7:10 am
ll try to clarify. >> reporter: therumpampaign poing this video on social media portraying clinton as a may havsht-rcuited it. >> reporter: and trump having a >> she tk a short-circuit in e brain anshe's got problems.i an, we had real ppl, this would be a real proem for her. but i think th the people of this country don w that is going to short-circuit here. not as your president. >> reporter: trump's new attacks come on the heels of new that show m in a summep. our abc news/"washington post" poll showing many voters worried about trump. two-thirds say he has the wrong temperament. almost as many say he's unqualified and unustworthy. a point former cia director mike morellade on "this week" in regards to trump's relationship
7:11 am
putin. >> from mr. ump's perspective, right, he simply heard putin complint him. he then responded by complimenting him. he never thought that he might be being played. >> reporter: trump firing back on twitter calling morell, a man who has made some serious bad calls and a total clinton flunky. and today in detroit trump will unveil his econoc plan. and we hava here are some highghts. trumps want to repeal and replace obamacare d limit taxation of business, all businesses to 15% and stop all payments using tax dollars to the u.n. gbal wainprograms and also exclude child care expenses from taxation. now, the clinton campaign is already calling this trumponomics saying if he wins, you lose. >> thanks very much. let's bring this to matt dowd.
7:12 am
of a hole right now, but what he's trying today, an economic speech, biggest issue focused on jobs and trying to consolidate republicans with a lot of ideas that have been rublican orthodoxy for a long time. >> yeah, i mean, i think he's much better arguing on the ground of the economic situation in the country today instead of this argument around the if i were donald trump i would not get in an argument about in the course of this race. it's not a g very good for him in this. 's muc equivalent of m ry58 sterday which was an amazing al record, in order to break is pattern, he's going to have to hit it out of the park. >> out of the park and one o do it. e question is, can he stay on message for a consistent series of days and weeks? at the same time, you're sayin you know, as we look at our poll, there isn eight-point lead for hillary clinton in our ab"washington post" poll in bothheour-way race and you're paying attention to the
7:13 am
green party candidate and gary johnson, the libertarian candidate can actually have an impact. >> yeah, i think, unlike years past, you know, where the ird or fourth party dwindle as they get closer to ection day i actually think they're going to rise as we get closer election day. i think because of the dissatisfaction as we see in the abc poll with both major party candidates and the fact they're both unliked andhereoth distrusted means there's an their support. the questi, george, is can they g enough support to g in that debate, that first debate in september? i think it's unlikely but that' to beat which is 15%. >> it worked for ross perot back in 1996. -- 1992. finally, hillary clinton stepped in it again over the weekend with those new comments out the mail server. how does she hold on, consolidate this lead she now has? >> don't go on the air. i think the best thing that she has ne in the course of this is let donald trump occupy the
