6:04 am
to reelection. ♪ >> election protests taking a turn overnight chaotic, in new york city nearly 60 people arrested with clashes breaking out with police. in portland police declared a riot as fires were set in the streets, at least one officer was hit by molotov cocktail. and in denver, 8 people arrested for fighting with people smashing school windows and setting off fireworks as well. the u.s. is hitting new in the first against coronavirus, faced topped more than 102,000 wednesday alone, all-time high according to john hopkins, 9.5 million confirmed cases, more than 233,000 people have died with cases related to covid. americans watching and waiting for results in key battleground
6:05 am
states meanwhile as controversy over voting practices is mounting this morning. edward lawrence with details, edward. >> now the tied may be swinging the other direction. later today we will again start counting votes in nevada. if the current board holds, the president needs to win all 4 states left, pennsylvania, north carolina, georgia and nevada. so yesterday former vice president joe biden coming out and claiming victory while saying he's not claiming victory listen. >> and now after a long night of counting it's clear that we are winning enough states to reach 270 electoral votes needed to win the presidency. i'm not here to declare that we've won but i'm here to report when the count is finished we believe we will be the winners. >> now the trump campaign says that the process of some of these states are using to count
6:06 am
the votes lacks transparency, on twitter the president saying lawyers asked for meaningful access, he adds what good has that do, the damage is done to integrity of the system, lawsuits in pennsylvania, nevada over better access to campaign observers. in new lawsuits trump campaign wants better access in michigan and halt counting in pennsylvania until they get in to watch. >> we have no idea if they really are balanced. we have no idea if they are signed, if they are postmarked properly. >> this comes on top of asking for recount in wisconsin. you first heard on your show yesterday, 24 hours ago that trump surrogates the trump for arizona in biden's favor was premature, fox news election desk stands by prediction, the campaign, though, continues to believe that the votes left to count can narrow the margin there, back to you.
6:07 am
maria: thank you so much. extraordinary times we are living in. edward lawrence joining us. joining us to discuss results real clear politics philip wegmann. dagen mcdowell, gianno caldwell. ganno caldwell. >> this is not traditional campaigning anymore. this is a pr operation as well as legal fight and it's hear that from what we are hearing from campaign, they still see a path to victory throughout this. they were projecting yesterday during call with reporters that we can narrow the results by the end of the week. the reason they are fighting so
6:08 am
hard is they think their internal data shows them with a path to victory and so now you have the trump campaign working those different permutations to see which combination of electoral college votes can keep them in the white house. maria: i guess we shouldn't be surprised over confusion of mail-in ballots and charges of potential fraud. we spoke with the attorney general bill barr earlier this year who said be careful for mail-in ballots. take a listen to this. there's a big discussion about mail-in voting, hillary clinton said it's fine and fair. >> it absolutely opens the flood gates to fraud. those things are delivered into mailboxes and taken out and questions about whether or not it even denies a secret ballot because a lot of the states have you signing the outside of the envelope and so the person who open it is envelope will know how people voted.
6:09 am
a foreign country can print thousands of counterfeit ballots and it can -- it can upset and undercut the confidence in the integrity of our elections. if anything, we should tighten them up right now. maria: philip, that was back in june of this year, tell me your sense of where we are and whether or not we will be able to get to the bottom of this for an honest election. some states it's the first time they've ever done mail-in ballots, right? >> right, so, maria, this is not something that comes as a surprise to you or anyone else. you mentioned that clip was from june. when we talked to the president in july he was talking about how mail-in ballots could throw the election in the other direction. and, look, whether you agree or disagree with republicans, this
6:10 am
is something that they've been warning about or some time. we are in this position now where, you know, folks on the left seem to think that there are no problems with the system where people on the right, you know, are very worried about it. the election experts that i was talking to over the summer who were looking at this in a nonpartisan way were saying that, you know, with this big influx of new mail-in ballots, because of the coronavirus, there needed to be more infrastructure set up to allow for a smooth process and frankly i don't think the united states has really learned our lessons this time. hopefully if there is another presidential election that comes to a wire we will have a better system in place. maria: yeah, i mean, it's all about trust and you want the public to trust the system. i mean, the trump campaign right now in terms of holding battlegrounds accountable, they are suing michigan, pennsylvania, georgia in an effort to ensure fair treatment
6:11 am
amid the mounting controversy over voting practices. in michigan the campaign is suing over lack of access for republican challengers to monitor ballot counts. the campaign is doing the same in pennsylvania, challenging the state over extension of proof of id corrections by 3 days and in georgia the campaign suing to require officials to separate mail-in ballots that arrived after 7:00 p.m. on election day. philip, these are not extraordinary things, you would think there's a deadline in place on election day to stop accepting ballots. do you think -- what do you think the outcome of the lawsuits will mean for the election results? >> we are going to find out what the tangible effect is but we are watching in realtime that you have a lot of voters who are suddenly doubting the institutions that they have put their faith in. i know a lot of us focus on the nitty gritty, inside of politics and you have a lot of individuals that voted one way and went to bed that one
6:12 am
candidate was likely going to win this thing and woke up the next day to see that candidate's lead evaporate in numerous states. i think that part of this, certainly in the media we need to educate folks but on the other hand, you have a lot of folks who are scratching their head while this thing is being debated. maria: yeah, all right, philip, great to get your insights this morning. thank you, sir. philip wegmann, big show coming up. coming up indiana congressman jim banks is here to talk about reelection and florida former secretary of state katherine harris, key member in the 2000 florida recount and discussing battle amid claims of voter fraud. parlor founder john macy is here including on one of my tweets that was flagged. investors are eyeing the vote count in key states with the word on wall street, how to
6:13 am
allocate capital and all of this. we have oklahoma senator james lankford with his take on presidential election, former white house chief strategist steve bannon as campaign gears up for legal battle. jason miller taking us inside the campaign as he battles potential voter fraud. don't miss a moment of it, you're watching mornings with maria live on fox business. we will be right back.
6:14 am
about any changes in medicines you're taking. the most common side effects are swelling of the arms and legs and confusion.
6:15 am
we spoke up and it made all the difference. ask your parkinson's specialist about nuplazid. that's why i get up in the morning! i have a secret method for remembering all my hr passwords. my boss doesn't remember approving my time off. let's just... find that email. the old way of doing business slows everyone down. with paycom, employees enter and manage their own hr data in one easy-to-use software.
6:16 am
visit paycom.com for a free demo. maria: welcome back it has been 2 days since the november presidential election. the outcome is still in play. the race hinges on razer-thin margins and lawsuits, 410 points, markets are celebrating gridlock in government. the nasdaq up 343 points. we are talking about a nearly 3% gain right out of the gate for the nasdaq this morning. s&p 500 almost 2%, 67 points higher and yesterday investors were seeking safety in technology as well. big rally yesterday. the dow closed up, it was off of
6:17 am
the session highs but nonetheless higher by 367 points, nasdaq was up almost 4% yesterday, 430 points higher and the s&p was higher by 74. joining me right now ubs financial services private wealth adviser alli mccartney. what does election uncertainty mean for markets at this point? >> well, look, none of us thought we would be here yesterday or today, right, the most likely scenario has now become the least likely scenario and the markets seems to be celebrating that or instead of pricing in what is going to happen, we think priced out the blue wave and the market seemed to love it and rationalized that that would be good for the economy, we are now at a point where taking out the blue wave and taking out what you said, regulation and increases in
6:18 am
corporate tax, individual income tax has become a boom for the market. nasdaq outperform and the only thing that outperformed the nasdaq was health care. here we go, we even have a little boom for energy right now when we talk about getting whole green initiative. risk assets having a lot of tailwinds. maria: risk assets and i want to ask you about that. new op-ed in the journal by editorial board, a pelosi-schumer defeat and in it they write a gop senate would mean the end of the biden-bernie sanders unity agenda. no death to the legislative filibuster. no new u.s. states, no supreme court packing and no increases, no green new deal. that is what you're saying that the market is reacting to that you get that -- that sweep off
6:19 am
the table. tell me about those risk assets, where is the growth right now or the opportunity for growth? >> so i think short-term growth is most definitely in areas like health care. you still -- i wouldn't think you had room to move in tech especially where we are. we have a pandemic going on that's been coloring most of our world now, we are sort of looking at this. but i think what you're going to see is a continued rotation as everybody has said, we are going to have slower economic growth. it's going to be a tougher climb but, again, you do have more tailwinds. you do have more pushing risk assets. you will have the fiscal fortitude is less than hoped. we are back to the fed. there's no alternative. you will have a weak dollar, so you are going to get into the cyclical trade.
