THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.
LOU WATERS, CNN ANCHOR: And California is getting in its two cents' worth. Here's CNN's Jennifer Auther in Los Angeles.
JENNIFER AUTHER, CNN CORRESPONDENT: Lou, we're at the Farmer's Market here in Los Angeles. It's a favorite haunt who live here as well as a real tourist's attraction and here we find Denston Henry (ph). He's from Philadelphia, been living there for 11 years. We just hear that out of the courts in Florida that in fact it may take two to four days but those manual recounts will go on. Your views?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I think we should give the people enough time to count. Let them count over. I mean, I don't what the problem. Let them count so we get the people's president.
AUTHER: All right, we're going to move along pretty quickly here. We're going to talk now to a Jerry Bender (ph). Jerry, if we could just ask you quickly, do you think there would be a mandate for either candidate.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: What do you mean by mandate?
AUTHER: In the end, when this comes to a conclusion and we find out who our president is, do you think that either men will have a mandate?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I think what will happen really in the long run, the loser is really going to be the winner. Probably the winner will be the president, but the loser will be the winner. That's what I think. And probably in four years from now, the loser now will be the winner of the president in four years from now. That's what I think.
AUTHER: Thank you very much. We're going to move right along now to Marshall Stewart (ph). I wanted to ask you specifically, if you think that Florida is holding up this election just a little bit too long for you out in California? We're pretty sure of what we wanted to do so far as the popular vote for president?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Well, I think that the whole country is being held up by this decision. But I think that every vote should be counted or else we won't know who won, really.
AUTHER: All right. Thank you very much, and we're going to toss it back to you. I am Jennifer Auther reporting live, CNN, from the Farmer's Market in Los Angeles.
NATALIE ALLEN, CNN ANCHOR: Thank you, Jennifer.
