7:04 am
pennsylvania. >> good morning. a very big deal. the supreme court has decided not to get involved in a case on mail-in ballots. and that's occurred to be a major victory for democrats in pennsylvania. here's what happened. the court turned down a republican challenge last night and now the state must count ballots received up to three days after the election as long as they're postmarked by election day. chief justice john roberts sided with the three liberal justices in a 4-4 split that upholds a lower court ruling in pennsylvania. now this is something to keep an eye on as thousands of late arriving ballots will now be counted. lateness was one of the major reason yes ballots were not counted in 2016. this really could be decisive in the state of pennsylvania. but now turning here to ohio, president trump is now essentially tied with democratic nominee joe biden at 50% to 49%. that's according to the latest cbs news estimate. our battleground tracker. and folks here have been early voting for the past two weeks.
7:05 am
now why ohio? why is it so important? understand this. 14 times in a row the candidate who has won this state has also won the presidency. so coming up in our next half hour, we'll show you the issues that ohio voters care about the most and why one political scientist called this state a microcosm of america. now about that streak, 14 consecutive times picking the president, you know, past performance is no guarantee of future success. but i will say, ohio's 18 electoral votes are also one of the biggest prizes on the map, guys. >> yeah, but so far, their track record is pretty good, tony dokoupil. 14 days and counting, we shall see. thanks. now to the president's attacks on dr. anthony fauci which have reached a whole new level of increduality. he continues to sound the alarm about this pandemic. in arizona yesterday, mr. trump said people are, quote, pandemiced out. he's also called dr. anthony
7:06 am
fauci a disaster. paula reid is at the white house with more on this story. good morning. a lot of people are shaking their hands this morning saying how is this okay? >> good morning. well, dr. fauci and president trump agree that most americans are tired of the pandemic. but with 13 million americans unemployed, 80 million having fallen below the poverty line during the pandemic, the way through this is with science. but on the campaign trail monday, president trump was focused on attacking dr. fauci and other scientists. >> biden wants to lock it down. he wants to listen to dr. fauci. >> on the campaign trail monday, president trump attacked dr. anthony fauci almost as often as he did his opponent. >> he loves being on television. we let him do it. sometimes he says things that are a little bit off. >> reporter: earlier on a call with campaign staff, the president unloaded on the nation's top infectious disease expert and other scientists.
7:07 am
>> people are tired of hearing fauci and all these idiots, these people, these people that have gotten it wrong. fauci is a nice guy. he's been here for 500 years. every time he goes on television, there's always a bomb. but there's a bigger bomb if you fire him. but fauci is a disaster. >> reporter: but mr. trump's attacks came after fauci spoke to "60 minutes." and criticized what he said was a superspreader event at the white house last month. >> i was worried that he was going to get sick when i saw him in a completely precarious situation of crowded, no separation between people and almost nobody wearing a mask. when i saw that on tv, i said, oh, my goodness. nothing good can come out of that. that's got to be a problem. >> reporter: in an interview on monday, fauci said the war of words distracts from the battle against covid.
