7:04 am
dokoupil. >> good morning, guys. welcome to michigan. we've got may's diner opened early for us. we're well fueled and a lot to get to. i'm in mt. clemmons. it's in macomb county, michigan, a crucial battleground in the 2020 election. it's a swing county in a swing state. our road trip runs straight through here and the road to the white house may as well. let me give you big picture numbers. there are more than 688,000 registered voters in this blue collar county alone. two times they voted for former president obama before flipping and going to president trump in 2016. by a wide margin, in fact. but the president won this state only narrowly. he got the 16 electoral votes by a razor-thin margin beating hillary clinton by fewer than 11,000 votes overall. where are things now? in a recent cbs news/battleground tracker poll, joe biden leads president trump here in michigan, 52% to 46%. but it's close. they are both visiting this area and making a final push.
7:05 am
later in the broadcast, we're going to hear from democratic governor gretchen whitmer on the alleged plot to kidnap her. plus we'll talk about what she thinks of the president who joined a chant over the weekend of lock her up. we're also talking to voters. they're going to be the deciders here and tell us what issues matter most to them. and also a test to find out what issues really get their blood boiling the most. anger can be a powerful motivator in an election season. moving on out of michigan, president trump, he's focused on some other critical states in the west. he's going to hold rallies in arizona later today. that's a state he won last time but the latest cbs news/battleground tracker poll suggests joe biden has the edge there at the moment. he's up by about three points. yesterday the president talked about battlegrounds. he was in nevada. no republican has won that state since 2004. but the president thinks he might be able to do it. weijia jiang is in las vegas for
7:06 am
us. good morning to you. what is president trump's campaign strategy there right now? >> good morning, tony. it is all about facetime with voters. the trump campaign does not want what happened here in nevada four years ago to happen again. president trump lost. his current swing out west is part of an intense final push that's expected to include up to five campaign stops a day ahead of november 3rd. >> it's great to be back in nevada. >> reporter: at a packed rally sunday night, president trump courted voters and slammed joe biden. >> if he comes in, it will become a ghost town and the christmas season will be canceled. >> reporter: earlier in the day, the president attended a church service in las vegas. >> i love my president. god bless you, president trump. >> he received a blessing and issued a warning to the congregation. >> you better get out because we have a group on the other side that doesn't agree with us. >> reporter: nevada is one of
7:07 am
five states with a covid-19 positivity rate higher than 20%. last week, the president also held rallies in iowa and wisconsin where he was asked if he was sending the wrong message by holding large events during the pandemic. >> well, i don't think so because i'm not a big shut down believer. >> reporter: even after getting sick himself, mr. trump continues to say the end of the pandemic is near. >> we're rounding the corner. we've got the vaccines, but even without it, we're rounding the corner. >> reporter: but cases of coronavirus are rising in around 40 states. a point former vice president biden seized on at a drive-in rally in north carolina. >> this guy has gone around the bend, if he thinks we've turned the corner. turned the corner? things are getting worse. >> reporter: since april, the biden campaign has outraised the trump team by more than $280 million. it's spending more, too. especially in crucial
7:08 am
battleground states. shelling out over $24 million more in florida. nearly $30 million more in pennsylvania and more than $18 million in wisconsin. >> as my coach used to say in college, it's go time. >> reporter: a senior trump campaign official tells cbs news they are announcing a significant advertising buy today. later, president trump will hold a rally in arizona where the biden campaign is also outspending him by about $12 million. biden is beating the president in statewide polls there, even though a democrat has not won arizona since bill clinton in 1996. tony? >> all right, weijia, thank you very much. as i toss it back to you in new york, you heard a bit about the battle for the air waves. also a ground game battle. a battle for turnout going door to door. we'll have more on that later in the show. for now, back to you in new york. >> tony, thanks. we'll see you later in the forecast. more than 28 million americans reportedly have
7:09 am
already cast their ballots in this election. over the past week, we've seen massive early voting lines in multiple states. part of what's expected to be a record turnout. manuel bojorquez is in miami. manny, early voting is just getting under way there. what are you seeing? >> good morning. we are seeing a long line. this one here extends around the corner and down the block with just over two weeks to go until election day. people are eager to cast their ballots. some people got in this line before 5:00 this morning, braving downpours. it is florida, after all. many voters told us they wanted to get here early to cast their ballots before the beginning of the workday. enthusiasm is reaching a fever pitch in the sunshine state. for both president trump and joe biden, winning florida could signal a path to the white house. >> if we win florida, and it's all over!
