7:04 am
more. honestly the president is the one that's challenging us to make sure we have the schedule ready and ready to go. >> reporter: but as the president makes rae campil, he'n polls and facing growing questions about his business dealings. a "new york times" report painting a picture of a president who once promised to drain the swamp reportedly turning his own hotels and resorts into the beltway's new back rooms. abc news has not verified documents, but the report showing more than 200 companies, groups and foreign governments patronizing trump's properties at a time when his personal empire was struggling financially. meanwhile the president's rival, joe biden is leading by 12 points nationally according to our latest abc news/"washington post" poll. biden still dodging questions about whether he'll pack the supreme court by adding more justices to the bench. >> the only court packing going on right now is going on with republicans packing the court now. it's not constitutional what they're doing. >> come on, joe. the americaneoservig ht answer.
7:05 am
>> reporter: in that latest abc news/"washington post" poll 58% of registered voters disapprove of the president's handling of the pandemic. the economy is still a bright spot for president trump. the majority of voters approve of his handling on that front. when you compare it to the pandemic, twice as many registered voters say the economy is their single most important issue. whit? >> rachel scott, thank you. we move to the senate beginning confirmation hearings tomorrow for president trump's nominee to replace ruth bader ginsburg on the supreme court. federal judge amy coney barrett selection taking center stage again. abc's alex presha joins us with more from the sport. -- supreme court. alex, good morning to you. da of hea senator republicans trying to squeeze in this confirmation of judge amy coney barrett with just 23 days now before the election, and this is during a pandemic. so there will be ppe stations
7:06 am
and a limit on the number of folks allowed inside that hearing room, and now we know that these hearings will be at least partially virtual. that's because two members of tested positive for the virus, senators mike lee and thom tillis. then you have chuck grassley and then you have other senators like chuck grassley and lindsey graham what have refused to get tested. all members have the option of appearing in person or row motely -- remotely. notably graham as the chair will be there in person. expect fireworks on tuesday when senators have their first chance to question judge barrett. now this will be hotly contested. democrats don't have the outright numbers to block her confirmation, but expect questions from them on her stances from roe v. wade and also the affordable care act. democratic senator dick durbin detailing his playbook. >> we're going to focus on the issues that explain her philosophy and what she will brintohe supreme court we will come to understand amy coney barrett better. we'll be able to anticipate what she'll do in the court, what changes she'll make in this country.
7:07 am
>> reporter: now, the merrick garland situation still front of mind for many democrats when republicans refused to take up obama's nominee. then also for republicans, they still remember the contentious hearings for justice brett kavanaugh. guys? >> so many strong feelings on both sides. alex presha, thank you very much. for more on all of this, let's bring in our chief white house correspondent jonathan karl, author of the excellent new book, "front row at the trump show." jon, good morning. let's start with these confirmation hearings coming up. do they carry potential political benefit for the president because they could change the subject away from the pandemic? >> anything that does that, dan, is welcomed by the trump campaign. he needs something else, some other story. they welcome these hearings. the bottom line is the main story, the story of the moment, is the pandemic. the outbreak at the white house and the outbreak across much of the country where several states are experiencing record highs in terms of coronavirus infections and also hospitalizations.