7:08 am
>> what we're trying to do is to protect the health and the welfare and the safety of the american people. >> the president continues to hold packed rallies despite cases rising across the country. >> people are pandemiced out. you know that? they're pandemiced out. >> fauci warns that worse days could be ahead and that we need to follow the science. >> if things don't turn around and change, as we get into the cool months of the fall and cold months of the winter that we may be headed into some really more serious issues than we've experienced. >> reporter: the president's rival, former vice president joe biden issued a statement in response to these attacks saying the american people are tired. they're tired of your lies about the virus. they're tired of watching more americans die. and more people lose their jobs because you refuse to take this pandemic seriously. >> paula, thank you. even if people may be pandemiced out, as the president says, the coronavirus continues to infect
7:09 am
tens of thousands of americans every day and kill hundreds of them. more than 58,000 new cases were reported yesterday. hospitalizations are on the rise in 38 states, including wisconsin. adriana diaz got exclusive access to a hospital in madison where the number of coronavirus patients doubled in the last two weeks. this was the first time it allowed cameras inside since the pandemic began. >> every day, nurse katie lanoway suits up to save lives. she treats patients at university hospital in madison where all three of their covid units are now full. >> we had one hallway dedicated to covid and the rest out here was our regular general care. a couple of weeks ago, i left work and it was that way and two days later i came back and this entire unit became covid. >> are you nervous for your own safety? >> i feel safer here around my
7:10 am
colleagues than i would if i had to go to the grocery store. i trust the people that i'm working with, that they're doing the right thing. >> reporter: that's because outside, more and more people are getting sick. to keep up, a new drive-through testing site was just opened at the major league baseball stadium in milwaukee where they could test 2,000 people per day. >> a friend of mine who tested positive and i just want to make sure that i'm safe. >> statewide, hospitals are at 85% capacity and rising. >> i didn't have any covid patients a couple of weeks ago and now my whole service is filled with patients. >> reporter: dr. alexandra wick says covid patients coming now have more severe symptoms than those who came in earlier in the pandemic. >> i had a patient the other day tell me, you know, what can i do? he was so short of breath. it's hard because we're doing everything that we can for him. he's still very, very sick. >> reporter: nurse lanoway wants wisconsinites to get back to wearing masks and social distancing for everyone's sake.
7:11 am
>> patient comes in and they openly and willingly tell you that they've been out at the bars. and you think about all the people that were probably in that bar with them. and it's frustrating. we don't want to see people coming in here suffering and struggling. we want people to be safe and healthy. we want people to be home. >> resistance to covid safety guidelines is so strong here that citizens have sued to have them removed. a court has kept the mask mandate in place but last week a judge blocked the 25% capacity limitations on indoor dining, until yesterday when another judge kept those limits in place so the rules keep changing. >> it really is, adriana. but another reason to feel grateful for the frontline workers who are risking their lives to save ours. a big change has been announced to the final presidential debate scheduled for this thursday. it's all part of an effort to keep it more civil than it was last time. ed o'keefe is following this story for us. ed, what are the changes? can't wait to hear. good morning to you. >> good morning, gayle. this is something many will
7:12 am
like. others will not. and essentially it does this. now when a candidate is answering his question for an allotted two minutes the other candidate's microphone will be turned off. it's a potentially big change to what's essentially the last big turning point in the campaign with tens of millions of people potentially watching. 73 million watched the first debate. the president knows this. and last night on his way back here in washington, he told reporters he will be at the next debate. he called the rules change, quote, very unfair. >> because you didn't think you should have closed our country -- >> reporter: after a contentious first meeting that led to more than 70 interruptions by the president -- >> the question is -- >> the radical left -- >> will you shut up, man. >> who is on your list, joe? >> the nonpartisan commission on presidential debates is making a change. under new rules announced monday, president trump and joe biden will get two minutes to respond to questions posed by the moderator. during those two minutes, the only person whose microphone will be on is the candidate who has the floor.
7:13 am
both microphones will turn on again during an open discussion period and that should help avoid moments like this. >> he still refuses to even say anything to putin about the bounty on the heads of american soldiers. >> you son got -- >> no, no, no. >> and by the way -- >> my son -- >> mr. president, your campaign agreed to both sides would get two-minute answers uninterrupted. well, your side agreed to it. >> the commission discussed the changes with trump and biden campaign aides and believes the actions strike the right balance and that they are in the interest of the american people for whom these debates are held. the trump campaign had already raised objections earlier monday about the debate scheduled to be held at belmont university in nashville. last friday the moderator said the debate will coverage a range of subjects including foreign policy but also climate change, leadership, race in america and the pandemic. in a letter, trump campaign manager bill stepien asked debate organizers to recalibrate the debate to only a discussion on foreign policy.