6:20 am
biden in the white house, which seems quite likely, some things on the margin too in terms of sustainable energy in terms of some movement forward in health care, you're still going to see those but i think that you have to continue this rotation and you have to get risk on. maria: all right, real quick on october job's report due out tomorrow, we are expecting 600,000 jobs added to the economy, unemployment rate to tick down and there's also talk this morning on some of the wall street notes i've seen of enactment of fiscal stimulus plan lower than what we were talking about but $700 billion in the lame-duck session. is all of this priced into the market, do you think we will see a surprise tomorrow with the job's number real quick? >> i don't think the jobs matter, we knew october started to pull back. fiscal 700 will disappoint, the markets are losing for loser to
6:21 am
a trillion, 1 and a half to 2. again, it just means that things are less supportive today than they will be tomorrow but we have no alternatives to get in and push for risk and growth. maria: all right. we will leave it there. alli, good to see you, have a good day. ally mccartney from ubs. non-valvular afib can mean a lifetime of blood thinners.
6:22 am
and if you're troubled by falls and bleeds, worry follows you everywhere. over 100,000 people have left blood thinners behind with watchman. it's a one-time, minimally invasive procedure that reduces stroke risk-- and bleeding worry--for life. watchman. it's one time. for a lifetime. adapting. innovating. lsetting the course. but new ways of working demand a new type of network. one that's more than just fast. you need flexibility- to work from anywhere. and manage from everywhere. advanced technology. with serious security. and reliable coverage, nationwide.
6:23 am
forward-thinking enterprises, deserve forward-thinking solutions. and that's what we deliver. so bounce forward, with comcast business.
6:24 am
maria: the presidential race tightness, fox news calling swing states michigan and wisconsin for former vice president joe biden yesterday. president trump now wants a recount in the badger state called for joe biden by a slight margin. the trump campaign also announced that they are filing a lawsuit in michigan to observe ballot counts. dagen mcdowell, your reaction. dagen: every vote validly cast
6:25 am
should be counted. that being said, the wall street journal has editorial about wisconsin and michigan. you were looking at the numbers there, at last look wisconsin was being led by biden, by just 20,000 votes, that's .6 percentage points. if you -- there are -- in the last recount 4 years ago in wisconsin, it barely kind of moved the needle as the wall street journal editorial pointed. i will point out, back in 2011 in an election then, wisconsin county clerk announced that 14,000 votes were missed because she failed to click save on her computer, so, again, like it might not be nefarious, it might not be fraud, but we have -- in these states in particular it's just right for errors.
6:26 am
by the way, in michigan, for example, all the trump lawsuits -- because, again, the message from the left, again, they are so off base and have been for 5 years is they want to stop the vote count. no, that's not what the trump campaign is doing. they filed the lawsuit in michigan to halt the counting of absentee ballots alleging that local election officials were violating the state law proceeding without election inspectors from both parties. so fairness is the question at hand. it's not about disenfranchising voters and not counting validly cast votes, it's to make sure the counting is fair. does the left need me to spell it for them? maria: exactly. this is about trust, gianno, trump campaign is filing lawsuits, michigan, pennsylvania and georgia, greater access to campaign observeers where
6:27 am
ballots are being counted. we know what took place in 2016. this was also election interference. the coup to take down donald trump. i said this many times. they cheated in '16, are they going to cheat in 2020. people do not trust the system and we need accountability and that means due diligence on all of this. gianno: donald trump ran against joe biden, communist china, social media and the elites. don't know what's the case but some may come to conclusions seeing how much obstruction and voter suppression we saw through twitter and we saw through the mainstream media. on another note that's different, donald trump won the largest share of african-american votes since 1960's, he made insane inroads in the latino community, almost 20% of black men.
6:28 am
i think as we move forward whether donald trump wins or loses, the gop needs to take real note on what attracted to the party and focused and targeted on the communities. that's how you win over the communities. perfect job of that. dagen: gianno, the left needs to pay attention to it. gianno: 100%. dagen: political operatives year after year, everybody who supported trump was called a racist, bigot and i have not seen a baby hater and baby killer. trump's coalition proved durable, duh. of course it did, people have been completely blinded and deafened by their own madness. they didn't learn the lesson 4
6:29 am
years ago and regardless of race, people don't like being told what to do and censored. gianno: 100%. that's why i said he ran against the elites. i wrote on it, take it for granted. maria: trump won largely hispanic areas, big black areas. riddle me that, that this is the guy whose -- the left has called a racist when, in fact, these communities have actually voted for him. so it was a great segment last night on tucker actually. we will slip in a break. gearing up for a legal battle. how president trump campaign can fight back over potential election fraud. will they get to the bottom of it and then tieing the knot a mile high, social-distance wedding but it will cost you, comingto up
6:30 am
for smarter trading decisions. fidelity. and i'm still going for my best. even though i live with a higher risk of stroke due to afib not caused by a heart valve problem. so if there's a better treatment than warfarin, i'm on top of that. eliquis. eliquis is proven to reduce stroke risk better than warfarin. plus has significantly less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis is fda-approved and has both.
6:31 am
what's next? getting out there. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. ask your doctor about eliquis. and if your ability to afford your medication has changed, we want to help. your medication has changed, before money, people tools, cattle, grain, even shells represented value. then currency came along. they made it out of copper, gold, silver, wampum. soon people decided to put all that value into a piece of paper, then proceeded to wave goodbye to value, printing unlimited amounts of money as they passed the buck to the future.

6:33 am
maria: welcome back, good thursday morning, everybody. thanks so much for joining us. i'm maria bartiromo and it is thursday november 5th, let's take a look at markets this morning, 6:32 a.m. on the east coast. we have a rally underway with high it was morning, futures indicating a gain out of 400 points, nasdaq is up 330, that's almost 3% and the s&p right now up 65. 1.9% as well. 2020 election looking good for wall street in divided government expectations all three major indices finished for the third time this week yesterday with a big triple-digit move with 36 t at the close and it was almost 4%. s&p higher by 74. investors finding safety in technology and healthcare stocks, those two group the leadership. european markets, bank of england holding rates steady at one tenth of a percent. first day of new month and long lockdowns in the uk. the ftse 100 nonetheless up 28.
