WITH THE WHITE HOUSE IN FIVE SEATS WITH A DONALD TRUMP PRESIDENCY WOULDN'T DENY IT. LET'S LOOK AT KEY RACES ON THE EAST COAST. NEW HAMPSHIRE IN A VERY TIGHT RACE AGAINST NEW HAMPSHIRE'S DEMOCRATIC GOVERNOR. IT'S BEEN A 1-2 POINT RACE FOR A COUPLE WEEKS NOW. I'M GOING TO GIVE IT TO SENATOR KABA. ALSO AN EXTREMELY TIGHT RACE, HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS HAVE BEEN PUMPED INTO THIS RACE. IT'S CLOSE BUT I'M GOING TO GIVE THAT TO TUMEY AS WELL. MOVING DOWN TO NORTH CAROLINA, ANOTHER TIGHT RACE BETWEEN REPUBLICAN SENATOR RICHARD BUR AND HIS CHALLENGER DEBRA RAST. I'M ALSO GOING TO GIVE THAT ONE TO THE REPUBLICANS. NEW HAMPSHIRE, PENNSYLVANIA, AND NORTH CAROLINA STAY RED. >> THE MIDWEST AND THE WEST IS WHERE THE DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO PICK UP THEIR SEATS. HE WAS SENATOR SIX YEARS AGO AND PRESIDENTIAL YEAR WITH MORE TURNOUT, IT LOOKS LIKE IT'S PROBABLY GOING TO GO TO RUS. ILLINOIS WAS ALREADY TURNED TOWARDS THE DEMOCRATIC. THAT'S GOING TO HELP THE DEMOCRATS IN THIS ELECTION. MISSOURI IS AN UNEXPECTED STATE FOR THE DEMOCRATS TO CHALLENGE IN. JASON SANDERS IS THE SECRETARY OF STATE OF MISSOURI AND HAS ALREADY WON A STATEWIDE ELECTION SHOWING HE COULD BEAT THE REPUBLICAN SIDE. FINALLY OUT IN NEVADA, A TERRY REED SEAT, THE DEMOCRATIC CHALLENGER, SHE HAS TO WIN THAT TO RETAIN THE ADVANTAGE THAT THE DEMOCRATS COULD POTENTIALLY GAIN FROM WINNING FOUR STATES THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY. >> THANKS, WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE RESULTS IN JUST A FEW MOMENTS. FOR NOW, WE'RE GOING TO HEAD BACK TO CHAD AND BRI. >>> WE'LL BE SCANNING SOCIAL MEDIA TO SEE WHAT'S TREPD TRENDING AND HOW PEOPLE ARE REACTING TO THE VOTE. WHAT'S THE MOOD LIKE OUT THERE AT THIS POINT? >>Reporter: THANKS, CAT AND FRANK. WELCOME TO THE MEDIA DESK, I'M CONNER BITTERMAN. >> AND I'M JACKIE BREGO. WE'LL BE WITH YOU THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT. WHAT CAN YOU TELL US ABOUT THIS COMPETITION? MAN: THE STUDENT WHO PREDICTED THE MOST OUT OF THE 30 RACES WILL RECEIVE TWO TICKETS TO THE INAUGURATION, AND $1,000 TO COVER EXPENSES. >> WHAT AN AMAZING PRIZE. I WISH WE HAD A CHANCE TO GET THAT. HOW MANY STUDENTS WERE INVOLVED? MAN: WE HAD 5 THOUSAND ADMISSIONS. >>Reporter: THERE ARE SO MANY CLOSE RACES OUT THERE AND IT'S SUCH A TIGHT KNIT ELECTION ACROSS THE BOARD, HOW IS IT GOING TO BE DETERMINED WHO WINS? MAN: I THINK THE CLOSEST RACES TO PREDICT IN THIS CONTEST WILL BE NEVADA, FLORIDA, AND THE PENTHOUSE RACES. >>Reporter: OUR RESULTS TEAM IS GOING TO BE WITH US FOR THE REST OF THE NIGHT GIVING US RESULTS. JOIN THE CONVERSATION AND FOLLOW US ON SOCIAL MEDIA. FOLLOW OUR TWITTER PAGE AND ANSWER OUR QUESTIONS AND YOUR TWEET MIGHT BE AIRED LATER. >>> WE'RE JOINED NOW BY ONE OF OUR STUDENT PRODUCERS AND ONE OF OUR PRODUCTION PARTNERS. >> THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR HAVING US AND THANK YOU FOR WATCHING TONIGHT. WE WANT TO THANK LAFAYETTE COLLEGE FOR PARTICIPATING IN THIS EXCITING EVENT. AS 18-35-YEAR-OLDS MAKE UP THE MOST VOTERS IN THE UNITED STATES, WE'RE VERY PROUD TO GIVE YOU A VOICE ON SOCIAL MEDIA DURING THIS ELECTION. WE'VE BEEN HONORED TO WORK WITH STUDENTS AS THEY'VE CREATED A FEW VIDEO SEGMENTS THAT YOU'LL SEE THIS EVENING. >> WE'VE SEEN 20 THOUSAND STUDENTS WRITING, SHOOTING, AND PRODUCERING THESE SEGMENTS. WE WANTED TO TAKE AN IN DEPTH LOOK AT WHAT FIRST TIME VOTERS WERE WORRIED ABOUT. FOR EXAMPLE, I TOOK AN IN DEPTH LOOK AT THE UNCERTAIN FUTURE OF THE HEALTH CARE INDUSTRY. WE LOOK AT THE ROLE OF DATA, THE CONCERNS OF SMALL BUSINESSES, AS WELL AS WHAT DEMOCRACY LOOKS LIKE AROUND THE WORLD. WE'RE VERY EXCITED FOR YOU TO SEE THE VIDEOS THROUGHOUT THE REST OF THE NIGHT. >> THANK YOU RACHEL, THANK YOU, LAURA. FOR MANY YOUNG PEOPLE, TODAY WAS THE FIRST TIME THEY VOTED IN AN ELECTION. >> WE CAUGHT UP WITH LAFAYETTE STUDENTS TO SEE HOW THIS ELECTION HAS SHAPED THEIR POLITICAL THOUGHTS. MAN: YES, I'M VOTING THIS YEAR. MAN: I'M VOTING BECAUSE IT'S MY DUTY AS A CITIZEN. WOMAN: THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT. >> THEY ARE FINDING ISSUES THAT MATTER TO THEM. WOMAN: I THINK THAT TWO OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUES IN THIS ELECTION ARE HEALTH CARE AND IMMIGRATION LAWS. MAN: IMMIGRATION. WOMAN: HEALTH CARE, GUN CONTROL. WOMAN: THE ECONOMY AND IMMIGRATION. MAN: TRADE AGREEMENTS. MAN: DEFINITELY INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS. WOMAN: OUR NATIONAL SECURITY AND OUR ECONOMY. >> AND EVEN THOUGH THIS IS THEIR FIRST TIME VOTING, THEY ALREADY HAVE SUGGESTIONS FOR CHANGE. WOMAN: IF I CAN CHANGE ONE THING ABOUT THE POLITICAL PROCESS, IT WOULD BE TO EDUCATE PEOPLE MORE, NOT ONLY ABOUT THE CANDIDATES BUT ABOUT THE PROCESS ITSELF. MAN: I WOULD HAVE THE CANDIDATES FOCUS MORE ON THE ISSUES AND LESS ON PERSONAL ATTACKS. WOMAN: PARTY LINES AND BEING MORE OPEN TO THIRD PARTY. MAN: WHO IS RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT. I WOULD CHANGE THAT. >> WHETHER DISSATISFIED OR EXCITED FOR THEIR FIRST VOTING OPPORTUNITY, LAFAYETTE STUDENTS HAVE PLENTY OF IDEAS FOR THE FUTURE OF AMERICAN POLITICS. >> OUR STUDENT COMMUNITY HAS A LOT TO SAY, NOT ONLY ABOUT THE CANDIDATES BUT ALSO ABOUT THE ISSUES. >> WE'VE DESIGNED SOMETHING WE CALLED THE BULL PEN TO GIVE STUDENTS A FORUM TO DISCUSS THE MANY THINGS ON THEIR MIND. WHAT'S THE FIRST TOPIC? MAN: THANK YOU, FRANK AND CAT. GOOD EVENING. WELCOME TO THE BULL PEN. DESIGNED TO GIVE YOU, THE VIEWER, ACCESS TO WHAT WE THINK AS YOUNG VOTERS. I'M BARKER AND I'LL BE ONE OF YOUR MODERATORS THIS EVENING. LET'S GET TO IT. WE HAVE JUST VOTED IN WHAT IS AN INCREDIBLY POLARIZED AGE. WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST IMPORTANT THING TO YOU THIS ELECTION? KATHLEEN, LET'S START OFF WITH YOU. WOMAN: SURE. FOR ME PERSONALLY, I THINK ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT THINGS IN THIS ELECTION IS PERSONALITY. WE HAVEN'T SEEN MUCH OF POLICY IN ANY OF THE DEBATES THAT I WATCHED. IT'S BEEN MORE ABOUT PERSONALITY SLINGING THAN ANYTHING ELSE. IN A LEADER, WE DO NEED A CERTAIN PERSONALITY TYPE. SO WHEN I CAST MY VOTE THIS MORNING, IT HAD A LOT TO DO WITH THEIR PERSONALITY MORE THAN THEIR POLICIES. >> INTERESTING. JOSEPH, WHAT IS IMPORTANT TO YOU THIS ELECTION? MAN: THIS ELECTION I'M NOT VOTING DUE TO AN AGE REQUIREMENT, I'M A COUPLE WEEKS TOO YOUNG. I UNDERSTAND THE IMPORTANCE OF STAYING IN THE MEDIA AND RELATED TO POLITICS AND STAYING ACTIVE WITH SOCIAL MEDIA AND THE WHOLE ABILITY TO STAY UPDATED WITH THE MEDIA. >> GREAT. KAYLA, WHAT ABOUT YOU? WOMAN: ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUES AND THE REASON I VOTED FOR THE CANDIDATE I VOTED FOR WAS THE IMMIGRATION AND SYRIAN REFUGEE ISSUE. EACH CANDIDATE WAS QUITE DIFFERENT SO I FELT LIKE I DECIDED TO VOTE FOR A CANDIDATE BASED ON THAT. >> GREAT. LUIS, WHAT ABOUT YOU? MAN: UNFORTUNATELY, I CAN'T VOTE. BUT ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUES I SEE IS ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE WHEN IT COMES TO YOUNG PEOPLE, MINORITY POPULATIONS, AND JUST IN GENERAL, ACCESSIBILITY TO IT. >> GREAT. IT'S REALLY INTERESTING TO GET ALL YOUR PERSPECTIVES ON WHAT'S IMPORTANT TO YOU. BUT I WANT TO HEAR ABOUT WHAT YOUR MOTIVATION AND STRATEGY IS FOR VOTING. HOW ARE YOU VOTING? WOMAN: PERSONALLY, I VOTED ON EXTENSIVE RESEARCH. I LOOKED UP NOT ONLY THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE BUT MY HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES CANDIDATE WHO IS RUNNING DOWN TO THE BOARD OF ED WHO WAS RUNNING IN MY HOMETOWN. I WANTED TO MAKE SURE I UNDERSTOOD EVERY CANDIDATE'S PLATFORM. IT WASN'T BASED ON ONE ARTICLE HERE OR THE GENERAL TREND OF LEANING LIBERAL. I WANTED TO MAKE SURE I WAS AS EDUCATED AS I COULD BE BEFORE I MADE THIS VOTE. >> I KNOW JOSEPH YOU'RE NOT OF AGE, BUT HOW DO YOU THINK YOU MADE AN IMPACT DURING THIS ELECTION? MAN: FOR THE PAST TWO MONTHS OF THE ELECTION AND DURING THE PRIMARIES AND THE PAST YEAR, WE'VE BEEN GOING DOOR TO DOOR IN PENNSYLVANIA AND MAKING SURE PEOPLE ARE GOING OUT THERE AND STAY INFORMED. DURING THIS DAY IN AGE, SOCIAL MEDIA HAS HAD A MAJOR IMPACT ON GETTING INFORMATION AND ACCESSING OTHER SOURCES. I'VE BEEN ABLE TO GO OUT THERE AND MAKE SURE PEOPLE ARE VOTING AND STAYING INFORMED IS THE NUMBER ONE THING. ISSUES LIKE THE -- THE CANDIDATES' RESPONSIBILITY THIS SEASON IS OF KEY IMPORTANCE. WE'VE HEARD A LOT OF THINGS ABOUT CANDIDATES AND MAJOR POINTS THAT THEY'VE BROUGHT APART. STAYING INFORMED IS KEY, I THINK. >> GREAT. AND KAYLA, WHERE ARE YOU FROM AND HOW HAVE YOU VOTED? WOMAN: I'M FROM NEW JERSEY AND I DECIDED TO VOTE IN NEW JERSEY. I'VE ONLY LIVED IN PENNSYLVANIA FOR ONE YEAR SO I FELT LIKE THAT'S WHERE I OWED MY VOTE TO AND I WANTED TO VOTE FOR MY HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVE. >> GREAT. SO THE THEME OF TONIGHT IS THAT WE CASTED OUR FIRST VOTE IN IN A POLARIZED AGE, HOW DO WE FEEL? WOMAN: SO UNEASY. I'M EXCITED. >> OKAY. WONDERFUL. I THINK THAT THAT'S ALL WE HAVE FOR NOW SO WE'RE GOING TO THROW IT BACK TO YOU, FRANK AND CAT. THANK YOU. >> MORE NUMBERS ARE COMING IN AS THIS HISTORIC ELECTION NIGHT SHAPES UP. OUR POLITICAL DESK IS STANDING BY TO SORT OUT THE LATEST RESULTS. FOR THAT, WE GO TO CARLA. >>Reporter: THANKS, FRANK. WE HAVE INTERESTING RESULTS THAT CAME IN. WE SEE THAT IN THE STATE OF VIRGINIA, MR. TRUMP IS LEADING WITH .3 AND 82 PERCENT OF THE VOTES HAVE BEEN TURNED IN FOR THIS STATE SO IT'S STILL PENDING. WE SEE IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA, MR. TRUMP IS ALSO LEADING AS WELL AS IN THE STATE OF OHIO. WHEN WE TURN TO THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA, WE SEE IT'S A TIE AS OF NOW. NOW WE'RE GOING TO TALK TO OUR STUDENT ANALYST. TELL US MORE ABOUT THE FOUR BIG STATES WHICH INCLUDE PENNSYLVANIA, OHIO, FLORIDA, AND NORTH CAROLINA. CHRIS, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA AND FLORIDA? MAN: THEY'RE INCREDIBLY IMPORTANT STATES. NORTH CAROLINA AND FLORIDA WILL TELL US IF MINORITIES ARE COMING OUT TO VOTE FOR HILLARY CLINTON. IT MAKES IT HARDER TO VOTE AND TARGETS MINORITIES. NORTH CAROLINA WILL SHOW IF SECRETARY CLINTON COULD GET HER BASE OUT TO VOTE. FLORIDA, ON THE OTHER HAND HAS A VERY DIVERSE POPULATION. IF SHE'S GOING TO WIN THE STATE, SHE'S GOING TO HAVE TO DRIVE OUT LATINOS IN THE STATE OF FLORIDA. THERE'S THIS INTERESTING COUNTY CALLED HILSBORO COUNTY IN TAMPA BAY. SINCE 1960, HILSBORO, THE WAY IT'S GONE IS THE WAY THE STATE HAS GONE. THAT'S A COUNTY WE'RE GOING TO BE LOOKING AT THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT. >> PENNSYLVANIA AND OHIO HAVE BEEN TWO BIG STATES. BOTH CAMPS ARE CONFIDENT THAT THEY'LL WIN THAT STATE. LAST NIGHT CLINTON HELD A RALLY IN PHILADELPHIA AND THAT BASICALLY UNDERSCORES THE IMPORTANCE OF PA. TRUMP HAS A WIDE APPEAL