7:14 am
claiming it had been led to believe that would be the only focus. in a statement, the biden campaign said the president is afraid to face more questions about his disastrous covid response and is more concerned with the rules of a debate than he is getting a nation in crisis the help it needs. remember, this was supposed to be the third presidential debate, but the second was canceled after the president refused to appear virtually in the wake of his covid-19 diagnosis. and we should reiterate, these rules will only turn off a candidate's microphone during two minutes that their opponent is considering a question. there will be free-wheeling discussion after that. but hopefully this change will provoke a listen more listening. >> the justice department says a unit of russian hackers accused of interfering with the 2016 election faces new criminal charges. the indictment accuses six military intelligence officers inside russia of launching some of the world's most costly cyberattacks. the hackers allegedly used
7:15 am
malware on a health care company in pennsylvania and cut off power to thousands of customers in ukraine. they are also accused of hacking computers at the 2018 winter olympics in south korea after russian athletes were banned for doping. the new indictment is seen as a warning to russia not to interfere in next month's vote. moscow denies the allegations. there are still questions this morning about a los angeles woman's 12-day ordeal stranded in utah's zion national park. rescue crews located holly cortier on wednesday after a massive search. they are saying very little about her condition. as carter evans reports, her family says she barely made it out alive. >> she was very dehydrated and they found out she had a concussion. and she couldn't move. >> reporter: holly courtier's family says the avid hiker was in such bad shape when rescuers found her in zion national park that she could barely speak.
7:16 am
jillian oliver says her sister became disoriented after hitting her head on a tree early into the trip. >> what i was told is she was injured and didn't remember much. and that she was just staying put and she was near a water spring and that she was getting very, very little water. they noticed she couldn't even open her mouth to drink. >> reporter: the 38-year-old was reported missing on october 8th after she failed to board a shuttle out of the park. in a statement, her daughter kailey chambers said she was without food the entire time in zion and unable to take more than a step or two without collapsing. but on monday, the national park service said in a statement that courtier was able to leave of her own capability with minimal assistance. they declined to provide further information about her condition. >> what that was like, those 12 days, waiting and not seeing or hearing anyone. >> we were told at the time when we called her to ask very little because of her condition.
7:17 am
and just to say we're here for you and we love you and just root her on and, you know, and that's what we basically did. and i'm sure she has some great story to tell everyone. but we don't quite know it yet. >> reporter: according to the national park service, law enforcement officers were acting on a tip from a park visitor when they found her in a thickly vegetated area along the virgin river. her family confirms she was released from the hospital the same day and flew back to california last night. >> i want to see her and give her a hug and tell her how much i love her because i was thinking about every holiday as a family and i just couldn't imagine anything without her. >> reporter: for cbs this morning, i'm carter evans. >> very glad she's been found. ahead -- an historic nasa mission today aims to collect a sample from an asteroid that's 4.5 billion years old. why scientists say this is like discovering a part of our universe's dn

7:45 am
but today there's a combination of two immunotherapies you can take first. one that could mean... a chance to live longer. opdivo plus yervoy is for adults newly diagnosed with non-small cell lung cancer that has spread and that tests positive for pd-l1 and does not have an abnormal egfr or alk gene. it's the first and only approved chemo-free combination of two immunotherapies that works together in different ways to harness the power of the immune system. opdivo plus yervoy equals a chance for more days. more nights. more beautiful weekends. more ugly sweaters. more big hugs.
7:46 am
more small outings. opdivo and yervoy can cause your immune system to attack normal organs and tissues in your body and affect how they work. this may happen during or after treatment has ended and can become serious and lead to death. some of these problems may happen more often when opdivo is used with yervoy. see your doctor right away if you have a new or worse cough; chest pain; shortness of breath; diarrhea; severe stomach pain; nausea or vomiting; dizziness; fainting; extreme tiredness; weight changes; constipation; excessive thirst; changes in urine or eyesight; rash; itching; confusion; memory problems; muscle pain or weakness; joint pain; flushing; fever; or tingling in hands and feet. these are not all the possible side effects. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions including immune system problems, or if you've had an organ transplant or lung, breathing, or liver problems. here's to a chance for more together time. a chance to live longer. ask your doctor about opdivo plus yervoy. thank you to all involved in our clinical trials.

