the he was expected you out including oklahoma can the antennas the earlier the president talked about his chances of winning as he visite campaign had orders in virginia and have a great night but it's politics and its elections and you never know winning is easy losing is never easy for me it' not present in front looks for a big turnout from his supporters at the polls today i like the course

joe biden has won a number of states including new york, massachusetts and his homestate of delaware.

-nats/sot- we're going to rebuild the middle class the democratic presidential nominee capped his election day in delaware.

I'm superstitious about predicting what an outcome is going to be/but i'm hopeful a cbs news exit poll finds a =majority= of voters think the u.s. efforts to control the coronavirus are going badly, which may help biden: for me in my mind there is no justification for the negligence that has gone on for the last four years biden is hoping to capture a large share of first time voters.

I voted for joe biden because i felt like his policies best aligned with my views.

A cbs news exit poll also finds independent voters broke for biden in a big way 17 points higher than for president trump...i'm michael george at biden headquarters, now back to you.

Teenagers are buying less clothing and more video games.

The pandemic is changing the way the gen z age group spends money - and causing teens to tighten the purse strings like never before.

Elise preston has more, in our consumer news.

Alexis burkhalter is a high school junior in columbus, ohio.

Her passion is competitive tennis.

Nats playing..

And until the pandemic, she enjoyed trips to the mall.

I think it was really just a good way to hang out with your friends, get stuff you need teenage shoppers are an important slice of the nation's economy.

Piper sandler senior research analyst erinn murphy tracks their spending.

:40 this year in particular spending was at the lowest we've seen in the two decades we've conducted this survey the survey says teens spent about 21-hundred dollars this year, a 9-percent drop from last year.

- a trend that's at least partly a result of the pandemic.

2:40 there's clearly things in the wallet that you can't spend on that maybe you used to.

Whether it's going out to eat with your friends or whether it's concerts spending on cosmetics dropped 20-percent.

And apparel was down 11- percent.

To about 507- dollars per teen.

With nike as the number one brand one area that bucked the trend - video games.

Videogames moved from 8 percent of the total wallet to 10 percent of the wallet another change is in the =way= teenagers shop.

The pandemic drove them out of stores and on-line.

90-percent now say they spend money on e- commerce alexis says she never shopped online before this year.

Now she spends about 120-dollars a month over the internet, money she earns doing chores.

11:33 burkhalter: i want to be sad for myself that i can't see my friends as much and hang out with my friends, but i just know people are in a worse situation than i am.

In fact, nearly half of all teens believe the economy is getting worse - which could mean more belt-tightening in the future.

Ep, cbs news, new york good evening, as we wait for the elections to come down, i'm here with zach wamp.

Tell us a little bit abut the national council of election integrity.

Good evening zach, how are you doing today?

I'm great, thanks for having a little bit about the national council and what you have been preparing for today.

So for the last 6 weeks, 44 americans, 40 of us have served in some form of federal capacity, plus some four four star generals, have been meeting in a very bi- partisan way for this moment because there are three things that we want to say today.

One is thank the voters for going through whatever they had to go through to vote.

This is incredible interest at a time when we had thought people didn't care anymore about who leads and their country.

They actually do.


The next thing, we don't want the candidates playing refree and declaring victory or defeat too early because we might not know whether or not they have won or lost.

So far, that's going well.

Third, starting now, everybody needs to stay calm and patient.

Some of these states are early callers.

They'll come in tonight, we'll know.

Some of them are late counters.

They couldn't start counting absentee ballots until today.

We know wisconsin, michigan, pennsylvania are states that you might not get a full count until friday or even later.

We have to remain patient.

The closer that it is, the closer it stays, the more important it is to remain calm.

In 50 states, we have very credible election officials and professionals running these elections.

We've had a great history of this.

There is no reason to second guess this or to doubt them now.

We can have confidence in our elections in this country and frankly, this has gone better to this point than we thought it might.

So, we really are still hopeful that it will be peaceful.

We will not have violence.

We've been concerned in preperation about the major cities.

They've boarded up.

They are concerned about protests turning into demonstrations.

Potentially turning violent.

You've got militia in some of the rural parts of the countries that have actually been rattling the sabers and making noise.

But, we need to go throughout his and show the world that we can peacefully transfer power or that or hold power.

That we can hold elections during a pandemic.

That our country can be the beacon of light to the world on freedom, fair and honest election.

Talk a little bit about that.

Iin hamilton county, we haven't seen any businesses boarded up, we haven't had any credible threats or anything like that.

What does that say about iur voters here.

Well, you get outside of the major cities and here locally, there's not a lot of anxiety.

There's not a lot of hate to be honest with you.

We get along better than most places in this country.

We are a pretty diverse place in terms of our ethnicity and in terms of our voters.

It probably leans right, but the city of chattanooga is a democratic city and the county is probably a republican county.

We get along well and frankly, discourage this kind of thing.

It doesn't mean that it couldn't happen.

So, we always have to be vigilant.

But, i'm real proud of our city forf the fact that we can actually do this and people voted in massive number is hamilton county today and so far, it's gone well.

Last question, we have seen all of the numbers coming down, talk a little bit about what you have to say to voters as we wait these last few hours.

Well again, everybody wants to know who won.

But, you don't have to.

There's been many, many times when counts come later.

Now, florida in 2000, i remember vividly, that took over a month and there could be a potential supreme court challenge.

There's going to be litigation, but hopefully we will know a good answer as to whose won.

I appreciate president trump's comments today that he was not going to jump the gun.

I hope that he doesn't jump the gun and declare victory until we absolutely know difintevley who won.

But, everybody in this country needs to stay calm.

We're going to get there and we need to have a peaceful transfer of power because at the end of the day, we could be republicans, democrats, conservatives, liberals, different colors, different sizes.

But, we are all americans and if you agree to that principle that's what's more important.

Our message as the national council of election integrity, is if there ever was a day to put your country over your party, it's today.

That is so right.

That is all that we have for you right now.

Stay with us, we'll have more after the break.