6:34 am
cac quarante 57 and dax index higher by 202. in asia overnight, green across the board as well. big moves in hong kong, up 3 and a quarter percent on the hang seng index. well, control of the senate hinges on four uncalled electioned. markets are reacting to divided government and the paper is not even dry, the ink on the paper, cheryl. cheryl: that's what markets seem to be thinking. the senate is expected to stay in republican hands with both parties flipping seats. democrats need to pick up 4 seats to gain control of the senate or 3 if joe biden claims the white house, so far they've gained 2 in colorado and arizona, but republicans flipped in alabama seat in their favor. so it's a net 1. many vulnerable republicans beat the odds and basically proved the poll numbers, maine's republican senator susan collins to ward off her democratic challenger there and in north carolina republican senator thom tillis has declared victory
6:35 am
though still democrat cal waiting on counting. republican john james isn't convince and in alaska, republican dan sullivan is ahead and expect today win although the state schedule for counting the absentee ballots could delay the results maybe for a few days. then there's going to be a january fifth runoff for georgia between republican kelly loeffler and rafael, that's january 5th, you spoke with ally mccarthy about stimulus, mitch mcconnell ready to return to washington. the country needs another rescue package before the end of the year. >> clearly the coronavirus is not gone. in fact, we have it worse now than the spring. i think that's job 1 when we get back. hopefully with a more
6:36 am
cooperative situation than we had. cheryl: mcconnell and house speaker nancy pelosi have to work together to pass spending bill by december 11th, otherwise the government will shut down. the tiktok battle continues. dc judge on wednesday said he was unsure if he had the grounds to issue a new injunction on the app. previous rule banning the app on november 12th can still be overruled. lawyers for the trump administration say the shutdown is meant to prevent china from obtaining data on tiktok users. the race for a coronavirus vaccine astrazeneca expects trials later this year. beat quarter estimates, data in octobers says vaccine produce immune response in old and young adults. successful vaccine in later december and early 2021. the country just issued new lockdowns. finally this, biogen receiving boost on wednesday, shares went
6:37 am
up 44% yesterday after fda regulators gave a positive assessment of experimental alzheimer's drug. the biotech drug expected to make case for approval. if it gets the green light first patients with early alzheimer's, positive news there. those are your headlines. maria: thank you so much. the results of 2020 election up in the air this morning as voters in several key battleground states remain to be counted. the trump campaign is moving toward lawsuits in michigan, pennsylvania and georgia in an effort to ensure fair treatment of votes, personal attorney for president trump rudy giuliani and bob bowew speaking out on the lawsuits yesterday. >> we will continue with the lawsuit and bring a second one and then we will bring a federal lawsuit and we are going to take a very good look as to whether
6:38 am
we bring this nationally. we will bring it here in wisconsin, quite possibly a national lawsuit and really expose the corruption of the democrat party. >> they lost wisconsin, he lost in michigan, he lost in philadelphia, he lost in arizona, he's trying to claw back this defeat and try to turn it to legal action. maria: actually he did not lose in all of those states because they are still being counted so we don't know the answer to that but joining me right now constitutional and election law attorney partner clita mitchell, thank you very much for joining us. tell me your thoughts on where we stand here. >> well, let's just remember the president said in may or june that he was worried about the massive numbers of absentee ballots, and the mail ballots and he had ever reason to be worried about that. essentially what people don't
6:39 am
realize is that over the last 18 months the democratic party apparatus and massive left-wing allies network filed literally hundreds of lawsuits all over the country to up-end the state election laws and the name of coronavirus but this is nothing -- the outcomes they were seeking were to extend the deadlines to send ballots to people whether they were alive or dead and so now we are reaping the results of those judges all over the country who have rewritten election laws and you have the situation in pennsylvania where the legislature changed the law to allow for the first time in pennsylvanian history and no excuse absentee balloting and then you have the democratic elected official who threw out the statutory requirements for signature and chief election
6:40 am
officer unilaterally did this in september and decided to extend the deadline for submitting ballots. they are continuing to submit ballots in pennsylvania in georgia and in nevada and in north carolina. that's really one to have big issues. the statute says election day was tuesday and they're continuing to accept ballots. that's part of the reason for the litigation. maria: it's unbelievable, really. increasingly people are just not trusting the system. i mean, if there is actually fraud, will they be able to get to the bottom of it? if there actually was what the trump campaign is suggesting here, do you think they would be successful in identifying it, can you get to the bottom of it at this point? >> look. it's very difficult. i understand that one -- two of the lawsuits are filed in georgia and the suit filed in michigan both are demanding that the election officials open up
6:41 am
the process and allow the observers that the statutes envision. a lot of the election officials disregard the law that requires that you have someone from each party overseeing this process and they close it off and that's what's happened and so then you have situations where there are whistleblowers coming forward saying that ballots have been mysteriously appearing in michigan. well, you know, these things do happen and if you don't have transparency and you disregard the -- the requirement of having oversight of people by both parties, both campaigns, then how can people trust that you don't have people manufacturing ballots, making injury that the postmarks were prior to the election and all the things that the law has been put in place to protect the integrity of the election and the left and the democrats have been trying to literally create chaos and
6:42 am
eliminate all of those protections. they don't want to clean the voter roles and insist on sending ballots to everybody on the voter roles and we know how polluted they are. so it's a problem. i'm hoping we can get to the bottom of it. i have always thought if it were fair and honest process the president would win. so that's what we have to see if we can make sure that that happens. >> unbelievable, clita, people are not going to trust, this is the stuff of banana republics. >> it is. maria: ballots under a rock, ballots in a garbage and people to use highlighters or sharpy pencils, markers that don't take in the machines, it's all quite extraordinary and the trump administration is saying, look, we want all legal ballots counted, you know, they are trying to say he doesn't want ballots counted but he wants all legal ballots counted which i

maria: welcome back, global reaction to uncertain election, ballots are still being counted this morning in a number of battleground states. countries across europe and elsewhere tracking the results of america's economy and election. german defense and economic minister kt guttenberg, how closely is europe watching things? >> oh, we are watching very closely. good morning, maria, from germany in partial lockdown. we are watching a friend, partner, ally where everyone hoped for clear results. worst thing for europeans that
6:48 am
can happen international stage is contested election, election where it's unclear where the united states will stand on some topics that are not domestic and plays into the hands for those who would like to drive a further wedge into western unionty. i'm quite concerned quite right now, maria, if you look at the topics that are looming on the horizon that we might have china with a big smile, that we might have turkey with a big smile or russia with a big smile in the period where the u.s. is looking for results. maria: yeah, i think that's a great point. let me ask you about your lockdown there. coronavirus cases have spiked across europe, kt, england reentering a four-week lockdown effective today following similar measures taken in france and germany. france and the uk report the most covid deaths since spring. kt, the lockdowns enough to slow down the new wave of infections and how would you characterize things in germany with a lockdown in place now?
6:49 am
>> well, germany, dramatically spiking and it is -- it is a rather, i'd say predramatic situation right now. why? because the people have had their first experience with the lockdown and now playing with that kind of renewed patience asking the people to step up again and to keep us is quite a challenge and now we are ahead of the winter and within the winter a lot of things can happen. there's enormous amount of uncertainty and enormous amount of not really alignment between the european member states so that makes it hard to find a solution that would last. maria: yeah, and in terms of the impact on the economy, kt, you're already talking about a fragile situation in germany and throughout europe in terms of economic recovery. >> in fact, it's enormous and, of course, you try to walk on a

7:03 am
point and-a-half. in pennsylvania president trump is leading by more than two and-a-half points. very close battleground states still being counted. the trump campaign is taking legal action in three battleground states, michigan, georgia and pennsylvania. that one could end up in the supreme court, president trump's attorney rudy guliani explains. >> not a single republican has been able to look at any one of these mail ballots. they could be from mars as far as we're concerned. or they could be from the democratic national committee. maria: the biden campaign firing back, saying they are ready for a court battle. >> if they want to push it up, put something up to the supreme court one way or the other, presumably they can do that. we're not worried about it. we're winning the election. we've won the election. we don't have to do anything but protect the rights of voters. maria: president trump won on three states in the 2016 election and needs again to win those states for re-election.
