby denies the accusations. >> he is paralleling my holding him accountable for his drugging and raping me to his being a victim of racism to his being a victim of a modern day lynching. what that does is it denigrates the souls of the real heroes in the civil rights movement. >> reporter: bernard is not among the 13 women who may be called to testify. nbc news has learned from court documents and the witnesses themselves that at least two of the women are african-american. the defense argues that the
chosen to trigger racist sensibilities in the jury. bernard disagrees. >> what is keeping bill cosby out of jail is not the color of his skin. it is the power. it is his monetary worth. >> reporter: you can expect the prosecution to make a similar argument today in court. they will say that there has not been an unconstitutional delay and that cosby has used his fame and fortune to, in their words, "cover up his crimes." savannah. >> stephanie gosk at the courthouse f let us get another check of the weather from mr. roker. >> things a little unsettled out in the midwest. we're already seeing showers in the upper great lakes and some snow into canada. a weak frontal system is pushing through hand a low pressure will develop along that later this afternoon. overnight look for storms to develop through iowa, then pushing on into parts of northern illinois, including chicago, by late in the afternoon tomorrow. those push toward cleveland in
activity on thursday for the game. they could see some showers. rainfall amounts generally about one to two inches, but we're basically looking at about a half-inch, stretching from missouri all the way on up into >> and check that weather any time you need it. go to the weather channel on cable. >> all right, al, thank you. just ahead on "trending," the one song they say you should listen to to feel instantly less

signs to lure people into their cars. >> it is tremendously scary. we know from individual complaints we've got where people feel locked in the car. one incident where someone was taken to an atm and the driver demanded that they get more cash because he raised the price. >> reporter: the better business bureau says rogue drivers often prey on people who appear stressed, tired or distracted. >> you ma i let your guard down and fail to check that license plate, nail to check that it is the model vehicle >> reporter: uber and lyft, along with safety advocates, recommend always use the app to request a ride and never accept rides from drivers in person. match the actual license plate number with the number on your app. ask your driver who he or she is picking up before getting in. and if you're riding alone, sit in the back seat. >> look out for yourself. you have to have your own back. >> the penalties for posing as an official uber driver or a lyft driver are relatively weak.
for harsher punishment. usually it is just a small fine. as you order those cars, be sure to have your head up and be careful. matt? savannah? >> good advice, jo. thank you very much. coming up, adele's most candid interview ever. what she's revealing about parenting, personal battles, and more. and what you have been saying about our totally '90s halloween costume reveal. but first, these messages. but first, these messages. well this here's a load-bearing wall. we'll go ahead and rip that out. that'll cause a lot of problems. hmm. dget. we'll be totally behind schedule, right?

thank you very much. as we mentioned this morning, we're launching no shave today to raise awareness for men's health. we're going to be growing out our facial hair throughout the month of november. we've also partnered with dr. oz to highlight some important issues. first up, testicular cancer. dr. oz, good morning. let's get it out of the way right off the bat. people hear testicular cancer. men, they get embarrassed with be they don't want to talk ba it. it deals with a part of the body they are i think 55% of men say this embarrasses them. >> i get it. i tell my patients all the time, you got to be the expert on your body. men shy away, this is an awkward part of the body, things you don't talk about. take a peek at this interesting video. you'll enjoy this. >> it can be pretty hard to get a man's attention. but this is about men's health
incorporating some guy stuff in this video to keep you interested. here's three easy steps to check yourself for testicular cancer at home. first, go in the shower. because the steam will relax your scrotum. next, hold each testicle in your hand one at a time between your fingers and your thumbs. feel for hard lumps. smooth or rounded bumps side but not the other. if you found any of those or notice a change in size, see your doctor. now you know how to take your health into your own hands. literally. >> that's brilliant. >> put the car in there for jay. >> little slam dunk as well. that's great. 88% of men in our survey that we conducted if conjunction with you said they know they should screen themselves once a month. only 14% say they do.
they don't really know what to do and how to do it. thus, the psa. but it is bigger than that. the fact of the ma earth is we're embarrassed because these are sexual organs. things that have to do with basic bodily function we don't get into. this whole month is about taking care of yourself so you are there for your family. >> what age should men start checking themselves doing self-examinations. >> at around age 15. cancer is my opinion is start at age 15. many medical societies agree. at least through the next two decades of life. all the good behaviors we adapt we start when we're young. get in the shower and collection it out. >> if you can find this early, incredibly curable especially if it stays localized. >> men are a little clueless on this stuff. we really are intimidated and embarrassed and we shouldn't be. we'll spend some time this week
bit more comfortable. >> a good way to remember this is when you see us growing our hair out and looking scruffy, terrible, think i should be doing a self-examination for testicular cancer or prostate cancer, colon cancer. get screened for that. that's what the purpose of the month is. >> it's what a real man does. we put some manly things in the video. mentally take control. it is your destiny. >> carson is in the orange room with more. thanks, to help us kick off our no shave today, mark hedstrom is raising money for men's health charities. good to have you here. thanks so much. you guys do a lot of great work. what specifically -- what specific charities are you raising money for? >> we raise money for the movember foundation.
we are in 21 countries around the world. we've raised $710 million in 13 years. this is our 13th campaign. >> when people see the mustache, the whole idea of this was for what? for mustache to just be a reminder? >> it is a reminder -- i have a terrible mustache about ten days in. but the point is to start a conversation about men's health. when you see a guy on the street with a ten-day old mustache, you'll start asking a q billboards for are men's health. >> mark, thanks so much. we'll be growing our beards and mustaches out this month. if you are, too, send your photos using this hashtag "no-shave today" of course their hashtag is movember. mark, good luck this month. thank you. coming up next, dana carvey is about to leave some lasting impressions on all of us. but first, this is "today"

the only thing -- i've spent the year trying to figure out the appeal of donald trump. and he's a blunt force instrument. so like if your cause is global warming and are you going to the conference, who would you rather have with you than donald trump? he would be like, you know, you stupid countries, okay? you're very, very stupid. okay? you're spewing all this stuff in the air, the air's get egg hot, the grass is getting hot, ouch, ouch, ouch, ouch. i will be so good with global warming. i'll solve global warming. i can promise you that. i know how to make glaciers. okay, matt? i can make a lot of glaciers. i'll take all the ice from the trump hotel. that's a lot of ice,ky tell you that. i would put it on the carnival cruise ships. i know these people. they're friends of mine. okay? so that's trump. that's why the people who love him love him and the undecideds
