citrus. he's got goal and our goal is to please him. >> thank you for being with us. >> "inside politics" with john king starts right now. it's debate time. >> some people think she's slippery. >> i can take that kind of stuff. i've been at this and, you know, i understand it's a contact sport. >> face to face for the first time after a week focused on police shootings and racial tensions. >> it's unbearable and it needs to become intolerable. >> places like afghanistan are safer than some of our inner cities. >> terror is another certain debate flash point. >> we need steady leadership in a dangerous world. >> hillary clinton has once again demonstrated that she's
really unfit for office. >> 44 days out. the race is tight. the stakes enormous. "inside politics," the biggest stories sourced by the best reporters now. welcome to "inside politics". i'm john king. thanks for sharing your sunday morning. halle berry and donald trump debate face to face tomorrow night after a week of sharp exchanges over police shootings and race, how best to respond to bombings and terrorism. three quick questions. one does donald trump have a point or does he need a refresher course on slavery and jim crow. >> our african-american communities are absolutely in the worst shape that they've ever been in before ever, ever, ever. you take a look at the inner cities u-get no education. you get no jobs. you get shot walking down the street. >> question two, do fresh terror
attacks have voters looking for tough or tested? >> i'm not using the term muslim i'm saying you're going to have to profile. >> i'm the only candidate in this race who has been part of the hard decisions to take terrorists off the battlefield. >> and question three, this is a big one can hillary clinton use the debate stage to sway voters who view her as untrustworthy. >> even if you're totally opposed to donald trump you may still have some questions about me. i get that. and i want to do my best to answer those questions. >> with us this morning to share their reporting and insights our panel. now tomorrow it's debate night in america and this morning fresh reminder of the enormous stakes. a new "the washington post"/abc poll finds the race is essentially a dead heat. 46% of voters back hillary clinton, 44% back donald trump.
a two-point national race will add more adrenaline as the candidates dive into debate prep. campaigning in virginia trump celebrated his gains. >> we have 44 days until the big vote. the arrogance of washington, d.c. will soon come face to face with the righteous verdict of the american worker and voter. >> one quick bit of context we do try that every now and then. president obama had a small national leeld the day before his debate with mitt romney. today the clinton edge a little over two points. one issue are the events in charlotte this past week and how they fit into a national conversation on law and order and police shootings of african-americans. >> last night as i was read through my letters, i'd say about half of them, said mr. president, why are you always
against police? and why aren't you doing enough to deal with these rioters and the violence. the other half were some black folks saying mr. president, why aren't you doing something with the police, why aren't we going to get justice. and i understand the nature of that argument because this is a dialogue we've been having for 400 years. >> that's the president commenting this week and it's a dialogue that divides the two leading candidates to succeed president obama. the election now 43 days away. first presidential debate tomorrow night. we know donald trump cast himself as a law and order candidate and has said recently hillary clinton shares responsibility for protests and unrest. >> those pedaling the narrative
of cops as a racist force in our society, this is a narrative that's supported with a nod by my opponent. you see what she's saying and it's not good. >> now, part of what she says she believes institutional racism is at play and she also was among those pressuring the charlotte police as they did last night to release all the videos of that shooting to public. hillary clinton pushes back on the charge she's anti-police. >> i've spoken to many police chiefs and other law enforcement leaders who are as deeply concerned as i am and deeply committed as i am to reform. why? because they know it is essential for the safety of our communities in a our officers. >> this has been a constant, unfortunately, because we've had many. baltimore, baton rouge. donald trump has been sort of different at times, this week we
saw him trying to show some empathy at the shooting in tulsa. i'm fascinated on the idea on this issue which has the country in a very raw police. finally side-by-side, face to face. what are we looking for on crime and punishment, law and order, race. >> this will play out in the debate and will play out the way we've seen it. in some ways this is more in hillary clinton's wheelhouse. she's talked about this at length. she's talked about the need for changes in terms of the community policing. she's talked about the need for national standards in terms of the lethal use of force. i think donald trump mixed reviews. i talked to some republicans privately. they feel he deserves credit for acknowledging that tulsa video was so troubling but then, again, he also talked about the need for stop-and-frisk specifically in chicago. he talked about needing an anti-crime initiative nationwide and also said of charlotte drugs