7:04 am
election protests taking a turn overnight from mainly peaceful to chaotic. take a look at the pictures in new york city, nearly 60 people were arrested last night after clashes with police broke out. in portland, oregon, police declared a riot as fires were set in the streets. at least one officer was hit by a molotov cocktail and in denver eight people are arrested for fighting with police, smashing store windows, setting off fireworks in denver. meanwhile, this. the u.s. is hitting a first new -- a new first in the fight against coronavirus, cases topped more than 102,000 on wednesday alone, that is an all-time high according to johns hopkins, the u.s. has nearly 9.5 million confirmed cases of coronavirus, more than 233,000 reported deaths. republicans gaining several seats in the house during tuesday's election, one notable race was the third district of indiana, incumbent congressman jim banks defeated his democratic challenger chip
7:05 am
coldiron by over 100,000 votes. joining me now is the winner, jim banks. also joining the conversation all morning long is fox business' dagen mcdowell and fox news political analyst, the author of taken for granted, gianno caldwell. congratulations to you. thanks very much for being here. >> thank you very much. it's great to be with you. maria: tell us, congressman, what you think the election told us in terms of the congressional races. >> well, there's no question about it that the voters nationwide held nancy pelosi and house democrats accountable for their tactics over the last two years, from impeachment, all of the theatrics and the committee hearings. they had enough and they shrunk the house democrat majority by a wide margin. and the reason that's significant, maria, is because for the next two years if republicans remain in the minority, there's still an outside shot we could win back enough seats to gain a minority. it's unlikely. the democrat majority will be so thin that you're going to see
7:06 am
the civil war within the democrat party, between the socialist wing, the aocs and ilhan omar versus the more mainstream members of the democrat party more than you've seen before in a single digit democrat majority. maria: actually, for that reason, i was expecting the republicans to take the house. why do you think it fell short in that regard? >> well, that's a good question. the same reasons that we're seeing the president slip in some of these democrat run states because of tactics like ballot harvesting and other techniques by the democrats. it's important to remember that the very first thing that house democrats did when nancy pelosi took the gavel back as speaker of the house two years ago was they passed hr-1, symbolically they gave it hr-1 the title because it was their top priority. it was an election reform bill to do things like put the election process in their favor through allowing ballot harvesting and other techniques. so that was their tactic two
7:07 am
years ago when they took the majority, long before the coronavirus and before the pandemic. they couldn't get it done. they passed it out of the house but it was so radical the senate killed it but they were able to get this done in democrat-run states and by changing the rules and putting the election process in their favor in the same way in these states that are holdouts like pennsylvania, wisconsin, michigan, other states with democrat governors, they were able to get it done in those states but that's what they tried to pass nationwide. i think a lot of that is the reason we didn't win back more house seats to win the majority. maria: that's a really important point, congressman. dagen mcdowell, jump in here. >> i'll quote dave wasserman, i guess it's okay to still call people pollsters, but he's an analyst. the democrats suffered a catastrophic loss of hispanic support that cost key seats. the suburban revolve never progressed beyond two years ago and the gop likely doubled its ranks of women, also more black
7:08 am
americans voting for republicans. what are you going to do, what is the party going to do to make sure that you continue to expand those kind of voting coalitions? >> that's a great question. president trump taught us exactly what to do. is to appeal to the working class american people in a way that the republicans have failed to do for decades before president trump. it's the trump agenda, better trade deals, putting the american worker first, immigration laws that put americans first, rather than those who come here illegally. president trump taught us exactly how to appeal to latino voters, voters who come from a minority background. on top of that it's being the type of republican party that goes out and recruits good candidates. we flipped the script on what democrats did two years ago when they won the majority. they did it by recruiting women and veterans. i helped recruit dozens of
7:09 am
candidates around the country who are veterans who are winning in a lot of these tough battleground districts. we did what they did a couple years ago. at the same time it's because of president trump that we won over the middle class voters that republicans have lost in recent elections. maria: all right, congressman, it's an incredible moment in time that we are all participating in, witnessing. it's good to sigh, get your insights. we'll keep checking back. thank you, sir. >> thank you. maria: congressman jim banks. coming up next we're looking at markets with investors eyeing the vote count in key states. we have the word of on wall street coming up. former secretary of state cat run harris is here, she was a key player in the 2000 florida recount, she will discuss the election battle. the founder of parler here on big tech censorship. next hour we have oklahoma senator james langford, former white house chief strategist

7:11 am
7:12 am
7:13 am
maria: welcome back. it's time for the word on wall street. the 2020 presidential election outcome is still in play. two days left. the race is hinging on razor thin margins in four battleground states. joining me right now is mark mattson and corner stone macro's co-founder and chief economist, nancy lazar. the election looking good for wall street, features are up 350 points on top of a triple digit gain yesterday. one state we're watching is arizona, maricopa county releasing new election results showing biden maintaining a lead over trump by just 4 points although the lead is shrinking. you live in arizona. give me your assessment of where
7:14 am
we are and the impact on markets. >> i think the impact on markets here, we're over 80% of the votes counted now. maricopa county is a huge county and we'll have to be patient here. i think patience for investors is the message right now. look, this thing could go on to the end of the week or even potentially longer with lawsuits in the works. and investors tend to panic when things are stressful, when there's a lot of doubt, when there's a lot of fear. my message to investors is stay invested, don't panic, don't jump out of the market and start to diversify your portfolio, not just in the united states, most investors are very highly tilted towards large stocks, toward tech stocks. in 2000 those tech stocks lost 75% of their value. have you to be diversified internationally, you have to own small and value stocks and risk in your portfolio, you want high quality, short-term fixed income. this he's a long game.
7:15 am
don't get too trapped down trying to predict what's going to happen in the short term. maria: yeah. nancy, i know that markets like divided governments and that's what we're seeing and there's an op-ed in the join journal this morning, the pelosi/schumer defeat, they write a gop senate would mean the end of the biden/bernie sanders unity agenda, no death to the legislative filibuster, no new u.s. states, no supreme court packing, no green new deal. your colleagues also go you through, andy highlighted that some bipartisan bills that actually could get done. i want to ask you about that and your most recent report saying that the world turns very wavy. nancy, let's highlight some things that could get done and your colleagues write that it could be a smaller economic stimulus package. i've been reporting on something along the lines of 7 or $800 billion, on-shoring agenda, we know that's president trump bripriority of.
7:16 am
we also saw joe biden talking about. that an infrastructure bill is possible and modest drug price controls. do you think these happen with divided government? >> first of all, the private sector was already driving those sectors, the on-shoring theme has been in place for many years. you were already getting infrastructure as a result of private investment. that was continuing to increase. quite frankly, what government policy could do is indeed further reinforce the strength in those sectors, continued manufacturing, continued infrastructure, incremental support for the consumer. we don't need a sugar high fiscal stimulus package from washington right now. the underlying health in the economy was good going into the crisis, it's recovered more quickly than anybody would have expected. so yeah, incremental government support for sectors that were already doing well. the best thing that we didn't have -- the odds of a blue wave have gone down dramatically as the journal article noted this morning. that was so encouraging.
7:17 am
that was the biggest risk from the election that you would have massive stimulus, mandating higher minimum wage which would have destroyed the business community and destroyed jobs. i can totally understand why the market is doing what it's doing. net the private sector was driving growth, incremental support from the government is good. you're going to get stronger productivity growth which gets you stronger profitability which gets you stronger jobs. yeah, should continue to support a decent financial market here. maria: and in the meantime, than circumstance you write the v rebound in global growth is over, lots of series are back up to prior highs. china's gdp, housing, retail sales. so it's hard for double digit growth to continue. tell me what's going on in terms of the backdrop here, nancy. you talked yesterday a lot about the purchasing manager's index. what are you seeing in terms of the economic recovery. >> the global expansion is now going to continue and it's going to be driven by both the united
7:18 am
states and asia, china, in particular. you're really seeing the wave out of europe. they don't have the big drivers of growth and so they've gotten hit again unfortunately by another major surge in covid cases and they're shutting down and so the eurozone is at risk of a double dip here right now in the fourth quarter, maybe even into the first quarter because they don't have major support from business investment and they still have a very fragile job market. that's not the case in the united states. u.s. gdp growth will slow. we have 5% for the fourth quarter. there's nothing wrong with that. if anything, that's double what we had the last expansion. and then we'll slow incrementally more into 2021 but a solid expansion is likely here in the united states. a 4% next year, maybe 2 and-a-half, 3 in the following years. we're going to get that unemployment rate down the right way, through the private sector. china's also going to be an incremental support for the global economy, they're going through their own structural changes, more moderate growth.