7:10 am
>> reporter: and turnout is already booming. >> really excited about what we're about to do in two weeks. >> reporter: nearly 2 1/2 million people have already cast their votes by mail in the state. that's already come close to surpassing the number from the entire 2016 election. but it's not just florida. turnout is shattering records across the country. according to some estimates, voters have so far cast more than six times the amount of ballots compared to the same time period four years ago. that's led to excessively long lines from north carolina to louisiana, to texas, which has nearly 2 million more registered voters than it did in 2016. >> but as with past elections, it's florida getting a lot of attention. the president has been at least 13 times this year. biden at least three. president trump won the swing state in 2016 by just under 113,000 votes. but so far, democrats here have turned in nearly 500,000 more ballots.
7:11 am
david becker is the executive director of the center for election innovation and research. >> does the president casting doubt on the integrity of mail-in ballots, do you think that's had some republicans say, let's wait until we can do it in person? >> the president's false claims about mail voting and questions about integrity of mail voting have made only his own voters doubt that very important option. >> and if you need any indication of just how important florida is to both campaigns, just take a look at the advertising dollars. the two campaigns have spent nearly a combined $158 million on advertising in the state with more on the way. >> all right, manny, thank you. i just hope whoever wins christmas season is not canceled. cancel a lot of stuff. please don't cancel christmas, too. economic stimulus negotiations are expected to resume today on capitol hill after months without an
7:12 am
agreement. house speaker nancy pelosi says if there is no deal by tomorrow, it will not happen before election day. nancy cordes has that story from capitol hill. >> we don't have agreement in the language yet, but i'm hopeful. >> reporter: speaker pelosi says she and treasury secretary steve mnuchin are still haggling over numbers and the fine print. >> they said they changed shall to may. requirements to recommendations. a plan to a strategy. not a strategic plan. they took out 55% of the language that we had there for testing and tracing. >> reporter: in a letter to colleagues on sunday, pelosi said the two sides are also still at odds over tax credits for lower income working people and funding for state and local governments. >> she doesn't want to give the money. >> reporter: after bargaining pelosi down from $3.4 trillion to about $2 trillion, president trump's story has changed. he now claims, incorrectly, that
7:13 am
he's the one who wants a larger deal. >> we want to do it. i want to do it at a bigger number than she wants. >> reporter: both sides agree the package should include another round of stimulus checks, money for schools and a reinstatement of federal unemployment benefits which lapsed in july. britin foster of new york relied on the last stimulus deal. >> basically we've just been subsisting at the lowest level that we possibly can. eating as little food as possible. i make sure my daughter has food. i eat once a day. >> reporter: her biggest worry now is losing her home. >> this is not a political game. it can't wait until after the election. something has to happen now. >> reporter: one big hitch here. republicans in the senate oppose another big spending bill. the republican leader mitch mcconnell plans to hold an initial vote tomorrow on a $500 billion stimulus package. that's about a quarter of the size of the one that's being negotiated between speaker
7:14 am
pelosi and the white house. but democrats, anthony, are expected to balk at that. >> nancy, thank you. this morning, the recorded number of coronavirus cases has reached 40 million worldwide. the u.s. has been reporting the highest number of new cases since the summer. hospitalizations are up in at least 30 states. our lead national correspondent david begnaud is tracking the latest outbreak. david, good morning. >> anthony, good morning. one of those states is utah. that's where we'll begin this morning. one of the largest hospitals in that region is over capacity. quite frankly what's happening there is simply unsustainable. and that's why they are about to open a field hospital in utah. coronavirus is pushing utah's hospitals to the brink. the icu at the university of utah hospital in salt lake city was at 104% capacity last friday. and that forced patients into surge beds.
7:15 am
>> this is as serious as it gets. >> reporter: dr. russell vinik is from the university of utah health care. he says with cases still rising and no noticeable improvement in people's behavior, he believes the worst is still ahead. >> we cannot manage a long surge. and with the weather getting worse, with halloween, thanksgiving coming on, people are more likely to have indoor social gatherings. we absolutely have to have the public change their practice and make some sacrifices. >> public health experts continue to urge americans to stick to the basics of virus prevention like social distancing and wearing masks. but the newest member of the white house coronavirus task force, dr. scott atlas, who is not an expert in infectious diseases, posted a tweet on saturday claiming that masks do not work. it was removed by twitter for violating the site's policies against misinformation. meanwhile, president trump continues to call the efficacy of masks into question.
