11:35 pm
those pictures tell the story. that's the hillary clinton campaign, you see tears at the clinton campaign. now, at the trump headquarters, you hear the cheers, you see the hats. donald trump has 222 electoral votes to 209 for hillary clinton. it's getting close. >> and in the war room in trump tower, they're getting very excited. we said conventional wisdom was wrong, and so is political science. everyone said they weren't ready for prime time, but they made
11:36 pm
people criticized them for that, but seems to have been smart. the visit to michigan, seems like a smart play. and the supporters still there, they put up with a lot, and now they're there. >> a small state, iowa, six electoral votes, last republican voted for, bush in 2004. it's gone to donald trump. and jon karl, now hillary clinton has one path? >> s she needs to win all of those states we just mentioned in that industrial midwest. pennsylvania, michigan, wisconsin, minnesota, and she needs to hang on to the state of nevada. if she does that, she narrowly wins. let's look at it on the possibilities board. so, here's where we are. if she wins michigan, new hampshire, nevada, pennsylvania,
11:37 pm
of wisconsin to get over 270. >> so, donald trump has many, many more paths. he's still leading. let's go through the states, he's still leading in most of those states. >> let's go back to the map. running out of states that are still open. pennsylvania, clinton now up slightly. but donald trump is up in new hampshire, michigan, donald trump leading. wisconsin, donald trump is up three points, 70% remaining. minnesota, clinton has the lead. but right now, she has to win in three states where donald trump is leading. >> and wisconsin, a fairly healthy lead, three points? >> yes. and here's one county that caught my eye.
11:38 pm
wisconsin. door county, right here, he's got a three-point lead with, i'm sorry. i'm going to get -- door county, he has a lead where barack obama won by double digits in 2008, and by seven points in 2012. it's a place where the median income is $50,000, 96% state that's been democratic, but suddenly, it's the trump demographic. >> and ohio, that could tell you about some other states. >> if you look at ohio, which looks like it's going to be an eight to ten point victory for donald trump, and extrapolate the voters there. wisconsin, and michigan, and right now, the odds completely
11:39 pm
the next president of the united states. >> if he wins michigan or wisconsin, either one, he wins. >> terry, you were talking about brexit. >> it's deja vu, the polls and pundits, britain would never leave the european union. they were being told by the betters the voters of great brit britain, the smart play was to stay in the unwashed, the people who voted for brexit were not in the higher classes for sure, and they came out and socked the establishment in the face. that feels like what's happening because of donald trump. i just want to take a step back.
11:40 pm
triumph. this is a personal endeavor. and his sister, a judge on the new york state supreme court, said i knew better when i was a child to compete with donald, because he always wins. >> i think putin is excited, and other world leaders are a little fearful about what would happen under a dontr he said the generals have been reduced to rubble. let's remember what the trump supporters are voting for. ban on muslims, build a wall, offended mexicans, lashed out at a gold star family, and the access hollywood tape. we haven't talked about it a lot this evening, but the white
11:41 pm
after that tape was released didn't care. i mean, really didn't care. [ inaudible ] >> of white evangelical votes than we've ever seen in our polling, 87%. it might not have been a personal campaign for donald trump in the traditional sense, but there was definitely a campaign in the churches. mike pence going out, and the turnout was high. >> go ahead. >> you use the word fear talking about foreign leaders responding to this. i have a number of e-mails from friends across the country. there's also an amount of fear from brown america. the optics of the trump rally. to many people, that looks like 1950 america. you don't see many brown people
11:42 pm
the rhetoric we've heard throughout the campaign, this may be a wonderful opportunity to pivot back to people of color and say, don't be nervous. because many are this evening. >> and senator ron johnson has defeated russ feingold 52% to 45%. so, if this continues, looks like you republican senate. >> looks like 50%/50%, maybe with another republican breaking the tie. and pennsylvania, looks like the republican vote that's outstanding. that blue wall, this always happens in politics. the three big republican
11:43 pm
wisconsin, three of the key states, looks like it's totally crumbling. >> that wisconsin senate race is a shocker. that's one that most republicans today that i spoke to thought was going to go to the democrats. we have a very good day for republicans, not good for all republicans on the top, but a very good day for republicans in the senate, and also the house. looks like we're projecting they'll lose no more than house. >> and what are we seeing out of madison county, wisconsin? >> let's take a look. 70 -- in madison, 71% of the votes in, obviously, huge clinton vote there. but 29% still to come in. >> how about dane county? >> dane county, right next door. wait.
11:44 pm
there it is. 71% in, and obviously, it's a big democratic county. so, there still are a lot of outstanding democratic votes potentially out there. but trump has a solid lead. >> and we've all talked about how unpopular both candidates are, how high the dislikability is, and how untrusted they both were. but voters would rather go with a insider. instead of going with somebody they didn't like as the insider, they went with the outsider. >> and tom, you spent a lot of time with the trump campaign. how much thought have they put into what he would do as president? how prepared are they for this tradition, and transition to take over? >> you had governor chris christie heading up his transition team.
11:45 pm
the last two weeks. but he had a core group with giuliani, christie, donald trump, mike pence, jeff sessions. we'll see how that cabinet could shake out. but to be completely honest, i don't know if they have thought that far into the future. another quick update inside the war room, they're high-fiving each other, trump family members looks like they're almost celebrating the victory tonight. >> and almost the complete opposite for hillary clinton, what comes next. the press corps were joking, they had essentially started measuring the drapes. hillary clinton had 350 fundraisers, he had 50.
11:46 pm
democrats not only underestimated donald trump but the entire republican party. >> let's look at the national vote, donald trump has pulled ahead in the national vote, 48% to 47%, about 1.5 million votes. alex castellanos? >> well, maybe there's some reasons that men voted against the first woman president, and all of that. but underneath this, donald trump had a clear message, he was change, make again. they were selling t-shirts in the airport, the trump t-shirts said, make america great again. the hillary clinton ones said, hillary clinton 2016. there was no message, vision offering the american people better. they tested 85 slogans in the campaign. not finding that clear message, the campaign, i think, with the vision and the the message may have had an edge.
11:47 pm
establishment republicans that did not support donald trump. >> yes. >> what happened? >> looking like we didn't do well. i think that what we're seeing today is frankly, a rejection of hillary clinton. i think people looked around and said, i'd rather vote for the devil i don't know than the devi devil i know. i think the comey letter was hurtful to her. i think it's astounding that he hurt clinton began organizing in florida well over a year ago. when you compare to what mitt romney did in 2012, he lost florida. mccain lost florida. i think the turnout was wrong in po the polls. the same way that romney underestimated the amount of obama coalition members that
11:48 pm
came out. >> if you don't have a vision to inspire people, all the machinery in the world won't deliver people to the polls. >> i interviewed donald trump in 2013 in iowa, nobody thought he was going to run. i don't think he thought he was going to run at this point. i asked him, what would the motto of a trump presidential campaign be? this is 2013. he said, i think it would be make america i went back and looked at the old interviews, he's been consistently on the message. >> you broke the story. >> exactly. but the same thing happened with hillary clinton, the campaign at the end was entirely a negative campaign. donald trump is unfit for
11:49 pm
nuclear war. >> she talked about -- go ahead. we have a projection. >> the state of georgia, 16 electoral votes, they will go to donald trump as well. bill clinton won it in 1992, republicans have won it ?ever since. donald trump continues that tradition. the map continues to get smaller and smaller. the lead for donald trump gets bigger and bigger. he n >> he certainly is. and this is fascinating. a key question that we ask every four years. the track of this country, if you think it's on the wrong track. 93% who say wrong track went with trump, 32% who didn't believe wrong track, went with hillary. and noncollege white men, by 49 points, donald trump won
11:50 pm
since 1980, an 11-point gap. >> and in pennsylvania, when voters were saying the white working-class men were enthusiastic about donald trump, they were the hidden vote. >> donald trump, 26 electoral votes from victory. such an exciting night. we'll be right back.