7:19 am
we saw that in their data over the past week. but healthy growth with low inflation. net continued global expansion with less inflationary pressures both here in the united states, because of improving productivity, also less commodity inflation from a china boom and so this election outcome maybe isn't ideal, but it is net going to help support the u.s. economy in particular, but also global growth. maria: all right. we will watch all of that. mark, nancy, great to see you both. we have a market rallying this morning on much of what nancy was just saying, coming up, president trump's comeback. the pollster who predicted the president's victory will join me next on how he can do it again as more votes are still being counted. we'll get his assessment of where he are. hearing from the trump campaign, senior advisor jason miller is here next hour on how the president's team plans to move forward with the lawsuits and investigation into voter fraud. you're watching "mornings with maria" live on fox business. one day we'll look back
7:20 am
and remember the moment that things, for one strange time in our lives, got very quiet. we worried over loved ones, over money, over our planet, and over takeout. let's remember this time when so many struggled to feel secure, and build a future where everyone can. because when the world seems like it's standing still... that's the perfect time for us to change it.

maria: welcome back. well, the race for the white house is still on. ballots still being counted in several battleground states this morning, as we await calls to be made in pennsylvania, georgia, nevada and north carolina. joining me right now is the trifalgar group ceo, robert kahali. you correctly predicted a president trump victory in 2016. you predicted re-election this time around. are you standing by that call? >> yes. as a matter of fact, one of the things -- maria, if you notice when we put out our projection, we did add this line about we were basing this projection on verified postmarked and matching voter signatures and i think if
7:24 am
these votes are counted this way, then i will absolutely believe that he will be victorious. what's going on is very questionable and all anybody wants is the actual legitimate votes to be cast. everyone has a right to vote and that right should be exercised but this process has got to be transparent and those postmarks have got to be there and the matching voter signatures have to be there as well. maria: well, that is exactly right. we all just want a fair election and we do not want our liberties trampled on. another thing that you told me was that you were expecting fraud in pennsylvania. >> and, you know, we'll see. i said from the very beginning, i expect that he would have to win by 4 or 5 to overcome that built-in fraud based on some of the rulings that have happened in philadelphia's history and i think he may very well have done that. so we'll see what happens.
7:25 am
it's like to me, if he's gotten the 4 or 5% then he'll probably end up winning the thing by 2 or 3%. but it's very troublesome the way this is going down. maria: very troublesome. look, ballots are still being counted in arizona this morning, robert. overnight, the maricopa county released new election results, after the arrival of 62,000 additional ballots. one phoenix-based data firm said it's confident that the grand canyon state will remain red this election as more votes come in. fox news already called the state for joe biden as you know, robert. your reaction to what's taking place in arizona? >> it seems to me that one of the things we noticed in trends as we were measuring this election -- i might point out that we have the most accurate polls of anybody in the cycle, and across the board, is that we noticed that people who voted early and voted early, early,
7:26 am
they voted in the beginning of the early voting process tend to favor biden and the rest of the democrats. those who voted later in the process, either by mailing their ballot late or by bringing their ballot to the election voting center and dropping it off tended to skew republicans. so if these ballots in some of these places came in late, then there might very well be a significant advantage for trump in these ballots. maria: yeah. so in other words, what you're saying is you can't call this too early because there are ballots coming in all day on election day. robert, what was the biggest surprise that you saw this election? >> well, i think the biggest surprise was florida, even though everybody else -- you saw how bad the poll ofs were in florida. we were the only ones who predicted he would win by more than 1%. he exceeded even our assessment that he would do 2% better.
7:27 am
he made it all the way to 3%. it was very impressive. maria: you know, it's interesting that he wins ohio but then we're questioning michigan and wisconsin. somebody questioned that as well on some of the notes that i was reading. i mean, what surprises you in terms of what we saw on his victories and neighboring states were completely different? >> i think that's the overall picture. if you had -- if anyone had said a week out that this thing would be within 3% nationally. you remember the crazy national polls showing 8, 10 of%, and the senate would be retained and the republicans pick up seats in the house, no one would have said well, that comes along with a trump defeat. yet, there is definitely something fishy. maria: yes. exactly. right. given what's taken place in the house, you would expect that you would see that in the president's level as well.
7:28 am
that's another thing being brought up. robert, i know that you're looking at polls. you've been the most accurate in all of these cycles. congratulations on that. but what about what we're going to see in terms of getting to the bottom of this potential fraud that we're talking about. the trump administration is now dropping lawsuits. do you think we'll be able to get to the bottom of it? >> you know, i'm good at measuring the public's opinion and measuring the electorate. i'm terrible at measuring the judicial system. i don't think i can make an educated guess there. maria: in terms of what we will see out of the states that are still being counted, do you believe that president trump will be victorious? walk us through some of these battleground states as we await results. >> well, what we're seeing is people -- i mean, the reports of who is bringing ballots in and the lack of transparency and people not being able to even --
7:29 am
i mean, the whole point of being an election witness and having one from each party is they can see what's going on so this is very troubling and it is hard to determine anything when you can't get the information. i mean, if you look back to bush v gore and everything in florida, these people were on the front lines. the reason you saw pictures of hanging chads and pregnant chads is because we could see the ballots. they were on film. and the fact that that level of trantransparency does not exists time should be cause for alarm for everyone. maria: yes. it should. robert, it's good to have you this morning. thanks very much. we'll keep watching and of course talk with you soon throughout the process. coming up, getting the count correct, former florida secretary of state katherine harris will join us to talk about what robert was saying, she was a key player in the 2000 florida recount. we'll get her take on the current battle amid claims of fraud. that's coming up next. you're watching "mornings with

maria: welcome back. good thursday morning, everybody. thanks so much for joining us, i'm maria bartiromo. it is thursday, november 5th. a look at markets this morning of, 7:32 a.m. on the east coast. we've got a rally underway. take a look. futures in the green again, up almost 400 points on the dow industrials. one and-a-half percent. the nasdaq is up 305. two and-a-half percent. and the s&p is higher by 63, almost 2% there as well. the 2020 election looking good for wall street as investors expect a divided government. all three major indices finishing up for the third time this week with the dow industrials up 367 yesterday. the nasdaq up 430 and the s&p higher by 74 yesterday on wall street. investors finding technology and healthcare stocks the way to go. those groups have been the leadership groups for these couple of days and certainly the last several weeks. european markets look like this. the bank of england held rates steady this morning at one-tenth of a percent, coming on the first day of a new month.