7:16 am
even pointing to dr. anthony fauci and his guidance from the early days of the pandemic as reason the president says we should all be skeptical. >> he said do not wear a mask. so we don't wear a mask. then they say, oh, wear a mask. >> reporter: in a "60 minutes" interview with dr. jon lapook, dr. fauci took the time to explain why his stance on masks changed. >> let's see if we can put this to rest once and for all. it became clear that cloth coverings, things like this here, and not necessarily a surgical mask or an n95. cloth coverings work. so now there's no longer a shortage of masks. number two, meta analysis studies show that, contrary to what we thought, masks really do work in preventing infection. >> no doubt. >> so no doubt. >> and there you go. this morning, we're in new york
7:17 am
city. new york state continues to be really strict when it comes to keeping an eye out for large gatherings. there was supposed to be a wedding in brooklyn in an ultraorthodox community and the guest list was going to be as high as 10,000 people. the governor intervened on friday night and sent his officials there and said you can't have more than 50 people. >> yeah, david, it's being reported it's a rabbi's grandson. it was an open invitation to 10,000 people so really glad the governor stepped in there. thank you very much. the case against five of the men accused of plotting to kidnap michigan governor gretchen whitmer is heading to a grand jury. prosecutors say their evidence includes this video of what they called a field training exercise. they also have a map allegedly drawn by one of the men that shows the area around whitmer's home. lawyers for the suspects argue they never intended to kidnap the governor. she's been challenged by right wing protesters who object to public restrictions to fight the coronavirus. president trump blasted the democratic governor's handling of the pandemic at a campaign
7:18 am
stop in michigan on saturday afternoon. responding to supporters, the chants of "lock it up," the president seemed to relish this moment. he then said lock them all up. so tony asked the governor, governor whitmer, to respond to that. tony, what did she say? >> well, gayle, this is very serious business around here. she said that with every comment like the one we just heard, threats to her life increase. whitmer also said she's asked the white house direct three bring down the heat. >> what kind of response do you get? >> it falls on deaf ears every time. they haven't done a darn thing. in fact, ten days after a plot to kidnap, to put me on trial and then to murder me, ten days later, they are back in michigan using the same rhetoric i've been asking them to turn the heat down. it is dangerous. >> you can see there we joined governor whitmer as she went door to door meeting with voters in the contested county of oakland county. coming up later in the
7:19 am
broadcast, we'll be talking about president trump's struggles with suburban voters. that's a key voting bloc both parties need to win. >> always wonder what he means. he never finishes his sentence about suburban women. i saved the suburb, from my name is hen

7:30 am
you're looking at a lovely shot of the emerald theater. welcome back to "cbs this morning." president trump won michigan by a razor thin margin in 2016 and both the president and joe biden are focused on turnout there this election. michigan is one of three crucial battleground states. tony is visiting this week for our series "at america's crossroads." let's go back to tony who is in michigan outside detroit. tony, good morning again. >> hey, good morning, guys.
7:31 am
many thanks to the emerald theater. i always wanted to see my name in lights. this is interesting. most people in michigan woke up unhappy about the results of the 2016 election. that's at least according to their votes. donald trump won with only 47% support in an election where hundreds of thousands of people cast their ballot for a third party candidate or did not vote at all. well, now democrats, including michigan governor gretchen whitmer are focused on two things. turnout in detroit and winning the suburbs for joe biden. >> hi. >> reporter: michigan governor gretchen whitmer spent part of this past weekend going door to door. >> health care for all is very important for me. >> with dog treats in her pocket. hearing from voters in oakland, michigan. >> what's the most important thing? >> the pandemic. i'm a physician. and the handling of the pandemic has been horrific. >> reporter: it's part of a get out the vote effort in a ring of
7:32 am
suburban areas surrounding detroit. the biden campaign had put a coronavirus related pause on door knocking. while the trump campaign had not. >> they are very proud of their ground game. they've been knocking on doors long before you guys started doing this. >> i can't tell you what they've been doing. we've been taking this pandemic seriously. >> reporter: the biden campaign also seriously knows it needs to do better here than hillary clinton did four years earlier. losing by the thinnest margin of any state. less than 11,000 votes. >> so what's your theory of what happened in 2016? why did turnout fall from 2020 for the democrats? >> michiganders did not come oout and vote. >> donald trump won with a minority, only 47% or so. >> we don't have tidal waves here in michigan, but i think this year is going to dwarf anything we've ever seen. and i think that bodes well for joe biden and i think it bodes well for michigan. >> donald trump has been not knocking on doors but at his rallies bringing up the suburbs all the time. >> yeah. >> we saved suburbia in the u.s.
