7:03 am
cbs news projects the gop added at least ten seats in the house of representatives. it could become the biggest republican house majority since 1948. >> and republicans are cheering a dramatic shift in power in the senate. they'll have at least 52 senators in the next congress. so far the gop has picked up seven seats currently held by democrats including north carolina, west virginia, arkansas, iowa, south dakota, colorado and montana. and democratic incumbents are in danger in three undecided races. nancy cordes is here with a party recharge. nancy, good morning. >> good morning, norah, yes, they almost ran the table. we went into the night watching nine battleground races. republicans won six of them. a seventh is heading to a runoff and a republican is favored and eighth hasn't been called but it's leaning republican. they didn't just win what was supposed to be close races. they won big. by eight points in iowa.
7:04 am
18 points in arkansas. that's not a squeaker. that's a landslide. >> it's time to go in a new direction. >> in his victory speech, the senate's soon-to-be majority leader promises an end to the gridlock that has plagued washington. >> tonight they said we can have real change in washington, real change, and that's just what i intend to deliver. >> republicans picked up new senate seats not only in red states like arkansas but in states that go to the political center like colorado, iowa and north carolina where house speak thom tillis ousted kay hagan in the most expensive senate race. >> $111 million. we didn't bend, we won. >> only two republican senate seats were vulnerable and the gop held on to both. in georgia and in kansas, where three-term senator pat roberts
7:05 am
won re-election. >> no, we weren't dragged across the finish line. we crossed the finish line. we took the hill. >> thank you, new hampshire! >> one of the only bright spots for democrats was in new hampshire where senator jeanne shaheen defeated former massachusetts senator scott brown who had decided to try his luck in the granite state. >> i accept the decision of the voters and i've already offered my sincerest congratulations and my good wishes to senator shaheen. >> it was such a tough night for democrats that in virginia, senator mark warner held the slimmest of leads against republican ed gillespie which recent polls showed warner with a comfortable ten-point lead. in the south two of the last remaining democrats were defeated, in north carolina and in arkansas. if democrat mary landrieu loses her runoff in louisiana, virginia and florida will be the only southern states still sending democrats to the senate. and the man who will have to
7:06 am
hand over senate leadership to the republicans, harry reid congratulated the new leader. in a statement, he said, the message from voters is clear. they want us to work together. i look forward to working with senator mcconnell to get things done for the middle class. this gop takeover fundamentally changes the balance of power in washington. republicans will have the ability now to completely set the agenda and to try to pass gop priorities for the final two years of mr. obama's term. gayle? >> nancy, thanks. the republican wave extends to the governor's races across the country. at least 24 states elected republican governors on tuesday. only eight chose democrats. four races are still undeecided at this hour. >> rick scott defeated crist. and wisconsin voters gave governor scott walker a second term. he survived a recall election two years ago. new jersey governor chris
7:07 am
christie is with us. he campaigned for most of the gop winners. governor governor, welcome. if i was the head of the governor's association and i had in fact seen this kind of victory, and i was thinking about all those people that i'd helped, i'd be feeling really good this morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> can we call this a victory lap? >> you certainly can call it an acknowledgement of a lot of hard work by a lot of great governors. >> so ways the biggest and the sweetest victory for you personally, where you -- >> paul lepage being re-elected in maine. paul lepage, just one of the most decent honorable people i've ever met. wears his heart on his sleeve. had an amazing personal story. and on the incumbent side paul lepage is the sweetest one. and, you know, to win in massachusetts, maryland, and illinois, that's a good night for a blue state governor as chairman of the -- >> what do you want the republican senators do and say
7:08 am
today? what do you want them to accomplish to set the right tone for the next two years? >> listen, for republican governors, it's just about doing your job. and i think that's what you saw, charlie, across the country, you know, scott walker being affirmed in wisconsin. rick snider being affirmed in michigan. sam brownback in kansas. these are folks who just went about doing their jobs. i think that's what the american people are so hungry for. i saw it when i traveled to 37 states. there's a lot of anxiety in the country. >> you actually had a tough map facing you. it's not like the democrats were trying to get elected. we knew republicans were going to win, we didn't know how big. in the governors' races, it was actually an uphill battle for you guys. >> it certainly was. in nine of the states president obama had won them twice, so, you know, we went into it thinking if we have 26, 27 governors after the evening, not 31, 32 like we're going to have
7:09 am
now -- >> we didn't see president obama campaign in many states. he did campaign in the state of maryland. michelle obama was there. on monday. that surprised everybody on election night. >> well, listen, larry hogan ran a great race. and, you know, the rejecting the policy, of marty o'malley and his lieutenant governor anthony brown who was the candidate of high taxes and big spending and big government in maryland. even in maryland, that got to be too much. that's quite an accomplishment by marty o'malley and anthony brown to make it too much for maryland. >> in a reliably democratic state. >> incredibly reliable democratic state. you know it's one of those states, you think about it, there's only been two republican governors in the last 50 years, spiro agnew and him. >> what do you suggest? this was not only about the president but more about the country and people being left out. what can the republicans and
7:10 am