explained what was going on in charlotte rather than real anger and outrage with what in the video. >> plays to his base, law and order, tough talk. does it help him? it is what he says or how he says when it you're in this debate. we're six weeks out. >> look, trump feels that this is like the 1968 election when a lot of people believed the urban unrest played into richard nixon's hands and helped to arouse the silent majority of middle class white voters who were afraid and what we're looking at is a landscape where it's so divided it may be impossible for either of these candidates to persuade one block of voters without losing the other by leaning into this scary inner cities argument. trump loses whatever minority support might have been on the table for him and hopes he gets those fearful white people. and hillary clinton when she
liens into this racial justice argument is she losing those same people as she attempts to, you know, arouse the minority sympathy for her arguments. it may be that this is such an us versus them election that there's no middle ground. >> especially in charlotte. this is happening in the biggest of all battleground states. so senator clinton was planning hoping to be in charlotte this morning, actually meeting with some black leaders. the mayor said please don't come. we have enough issues on our hands. please don't come. she decided not to. again, not sure where this is going in charlotte. they spent all this time in north carolina really trying to make that state competitive and it is very competitive. but you're right in terms of the white voters there if people see unrest in the streets and things this law and order strength message sounds much more appealing than it might have six weeks or so ago. >> she had a challenge with white voters especially in the south and i think this is the kind of image that could
exacerbate that. at the same time if you're talking about other voters who are less concerned about these kind of images, i think trump sounds like, you know, 1968 never really ended. his entire world view is kind of, you know, the graffiti ladened subways of new york of the 1970s and he's the sort of guy looking at the cities and they are drawing fire. it's a perspective that is befitting from someone of his background and his youth but not where the world is today. >> let's bring trump's voice into this little bit. you mention this. at one point after showing some empathy and especially in the tulsa shooting he said the officer made a mistake. next day he's on bill o'reilly and brings up a controversial policy that was used on mayor rudy giuliani and other mayors in new york. >> i would do stop-and-frisk. you have to. we did it in new york.
it worked incredibly well. you have to problem active. >> there are constitutional questions about that number one. and african-americans feel it's an excuse for racial profiling. trump says he unders this issue and hillary clinton doesn't. >> hillary clinton does not have to worry about the sirens and gun shots at night. she doesn't worry about it. she's slipping. she's slipping. no it's the poor family living in the inner-city, it's the mother who feels like a refugee in her own country. who is there to represent these families? clinton doesn't want to hear their voices. >> it's remarkable to hear that kind of language in american politics. it's so far from what we're used to. it's beyond the boundaries of our country's rhetoric. but the fact is, his perspective
is not that much different from hers. both of them are detached from that kind of world. so i'm not sure it's plausible for him to make that case either. but he's making up a lot of the stuff as he goes. do you think his staff knew he was going to come out for nationwide stop-and-frisk? no. he just answers questions. >> if you go back to that rally he ad libs but reading off a prompter. >> how many policies will he come up with during the course of 90 minutes tomorrow. >> he was making those comments in pennsylvania which has also emerged still a huge battleground. he's trying to sound empathetic. i'm not sure he has much appeal here among the black voters in the inner cities and philadelphia. but the nonscripted part.
>> you look at charlotte or philadelphia, those are college educated white voters particularly in north carolina a lot of folks moving down there because of the tech boom there so those i think the voters, you see joining those protests, right in some of these cities. i do think he's alienating those voters and that's hillary clinton, the only way she starts to edge into his lead among white voters is with those college educated. >> what balance does she want to strike? she was gone from the campaign trail much of this past week preparing for the debate. president obama took the lead and respond when donald trump says it's as bad as it's ever been in the african-american community president obama says not so much. >> i think even most 8-year-olds would tell you that old slavery thing wasn't good for black people, jim crow wasn't good for black people. we have to use our history to propel us to make more progress
inner-city philadelphia but it runs through the suburban, conservative leaning white voters who don't like either candidate and looking for one candidate to feel acceptable between may be feeling fearful cause of the disorder they see around them. it may not be realistic to say stop-and-frisk didn't work, that's not what these people are seeing or feeling and trump has an advantage in the way eva lie dates those fears. >> president bush yesterday, such a difference from donald trump. this happened, he approved this museum and to see him up with the obamas so striking. >> donald trump is the republican nominee. stay with us. new york city bombing guarantees terror will be a big debate topic. big questions for clinton and trump next. if you're searching other travel sites to find a better price...