TO BLUE COLLARS, MORE WESTERN PA WHILE HILLARY CLINTON HAS MORE OF AN APPEAL IN EASTERN PA, PHILADELPHIA, AND THE URBAN CENTERS. THEY'RE GOING TO COME OUT LIKELY IN LARGE NUMBERS FOR HILLARY CLINTON. OHIO, EQUALLY AS IMPORTANT. NO REPUBLICAN PRESIDENT HAS EVER WON THE WHITE HOUSE WITHOUT WINNING THE STATE OF OHIO. VERY SIMILAR TO WESTERN PA, EASTERN OHIO AND CENTRAL OHIO. A LOT OF STEEL MINERS, BLUE COLLARS. THEY ALL SUPPORT TRUMP. I THINK THAT RIGHT THERE COULD PLAY INTO MR. TRUMP WINNING THE STATE OF PA AND OHIO. >> WELL, THAT'S VERY INTERESTING. NOW WE'RE GOING TO TURN TO OUR SENATE RACES. SORRY ABOUT THAT. BUT WE SEE THAT IN THE SENATE RACE IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, MAGGIE HAS -- HE'S LEADING BY .5 POINTS. ANDREW, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THIS? MAN: LIKE I SAID EARLIER, I'M QUITE SURPRISED THAT GOVERNOR HASPER IS AHEAD. IT'S GOING TO BE A VERY TIGHT RACE. NOT ALL THE RESULTS HAVE BEEN COUNTED. I STILL THIS ONE TO SENATOR AERA. SO LET'S NOT JUMP TO ANY CONCLUSIONS HERE. >> CHRIS, DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY ABOUT WHAT WE'RE SEEING IN THE BIG FOUR STATES? MAN: YEAH, IN THE SENATORIAL RACE IN PENNSYLVANIA, IT'S VERY IMPORTANT. IT'S SHOWN BY THE AMOUNT OF MONEY THAT'S BEEN DUMPED INTO IT BY OUTSIDE SPENDERS. IT'S UP TO $160 MILLION SPENT. THE PREVIOUS RECORD WAS $140 MILLION IN NORTH CAROLINA IN 2012. THE AMOUNT OF MONEY SPENT IS INSANE. AND YOU'RE ALSO GOING TO SEE IT BE MOSTLY NEGATIVE. THE CAMPAIGN HAS BEEN INCREDIBLY NEGATIVE. KATY IS NOT THAT STRONG A CANDIDATE. PAT'S CAMP IS REALLY GOING TO DRIVE HOME THAT LACK OF EXPERIENCE. ON THE OTHER HAND, PAT HAS HAD A TERRIBLE HISTORY WITH WOMEN VOTERS. SO IT'S REALLY A NEGATIVE CAMPAIGN, PRETTY DARK FOR A DEMOCRACY. I HAVE TO SAY IT'S PROBABLY GOING TO GO TO KATY. THE MONEY IS POURING IN HER DIRECTION. >>Reporter: IN THIS RACE THIS YEAR, WE SEE A LOT OF TIMES THERE'S A REPUBLICAN MAN RUNNING AGAINST A DEMOCRATIC WOMAN. IS THIS SOMETHING WE ATTRIBUTE TO HILLARY CLINTON RUNNING FOR PRESIDENT? THE WOMEN INCREASING. MAN: I THINK IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH IT. WE MENTIONED THE ILLINOIS CIVIL RIGHTS EARLIER. I'M NOT SURE IF IT'S A DIRECT CORRELATION BUT IT DEFINITELY PLAYS INTO THE WHOLE MALE, WHITE REPUBLICAN VERSES A MORE LIBERAL WOMAN. MAN: YEAH, THE FACTS SAY THAT DEMOCRATIC PARTY IS MUCH MORE DIVERSE RACIALLY AND GENDER WISE. YOU'RE GOING TO SEE MORE DEMOCRATIC SENATORS. YOU'RE GOING TO SEE CATHERINE IN NEVADA, SHE HAS TO KEEP HARRY REED'S OLD SEAT. AND KELLY -- MAGGI E, TWO WOMEN IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. I WOULD SAY IT'S DEFINITELY HAVING AN AFFECT WITH HILLARY CLINTON'S CANDIDACY FOR PRESIDENCY. >>Reporter: THANKS, WE'LL BE BACK WITH MORE RESULTS IN JUST A FEW MINUTES. WE'RE GOING TO HEAD BACK TO THE MAIN DESK WITH FRANK AND CAT. >>> TODAY, MILLIONS OF AMERICAN CITIZENS HAVE PARTICIPATED IN THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL ELECTIONS IN RECENT MEMORY. WHAT IS IT THAT SEPARATES THIS ELECTION FROM YEARS PAST? >>Reporter: THINK ABOUT THE LAST TIME YOU HEARD ABOUT THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION. WAS IT ON THE INTERNET? SOCIAL MEDIA IS ON THE RISE, POLITICIANS ARE HARNESSING DIFFERENT PLATFORMS TO REACH OUT TO THEIR AUDIENCE. SOCIAL MEDIA PROVIDES AN EASY WAY TO BROADCAST AN INCREDIBLE AMOUNT OF INFORMATION TO A LARGE NUMBER OF PEOPLE IN A SHORT AMOUNT OF TIME. THE INFORMATION SEEN ONLINE EDUCATES AMERICANS WHO WAS RUNNING FOR OFFICE AS WELL AS INFLUENCING CITIZENS TO GO VOTE. POLITICIANS GENERALLY USE SOCIAL NETWORKING SITES WITH TWO MAIN GOALS. THE FIRST IS TO MOBILIZE THEIR PARTY AND THEIR CAMPAIGN, SPREADING INFORMATION ACROSS THE WORLD WITH JUST THE CLICK OF A FEW BUTTONS. THE SECOND IS TO ENHANCE THE REPUTATION TO INCREASE THEIR POWER, INFLUENCE, AND AUTONOMY. SOCIAL MEDIA HAS BECOME MORE PREVALENT OVER THE PAST DECADE. THE PERCENT OF NEWS CONSUMERS ON FACEBOOK, TWITTER, AND INSTAGRAM HAS INCREASED IN THE LAST THREE YEARS BY 7-19 PERCENT. WHILE AN INCREDIBLE NUMBER OF SITES HAVE SEEN INCREASES IN THEIR NEWS RELATED VIEWERSHIP, FACEBOOK TAKES THE LEAD IN OVERALL USE. 44 OF THE 67 PERCENT OF ADULTS WHO HAVE FACEBOOK ACCOUNTS USE THE SITE TO GET NEWS. THE WIDE GENERATIONAL GAP BETWEEN SOCIAL MEDIA USERS CAN BE EXPLAINED BY THE RELATIVELY RECENT POPULARITY OF NETWORKING SITE. MOST SITES ARE DOMINATED BY YOUNGER PEOPLE. 58 PERCENT OF INSTAGRAM USERS ARE BETWEEN THE AGES OF 15-29 WHILE TWO PERCENT OF THE USERS ARE 65 AND OLDER. SIMILARLY, 18-29-YEAR-OLDS MAKE UP TWITTER USERS AND 31 PERCENT OF FACEBOOK. FOR PBS39 AND LAFAYETTE COLLEGE. >>> SO WE'VE SEEN HOW ALL MEDIA HAS SHAPED THE CANDIDATES, THEIR PLATFORMS AND THE ISSUES. >> TURNING BACK TO OUR MEDIA DESK NOW, ARE WE SEEING DIFFERENCES IN THE WAY THE RESULTS ARE BEING REPORTED TONIGHT? >>Reporter: WELCOME BACK TO THE MEDIA DESK. WE'RE GOING TO BE LOOKING AT DIFFERENT NEWS AND MEDIA SOURCES DETERMINING WHAT THEY FEEL ARE THE MOST NOTEWORTHY HEADLINES THROUGHOUT THE ELECTION. >>Reporter: CNN IS CURRENTLY REPORTING FIRST EXIT POLLS, VOTERS SCARE OR CONCERNED IF EITHER TRUMP OR CLINTON WINS. 58 PERCENT SAY THEY WOULD BELIEVE THAT IF TRUMP WINS, THEY WOULD BE CONCERNED WHERE AS 53 PERCENT WOULD FEEL CONCERNED IF CLINTON IS ON TOP. 39 PERCENT SAY THEY'LL BE EXCITED WITH A TRUMP PRESIDENCY WHERE AS 43 PERCENT WOULD BE EXCITED ABOUT ANOTHER CLINTON IN THE WHITE HOUSE. IT'S INTERESTING TO SEE HOW MORE PEOPLE ARE LESS EXCITED ABOUT THIS THAN THEY ARE AFRAID. >> YEAH, SOMETIMES IT COMES DOWN TO THE LESSER OF TWO EVILS WHEN PUNCHING THE TICKET FOR THE CANDIDATE OF YOUR CHOICE. >> SO TRUE, CONNER. >> RECENTLY BREAKING NEWS ON FOX, DONALD TRUMP IS PROJECTED TO WIN INDIANA AND KENTUCKY WHILE HILLARY CLINTON HAS TAKEN A VICTORY IN THE STATE OF VERMONT. REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE, DONALD TRUMP, IS EXPECTED TO WIN WEST VIRGINIA, KENTUCKY, AND INDIANA WHERE IS JUST SO HAPPENS HIS RUNNING MATE, GOVERNOR MIKE PENCE IS THE GOVERNOR. DONALD TRUMP CLAIMED THAT WE'RE GOING TO WIN A LOT OF STATES TONIGHT SO IT'S NICE TO SEE THAT DONALD TRUMP FEELS GOOD ABOUT HIS ELECTION. HILLARY CLINTON HAS A SMALL LEAD IN NORTH CAROLINA. IT'S TOO SOON TO TELL WHO IS GOING TO WIN. HILLARY CLINTON SAID WE NEED TO BRIDGE THE GAP BETWEEN THE TWO PARTIES. >> IT'S QUITE INTERESTING TO SEE HOW FOX AND CNN ARE REPORTING THIS ELECTION SO FAR. STAY WITH US AND FOLLOW US ON OUR SOCIAL MEDIA PAGES. BACK TO YOU, CAT AND FRANK. >>> THE DISCUSSIONS OVER MEDIA COVERAGE -- FOR AN UPDATE, CARLA IS STANDING BY. >>Reporter: THANKS, CAT. SO WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT THE STATES OF NEW HAMPSHIRE, PENNSYLVANIA, FLORIDA, AND VIRGINIA AND THE PRESIDENTIAL RACES. SO IN NEW HAMPSHIRE, IT'S A TIE RIGHT NOW AS FAR AS WE CAN SEE WITH 19 PERCENT OF THE VOTES BEING IN RIGHT NOW. AND IN PENNSYLVANIA, THERE'S STILL NOT ENOUGH INFORMATION FOR US TO KNOW BUT WE SEE THAT 12 PERCENT OF THE VOTE IS IN. IN FLORIDA, WE SEE THAT TRUMP IS UP BY 1.6 PERCENT AND 94 PERCENT OF THE VOTES ARE IN. AND IN THE STATE OF VIRGINIA, WE SEE THAT MR. TRUMP IS ALSO LEADING BY 2.TWO POINTS WITH 74 PERCENT OF THE VOTES IN. IN THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA, WE SEE THAT REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE BURR IS LEADING BY THREE POINTS WITH 38 PERCENT OF THE VOTES BEING IN. WE TURN TO PENNSYLVANIA, WE SEE THAT MCGINTY IS LEADING BY 3.1 PERCENT OF THE VOTE WITH 12 PERCENT OF THE POLLS BEING IN. IS THIS SURPRISING RESULTS THAT WE SEE IN THE PRESIDENTIAL AND SENATE RACES? MAN: NOTHING TOO SURPRISING SO FAR. I THINK LOOKING AT THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE, TWO SOMEWHAT SURPRISING STATES ARE NEW HAMPSHIRE AND VIRGINIA. NEW HAMPSHIRE IS A STATE THAT TRUMP SAID HE FELT CONFIDENT ABOUT, THE TRUMP CAMP SAID THEY FELT LIKE THEY COULD WIN BUT MOST POLLS HAVE CLINTON WINNING NEW HAMPSHIRE. NEW HAMPSHIRE WAS THE FIRST PRIMARY WHICH DONALD TRUMP WON. HE HAS A LOT OF SUPPORT UP THERE. EVEN SO, IT'S ONLY FOUR ELECTORAL VOTES, NOT GOING TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE. VIRGINIA IS A STATE TO GO BLUE. CLINTON'S VICE PRESIDENT IS FROM VIRGINIA. I THINK WHEN SHE PICKED TIM KAINE, A LOT OF DEMOCRATS AND SECRETARY CLINTON HERSELF WOULD HAVE ASSUMED THAT VIRGINIA WAS A SHOE IN TO GO BLUE BUT WE'LL SEE, IT MAY GO RED. MAN: A HUGE STATE IS FLORIDA. HONESTLY, MR. TRUMP NEEDS TO WIN FLORIDA TO WIN THIS ELECTION. FOR FLORIDA TO HAVE 93 PERCENT OF THE VOTES IN AND MR. TRUMP TO BE UP 1.6 PERCENT, HE'S HUGE, AS HE WOULD SAY. I STILL SEE SECRETARY CLINTON WINNING. I BELIEVE SHE HAS PENNSYLVANIA IN THE BAG. PHILADELPHIA HAS SO MANY VOTES AND HONESTLY THEY'RE ALL GOING TO SECRETARY CLINTON. FOR MR. TRUMP TO GET FLORIDA, THAT'S THE FIRST STEP OF THE PRESIDENCY. WITH FLORIDA, HE HAS A LEGITIMATE SHOT OF BEING THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. >>Reporter: THAT'S VERY INTERESTING. ARE THERE ANY OTHER STATES WE WANT TO FOCUS ON? MAN: THERE ARE OTHER STATES BUT LET'S LOOK AT SOME OF THE SENATE RACES. NEW HAMPSHIRE GOING TO BE A TIGHT ONE. I THINK IT'S TOO EARLY TO MAKE ANY DEFINITIVE CONCLUSION WITH THAT RACE. IN P.A, THE MOST EXPENSIVE SENATE RACE IN AMERICAN HISTORY. MCGINTY, A LOT CRITICIZED HER FOR NOT BEING A GREAT SENATOR. I'M FROM PENNSYLVANIA MYSELF, I THINK BASED OFF A LOT OF THE CLIMATE I SEE IN P.A, I THINK PEOPLE ARE HAPPY WITH HIS TENURE AS SENATOR AND I THINK HE'LL RETAIN THAT SEAT. MAN: IN NORTH CAROLINA, IT'S A VERY TIGHT RACE. RICHARD BURR HAS NOT DISTANCED HIMSELF FROM MR. TRUMP. KELLY SAID SHE WOULD NOT BE VOTING FOR DONALD TRUMP AND INSTEAD WROTE IN AN INDEPENDENT CANDIDATE. RICHARD BURR IS TITLE RELATED TO MR. TRUMP. A BIG DEMOCRAT IN A SWING STATE. SHE HAS A DECENT CHANCE OF WINNING. >>> WHAT ARE WOMEN IN AMERICA SAYING ABOUT THIS HISTORIC RACE AND THE IMPACT IT'S HAD ON THEM? >>Reporter: THE UNITED STATES IS OFTEN RESEARCH REFERRED TO THE LAND OF OPPORTUNITY. WOULD YOU BELIEVE THAT THE U.S. RANKS 97TH IN THE WORLD FOR ITS REPRESENTATION OF WOMEN? WOMAN: NATIONALLY, WE HAVE JUST UNDER 20 PERCENT OF REPRESENTATION OF WOMEN IN THE U.S. CONGRESS AND IN PENNSYLVANIA, IT'S EVEN LESS. UNDER 19 PERCENT. >>Reporter: WOMEN HOLD 84 OF 400 SEATS IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. WORLD WIDE OF THE 179 HEADS OF GOVERNMENT, ONLY 14 ARE WOMEN. THE NATION BOASTING THE HIGHEST REPRESENTATION OF WOMEN, RUANDA. SO IN THE UNITED STATES, WHAT STOPS WOMEN FROM RUNNING FOR OFFICE? WE POSED THAT QUESTION TO PENNSYLVANIA'S STATE SENATOR. WOMAN: MOST WOMEN DON'T THINK ABOUT THEMSELVES FOR RUNNING FOR OFFICE, THEY THINK ABOUT OTHER ROLES AND PROFESSIONS. >>Reporter: ONCE YOU ARE A WOMAN CANDIDATE, THERE ARE CHALLENGES. IT'S HARDER TO RAISE MONEY, I DON'T CARE WHAT ANYBODY SAYS, IT'S HARDER