7:33 am
>> he says he saved the suburbs. suburbs like these. >> these suburbs didn't need to be saved, though. and the people who call these suburbs home care as much about equity, care as much about ensuring every child has a path to a good education. they care about every family being able to drink their water and about climate change. so those -- those dog whistles don't really land when you're really talking to voters here. >> 40 minutes away in detroit, michigan's republican chairwoman laura cox says a few gubernatorial door knocks this late in the election is no match for the gop's turnout operation. the campaign claims to have knocked on a million doors in michigan alone. >> we're in a great place. we'll win again for the president and vice president. the enthusiasm is palpable. >> get out and vote. thank you. >> we noticed a different kind of enthusiasm scrolled across the wall of the gop's black voices headquarters here. >> when you talk about enthusiasm or emotion here, what
7:34 am
does that graffiti tell you? >> we're getting under their skin and our messages are resonating and they're worried. >> reporter: detroit is the largest majority black city in america and perhaps the biggest single reason donald trump triumphed in michigan in 2016. hillary clinton won the county by a landslide but with 76,000 viewer votes than barack obama. which is why we stopped by a voter registration event hosted by detroit action, a community group trying to bring more voters to the polls. that's where we found musician mike phelps who says last election he didn't bother with voting. didn't see the point. >> where were you in 2016? >> at home. america has had a history of promising change to certain groups and then never seeing that change. >> reporter: now he says the stakes are clear. and not only to him. >> a lot of my friends who never get into politics are all in it right now. they're going to vote. they registered. they're voting from home, voting at the polls.
7:35 am
i've seen a lot more excitement. >> reporter: so one thing i'll tell you about mike phelps there. he's a terrific musician. we were almost late for our conversation with governor whitmer because we hung around at that event to hear him finish his set. the other thing i want to tell you about mike phelps, he could be representative of a big voting bloc out there. he is saying, you know, who is president doesn't really affect his life, doesn't change his life but he's aware it does affect other people. that's what's motivating him to go to the polls. we could see a landslide in this election one way or the other as people wake up to the realization that this matters. >> so interesting to see these people voting for the first time. >> on both sides. very psyched up. it's going to be very interesting night on tuesday. 15 days from now. >> tony, thank you. up next -- a hiker missing for almost two weeks in utah's zion national park is found alive. how search crews were able to locate her and a reminder you can always get the morning's news by subscribing to the "cbs

what is heating up is the presidential race. we are in mount clemens, one of three counties surrounding detroit which everyone agrees are going to be crucial to winning the state of michigan. about that state, both campaigns have been working very hard here. president trump won by less than .3 percentage points in 2016. that is a tiny margin. he is currently trailing jobe in the polls by sick points. the factor is the economy. it is a major issue for the vast majority of the voters here. of course that is also tied to the coronavirus because michigan's unemployment rate more than doubled after the pandemic hit. big question is, who would do a better job with the economy here? voters are split on that question according to our recent cbs news battleground tracker poll president trump has -- very different policies. he is calling for an easing of the restrictions because of the

8:13 am
covid. it is cold here in wisconsin. with that comes call festivities. >> reporter: as goons and gob listens haunted main street in downtown racine some locals seemed spook about the election. how are you feeling about the election? >> nervous. we are divided in our house. i work this the social work field so some of the issuesed bian stands for affects me and my daily job. >> reporter: why does your husband support trump? >> he works this the industrial industry. he is saying they have done really well. >> reporter: what is dinner table conversation been like? >> we try to avoid it because we do get into some heated discussions. >> reporter: president trump won wisconsin in 2016 by just 23,000 votes. that's when this woman flipped for donald trump. >> i thought obama let the country down. >> reporter: because of your
8:14 am
votes, president trump won by a sliver last time. do you see that motivation this time in trump supporters? >> i do. i think more so than what anybody else would like to believe. >> reporter: on the same corner, a different view. how would you rate the president's job with covid? >> 0%. >> the economy is turned upside down right now. it is getting back on track, better health care, a president who cares. some of the things that comes out of his mouth, i just can't believe he would say it. >> reporter: thousands of people, many maskless, showed up to hear him speak in janesville saturday. and beth schmidt was there. what are your reasons for wanting to keep the president in the white house? >> when you sit and go and listen to him and you can hear the substance of what he has done. i am happy with what he has done with israel and jerusalem. i'm very happy with what he has done with our tariffs. >> reporter: in a state that's already a clash of contres, farmland versus city, biden supporters neighboring trump voters it is hard to tell who
8:15 am