11:51 pm
phone by google. exclusively on verizon. the only next gen network that lets you get the most out of it. how is this possible? vo: because verizon lte advanced delivers 50% faster peak speeds in 450 cities, coast to coast. buy a pixel and get up to $400 back. and get 20 gigs of data with no surprise overages, and 4 lines for only $40 each.
11:52 pm
and we're back now, coming up on midnight in the east. donald trump, let's look at the map. he has the lead, 244 electoral votes to 209 for hillary clinton. you need 270 to win. you see the states out there right now. hillary clinton has to run the table right now, donald trump is ahead in most of the states right now. matthew, this is really
11:53 pm
coming up. >> regardless of the final outcome, which i think heavily leans in donald trump's favor, this is the biggest political news story in at least 100 years. donald trump, not favored to win against 16 opponents, wins the primary, comes to an election totally behind, against the establishment, and he's about, of pulling off. and i think we're going to look back at this, more so than any other presidential election. >> nate silver, you had a hillary clinton election over 70%. >> we were a lot more cautious
11:54 pm
underperforms in the midwest, she could win the popular vote, but there are a lot of swing states in the west, if you lose wisconsin, she can maybe hold michigan, pennsylvania, and get to a 269-269 tie. but when you lose ohio and iowa by three to five points, when michigan is in jeopardy, her coasts. you have plenty of votes, maybe more than donald trump. but that leads to her maybe not winning the white house. >> and what is your projection? >> right now, clinton with a 20% chance, but that's without wisconsin being called. when wisconsin is called, she has to win arizona or some
11:55 pm
running the table that would go to the house of representatives. not much of a reward, because the house would be republican. but if she ran the table, it could be a tie. >> let's look at the states still out there. jon, start with wisconsin. >> stranger things have happened, i keep thinking, but i don't know if have happened. the odds that he would be the republican nominee were ast astronomically small, but now this has happened. michigan, it's tight. but 48%, 47%, hillary clinton is und
11:56 pm
clearly, the big city, african-american vote in wayne county is not turning out for hillary clinton. >> and arizona, donald trump has a lead. >> 68% reporting, closer than you would have expected. but it's highly unlikely she's going to win the state of arizona. >> cokie, it's astonishing. >> arizona have voted to increase the minimum wage, a the minimum wage are also voting for hillary clinton. >> and in arizona tonight, joe arpaio has lost. >> and john mccain has won. >> we're just moments away from midnight. have to take another quick break. crucial point in the race. all eyes on michigan, wisconsin,
11:57 pm
back on metv. stay where you are. we will be right back. tom: and welcome back to our 2016 new hampshire votes coverage. we have a lot of barn burners going on here in the state of new hampshire tonight. no concession speeches. no victory speeches. and very close races from the top to the bottom. the u.s. senate race right now, kelly ayotte continues to hold onto a two-point lead over challenger, maggie hassan.
11:58 pm
the recent governor. this is 71% of the vote in. chris sununu i 50% holding on. but now it is a four-point spread. tom: and in the first congressional district race between frankie gittin and carol shea-porter, frank guinta still holding onto a one-point lead. that's with 79% of the vote in. the votes coming in very slowly as towns deal with right in valid's -- with write in ballots. stephanie:stephanie: in the second congressional district, this is a two-point spread. tom: in the top of the ticket right now, donald trump is holding onto a three-point lead over hillary clinton with about 71% of the vote in.
11:59 pm
analysts are waiting for, why haven't these races been called yet? apparently, the numbers are still not in from all parts of portsmouth, all parts of durham, salem, nashua. their say, look him until we get a closer look at where these number's break, some of them are traditionally democratic strongholds, we cannot say we are ready to go one way or the other because it is just so tight. tom: part of the problem is that many of these towns had a number of write ins contention at the top of the ballot. stephanie: not to mention the sheer volume of voters. we don't have any idea. in durham, there was a record broken, but we don't yet know the number of voter turnout as far as new hampshire goes. also, state senator, too close to call. michigan, pennsylvania,
12:00 am
continuous coverage of this elec back live in times square, here again, george stephanopoulos. >> it's midnight on the east coast. and donald trump is racking up the victories. 244 electovo hillary clinton. only needs 26 more to become the next president of the united states. what are you hearing, tom? >> we just got a good piece of information, from john santucci. donald trump left the war room, went to his penthouse in trump tower, said he needed a moment
12:01 am
and trump tower is exploding in a good way. they feel like this is their night. and breaking down, on a simple level, matt doubt a-- dowd had big operation, and donald trump won this race by labeling people. jeb bush, low energy. he had an lying ted, crooked hillary. the night is not over, but think about this. president trump. >> president trump, would be the 45th if he wins. three key states, michigan, wisconsin, and pennsylvania. let's look at them one by one. jon, start out with michigan. >> donald trump clinging to a
12:02 am
and next door to wisconsin, donald trump has a larger lead, 76% of the vote in. we zoom back out, to pennsylvania. here's one where we have essentially a tie. about a 4,000-vote lead, out of 5 million votes cast. >> but he does not need pennsylvania, if he wins wisconsin and michigan, he's the next president of the ed the appeal of donald trump was in the rural areas. he gives them hope. they may not believe he can change anything, but he's their hope and change candidate. they rejected hillary clinton, they want the man who promises them, even if he can't deliver on the promises, he's their man. >> and the u.s., wrong track, if
12:03 am
track, you go with donald trump. and if you thought supreme court appointments were important, you go with donald trump. and the names like the bush family, john kasich in ohio not voting for trump. the voters saying, i don't care what the establishment will do, i've found my man. >> cecilia vega? >> well, in a campaign that has been nothing but surprises, how many times have we sat around a table saying, i can't believe that happened. after donald trump called
12:04 am
enough. the list goes on and on, it's been a campaign of oh, my gods. >> and my thought goes to the white house. barack obama and michelle obama in the white house, they poured everything they had into this in the final weeks. president obama, going back to the white house correspondent's dinner, contempt for donald trump. >> well, saying that ride up to the capitol on january 20th, with barack obama sitting next to donald trump in the limousine up there, it could be a pretty frosty ride. and the campaign, it was donald
12:05 am
and a twitter account. >> and a lot of media exposure. >> we haven't talked abiliout t media. donald trump talked about this, tom knows this. >> every night. >> we weren't telling the truth, we were the corrupt media. don't believe whatever you hear. and apparently a lot of people bought into that. >> donald trump came to the campaign with a skill set. he was a had the apprentice, other ventures. this was something he brought that no one could match. none of the establishment republicans in the debates, donald trump was the best performer on the stage, and he knocked them all off the stage. >> and trying to reflect when the last time in our history, we've had a moment when donald trump showed up. and the closest i can get,