7:34 am
also, lockdowns happening throughout europe, the u.k., france and germany on lockdowns. the cac is up 48, the dax index up 188. in asia overnight, green across the board there as well. take a look. the asian markets finishing up across the board with honk of hg up three and a quarter percent. holding battlegrounds accountable, the trump administration and the campaign is suing michigan, pennsylvania and georgia in an effort to ensure fair treatment amid mounting controversy over voting practices. in michigan, the campaign is suing over alleged lack of access for republican challengers to monitor ballot counts. the campaign is doing the same in pennsylvania. challenging the state over its extension of proof of id corrections by three days. in georgia, the campaign is suing to require officials to separate mail-in ballots that arrived after 7:00 p.m. on election day. joining me right now is former florida secretary of state during the 2000 election,
7:35 am
katherine harris. thanks very much for joining us. >> thank you, maria, for having me. good morning. maria: first, give us your assessment of what's taking place here. of course, i want to get your thoughts on what you saw during the 2000 election and how things are different this time around. but what's your take on what's going on right here? >> i find it rather extraordinary that perhaps republican workers are being excluded, that there's not the transparency that the kind of verifications are not being ensured and that you have governors, secretaries of state, attorneys general stating that they're sure biden will win. as an elected official you must be more pure than ke caesar's w. you might have your preferences but you must follow the law. maria: exactly, katherine. i mean, you know, this is just chipping away at the trust in this process in america. i mean, these are the kinds of things that happen in banana republics. can you compare --
7:36 am
>> exactly, maria. maria: can you compare what you saw in the year 2000 and why you had transparency there but you don't feel like you have transparency here? >> we didn't have a constitutional crisis in florida. we had a close race and our laws were sufficient. i tried to pass laws earlier when i was in the senate but no one had the political will. we did so after 2000 election and now for 18 years we've had amazing elections with securities and people felt had integrity. we've gone from the whipping boy to the top of the class. as the model now, there's so many opportunities for these other states to have followed them and they've chosen not to. maria: unbelievable. do you think that these lawsuits will be able to get to the bottom of it? will the trump campaign be successful in identifying fraud if there is? >> well, certainly they must be successful and the law -- the rule of law is so important in the united states and the judges
7:37 am
should be impartial. the law should be follow of load. one of my biggest concerns, as you saw in norman coleman's u.s. senate race that, tabulated the ballots in one fashion and when it came to absentee or disputed ballots they went to another standard such as al franken could win by 327 votes. the consistency of the laws -- laws in each state are complex and they're going to attract lawyers. the most important aspect is that the uniform standards continue across the board and that trump holds them to account legally. that's a grave concern. maria: so tell me how you believe this plays out. >> well, for 36 days the american public was patient with us and the rule of law prevailed. so i'm hoping that these elected officials in each state will allow transparency, will follow the law, and follow the important standard and not change the laws midstream. and i think that's extremely
7:38 am
important and that the security of these ballots is guaranteed, that more ballots aren't just appearing. i don't understand how 138,000 ballots solely voting for biden could appear. that's statistically impossible. i know that trump has a great team and i know that they're going to fight to ensure the integrity of the law, no matter what side of the aisle you're on. you want to ensure that the president of the united states, the most important role in the world, is successful in terms of the legalities. maria: exactly. now, what you just referred to, the 138,000 votes, so in wisconsin the board of elections said in the middle of the night, look, we're going to stop down and resume tomorrow. the president made comments, everybody went to sleep and then in the middle of the night, 2:00 ballots showed up. every one of them for joe biden.
7:39 am
zero for president trump. i mean, you just said it's statistically impossible. how is this allowed to stand? where did these 138,000 ballots come from? and they're all joe biden. >> it doesn't make any sense, maria. and so more than half the country is standing by questioning what is going to happen and hoping that our laws will suffice. if it has to go to the supreme court, then so be it. maria: you know, this is the reason that we need to see accountability and this is the reason we need to hear from bill barr and john durham after what took place in 2016. because if we don't have accountability to make sure that the cheaters, the fraudsters, those people who decided they wanted to wiretap unlawfully wiretap innocent citizens like they did with carter page and others, that they are brought to justice so that people could
7:40 am
actually trust in the system. where is bill barr? where is john durham? because the more days that go on that we don't have accountability, the more what you're saying will take place and deepen. people do not trust the system and that's exactly what the case is in places like russia, brazil, qatar, the list goes on. this is america and this is really -- this is disheartening, catherine. is there anything that can be done other than what the trump campaign is doing? what else should be done, katherine? >> i think the people in each state need to do their best to continue to hold those elected officials accountable. certainly if there's pressure exercised in each state, maybe they'll pay more attention and we have to follow the legal process. it has to play out. and god willing, the truth will out. maria: all right. we will certainly keep watching and covering it, shining a spotlight on it. hope you come back soon. thank you so much. >> thank you so much. maria: yes, of course.
7:41 am

7:42 am
7:43 am
7:44 am
maria: welcome back. social media censorship in election season, twitter and facebook are under fire for their policy of adding labels to posts that they say include false or misleading information about the election. last night i got a letter from
7:45 am
twitter because i reposted an article from the federalist. the tweet's wording was simply shareing the headline of an article and i got a note from twitter, saying to me that we received a complaint regarding your account. we investigated the reported content and could not identify any violations of the twitter rules or german law. accordingly, we have not taken any action at this time. said twitter to me in a letter. but it was flagged because i retweeted an article from the federalist. joining me right now is the ceo of parler, john mace. john, thanks very much for joining us. of course, the success of parler is partly because people understand that they're getting censored. have twitter and facebook gone too far, john? >> well, once you start content curation and you start fact checking you're introducing bias and i don't think there's any perfect group without bias. so in terms of being a platform
7:46 am
for transparency and free speech, they've gone way too far and in this election, we need more transparency and it's really important. so i think that they have gone too far in that respect, definitely. maria: so i mean, i'm not the only one that was flagged or sent a letter. president trump is flagged all the time, multiple times yesterday alone when he was talking about the allegations of voter fraud. does this make twitter a publisher and not a platform, in your view? >> well, certainly. if you're editorializing content, you're no longer 230 exempted which means you're acting as a publisher. judge clarence thomas has indicated under the current definition of the section 230 law, this would be defining them as a publication and could remove their protections. so certainly. and this is particularly concerning because president trump and former vice president biden, their campaigns know more
7:47 am
about the election than twitter and facebook's fact checkers, they've been working on this stuff for at least a year now. they're better informed. it is really biased. it is editorialization, definitely. maria: i'm on parler right now. i love being on parler. and there's an article from the federalist on parler. and it says gop's 2020 wins make a projected trump loss look very fishy indeed. a lot of people are questioning it. no one flagged anything on parler. you're looking at parler and you've got an opportunity to see ideas from all sides of the aisle. and that's what parler does. so do you see parler as a bulletin board and not a content creator? >> yeah, i call our bulletin board a town square for information and right now a town square where people can talk and get things out and be transparent, without fact
7:48 am
checkers, without editorial bullies trying to tell you what to think. this is very, very important and parler is really the only place in terms of social media that's allowing that this year round. it's very important that we keep this up. maria: everybody should check out parler.com. john, great to see you this morning. thank you, sir. >> thank you. maria: we'll see you soon. stay with us. we'll be right back. are you frustrated with your weight and health?

7:52 am
wants transparency to this process. joining me right now is government accountability institute research director, he is author of the book, fraud, how the left plans to steal the next election. eric eggers. it's good to have you this morning. thanks so much for joining us. you wrote this book, expecting what? and what is your assessment of what's taking place today. >> >> i wrote the book exploring the idea that fraud is actually quite common. you hear this pushback, that voter fraud isn't that widespread. i'm joining you from tallahassee, florida where 20 years ago we saw a presidential election decided by 537 votes in this state. what we're seeing right now unfortunately is a little bit of a repeat of past performances. we'll see lots of states decided by very few votes and unfortunately because of the pan he demick we've seen a massive increase in mail-in ballots which even the new york times has admitted which is the most susceptible form of voting to
7:53 am
ballot fraud. states like pennsylvania and michigan, these are states with documented history of problems with election integrity. we're currently waiting on the most successful form of fraud in states with a documented history of it. i wrote the book to explore it and get to the bottom of that reality. maria: tell me what you think has gone on here. the campaign has dropped lawsuits, saying they want transparency. do you think they'll be effective in getting to the bottom of this. >> i'm not a lawyer. what i can tell you is the reason why i think voter fraud remains a controversial topic, it's very difficult to detect once somebody is registered to vote. some call it voter registration fraud. once you become registered to vote even if you're not a legal voter, you can cast a ballot with virtually no repercussions. the supreme court cited statistics in a ruling saying that 24 mill i don't know voter registration -- million voter registrations in this country are wrong.