has the edge. in milwaukee county, where 65% of the state's black population lives, this revenue is trying toy avoid what happened in 2016 when in wisconsin 129,000 black voters sat the election out according to a howard university study. >> our community is in critical condition. we are on life support. we are on a breathing machine. we in intensive care. it's code blue. >> reporter: you are not just talking about health. you are talking about economics. >> i am talking about the business opportunities, education. i am talking about all of it. >> reporter: how does covid complicate people turning out? >> well, i almost died of covid. in march. you know, i -- i'm just blessed to be here. so it's another suppression because folks are not just coming out here -- especially the older folks, who really vote. >> reporter: that's why his field teams are out every day at
8:16 am
a social distance. >> we hit almost 3,000 homes. >> reporter: 3,000 homes? >> my goal was to hit 4,000 houses insure all adults in margaret sprigs' home have voted too. >> i sat and watched the debate. >> reporter: you haven't watched debates in the past? >> no, i haven't. >> reporter: what changed? >> the coronavirus. >> reporter: given the coronavirus, antoinette said she wanted to see which candidate was best for her and her family. what is really interesting is nearly every single person we spoke to already voted by mail. coronavirus safety is one reason. another is people want to make sure their votes coupe. a federal court rules any mail-in votes that arrive after election day will not be counted. that's being challenged in the supreme court. gayle and anthony, we have more coming up here from the road including the issues that are getting michigan voters riled up. i do mean riled up. woe talked to them while

8:19 am
"black lives matter" has become a global movement from peaceful pretties to colorful
8:20 am
murals that paint the streets. this fall named one of thyme magazine's 100 most influential people with fellow movement founders. patrisse cullors and opal tometi. now they are sharing lessons on how to bring people together and create change if her new book, the purpose of power, how we come together when we fall apart." and hello, i read your book over the weekend aood vigilante who decided to take the law into his own hands. you wrote at the time you cried and you were angry. for his mother, sabrina fulton and then for america. and you wrote. this black people i love you. i love you as us, our lives matter. you never intended for that to become a movement or a hashtag. what happened after that?
8:21 am
>> well. after that we got together and tried to figure out how to harness some of the energy that we were seeing online and get people to take action together offline. of course we are not the only people who were trying to figure that out. i think there were organizations across the country who were also trying to figure out how to get -- >> didn't even know what a hashtag was. >> i i didn't at all. i thought it was a pound sign because that is the generation i'm from. but i can say this, gayle. we didn't have any idea that this would spread globally but i think we're really honored and i know i'm hoeshed to be the smallest piece of something so big and so powerful. >> and now its been described by some. some critics who describe it as the terrorist organization and you say the words have consequences when it is portrayed that way. >> it is definitely true. so many know what happens online
8:22 am
but very few have a peek into what is happening offensive lli. and i talk about the political conditions that we're living in. and under this administration we have been subject to all kinds of attacks. i get death threats every day. i know patrice does as well and there are so many -- >> wait, you are getting death threats. >> every single day i get death threats. and i think it is important for people to understand what does it mean for us to be the kind of country where this doesn't happen? to folks who are trying to change rules that have been rigged against our communities for such a long time. and that is really what this book gets into. it is a reflection for me on the things that i've learned, the things that i'm unlearning and the things i'm still learning and i hope that it will be a helpful tool for people who are trying to figure out how to get started, or for people who are trying to figure how to keep going. >> i like how you say hashtags do not build a movement. people build a movement and you
8:23 am
can't sustain a movement with anger and grief. what do you mean by that? >> well i think there is so much emphasis placed on social media. and i get asked all the time, you know, how do i build a social media following so that i can build a movement? and i have to explain to folks, right, that movements fundamentally are first and foremost about getting more power to more people. but it is also about impacting people where they are and building relationships off linebacker as well as online. what we're up against right now requires deepening of our relationships. it requires us doing addition and multiplication rather than subtraction and division. and hashtags don't do that. only people can accomplish that. >> but for a lot of people, you know this, they look at the "black lives matter" movement. they see looting. they see burning. they see destruction. i want you to address that. and i want you to address too because people are upset when they think "black lives matter" is a point you make throughout
8:24 am
the book. "black lives matter" does not negate the significance of people who are not black. people say all lives matter. which is true. >> it is true. but if all lives mattered, then we wouldn't have black lives not mattering. and i think one of the things that i say in the book is that it is important for us to be able to tell our own stories. that is part of why i wrote this book. so many people talk about "black lives matter" without talking to the people who are helping to push it and when it comes to the perceptions of a protests in the country. vice news ran a story just a couple of weeks ago that said that 97% of "black lives matter" protests are peaceful. and in the 3% where they are not it is often because there are people who are not protesters who are bringing guns to protests. one of the things we don't talk enough about is the presence of white militias in our protests. the presence of racial terror that is also being advanced by