switch today. ...one of many pieces in my i havlife.hma... so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you.
see if you're eligible for 12 months free at mybreo.com. the possibility of a flare was almost always on my mind. thinking about what to avoid, where to go... and how to deal with my uc. to me, that was normal. until i talked to my doctor. she told me that humira helps people like me get uc under control and keep it under control when certain medications haven't worked well enough. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. raise your expectations. ask your gastroenterologist about humira.
with humira, control is possible. if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, isn't it time to let the real you shine through? introducing otezla (apremilast). otezla is not an injection or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. with otezla, 75% clearer skin is achievable after just 4 months, with reduced redness, thickness, and scaliness of plaques. and the otezla prescribing information has no requirement for routine lab monitoring. don't take otezla if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. otezla may increase the risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression or suicidal thoughts, or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla reported weight loss. your doctor should monitor your weight and may stop treatment. side effects may include diarrhea, nausea, upper respiratory tract infection, and headache. tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, and if you're pregnant or planning to be. ask your dermatologist about otezla today.
otezla. show more of you. debate will play out tomorrow night at hofstra university. debate hall nice and quiet now. look for fireisty sparring. both taking a break. hillary clinton taking a break to meet with israeli prime minister netanyahu. >> we must remain vigilante. this is a fast-moving situation. and a sobering reminder that we need steady leadership in a dangerous world. >> that was secretary clinton commenting on last week's new york city bombing. she talks about more coordination with police and
smart coalition overseas. donald trump will see prime minister netanyahu. his approach to security is something the republican nominee cites as a model. >> profile arab or muslim men. how would that work is this >> well we have no choice. israel does it and israel does it very successfully. >> debate tips from b.b.? they both take a break. it fits. hillary clinton wants to say i can do this, i'm ready for this job, we may have some tensions. trump wants the israeli vote. another issue where you have two v-very different approaches. >> well the crime issue. it's an issue that makes people afraid. makes people believe that the world is unstable. the world is on fire. this is one of those issues that can cut eritrea way. for trump it's less about what happens and his reaction to it
and we've seen at times where he seems to fly off the handle or demand credit for things that happen in the world that people don't react quite so well. and hillary's pitch has been to say trump is dangerous because he does tend to react in those ways. but in the situation where the world seems scary and trump seems strong, these issues narre can point to things going on in the world and say that this administration has not kept things like terrorism under control and that he's just going march in there and put his foot down. >> it complicates her argument to make him unacceptable. every one of these world events happening in real-time whether it's the shootings or bombings, it interrupts her plan to make him seem not stable or unacceptable and that's the big job one over all of this trying to make him look unfit for the office and molly is absolutely
right in a time of strength to some people who may not have liked him before, you know, he doesn't seem so out of bounds. but it makes him look unacceptable. that's what she's trying to do tomorrow night, he's not presidential timber. but it's harder to do. >> in that preconference what was so interesting about it she had a press conference, she wanted to lean into this conversation. she talked about herself a lot in that press conference. she put herself in the situation room where she talked about her own experience, briefings she had with national security adviser. she talked about silicone valley. in that way she has to fill in. she can't say he's unacceptable and he has a bad tempermen. she has to make an affirmative argument for herself. >> straw man politic kansas be effective in times of panic. but trump finds ways to ruin best opportunities. he had extraordinary opportunity
in orlando the shooting in june at the nightclub and for three days he said things that backfired on him and he wound up coming out of that terribly. this is the challenge here is that when he's off a teleprompter and when he's on his feet or access to his phone, twitter feed he says things that can hurt him politically. what's remarkable he's done this time and time again and people are so skeptical about hillary clinton -- >> you're still in this race. you hit the key point. when you have these unsettling events it feeds the environment for change. if these things are happening what we have isn't working so we should try something different. she wants to make the case you can't take that risk with donald trump. listen to him here, when she comes after him, sure you have all this experience but look where it got us. >> i can talk about her record which is a disaster. >> i expect you'll do that anyway. >> i'll be doing that.
