we cannot take anything for granted. >> we are the movement of the future. >> the only thing that's left to do is vote. s. the cubs win the world series. good morning. welcome to "sunday today." i'm willie geist. hillary clinton entered the race on april 12th, 2015, nearly 19 months ago. donald trump rode into the race two months later. in 48 hours, the polls will be open. trump had a brief scare last night when secret service rushed
he returned shortly after. hillary clinton hit the stage with katy perry and is calling on lebron james today in ohio. what's the road to victory for each of them? we'll get into that with our crack team. and kommon, a great conversation about history, music and america. years? >> yes, we have gotten better. honestly with kids being able to see a black president, with that they can see that anybody can be president. much more is kommon, plus more with tom brokaw later in the shot. a moment tear scare for donald trump last night at a campaign event in reno, nevada, when the secret service had to rush him off the stage.
tower here in new york for us. hallie, good morning. >> reporter: hey there, willie pretty dramatic moment. 9 secret service sis somebody close to the stage yell something about a gun, yet no weapon was found. a man who was in the crowd who was holding up a sign, talked with our local station there in reno. he says he was trying to put out the republicans against trump banner when the crowd turned on him. listen tot >> all of a sudden because they couldn't grab the sign or whatever, bam, i get tackled by ought these people kicking me, grabbing me in the crotch and just beating the crap out of me. somebody yelled something about a gun. that's where things really got out of the hand. >> reporter: trump got back on stage a few minutes after the incident insisting he will never
a statement, but made no mention at what happened in a late-night rally in colorado. colorado just one of the many states that trump is trying to push hard in in this last stretch. all in all in the nest, next 48 hours, he's hitting eight state but what's the priority? right now if you look at new polling, it looks like he has a shot in iowa, where he's up seven points, but his campaign also believes michigan is another ri is their best shot to flip a blue battleground. he'll be there today. >> hallie, thank. hillary clinton is relying on famous friends to help her make the case to become the first woman elected president of the the united states, the clinton campaign on saturday with katy perry, and today she will stump on the trail with
>> reporter: they're focused, it's all hands on deck right now for the democrats. that was on display last night during the katy perry concert. it's just -- she is just one of the top entertainers and politicians lending their voices, and tonight she'll by join. clinton will be joined by lebron james. in terms of her ground strategy, let's look at the map where she'll be. she stops in ohio, new hampshire, north carolina, michigan and pennsylvania. that michigan stop raising some eye browse waust reason that hallie mentioned. it's a reliably blue state and donald trump is making a serious play for that state. if he were to win that could complicate her past to 270. the clinton campaign energized
latino turnout in a state of nevada. they're focused on a ground game. more than a million volunteers stretched out pounding the pavement, knocking on doors, thousands coming in right here to philadelphia from neighboring d.c. and new york to try to get out the vote. >> kristen welker another one of our grinders since the beginning. let's head up to our election center for a the map with moderator of "meet the press" chuck todd. good morning. good to see you. >> good morning. you have hillary clinton in this moment at 274 electoral votes. >> that's right. it is, and it shows you this is donald trump's frustration. look at this, he can win florida, north carolina, ohio, of course we have her given hi iowa.