senate do for those people today? >> we need to get things done, charlie, put things on the president's desk and make him make some decisions. harry reid's proekt itprotected the president for the last couple of years. any real tough issues have never made it to the president's desk because they went to the senate to die. i think that won't happen now. we need to pass a national tax reform, national energy policy. we need to do things to make jobs grow in this country and people prosper. anxiety they feel is not only anxiety from foreign problems but also economic anxiety. i think that's what the senate can do. work in the house, get things done, put them on the president's desk and the president has to be the decider. >> so as you look towards 2016, as you sit here personally, do you feel some kind of vindication and validation because you've been taking lumps recently for your comments about the "sit down and shut up." >> that happens all the time folks in media love to focus on that. >> it wasn't just the media
7:11 am
focusing on that. >> listen whatever. you guys report it. that's how people know about it. the fact is i've never going to apologize for being who i am. if somebody's going to stand up holding a sign over me, eventually they're going to get comments. where i say, okay you're going to give it, you're going to get it. >> you don't regret handling that way? >> not one bit. that's who i am, gayle. that's who i am. >> states are the incubators of policy. if you were to pick a state, would it be kansas that should be replicated? wisconsin that should be replicated on a national level? >> you know, norah, it's an amalgam. look what john kasich did in ohio. john kasich is a really compassionate guy who i think put forward-thinking policies in ohio. such a great win but that's great job by john kasich. so i think it's an amalgam of all those states. >> if you run for president you're going to face some popular republicans from midwestern states. >> nobody knows who's going to
7:12 am
run. i don't think anybody's made up their mind yet. >> oh i think some -- >> a lot got up this morning and said wonder how i might become president. >> yes, i made some new friends on the road, i'm feeling pretty good about myself. >> you never know. >> can i ask you about the exit polls. we did ask in talking to so many voters who would make a good president. 42% said hillary clinton would be a good president. 28% said jeb bush. 24% said chris christie. >> good for that 24%, i guess, you know. we'll all go out and have dinner together. the fact is it's way off and, you know, my view on all this is that my job this year was to elect republican governors and re-elect republican governors. and i didn't spend any time on anything else. no other fund-raising. no other activities. all my focus was on this.
7:13 am
i think this morning we feel really good we all stayed together and we got the job done. >> governor, thank you so much for joining us this morning. the new congress offers new challenges for president obama. he will speak to reporters today. the president invited house and senate leaders to a white house meeting on friday. it is their first chance to discuss what can be done in the next two years. bill plante is at the white house with a look at how the two sides may come together. good morning. >> reporter: good morn and good morning to our viewers in the west. even though the gulf between the white house and congress has only grown wider, both are talking compromise. but history suggests that may be easier said than done. >> the president's not going to let politics get in the way. >> reporter: press secretary josh earnest suggested president obama may find common grounds with republicans on early childhood education and infrastructure investment. >> even if there are areas of disagreement on some issues, maybe there's an opportunity to compromise on some others. >> reporter: mostly absent on the midterm campaign trail,
7:14 am
president obama took to the radio on election day, acknowledging that many voters are frustrated. >> the polarization's gotten worse. obviously, i have a strong opinion as to why that happened. but, you know, the cynicism i think is something we've got to fight against. >> reporter: the republican leader in the senate mitch mcconnell, signaled that he's optimistic. >> just because we have a two-party system doesn't mean we have to be in perpetual conflict. >> reporter: history shows compromise may be possible. in 1998, president ronald reagan worked with the democratic congress to ratify a major treaty with the soviet union. bill clinton struck deals on welfare reform and deficit reduction after republicans took control of both houses. but president obama faces greater odds. he plans to move forward with executive actions on immigration and climate change, despite republican opposition. and those actions are guaranteed to keep relations difficult, but the president has a news conference this morning at 11:50.
7:15 am
he'll say that he wants to work with the new congress and, in fact, there may be some issues in which they can compromise. but the white house has already threatened to veto much of the republican agenda. so there is likely to be a lot more clashing coming up than compromise. >> we welcome peggy noonan. she's now a cbs news contributor. also with us, political analyst john dickerson. you both were up late last night. what is to take away from this? is is. >> i think it's a two-party story. the first part is an extraordinary republican consistent gain in the u.s. senate. second part of the story, a rather extraordinary collapse among democrats in the gubernatorial races. you put it together and you see this wave has meaning. >> john? >> the obama coalition we all
7:16 am
talked about after 2012 -- in 2008 though. in 2012, that coalition of voters does not translate. it attaches to him but democrats can't find that in nonpresidential years. >> democrats spent $60 million on turnout. what did they get for it? >> not much. particularly if you look in some of these battleground states, colorado, in some states, for example, in louisiana, north carolina, the african-american vote did better than it normally does in a midterm election. but that just wasn't enough in those very red states. but in colorado, this is a red battleground state where barack obama did well once or twice, they named the turnout effort after the turnout effort that had been successful in colorado in 2010 and they didn't do it in colorado. the number of democrats who participated was down. young voters didn't participate. as they did in the last off-year election. it didn't even move the needle. >> these races weren't even close, for some of them. gardner won by five points and in georgia, the republican won by eight points.