8:01 am
new escalation in the president's attacks on dr. anthony fauci. >> sometimes he says things that are a little bit off. >> fauci says the way through this is with science. president trump was focused on attacking dr. fauci and other scientists. turning to ohio, folks here have been early voting for the past two weeks. now, why ohio? why is it so important? understand this. 14 times in a row the candidate who has won this state has also won the presidency. more than 58,000 new cases were reported yesterday. hospitalizations are on the rise in 38 states. resistance to covid safety guidelines is so strong here that citizens have sued to have them removed. this is something many will like, others will not. essential wily when a candidate answers his question for two minutes the other candidate's microphone will be turned off. a janitor in florida traveling what he calls his blue
8:02 am
collar limousine using a mop bucket and umbrella. >> is he on his way to a cleaning emergency or on his way to steal your girl? >> only in florida. >> only in florida. i like the guys ingenuity, he came one that and calls it the blue collar limo. it's working. >> he was riding around in new york, no one would look twice at him. >> absolutely true. check your calendar, if you do, you'll see we're two weeks away from election day and both president trump and democratic nominee joe biden are focused on locking down support in a handful of key swing states that will decide the race. ohio is both a swing state and the ultimate bellwether. the winner has gone to win the white house for each of the past 14 elections. >> that's where tony is this morning, talking to those coveted ohio voters, as he visits one, two, three key battleground states for our series we call "at america's crossroads." is he in dayton, the seat of
8:03 am
montgomery county, one of the nine ohio counties that president trump was able to flip from blue to red back in 2016. tony, good morning to you again. >> reporter: hey, good morning, guys. one big difference for the president this time around in ohio is he's not running only on promises. he's got a record. when it comes to promises and whether he's made good on them, the record is mixed. he delivered on a conservative supreme court justices, he renegotiated trade agreements and did cut taxes, those things are clear, but it's also clear that he has yet to replace the affordable care act, yet to launch his trillion-dollar infrastructure plan and a lot of stuff is open to debate so voters have to decide whether he's done enough. now the president was expected to do very well here after beating hillary clinton by eight points back in 2016, but this time around it is turning into a much tighter race.i taed with d democratic mayor, nan whaley, who thinks the president's problems are with women. >> if you've watched this past year, the failure of him to
8:04 am
manage covid has put an incredible stress on women who have children, who are trying to make ends meet. the real story i think of covid has just been about how women have to figure it out and they're also figuring it out that they can't have donald trump. >> reporter: now that said, president trump his standing with female voters who checked this out, it's still within a few points of where it was in 2016, so all is not lost for him and in fact both candidates still have some votes to win. i love this little bit of reporting. this may be the most consequential thing we have discovered on our road trip here. i can providence i will do it later in this half hour, that there are real live breathing undecided voters out there in america. they do exist. >> shocking. >> i'm thinking they call them unicorns, do invest a horn on the top of their head with rainbow colors? >> no. >> it's such an anomaly. >> no, just a regular man walking around, kettering, ohio,
8:05 am
taking his son to a football game. but he is rare. he is one of a very small population and our latest poll t is just 7% of americans who at this moment in time are still unsure of who they're going to pick in 2020. >> whenever i see that, tony, i always wonder what do they need to see to make up their mind when we're this close to election. >> there are people who like to wait to the last minute, want to hear everything. i understand that. >> also true. thank you, tony dokoupil. look forward to meeting mr. man a little bit later on. as coronavirus numbers surge across the country, the pesident is launching his most personal attack yet on our nation's most top infectious disease expert. during a campaign call yesterday president trump resulted to name calling in a rant against dr. anthony fauci. >> people are tired of hearing fauci and all these idiots, these people, these people that have gotten it wrong. every time he goes on television, there's always a bomb, but there's a bigger bomb
8:06 am
if you fire him. but fauci's a disaster. >> this follows a "60 minutes" interview sunday in which dr. fauci disagreed with the president on the importance of masks. yesterday fauci was asked about the president's comments but chose not to respond directly. >> i would prefer not to comment on that, and to just get on with what we're really trying to do, and what we're trying to do is to protect the health and the welfare and the safety of the american people predominantly, and ultimately of the world. >> the president's criticism comes as 40 states are seeing an increase in daily coronavirus cases. >> such a class act, dr. fauci. he seems to be saying i'm not even going to engage. i'm not playing with this. it's true. we're all done with covid but covid ain't done with us and we have to take it seriously. >> cases continue and they are rising. >> exactly right. people are still dying. ahead, we'll talk with country music star that's ashley mcbride.
