6:30 pm
this is a small state but maybe a telling state in the scheme of things. this had been leaning in hillary clinton's column for the summer, donald trump did close the gap in the closing days. with this, this is a small state that if it goes for trump could trigger a tie at least the number of combinations go up. that's why this is one of the key states that we're watching. another the donald trump is watch something the state of pennsylvania. here donald trump has closed the before. it is called fool's gold for republicans. it looks like they can win and what happens time after time they are wiped out. they cannot make up the difference when you watch the returns come in and they close at 8:00 tonight. philadelphia will weigh in in a big way for hillary clinton and then the rest of the state, pittsburgh and western and central pennsylvania will deliver. what will the mix be. this is one of the states that
6:31 pm
chance of winning w this we have interesting developments in the exit poll so far. what we're find something that the late deciders who did not, they broke fairly evenly for hillary clinton and donald trump. with this you saw a spike in turn out for gary johnson. checking in at 8% and what we typically see. you have more than half of all voters voting for donald trump and hillary clinton. and having casting the vote for that candidate. what you have are voters holding their nose and they have made their decision and it will depend not just of course in new hampshire and pennsylvania but where they will close at 7:00 in our neck of the woods. and in the western panhandle. we may have an idea where this is going by 9:00 or 10:00. >> we'll see you in a few minutes, thank you. >> and joel waldman is covering
6:32 pm

conference from the commander-in-chief. >> i think we'll do a good job. >> we're told that hillary clinton has two speeches prepared. the democratic nominee delivering her final remarks under a real glass ceiling n new york, joel waldman. let's go to caroline shively reporting,. >> reporter: they were making the final pitches last night. now the fate the american people. >> after a campaign season election day has arrived. donald trump casting his ballot in the morning near his home in new york city. >> the republican nominee was acompanied by his wife, daughter and her husband trump's running mate casting his vote and the governor was the final nominee on either ticket to cast a
6:34 pm
>> and trump filed a challenge in nevada alleging violations a judge rejected the request for an order to be issued over the concerns that the hours were extended to accommodate the long lines, they brought a lawsuit that founded like a good one. we have to keep the system honest, the world waits to see if they concede, contest or flames victory in the election. at trump we're watching the senate race here in florida with patrick murphy and marco rubio. we'll start with evan axelbank at the marco rubio campaign in miami. evan? >> and just eight months ago he planned to be the one on the stage. now here he is in the airport hilton here in the ball room
6:35 pm
in. his campaign i spoke with a member of the staff they can do that. over the last 53 polls over rub reason and patrick murphy. marco rubio has led in 48 of those 53 polls. the average is just over 3 points and he has a chance to hang on but there is a reason that we count the >> and rising star. he and murray sparred over his senate attendance record during the campaign. >> and if he should be and we
6:36 pm
>> and he would be serving a and for anything. >> and in 2018. it is my, as i said my desire and plan to be a senator for the next six years and go down that's one of the most successful and impactful senators that florida had. >> remember back in june marco rubio went back on his pledge to be not win and maintainch mc mcconnell from kentucky said that you know we need to you hold on to our majority. he came back into the race he thought to have a better chance against murphy than the other contenders. now he is hoping to make good on that promise to mcconnell to help the party keep their senate majority.
6:37 pm
us, let's go to aaron mesmer who is in palm beach gardens where patrick murphy will be watching the results come in. >> and it is optimism is what we're hearing. >> and he has to feel that way difference the endorsements and the he has to know and a battle and that has been the case since senator marco rubio entered the race back in every vote that he can get and he spent the day today making one last pitch here. he is trying to focus op the issues. they are familiar with the ads. and one thing murphy said he is
6:38 pm
breaking through the negativity. people see through that. we're feeling good about the chances this evening. >> although most of the polls have marco rubio ahead by a few to several points ahead of patrick murphy. murphy said ther a show him ahead or very close and that, at this point, is what he has to be hoping for. now it is a matter of wait and see. wait and see how they shake out. >> live in west palm beach. mystery is which party will control the republican dominated senate. >> we want to go to craig patrick to tell us more about
6:39 pm
advantage republicans control the chamber. democrats have to defend 10 and the republicans have to defend 24. if the democrats gain four seats with the win they would control the united states senate. we think we know that are you going to have a democratic gain in illinois. tam tammy duck worth will mark kirk. go to wisconsin you have the return of russ finegold. he has built in advantage and name recognition. they are tightened. we are scoring this one at a likely gain with ron johnson being the victor. that's plus two against four gained seats by the democrats. where else do you go. you look at pennsylvania. here is another example you have
6:40 pm
mcginty and it is leaning in favor of mcgintw. that's democrats plus three. we outlined three where they have three of the four needed at least you add in a close race in missouri and one in nevada that could go either way. new hampshire and kelly ayotte in trouble. one of those four states, they could; all probability, gain control of the united states senate if hillary clinton wins. if she loses they will gain another but the map favors democrats to six seats based on the protections. that's not the case in the house. this very to pick up 35 at best a dozen to 20. >> craig, thank you very much,

one of the most controversial amendments on a amendment on the battle is use of medical marijuana. polls show that it will pass and do they understand how the law would work. we have more with a look at the pros and cons. >> it is the inability to implement a low on the books that has marijuana support. and the state has dragged its feet in setting up the aspect of
6:44 pm
champions by people, they want to improve the quality of life. it will make it available and cancer and hiv and aids and als, they would have to have a issued and where the people take their card to get that. supporters say many doctors support the use. and 24 states have a similar law and in those states the rates have fallen. overdoses have fallen and work place absences have fallen. >> they say there is no proof that children are abusing the marijuana. but this is the flip side a lot
6:45 pm
saying there is no evidence showing that it helps treat illnesses. and the chief's association against it. the childrens are there are no guidelines for enforcement and heat to an increase in impaired driving and the amendment allows forms of marijuana which children could mistake for candy. now it needs 60% support to pass. if you remember a similar amendment was show of that 58%. a poll of 800 voters will pass and 74% support. we'll know if that holds true. kelly, thank you very much, chris. a live look tonight at the clinton camps. they are both in new york city it's not just america watching the race either. >> the impact of the election

6:56 pm
getting some numbers. we would like to get some final thoughts from craig. the polls closed here at 7:00 t is all about florida but donald trump would need more than florida to stand a chance to win here and pull off a upset. and leaning in the column and with that much of the focus has been on the state of michigan. the states will come in quickly here over the next couple of hours. keep an eye on michigan. it will be later. all the poll does not cse this has been a democratic state reliably it has not voted for republican in a race since 1988 with the president bush but the polls are tough. you don't have early voting. we don't know which way the state is trending, we don't have the data to go off. that's something to keep an eye on and an unusually important state. what very some interesting
6:57 pm
polling. it is a split decision across most of the nation. you have roughly half of the voters holding their nose behind the candidates that they pick. a lot of people are upset with the candidates on both sides of the aisle here w this, hillary clinton has a slight edge when asked who is more presidential, more prepared to lead. donald trump has the lead on the top issue who would best handle the economy. long night but we'll get the best idea which way the election is trending now in just a couple of minutes. and of course the polls closing at 7:00. western panhandle at 8:00. we'll not have a call until 8:00. >> mark and kelly, could be later than that, too. >> all right thank you. >> we're the election headquarters tonight with the results soon. and and the app on the phone, our