TO RAISE MONEY AND IT'S HARD FOR WOMEN TO ASK FOR MONEY. >>Reporter: COULD A FEMALE PRESIDENT CHANGE THE TRAJECTORY OF WOMEN IN POLITICS? WOMAN: I'D LIKE TO SAY IT WOULD BE ENORMOUS BUT I THINK IT WOULD PROVIDE INCREMENTAL CHANGE. BUT IT WILL SIGNIFY TO WOMEN THAT THEY CAN HAVE LIMITLESS AMBITIONS. >>> THESE ARE THE KINDS OF ISSUES EVERYONE HAS BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS FALL. >> FOR MORE ON THE DISCUSSIONS, WE GO BACK OVER TO THE BULL PEN, THIS TIME MODERATED BY CAMERON. >>Reporter: THANKS, FRANK AND CAT. WELCOME, GUYS AND WELCOME BACK TO THE BULL PEN. WELCOME, GUYS. IN THIS ROUND, WE'RE GOING TO BE TALKING ABOUT THE ISSUE OF IMMIGRATION. IT'S BEEN A HOT BUTTON TOPIC THROUGHOUT THE ELECTION CYCLE. BRENDA, I'LL START WITH YOU. WOMAN: I DEFINITELY THINK THAT IMMIGRATION HAS BEEN A PROBLEM. THERE ARE A LOT OF ISSUES SURROUNDING IT AND THIS ELECTION HAS BROUGHT UP A LOT OF STIGMA. SOME THINGS THAT I'M VERY CONCERNED ABOUT WITH SOME POLICIES, I DEFINITELY AGREE WITH A LOT OF HILLARY CLINTON'S POLICIES AS A FIRST GENERATION IMMIGRANT WHICH MEANS MY MOTHER IS AN IMMIGRANT FROM MEXICO. I UNDERSTAND THE STRUGGLES THAT A LOT OF IMMIGRANTS FACE AND THE HARDSHIPS THEY FACE WHEN IT COMES TO TRYING TO BECOME A CITIZEN IN THE U.S. SOME OF THE POLICIES THAT I DEFINITELY THINK THAT SHOULD BE PASSED ARE DOCA, AN OPTION FOR CHILDREN ACT WHICH ESSENTIALLY ALLOWS THEM TO GO TO COLLEGE HERE, AND ALLOWS THEM TO GET AN EDUCATION, AND ALLOWS THEM TO GET A WORK PERMIT AND ALLOWS THE PARENTS TO STAY IN THE U.S. ALTHOUGH THEY'RE NOT EXACTLY TITLED AS CITIZENS, IT SHIELDS THEM FROM DEPORTATION WHICH IS VERY IMPORTANT BECAUSE I, MYSELF, AND A LOT OF FAMILY MEMBERS AND FRIENDS DEAL WITH A LOT OF PROBLEMS EVERY DAY. WOMAN: I AGREE WITH YOU, IMMIGRATION IS A CONTROVERSIAL ISSUE IN THE UNITED STATES FOR A WHILE NOW ONLY BECAUSE AMERICANS ARE WORRIED ABOUT ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS OBVIOUSLY ENTERING THE UNITED STATES. WITH THAT BEING SAID, I HAVE TO AGREE MORE WITH HILLARY CLINTON'S POINT OF VIEW WITH ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS BECOMING CITIZENS RATHER THAN TRUMP'S VIEW NOT LETTING THEM IN AT ALL. HUMANS SHOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY, NO MATTER WHERE THEY'RE FROM TO HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE AN AMERICAN CITIZEN. MAN: YEAH, THE QUESTION WHAT TO DO WITH IMMIGRANTS ONCE THEY'RE ALREADY HERE IS A HUGE ISSUE. THE DISPARITY BETWEEN THE TWO CANDIDATE'S POLICIES. I'LL JUMP TO YOU ON THE ISSUE, NOT NECESSARILY ABOUT IMMIGRATION BUT RATHER ABOUT THE REFUGEE CRISIS THAT'S BEEN GOING ON. I KNOW TRUMP AND CLINTON HAVE VERY DIFFERENT POLICIES. WOMAN: PERSONALLY, WE NEED TO REFER TO THEM AS PEOPLE. THEY'RE VERY MARGINALIZED AS OTHERS AND THAT'S VERY DETRIMENTAL TO THE WORLD, NOT JUST THE UNITED STATES. WE NEED TO SIT HERE AS A COUNTRY AND SAY ARE WE GOING TO STAND BY WHILE OTHER PEOPLE IN THE WORLD ARE HURTING CHILDREN AND WOMEN AND THE ELDERLY ARE HURTING IN THIS CRISIS. I DON'T THINK AMERICA'S BEEN THE COUNTRY TO SAY NO BEFORE AND I DON'T KNOW WHY WE'RE TAKING THAT STANCE. >>Reporter: THAT'S DEFINITELY A GOOD POINT. MANY PEOPLE ARE ALSO CONCERNED WITH THE POTENTIAL SECURITY RISK THAT COME ALONG WITH ALLOWING THE REFUGEES INTO THE COUNTRY. I WAS WONDERING IF YOU WANT TO EXTEND THAT POINT? IMMIGRANTS HAVE COME IN AND CAUSED DISRUPTION THAT WE SAW IN 9/11. WE HAVEN'T SEEN THAT. AND THE RESEARCH DOES SHOW THAT THESE PEOPLE COME INTO THE UNITED STATES ARE COMING FOR ECONOMIC REASONS AND NOT TO ENGAGE IN TERRORISM. SO THERE'S NO EVIDENCE, IN MY OPINION TO HAVE THOSE KIND OF EA FEARS. >>Reporter: THAT'S A GOOD POINT TO MAKE. LET'S GO INTO THE IDEA OF VISAS. THEIR POLICIES DIFFER IN REGARDS TO ALLOW PEOPLE INTO THE COUNTRY TO WORK AND/OR STUDY. I KNOW THIS PERSONALLY AFFECTS YOU SO LET'S START WITH YOU. WOMAN: I THINK THE WHOLE ISSUE OF THE VISA PROGRAM HAS NOT BEEN VERY WELL THOUGHT OUT IN THIS ELECTION. THERE'S BEEN A LOT OF NAME CALLING MOSTLY FROM THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN. YOU HAVE THIS SITUATION WHERE PEOPLE ARE SAYING IMMIGRANTS -- PEOPLE IN THE H1V PROGRAM ARE COMING HERE AND STEALING JOBS. LOOK WHAT THESE PEOPLE ACTUALLY BRING TO THE TABLE. THE NEGATIVE IMPACTS THEY MIGHT HAVE, FOR EXAMPLE, IN SILICON VALLEY, A LOT OF ENGINEERS AROUND THE WORLD. AND NOT ONLY ARE THEY DOING THAT, BUT THEY'RE ALSO ENGINEERS FOR ECONOMIC GROWTH IN THIS COUNTRY, THEY HAVE INNOVATION IN SILICON VALLEY AND OTHER AREAS IN THE U.S. ECONOMY. >>Reporter: THAT'S DEFINITELY A GREAT POINT. UNFORTUNATELY THERE'S A LOT MORE TO BE SAID ON THIS TOPIC BUT WE ARE RUNNING OUT OF TIME SO I WANT TO THROW IT BACK TO CAT AND FRANK. >>> TO MAKE IT INTO TODAY'S CAMPAIGN ARENA, YOU HAVE TO HAVE STRONG, ACCURATE DATA AT YOUR FINGER TIPS. >> LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT HOW BIG DATA CAN LEAD TO BIG VICTORIES AT THE POLL. >>Reporter: CANDIDATES ARE APPEARING EVERYWHERE. THESE ADS MAY SEEM RANDOM BUT YOU WERE PROBABLY IDENTIFIED AND TARGETED. WHEN WE ASKED A GOVERNMENT RELATIONS EXPERT TO EXPLAIN THE DATA IN CAMPAIGNS. MAN: IT'S A TOOL THAT CAN ALLOW THE LESS FUNDED CANDIDATE TO SPEND MONEY MORE EFFECTIVELY AND TARGET MORE EFFECTIVELY AND GO OUT AND GET THEIR VOTERS TO THE POLL. >>Reporter: THE MIT TECHNOLOGY REVIEW HAS CREDITED BARACK OBAMA'S 2012 CAMPAIGN HELPING RAISE RECORD BREAKING DONATIONS AND EVENTUALLY WIN REELECTION. MAN: EVERY LEGITIMATE CAMPAIGN WILL NOW HAVE TO INCORPORATE MEANINGFUL BIG DATA OPERATIONS. >>Reporter: CAMPAIGNS FIND NEW AND MORE EFFECTIVE WAYS TO INTERACT WITH VOTERS. WHILE DOOR TO DOOR KNOCKING AND PHONE BANKS ARE STILL BEING USED, NEW TOOLS ARE BEING DEVELOPED. ONE OF THESE TOOLS IS AN ADDRESSABLE ADVERTISEMENT. MAN: IT'S A RELATIVELY NEW TECHNOLOGY AND WHAT IT ALLOWS IS AN INDIVIDUAL AD TO BE TARGETED TO AB TARGETED TO AN INDIVIDUAL HOUSE. BASED ON THE SPECIFIC VIEWERS IN THAT HOUSE AND BASED ON WHERE THEY LIVE. >>Reporter: HE SAYS SOON CAMPAIGNS COULD IMPLEMENT NEWER STRATEGIES TO BETTER INTERACT WITH VOTERS. MAN: IT WILL BE STRATEGIES THAT -- TECHNIQUES AND TOOLS THAT WILL DEVELOP AND MAKE CAMPAIGNS MORE COMPETITIVE. THERE'S ALWAYS SOMEONE TRYING TO LOOK FOR A DIFFERENT WAY TO APPROACH AND HAVE A DIFFERENT EDGE AND THEN IT WILL BE ADOPTED MAIN STREAM AND THEN WE'LL START A NEW CYCLE OF INNOVATION AND EXECUTION. >>> THIS ELECTION HAS SHOWN US HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO HAVE A STRONG SOCIAL MEDIA PRESENCE. BECAUSE THAT'S WHERE DECISIONS AND INFLUENCES ARE MADE AND DEVELOPED. >> WE'RE TRACKING WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING TONIGHT ON OUR MEDIA DESK. WHERE WE FIND JACKIE AND CONNER WITH THE LATEST. >>Reporter: WELCOME BACK TO THE MEDIA DESK. IN THIS SEGMENT, WE'RE GOING TO BE ANALYZING AND DISCUSSING DIFFERENT TWEETS CURRENTLY TRENDING THROUGHOUT THE ELECTION. WHAT THE PEOPLE WANT THE VIEWERS TO SEE. >> WE TURNED TO TWITTER TO SEE WHAT'S CURRENTLY TRENDING RIGHT NOW. SOME OF THE TOP TRENDS ARE #MYVOTE2016 AND #ELECTIONNIGHT. >> FLORIDA RESULTS WITH 91 PERCENT@DONALD TRUMP OVER@HILLARY CLINTON WITH A SMALL MARGINAL LEAD. #ELECTIONNIGHT #FOXNEWS 2016. >> ATTENTION PA VOTERS, IF YOU'RE IN LINE BY 7:00 P.M., STAY IN LINE. >> IF YOU'RE IN LINE TO VOTE RIGHT NOW, PLEASE REMAIN. AS LONG AS YOU'RE IN LINE BY 8:00 P.M., YOU CAN CAST YOUR VOTE. #STAYINLINEPA >>> FOR EXAMPLE, CORNER STONE CHURCH WAS A PLACE WHERE MANY LAFAYETTE STUDENTS WENT TO VOTE TODAY. PEOPLE WERE TOLD TO STAY IN LINE AFTER 8:00 P.M. MAN: THEY HANDED OUT FREE PIZZA MAKING SURE EVERYONE HAD A GREAT EXPERIENCE GOING OUT TO VOTE. >> EVERYONE COME OUT AND VOTE RIGHT NOW. >>> #VOTE2016, #MYVOTE2016, # VOTETRUMP. >>> ONE CAN ONLY HOPE THAT TONIGHT'S ELECTION RESULTS TRULY REFLECT WHO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WANT TO BE THEIR PRESIDENT. >> NEXT TIME WE WANT TO HEAR FROM YOU. RESPOND TO US AND RESPOND TO US ON TWITTER. >>> WELCOME FROM OUR PRODUCTION PARTY IN CBS39. >> THANK YOU FRANK AND CAT. THANK YOU FOR WATCHING. WE'RE PROUD TO PRESENT A STUDENT PRODUCED BROADCAST CALLED FIRST VOTE IN A POLARIZED AGE. IT'S A PRODUCT OF THOUSANDS OF HOURS OF WORK FROM STUDENTS ACROSS THE CAMPUS. MAN: I CAN TELL YOU FROM JUST BEING ON LAFAYETTE COLLEGE CAMPUS THAT PEOPLE ARE REALLY PASSIONATE ABOUT THIS ELECTION. WOMAN: THIS IS THE NEXT GENERATION OF VOTERS AND THEY HAVE A LOT OF THOUGHTS ON THIS ELECTION THAT CAN CHANGE THE AMERICAN POLITICS. MAN: THESE ARE THE FUTURE LEADERS. THESE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO BE FORCED TO STALL SOME OF THE GREAT ISSUES THAT -- I THINK IT'S A NICE WINDOW INTO WHAT YOUNG PEOPLE ARE THINKING AND DO WE HAVE ANY HOPE THAT THEY'RE GOING TO BE ABLE TO CONFRONT AND HAVE THE TOOLS TO DEAL WITH THESE MASSIVE CHALLENGES FACING US. WOMAN: THIS GENERATES EXCITEMENT AND THAT MAKES IT FUN FOR US AND MORE INTERESTING FOR THEM. WOMAN: THE ELECTION NIGHT BROADCAST IS THE KEY EVENT FOR A POLICY STUDIES EDUCATION. IT'S WHAT EVERY POLICY STUDIES MAJOR LOOKS FORWARD TO THAT THEY WOMAN: WE HAVE STUDENTS FROM I THINK ALMOST EVERY DISCIPLINE AND WE HAVE 7 CLASSES WORKING ON IT RIGHT NOW FOR A TOTAL OF MORE THAN 120 STUDENTS. WOMAN: WHAT'S GREAT ABOUT HAVING SO MANY DIFFERENT STUDENTS WORK ON THIS IS THAT YOU HAVE SO MANY DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVES AND AREAS OF EXPERTISE. WORKING ON A TEAM IS ABSOLUTELY THE BIGGEST THING YOU GET OUT OF THIS. MAN: WHEN WE'RE TRYING TO PUT ON A BROADCAST LIKE THIS, THERE ARE A LOT OF MOVING PARTS. AT THE END OF THE DAY, IT HAS TO GET DONE. THERE'S NO EXTENSION, THE ELECTION WILL WAIT FOR US. MAN: YOU HEAR FROM STUDENTS LATER ON AND SAY THAT WAS THE BEST EXPERIENCE IN MY FOUR YEARS OF LAFAYETTE COLLEGE AND I COULDN'T HAVE GOTTEN THAT ANYWHERE ELSE. >>> WE'RE BROADCASTING LIVE FROM THE STUDENT CENTER. THESE BROADCAST EXPERIENCES STRENGTHEN MY TEAM WORK SKILLS. YOU WORK WITH A BUNCH OF OTHER PEOPLE TO GET A STUDENT PRODUCED BROADCAST. MAN: IT'S A GREAT LEARNING EXPERIENCE. NOT ONLY DO YOU LEARN ABOUT THE ELECTION ITSELF BUT YOU GET TO WORK IN TEAMS LIKE NEVER BEFORE. WOMAN: I WOULD DEFINITELY SAY THAT I'VE STRENGTHENED MY COLLABORATION SKILLS BECAUSE I'VE WORKED WITH A LOT OF DIFFERENT STUDENTS FROM A LOT OF DIFFERENT BACKGROUNDS AND BE ABLE TO WORK WITH THEM AND MAKE THIS BROADCAST COME TO LIFE, IT'S A REALLY AWESOME EXPERIENCE. WOMAN: IT COMES UP ONCE EVERY FOUR YEARS. IT ALLOWS US TO LET STUDENTS BE TRULY DISCIPLINARY. JUST YESTERDAY A STUDENT CAME UP TO ME AND SAID THIS TIES WITH MY ECONOMIC COURSE AND MY POLITICAL SCIENCE COURSE AND IT'S BRINGING EVERYTHING TOGETHER. WOMAN: JUST FROM A BROADCAST PERSPECTIVE, I LEARNED HOW TO USE A CAMERA AND I FEEL COMFORTABLE WITH IT AND I FEEL COMFORTABLE ENOUGH TO SHOW OTHER PEOPLE HOW TO USE IT. YOU LEARN AS YOU GO AND YOU PICK UP EVEN MORE