8:07 am

uber and lyft want all the power. so, show them the real power is you. vote no on prop 22.
8:13 am
for a few days now we've been traveling through key battleground states, including ohio, where you find us now. it's all part of our series at america's crossroads. every four years the presidential hopefuls compete for the hearts and minds of ohio juans. they know they're competing with a second great love and that's football. five miles south of here in the suburb of kettering, we found the crossroads of america's passion and america's future. from the moment we arrived at a youth flag football game here, it was pretty clear, people have been watching the news. >> i'm tony dokoupil. >> how are you doing? >> we see a lot of signs for
8:14 am
trump and biden. >> if i would say presidents are temporary. >> brandon sock had a lot on his mind. >> reporter: which of the two presidential candidates this year would you say will build a better america for these kids? >> it's complicated because if you just take what you hear on a broad level, like i'm white, my son is african-american, so which candidate best represents our family? that's a difficult question. >> reporter: what is your decision going to come down to in these next if you weeks? >> for me, i have to balance how heavily i hold and cherish life. that's a buzz word, but my son's life matters. we've all talked about that. everyone's heard that. but the life, whether it be before birth, after birth, i don't think it's a clear issue. >> reporter: are you an undecided voter then? >> you could call it that. >> reporter: really?
8:15 am
i didn't know they existed at this late stage in the election. >> yeah. >> reporter: the shock of meeting an undecided voter was a sting. >> looks like there's a bee. >> that's me saying hello to a local ohio honey worker. we made our way over to watch the browns face off against the cowboys. >> nice catch, caden. >> reporter: tabitha hunter is almost as passionate as she is for her son caden. >> i was taking more of a democratic stance because i was in poverty and -- ah, interception. >> yeah, that's trouble. there we go. >> and i listened to my father and i voted for trump and i was proud that i did and i think he's done us good. you know, he said some stupid things, but that's trump. >> reporter: which helps explain why some people here tell us
8:16 am
they aren't thrilled with either of their options. >> to me, it's not going to matter one way or the other. >> reporter: you sound exhausted by politics? >> i am. i am very exhausted. i think it's a person representing the country. i don't think anything's going to change. >> reporter: on that point, folks on the other side of the field differ. >> the pandemic has taken over our lives and it didn't have to be this way. >> reporter: you don't like the division? >> yeah, i don't like the division and i don't like what it's done to people. people are cutting other people out of their lives because of politics. >> reporter: so it sounds like what you're both saying is to put the country on a better path, you like joe biden? >> yes. yes. >> reporter: you're hesitant to -- >> well, you know, i know this is going to be on tv and i don't necessarily want people to -- you know, i'm friends with people on both sides and i don't ever want that to be an issue with people.
8:17 am
i wish it was a better situation but, you know, i think that we definitely need change. that's all i can say really. >> reporter: so that last voter, guys, she really illustrates something that's going on here in the country, and that is our division is really as passionate and extreme as parents on different sides of the field this a youth sports match-up. i'll give you an example based on the polling. right now at this particular moment, the republican approval rating for donald trump and the democratic approval rating for donald trump, the gap between the two is wider than it has ever been in the history of modern polling. that is how divided we are at this particular moment in america. >> i get her reluctance to say anything because you're attacked no matter what you do. i do like caden's mom. we know where she stands about her presidential vote and her son. we'll talk with ashley mcbryde about co-hosting

tomorrow's 2020 cmt music awards. that's coming up next on "cbs this morning."