7:54 am
that's why a lot of people pushed back against the idea of universal ballots, sending people ballot request forms whether asked for or not. that's when errors become relevant. that creates an environment that leads to phon potentially fraudt action. that's what a the lawsuits will attempt to uncover. maria: very dangerous, very troubling. let me bring in dagen mcdowell. go ahead. dagen: people who are upset about what's going on now and i think katherine harris referenced this particular case. kimberly strai strassell mentiot in her column. the case of al franken managing to swindle norm coleman out of a minnesota seat and strassel writes every conservative lawyer has a searing memory of this. this is an election that handed a filibuster-proof majority to the democrat controlled senate
7:55 am
at the time and john fund, which was about a year after the election, wrote about this, that potentially illegal felon voters might have handed that victory to al franken. so there's a -- if people are suspicious, maria's been talking about what happened four years ago, and then the spying on the trump campaign, but there's a history of shenanigans, so if conservative voters are suspicious of what's going on, there's just a just justificatid history for that. maria: you're right, dagen. >> people ask what the cost of voter fraud is. i say look at your insurance premiums. obama care passed because of the vote that you mentioned. pennsylvania's secretary of state quietly resigned after 2016, subsequent documentation was revealed he was actually fired because he presided over what he called a glitch that
7:56 am
allowed illegal immigrants to cast ballots. when you do investigating and take a look at the case by case reporting, it comes out of a state with very real consequences. maria: dagen, do you think that the lawsuits will be successful? dagen: it remains to be seen. and just to be clear and we've done this all -- yesterday and a today. these lawsuits are just to ensure that the votes are counted properly. as i said about michigan, the lawsuit is to make sure that people, the election officials follow the law and allow observers to be present and inspectors from both parties. so these are lawsuits to basically enforce the law and allow for fairness. maria: right. but eric, they've pushed back on that. final word, eric.
7:57 am
we've got to jump. go ahead. >> i would just say one of the things that we've seen recently unfortunately with rioting and looting is people have shown if properly motivated they're willing to disregard most laws if they think their cause is justified. i don't think it's a stretch to think people with will violate election law, it's more difficult to enforce and easier to get away with. people interested in election integrity should be in favor of as many eyes on the election as possible.
7:58 am

8:04 am
president trump's attorney rudy giuliani explains. >> not a single republican has been able to look at any one of these mail ballots, they could be from mars as far as we are concerned or they could be from the democratic national committee. >> biden campaign saying they are ready for court battle, watch. >> we are fully prepared for it because, almost since they handed their strategic playbook to us read it to us out loud we are prepared for it wherever they go however they go about it we have lawyers, ready to go, papers ready to go within an hour of hearing of any steps that they take. maria: president trump won on three states in the 2016 election, they need to regain those states for reelection. election protesters taking a turn overnight from from mainly peaceful to chaotic new york city nearly 60 people

8:06 am
but yeah there will be recount the question, of course, is whether it will do any good. scott walker former republican governor of wisconsin, pointed out history of recounts, wisconsin is not particularly favorable take a look at tweet that he put out yesterday, eshsaid yeah, the president should try it but -- after recount in 2011 race for wisconsin sprement was swing just 300 votes after that recount that you referenced the 2016 presidential race in wisconsin only won that took place trump went up only 131 votes as i said says walker 20,000 which is difference between trump and biden in wisconsin is a high hurdle. rudy giuliani, you mentioned the press conference yesterday in philadelphia he mentioned possibly irregularities in vote in wisconsin potential court action here as well, the federal courts this morning he didn't say you what exactly, officials here election officials were quick to say
8:07 am
this vote went smoothly no irregularities if any evidence bring it forward, he also mentioned the central count, we reported on that yesterday, that count of mail-in ballots milwaukee, he said, you know -- biden got 128,000 votes out of that, and suggesteding that was something weird about that there with 169,000 mail-in ballots yes indeed biden got 128,000 reported overnight last night, night before last. but that trump also about 40,000 votes, in a democratic stronghold like milwaukee, that is not particularly unusual. so, high bar i think, but, you know, going to give it a try maria. maria: all right. we will be watching, jeff just an extraordinary, extraordinary situation, jeff flock, joining us this morning, joining me right now from his reaction oklahoma he senator somebody senate homeland governmental you affairs committee james lankford thanks for being here reaction to what is taking
8:08 am
place right now in all questions about the fairness, and honesty of this election. >> it is painful to watch only because there are so many of us in states like mine that five hours after polls closed we had all our votes counted with four million people in oklahoma, we had historic long lines, for day of election we had lots of mail-in voting, we had early votinging in in person we had all historic numbers yet five hours after election over we recounted all results were in everyone was resolved on it, it is difficult for us to be able to watch states like pence, nevada, georgia, see precincts showing up of saying they had more out veries not counted yet don't have time to be a able to -- them plenty of opportunity for mischief we need to have every state have not only good system voting on day of absentee voting make sure everyone gets a chancing to vote, but to work on developing a system that
8:09 am
american people can trust the way that it is counted the efficiency of the count that is difficulty for people that are in states that do it right. watching states that we think we don't know how they are doing it, and leaves a lot of opportunity >> what can you do in the senate about this? >> one of the things we worked on a lot past four years election security make sure we are watching for any foreign actor trying to reach in trying to affect our systems we have done additional layers of protect for the states, every election is run by the state, the legislators the governor of that state. need to determine what better way to do this as we have seen before other elections states wake up say we've a on this why are half countries done we are still sitting here, saying we are trying to figure this out. at some point, they have got to actually get on the ball be able to get it fixed we can try to to encourage it incentivize it shine light but state to state they have to actually determine how they
8:10 am
are going to fix it. >> let me ask you what could get done, now, markets are rallying, thinking the republicans will keep control of senate. do you agree with that at this point? and do you believe that there will be eaareas to work on lefts stimulus package infrastructure package what are you expecting in terms of what gets done or looking to 2021 to gl receipt substance done because now we are going to be tied up in legal battles over, the -- the over the honesty of this election process? >> i think we will retain senate, do i think we can get things done during next two months. get things done there is a lot needs to be done around covid-19 additional relieve we put packages together two months ago in the senate ready to go on that when we saw a common ground issue issue, dealing with vaccines testing, unemployment assistance, additional assistance for individuals in small business,
8:11 am
nonprofits,it was pretty comprehensive package, that package on chuck schumer saying we want to do nancy pelosi's packager nothing, nancy pelosi putting together a package obviously, that wasn't serious it was so out of control. so we are now of at a point after the election that our hope is they are going to actually come to the table, and what house has seen they lost seats, the democrats in the senate spent almost a billion dollars way over spent, republicans but yet did not did not retake senate important we press on be that firewall at this point to say we are not going to move on things that will hurt american people long term we do want to move on things that are actually tw helping right now. for example, is there any way, you expect three trillion dollars in tax increases the pass senate >> no, there is no way that is going to pass nor should it mass on that we need to to things to help our economy
8:12 am
does not the help our economy to pass four trillion dollars in tax increases >> good to have you this morning thanks so much for joining me senator james lankford, we will break all eyes on presidential race former white house chief strategist steve bannon here to talk about president's next step as his campaign gears up for legal battle do david boies his take as all sides battle for last votes. >> lots, to speak back to panel you are watching "mornings with maria" live on fox business. i knew about the tremors. but when i started seeing things, i didn't know what was happening... so i kept it in. he started believing things that weren't true. i knew something was wrong...