we're going to go back and forth. she's got a lot of baggage. >> her counter to that donald trump says all these things that she says is nuts, risky, dangerous and says actually helping the terrorists. >> we know that donald trump's comments have been used online for recruitment of terrorists. we've heard that from former cia director michael hayden who made it a very clear point when he said donald trump is being used as a recruiting sergeant for the terrorists. >> can she get under his skin to the point where he makes her point risky, your don't want to take this chance or has he been coached to not take the bait. >> i think both are possible but she has been trying, that's one of her things she's doing in these practice sessions is trying to get under his skin in some respect and i think that's a good way to potentially do it, calling him a recruiting tool. of course that goes at his
immigration plan which even some moderate republicans find wholly unacceptable and unamerican. so that's one of her attempts tomorrow. but the argument for change is a strong pull. >> everybody sit tight. we'll get next to the tale of the

irrevocable death penalty for the killer? >> no, i don't and i think you know i oppose the death penalty during all of my life. >> i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i'm not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. >> highlights of some past presidential debates. let's set the stage for tomorrow night. hillary clinton versus donald j. trump. she's 68, he's 70. her strength coming in to this campaign, political experience. his strength he's an outsider says the government needs a businesslike approach. weaknesses. a lot of viewers vote her as dishonest. voters are worried when he talks off script. hillary clinton wants to come across likeable. donald trump wants to shake that risky label. one big question how he handles debating a woman especially one
we know will challenge him on past statements. maybe there's a lesson here. >> donald trump said the following about you, quote, look at that face, would anyone vote for that. can you imagine that, the face of our next president. mr. trump later said he talking about your persona not your appearance. please feel free to respond what you think about his persona. >> it's interesting to me, mr. trump said that he heard mr. bush very clearly and what mr. bush said. i think women all over this country heard very clearly what mr. trump said. [ applause ] >> i think she's got a beautiful face and i think she's a beautiful woman. >> now for time purposes we didn't play all of that out. that was one of the classic moments of the primary debates. he was clearly flustered if you watch the entirety of that and then he gave that answer. she was the only woman
candidate. this time it will be the two of them right there. that's the thing i'm fascinated by. how does he handle that dynamic. >> hillary clinton was in several one on one debates during the primary because it got down to her and bernie sanders relatively quickly. it stakes stamina. although trump has questioned hillary clinton's stamina on various occasions we saw him fall off the stage at the end of some of these primary debates. he looked tired. so i think that's a question of can he show up consistently for the entire course of 90 minutes instead of when you're in a ten or 15 person debate you only have to talk -- although the focus was always on trump. >> we've seen these good ender dynamics play out. hillary clinton, barack obama calling her likeable enough. john edwards criticized her jacket in one of the debates. she usually i think does well in
those instances when gender is sort of an underlying, you know, kind of notion in terms of what's going on. she tends to use mockery. that's interesting. and how donald trump deals with sort of being belittled by a woman on stage like that. >> he has an instinct to go after people's appearance. time and time again over the years he's done this. i think, you know, can he resist that temptation. you can see that really going off poorly if he does that against her. >> another thing we saw, and i want to see this play out because i expect lester holt will have some. hillary clinton will have some past donald trump statements and if you remember again one of the classic moments from the primary debates is when donald trump did not like listening to his own words. >> you called women you don't like fat pigs, dogs, slobs and
disgusting animals. >> the big problem this country has is being politically correct. and frankly what i say and oftentimes it's fun, it's kidding, we have a good time. what i say is what i say. and honestly, megyn if you don't like it. i've been nice you. >> i done like his own words. not afraid to challenge the moderator's credibility. what are we looking for. >> that was old donald trump. if that donald trump returns tomorrow evening it will be a problem for him, no question. the clinton campaign, hillary clinton herself has been steadying in trying to internalize all his own words. it's the sound track of every one of her campaign ads or most. donald trump's own words. boy does she have a lot to work from. she is to be sparse in what she goes after but she will try to
get under his skin. how he reacts to it will be very interesting. he has not reacted very well in the past like that. i would be very surprised if he has a moment like he did with e megyn kelly. >> in august 2015 the hype was a different donald trump will show up. that didn't happen. even from what we're hearing is not that he's trying to really turn into a different person. he's not doing briefing, he's not doing traditional debate prep because he believes he shows up and does donald trump. so that has to be the game plan for this one. >> he's thinking more than they are talking about. >> but i don't think it's realistic to expect that a radically different character. >> the point about trump being trump, hillary clinton has given mark cuban a front row seat.