CONFIDENCE THE MORE BROADCASTING YOU DO. WOMAN: BEING IN A CLASS LIKE THIS, I CAN DEFINITELY APPLY WHAT I'VE LEARNED HERE TO THE FUTURE. >>> MORE POLLS ARE CLOSING. CARLA, CAN YOU GIVE US SOME UPDATES ON RESULTS? >>Reporter: YES, I CAN. WE HAVE NEW RESULTS COMING IN. IN OHIO, WITH 50 PERCENT OF THE VOTES BEING REPORTED, MR. TRUMP IS LEADING WITH 51.70 PERCENT OF THE VOTE. WITH HILLARY CLINTON TRAILING BEHIND WITH 44.20 PERCENT OF THE VOTE. ANDREW, WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THIS IN OHIO? MAN: YEAH, CARLA, THINGS ARE LOOKING UP FOR MR. TRUMP. THE NEW YORK TIMES SAYS DONALD TRUMP HAS A 54 PERCENT CHANCE OF WINNING AS OPPOSED TO EVERY POLL SAYING HILLARY CLINTON WILL WIN. WE HAVE TO THINK IT'S CRUCIAL FOR THIS ELECTION FOR OHIO FOR DONALD TRUMP TO WIN. HILLARY CLINTON IS DOING PRETTY WELL IN THE MORE URBAN AREAS. HILLARY CLINTON, HER VOTERS ARE TURNING OUT AND SHE'S HANDLING THOSE AREAS. HOWEVER, WHAT DONALD TRUMP IS GETTING IS THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE STATE GEOGRAPHICALLY. A LOT MORE RURAL AREAS AND HE HAS THE APPEAL WITH STEEL MINERS AND BLUE COLLAR WORKERS. >>Reporter: WITH GEORGIA, WE HAVE 38 PERCENT OF THE VOTES REPORTED, AND DONALD TRUMP IS LEADING WITH 59 PERCENT OF THE VOTE. AND WE SEE THAT HILLARY CLINTON IS TRAILING BEHIND WITH 38 PERCENT OF THE VOTE. CHRIS, WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE STATE OF GEORGIA? MAN: WE'RE GOING TO BE WAITING ON ATLANTA. ATLANTA IS A PLACE FOR EDUCATED, YOUNG PEOPLE TO MOVE TO. THAT CITY SINGLE HANDILY COULD BRING HILLARY CLINTON TO WINNING THE STATE. I IT'S AN INTERESTING STATE. WE'RE GOING TO WAIT ON SAVANNAH TO BRING IN MORE. WE'RE WAITING ON THOSE TWO CITIES TO BE ABLE TO CALL THE STATE. HOWEVER WITH THE VOTES REPORTED, DONALD TRUMP HAS A REALLY BIG LEAD, IT'S LOOKING LIKE IT'S GOING TO GO DONALD TRUMP BUT HILLARY CLINTON, YOU CAN'T COUNT HER OUT UNTIL ATLANTA IS REPORTED. >>Reporter: WHEN WE TURN TO THE STATE OF VIRGINIA, WE SEE WITH 85 PERCENT OF THE VOTES REPORTED, DONALD TRUMP IS ALSO LEADING WITH 48 PERCENT WITH HILLARY CLINTON TRAILING BEHIND WITH 46 PERCENT OF THE VOTE. NOW WE'RE GOING TO TURN TO ANDREW TO HEAR ABOUT THE STATE OF VIRGINIA. MAN: YEAH, CARLA, PRETTY BIG DEVELOPMENTS COMING OUT OF THE STATE OF VIRGINIA AS COMPARED TO 2012 WITH MITT ROMNEY, DONALD TRUMP IS DOING PHENOMENAL. HILLARY CLINTON'S RUNNING MATE A GOVERNOR FROM VIRGINIA, HE HAS A LOT OF TIES IN VIRGINIA, IT'S PRETTY SHOCKING TO ME, AND I'M SURE MORE SHOCKING TO THE CLINTON CAMPAIGN THAT THE STATE RIGHT NOW IS LEADING TOWARDS DONALD TRUMP. MCMULLEN'S POLLS ARE ODDLY HIGH. HE PUT ALL HIS MONEY INTO UTAH SO I DON'T KNOW WHY VIRGINIA IS GOING IN THAT DIRECTION. >>Reporter: WELL, THAT'S VERY INTERESTING. WE'LL HAVE MORE IN JUST A FEW MINUTES. WE'LL HEAD BACK TO THE MAIN DESK WITH CAT AND FRANK. >>> THANK YOU, CARLA. THIS YEAR'S ELECTION HAS CHANGED THE GAME FOR WOMEN ACROSS THE POLITICAL SPECTRUM. >> IT'S NOT JUST WHAT FEMALE CANDIDATES ARE SAYING THAT FACES MEDIA SCRUTINY, IT'S ALSO WHAT THEY WEAR AND LOOK THAT MAKES HEADLINES. >>Reporter: WE SPOKE WITH PROFESSOR MILLER. MAN: DRESS IS ALWAYS ABOUT PRESENTING AN IMAGE. HILLARY CLINTON IS PRESENTING AN IMAGE ABOUT A VERY WELL TRAINED PROFESSIONAL WOMAN WHO IS NOT GOING TO GET DISTRACTED ABOUT HER DRESS. >>Reporter: IT'S AN OPTION THAT SIGNALS PROFESSIONALISM. PRESIDENT OBAMA DESCRIBED HIS VIEW ON PRESIDENTIAL ATTIRE. YOU'LL SEE I ONLY WEAR GRAY OR BLUE SUITS, OBAMA SAYS. I HAVE TOO MANY OTHER DECISIONS TO MAKE. MILLER SAYS FOR MEN ACROSS THE POLITICAL SPECTRUM, IT'S THE SAME STORY YEAR AFTER YEAR. MAN: MEN ALL HAVE THE SUIT, THE TIE, THE SHIRT, THEY'VE GOT THE FLAG PIN. EVERYONE. OBAMA HAS IT AND THERE'S NO VARIETY ALLOWED FOR MEN. >>Reporter: BUT WOMEN HAVE A BROADER RANGE OF OPTIONS TO CONSIDER WHEN THEY DECIDE WHAT MESSAGE THEY'RE SENDING TO THE PUBLIC THROUGH THEIR CLOTHING. FOR CLINTON, THE SUIT IS THE SOLUTION. >>> CERTAINLY, THERE WILL BE DISCUSSIONS ON ONLINE TONIGHT ABOUT WHO IS WEARING WHAT, AMONG OTHER THINGS. >> LET'S CHECK BACK IN WITH JACKIE AND CONNER TO SEE IF THAT REALLY MART MATTERS TO PEOPLE AND WHY. >>> APPEARANCE AND SPECIFICALLY PANT SUITS. IT'S BEEN FREQUENTLY TALKED ABOUT IN THE ELECTION PROCESS. CNN TOOK THE TIME TO TWEET ABOUT WOMEN WEARING PANT SUITS ON ELECTION DAY. PANT SUIT NATION ON FACEBOOK HAS BECOME A SAFE SPACE FOR CLINTON SUPPORTERS. PLUS, THE PANT SUIT IS A SUBTLE WAY TO MAKE A STATEMENT WITH THE BOUNDS OF NOT WEARING PARAPHERNALIA TO THE POLLS WHICH IS RESTRICTED. VIEWERS, FEEL FREE TO TWEET AT US, WHO WORE IT BETTER, JACKIE OR CONNER. >> PANT SUITS ALL THE WAY, #IMWITHHER. >>> DON'T ALL SUITS HAVE PANTS? DEFINITELY BRINGING TO LIGHT A COMEDIC ASPECT ON THIS BROADCAST. POINTING OUT THE OBVIOUS. >>> MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN WITHOUT PANT SUITS. >> AWESOME, BACK TO YOU GUYS. >>> GIVEN RECENT HIGH PROFILE HACKING, MANY AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE BEGUN TO QUESTION ELECTRONIC VOTING INTEGRITY. >> WHAT DO THE EXPERTS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THE SAFETY OF OUR VOTING SYSTEM? >>Reporter: WE TRAVELLED TO PENNSYLVANIA STATE CAPITAL BUILDING TO DISCUSS STEPS THE GOVERNMENT HAS TAKEN TO PROTECT THE ELECTION. WOMAN: WE'RE WORKING WITH OUR HOME LAND SECURITY TO TEST OUR SYSTEMS AND MAKE SURE THEY'RE AS SECURE AS POSSIBLE. >>Reporter: WHEN ASKED TO GO INTO FURTHER DETAIL, SHE RESPONDED -- WOMAN: IF ALL THE PROCEDURES ARE FOLLOWED, THE RISK OF TAVERNERING OR ERROR IS VERY LOW. >>Reporter: IN ORDER TO GET A MORE TECHNICAL UNDERSTANDING OF THE ISSUE, WE TRAVELLED TO THE UNIVERSITY TO SPEAK WITH DR. DANIEL, AN EXPERT ON VOTER SECURITY ABOUT WEAKNESSES OF DRE VOTING AND COUNTING SYSTEM. MAN: THIS MACHINE CAN APPEAR TO BE DOING EXACTLY WHAT WE INTEND BUT THERE'S NO WAY FOR THE VOTER TO CONFIRM WHAT'S GOING ON INSIDE THE MACHINE. >>Reporter: TODAY, THE MAJORITY OF THE VOTING PLACES IN PENNSYLVANIA USES THESE MACHINES. MAN: COMPUTER SECURITY EXPERTS BELIEVE THAT IT WOULD BE SAFER TO DO VOTING WITH A SYSTEM WHERE THERE'S A PHYSICAL MANIFESTATION OF THE VOTER'S INTENTION. WHICH IS PAPER. >>Reporter: WHILE THE DOCTOR HAD HIS CONCERNS ABOUT THE VOTING SYSTEM, HE LEFT US WITH THIS. MAN: THE SUREST WAY FOR YOUR VOTE NOT TO COUNT IS NOT TO VOTE. >>> CANDIDATES CERTAINLY SPEND PLENTY OF TIME TALKING ABOUT THE ISSUES BUT MANY TIMES, PEOPLE WANT TO KNOW WHO THEY ACTUALLY ARE. >> THEY TRY TO REACH VOTERS ANY WAY THEY CAN. >>Reporter: CANDIDATES SPEND MUCH OF THEIR CAMPAIGNS TRYING TO LOOK THE PART BUT SOMETIMES THOSE CANDIDATES HAVE TO THROW CAUTION TO THE WIND AND LOOK LIKE THIS. MAN: TO SEE A PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE PLAYING A SAXOPHONE IN SUNGLASSES WAS VERY DIFFERENT THAN WHAT WE GREW UP WITH. >>Reporter: POLITICIANS LOVE THE SCREEN TIME TO APPEAR MORE RELATABLE TO THEIR AUDIENCE. WE CAUGHT UP WITH HIM WHEN HE VISITED CAMPUS THIS FALL. MAN: A LOT OF PEOPLE VOTE BASED ON GUTS, BASED ON IF THEY CONNECT WITH THE POLITICIAN. IF YOU SEE THAT POLITICIAN IN A MUCH MORE HUMAN LIGHT, YOU'RE MORE LIKELY TO GET PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO VOTE FOR YOU. IF THEY LIKE YOU, THEY'RE GOING TO VOTE FOR YOU. >>Reporter: WHILE HE SAYS APPEARING RELATABLE IS VERY IMPORTANT, THE GOAL OF THESE APPEARANCES IS TO WIN OVER UNDECIDED VOTERS. MAN: THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES KNOW THAT THEY NEED TO REACH AUDIENCES THAT ARE NOT NECESSARILY WATCHING TRADITIONAL NEWS. AND THEY NEED TO GO WHERE THE EYEBALLS ARE. EVERY POLITICAL CANDIDATE HAS TO FIGURE OUT HOW DO I GET THE INDEPENDENTS COMING OVER TO MY SIDE. >>Reporter: WHILE CANDIDATES HAVE A LOT TO GAIN FROM NIGHTTIM NIGHTTIME SPOESH UR, THERE'S SOMETHING FOR THE NETWORKS TOO. MAN: RATINGS, RATINGS, RATINGS. >>Reporter: HIS EMPHASIS ON VIEWERSHIP NOT ONLY APPLIES TO NETWORKS BUT ALSO TO THE CANDIDATES IN THIS UPCOMING ELECTION. MAN: IF YOU'RE A CANDIDATE RUNNING FOR OFFICE, YOU WANT YOUR BIT TO GO VIRAL IN A POSITIVE WAY TO GET MORE EXPOSURE. >>> THIS EVENING, WE'LL FIND OUT WHAT WORKS AND WHAT DIDN'T. TIME FOR A CHECK ON THE RESULTS RIGHT NOW. CARLA IS STANDING BY WITH THE LATEST. CARLA. >>Reporter: THANK YOU. WE SEE IN THE STATE OF WISCONSIN, WE SEE THAT WITH THREE PERCENT OF THE VOTES BEING REPORTED, WE SEE THAT REPUBLICAN RON JOHNSON IS IN THE LEAD WITH 57 PERCENT. SO IS THIS SOMETHING THAT WAS SURPRISING OR SOMETHING WE EXPECTED? MAN: EARLY VOTE COUNTS ARE ALWAYS GOING TO BE REPUBLICAN. TRADITIONALLY THE RURAL DISTRICTS ARE THE FASTEST BECAUSE THEY HAVE THE LEAST AMOUNT OF VOTES. EITHER STATES THAT ARE GOING TO PUSH IT TOWARDS RUSH. RUF IS PROBABLY GOING TO PULL AHEAD WITH MILWAUKEE AND GREEN BAY AND CITIES LIKE THAT. I BELIEVE, YEAH. >>Reporter: GREAT. WHEN WE TURN TO THE STATE OF PENNSYLVANIA, WE SEE THAT REPUBLICANS ARE ACTUALLY LEADING AND WE SEE THAT DEMOCRAT IS TRAILING BEHIND. SORRY ABOUT THAT, WE SEE THAT DEMOCRAT MCGINTY IS LEADING. MAN: WE SEE THE VERY DIVISIVE CAMPAIGNS, A LOT OF PERSONAL ATTACKS ON EACH OTHER, JUST LIKE THE PRESIDENTIAL RACE. IT'S A BIT SURPRISING TO ME. I THINK IT'S GOING TO BE A CLOSE RACE SO WE HAVE TO KEEP AN EYE ON THIS ONE. >>Reporter: AGAIN, DEMOCRAT MCKINTY IS ACTUALLY LEADING THE POLLS. WHEN WE TURN TO THE POLLS OF NEW HAMPSHIRE, WE SEE THAT KELLY AOT IS LEADING THE POLLS WITH 48 PERCENT. CHRIS, ANDREW, WHAT DO YOU GUYS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THIS? MAN: ONCE AGAIN, WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO WAIT FOR MORE POLLING TO COME IN. NEW HAMPSHIRE IS NOT REALLY URBAN. IT KIND OF IS BUT WE'RE GOING TO WAIT ON CON CORD, MANCHESTER, CITIES LIKE THAT. ONCE AGAIN, AS ANDREW SAID EARLIER, WE THINK KELLY IS GOING TO PULL THIS ONE OUT. IT'S BEEN TIGHT, A LOT OF MONEY. SO IT'S GOING TO BE A TIGHT ONE. WE'LL HAVE TO KEEP WAITING TO SEE HOW MAGGIE CAN COME BACK WITH MORE URBAN AREAS IN NEW HAMPSHIRE. >>Reporter: OKAY, GREAT. WHEN WE TALK ABOUT VIRGINIA. MAN: YEAH, THE HOUSE RACES ARE REALLY IMPORTANT FOR THE DEMOCRATS. THEY'RE DOWN 30 SEATS. BUT THERE ARE GOING TO BE DISTRICTS LIKE THIS ONE IN VIRGINIA. THE REPUBLICAN INCUMBENT, SHE WAS A PERSON THAT SAID I WILL NOT BE VOTING FOR TRUMP. IN A STATE LIKE VIRGINIA, THAT'S HUGE BECAUSE TIM KAINE IS THE SENATOR FROM THERE, GOVERNOR, MAYOR OF RICHMOND, CLEARLY THERE'S A BIG INFLUENCE THERE. IT'S REALLY REPRESENTATIVE OF A LOT OF REPUBLICAN WOMEN. KELLY DID THE SAME AND THIS IS WHY SHE'S UP 55 PERCENT TO 45 PERCENT. >>Reporter: WELL, THANKS FOR THAT. WE'LL HAVE MORE RESULTS IN JUST A FEW MINUTES AND WE'RE GOING TO HEAD BACK TO THE MAIN DESK AGAIN WITH CAT AND FRANK. >>> WE'VE BEEN TALKING TONIGHT ABOUT HOW SOCIAL MEDIA HAS BEEN AN INCREASINGLY HOT TOPIC THIS ELECTION SEASON. >> OUR RESEARCHERS HEAD OUT TO EXAMINE THE IMPACT SOCIAL MEDIA HAS HAD ON POLITICAL POLAR SAIGS. >>Reporter: ACCORDING TO 2016 SURVEYS, HALF OF THE MEMBERS OF BOTH PARTIES DESCRIBE THE OTHERS AS MAKING THEM FEEL FRUSTRATED. WE TALKED TO AN EXPERT ON POLITICAL SCIENCE TO GET HER OPINION. WOMAN: SOCIAL MEDIA IS GOOD AT TALKING TO PEOPLE WHO ALREADY SUPPORT YOU WHO GO OUT OF THEIR WAY TO FOLLOW YOU. PEOPLE CAN CHOOSE EXACTLY WHAT VIEWPOINTS THEY WANT TO HEAR. YOU CAN FIND YOURSELVES IN THESE BUBBLES WHERE YOU'RE ONLY EXPOSED TO CERTAIN ISSUES. >>Reporter: SOCIAL MEDIA SITES MAY ACTUALLY BE DRIVING US FURTHER APART, NOT BRINGING US CLOSER TOGETHER. >>> CERTAINLY EVERYONE HAS BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS ELECTION INCLUDING OUR LAFAYETTE STUDENT COMMUNITY. >> LET'S GO TO OUR PULL BULL PEN. >>Reporter: THANKS FRANK AND CAT, WE'RE BACK HERE IN THE BULL PEN AND WE'VE GOT EXCITING THINGS TO TALK ABOUT. NOW, I WANT US TO TALK A LITTLE BIT ABOUT A SURVEY THAT OUR FIRST YEAR STUDENTS CONDUCTED IN IN A CLASS CALLED POLITICS AND POLLING THAT MARIE AND COOPER HAVE BOTH BEEN INVOLVED IN. TELL US WHAT YOU FOUND IN THIS SURVEY. WOMAN: WE DID A STUDENT BODY SURVEY THAT WAS SENT OUT TO THE WHOLE STUDENT BODY. OVERALL, WE ASKED BASIC DEMOGRAPHIC QUESTIONS LIKE GENDER, RACE, ETHNICITY, YOUR COLLEGE CLASS, MAJOR, YOUR PARTY AFFILIATION, WHO YOU MIGHT BE VOTING FOR AND STUDENTS TO IDENTIFY THREE ISSUES THAT THEY FELT WERE MOST IMPORTANT TO THEM. >>Reporter: COOPER, I THOUGHT YOU COULD SPEAK MORE IN DETAIL ABOUT WHAT YOU FOUND IN THE SURVEY. MAN: WHAT WE FOUND WAS THAT 72 PERCENT OF THE CAMPUS SUPPORT CLINTON. WHILE ALL THE REGISTERED DEMOCRATS SUPPORT HILLARY CLINTON, ONLY ABOUT 54 PERCENT OF THE REGISTERED REPUBLICANS SUPPORT TRUMP. >>Reporter: INTERESTING. ANY RESPONSES TO THAT FROM YOU ALL? WOMAN: YEAH, I PERSONALLY FIND THAT VERY INTERESTING COMING FROM SOMEBODY WHO STRUGGLED A LOT WITH THIS ELECTION. I'M PERSONALLY SOMEBODY WHO IDENTIFIES AS AN INDEPENDENT AND SOMEONE WHO IS PHYSICALLY CONSERVATIVE AND SOCIALLY LIBERAL. WHEN I TALK ABOUT TRUMP, I GET MORE HATE AND TEND TO BE TOS TRA SIZED. AT THE END OF THE DAY, INDEPENDENT CANDIDATES NEED TO DECIDE WHAT'S MORE IMPORTANT TO THEM. MAYBE EVEN VOTING AGAINST THE OTHER CANDIDATE. >>Reporter: GREAT. I WONDER, WHAT ELSE WAS SURPRISING IN THIS SURVEY? WOMAN: WELL, WHEN WE LOOK AT THE STUDENTS REACTING TO THE ISSUES, 60 PERCENT IDENTIFIED AS SOCIAL ISSUES AS TOP. NEXT WAS THE ECONOMY AND JOBS. AND SURPRISINGLY TO ME AND THE REST OF OUR CLASS, CLIMATE CHANGE WAS THIRD WITH 38 PERCENT. AND THEN WHEN YOU LOOK AT A CLASS TO CLASS BASIS, JOBS WERE PRETTY EVEN. THE ONLY THING THAT WAS SURPRISING WAS WITHIN THE SOPHOMORES, IMMIGRATION WAS HIGHER THAN ECONOMY AND JOBS. >>Reporter: LUIS, DO YOU WANT TO COMMENT ON THAT? MAN: OF COURSE. YOU BRING UP THE POINT THAT YOU FEEL THAT YOU IDENTIFY SOCIALLY LIBERAL AND PHYSICALLY CONSERVATIVE. I HEAR THAT VIEWPOINT A LOT IN HERE. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN TO YOU? TO ME, I DON'T SEE HOW THE TWO CAN BE DIFFERENT. I SEE FISCAL POLICY GOING ALONG SOCIALISM. HOW IS THAT DIFFERENT TO YOU? >>Reporter: LUIS, THAT'S A GREAT QUESTION BUT UNFORTUNATELY, WE'RE OUT OF TIME FOR THIS SEGMENT. WE'LL DIVE INTO THAT A LITTLE MORE IN ANOTHER ONE OF OUR BULL PENS. CAT AND FRANK, I'LL SEND IT BACK TO YOU. >>> THANKS, BARKER. WE'RE BACK. >>> ON BEHALF OF PBS, I'D LIKE TO THANK OUR VIEWERS FOR SPENDING THEIR ELECTION NIGHT WITH US. IF YOU'RE JUST WATCHING OR YOU'RE JUST TUNING IN, YOU'RE WATCHING FIRST VOTE IN A POLARIZED AGE, A PROGRAM PRODUCED BY LAFAYETTE COLLEGE STUDENTS, ANALYZING THE CRITICAL ISSUES THEY'RE FACING TODAY. WE'RE PROUD TO PRESENT THIS PROGRAM ON PBS39 AND GIVE YOUNG VOTERS WHO MAKE UP THE LARGEST GROUP OF VOTERS IN THE UNITED STATES A VOICE ON PUBLIC MEDIA. >> THANK YOU, LAURA. LET'S GET AN UPDATE FROM THE POLITICAL DESK. >>Reporter: WE SEE IN NORTH CAROLINA, TRUMP IS LEADING WITH THREE POINTS. 81 PERCENT OF THE VOTES ARE IN IN THAT STATE. WE SEE THAT IN FLORIDA, TRUMP IS LEADING BY ONE POINT WITH 95 PERCENT OF THE VOTES IN THAT STATE. WE SEE IN MICHIGAN, TRUMP IS UP BY FOUR POINTS WITH 24 PERCENT OF THE VOTES AND IN THE STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE, WE SEE THAT TRUMP IS ALSO UP BY TWO POINTS WITH 41 PERCENT. AND IN OHIO, TRUMP IS LEADING BY TEN POINTS WITH 70 PERCENT OF THE VOTES BEING IN. WE'RE GOING TO TURN TO OUR STUDENT ANALYSTS TO HEAR ABOUT THE DIFFERENCES THAT MAY COME UP TONIGHT. CHRIS AND ANDREW, WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THAT? MAN: THIS IS HUGE. THESE ARE UNEXPECTED RESULTS. LET'S TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT THIS ALL MEANS. ASSUMING THESE POLLS STAY, FLORIDA GOING RED, OHIO GOING RED, NEW HAMPSHIRE GOING RED, AND THEN MICHIGAN GOING RED, TRUMP IS ALSO -- RIGHT NOW HE'S LEADING SO LET'S SAY THAT GOES RED. WITH THESE STATES ASSUMING THESE POLL NUMBERS STICK, DONALD TRUMP WILL BE THE NEXT PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES. MAN: I'LL HOLD YOU THERE, ANDREW. I THINK MICHIGAN WILL BE GOING WITH SECRETARY CLINTON AND WISCONSIN. ONCE AGAIN, IT'S THE RURAL VOTE THAT COMES IN FIRST. WE'RE STILL WAITING ON THE URBAN AREAS, DETROIT, MILWAUKEE, GREEN BAY. I BELIEVE SECRETARY CLINTON GETS PENNSYLVANIA. FROM THERE, VIRGINIA GETS WAY CLOSER. LET'S JUST SAY THAT RICHMOND AND THE CITIES IN VIRGINIA, THE NORTHEAST CORNER WHICH IS THE MOST URBAN AREA HASN'T COME IN YET, LET'S SAY IT GOES TO SECRETARY CLINTON, IT WILL BE A DOG FIGHT. WHILE MUCH CLOSER THAN ANYONE'S ANTICIPATED AT THIS POINT, I STILL THINK SECRETARY CLINTON WINS IT, BUT IT'S SO MUCH CLOSER THAN ANYONE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE. >>Reporter: THE AMOUNT OF MONEY PUT INTO THESE TWO RACES. MAN: I THINK HAS A LOT TO DO WITH MONEY, ABSOLUTELY. I THINK IT HAS TO DO WITH THE GROUND GAME. BUT ON TOP OF EVERYTHING, THESE RESULTS, WHAT WE'RE SEEING SO FAR, IT'S NOT NECESSARILY PROVING BUT PLAYING INTO TRUMP'S CAMPAIGN MESSAGE THAT EVERYTHING IS RIGGED. I BET THEY'RE PRETTY SURPRISED. WE'RE GOING TO SEE A FAR NARROWER RACE THAN ANYONE EXPECTED. NOW WE'RE LOOKING ON HOW ON EARTH SECRETARY CLINTON COULD PULL THIS OUT. >>Reporter: WE'RE GOING TO TURN BACK TO THE MAIN DESK WITH CAT AND FRANK. >>> THANK YOU, CARLA. ACCORDING TO THE SMALL BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION, 99.7 PERCENT OF BUSINESSES IN AMERICA ARE SMALL BUSINESSES WITH LESS THAN 500 EMPLOYEES. >> THAT MEANS SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS HAVE A HUGE INTEREST IN WHAT THE CANDIDATES HAVE BEEN TALKING ABOUT REGARDING ISSUES THAT SURROUND THE BOTTOM LINE. >>Reporter: NEXT GRILL ON COLLEGE HILL IN EASTON, HE OPENED A RESTAURANT IN 2010 AND IS NOW IN THE PROCESS OF OPENING HIS THIRD LOCATION. MAN: MY LOVE FOR FOOD HAS BEEN IMPACTED FOR THE CULINARY ARTS WITH A COMBINATION OF MY WIFE AND CULTURE. >>Reporter: HE EXPRESSED POLICY CONCERNS. INCLUDING AN INCREASE IN THE MINIMUM WAGE. MAN: IT'S HARD FOR OWNERS TO AFFORD IT. IT'S GOING TO HURT EMPLOYEES BECAUSE WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO LAY THEM OFF. INSTEAD OF HAVING 7 STAFF MEMBERS, WE'RE GOING TO GO DOWN TO THREE. OUR PROFIT MARGINS ARE TEN PERCENT OF SALES. SO VERY LOW. A RATE HIKE OF TEN PERCENT COULD VANISH OUR PROFITS. SO MIGHT AS WELL NOT BE IN BUSINESS AT ALL. >>Reporter: TO LEARN MORE, WE WENT DOWN TOWN AND TWO OF HIS CLIENTS WERE THERE. ALL THREE HAD STRONG THOUGHTS ABOUT THE FUTURE OF SMALL BUSINESS FOR THE NEW PRESIDENT IN THE WHITE HOUSE. MAN: IF CLINTON GOES INTO OFFICE, I'M GOING TO BE EXACTLY WHERE I'M AT RIGHT NOW. SAME POSITION. IF DONALD TRUMP GOES INTO OFFICE, I THINK I MIGHT ACTUALLY HAVE A CHANCE TO MAKE SOME MONEY. MAN: I'M ALL FOR SMALL BUSINESS BUT IT CANNOT BE THE WILD WILD WEST AND I HEAR TRUMP TALKING ABOUT TAKING AWAY REGULATIONS AND I DON'T KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS BECAUSE HE HASN'T EXPANDED UPON ANY OF THAT. MAN: I DON'T THINK WE KNOW WHAT HE MEANS SOME OF THE TIME. BUT IF A PERSON HAS A SOUND IDEA AND THEY HAVE THE RIGHT BACKING AND CAPITAL, IT SHOULDN'T BE EXTREMELY DIFFICULT. >>Reporter: SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS LIKE JUAN AND AD, WANT OFFICIALS TO SUPPORT THEM WITH NOT JUST WORDS BUT ACTIONS. >>> WITH PRESIDENT OBAMA LEAVING OFFICE SOON, THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE POLICY IN THE U.S. IS STILL UNCLEAR. >> WHAT COULD BE THE IMPACT OF A NEW PRESIDENT ON THE LOCAL HEALTH CARE PROVIDERS AND THE ENTIRE HEALTH CARE INDUSTRY? >>Reporter: SINCE 2010 WHEN PRESIDENT OBAMA SIGNED THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT INTO LAW, NEARLY 11.7 MILLION AMERICANS HAVE USED THE LEGISLATION TO GAIN HEALTH INSURANCE. IN PENNSYLVANIA, OBAMA CARE HAS OPPRESSED 470 THOUSAND. WE SPOKE WITH ST. GEORGE TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE POLICY COULD LOOK LIKE FOLLOWING THE 2016 ELECTION. WOMAN: IT'S KIND OF HARD TO KNOW HOW IT'S GOING TO IMPACT HOSPITALS OR ANYBODY REALLY BECAUSE IF YOU LOOK AT HEALTH CARE, WE HAVE TWO CANDIDATES THAT HAVE TWO VERY DIVERSE HEALTH CARE PLATFORMS. ON ONE SIDE WE HAVE MRS. CLINTON WHO SAYS SHE'S VERY MUCH IN FAVOR OF THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT. SHE WANTS TO EXPAND IT AND THEN SHE ALSO WANTS TO IMPROVE THINGS THAT AREN'T WORKING. ON THE OTHER SIDE, OUR OTHER CANDIDATE, MR. TRUMP SAYS HE WANTS TO REPEAL AND REPLACE THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT. >>Reporter: A LOT OF LEADERS AND PHARMACEUTICAL COMPANIES ARE CONCERNED ABOUT HOW LEGISLATION CHANGES CAN HURT THEIR BUSINESS. MAN: FOR THE LARGER MED DEVICE PROVIDERS OF THE WORLD IS HOW DO WE MAKE GOOD INVESTMENT DECISIONS WITH AN UNCERTAIN LANDSCAPE. >>Reporter: MEANWHILE, PLANNED PARENTHOOD HAS STRONG CONCERNS ABOUT THE IMPACT THIS ELECTION COULD HAVE ON THE FUTURE OF WOMEN'S HEALTH CARE ISSUES. WOMAN: IT'S VERY IMPORTANT FOR US TO CONTINUE THE EFFORTS OF THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT. IT'S MADE TREMENDOUS STRIDES IN IMPROVING PUBLIC HEALTH AND INCREASING ACCESS TO HEALTH CARE FOR MILLIONS OF AMERICANS. >>Reporter: HEALTH CARE HAS CONTINUED TO RISE WHICH MOST OFFICIALS AGREE NEEDS TO BE ADDRESSED. INDIVIDUALS WE TALKED TO EXPRESS THE IMPORTANCE OF HOUSE AND SENATE ISSUES. >>> HOW DO LAFAYETTE STUDENTS FEEL ABOUT THE ROLE OF GOVERNMENT AND ESPECIALLY REGARDING THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE POLICY. >> CAMERON, WHAT ARE VIEWS FROM THE BULL PEN? >>Reporter: THANKS FRANK AND CAT. WOMAN: I HAVE A VERY STRONG OPINION ABOUT OBAMA CARE. I THINK IT'S A GOOD THING BUT IT NEEDS A LOT OF WORK. I HAVE A PREEXISTING CONDITION THAT WOULD PREVENT ME TO RECEIVE HEALTH CARE. IT DOESN'T AFFECT MY HEALTH IN THE SLIGHTEST BUT BECAUSE IT'S THERE, I CAN BE DENIED AND I THINK THAT'S JUST COMPLETELY I IMMORAL. HEALTH EQUALITY IS SOMETHING THAT SHOULD BE TAKEN INTO CONSIDERATION AND IT'S