7:08 am
the death rate rising. there's really no distracting from that, even a battle over a supreme court pick. >> as we mentioned at the top of the show, our new poll has the president down by 12 points in the presidential race. is there any precedent for a presidential candidate coming back from this deficit so close to an election? >> well, sort of. four years ago. there was an abc poll in the middle of october that actually had hillary clinton up 12 points, but it was different because that was one poll. the rest of the polls were not as wide as this. we've had several polls that show double digit leads for joe biden. the other thing that's different this time around is there's much much more quality state polling in the battleground states. there's not a single one of the top dozen battleground states where donald trump has held a consistent lead, not one. >> let me ask a question about joe biden. he keeps dodging questions about e pre urt. would support packing we saw this in rachel scott's
7:09 am
piece. is this issue a potential liability for him? >> i think it is, dan. it's not just that he won't answer the question. it's the clumsy way in which he says he won't answer the question. he said in an interview yesterday asked directly don't the people have the right to know, he said, no, voters don't have a right to know where he stands on this. he also said a couple of days ago that he will give an answer on this after the election. it's very strange. this is a major issue. this is not a trivial issue. he's saying he won't tell voters where he stands until after they have voted. i don't think it's helpful. >> jon, thank you for your analysis. always great to see you. i want to remind everybody, don't forget to tune into "this week." jon will be hosting. he's got an exclusive interview with president trump's son eric on the heels of an explosive "new york times" story about the president's mixing of public and private business. plus, jon will go one-on-one with the co-chair of the biden
7:10 am
campaign, congressman cedric richmond. that's all coming up on "this week" later this morning, and don't forget our town hall with joe biden. it's called "vice president and the people:a special edition of "20/20."" that's on thursday, october 15th, at 8:00 eastern on abc. eva over to you. now to the deadly shooting during duly demonstrations in colorado. cameras capturing the confrontation. janai has more. good morning, janai. >> reporter: good morning, eva. police say they recovered two guns and a can of mace. witnesses say the victim was shot at point blank range. the suspect believed to be a private security guard hired by a local news station. this morning, a suspect is in custody after dueling protests in denver turned deadly. supporters of local police and counter-protesters gathered in the early afternoon. as those mostly peaceful events came to a close, shots rang out. this photograph appears to show
7:11 am
the victim spraying a substance directly at the armed man moments before he opened fire. in this video, capturing the contentious moments right before the gunshot. you can see demonstrators from both sides arguing. one of the men seen here moves out of view of the camera, and seconds later, gunfire rings out. the man falling to the ground, later dying at the hospital. our affiliate kmgh's camera picks up shortly after. three individuals lying on the ground. the two to the right have been confirmed as a producer and private security guard from denver local news station, 9 news. >> a verbal altercation that transpired. firearm was discharged. the individual was shot and later pronounced deceased. >> reporter: both the producer and security guard were taken into custody. 9 news releasing this update overnight. it has been the practice of 9 news for a number of months to
7:12 am
hire private security to accompany staff at protests. the producer who works in the investigative unit was not involved in the incident. the producer is no longer in police custody and not a suspect. officials say the security guard has no ties to any group. >> we don't want any erroneous information going out, any speculation. that's really what hurts us and that's what gets everybody angry and motivated to commit more violence, and that's what we're trying to prevent. >> reporter: and police say they are investigating the shooting as a homicide. thus far no charges have been filed against the suspected shooter, guys. >> still a lot of questions about what led up to that shooting. janai, thank you. we move now to the latest on the pandemic. 30 states plus washington, d.c. reporting daily increases in cases as deaths are rising in a dozen states plus puerto rico. abc's trevor ault joins us now with more. trevor, good morning. >> reporter: whit, good morning. this has not been a good week for most of the united states in the fight against the virus. ten states hit record high new cases. 11 had record hospitalizations,
7:13 am
and two states hit record high deaths and that's why some health experts warn things could only get worse as the weather continues to cool down. this morning as the president claims covid-19 is disappearing, the numbers nationwide do not align with that assessment. the u.s. with three straight days of 50,000 plus cases for the first time since august with hospitalizations rising in 34 states. >> one theme has emerged taking care of these patients and that is the unfairness of this disease. >> reporter: the minnesota health department announcing nine cases tied to a trump rally last month with two people hospitalized. next door, wisconsin is enduring the worst outbreak in the nation with its positivity rate at 17.6%, far higher than neighboring illinois. >> the problem is not everybody is on the same page and some states are open. some are closed. it doesn't make any sense. >> reporter: doctors under constant strain, turning to innovative techniques in treatments. in florida, umbilical cord stem
7:14 am
cells are being used to treat patients appearancing li experi life-threatening respiratory distress. some covid patients are haunted by lingering symptoms months after being treated for the virus. >> how does it feel to be going home? >> reporter: 9/11 first responder robert morrero was released from the hospital in may, but now struggles with memory issues, fatigue and debilitating pain. >> one of the biggest questions i have is, am i going to stay like this? >> reporter: but across the country, americans continue to step up. single mother lunisa guzman lost her life to the virus leaving two young adopted children behind. now her two adult daughters katherine and jennifer are raising those kids as their own. >> she wouldn't have it any other way. i want them to remember that no matter what, that even though mommy is not here, we will always be. >> reporter: and much like the rest of the country here in new york, officials are monitoring hot spot areas.