12:06 am
populist, everybody thought he was a crazy man. there was no way he should be president of the united states, all of his party didn't want him to be president. he won. >> it hasn't been decided yet, 244 for donald trump, 209 for hillary clinton. new hampshire, what are we seeing there? >> first, let's share a tweet from david wrong about anything in my life. there's still a beating heart in wisconsin, but he's never been as wrong. what state did you want to go to? >> let's go to new hampshire. >> 77% reporting, and donald trump continues to lead in the state of new hampshire. >> and michigan? >> michigan, still tight. but donald trump with more than
12:07 am
next door, wisconsin, donald trump, the lead if anything is expanding. most of the vote is in in dane county, and milwaukee, not a lot more democratic votes to mine. >> and how about minnesota and nevada? >> minnesota, hillary clinton up six points. nevada, a solid six-point lead. >> and pennsylvania? >> pennsylvania, tight. look at donald trump is back in the lead in the state of pennsylvania by about 8,000 votes. >> so he's ahead in pennsylvania, ahead in michigan, ahead in new hampshire, ahead in wisconsin right now. >> it's looking like a trump victory. >> just a little note from over the northern border, the canadian government's
12:08 am
move to canada. you can try it yourself, it crashed tonight. it was overloaded. so, the international shockwaves have started. >> charlie? >> you can't take, give him enough credit for doing this. for pulling this off. and i don't mean, i don't want to be a debbie downer. but one of the things that's so dismaying, people can't talk to each other anymore. they conversations with each other. because the feelings are so heated. no matter who wins this thing, that's not going away. the deep divisions have divided us as a country. and that, that hurts. >> and that's going to be a big challenge for whoever becomes the next president. and debra roberts is in johnstown, pennsylvania.
12:09 am
supporters, but now we're down to the faithful few, just biting their nails. i asked them if they think it's over, and a couple said it's not over until it's over. they thought a week or two ago, there was something going on. the head of the republican party said, we think we're on to something, we're seeing something we haven't seen before. and also tonight, they saw a senate race to go a republican that hadn't gone so, they feel they're speaking, these are heavily trump supporters, jobs, jobs, jobs. some of the women said they reluctantly voted for donald trump, at the end of the day, jobs trump everything. so, a lot of nervous folks still waiting, but i think they're feeling confident, but it's not over until it's over.
12:10 am
martha, you spent a lot of time there. >> i have to say, i'm not surprised in those areas where debra is, because of the anger. the mayor, who i drive around with, two days ago in pennsylvania, he was showing me all the trump signs. maybe one or two hillary clinton towns. monessen, 7,500, people are moving out, and they don't have jobs. he kept saying, i don't care what donald trump says. and whoever wins tonight will not only be president, they will be commander-in-chief. not only just commander-in-chief, but we are still at war in iraq. we're still at war in afghanistan, and that is going to be immediate. i've been talking to a lot of
12:11 am
texting them, back and forth. it really is kind of across the board. i think donald trump was probably more popular in the military than even the general population. that's the place, if you want to find working-class white males, it's the military. and it's a split in society. no active duty to tell me who he's voting for. but there is a split, and there are, i was just listening to someone, he said, look, i like donald trump, i like what he says. i'm worried about the second amendment. it's the messaging that donald trump has done. >> let's go out west, jon, start with arizona and then nevada. >> arizona, trump has a solid
12:12 am
five-point lead. neither one is particularly surprising. pennsylvania, the lead going back and forth. right now, trump up. one thing i would point out, pittsburgh, allegany coheny cou. 25% of the vote is in. >> and donald trump can afford >> he can absolutely afford to lose pennsylvania. it's shocking we're this close. and one other place that's interesting, luzerne county. looking back to 2012, obama won handily. this is steel, coal country. and donald trump winning by 20 points in a county that barack obama won just four years ago. >> cecilia vega? >> we're hearing from a donor to
12:13 am
done, over, he's the president. >> this is from a clinton donor. >> clinton donor. >> there we have it. >> we haven't heard from anybody in the campaign, they're still radio silence. and i'm told by my colleagues in the room at the javits center, we were told that hillary clinton was working on a speech in a hotel room i but the stark, stark words from a top donor to the clinton campaign, done, over, he's the president. >> if wisconsin goes for trump, and maine, too, one of the two congressional districts, i think it's gotten now for trump. it is 270. all he needs is arizona,
12:14 am
i'm pretty sure about this math, to 270. arizona, wisconsin, they look pretty strong for trump. >> and to take up something martha said, about being president elect. there's two historical things that will be broken, the glass ceiling of a woman president, or the first psi political or military experience. they've either had military or political experience, and he doesn't have either. >> and bill kristol and matthew dowd, you've worked with republican presidents and republican white houses. we're still waiting for the other states to come in. but donald trump has multiple paths. he calls you up tomorrow morning and says, what should i do?
12:15 am
>> i'll have to withdraw my application to canada. i guess the website is crashed. he needs to unite the country. he needs to make a gracious speech, and reach out to whoever didn't vote for him. i assume secretary clinton will do something like that, and it's extremely important, the tone of donald trs amount of goodwill, even among those who have strongly opposed him, you have to hope your president succeeds. >> i would agree, but i think one of the things he needs to do, he needs to reassure them, he's going to be surrounded with people in the white house that something isn't going to go out of control.
12:16 am
his temperament. >> tom llamas, quickly. >> respectfully, i disagree with matt dowd. just because, if he wins tonight, it's a testament to himself. i did this by myself. a politician's job, to take a jaded perspective, is to get re-elected. if donald trump wins by big whatever he wants. >> donald trump, 26 electoral votes away from the white house. we'll be right back. vo: introducing the new motoz droid with moto mods, exclusively on verizon. boom! vo: transform your phone in a snap. with the only next gen network that lets you get the most out of it, because verizon lte advanced
12:17 am
and get another one free and $300 back. and get 20 gigs of data with no surprise overages, and 4 lines for only $40 each. why settle when you can have it all on verizon? what's going on here? rel from voya. we're putting away acorns. you know, to show the importance of saving for the future. so you're sort of like a spokes person? more of a spokes metaphor.
12:18 am
more "doing chores for mom" per roll more "doing chores for dad" per roll s more absorbent, so the roll can last 50% longer than the leading ordinary brand. so you get more "life" per roll.