SOMETHING THE GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE PROVIDING FOR ITS CITIZENS. IT'S NOT A SYSTEM THAT WE SHOULD COMPLETELY ELIMINATE FROM OUR SOCIETY EITHER. >>Reporter: THE IDEA OF OBAMA CARE IS A MAIN -- HOWEVER, SOME PEOPLE DISAGREE WITH THE GOVERNMENT HAVING A ROLE IN PUBLICLY FUNDED HEALTH CARE. WELL, THE BIG PROBLEM WITH GOVERNMENT BEING INVOLVED WITH HEALTH CARE, THERE'S ISSUES OF FREEDOM OF RELIGION THERE. DEFINITELY THE RIGHT OF PEOPLE TO CHOOSE WHAT HEALTH CARE THEY CAN ACCESS. AND THE PROBLEM WITH OBAMA CARE INITIALLY HAS BEEN I THINK BEST EXEMPLIFIED BY -- IN THAT CASE, YOU DO HAVE THESE BIG PROBLEMS AND YOU HAVE TO -- >>Reporter: THAT'S DEFINITELY A GOOD POINT. JOSEPH. MAN: WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT IT, THE BIG PROBLEM WITH OBAMA CARE IS THAT IT'S INCOMPREHENSIVE AND DOESN'T HELP EVERYONE. THERE'S A LARGE AMOUNT OF LOWER INCOME PEOPLE AND THOSE FROM WORSE OFF ECONOMIC BACKGROUNDS THAT NEED THE GOVERNMENT TO STEP IN AND MANDATE AND ENSURE HEALTH CARE FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE. IT IS NEEDED AND NECESSARY. >>Reporter: EXACTLY. I THINK ONE OF THE MAIN ISSUES THAT PEOPLE MAY HAVE REGARDING THE PUBLIC COVERAGE ARE SOME OF THE SOCIAL ISSUES INVOLVED IN HEALTH CARE. KATE, I KNOW YOU HAVE A LOT TO SAY ON THIS. WOMAN: PERSONALLY, HEALTH CARE ISN'T SOMETHING I FOCUS ON AS MUCH BECAUSE IT'S NOT GOING TO AFFECT ME UNTIL I'M 26. SOMETHING THAT'S IMPORTANT TO ME FOR BETTER WORDS IS ABORTION. WITH SOMEBODY WHO HAS A CONSERVATIVE VIEW ON ABORTION, I DO AGREE IT SHOULD BE LEGAL BUT WITHIN THE FIRST TRIMESTER. >>Reporter: THAT'S A FAIR POINT. I KNOW PEOPLE HAVE CONCERNS ABOUT HEALTH CARE IN GENERAL LEADING TO DECISIONS BEING MADE ON THIS. IF ANYONE HAS FINAL THOUGHTS ON THAT? WOMAN: JUST IN TERMS OF ABORTION, PEOPLE THINK OF PLANNED PARENTHOOD AS THAT BEING THE SOLE PURPOSE IT'S NOT. MAMMOGRAMS, DAILY CHECKUPS, THAT'S REALLY WHERE THE FUNDING GOES. >>Reporter: ABSOLUTELY. THERE'S ABSOLUTELY A LOT MORE TO BE SAID ON THIS TOPIC. WE'RE OUT OF TIME SO CAT AND FRANK, BACK TO YOU. >>> THANKS CAMERON. TIME TO CHECK IN ON THE RESULTS AND WHAT THE NUMBERS MEAN WITH CARLA AND OUR ANALYSTS. >>Reporter: LET'S RECAP THE PENNSYLVANIA STATE SENATE RACES. REPUBLICANS HAVE CLAIMED 3/25 SEATS WITH 25 PERCENT OF VOTES IN AND THE PENNSYLVANIA STATE HOUSE, REPUBLICANS HAVE CLAIMED 91 SEATS. DEMOCRATS HAVE 68 SEATS. WE'LL CONTINUE TO UPDATE YOU ON THESE RACES THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT. WE'LL RETURN TO THE HOUSE SEATS, WE SEE NEW JERSEY AND THE FIFTH DISTRICT, WE SEE THAT DEMOCRAT IS LEADING WITH 52 PERCENT OF THE VOTE AND THE REPUBLICANS TRAILING BEHIND. WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK ABOUT THIS? MAN: SCOTT GARRETT IS THE CHAIRMAN OF THE FINANCE COMMITTEE IN THE U.S. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, ESTABLISHED REPUBLICAN. THAT'S WHY HE'S STRUGGLING. FOR SOMEONE SO WELL-KNOWN ACROSS THE NATION, IT'S SHOCKING THAT HE MIGHT LOSE HIS DISTRICT TO A FORMER HILLARY CLINTON TRAIT. >>Reporter: WHEN WE TURN TO THE SECOND DISTRICT, WE SEE DEMOCRAT KAINE HAS -- CHRIS OR ANDREW, DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY ABOUT THE MAINE SECOND DISTRICT? MAN: I'M ACTUALLY FROM RIGHT ABOUT HERE. EMILY KAINE, THIS IS A REMATCH FROM 2014. BRUCE IS A LITTLE BIT LIKE DONALD TRUMP ALONG WITH OUR GOVERNOR. IT'S THAT SAME RASH CONSERVATISM. EMILY KAINE IS THE MAJORITY LEADER IN THE STATE SENATE IN MAINE. WE'LL WAIT FOR CERTAIN CITIES. THOSE ARE GOING TO BE THE ONES TO REALLY DECIDE THE MAIN SECOND. >>Reporter: THANK YOU FOR THAT. WHEN WE TURN TO NEW HAMPSHIRE IN THE FIRST DISTRICT, WE SEE THAT THE DEMOCRATS HAVE 42.6 PERCENT OF THE VOTES AND WE SEE THE REPUBLICANS HAVE 43.7 PERCENT OF THE VOTES WITH 39 PERCENT OF THE VOTES BEING IN RIGHT NOW. CHRIS, ANDREW, WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT NEW HAMPSHIRE AND THE FIRST DISTRICT? MAN: THIS IS GOING TO BE ANOTHER ONE THE DEMOCRATS ARE LOOKING TO FLIP. RIGHT NOW IT'S A TIGHT RACE BUT THE DEMOCRATS NEED TO FLIP 30 SEATS. PRETTY UNREALISTIC. BUT IT'S RACES LIKE THIS THAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO NEED TO FLIP. >>Reporter: VERY INTERESTING. AND THEN WE'RE GOING TO TURN TO PENNSYLVANIA AND THE 8TH DISTRICT. CHRIS, ANDREW, WHAT DO YOU GUYS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THIS AND THE 8TH DISTRICT? MAN: THIS FOLLOWS THE TREND WE'VE BEEN SEEING WITH REPUBLICANS RETAINING THE HOUSE. HERE IN PENNSYLVANIA 17TH DISTRICT WHERE LAFAYETTE COLLEGE IS, THERE'S A NOT SO TIGHT RACE. IT'S VERY LIKELY THAT MARK WILL RETAIN HIS SEAT. ADDITIONALLY IN THE PENNSYLVANIA ATTORNEY GENERAL RACE, THERE'S OF COURSE A SPECIAL ELECTION AFTER THE FORMER ATTORNEY GENERAL WAS FORCED TO RESIGN HER POSITION AFTER MANY SCANDALS AND PERJURY INDICTMENT. RIGHT NOW WE HAVE THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE AND REPUBLICAN CANDIDATE. RIGHT NOW THE DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE IS POLLING ALMOST DOUBLE DIGITS AHEAD OF HIS REPUBLICAN COUNTER PART. >>Reporter: WE'LL HEAD BACK TO THE PAIN DESK WITH FRANK AND CAT. >> THANK YOU, CARLA. CAMPAIGN SLOGANS ARE DISPLAYED PROM PROM DANTLY. >>Reporter: IN THIS PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, BOTH CANDIDATES HAVE PUT A HUGE EMPHASIS ON THEIR CAMPAIGN SLOGANS SOME OF WHICH HAVE MADE IMPACTS ON STUDENTS FOR VARIOUS REASONS. WE TALKED TO MICHAEL WHO HAS EXTENSIVE BACKGROUNDS IN CREATIVE SERVICES AND MARKETING ABOUT THE PURPOSE AND VALUE OF SLOGANS IN THIS ELECTION. MAN: IT PROVIDES A CENTRAL IDEA THAT IS CONSTANTLY REENFORCED BY EVERYTHING ELSE THAT'S DONE. IT NEEDS TO BE MEANINGFUL TO THE AUDIENCE BUT IT NEEDS TO BE REPRESENTED IN WHO YOU ARE AND WHAT YOU STAND FOR. >>Reporter: WE ASKED STUDENTS ON CAMPUS IF THEY KNEW THE SLOGANS OF THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES. WOMAN: MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN IS DONALD TRUMP'S SLOGAN AND HILLARY CLINTON'S I'M WITH HER, RIGHT? MAN: I THINK THE SLOGAN FOR HILLARY CLINTON IS EITHER I'M WITH HER, OR SOMETHING ALONG THOSE LINES. WOMAN: I KNOW LET'S MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN AND I DON'T KNOW HILLARY CLINTON'S. >>Reporter: HE OFFERED AN EXPLANATION AS TO WHY MANY OF THE STUDENTS WE SPOKE WITH WERE MORE INCLINED TO REMEMBER TRUMP'S SLOGANS. INTO MAN: IT'S A TRUE REFLECTION OF WHAT THEY LIKE THE MOST. WHEN YOU LOOK AT TRUMP'S SLOGAN I'LL MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN, THAT'S REALLY WHAT HIS MESSAGE IS. WHEN YOU LOOK AT HILLARY CLINTON'S, I'M TALKING ABOUT STRONGER TOGETHER, THAT'S A REFLECTION OF HER PERSONALITY. >>Reporter: THE STUDENTS WE SPOKE WITH SAID THEY'VE BECOME FAMILIAR WITH TRUMP'S SLOGAN BECAUSE OF HIS STRONG SOCIAL MEDIA PRESENCE. SCOTT SAYS THAT CAMPAIGN SLOGANS THAT EMBODY THE PERSONALITY WILL HELP THEM WHEN THEY HEAD TO THE VOTING POLLS. >>> ONE FEATURE OF THIS PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION HAS BEEN THE LANGUAGE THAT BOTH CAPPE CANDIDATES USE. >>Reporter: AS WE REVIEWED THE PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES' SPEECH, WE WANTED TO LEARN IF AND HOW THEIR LANGUAGE IMPACTS VOTERS DECISIONS. TO GAIN FURTHER INSIGHT, WE TRAVELLED TO A COLLEGE OUTSIDE OF PHILADELPHIA TO INTERVIEW AN EXPERT PROFESSOR. WOMAN: I TEACH CRITICAL DISCOURSE ANALYSIS AND THIS IS A METHOD OF LOOKING AT WHAT COMES ACROSS IN THE MEDIA AND WHAT COMES ACROSS IN PRINT AND ON SCREEN TO UNDERSTAND HOW POWER AND AUTHORITY ARE ENCODED IN COMMUNICATION. >>Reporter: WE SHOWED PROFESSOR THOMAS MULTIPLE CLIPS FROM EACH CANDIDATES, STARTING WITH MR. TRUMP. MAN: EXTREME VETTING. WE'RE GOING TO AREAS LIKE SYRIA WHERE THEY'RE COMING IN BY THE TENS OF THOUSANDS BECAUSE OF BARACK OBAMA AND HILLARY CLINTON. WOMAN: HE PATCHES TOGETHER DIFFERENT SHORTER PHRASES SO IT BECOMES MORE CHALLENGING, I THINK, TO FOLLOW HIS FAULT PATTERNS. BUT ALSO, HE DOES IT IN A WAY THAT MAKES IT FEEL LIKE HE'S SPEAKING INPROMPT TU AND HE'S COMING ACROSS IN A NATURALIZED PATTERN. >>Reporter: THEN WE ASKED HER IMPRESSIONS OF SECRETARY CLINTON. WOMAN: OUR CHILDREN SUFFERING IN THIS CATASTROPHIC WAR, LARGELY I BELIEVE BECAUSE OF RUSSIAN AGGRESSION. WOMAN: CLINTON'S VERY ORIENTED TOWARDS TALKING POINTS, TOWARDS SPECIFIC PHRASES THAT REFER TO POINTS OF HER PLAN. AND THAT GOES FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE PLAN ORIENTED WHO WANT SOME DETAILS AND FEEL LIKE THEY'RE GETTING DETAILS FROM THESE CANDIDATES. >>Reporter: AFTER ANALYZING THE CANDIDATES' LANGUAGE, PROFESSOR THOMAS DESCRIBES THIS ELECTION AS BOTH UNNERVING AND EXCITING. >>> WHAT ARE VOTERS TALKING ABOUT RIGHT NOW? >>> WELCOME BACK TO THE MEDIA DESK, IT'S BEEN A LITTLE WHILE. WITH US, WE HAVE A STUDENT WHO WAS MENTIONED EARLIER WHO CONDUCTED A COMPETITION THROUGHOUT LAFAYETTE COLLEGE LAST WEEK. WHAT ARE THE RESULTS THAT HAVE COME IN LATELY? MAN: THEY'RE VERY CLOSE RACES INCLUDING VIRGINIA AND NORTH CAROLINA. THE DATA SHOWS MANY OF THE STUDENTS PREDICTED NORTH CAROLINA AND VIRGINIA WOULD BE TAKEN BY SENATOR CLINTON. >> CAN YOU JUST REMIND THE AUDIENCE WHAT ARE THE CLOSE POLLS IN ORDER TO WIN THIS? MAN: WE ASKED THE STUDENTS TO PREDICT THE CLOSEST SENATE, HOUSE, AND PRESIDENTIAL. >> IF YOU WOULDN'T MIND SHARING AGAIN, WHAT IS THE AWESOME PRIZE THEY'LL WIN IF THEY'RE ABLE TO PULL OUT THE COMPETITIVE ELECTION COMPETITION. MAN: TWO TICKETS TO THE INAUGURATION, THE INAUGURAL BALL, AND $1,000 TO COVER THE EXPENSES. >> WHO IS CURRENTLY IN THE LEAD? MAN: SO FAR WE HAVE 59 STUDENTS OUT OF THE 500 STUDENTS WHO HAVE SUBMITTED THEIR PREDICTIONS HAVING A PERFECT SCORE OF 5/5 RACES. >> THAT'S AMAZING, I'M SURE THE STUDENTS WILL BE UP ALL NIGHT IF THEY HAVE A CHANCE TO WIN. >> LOOKING AT THE RESULTS, LAFAYETTE COLLEGE STUDENTS HAVE DONE A GREAT JOB PREDICTING ELECTIONS. ALL THE PROFESSORS ARE GOING TO BE REST ASSURED AND SLEEP EASY KNOWING THEIR STUDENTS ARE ON TOP OF THEIR WORK. >> ANY OTHER STATES THAT YOU THINK ARE GOING TO BE CLOSE? MAN: I THINK FLORIDA WHICH HAS TURNED INTO A MR. TRUMP SIDE WHICH MIGHT BE VERY SURPRISING FOR MANY STUDENTS AS WELL. >> THANKS AGAIN FOR THE UPDATE. IT WILL BE INTERESTING TO SEE WHERE THE ELECTION POLL GOES THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT. >> THANKS, GUYS. >>> THE MCC ON THE SUPREME COURT WAS A MAJOR TOPIC THROUGHOUT THIS ELECTION SEASON. >> WITH BIG ISSUES COMING UP FOR REVIEW, A NEW PRESIDENT COULD CHANGE THE FUTURE OF THE SUPREME COURT. >>Reporter: NEXT YEAR, THE SUPREME COURT WILL HEAR THE CASE OF GAVIN GRIM. A TRANSGENDER MALE IN VIRGINIA. HE USED THE MALE BATHROOM UNTIL PARENTS CALLED FOR CONCERN. THE EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR OF SULLIVAN LGBT COMMUNITY CENTER WILL BE WATCHING THE OUTCOME OF THIS CASE CLOSE LI BECAUSE OF THE IMPACT IT WILL HAVE ON USE OF SCHOOLS