7:17 am
in iowa, the republican won by eight points. that's a big lead. >> cotton by 18. yes, cotton by 18 in arkansas. >> mitch mcconnell by 15. i mean these were blowouts. and in virginia coming within points of each other, a point of each other, is a blowout, if you will. the republican was supposed to lose by 10, 15 points. so that was something. that was a statement, i believe. >> i've heard people on both sides say, look, we want to compromise, we want to work together. i also heard joni ernest say in her victory speech last night, we're going to go to washington, we're going to make them squeal. that doesn't sound very compromising to me. how do you see this playing out for both parties? >> i continue to think for both parties there's real gain in get together, agree on something. if it is tax policy, you'll get the republicans and you'll get moderate democrats. make them come together. they produce something which america would love to see. and it goes to the president who hopefully would accept it.
7:18 am
>> charlie has picked up really on something interesting that we saw in our exit polls. 53% says the economic system favors the wealthy. you were saying this is so key for the future. >> absolutely. we've talked about this. the idea of people feeling like washington is not working for them and the economic recovery didn't affect them. they read about the stock market having new levels. none of it is about them. >> that is still the central question of politics today, and the voters are going to punish anybody who isn't addressing that question, even if the people they give power to haven't necessarily said anything to address that question either. they want somebody new because the person who's doing it right now they don't believe is taking it seriously. >> interesting how the president perceives all this. >> there's a piece by peter baker saying he wants to assert his relevance, that he feels constrained in that he's not allowed to participate in a debate. >> it's interesting in talking to one of the strategists. he said basically there's been all these efforts by democrats
7:19 am
to cast their message narrowly at women. and his argument was this should have been a big rock 'em sock 'em fight about the middle class, and that's the fight the president wanted to join in on. >> and they want to make it now. >> yeah, good luck with that. >> i know. but it would be about shaping the future and that will be the argument. >> did democrats follow along with them? they didn't in the last election. >> i think what you're talking about, 63% of the american electorate saying no it's kind of rigged against me these rich people. that's populist spirit. we'll see more of it. >> it's the central theme of our time. >> all right. peggy, you had the last word for now. our coverage of the midterm elections continues right here and online. nancy cordes answered your questioning on our "cbs this morning" facebook page. >> i'll tell you. she's so smart she knows every new detail.
7:20 am

8:02 am
i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. this morning the map of capitol hill is turning bright red. republican party will control all of congress in january. angry voters gave the gop a landslide victory, selection. democrats lost control of the senate giving up at least seven seats. three democratic senators are still in limbo. >> republicans are likely to have their largest house majority in more than 60 years. the democrats will lose at least ten seats there and across the country. republicans won at least 24 of the 36 gubernatorial races. president obama won more than half a dozen of those states two years ago. in his home state of illinois voters threw out democratic incumbent pat quinn. >> the president is going to hold a news conference later today to discuss the election. cbs news learned he called mitch mcconnell this morning and left a message congratulating him on his apparent new role as senate majority leader. exit polls this morning show
8:03 am
americans sent an overriding message to the white house, we're worried about the future. anthony mason is watching what voters are saying. >> good morning. the number one issue in this election again, the economy. 45% of voters put it at the top of their list. as for the direction of the economy, well, people are worried. nearly eight out of ten voters told us they're worried. the unemployment rate may be down but household incomes still have not recovered from the recession. the numbers are also discouraging when we asked people about where the country is headed. 65% say it's on the wrong track. and that doesn't bode well for the future in voters' minds. nearly half 48%, think life will be worse for the next generation, their children. that's the highest number we've ever seen in cbs news exit polling. midterm elections of course are all about getting out the base for both parties. so how did they do? first, let's look at three key democratic constituent sis. young voter, african-american
8:04 am
and hispanics. two years ago they made up a critical part of the obama coalition. but this time around they all declined as a percentage of the electorate. the biggest falloff coming among young voter, dropping from 19% to 13%. republicans, on the other hand managed to energize their base and get them to the polls. a big increase in voters 65 and older, from 16 to 22%. whites and conservatives up as well. so it appears republicans were helped by an older more conservative electorate. key factors in them gaining control of both the house and senate. charlie? >> anthony, thanks. cbs news will bring you live coverage in a special report. those of you in the west can see his news conference this morning at 11:50 pacific. john dickerson joins us again. also cbs news contributor and republican strategist frank luntz is in detroit. he's done some nationwide exit polling. frank, good morning. tell us what you found out and what is the most interesting and
8:05 am