12:19 am
and we're back now, coming up on 20 minutes after midnight on the east coast. and donald trump is coming up on victory. it's not done yet, but he has 244 electoral votes to 209 for hillary clinton. shaping up to one of, if not the most stunning upset in american political history. cecilia vega, they were exuberant, is reality setting in for the clinton camp? >> i'm hearing from democratic
12:20 am
clinton campaign that they believe the race is over for hillary clinton right now. no one from the clinton campaign has spoken publicly. that's a sign in and of itself. and hillary clinton is notor notoriously superstitious. and has been working on two speeches all day and all night. >> t camp. >> rudy giuliani talking with reporters about the future. they're calling the polls before the election prejudiced. donald trump said the election is rigged, he may end up winning a rigged election. >> and it picks up on the point
12:21 am
donald trump. >> it's a stunning thing. and a key question we always ask, which candidate is qualified to be president. 46% say only hillary clinton. 54% of americans say they oppose the idea of a border wall. and immigrants, deserve a chance. and 39% of americans say the candidate who can bring change, 83% of american voters who wanted the change went with donald trump. >> and alex, let me bring that to you. mexico has made it clear,
12:22 am
how does he bring that to his supporters? >> well, for too long, american voters have seen, they send people to washington with their five-point plan, and that's where they start. donald trump is the kind of guy, i want to buy this car, you want $50,000, i'll give you $10,000. i think the american people understand it's part of the process, and will give him slack as long as we move things in a different direction. but peter thiel gave a big speech in washington last week. he said, i don't think voters pull the lever to endorse a candidate's flaws. we're voting for trump because we judge the leadership of our country to have failed.
12:23 am
around. >> that's the big issue right now. washington is broken, someone has to fix it. donald trump, 26 electoral votes away from the presidency. out o. hello moto. snap on a jbl speaker. a projector. a camera that actually zooms. it's a phone you can change again and again and again. hello moto. get excited world. moto is here. the new moto z with motomods. only on verizon. i have asthma... of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways
12:24 am
that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo
12:25 am
hey, guys, welcome. you are joining abc news' digital coverage of election night 2016, in progress. >> l.z., native. i wonder if you think there's enough vote in detroit to make up for hillary clinton. >> one of the big things about detroit, it's fundamentally changed in terms of the residents. it's still 90% black, but a lot of the blacks are on the outskirts of the revitalization,
12:26 am
white. just walking around, you say there's a lot of white people here. >> and the state of nevada, where hillary clinton has been called the victor, that's a key state for hillary clinton. of course, she's got a long way to go, given the nature of the map at this point. at this point, we're calling her the projected winner in the state of nevada. would be a massive electoral prize for her. some indications, she may have a chance there. but it's still, it would be a reach given that it's traditionally a red state. >> and michigan, we have yet to call. i know you have some thoughts on that. we'll have that back in just a second. wisconsin as well. stay with us here.
12:27 am
a few seconds. tom: welcome back, everyone. 12:28 on this wednesday morning. new hampshire votes 2016. we are continuing to cover many close races in the state of new hampshire as well as those nationwide. let's take a look at where we stand at this hour in the u.s. senate race. still just 79% of the vote tabulated. kelly ayotte holds onto a to-point lead over maggie hassan. stephanie: and the race for governor now with 80% of the vote in. chris sununu holding on. but it is only by two points over colin van ostern. tom: let's listen in to jennifer horn, head of the gop in new hampshire. she is addressing supporters at a function where both sununu and
12:28 am
>> it's close. here's what we know in new hampshire. here what we know without a doubt. when republicans stand together, when we fight together, we win. and we know that, when republicans l when republicans laid on republican principle, when we leave on limited government, fiscal responsibility, equal opportunity for all, the entire community is lifted up. what we know as republicans is that it should not matter who you are or where you came from. it should not matter whether you are a man or a woman, gay or
12:29 am
teacher, a veteran. , when equal opportunity is given to all, the entire community is lifted up. that's what being a republican is all about. that is what we fight for every day. and those are the principles that are winning in new hampshire tonight. now some of these races remain pretty close. understanding is that mr. van ostern has gone home. i did not mean that as a joke. he has gone home. we are waiting for that race to be called. we know how late it is. but i've got to tell you, i feel really, really good about the corner office right now. we have not had --

12:39 am
you from the bottom of my heart. we are up be, we are confident, we want to make sure we do this the new hampshire way where we have every vote and because every vote matters, every person matters in this state. [applause] >> now that we may be gathering again for when we talk about victory for the governorship, victory in the united states senate, and victory up and down the ticket. on behalf of new hampshire and our country and this great state. it is great to be with you all tonight. [applause]
12:40 am
supporters, saying she feels good about the race, as did maggie hassan. they will not know about the final outcome until tomorrow. they're making sure every single vote counts. a rate that has closed dramatically. we will see where this goes. stephanie: echoing sentiments from sununu ayotte did to think the same group of supporters, saying he feels and strong heading into the night. giving knowledge to know you really don't have a clear answer in any of these racists. it has fluctuated in one way or the other of these long hours of the election night. a few hundred votes here a few
12:41 am
race this is across the board. we are not the only state. there are several others to close to call. tom: we will go back to nbc news programming right county. not a lot of votes left. >> leading in michigan, pennsylvania, and wisconsin? >> that's right. leading in three, he only needs to win one. >> and jim talked about the hispanic vote. so much talk about waking a sleeping giant, building the wall, about a deportation force, he woke another sleeping giant. and that's the uneducated white men in this country who heard someone who spoke to them. 49 points, the biggest record going back to 1980, an 11-point
12:42 am
>> and gender gaps the likes we've seen never before. 30-some points in some states. it's another place where you'll see a sense of being left out. if you have african-americans voting by 89% for clinton, and hispanic americans voting for her by 67%, and women voting for her, you have got this incredible divide that's not just a divide among groups of people who are going to feel very, very hostile to each other. >> and groups of people around the country and in washington as well. byron pitts? >> i'm confused at this moment. >> join the club.
12:43 am
i've been talking to them, they see it's very american, the underdog has won. it's a very american quality. and many of my friends of color and women, many times if you're a person of color, you're told if you get a good education, prepare yourself, you can be as successful as anyone else in america. in this case, you have a woman as on paper, and she lost to, forgive me, a white guy with a haircut. >> and tom llamas, you have the champion of working class america, a man who inherited an awful lot of money, parlayed that into success in reality tv and hotels, moved himself as far
12:44 am
imagine. >> a billionaire from manhattan, connecting with the midwest. his message resonated with these people so well, and he never adapted or changed his style. wore that suit, threw on the hat, sometimes if he was going into -- an area with a lot of hunting, he would throw on a camouflage make america great hat. that was the only jacket, played golf every sunday. but the message connected. >> and matthew dowd, he connected in a way, tom llamas is saying, people saw him as a truth- truth-teller, even though if you look at the nonpartisan examination of the claims he was
12:45 am
untruthful statements. >> well, his voters didn't take him literally, but took him seriously. things that many people laughed and said, he's not serious. but the bad things, he doesn't mean that. i think they've been frustrated at both political parties. this is not a reward for the republican party. they said, give us the biggest, brashest guy, he's voice we didn't have in years. give us that big, brash, in many ways bully, and he's going to go to washington and he's going to represent me. >> he's not there yet, but close. what's happening in wisconsin? >> there are still democrat votes to come in. dane county, home of madison,
12:46 am
democratic. still votes there and in milwaukee. but if you look overall at the state, trump has a three-point lead. and michigan, he's had a lead all night. we've been waiting on wayne county. which is detroit, 85% is in. so, they're starting to run out of democratic votes. >> and new hampshire? >> and new hampshire, it's tight. let's see where we are donald trump has expanded his 15-vote lead. now, 81% reporting, with a sizable lead. >> all the ballots, everything is going liberally.
