7:01 am
it's rigged for guys like donald trump. >> trump says the latest polls are rigged. >> when the people who control the political power can rig polls, you see these phony polls, and rig the media, they can wield absolute power over your life. >> all of this rhetoric is starting to whip up the crowds. just a moment ago a woman hit me with her sign. >> obamacare policyholders take a major blow. the administration confirmed insurance premiums will go up sharply next year. iraqi-led forces are pushing towards mosul as the campaign enters its second week. >> special forces packed with mortars an airstrike. in oklahoma a massive manhunt underway for a man suspected of a host of violent crimes including murder. >> now look, this is real. see, that's a [ bleep ]. >> four people have been killed in an accident on australia's east coast.

7:03 am
welcome to cbs this morning. election day is two weeks away. the race now focuses on 13 battleground states that will decide who is our next president. hillary clinton and donald trump will both campaign today in florida. that state has 29 electoral college votes. >> clinton is now calling on other women to help finish off her opponent. she rallied yesterday with senator elizabeth warren. the senator picked up trump's nasty woman comment from last week's debate and used it against the republican nominee. nancy cordes is in white plains, new york, where clinton will soon take off for florida. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. at the beginning of this campaign clinton was reluctant to draw too much attention to her gender, to imply that people should vote for her because she is a woman, but now with just two weeks to go, those concerns have largely fallen away and her top women supporters are openly
7:04 am
calling on the sisterhood to see her through. >> maybe it is a bit of a woman thing because we make lists. >> reporter: in new hampshire she argued she would make a great commander in chief. >> get this, donald, nasty women are tough. >> reporter: including senator elizabeth warren. >> he thinks that because he has a mouth full of tic tacs that he can force himself on any woman within groping distance. well, i've got news for you, donald trump, women have had it with guys like you. >> reporter: all of clinton's top allies are making the same case including michelle obama. >> he demeans and hue mill yates women as if we're objects. >> reporter: to president obama who was asked about trump's now infamous "access hollywood" tape. >> i think that's one of those things where if your best friend
7:05 am
who works there in the office somewhere had that video, it would be a problem for him. he's not running for president. >> reporter: the trump campaign isn't conceding the women's vote blanketing its rallies with women for trump signs as trump himself tries to wield his numbers higher. >> i think we're doing better with women than with men, frankly. >> reporter: one poll shows since mid october trump has gained 12 points and trump lost 16 among non-college educated white women and clinton has made women's issues a key part of her closing arguments. >> if you believe women and girls should be treated with dignity and respect and women should be able to make our own health care decisions and marriage equality should be protected, then you have to vote. >> reporter: she's also spending more time campaigning for women. just in the past couple of days she has visited pennsylvania and new hampshire, two battleground states where she has racked up a pretty comfortable lead, but
7:06 am
where she went anyway because she wanted to help out two democratic women who are locked in closer senate races. donald trump is spending his third straight day in florida. major garrett is in tampa where trump held a rally last night. major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. donald trump and his advisors do not believe the polls, certainly not the ones showing him trailing. what they do believe in are crowd sizes. last night, huge crowds in tampa. other large crowds across florida. trump advisors say give a much better indication of where this race is and where it's heading. but turning crowds into votes requires organization, and on that score trump is still playing a bit of catchup. donald trump entertained a raucous crowd last night. >> i love my second home. >> reporter: the polls show him slightly ahead. >> we are leading, number one. >> reporter: and again questioning hillary clinton's
7:07 am
fitness for office and the fbi probe that cleared her of wrongdoing. >> we have to investigate the investigation, folks. our system is rigged. she never had a chance of being convicted. >> reporter: florida polls show trump trailing so before he hit the stage surrogates practically begged supporters to register, volunteer and vote. >> hey, all them signs y'all got, they don't mean nothing if you don't vote. >> we need these thousands of people to push harder for the next 14 days. >> we must double and triple our efforts to make sure donald trump gets elected. >> reporter: the evening rally was trump's fifth sunshine state stop of the day, part of a frantic effort to capture 29 crucial electoral votes. >> i think we're going to win florida big. i think we're going to win florida big. >> at a meeting with florida farmers trump weeded out polls that he has big losses to clinton. >> they call them dark polls,
