reporting in. And now, I want to bring in abc political news analyst matthew dowd. Four days out. What are you seeing? We're at the end of the 700 days that this has been going on and we're in the final dames of it and it's going to be the most expensive, the most divisive and probably the most election we've seen in our modern times of this political campaign. It's an amazing situation. But many people aren't waiting. No, they're out voting early. What do we know about that? Can we read tea leaves? You can take a look at it, when you see the lines up in georgia and lines that have gone on, as we see, lined around the block, people not waiting for the finish line, they're wanting to do it earlier. 25 million people have already cast votes early. By time election day comes, more than a third, maybe even 40% of the people are going to have voted early. We're going to set a record for number of people voted and people that vote before election day. So, election day is a moving target. Yeah. In america. Exactly. That's one of the things campaigns have to plan, it's no longer one day, it's multiple days. I know that you'll be joining george stephanopoulos and his political roundtable, his powerhouse team, this sunday on a special election edition of "this week." And mark the date, tuesday night, george and I and the abc news political team will be in our election headquarters, joining you as americans go to the polls to election a president.