12:47 am
passing. so, this very bifurcated result. >> and i want to bring this to terry, if donald trump is indeed elected, with a republican house, perhaps with a republican senate, he will be adopting the agenda they put on that's what paul ryan was saying all along. >> well, good luck, paul ryan, retaining your speakership. and the thing that is trump's ideology, he's not a liberal or a conservative, he's a nationalist. make america great again is a nationalist slogan. and what counts for the people
12:48 am
great again. seems like the people in new york city have more in common with people in frankfurt, london, hong kong, than with their cousins in albany. >> and you make a good point, because donald trump may win, that doesn't mean that paul ryan is in the clear here. remember, he has had that very, very tense relationship with donald trump. donald trump has called him weak, ineffective. donald trump made very clear his views about paul ryan when he made the announcement that he was no longer going to defend or campaign for donald trump.
12:49 am
tense for quite some time. >> but we don't have a winner yet. the race is not over. one slim path for hillary clinton. all eyes on wisconsin, michigan, and pennsylvania. donald trump still with the lead. more results when we come back. >> we'll be back in times
12:50 am
[burke] at farmers, we've seen almost everything, so we know how to cover almost anything. even a rodent ride-along. [dad] alright, buddy, don't forget anything! [kid] i won't, dad... [captain rod] happy tuesday morning! captain rod here. it's pretty hairy out on the interstate.traffic is on the eastside overpass. getting word of another collision. [burke] it happened. december 14th, 2015. and we covered it. talk to farmers. we know a thing or two because we've seen a thing or two.

12:53 am
boy, what a night it's been. unusual, surprising. just a day ago, no one would have predicted it. donald trump, 26 votes away from becoming president. he's leading, jonathan karl, in most of the states on the board. >> he sure is. the key ones, the industrial states in the midwest and pennsylvania. let's start with pennsylvania, 48%, 49%, and donald trump is winning in pennsylvania. >> just to underscore, that was considered safe territory by the clinton campaign. part of the safe, blue firewall. >> it's a state that hasn't gone republican since 1988. the clinton team did campaign hard there in the final days. barack obama campaigned there,
12:54 am
pennsylvania, with bruce springsteen, the clinton. they put some effort there in the end. michigan, donald trump still has the lead. now just 77% reporting. donald trump continues to lead in michigan, and in the state of wisconsin, here, this enduring lead, 85% of the vote in. and donald trump has a three-point lead. and wisconsin, a state that might have been pennsylvania. >> let's sit on that for a while. donald trump did not win the state of wisconsin in the primaries. he had the republican establishment against him. some of them came around, but scott walker, paul ryan against him. the talk radio network in the state against him. he was incredibly unpopular.
12:55 am
campaign with him in the final stretch, and trump cancelled the trip to wisconsin. >> went to minnesota instead. >> this may be the state that puts him over the top. >> matthew dowd. >> i can't -- the historical, unprecedented, we've said that from the beginning. i thought donald trump would win the republican primary based upon data. and then i said donald trump would lose the general election based upon data. but the data was wrong in the second half so far. even if hillary clinton pulls out a close victory in the final hours of this, something went majorly off in all of the expectations, everybody on both sides had. >> and i think it had to be more than secret trump voters, i didn't find anybody who wouldn't
12:56 am
that didn't tell me who they were voting for, but they were college educated women. who knows about the secret trump support. but there is something that the data and polls are missing. >> we do have, late deciders, this is interesting. when did you decide, last few days, last week. many decided earlier. but break it down to, did you decide last we if you decided in the last few days, trump outweighed clinton. >> we're coming up on 1:00 a.m. eastern. one state still voting. donald trump, 26 electoral votes away from the white house. hillary clinton has a small path, she's not giving up. we're not ready to call anything. the latest results, coming up.
12:57 am
right now. tom: welcome back to our commitment 2016 new hampshire vote coverage. we still have many races in the state of new hampshire that are undetermined from the top on down with the presidential race, as far as new hampshire voters are concerned, very much up in the air.
12:58 am
hassan. stephanie: this one also razor close. tom: taking a look at the gubernatorial race. chris sununu holding a lead over his opponentin holding a narrow edge over republican incumbent frank guinta. tom: this race has been called by the associated press in favor of the democrat annie kuster. she had 50% of the vote compared to jim lawrence. stephanie: look at the presidential race in new hampshire and this is 84% of the
12:59 am
math -- in. can you do the math? we're talking about thousands of votes making the difference. tom: it is all very close area where do we want to go from here? to josh and andy. gentlemen, take it away. josh: in the race for the white house. back to you. stephanie: going to wrap it up here on wmur but you can stay with us on it
1:00 am
it's 1:00 a.m. in the east. 10:00 p.m. in the west. and we have an amazing election night going on. donald trump has 244 of the 270 electoral votes he needs to united states. and hillary clinton has 215. the polls just closed in alaska. three electoral votes in alaska. but let's just go through the most consequential states, starting with new hampshire. put that up. and we're going to show where the votes are in the state of new hampshire.
1:01 am
donald trump holding on to a three-point lead. nevada, we've called for hillary clinton. and let's go to pennsylvania, wisconsin, and michigan. >> new hampshire, donald trump has a, hillary clinton now has a slight lead in the state of new hampshire. only four electoral votes, she has a slight lead. the first lead of the night we've seen in new hampshire. pennsylvania, 96% for donald trump, almost 50,000-vote lead over h michigan, donald trump continues to have a lead, with 77%. and about a 59,000-vote lead. the state of wisconsin, donald trump continues to lead 87% reporting, a three hi everybody. tom: we would like to welcome all of years where carol is about to address her supporters. she is locked in a close race
1:02 am
people in the back room and we have counted the jellybeans over and over again. at this moment, we feel very confident. [applause] >> thank you. we will wait until ap actually calls it. had and the numbers we have looked at, we feel confident. so thank you. thank you to everybody who has tom and worked so hard for this. it has been quite a journey as you know area i am very grateful and once to think my wonderful
1:03 am
energy in the campaign has been amazing and humbling. you know how i feel about all of you. only tell you again how much i love all of you and i think the voters for the confidence and forth over it. i spent two years making my case, talking to people about the issues we care about. it is too late for the long list through, but i think you have heard it enougme us. it is about service and working for the rest of us. so is everything as up again, we will be waiting for someone else to call it. if everything adds up again, i want to thank new hampshire for the great honor. tonight. thank you. -- good night. thank you.