surprising thing from this election for you. >> well, as we talked about yesterday, this was not an election about barack obama but it wasn't even an election about washington. what we found out is just it's a complete rejection, frankly, of those who want to do more in government that no matter where you look, the public is saying enough is enough. do less and do it better. i'm going to give you three statistics. first, when we asked them what was the reason for why you voted, the number one reason was to send a message to washington to make the change that the public deserves. only 25%, one out of four voters, voted to send a message or to refuse to support barack obama. second, and i think this is dramatic. 42% voted against the candidate for senate. four out of ten voters said that it's not that they voted for someone, it's that they voted against someone. the third is that the public genuinely wants the american people -- the american people generally want washington and
8:06 am
government to work together in compromise. survey was done for each american dream and the message, charlie, is clear. now that you won, start to govern, start to lead and start to get things done. >> all right. where do the republicans go from here? how will they work with the vt and vice versa? >> well, i think they have to basically, as the strategists and leaders in both the house and the senate say is that they are now being watched and they have to show that they can govern. and that, i think, based on my initial conversations, does not mean grand big things. they need small, trust-building exercises not just necessarily to begin the process of working with the president, but the deal with the challenges within their own party. it's wonderful to win but then everybody thinks they know the new way for winning. i mean excuse me the new way forward. so you're going have one group of republicans that want to go this way and another group goes that way. the leaders have to build a coalition and say let's move
8:07 am
forward together. that's tricky. >> that's why you have leaders. >> that's why you have the leaders but the levers of power -- it's interesting, the institutions change. the senate is a good example. you can rise in the senate now by being a bug publicig public figure. less levers of powers for the leaders to get you to do what they want. >> what message does it send if last night rand paul raises the question will president obama obstruct the process or work with us? >> well -- >> if he's putting that out there already? >> his focus groups will tell you that's probably not a message the people want to hear. >> frank? >> yeah, the number one at attribute, according to the survey, the number one attribute is frustration. and so they don't want on election night for someone to be saying no. there are no absolutes from today forward. and this goes for blue states for purple states and for red states. the amazing thing is that it was a universal, just standing up
8:08 am
and saying no to what is happening today. no to the status quo. >> here's my question. let's talk about the new people in the senate. you have mitch mcconnell jody ernst in iowa gardner in colorado, very conservative former house member there. if you look a at number of the new senators they're quite conservative. why wouldn't they go along with what rand paul said? they're going to send bills up to the president. and we'll see where the president wants to work with us or not. is the president going to be forced to veto a bunch of bills? >> yeah. but that's okay. that's the way it's supposed to work. that's not necessarily bad if. it's just a question of whether the bills, everybody looksal them -- >> another election, another change election where voters kick out members of parties because they're sick of them? >> it depends. the way they designed this american system was you could send them up, get vetoed, and then have a conversation and fix
8:09 am
them and then they go through. if the legislation sent up is gimmicky a show thing and the president is making his own showy behavior that has nothing to do with getting an end result, then you will have another rejukz. >> let's talk about the economy. as anthony and gailyle were doing in exit polls last night, 78% of the people were saying they were worried about the economy and yet wall street is just buzzing along and you have 63% say the u.s. economic system favors the wealthy. how is that going to play in terms of how candidates who want to win the president in 20116 talk about this real economic divide in this country. >> they have to say i'm fighting for you, and when they si you they have to speak to that 70% who thinks the economic system is tilted away from them. >> frank? >> and what they're looking for is a government that is more efficient, more effective, and spends less. this is overwhelmingly the top two priorities. it's not changing obamacare. it's not isis. it's not ebola. the government more efficient,
8:10 am
effective, and washington should spend less. that will give americans faith in the economy for the future. >> am i naive to believe it would be in everybody's interest if republicans and democrats will find a way to come together on something to get things started? >> it would be. >> hope springs eternal. >> we can do this and we can build on it. >> you can -- let's look at the specific interest of each side. the republicans say they have to show they can govern. and the president has got to worry about his legacy and what's the last thing they're going to think about when he leaves office. >> i'd like to see a meeting when the president says what do you want? and they say, what do you want? then try to find a way out. >> all right. frank luntz, yesterday when you left us you said don't trust republican pollsters. you're not saying that today, mr. luntz. good to see you. >> it's wonderful to see you all, too. from detroit. >> thank you, john dickerson from detroit. we know social media scored big time yesterday on election day but could sharing your voting experience be illegal?