7:08 am
phony polls put out by phony media. >> reporter: trump's campaign also debuted a new nightly life stream show on facebook. >> he will win. we will win. >> reporter: trump hit other battleground states through talk radio dismissing new accusations of sexual misconduct. >> he grabbed me on the arm. he's a important star. he grabbed me. he grabbed me on the arm. i'm sure she's never been grabbed before. they make it so it is all lies. >> reporter: there is no shortage of self-confidence within the trump campaign, but at that may only be skin deep. here's one example. the campaign is sending running mate mike pence to utah. utah, which hasn't voted for a democratic presidential nominee since 1964. that indicates the polling there is problematic for the trump campaign and pence is being sent to shore things up. >> thanks, major. the chief national
7:09 am
correspondent for the "new york times" magazine and a cbs news political contributor. good morning nkts hi, charlie. >> if this race is closer than the polls say, what will be causing it to be that? >> well, i think people -- a lot of trump supporters are looking for a reason to cast a protest vote. there are undecided and independents who want to cast that vote. trump has been a vote for protest. the early polls indicate that. he is a grievance candidate to a lot of people and people, especially if they don't think he can win, will feel empowered to vote. >> not a vote for him but a vote for protest? >> correct. >> he keeps talking about phony and dark polls, he has different polls that indicate different numbers. one of his people told me we are for sure going to win in florida. what do you make of all of this? >> candidates who are not in the lead always talk about how the polls are wrong, their internal polls are better. by the way, our crowds are amazing and i'm seeing things no one else can see because i go to
7:10 am
these -- >> that's what president dukakis said. >> still talking about those crowds, yes, he is. so, yes, there is historical precedent for this kind of rhetoric, sort of taking ahold in the last couple of weeks. however, trump, again, he's a bit of an x factor candidate. his crowds agagenuinely are hug. there's been no dropoff. there's also -- you just don't -- polls are a little bit more iffy this time around because you just don't know what trump voters are telling pollsters because there's so much distrust to begin with. >> nancy reported on the female factor. hillary clinton now talking about women campaigning for some of the female senators using senator elizabeth warren. what we're watching in florida is an uptick in women in early voting and absentee voting. is there evidence that they're turning out in larger numbers than expected? >> well, if there's an uptick, you have to think according to the polling right now. many of them are voting for hillary clinton. and, i mean, in fairness, in addition to the clinton campaign
7:11 am
emphasizing this, trump is giving a lot to work with. even like this thing about the adult film star today, didn't get a lot of traction, but to say that, that does send a message. >> we were talking about this. now elizabeth warren and bernie sanders, if hillary clinton is elected, how much will they want to draw her to the left? >> quite a bit and that's a story worth watching. i think beginning november 9th. so we'll see. i mean, again, she has to win first. i think they're focused on that. yeah, i mean, that to me -- talks of a republican party split are a little bit over shadowing what will i think be a pretty serious split in the democratic party. >> there will be a lot of stories to watch on november 9th. >> i'm going to take a little bit of a nap. >> thanks, mark. we'll bring you all the results as they come in two weeks from today. our election night coverage starts tuesday, november 8th at 4:00 p.m. pacific time and you can watch all day on our streaming network cbsn. >> a lot of people say they'll

♪ good morning to our viewers in the west. it is tuesday, october 25th, 2016. welcome back to "cbs this morning." there is more real news ahead, including donald trump warning voters not to trust the polls. we'll look at his claims with cbs news election director anthony salvanto. here is the eye opener at 8:00. >> donald trump bringing out employees of his to describe what it is to work for donald trump. >> i'm power trump. >> i didn't tell you to say that, right? >> absolutely not. >> what do you make of all this? >> they always talk about how the polls are wrong, internal follows are better and our crowds are amazing.
8:01 am
>> that's what president dukakis said. >> yes. >> forces are still clearing bashika and up against the guerrilla tactics being used by isis. >> they managed to steal a police officer's truck and started recording videos on facebook live. >> first pitch expected to happen right there, shortly after 8:00 tonight. >> the two teams have a combined 176 years without a championship. to put that in perspective, that is almost as long as a baseball game feels. >> president obama last week said that this year's election is like donte's inferno. well, that's fine, as long as it doesn't turn into a disco inferno. no matter who wins, rhythm loses. >> rhythm loses.