in our special series school matters, as parents are keeping their kids' education on track, many are focusing on their kids' mental health. since the start of the pandemic in march, 14% of parents reported behavioral health. relationships and your grades, too. dr. tara newlan says that may be needed now more than ever. >> take a deep breath. >> reporter: jet holmes starts every school day with a mantra. >> may i be happy. >> reporter: along with reading, writing, and math, jett is learning about feelings. it's all part of something called ruler, a curriculum used
8:21 am
at 2500 schools around the country. >> almost all affected are our attention. >> reporter: mark bracket developed it at yale university. >> emotions matter for everything. if we can't manage our feelings, it's hard to be creative and it's hard to focus. >> reporter: in his book, permission to feel, bracket outlines five steps for mastering emotions recognizing, understanding, labeling, expressing, regulating. >> emotions are a lot more complex than being like oh, i'm happy, i'm sad. >> the hardest part is recognizing how you feel. >> reporter: ruler uses a color coded tool to help students identify their feelings. we asked students from new york's lab school to show us how it works. >> when i'm feeling red i feel like an intense anger and frustration. >> when i'm feeling yellow i yfeel super happy and super energized. >> blue, sad and overwhelmed. >> green, tranquil and relaxed.
8:22 am
>> i am doing well. >> because of the pandemic, leslie gill and her sister lauren aren't able to practice as they usually do, with their classmates. >> you have to write about how you think the other person feels so then you see the different perspectives because you might be thinking that this person feels one way but it's actually they feel like the opposite. >> excited, included. >> it is very important for us to not assume how kids are feeling. we do that all the time. what research shows is we often make a lot of mistakes. >> why is social emotional learning so critical, particularly when we're living through a pandemic. >> we're feeling the strongest emotions we might have ever had before. my research with children shows they're frustrated, they're overwhelmed, anxious, bored, lonely. >> me and my brother will fight a lot, especially during
8:23 am
quarantine. stepping back and saying what i'm feeling and it's helped me. >> i've been struggling and stressed out. we're in a global pandemic. you don't have to be perfect. >> reporter: parents are also offered ruler training to reinforce what their children learn at school. >> first day out in over a month. >> reporter: it's helping jett and his family navigate the pandemic together. >> as a male, i was kind of raised to not be emotional. these kids are being introduced at a young age and they're able to define their feelings and their emotions and it took me years of therapy to be able to say that. >> reporter: what do you think parents could do a better job at in terms of talking to their kids about their emotions? >> the best way to make teenagers comfortable about opening up about their emotions is if you guys do the same so i hope parents, now that they can be vulnerable too.
8:24 am
>> we as parents don't have to have all the answers, we just have to be compassionate. we have to ask the questions and guide our children. >> tara, this is a great idea. i love what jett's parents say. what can parents do? isn't it hard for them to know what their kids are struggling and what can they do about that? >> absolutely, gayle. it's so important. we spoke to dr. bracket about that who you saw in the piece. there were a couple of things he recommended. the first is being a role model for your kids. even when you think they're not listening and watching you, they are. they're seeing how you react to youranxiety, stresses, fears, and mistakes. you can be vulnerable but you can teach them strategies that are healthy to deal with their feelings. the second is, as he said, don't assume what your child is feeling. behavior does not equal emotion. just because your child looks calm doesn't mean they may be feeling that way. just because your child storms out of a room and says, i hate
8:25 am
you, mom, it may be that they're not really angry. maybe they're disappointed at a failure that happened at s hool. maybe they had a fight with a friend. really important to sit down, talk with you . good morning. it's 8:25. pg&e said that new power shut offs could start as early as wednesday evening amid potential high winds and dry conditions. the utility said it expects to shut off power in 19 counties in northern california including six in the bay area. alameda could have the most customers affected. in san mateo starting today children ages five and older can get test for coronavirus. drive through testing is available at the county event center on saratoga drive it. opens at one this afternoon. stimulus talks nearing a deadline today in wall street is hanging on.

8:30 am
welcome back. >> seeing you in your rv. >> it's a thor rv. >> a judge is expected to rule in the next week.