1:04 am
she is thankful, she is feeling good, and she told her supporters that she is confident. tom: let us leave you now on wmur speech. one man, with a paper hillary clinton mask on top of his head. this was supposed to be a party. and i'm standing underneath this glass ceiling, that at this point i think a lot of people are wondering if in fact it will be shattered tonight. >> radio silence from clinton command? >> complete radio silence. but we're hearing from top democrats and clinton campaign donors saying the race is over.
1:05 am
worked for president obama in his campaign and the white house. take us inside the white house at this point. jon had the tweet from david plouffe, he was as certain as anyone that hillary clinton would win. it sure seemed that president obama believed it would be a victory as well. >> i t and it would be good for the democratic party to take some time and look at what happened. maybe we weren't listening well enough to those voters. she clearly didn't perform as well as she needed to with african-americans, hispanics, even women. and he overperformed with white men. so, we have to understand what happened here, and also understand that white men used
1:06 am
coalition. but we've completely lost them here. >> stephanie, one of the things we talked about, we saw in the primaries, bernie sanders out of nowhere to give hillary clinton a real fight for the nomination. but a lot of hollowing out of the democratic >> this has been troubling, we're very confused, because the numbers were just so wrong. just all across the country. i was in florida stumping for hillary clinton. i saw people coming out to the polls, they wanted to make sure their votes were in the bank for hillary clinton. i don't know if there was some
1:07 am
regrouping to do as a party. >> and bill kristol, donald trump was talking about during the primaries, maybe this was a hostile takeover of the republican party. maybe on the verge of winning after that hostile takeover. >> and i think matthew dowd made the point, but it's extraordinary that donald trump was not a politician military officer. the upset in the republican party was striking, they normally nominate the next in line, a former vice president, former governor, and to win an upset like that, we're all going to be underestimating the impact of this. you don't have an anomaly of this magnitude, and things go
1:08 am
i don't buy that. i don't know that paul ryan will be speaker of the house, i hope donald trump reaches across the aisle, and across country, because it's a divided country, whichever one won. i hope there's a message of unity. but what he chooses to do, he doesn't agree with paul ryan on the heart of the republican agenda, a different view of immigration, trade, is he going to gohe policies he's talked about? we're in more uncharted waters than we even think. >> alex? >> one thing it makes you think, president obama's personal popularity is separate from where he's left the nation. this is a rejection of continuity. president obama said at the convention, hillary clinton is continuity. he campaigned for her strongly. and voters sent a powerful message there.
1:09 am
this isn't left/right anymore. this is old/new. top-down washington and government has failed this country, so we're going to blow it all up. that's part of the big message tonight. >> people were saying, we hate those charted waters. we know where that chart goes, and it's not working for me. >> yup. >> so, what ironic in a way. what trump kept saying about african-americans, if not directly to them was, what do you have to lose? they felt there was a lot to lose. close to 90% of them voted for hillary clinton. but trump voters, that's exactly right. what do i have to lose? >> and this is what i'm trying
1:10 am
my question, what are they going to get? what is donald trump going to do for these voters who have now put their faith in him? >> he's going to attack nafta, the coun companies that take jobs out of american. we haven't mentioned this yet, but evangelical voters, he didn't prove that he loved god more than his rivals, we saw the bible come out but not again, but he got the vote because of the supreme court. >> to pick up on the point that
1:11 am
moran, he says he's going to tear up trade deals, and nato. he's been critical of the operation in mosul and the iran deal. how does the world react? >> in shock. he's about to take over the united states, in this personalized and charismatic power. the president is an office with a great deal of power for a person who knows how to pick it up and use it. if there's one thing he's demonst demonstrated, he's that guy. >> and martha, you questioned donald trump closely on this during the debates. but right now, we have americans
1:12 am
>> yes, and his understanding of military policy and civilian/military divide, i don't know that he really has a plan for what he's going to do there. he has general mike flynn with him, he'll quickly tell you he has 200 admirals and generals backing him. i think mike flynn has been a huge influence on him. i was also looking back at an interview tim kaine gave. tim kaine has aon marine corps. he was asked, if donald trump is democratically elected, and your son is serving as a marine, you wouldn't trust his life under that commander-in-chief, and kaine said, i wouldn't. that's an extreme thing to say. the people in the military defend the constitution. that's what they do. >> and let's take one more look
1:13 am
>> i've been looking, so, new hampshire, hillary clinton seems to have a lead. she's maintaining with 85% in. but new hampshire is only four electoral votes. go down to pennsylvania, 20 electoral votes. solidly, democrat for a long time. and donald trump continues to have a considerable lead, with 97% reporting. further west to michigan, donald trump it's narrowed. 87% reporting. wisconsin, 87% reporting, and donald trump has a three percentage point lead. >> needs to win only one of the three states. and let's look at minnesota, as we keep an eye on the trump headquarters in the new york hilton right now. i'm sorry, clinton.
1:14 am
three-point lead, the thought that minnesota is even close is not something that was anticipated. >> i want to go back to the first time i really met donald trump, at the iowa state fair. he was really just coming on the scene in a big way. flew the helicopter in, trump on the side. the people at the iowa state fair couldn't get enough of him. we were walking around, seeing if anyone suprt clinton there, and couldn't find anybody. and donald trump, bringing kids on his held capio helicopter. he was charming them. >> i grew up in upstate new york, you go home, and you see trump/pence signs everywhere. we go back to the bernie sanders comparison, both had a message
1:15 am
country. when you say make america great again, they were talking for people who might be a high school graduate, may not have had an opportunity to go to college. which is a huge issue, and they wanted the opportunity, too. and think that, bernie sanders may cringe at the notion that some of his supporters went to donald trump, but it was something that tapped into. and i think there will be an autopsy in the democratic party about whether hillary clinton got that message across that she could do something, too. >> and this is from bucks county, an obama voter, he said, i've never voted republican, but i'm voting for trump this year.
1:16 am
she wanted to be a politician her whole career. staying in a marriage for that, that bothers me a little bit. does anything bother you about donald trump? they're both who bihorrible, bu going with trump. >> i want to go outside to t.j. holmes in times square. tell us about the crowd, what you're s shocked and confused, same here in times square. something i've never heard before is quiet. it's been quiet in times square this evening as the results have popped up on the screen behind me. it's overwhelmingly a pro-hillary crowd. and they've been shocked. we set up this facebook booth, and this instagram oval office.