IN OHIO VALLEY. MAN: THEY RESERVE THE RIGHT TO USE THE BATHROOM WITH THEIR IDENTITY. THAT'S WHAT THIS CASE IS ABOUT WHICH IS THE ABILITY WITH PEOPLE BEING TREATED EQUALLY IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS. >>Reporter: SOME LOCAL SCHOOLS HAVE ALREADY ADDRESSED THIS ISSUE. MAN: IT INCLUDES THE RIGHT TO USE THE BATHROOM IN PEACE. >>Reporter: THE PRESIDENT'S NEXT APPOINTEE TO THE SUPREME COURT WILL POTENTIALLY -- HE SAYS THE NEXT PRESIDENT WILL HAVE TO FILL AT LEAST ONE SEAT. MAN: WE HAVE HAD A CONSERVATIVE COURT SINCE 1970/71. JUST LOOKING AT WHICH PRESIDENT IS ACTUALLY DOING THE APPOINTING. SO FOR THE REPUBLICANS, THIS IS A MAJOR SHIFT IF HILLARY CLINTON WERE TO WIN IN NOVEMBER AND APPOINT THE NEXT JUSTICE, IT IS QUITE A SHIFT AND THERE'S A REASON WHY THE POLLSTERS ARE SAYING THAT 85 PERCENT OF THE VOTERS THINK THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT ISSUE. >>> FOR THOSE OF YOU JOINING US AT HOME, YOU'RE ABOUT TO ENTER THE LAST HALF HOUR OF FIRST VOTE POLARIZED AGE. THIS PROGRAM WAS PRODUCED BY STUDENTS AND IS BEING BROADCAST LIVE FROM THE COLLEGE CENTER AT LAFAYETTE COLLEGE LOCATED IN EASTON, PENNSYLVANIA. THE STUDENTS YOU'RE SEEING TONIGHT INCLUDING CAT AND FRANK VOTED IN THEIR FIRST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION TODAY. WE'RE PROUD TO PRESENT COVERAGE FROM STUDENTS AND BY STUDENTS ON THIS HISTORIC NIGHT. WE'D LIKE TO APPLAUD LAFAYETTE COLLEGE FOR EDUCATING THEIR STUDENTS AND INVITING US TO BE A PART OF IT. >>> CARLA, WHAT'S GOING ON RIGHT NOW? >>Reporter: WE SEE THAT IN THE PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, THE STATE OF PENNSYLVANIA, SECRETARY CLINTON IS LEADING BY NINE POINTS. AND THEN WHEN WE TURN TO THE STATE OF MICHIGAN, WE SEE THAT DONALD TRUMP HAS 49 PERCENT OF THE VOTE WITH HILLARY CLINTON TRAILING BEHIND WITH 45 PERCENT OF THE VOTE. SO CHRIS AND ANDREW, FOR MICHIGAN AND PENNSYLVANIA, ARE THESE SURPRISING RESULTS THAT WE HAVE SO FAR? MAN: I THINK MICHIGAN IS A BIT MORE SURPRISING. MICHIGAN HASN'T GONE RED SINCE 1988 WITH PRESIDENT REAGAN'S REELECTION. I THINK THAT'S DEFINITELY SURPRISING. THIS IS GOOD NEWS FOR TRUMP AND HIS CAMPAIGN. LOOKING AT PENNSYLVANIA, NOT TOO SURPRISING YET, MOST PEOPLE ASSUME THAT CLINTON HAD A SMALL LEG UP ON TRUMP IN PENNSYLVANIA. HOWEVER, IT'S WORTHY TO NOTE THAT UNDER HALF THE STATE'S VOTES HAVE COME IN BUT 90 PERCENT OF PHILADELPHIA HAVE COME IN. A LOT OF CLINTON VOTES FROM P.A MAY HAVE COME IN BUT WE'LL SEE WHAT ELSE HAPPENS THROUGHOUT THE NIGHT. >>Reporter: WHEN WE TURN TO THE STATE OF WISCONSIN, DONALD TRUMP HAS 48 PERCENT WITH HILLARY CLINTON TRAILING BEHIND WITH 46 PERCENT. OF THOSE VOTES REPORTED, WE SEE 38 PERCENT OF THE VOTES HAVE BEEN REPORTED IN WISCONSIN. IS WISCONSIN ONE OF THE STATES THAT WE EXPECTED DONALD TRUMP TO WIN AS WELL? MAN: AGAIN, IT'S SIMILAR TO MICHIGAN. IT HASN'T GONE RED IN QUITE SOMETIME. THEY'RE CONTROVERSIAL BUT NONETHELESS REPUBLICAN GOVERNORS. WHO KNOWS, DONALD TRUMP MAY BE ABLE TO HAVE A LEAD IN WISCONSIN. >>Reporter: VERY INTERESTING. AND THEN WHEN WE TURN TO THE STATE OF OHIO, WE SEE THAT WITH 74 PERCENT OF THE VOTES BEING REPORTED RIGHT NOW, WE SEE THAT DONALD TRUMP IS ALSO LEADING WITH 53 PERCENT OF THE VOTE AND THEN SECRETARY CLINTON IS TRAILING BEHIND WITH 42 PERCENT OF THE VOTE AND OHIO IS ONE OF THESE MUST WIN STATES FOR DONALD TRUMP SO HE'S DOING PRETTY WELL RIGHT NOW. DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY ABOUT THAT RIGHT NOW? MAN: OHIO, WE'RE WAITING ON VOTES. >>Reporter: ACTUALLY WE JUST FOUND OUT THAT OHIO HAS GONE TO MR. TRUMP. THIS IS BIG NEWS. OHIO HAS GONE TO TRUMP. DO YOU HAVE ANYTHING TO SAY ABOUT THIS WIN FOR TRUMP? MAN: OHIO WAS ONE OF THE BIG THREE HE NEEDED TO WIN. OHIO, NORTH CAROLINA, AND FLORIDA. RIGHT NOW HE'S WELL ON HIS WAY TO WINNING THOSE THREE. OBVIOUSLY HE NEEDS TO FLIP MICHIGAN. IT'S A BIT OF A TASK BUT HE HAS TO FLIP THEM. I WAS THINKING CLEVELAND AND CINCINNATI WOULD GIVE CLINTON THE BOOST BUT 11 PERCENT IS JUST SOMETHING YOU CAN'T OVERCOME WHEN YOU'RE LOSING A STATE BY THAT MUCH, YOU CAN'T REALLY TRUST THE CITIES. WHEN THE CITIES ARE HERE AND HERE AND THIS ENTIRE SWATH IS GOING TO THE OTHER CANDIDATE, YOU HAVE NO HOPE IN WINNING THE ENTIRE STATE. MAN: THIS IS CERTAINLY A HUGE VICTORY FOR TRUMP. IF OHIO HAD GONE TO CLINTON, THE RACE WOULD BE OVER FOR ALL INTENTS AND PURPOSES. DONALD TRUMP IS ALIVE AND WELL. >>Reporter: THIS IS VERY BIG NEWS FOR TONIGHT. WE'LL TURN IT OVER TO PENNSYLVANIA SENATE RACE. WE SEE THAT IN THE PENNSYLVANIA SENATE RACE, THE REPUBLICANS SIDE IS LEADING WITH 42 PERCENT OF THE VOTE. WE SEE THAT THE DEMOCRAT -- I'M SORRY ABOUT THAT, THE DEMOCRAT IS LEADING WITH 53 PERCENT OF THE VOTE AND REPUBLICAN IS TRAILING BEHIND WITH 42 PERCENT OF THE VOTE. THIS IS SOMETHING THAT IS VERY IMPORTANT FOR US BEING FROM PENNSYLVANIA. WHAT DO YOU GUYS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THIS LEAD? MAN: PHILADELPHIA HAS A LOT OF THEIR VOTES REPORTED WHICH IS PRETTY INCREDIBLE. I SAW SOME LINES EARLIER TODAY. PHILADELPHIA HAD LINES AT 6:30 A.M. READY TO VOTE. WE'RE GOING TO BE LOOKING AT THE REST OF THE STATE TO BRING PAT BACK UP THE TEN POINT MARGIN. RIGHT NOW IT LOOKS LIKE KATIE LOOKS RELATIVELY SAFE BUT WE HAVE A LOT TO GO. NO ONE IS GOING TO CALL THIS QUITE YET. WE HAVE TO WAIT FOR THIS PART WHILE PHILADELPHIA, AND PITTSBURGH ARE GOING TO GO TOWARDS MCGINTY. >>Reporter: WE TURN TO THE RACE IN NORTH CAROLINA. BURR HAS 51 PERCENT OF THE VOTE AND DEMOCRAT HAS 45 PERCENT OF THE VOTE. ACTUALLY, JUST TURNING IN, WE SEE THAT REPUBLICAN BURR HAS WON THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA FOR THE SENATE. FOR THEM, THIS IS SOMETHING THAT'S SURPRISING FOR EXPECTED? MAN: THIS IS ONE OF THE STATES THAT THE DEMOCRATS WERE LOOKING TO FLIP ALONG WITH NEW HAMPSHIRE, PENNSYLVANIA, THIS WAS ONE OF THE STATES. FOR IT TO BE CALLED THIS EARLY AT 10:30, IT'S NOT LOOKING GOOD FOR THE DEMOCRATS TO GET THE HOUSE. BUT DEBRA ROSS, A RELATIVELY STRONG CANDIDATE TO RICHARD BURR, HE RAN A GREAT CAMPAIGN IN 2014, HE'S RUNNING A GREAT CAMPAIGN THIS YEAR. WHILE HE ACONNECTED TO TRUMP, CLEARLY THAT'S NOT AFFECTING THE REST OF THE COUNTRY. FOR RICHARD BURR TO WIN HERE, NOT A HUGE SURPRISE BUT VERY GOOD FOR THE REPUBLICANS TO MAINTAIN THE SENATE. >>Reporter: THANKS, GUYS. NOW WE'RE GOING TO HEAD BACK TO THE MAIN DESK. >>> A SEPTEMBER 2016 POLL SHOWED THAT 70 PERCENT OF AMERICANS WERE DISSATISFIED WITH ELECTION PROCEDURES IN THE U.S. >> MANY ARE CALLING FOR REFORM IN HOW WE COLLECT OUR POLITICAL READINGS. FOR IDEAS AND ON HOW THE REST OF THE WORLD ELECTS ITS LEADERS. >>Reporter: ACCORDING TO THE INTERNATIONAL INSTITUTE, THE UNITED STATES RANKS ONLY FOURTH OUT OF 113 -- HOW HAVE OTHER COUNTRIES ACHIEVED HIGHER VOTE TURNOUT? LET'S START WITH BRAZIL. MAN: IT'S ELECTRONIC, VERY EASY. YOU VOTE VERY CLOSE TO YOUR HOUSE. >>Reporter: ITS LAST THREE ELECTIONS AVERAGE ALMOST 80 PERCENT IN VOTER TURNOUT. MAN: IT DOES TEND TO HAVE PEOPLE MORE INVOLVED BECAUSE YOU DO HAVE TO HAVE AN OPINION. I THINK THAT MAY ENCOURAGE PEOPLE FOR GETTING INVOLVED. >>Reporter: NEXT, LET'S LOOK AT GERMANY, IT'S ONE OF 108 COUNTRIES THAT USE A PROCESS CALLED PROPORTIONAL REPRESENTATION. THEY HAVE SUBSTANTIAL REPRESENTATION BY FIVE PARTIES COMPARED TO AMERICA'S TWO PARTY SYSTEM. MAN: IN GERMANY, YOU HAVE THE POSSIBILITY OF NOT BEING TIED TO ONE PARTY. >>Reporter: FINALLY, WE TURN TO SOUTH KOREA FOR A LOOK AT HOW THEY HANDLE CAMPAIGN FINANCE LAWS. WOMAN: IN PRESIDENTIAL ELECTIONS, ONLY UP TO FIVE PERCENT CAN COME FROM DONATIONS AND EVERYTHING ELSE NEEDS TO BE FUNDED PUBLICLY. >>Reporter: IN 2015, AMERICA RANKED 47 OUT OF 139 COUNTRIES ON THE ELECTORAL LIST. WOMAN: FINANCE LAWS ACTUALLY DO MATTER. THEY PROVIDE A BASIS FOR INSTITUTIONAL SAIGS OF PARTY POLITICS AND PARTIES, OF COURSE, ARE ESSENTIAL TO THRIVING AND STABLE DEMOCRACIES. >>Reporter: SOUTH KOREA, GERMANY, AND BRAZIL ARE JUST A SNAPSHOT TO THE DEMOCRATIC COUNTRIES ACROSS THE WORLD. >>Reporter: WE'RE BACK HERE IN THE BULL PEN. WOMAN: I'M CONTENT WITH A TWO PARTY SYSTEM. I FEEL LIKE THE COUNTRY IS SO DIVIDED ALREADY AND THERE ARE ONLY TWO PARTIES. IF THERE WERE TWO BE A MULTIPARTY SYSTEM, THERE WOULD BE MORE OPTIONS AND THE COUNTRY WOULD BE MORE DIVIDED. >>Reporter: ANY RESPONSES? MAN: YEAH. I ACTUALLY DISAGREE WITH THAT. I THINK THAT A LOT OF PEOPLE THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY HAVE THE SENTIMENT THAT THEY DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE OR THEY DON'T LIKE THE CANDIDATES THAT WE HAVE AND IT'S BECAUSE WE'RE A TWO PARTY SYSTEM. IF WE LOOK AT HOW WE HAVE MR. TRUMP AND SECRETARY CLINTON, WE GO BACK TO THE PRIMARIES AND IF WE LOOK AT OUR PRIMARIES, OUR PRIMARIES ARE FLAWED. IF YOU'RE NOT REGISTERED UNDER A CERTAIN PARTY, YOU DON'T HAVE A VOTE. I THINK THAT WE NEED TO MAKE REFORM AND RESTRUCTURE SO OTHER VOICES CAN COME UP. WOMAN: I AGREE WITH YOU. I BELIEVE THERE SHOULD BE MORE THAN A TWO PARTY SYSTEM ONLY BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE AMERICANS FEEL PRESSURE TO FALL UNDER THE DEMOCRATIC OR REPUBLICAN. I'M AN INDEPENDENT AND I BELIEVE IN BOTH DEMOCRATIC VIEWS AND REPUBLICAN VIEWS BUT AT THE SAME TIME I FEEL LIKE THERE SHOULD BE A PARTY THAT FITS PEOPLE'S VIEWS IN GENERAL. WOMAN: I BELIEVE THE TWO PARTY SYSTEM WORKS. ZAMBIA HAS MULTIPLE POLITICAL PARTIES. IT'S HARD TO FIGURE OUT WHAT FEEL PRESSURE TO FALL UNDER THE WOMAN: I'M NOT QUITE CERTAIN THAT A MULTIPLE PARTY POLITICAL SYSTEM MIGHT SOLVE THIS PROBLEM THAT YOU'RE LOOKING AT. YES, THE CANDIDATES THEMSELVES ARE DISLIKED. BUT WHAT ABOUT THEIR POLICIES AND THE PLATFORM OF THE WHOLE PARTY. PEOPLE THAT ARE REPUBLICANS BUILD A PLATFORM EVEN IF YOU DON'T AGREE. CAN THEY VOTE OTHERWISE TO SHOW DISCONTENT? OF COURSE THEY CAN. THE PARTY IS THIS BIGGER THING THAN THE CANDIDATE. >>Reporter: UNFORTUNATELY, I'M GOING TO HAVE TO CUT IT HERE. WE'VE RUN OUT OF TIME. THANK YOU SO MUCH. >>> THANKS, BARKER. LET'S GO OVER TO THE POLITICAL DESK. >>Reporter: THANK YOU, WE SEE IN THE STATE OF COLORADO, WE SEE THAT SECRETARY CLINTON IS UP BY FIVE POINTS WITH 6 -- NEW NEWS COME IN, SECRETARY CLINTON HAS WON THE STATE OF COLORADO. IS THIS A SURPRISING WIN? MAN: NO, NOT TOO SURPRISING FOR CLINTON. A PRETTY TYPICAL LIBERAL STATE. A GOOD WIN FOR CLINTON BUT NONETHELESS WON'T BE SIGNIFICANTLY EFFECTING THE ELECTION. >>Reporter: GREAT. NOW WE'RE GOING TO TURN TO NORTH CAROLINA. YOU SEE THAT MR. TRUMP IS LEADING BY FOUR POINTS WITH 85 PERCENT OF THE VOTES BEING IN RIGHT NOW. HILLARY CLINTON HAS 46 PERCENT OF THE VOTE, DONALD TRUMP HAS 51 PERCENT OF THE VOTE. CHRIS, ANDREW, NORTH CAROLINA IS A HUGE BATTLE GROUND STATE, WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THAT? MAN: CARLA, LET'S GO BACK TO THE THREE STATES I MENTIONED EARLIER, OHIO, NORTH CAROLINA, AND FLORIDA. TRUMP HAD TO WIN ALL THREE TO BECOME