8:13 am
but i didn't say a word. during the course of their disease around 50% of people with parkinson's may experience hallucinations or delusions. but now, doctors are prescribing nuplazid. the only fda approved medicine... proven to significantly reduce hallucinations and delusions related to parkinson's. don't take nuplazid if you are allergic to its ingredients. nuplazid can increase the risk of death in elderly people with dementia-related psychosis and is not for treating symptoms unrelated to parkinson's disease. nuplazid can cause changes in heart rhythm and should not be taken if you have certain abnormal heart rhythms or take other drugs that are known to cause changes in heart rhythm. tell your doctor about any changes in medicines you're taking. the most common side effects are swelling of the arms and legs and confusion. we spoke up and it made all the difference. ask your parkinson's specialist about nuplazid. hey, our worker's comp insurance is expiring. should i just renew it? yeah, sure. hey there, small business owner. pie insurance here with some sweet advice to stop you from overpaying on worker's comp. try

8:17 am
>> and you say you want to rotate into growth at reasonable price, where is growth at a reasonable price in your view? >> there is there is plenty of stocks that are have good fundamentals that are not quite as expensive as some of the high-flying growth names, which started selling off in early september. so we think those stocks may have less upside those names that are really expensive that still have fundamentals a futh growth dream we focus on companies decent growth deep valuation, i think on the flip side the valuings investors were hoping for if we had gotten a democratic sweep the air is succeed out of that afraid over the last two days and so, we think investors will continue to focus and try to find value but it is going to be really difficult so you are going to have to pay up a little bit to find good
8:18 am
quality fundamentals that is that mix is what we're looking for. >> so you look at industrials,consumer -- that is the areas that you want to stay in a industrial names and consumer names? i know the consumer has held up really well even in -- of a lockdown. >> we have called it a rateless recovery where we have seen better economic data not seen increase in interest rates, or even in inflation pressures that is really good news for the u.s. economy good news for u.s. consumer so we think leadership has been driven by technology, consumer discretionary pocket industrial stocks, will continue because the back odrop is unlikely to change we've got three reasons why we think this is kind of goldilocks for o growthier higher quality sectors one, we're seeing another round of easing around the world obviously, u.s. the fed is not going to do much seeing long-term bond yields come back down should help you
8:19 am
housing sector morning rates as well as autos consumer installment loans, covid, kind of keep a lid on reopening the economic activity going to keep growthier names in greater demand not going to see major changes in d.c. that is goldilocks for growth in my opinion, i see, of course, we are going to hear from federal reserve today after two-day meeting, we've got jobs' report out tomorrow, you are looking at any surprises here? we are looking for 600,000 jobs added to economy last month unemployment rate is expected to takedown six month in a roe 7.-- any thoughts in terms of what have we might see in backdrop fed today jobs number tomorrow quick >> all read leading kairlts point to coldest gradual could improvement in economy, lagging indicator should continue to look good i wouldn't be surprised if we saw positive surprise in that

8:38 am
things like that. things like what we saw in the house, and the senate, where voters obviously, rejected the progressives you are not seeing that in presidential level how do you see all this david? >> a well, first of all, i think vote count going relatively smoothly. anybody can go into court when you go into court have to actual prove something you can go on television, and all sort of wild accusations, you can even wild accusations in complaint. you got to prove something when you go to court, and thus far, none of the lawsuits that are there approve anything. they were a lot of ballots wisconsin, for vice president biden, ballots in wisconsin, president trump can't just campaigner about the ones that
8:39 am
came in for your opponent >> how do you know that there is no evidence? of this? i know that you are supporting joe biden i get that david, but how do you know there is no evidence? >> i -- i think a fair point we don't now know whether -- but we know >> how do you say that if you don't know? >> because -- kwhaim what i'm saying they haven't shown evidence maybe evidence they are hiding maybe evidence they will develop nobody can know for sure right now, whether any evidence but what we do know is that there hasn't been any evidence shown there is no evidence they are able to come forward with in court not even able to come forward on television. but what happens is that they makings accusations, and i am not saying they don't have a right to go to court, you know, any american citizen has the right to a court.
8:40 am
what i am swaying to win this court accomplish he in court, you've got to have evidence, and, i am not going to predict who otherwise going to win the president -- until all votes are counted i will predict this is consolidated ballot box not in court. . >> there is a there are stories all over the place, about wrongdoing, there is published in "new york times" where a writer at leftist news site from greenwald recently resigned over pro biden bias there, he is tweeted in favor of this person destroying trump ballots a number of times, that people were told to destroy trump ballots, so do you think that we will be able to get to the bottom of people saying and telling others, to destroy trump ballots? >>, of course, we will get to
8:41 am
the bottom of this, you can being bring causations in court one things for disgruntled person to tweet something another to come into court without evidence -- and i think actual you unfortunate so much charges being thrown around. i think -- this is serious businesspeople ought not undermine the tremendous perform, that election officials, republican and democrat around the country are doing. maria: i agree with that that is that is what we are having this conversation. >> we have people >> -- night after night, because that is what -- in democracy, i think to. maria: and that -- >> why we are having this conversation. because -- we do not want to undermine we cannot undermine the american election, we cannot undermine our liberties, david let me ask
8:42 am
you do you find anything questionable about 2:00 in the morning 138,000 plats dropped in wisconsin every won 138,000 voting for biden not one -- 138,000 >> that is what i am saying, if the only votes, were votes for biden would be suspicious but this wisconsin counting a lot of votes for trump too you can't just complain about the votes that -- >> specific of 138,000 ballots specific dump took place overnight 2:00 in the morning 138,000 ballots all provided not one for trump doesn't that make you say what is that about? how is that is that even statistically possible? >> well, it certainly -- certainly is it statistically possible votes come in various times until you understand until evidence people of florida, charges statements
8:43 am
without any evidence, the problem here, okay, is not you don't have a right to go to court, when you go to court you've got to go to court, are responsibly with some evidence there is no evidence that there is anything wrong in wisconsin there is no evidence of that -- >> but you don't know that david you don't know that? >> i am not -- >> you don't know that you don't know that there is no evidenced; right? just to be clear you don't know that >> you don't know, but what you do know is they haven't shown any evidence. in other words, are. maria: could -- i am sure they are -- >> until the court -- >> lot of charges have nothing to do with what happened last night remember wisconsin is already called, for biden before last night >> was called arizona was called as well but they were still counting in arizona.
8:44 am
so -- >> i am not saying -- they continue to count should count. until ballots are counting. maria: so they he the race should not have been called >> well, um -- networks all networks called races before all ballots are called if you don't do that you wouldn't have called any states because they are still counting some ballots. networks, that, too call a race when you think pretty concluded. what i am saying about wisconsin, is that -- whatever happened last night everybody all recognized biden won wisconsin. that doesn't mean that votes shouldn't be counted down the even mean can't bring a lawsuit i am just saying that before people start throwing charges around, all the before all evidence brought forward i

before money, people tools, cattle, grain, even shells represented value. then currency came along. they made it out of copper, gold, silver, wampum. soon people decided to put all that value into a piece of paper, then proceeded to wave goodbye to value, printing unlimited amounts of money as they passed the buck to the future. that's why it's time for digital currency and your investment in the grayscale funds. go digital. go grayscale.

t story? i wanted to help protect myself. my doctor recommended eliquis. eliquis is proven to treat and help prevent another dvt or pe blood clot. almost 98 percent of patients on eliquis didn't experience another. ...and eliquis has significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis is fda-approved and has both. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. what's around the corner could be your moment. ask your doctor about eliquis.