7:15 am
what governor cuomo calls four red zone counties that are accounting for nearly a fifth of the state's new cases despite having less than 3% of the population. dan? >> trevor ault, thank you very much. weather now and the aftermath of delta, the second hurricane to hit louisiana in six weeks. rob is right there no new orleans this morning where many evacuees went for safety. rob, good morning to you. >> reporter: yeah, dan. more than 5,000 evacuees from hurricane laura six weeks ago. many of them are staying in hotels right here on canal street, and another hurricane came through. they know it'll be even longer until they can go back home. o hrine delutas this morning the remnants of hurricane delta bringing rain and damaging wind well inland as it spins its way northeast. falling trees taking out power lines and crashing into homes. >> the roof just, boom, fell. >> reporter: in georgia the atlanta fire department
7:16 am
responding to more than a dozen calls for vehicles stuck in flood waters. in southwest louisiana people there now left to pick up the pieces once again. hurricane delta bringing a demoralizing blow to the city of lake charles, just six weeks after category 4 hurricane laura struck in nearly the same spot. >> it's been tough, and i think that -- i feel forgotten, and i'm sure a lot of other people feel that way. a lot of people have let us down. >> i feel very hopeless. i'm thinking i don't know if i'm going to be able to live through the put back to together, only to have it destroyed again because it seems like we're in a pattern. >> reporter: down the street the cormiers are seeing their home for the first time since evacuating to houston. >> nine hours. >> nine-hour drive? >> yes. >> normally 2 1/2. >> yes. >> reporter: their home faring well, but many did not. so many homes with blue tarps on them from the last hurricane, and now many of them looking like this, torn up from hurricane delta.
7:17 am
>> so you're just patching up what the last hurricane did? in lafayette a tree crashing >> yes. -- >> reporter: in lafayette, a tree crashing down right into this home. >> just talked to my husband about guardian angels. how we all need to have one. i said, thank god your guardian angel saved your life. >> reporter: chainsaws and heavy equipment needed to clear downed trees in jennings, louisiana. members of team rubicon have been working recovery in lake charles for weeks. now they're back to helping clear roads where the eye of delta came through. >> there's a psychological toll of staring at debris for six weeks straight and now knowing it's going to get strewn about your community again, and rip off the work that you have already done. >> reporter: i suppose it's a god thing those guys were already here helping with the current recovery so they could get right back in there. as a matter of fact, they said they had to evac and then reattack. good on team rubicon for helping out once again. let's show you what it did in lake charles. we saw flooding. strong surge, and highlights of
7:18 am
that. airboats and the national guard also and high water rescue vehicles had to get out to save me people ring the d kies there, and in alexandria, a big shelter of evacuees up there. so much of louisiana saw impacts from delta. getting it in georgia, you saw some flooding and watches posted for parts of the carolinas, and all of this will be making its way into d.c., baltimore, philly with wind and rain. as a matter of fact, winds will increase only as it gets into new york and boston later on tonight and tomorrow. ever good morning, sunday morning, where we have some sunshine here but also fog in the north bay. it's a cooler start for some. that fog lifts, we'll have a sunny and warmer day with afternoon haze north and east with the spare the air alert. elevated fire danger throughout the week. 69 in the city. 76 palo alto, with 82, napa, low

7:21 am
their promise. while it's a day of celebration and empowerment, it's also a day to focus on the fight forward. >> it's not easy, but don't stop until we see change happening. >> reporter: today is also a day to remember that women and girls around the world are being hit hard by this moment. one example, the global pandemic, has made it harder for them to keep jobs. according to the u.n., women's unemployment was lower than men's before the crisis, but it's now surpassed it. still a long way to go, whit. >> absolutely. so many hard hit. zohreen, thank you so much. we do appreciate it. coming up here on "gma," pennsylvania in the spotlight over so-called naked ballots. the state's attorney general will join us live. covid infractions in the nfl. what the league is doing when coaches don't follow the rules. and speaking out this morning. meghan markle on her pain from being attacked on social media. we'll be right back.

some of the other big stories we're following this morning. happening now, the president prt doctor saying donald trump is no longer considered a transmission risk and is cleared to return to an active schedule. this is on the heels of the president holding his first public event since testing positive for covid. the trump campaign pressing forward with back to back rallies scheduled this week. two of the group members involved in the foiled alleged plot to kidnap michigan's governor gretchen whitmer have now been confirmed as former marines. so far 13 men have been charged, 6 of them federally with conspireing to kidnap and the other seven in state court for allegedly planning a rebellious attack on the state capitol. st. lucy's river, an unmanned out of control boat seen circling the waters after the three people aboard fell out of the vessel. the boat then straightened out speeding up heading right into a concrete dock, before going airborne and hitting a second dock. and then coming to a stop.