electoral vote of nebraska, and he's six short. why michigan? michigan -- that's all he would need, but here's something i'm very focused on. look at what happens if she carries florida, she can afford to loose michigan. in fact she could afford to lose a colorado. she could afford to lose at nevada and still be over 270. the point i'm making, state, florida at the end of the day is going to end up being the most important state we're talk ugh about the math for trump is impossible without the state of florida. >> without spoiling things for the rest of the skin, is it fair to say when the poll closes in the northwest part of florida, the race could be over? >> we'll see. all the signs of hispanic
reporting to record turn out-of-the-. that surge, maybe that makes up for the stack nstagnant, but there are a lot of nervous republicans, as they're digging through the early vote. we don't know how these folks voted, but when you dethe demographic makeup, it has republicans very concerned that perhaps trump is going to come up >> chuck todd gassing up the map for us earlier this morning. we'll have more on "meet the press" coming up a little later this morning. former advisory to president bush and the 2010 mccain campaign, nicolle wallace, good morning. >> chuck already has, where do you think trump could steal a
he sweeps the battleground states which is a herculean feat -- we throw it out there, to win ohio, nevada, he's got iowa in his column, but historically it's difficult. he's doing the right thing. even if they does all that, he doesn't become president. i understand they have some encouraging news, but the clinton campaign disputes that they are really on their ins on states, so it makes it curious they're there protecting the states, but it's sort of the tale of two campaign analyses at odds at this point. >> the trump campaign is at least projecting confidence. >> right. >> you've been in this position. >> yes. the weekend before election day in 2008 you were projecting confidence in the mccain/palin --
i've done one of each, a win, a loan and a draw. on at least two of those three mornings i didn't know how this would turn out. i think this is probably most similar to to 4. i think the clinton campaign feels confident, but on election day when the first exit polls you gets your first indication of how things are turning, and you really don't know until you see how the day of vote in, which is why you see these frenetic almost manic campaign schedules from both sides. >> there's been talk about a hidden trump vote. there's no way to note before the votes are cast. do you think there's a possibility of surprise in some states? >> i am in a family divided by trump voters and clinton voters. my folks were at the reno rally.
a lot of republican women are quietly going to go to the ballot box and vote for her. maybe this is something i'm only seeing in my circles, but it speaks to what we've been talking about for many months. these are two candidates with a lot of baggage. who a a larger women vote, the fact that built this up for a generation in all 50 starkts offices, and donald trump has turned that over to the rnc, doesn't have much ground game at all? >> this is another test. presidential campaigns are great laboratories of political science. we'll know wednesday morning if all the traditional things matter or not, but he really doesn't have any of those traditional things -- yet he's got hillary clinton traveling to
for it. at least his side thinks that that is a competitive state. we'll know more wednesday morning where all those traditional tools, voter turnout, advertising, having a campaign staff, we'll know if all those things matter. if he wins anyway, they probably don't. if she wins decisively, they clearly still do. >> i will see you wednesday morning for post mortem and have lie on the couch with a of psychiatry. >> i'll need it. we tart at 7:00 eastern on tuesday. police say the man accused of kidnapping a woman and chaining her up in a storage container in south carolina has now confessed to at least four merz. sa sara daloff has more. >> reporter: saturday night
that he led deputies to two more possible graves. >> it is great news that we found out who brutally murdered four people of our society. >> this after authorities identified the remains initially found on a grave as belonging to charlie carver. many carver and his girlfriend she was found alive on his property. >> kyle's death of multiple gunshot wounds to the upper extremities. >> officials say colehepp, who 's charged with counts of murders, continues to cooperate. dylan is here now with a look at the weather. good morning. >> good morning. >> what's going on? >> beautiful weekend across most of the country.

i've been lurking inside you since you had chickenpox. i could surface anytime as a painful, blistering rash. one in three people get me in their lifetime, linda. will it be you? and that's why linda got me zostavax, a single shot vaccine. i'm working to boost linda's immune system to help protect her against you, shingles. zostavax is a vaccine used to prevent shingles in adults fifty years of age and older. zostavax does not protect everyone and cannot be used to treat shingles that may follow it. you should not get zostavax if you are allergic to gelatin or neomycin, have a weakened immune system or take high doses of steroids are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. the most common side effects include redness, pain, itching, swelling, hard lump warmth or bruising at the injection site and headache. it's important to talk to your doctor about what situations you may need to avoid since zostavax contains a weakened chickenpox virus. remember one in three people get shingles in their lifetime,
single shot zostavax. you've got a shot against shingles. when i first started working with capital one, single shot zostavax. my dad called them up and asked for "the jennifer garner card" which is such a dad thing to do. after he gave his name the woman from capital one said "mr. garner, are you related to jennifer?" kind of joking with him. and my dad was so proud to tell her, "as a matter of fact, she is my middle daughter". so now dad has the venture card, he's earning his double miles, and he made a friend at the company. go ahead! what's in your wallet? nice job dad. migraines aren't just bad headaches. they steal moments from my life. that's why i use excedrin.