somebody who is like trump a reality tv star. he's a sharp credit of donald trump. donald trump's response was maybe he'll give a seat to jennifer flowers. this is about the presidency, boys and girls. not about these little stunts, but -- >> not the 1990s, but i guess in some instances -- >> does he think this gets under her skin if jennifer flowers sits in the front row of the debate. it remind us of donald trump's own infidelity, his pettiness, tabloid nature of his campaign. so, you know, listen. >> hillary clinton knows fachbs her husband's infidelity will go over with female voters like a lead balloon. >> the temptation to do this is classic trump. he always has to kind of outdo the other one. you got cuban, i'll match that.
it's how he operates. not great for america's sisk culture to say the least, but it is -- it's how he rolls as the kids say and the fact is it might be sort of a cute one day story but that's not going help move voters in the philadelphia suburbs. >> it gins up certain areas of his support. but we've learned to prepare for the unpredictable. up next clinton's debate history and moments. a comedic break. politicians say the darnest things. >> as secretary how many words per minute you can type? and how does president obama like his coffee, like himself, weak? >> those are really out of date questions. you need to get out more. >> this has been a lot of fun mrs. clinton. what's the best way to reach you.
e-mail? and you can't be our leader, if you don't lead. our next president needs to take action on social security, or future generations could lose up to $10,000 a year. we're working hard, what about you? hey candidates, do your jobs. keep social security strong. still not sure whether to stay or go on that business trip? ♪ should i stay or should i go? ♪ this fall at choice hotels, the more you go the better! now earn a free night when you stay with us just two times. book direct at choicehotels.com.
but i can't imagine doing anything else. now that the train makes it easier to get here, the neighborhood is really changing. i'm always hopping on the train, running all over portland. i have to go wherever the work is. trains with innovative siemens technology help keep cities moving, so neighborhoods and businesses can prosper. i can book 3 or 4 gigs on a good weekend. i'm booked solid for weeks. it takes ingenuity to make it in the big city.
again, that's the debate hall at hofstra university. donald trump and hillary clinton face off tomorrow night. the race is remarkably close as we get to the first debate. this is the barack obama-mitt romney map. look at these just a few recent battleground polls. donald trump up in north carolina, the momentum is at his back. these are the states to watch. in virginia, michigan and pennsylvania if we go back a month ago hillary clinton's lead on average was bigger in all three. five points in those states. those are the one us need to watch. if you look at the electoral map we have secretary clinton winning the race. if donald trump were to win all of the battleground he's ahead in nevada, florida, north carolina and ohio.
if he ran the board of the battleground states he comes up short. donald trump's priority in the debate and weeks left in the campaign turn something blue red. that's his big challenge. now for secretary clinton we know here's one challenge. she's going make history when she walks on to the stage tomorrow night the first woman as a major political party nominee. when her emails come up the conversation tomorrow won't go this way. >> let me say something that may not be great politics. but i think the secretary is right. and that is that the american people are sick and tired of hearing about your damn emails. >> thank you. me too. me too. >> that will not happen tomorrow. there's a lot we don't know about tomorrow night that will not happen and especially because it's been remarkable to watch people trying to play the moderators. the republican holding people in
contempt. they are trying to get a debate question. hillary clinton releasing a new ad today on russia. she's trying to get a debate question. the fbi in the obama administration friday night releasing more documents from its investigation into the emails, including some things that could be pretty tough questions for secretary clinton and she can't say this is old because these
are new documents. >> so much has happened since that debate. i believe that was at the las vegas debate last fall. gosh, i expect donald trump to talk about the fbi and james comey, what he said about this whole situation. her challenge and what i'm told her advisors have been trying to coach her on is to come up with a cogent, clear, simple answer to emails. acknowledge what she did was wrong. she wouldn't do it again. there was no intent and move on. sometimes she's gotten locked into this long answer about classified or not and the longer the answer on this the worse for her. so she's trying to acknowledge wrongdoing and move on. but there's no doubt that this
is going to be a central issue in the debate. >> if he challenges her credibility we know she will go after his transparency. where are your tax. who do you owe bank money to. she's trying to get at that. muddy the waters and make him more risky than her. we look at the past debates. check this out. >> if you've got something to say, say it directly. but you will not find that i ever changed a view or a vote because of any donation that i ever received. so i think it's time to end the very artful smear that you and your campaign have been carrying out in recent weeks and let's talk -- let's talk about the issues. >> bernie sanders, no response there. not so good. one of the things hillary clinton does well in these debates, she often knows the record of the other person better than they know their own record. she's able to bring something