PRESIDENT. THIS IS NOTHING BUT GOOD NEWS FOR THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN. MAN: ALONG WITH THAT, IT DOES LOOK LIKE HE DOES HAVE FLORIDA. THOSE THREE COULD GO FOR HIM TO WIN. >>Reporter: GREAT. WE'RE GOING TO TURN IT OVER TO THE SENATE RACES. WE SEE THAT IN NEW HAMPSHIRE IN THE SENATE RACE, YOU SEE THAT KELLY HAS PLUS THREE POINTS WITH 51 PERCENT OF THE VOTES BEING IN RIGHT NOW. SO NEW HAMPSHIRE WITH 43 -- CHRIS, ANDREW, NEW HAMPSHIRE WITH KELLY LEADING, WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THIS? MAN: SHE'S GETTING OFF TO A SLIGHT LEAD. THIS IS WHAT I DID EXPECT. MAGGIE HAS RUN A GREAT RACE BUT I SEE KELLY RETURNING TO THE SENATE. MAN: THIS IS GOING TO BE VERY COMPETITIVE. SHE'S A GOVERNOR AND PROVES SHE COULD WIN A STATEWIDE RACE AND KELLY HAS ALSO PROVEN TO WIN A STATEWIDE RACE AND IT TURNED OUT TO BE COMPETITIVE. BUT KELLY HELD THE MARGIN THROUGHOUT THE POLLING PROCESS. IT WAS DEFINITELY GOING TO BE CLOSE WITH HOW MUCH MONEY THE DNC POURED INTO THIS CAMPAIGN. >>Reporter: OKAY, GREAT. AND THEN WHEN WE TURN TO THE STATE OF WISCONSIN, WE SEE THAT SENATOR JOHNSON HAS 52.20 PERCENT OF THE VOTE AND DEMOCRATIC SIDE HAS 45 PERCENT OF THE VOTE AND 43 PERCENT OF THE VOTES ARE ACTUALLY IN RIGHT NOW. REPUBLICAN JOHNSON IS LEADING RIGHT NOW. WHAT DO YOU GUYS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT THIS IN WISCONSIN? MAN: THIS IS VERY ODD. IT'S A TRADITIONALLY REPUBLICAN DISTRICT. THAT SAYS SOMETHING ABOUT PENNSYLVANIA. ESPECIALLY SOUTHEAST PENNSYLVANIA THAT IT MIGHT BE WEANING A LITTLE BIT DEMOCRATIC AS WE GO ON. MAN: YEAH, CERTAINLY JUST CONTINUES A POSITIVE TREND THAT WE SEE GOING FOR REPUBLICANS AT THE PRESIDENTIAL TICKET AND SENATE BALLOTS AS WELL. >>Reporter: WE'RE GOING TO TURN BACK TO THE MAIN DESK WITH FRANK AND CAT. >>> ONE LAST TIME TO THE MEDIA DESK TO WRAP UP COMMENTS THIS EVENING. >>> TONIGHT, WE'VE DISCUSSED A VARIETY OF MEDIA SOURCES. SOCIAL MEDIA TO TRADITIONAL MEDIA. IN THIS LAST SEGMENT, WE'RE GOING TO DISCUSS TWO DIFFERENT NEWSPAPER ARTICLES. >>> DONALD TRUMP IS SHOWING STRONG AMONG WHITE WORKING CLASS IN RURAL AREAS. ESPECIALLY IN BATTLE GROUND STATES, FLORIDA AND NORTH CAROLINA WHICH ARE CRUCIAL TO HIS CHANCES. IF MR. TRUMP WINS THESE, HE WILL HAVE TO WIN COLORADO, NEW HAMPSHIRE, MICHIGAN, WISCONSIN, OR PENNSYLVANIA TO WIN THE ELECTION. >> WE'LL GET BACK TO YOU SHORTLY WITH THE RESULTS. IF IT GOES AS THEY RECENTLY HAVE MENTIONED, IT'S GOING TO BE A GOOD NIGHT FOR DONALD TRUMP. >> STRENGTH AMONGST WHITE WORKING CLASS VOTERS MAKE IT A REAL POSSIBILITY. >>> MEANWHILE, THE WASHINGTON POST HAS BEEN TRENDING WITH 2 THOUSAND COUNTS. NECK IN NECK BETWEEN TRUMP AND HILLARY. IN SOME VISIONS NIGHTMARES OF THE 2000 RECOUNT BETWEEN GEORGE BUSH AND AL-GORE. OUR COLLEAGUE SPOKE TO LAURA EARLIER TUESDAY ABOUT WHAT WOULD HAPPEN IN THE CASE OF A RECOUNT. APPARENTLY, THE DEMOCRATS ARE LAWYERED UP. SOUNDS LIKE THEY'RE NERVOUS. >> THAT'S ALL FOR THE MEDIA DESK TONIGHT. >> BACK TO YOU. >>> THANKS, GUYS. AND OUR LAST CHECK IN WITH THE POLITICAL UPDATE FOR THE LATEST RESULTS AT THIS TIME. CARLA. >>Reporter: THANKS. SO WE'RE WRAPPING UP TONIGHT AND WE DON'T REALLY KNOW WHAT TO EXPECT FOR THE REST OF THE NIGHT BUT WE SEE THAT RIGHT NOW MR. TRUMP HAS 168 ELECTORAL VOTES AND SECRETARY CLINTON HAS 131 ELECTORAL VOTES. WHAT ARE SOME OF THE DIFFERENT SCENARIOS THAT CAN PLAY OUT TONIGHT? MAN: YEAH, SO OF COURSE THIS IS VERY EXCITING. WHETHER YOU SUPPORT HILLARY CLINTON OR DONALD TRUMP, THIS IS A HISTORIC ELECTION. WE'VE HAD A VERY INTENSE CAMPAIGN FOR ALMOST A JEER YEAR AND A HALF. WHAT WAS ONCE A NARROW PATH TO VICTORY FOR DONALD TRUMP IS BECOMING VERY OPTIMISTIC. IF HE CAN PULL OFF FLORIDA WITH ALMOST ALL THE RESULTS TALLIED, SHOULD BE CALLED RELATIVELY SOON, HE'S GOT A VERY CLEAR PATH. IF THE POLLS STAY IN MICHIGAN AND WISCONSIN AND THESE STATES GO RED, DONALD TRUMP IS OUR NEXT PRESIDENT, FOLKS. MAN: I THINK IT'S A VERY DIFFERENT MAP. I THINK SECRETARY CLINTON WILL DEFINITELY GET PENNSYLVANIA. I THINK SHE SOMEHOW PULLS OFF MICHIGAN. MR. TRUMP IS IN OHIO. THE POLLS IN WISCONSIN ARE CLOSE WHICH IS PRETTY SHOCKING. SECRETARY CLINTON DEFINITELY WINS THAT STATE AND SUDDENLY IT'S REALLY CLOSE. WE'RE LOOKING AT NEW HAMPSHIRE WHICH THE POLLS ARE SAYING IT MIGHT GO TO MR. TRUMP AND FROM THERE, IF SECRETARY CLINTON IS ABLE TO PULL OFF NEVADA, SHE'S GOT THE PRESIDENCY. HOWEVER, IF MR. TRUMP IS ABLE TO PULL OFF NEVADA, SUDDENLY WE'VE GOT A REAL CLOSE RACE. FROM THERE, I HAVE NO IDEA HOW IT WOULD COME DOWN TO THAT BUT THAT COULD BE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MR. TRUMP AND SECRETARY CLINTON WINNING. WITH THE WAY THE POLLS ARE GOING, IT MAY COME DOWN TO NEVADA AND NEW HAMPSHIRE. >>Reporter: THIS IS VERY INTERESTING. THIS HAS BEEN A GREAT NIGHT. WE'VE BEEN UPDATING YOU WITH MORE RESULTS AS IT'S COME IN AND WE WANT TO KNOW WHAT DO YOU GUYS THINK OF MR. TRUMP AND SECRETARY CLINTON? HOW DO YOU THINK THEY WERE ABLE TO GET THESE VOTES AND TRUMP BE IN THE LEAD RIGHT NOW. IS IT MONEY OR OTHER FACTORS? MAN: WELL, TONIGHT'S BEEN A SURPRISE. IN THE PAST 18-20 MONTHS, WAVE' HAD NOTHING SHORT OF SURPRISES WITH THESE TWO. WHAT IT COMES DOWN TO IS THE GET OUT TO VOTE EFFORT AND VOTER TURNOUT. A LOT OF PEOPLE CRITICIZED THE METHODOLOGY OF THE POLLS. I'M HAPPY TO SEE THAT, SOME PEOPLE MAY NOT BE. WE'LL SEE HOW THE NIGHT TURNS OUT. MAN: MR. TRUMP HAS BEEN TARGETING VOTERS THAT DON'T NORMALLY VOTE. THEY'RE IN AN UNEDUCATED VOTING BLOCK BUT THESE PEOPLE ARE COMING OUT. HE'S DRIVING OUT THE VOTE IN RECORD NUMBERS. ANDREW WAS JUST SAYING THAT IN PENNSYLVANIA, THERE HAVE BEEN RECORD NUMBERS IN SOME OF THE DISTRICTS THAT ARE TRADITIONALLY REPUBLICAN DISTRICTS. GET OUT THE VOTE CAMPAIGN WOULD BE DOMINATED WITH THE MOST MONEY WHICH WOULD BE HILLARY CLINTON IN THIS CASE. HOWEVER, DONALD TRUMP'S SOMEHOW BEEN ABLE TO GET PEOPLE OUT TO VOTE WITHOUT HAVING A GREAT ORGANIZATION AND BEING A ONE MAN ARMY WHILE HILLARY CLINTON HAS BEYONCE ON HER SIDE, JAY-Z, LEBRON JAMES AND DONALD TRUMP WITH ONE PERSON AND ONE PERSONALITY HAS BEEN ABLE TO DRIVE OUT THE VOTE AND IT'S INCREDIBLE. >>Reporter: THANK YOU, CHRIS AND ANDREW. WE'LL HEAD BACK TO THE MAIN DESK WITH FRANK AND CAT. >> THANKS, CARLA. WHAT WILL THE LEGACY OF THIS ELECTION BE? >> THE BULLPEN WRAPS UP WITH A FEW COMMENTS ON WHAT THAT ELECTION WILL BE. >>Reporter: THANKS FRANK AND CAT. WELCOME TO OUR FINAL BULLPEN. WE'RE GOING TO BE DISCUSSING THE LEGACY THIS ELECTION WILL HAVE. WE'LL LOOK BACK AT THE NEGATIVITY AND SLANDER. FEEL FREE TO JUMP IN. MAN: WELL, I'LL JUST SAY THAT THIS SEASON HAS BEEN A VERY DIRTY ELECTION. THERE'S VERY LITTLE CLASS WHEN IT CAME TO THE CANDIDATES AND ALL THE NEGATIVITY HAS COME FROM THE CANDIDATES THEMSELVES. WE, AS A HAVE I HAVE A LOT TO LEARN FROM THIS ELECTION AND GOING FORWARD HOPEFULLY WILL DO A LITTLE BETTER. WOMAN: I PERSONALLY FEEL THAT BOTH CANDIDATES HAVE A LOT OF BAGGAGE AND THAT'S COME FROM THE MEDIA. TO ME, IN THIS ELECTION, POLICY DID MATTER MORE. HOWEVER, WITH WHOEVER WIN, I'M GOISGOING S, I'M SGOINGS, I'M SGOING TO BE A LITTLE NERVOUS. >>Reporter: THAT'S A FAIR POINT. WHAT DID THOSE SCANDALS HAVE IMPACT ON YOUR VOTE? WOMAN: THIS ELECTION -- REALLY INFLUENCED BY THE MEDIA AND THEIR CONSTANT PUSHING BY THE SCANDALS, E-MAIL SCANDALS, TRUMP'S COMMENTS TOWARDS WOMEN. ALL OF THESE THINGS HAVE BEEN BUILDING ON EACH OTHER. WHICH SCANDAL WAS GOING TO WIN VERSES OTHER SCANDAL VERSES THE ACTUAL CANDIDATES THEMSELVES. >>Reporter: THAT'S DEFINITELY A FAIR POINT. WE'RE GOING TO TRY TO LOOK AT THE MAIN ISSUES THAT ARE STILL UP IN THE AIR DEPENDING ON WHO WILL WIN THE ELECTION AND ARE VERY KEY TO WHAT SWAYED YOU AND ENDED UP MAKING THE DECISION. LOOKING FORWARD, HOW DOES THIS IMPACT YOUR EVALUATION OF YOURSELF AND POLITICAL PARTY? BRENDA. WOMAN: YEAH, SO I THINK THAT THIS ELECTION HAS TAUGHT ME A LOT ABOUT HOW TO LOOK AT DIFFERENT THINGS IN A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE. I PERSONALLY DON'T AGREE WITH BOTH OF THE CANDIDATES WITH A WHOLE HEART, ESPECIALLY WITH TRUMP, A LOT OF HIS SCANDALS HAVE OUTWEIGHED A LOT OF HILLARY'S IN TERMS OF HOW BAD THEY ARE. I DON'T THINK HE'S VERY QUALIFIED TO BE THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES AND I THINK HILLARY EVEN -- DESPITE THE FACT THAT SHE'S VERY CORRUPT, I THINK SHE'S ONE OF THE MOST QUALIFIED PRESIDENTS. WITH THIS KIND OF EXPERIENCE, NEXT ELECTION TIME, I THINK THAT IT'S DEFINITELY A GOOD THING TO LOOK MORE INTO WHAT THEY'VE DONE IN THE PAST AND WHAT THEY'LL HELP TO DO IN THE FUTURE. >>Reporter: THAT'S A FAIR POINT. GIVEN THE FACT THAT THESE ARE TWO OF THE UNPOPULAR IN HISTORY, A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE DISSATISFIED. DO YOU THINK THERE ARE GOING TO BE ANY REFORM OF TWO PARTIES AND HOW THEY SELECT THEIR CANDIDATES IN THE FUTURE? WOMAN: DEFINITELY. I THINK BOTH PARTIES LEARNED THEIR LESSON WITH THIS ELECTION. THE POLLS HAVE BEEN ASTONISHING WITH HOW DISSATISFIED THE PUBLIC IS WITH THE OPTIONS WE HAVE. GOING FORWARD, SENATORS AND CONGRESSMAN SHOULD WORK TOGETHER AND MAKE REFORMS SO THAT IN THE FUTURE, WE GET A CANDIDATE THAT BOTH PARTIES CAN AGREE OR EVEN IF THEY'RE NOT THE MOST QUALIFIED OR WELL LIKED BY THE POPULATION. >>Reporter: THAT'S A FAIR POINT. LOOKING AT THE SENATE AND HOUSE AS WELL, IT SEEMS THAT MIGHT LEAD TO FUTURE GRID LOCK. WOMAN: YEAH, I THINK A LOT OF GRID LOCK IN CONGRESS DECREASES VOTER TURNOUT. I KNOW THAT THAT EFFECTS A LOT OF THE PUBLIC'S OPINIONS ON POLITICS. THERE'S A LOT OF POLITICAL DISTRUST ON THE PUBLIC BECAUSE OF THE FACT THAT CONGRESS SEEMS TO BE VERY SLOW AND SLUGGISH EVEN IF THEY DO GET THINGS DONE. I THINK IF, FOR INSTANCE, WE CAN MAKE A CONGRESS THAT'S MORE WILLING TO WORK WITH OTHERS, THAT WILL DEFINITELY INCREASE THE VOTER TURNOUT AND THE PUBLIC'S TRUST IN GOVERNMENT. >>Reporter: FAIR POINT. LIKE ALWAYS, THERE'S PLENTY MORE TO BE SAID ON THIS. FOR EVERYONE ELSE THAT'S BEEN ON THE BULLPEN TONIGHT, FRANK AND CAT, BACK TO YOU. >> THANKS, CAMERON. TONIGHT IS TURNING OUT TO BE A [gunshot] [Native American flute music] male narrator: IN 1999, A JOINT RESOLUTION OF CONGRESS RECOGNIZED THE ATHLETE OF THE 20TH CENTURY. [children shouting] crack! IT WAS NOT BABE RUTH OR LOU GEHRIG, JESSE OWENS OR MUHAMMAD ALI. INSTEAD IT WAS A MAN TODAY MANY HAVE NEVER HEARD OF... [upbeat acoustic music] AN INDIAN FROM OKLAHOMA NAMED JIM THORPE.

Primaries

Both John Carl West and Albert Watson faced no opposition in their party's primaries which allowed both candidates to concentrate solely on the general election.

General election

The general election was held on November 3, 1970 and John Carl West was elected as the next governor of South Carolina. Turnout was even higher than the previous gubernatorial election because of the recent enfranchisement of black voters and the controversial candidacy of Albert Watson.