really scary. we start this half hour with the fight over the so-called naked ballots. pennsylvania has become the first state to disqualify these naked ballots. that has celebrities taking off their clothes to make sure voters follow the rules. abc's devin dwyer is on the story fully clothed from washington, d.c. devin, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, dan. in most states if you are planning to vote by mail, you have to put your ballot in a secrecy envelope. it's considered naked without that. critics say the envelope doesn't -- isn't necessary to ensure a valid vote, but now a major court ruling in the key battleground of pennsylvania has voter advocates sounding the alarm. it has hollywood stars stripping down to bare skin. >> did you know that ballots could be naked? >> reporter: so-called naked ballots sent in without a security envelope, the target of a new psa after one critical battleground state for the first time plans to toss those ballots out.
7:33 am
>> pennsylvania. >> there are two envelopes you have to stuff your ballot in, otherwise, it's called a naked ballot. >> you don't want to have one of those. >> reporter: for years officials counted otherwise valid mail-in ballots received without a secrecy ballot. last month after the trump campaign challenged the practice the pennsylvania supreme court ruled that naked ballots violate the law. >> it was a huge decision, especially when we're talking about the potential for 100,000 votes in pennsylvania alone being tossed out because they forgot their secrecy envelope. >> reporter: 2.5 pennsylvania voters have requested mail-in ballots this fall. democrats outnumbering republicans in requests by more than two to one. >> i think that ruling and the prospect of throwing votes out is absurd. >> reporter: 16 states sent secrecy ballots to voters. pennsylvania is the only state that will now disqualify ballots that arrive without one, and giving voters no way to fix the ibilfor e te red element to cou
7:34 am
everybodcaepte representative malcolm quinata from philadelphia says this is stoking unnecessary concern over mail-in voting. >> this is about whether we'll have a functioning democracy. i said if you're not frustrated, you're not paying attention. >> reporter: no one knows how many votes might be tossed out since counties don't track naked ballots because they've never been disqualified before. the stakes could not be higher with as many as half americans expected to vote by mail this year. the best advice is simple advice. read the instructions closely. if you get a secrecy envelope, use it so your ballot doesn't arrive naked. eva? >> devin dwyer, thank you. joining us now is pennsylvania attorney general josh shapiro. thank you so much for being with us this morning. >> good to be with you, eva. >> first, let's start with how could this ruling on naked
7:35 am
ballots affect this election? >> well, this was an overall win for democracy, you know, the president of the united states is fond of saying that our ballots here in pennsylvania are a disaster. i say they're our democracy, and people need to make a plan to vote. the trump campaign literally sued us here in pennsylvania to make it harder for people to vote, to eliminate drop boxes, to allow poll watchers to come from one county into the other, which kind of sounds innocuous on its face, but it's really designed to intimidate voters in black and brown communities. they tried to set up a situation where if your signature on the back of your mail-in ballot envelope didn't match perfectly, they would throw away your ballot, and the court threw that argument out. eva, central to the president's argument was that there's all kinds of fraud here in pennsylvania. yet i went to court and said to the president, put up or shut up. demonstrate that fraud.
7:36 am
it's a low legal bar you have to demonstrate. he couldn't even cross that bar. p bottom line is we protected the right to vote of the citizens here in pennsylvania, and they need to come out and vote and drown out the noise of the president. >> in 2016 it was very close in pennsylvania. for these naked ballots to be tossed out, does that make it easier or harder for one party or the other? do we know who those early mail-in ballots were? >> couple things.mbne close bk n . i think the polls suggest it's not going to be that close this time. joe biden has a comfortable lead which is why i see the president trying to cheat, why i see the president lying about our system here in pennsylvania, and why i see the president going to court and routinely losing when he tries to attack our system. let me break this down for you
7:37 am
on the naked ballot issue because it's come up a few times. i have a sample mail-in ballot. fill out your ballot. choose your candidate, whoever you're for. fold it up. then you have two envelopes. this is the key. this is the secrecy envelope. you have to put your ballot in this secrecy envelope. why do we and 16 other states do this? we want your ballot to remain secret. it's a matter of private information until it's ultimately counted, and then, you put it in the outer envelope, sign the back, mail it back or drop it off in a drop box. this is not controversial no matter how much the president wants to sow doubt in our process. it's just a basic process. more and more the public is understanding how to engage in our democracy, either through the mail or by showing up on election day. i think you'll see agh vot turnout here in the commonwealth shapiro, thank you for being with us this morning. we appreciate your time. whit? we want to turn for a check of the weather. rob marciano in new orleans that
7:38 am