out in these debates in a tack that we haven't heard before. that will be interesting to see what she's able to do with donald trump. on the e-mail thing she's going to have to answer the question like it's the first time she's hearing it. you played the dukakis thing about him answering and he later said that the reason he answered it that way was because he heard the question a thousand times. so i think that's her challenge. >> the mistrust of her is remarkable. and we see it in the polling. but after you talk to voters it's incredible the degree to which people believe she's dishonest. and to that end i think jeff is right. you can't litigate the nature of emails. you have to show contrition. and say i understand why folks have concerns about me and move on and make it about him. >> you do get a new look in these debates. a very prominent democratic strategist who is close to the clintons he was joking but not
really when i asked her what's her biggest priority and he said i'll take likeable enough. that was a line obama used. you do get a fresh look when you're on the debate stage because you're at that key moment. >> this is a really interesting choice for her. does she want to radically remake her image, be warm and fuzzy, convince america for the first time ever is this wonderful likeable person, or does she double down on her strengths while acknowledging that's a weakness. that's something she did well in the primaries. look. i get it. here's what i am good at. here is where i am on the substance of things. that's a much more effective route for her. on the emails she gets lost in the weed and gets defensive and that's a real trap for her. >> balance of prosecuting trump and promoting her. fascinating night ahead. next including a hint that one
of the presidential campaigns may be rethinking a huge battleground state. first the results of our quiz. we asked you if you thought the third-party candidates should have been allowed to debate. small supermajority, most of you said yes. i have asthma... ...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems.

split in the republican party over trump and a latino electorate may bring that state on to the board. >> depending how much money she's willing to put in there. we'll watch that one. >> ohio. it's 20 days since hillary clinton stepped foot into this classic battleground state and not expected to visit it again in the move september. that's a nod the fulfill reality that's facing her campaign. she's struggling mightily among white voters. the campaign hasn't written it off and will push back. we're spending money there. ohio the mother of all battleground states is not in her wheelhouse any more. our poll of polls, combination of polls shows trump is leading 43-38%. she does not need it in her math to 270. that's why it's slipping downtown priority list here. but for democrats in ohio who are hoping to see her again she's not been there since labor day and not coming back. >> wow.
it's the big battleground state. >> speak of heartland state i was surprised last week to see trump was headed back to wisconsin a state we haven't heard much about. but i was very surprised yesterday that two clinton surrogates, chelsea and ann holton wife of tim kaine headed to wisconsin. i talked to some clinton folks. we'll be okay in wisconsin but there's some internal sort of chatter about let's lock it down there. so i think that's why you see some folks headed out to wisconsin. why is that state closer now? same reason as jeff pointed out that ohio is now moving away from hillary. it's white voters. heavily white state. hillary is having problems with those folks. and the gop is coming home to trump. obama won it twice but keep in mind when bush ran both times wisconsin was very close. >> rust belt. watch that to the end. >> i spent some time in north
carolina all last week. historically black colleges and universities set to play a major role in that state. 11 everyone bcus. hillary clinton rolled out a plan, $25 million in funding to private hbcs. but you're seeing republicans be on campuses, hbcu campuses in north carolina, rnc officials in char lorkts they are planning to have a presence as well in some of these homecoming events which are huge events where alumni and students gather and so we'll see that in october. be interesting to see how these core colleges in north carolina such a battleground state now come in to play in november. >> battleground within the battleground. we'll close with a thought about the expectation you'll hear in the next 36 hours. fundamentals of the race favor hillary clinton. it's fair to say she has the most to lose entering the first debate. fair to say donald trump has the most to gain because he's competitive in this race even
though clear majority of americans say he doesn't have the point depth or temperment to be president. as peter hart puts it, professional. can he look and act like a president. for clinton the challenges are personal. can she persuade more voters to trust her and to come away she best understands them. beyond that much of the dict expectations conversations are, to be kind, bull pucky. they are competing for the same job. inherit the same problems. the winner gets the same title and salary. the candidates should be graded on the same scale. period. that's it for "inside politics". against thanks for sharing your sunday morning. we hope to see you tomorrow at noon eastern as we launch a weekday edition of "inside politics". up next "state of the union" with jake tapper.