1:17 am
office, the pro-hillary crowd, they've been in absolute shock. the place has gone quiet. seven days a week, 24 hours a day, times square, you hear noise. you're not hearing much of anything. ayla, hello, you have a smile on your face. >> considering the fact that disappointed. but it's not shocking. i love in boca raton, very pro-trump. >> are you holding out hope? >> it sucks, but it is what it is. >> thank you so much. and if you want to hear from more voters, you're welcome to,
1:18 am
they're hiding, but got a little bit more vocal. you hear, let me go ahead and toss it back to you right now, george. but the place has gone quiet this evening, something i never thought you would hear about times square on an election night. >> and we're still waiting for crucial battleground state results coming in. votes away from the white house. we'll be right back. vo: introducing the new motoz droid with moto mods, exclusively on verizon. boom! vo: transform your phone in a snap. with the only next gen network that lets you get the most out of it, because verizon lte advanced delivers 50% faster peak speeds in 450 cities, coast to coast. buy a motoz droid and get another one free and $300 back. and get 20 gigs of data with no surprise overages,

1:22 am
and we're back now, coming up on 1:30 on the east coast, 10:30 p.m. on the west coast. and donald trump has 244 out of 270, to 215 for hillary clinn. in michigan, and pennsylvania. and we also have some news out of pennsylvania. pat toomey has won defeating
1:23 am
>> he didn't reveal who he was going to vote for until the end. you have to look at this day for the republican party, because outside of what happened with donald trump is having an unbelievable day. holding on to the house, losing very few seats. look at the senate races. they are winning indiana, florida, wisconsin, now they've won pennsylvania. new hampshire is very close. hampshire, and blunt is ahead in missouri. will keep control of the senate. the question that bill kristol raised, what does the republican party stand for? because they ran on a very different agenda than donald trump. >> well, the democratic party needs to have the same condition. if this continues, donald trump
1:24 am
republicans take over the senate, and republicans suffer very few losses. everyone thought it was the end of the republican party 30, 60 days ago. the democratic party has to realize, 34% of the electorate rejected the democratic party. >> and hillary clinton did >> it was the effort to get nonwhites, hispanic, african-american voters. and this is what president obama did in 2008 and 2012. look what she did tonight, at least so far into the evening. ten points, she lost, to what obama was able to perform just four days ago. donald trump gained 11 points
1:25 am
country. >> we're still waiting detroit, milwaukee, philadelphia, but is one of the stories tonight going to be that african-americans, who came out in record numbers for barack obama, did not have the same enthusiasm for hillary clinton? >> well, i don't think anybody expected they would have the same level of but there's a big difference between fighting to win and being a leader. when you're a candidate it's great to have a winning strategy. but i don't think anybody up there that's a supporter of trump or a republican can say one policy that he'll actually do to keep any of the promises that he's made. not one thing.
1:26 am
going to build the wall. we don't know how he will bring jobs back. so, i hope that will be a story that will be filled in. >> that will be a challenge for him. still 26 electoral votes short of what he needs right now. 244 to 215 for hillary clinton. we'll be right back. remember 2007? smartphones? o m g ten years later, nothing's really changed. it's time to snap out of it. hello moto. snap on a jbl speaker. a projector. a camera that actually zooms. it's a phone you can change again and again and again. hello moto. get excited world. moto is here. the new moto z with motomods.

welcome back to abc news coverage of election night 2016. here again, george stephanopoulos. >> 1:30 a.m. on the east coast, 10:30 p.m. on the west coast. trump with 244, clinton with 215. and hillary clinton holding on to a two-point lead in minnesota. the state of michigan, donald trump holding on to the lead, about 70,000 votes. 16 electoral votes. donald trump leading the state of michigan. new hampshire, only four electoral votes.
1:31 am
into the lead by about 4,000 votes. state of pennsylvania, this is a big one. 20 electoral votes. and donald trump ahead, 49% to 48%. that would get him just about there. 20 electoral votes in the state of pennsylvania alone. and up by about 60,000 votes. tom llamas, take us inside the trump high command. >> they're excited, and election for donald trump. there's a little bit of frustration, because they feel they have won this race. that being said, donald trump got a promising sign, mary bruce reports that paul ryan
1:32 am
speaker ryan up close. what do you think is going through his mind? hope you heard the question. go ahead. >> george, we know that speaker ryan did have that conversation with donald trump, this is clearly a seeing. donald trump and paul ryan have had this very contentious relationship throughout the election. we've seen paul ryan over the last few days, saying he'd be willing to campaign with donald trump but it never ended up happening. we've heard paul ryan saying donald trump's name, the t-word, something he was reluctant to do throughout much of the campaign.
1:33 am
making these overtures to donald trump, the healing process going forward if donald trump does in fact win the presidency. >> and we know paul ryan had a distaste for a lot of the language he saw, against the muslim ban. very strongly for free trade agreements. i can movement to get rid of the trade agreements. >> well, it's also international affairs, paul ryan favors a more aggressive u.s. foreign policy. that's not donald trump. they disagree across the board.
1:34 am
working together. >> a couple of big exceptions, perhaps on social issues, they could probably agree on the supreme court. and cokie, repealing obama care, replacing it with something else. and more tax cuts to promote economic growth. >> absolutely. and paul ryan has this whole better way that he talks about of a whole host he wants to see done. i'm not sure that donald trump will oppose him on any of that. one place they could have an argument on is spending. and the question of infrastructure. think about that. we do have a crumbling infrastructure. airports are terrible, and this
1:35 am
college degree to build roads, airports, train stations, schools, hospitals. this may be a place where trump can deliver to people what he's talking about, and republicans in congress may have to swallow hard and add to the deficit. >> and he'll get democratic votes for that as well. >> absolutely. lots of democratic votes. >> and the muslim ban, the trade deals, promising hitting this hard, the idea that in his first few weeks in office, he would move to get rid of obama care completely. >> and we haven't talked about that tonight, but he hammered home those premiums that were rising in the final weeks of this campaign. every time he mentioned that, every state he would go to, the numbers would get higher and higher, and the crowds would cheer when he said he would
1:36 am
obama care affected as well. >> and let's go to amy robach, what do you got? >> a lot of impatient people here, ready for the race to be called. and susan, with me, you supported trump. are you surprised at all by tonight's results? >> not at all. >> not even a little bit? >> no. >> why do you pollsters got it wrong? >> it's similar to when reagan got elected. there's a silent majority that will vote what their heart says. >> trump said tonight would be brexit times 50. looks like he may have been correct. what are you seeing tonight in this room? >> it's exciting, seeing
1:37 am
in the room. >> this has been a negative campaign, we have a divided america. you see the signs, women for trump. but that's been an issue, there's been a big gender gap for who came out for whom. why, as a woman, did you vote for trump? >> i believe in what he says. do i believe in the way he not really. i don't believe in clinton at all. she proved she was pretty much disreputable. she's been in the government 30 years, has made a lot of money off being in the government. there's something wrong with that. you make it in the private sector, i'm happy for you. >> was it a vote against hillary rather than for trump?
1:38 am
have the possibilities i had when i grew up. >> and what do you think about how he speaks to women and minorities change? >> yes, absolutely. i want to see what he's going to do. >> are you going to go to bed tonight? >> not until they call it. a sleep this evening? >> i'm not sure, but i'm pretty sure michigan will put him over. >> susan says michigan will go for trump. >> and tom llamas, we're hearing from trump's campaign manager. >> tweeting this out, things that were true. undercover trump vote. mike pence for vp.
1:39 am
>> and congratulations coming in from overseas? >> high fives coming from the kremlin. putin is a big winner, and it will remain an open and perhaps unanswered question how much the russian government was mucking around in the election. but putin will have a freer hand in ukraine, and eastern europe. he's a person trying restoration of nationalism. 27 years ago today, the berlin wall fell, opening up borders to be much more porous, and shrinking russian power. and today, the guy who will build a wall won.