8:31 am
>> virginia governor. residents argued the governor does not have the authority. the statue has been in place since back in 18 90. it's been the target of demonstrators, hit by graffiti. police brutality. it's been the focal point of all of the protests. the judge's ruling is going to be appealed to virginia's supreme court. this is one of the five confederate statues. the other four have been taken down by order of the mayor, lavar stoney. this one is on state property so it's subject to different legislation. we'll see what happens. it's almost like the civil war is on trial down there. >> to be continued. mine is about mexican painter freida kayla. you may know her from the movie. she's inspiring a whole new generation like arianna davis
8:32 am
who's digital director of o. it's called what would frida do? a guide to living boldly. this is arianna davis who's half black, half puerto rican. this is arianna signing the book when it first camein. got to be very exciting. she's a big long-time fan of frida's. she hopes it will inspire readers through life's obstacles. if there's yanyone who knew how to survive like frida, did i have in and don't worry what people would think. it's hard not to go along with what other people think. i do like that line of thinking. arianna went to her house in mexico city. it has a great title, la ca casa azule, the blue house.
8:33 am
i like to see that frida who has been gone since 1954, had a very tumultuous relationship, she is still inspiring people at this stage of life. >> she's still an iconic figure. >> she has a lot of physical and emotional pain we can learn from. >> tony, your turn. >> well, here at the rv table i've been thinking about what might be called the swag wars in american presidential politics. the merchandise, t-shirts, bumper stickers, lawn chairs, all of it. we've been seeing a lot of it as we travel around the country. i was curious, unscientifically, whether the sales of these signs could give us an early heads up of who might win the election. i went looking for numbers but then i stopped for the following reason, because back in 2016 cbs sunday morning did a piece on gill studios, which is a major bumper sticker producer. they do millions of them every
8:34 am
election season. they had a track record of the number of bumper stickers corresponding with the winner. if you had more, you're more likely to win. that streak ended in 2016. hillary clinton had a lot more bumper stickers sold, 2.4 million, compared to just 800,000 for president trump. so i think the lesson here is obviously she didn't become president. >> yeah. >> maybe the swag battles don't matter as much after all. we may be seeing more signs for president trump but that doesn't matter. >> signs don't vote, people do. >> that's what matters, november 3rd. you can vote before november 3rd. that's what matters. >> now i'm trying to figure out what happened to our stuff. the rv is not this clean. it was like magical elves came through. i have to give you a heads up you're lucky it's not
8:35 am
smell-o-vision. it's pungent. >> you're making it sound so attractive, tony. you're doing a good job on the road. where are you going tomorrow? >> tomorrow we are going to be in the battleground state of pennsylvania. i think we're heading up north on lake erie. i'm thinking it will be another beautiful cold day in 2020. >> lucky you. >> see you on the road tomorrow. singer songwriter ashley mcbryde spent more than a decade playing at dive bars before she became the country music stars like she is today with hits like "one night standards." "let's just stick to the one night standards." >> that song, it's a great song, earned her a nomination for female video of the year and cmt performer of the year at tomorrow's 2020 cmt music awards. she will co-host the awards ceremony on cmt. she joins us from nashville. ashley mcbryde.
8:36 am
great to see you. good morning, congratulations. what did you think when they asked you to co-host the show? >> i was nervous immediately. i've always wanted to host or present. i said yes, of course. i've been butterfliebutterflies >> what are you looking forward to most of the night? >> after meeting sarah highland over zoom doing read throughs and things so we can get this right, most looking forward to hosting with her. she is such a sweetheart and so good at this. she makes it easy to relax and calm down and slow down and read the teleprompter correctly. >> you already have your fair share of awards, and from what i understand, you keep them in a very special place. where do you keep them? >> they are safe. they are in my guest bathroom downstairs. they're in the hallway. everybody has to use that room at some point when they come over to the house and some people have actually picked up the awards off the shelf and
8:37 am
taken selfies with them and done speeches with them in the house. >> was this a very specific strategy? how do people react? >> yeah. when i would my very first award i placed it there. i put post-it awards, place acm here, place cmt here and tried to manifest. there's one award on the wall and a bunch of post-it notes. i know, i'll swap them out. >> the last time i talked to you, which was i think at the end of 2018. you were nominated for your first grammy nomination. a lot has changed since then, ashley. >> everything has changed since then. at the end of 2018 when you and i were sitting in that really cool dive bar, then things started taking off. all through 2019 it was just up, up, up, up. the momentum was insane. gold record. i got a number one in canada and i had never had a top ten before in the united states.
8:38 am