1:40 am
>> we were just over in france, talking to the french politicians about donald trump, and there is some support over there. but when you look at the world and we wake up tomorrow, there will be a lot of reaction from around the world, and what it means for everybody. will he pull troops out? and the other thing, i don't think any of us really know. >> that's the thing, the point i tom llamas, i'll bring it to you first. we know donald trump started to get security briefings, the same that hillary clinton received. the conclusion of 17 of our national security agencies that russia was behind the hack of the e-mails. he went out day after day and said, i just don't believe it. >> not only did he say that, he
1:41 am
he said it over and over again, and crowds loved it. even when marco rubio said, it w wasn't a good idea that republicans were promoting this. donald trump said he was joking, but he at one point endorsed the leaks. and when the embarrassing e-mails showed some voters, maybe he's got a point, maybe he believed that. >> but 17 professional intelligence agency people, giving him the facts. >> and he says he knows more than the generals in iraq.
1:42 am
time. he said the generals were reduced to rubble, but came back and said it's the civilians, not the military. >> and how could the intelligence agencies be wrong, but they told us we had weapons of mass destruction in iraq. and the iraq war became so incredibly unpopular. >> absolutely, we intelligence agencies had been wrong in iraq. >> we're waiting for the results in michigan, wisconsin, and pennsylvania. but charlie, this is something we've talked about a bit tonight. american people, skeptical of everyone. intelligence agencies, business leaders, the press, politicians, leaders in washington. this is a repudiation of all of it. >> it certainly is.
1:43 am
in the campaign rallies, whipping on the press. you still have some of the marks. >> every single day. >> but i'm gobsmacked, what brings me up short, we don't know, we have no idea what waters we're in. we're in uncharted waters, because he really hasn't given much signal as to what he will do. he says i'm going to to do it. bill, bless your heart, you think he may come out with a conciliatory statement. but every time he's spoken, it's all about him. it is about me. that's basically what it comes down to when he gives a speech. and i have a feeling he's going to take this very personally, and not be very conciliatory. and that worries me. and the other thing, the other thing, words matter.
1:44 am
when you start your campaign calling mexican immigrants rapists and murders, insult hispan hispanics, saying he's going to deport all 11 million. he got 29% of the hispanic vote in this country. that's just amazing to me. and needless to say, his comments about women, and his than expected. >> and this is pretty telling, charlie. if you break down that question about the comments that were made on access hollywood bus. trump voters were asked, trump's treatment of women, do they bother you? and the majority of trump voters, 54% said not much, not at all.
1:45 am
dads with their children, the ads played with trump's comments and the children listening and watching, and what parents will say on the day after. 54% say it will not matter that much. >> they said it didn't care, it's in the past, he's going forward. >> but tom llamas told us that donald trump went upstairs in trump tower to talk to lot of people said, what was that speech? and she spoke about cutting down on bullying, to get at, among the criticisms of donald trump, what he's done on twitter, the comments made about women. that was perhaps the first sign they have to do some healing. >> i think we have a sense of what a potential trump white house would look like.
1:46 am
propositionals. jeb bush got four delegates, spent $110 million. he goes into the general election, the most massive infrastructure of hillary clinton, 50 times more headquarters, outspent donald trump 5 to one. won all the debates, and he's a time of large tanker ships, and donald trump will go into the white house thinking, i did this. >> and people voted for him. it's not just him. there are millions of americans who voted for donald trump. this country does rest on the consent of the governed. you may disagree with them, but
1:47 am
him. they believe it's about them. and i think we have to keep that very firmly in mind. >> and this is why i keep coming back to it. i think you're exactly right. the question is, what is he going to do for them? >> and on that point, as i look around, i think there's a lot of confusion, people are asking, what happened tonight. i've been with donald trump for 500 days. my question is, tomorrow? and i don't think anybody but donald trump knows what he'll do. he'll say one thing, and do something else. he'll make a promise and go back on it. if he does have the senate and house, and he's the president, he can do whatever he wants to do. and we just don't know until he starts in office. >> governing is a serious business. you can't promise one thing and
1:48 am
i hate to sound like an establishment, sober boring, it's important to get policies right. there's a world order that has not failed for 70 years. and this country hasn't failed so much either. a lot of good things have happened over the last 30, 40 years. let me just finish this. if trump can change, i'm hoping he changes. if he has the attitude t i primaries, in the general election, i can keep doing this for four years, it will be bad for the country. i think it will not work and will end up badly. >> he said, i can fix this country for one term. i may not have to run for re-election. >> alex? >> remember the donald trump you
1:49 am
the mexican president, after winning florida, very conciliatory. and martha, your point that this is not just an american phenomenon. it's a global phenomenon. everywhere, people think those guys who think they're better than us, they've failed us. so, the first thing he has to do is make disruption safe, because it isn't working very well. it's time to get a lot of money and power out of washington and into the people's hands. if he can help the republican party or even the democrats -- >> talking about this globally, the trump movement would have its own party in europe.
1:50 am
broken the republican party is. how much does winning heal wounds and how much is the pressure from the conservative part of the party to go to donald trump and say, you have never run as a particularly conservative >> well, the supreme court pick, that will be one of the first orders of business. all eyes on wisconsin, michigan, and pennsylvania. we're live with the latest results when we come back. okay google, show me korean restaurants in boulder. google assistant: i found a few places. vo: the new pixel, phone by google. exclusively on verizon. the only next gen network that lets you get the most out of it. how is this possible? vo: because verizon lte advanced

it's 11:00 p.m. on the west coast, and donald trump is closing in on wma biggest upset in american political history. 244 electoral votes to 215 for hillary clinton. he needs the electoral votes in gray states, starting with pennsylvania. >> pennsylvania, one of the many shockers of the night. 97% of the vote in. and as you see, he has a solid lead, 75,000-vote lead. and if you look at where the
1:55 am
watching allegheny county, that's pittsburgh. and philadelphia, if you look at philadelphia, 99% in philadelphia. even in the counties around philadelphia, as you look, 98%, 99%, 100% of the counties. not a lot of obviously democratic votes in the state of pennsylvania. if h president trump. >> and michigan, looking the same, a little bit closer than it was. >> but trump continues to hold the lead in michigan. the other one, the more likely, wisconsin, he continues to have a very enduring lead in wisconsin. 90% of the vote in, and he still has a three-point lead in wisconsin. >> and any one is enough. the state of arizona, still hanging out there in the west,
1:56 am
>> he sure does. if you go to the possibilities board, what would hillary clinton have to do. arizona, trump has a solid lead. give her new hampshire, she has to win all the remaining states. if she wins michigan, doesn't get 270, michigan and pennsylvania, 268. needs to win new hampshire, michigan, pennsylvania, and wisconsin. >> and is behind in all but hampshire. our election coverage will continue. dot kot donald trump has 244 electoral votes. 215 for hillary clinton. donald trump is closing in on