8:02 am
>> what music were they listening to. got it. >> i'm charlie rose with gayle king and norah o'donnell. election day is two weeks from today. early voting is under way in more than 30 states. donald trump held a series of large rallies yesterday in florida. in another battleground state, hillary clinton campaigned in new hampshire. >> they attacked each other but also talked about specific policies they would fight for if elected. >> we're going to make affordable child care so nobody pays more than 10% of your income for child care. we're going to work for paid family leave. >> tariffs on companies that outsource american jobs, the companies leave, they fire their employees, we're not going to let it happen any longer. >> we're going to close the loophole, we're going to end the fact that millionaires can pay a lower tax rate than a nurse or teacher or police officer. >> a tax cut for all middle
8:03 am
class families, a big one. >> public colleges and universities, tuition free for any families making less than $125,000 a year. >> legislation to provide school choice, which the labor unions, the unions that want to allow and we're going to end common core and bring our education local. >> of course, i want you to vote for all of us, but more than that, i want you to vote for yourself. and for your families. and for your hope, for our future. >> there has never been a political phenomena like what we're doing right now and we're all part of it. and we have to finish it off, so get out and vote. >> hillary clinton and donald trump will both campaign today in florida. >> we are near the end of an unconventional election, but as usual, the polls are becoming a bigger part of the story, the most recent poll shows hillary
8:04 am
clinton with a nine point lead over donald trump. to put that into concontext, we examined 40 years worth of polls. this time back in 1976, jimmy carter led gerald ford by five points. that was nothing compared to bill clinton in 1992, his 17 point advantage over then president george h.w. bush dwarfed hillary clinton's margin. in 2000, george w. bush led al gore by two points in our poll. that was a little more than two weeks before the closest election in modern american history. eight years late, barack obama held a comfortable 13 point lead over john mccain. >> cbs news elections director anthony salvanto is with us. good morning. >> good morning. >> so the point is, the cbs news polls have been pretty accurate? >> yeah, we have done okay. >> done okay. the trump campaign put out a memo yesterday in part to raise money, but in it said if trump wins new hampshire, colorado or pennsylvania, he could win the election and recent polls show him ahead in iowa, ohio, maine,
8:05 am
florida, nevada and north carolina. how does that memo square with the truth and some of the data we have seen out there? >> he's down in most of those states and he's down in the electoral college overall. that doesn't mean he's out. difference is voters in polls tell you what they're going to do. we have seen that over history, over time. and right now we find that donald trump's voters are willing to talk about voting for donald trump. they're proud of it. and they're telling that to pollsters, they're telling friends and family. they're not shy about it. they're showing up, they're showing up in the polls. other thing is, they say think donald trump is talking about the issues and topics he wants to talk about, not what they want to hear about. that's change in washington, that's the economy, that's the place you can go to try to -- >> there is no secret trump vote out there not showing up in the polls? >> there isn't. even if you look at the early vote, in florida, for example, a million ballots have come in, you analyze that and you see that the -- he doesn't have a lot of new vote coming in. most of the folks who turned in
8:06 am
ballots voted in past presidential elections. one of the things they talked about is rallying this new set of voters to come out and vote for him. that hasn't shown up yet. >> when there is a change in the last two weeks, generally what happens and what causes it, is it voters coming home to their natural political place? or is it some outside event? >> yeah, coming home is a big part of it here. donald trump has been down with republicans relative to how well hillary clinton has done with democrats. she's got nine and ten democrats, even after the whole bernie sanders fight, she rallied her base. she has 20% of republicans, the reluctant republicans, largely women, largely suburban women, he's running about ten points down in state after state, especially college educated women, all of whom have been reluctant to come over to his side. if he can rally that base back to him, then he gets a lot closer. >> there is so much talk of this race is over, hillary clinton has already won. isn't there a danger in that for her team to become overconfident, and what can he do to turn it around?
8:07 am
>> yeah, i mean, that's one of the things that comes to the territory of being a pollster. the losing side wants to say you're wrong. the winning side doesn't want their voters to be complacent. you look at the voters hillary clinton needs, younger voters who say they're less likely to vote, they don't like really either candidate, that's a turnout issue. and she still has the -- the democrats will rely on that turnout. >> can he turn it around? >> can we talk about texas? early voting has begun. what have we seen there? >> texas is a great story for exactly that kind of underperformance. with college educated white voters, with white men and white women, now, donald trump is still winning them. but he's not winning them by the kind of margins that republicans typically do. and that's made this race close. do i think hillary clinton -- latinos who say that they're very motivated, that they can't wait to vote, so you get that part of the electorate and they're all for hillary. >> is it within the margin of error? >> it is. i'm not sure that hillary clinton is positioned yet to
8:08 am
outright win texas. i think that's about as close as it gets. still that closeness tells the story. >> i think it is interesting because i think that texas stays republican. but i do think it is interesting about how that state could trend purple in upcoming presidential elections. >> right. >> start to tilt. >> like north carolina did. >> exactly. people thought -- >> texas girl and the north carolina boy. >> tomorrow, issues that matters series looks at the supreme court under the next president. two famous lawyers will be here at the table, studio 57. that's great. they face off against each other in bush versus gore, the supreme court case that decided the 2000 election. millions of americans will face big price hikes and fewer choices when obamacare open enrollment begins. the government says the cost of midlevel health plans next year will increase by an average of 25%. that will hit consumers in 39 states. major carriers are dropping out in some markets. about one in five consumers will be able to choose from only one
8:09 am
provider. government numbers show about 2.5 million americans not currently enrolled could be eligible for subsidies to off set cost increases. we need a bigger understanding of why this is happening. you know. the idea was not only to spread coverage around, but that by spreading the coverage around, not only would it help people get more preventive care, but it would ultimately bring the costs down. and instead the premiums are skyrocketing. >> the question is what happened. >> who is profiting on this? is it the way the law that was set up failed? an interesting story. the 8-year-old daughter of a california police officer killed in the line of duty received a moving escort when she returned to school. >> hi, vanessa. how are you doing? >> good. >> good. good morning. look, all your uncles came to take you to school this morning.
8:10 am
>> more than a dozen of her father's fellow palm springs officers came to pick her up. they call themselves her uncles. her father was killed two weeks ago, months from retirement. the officers took vanessa all the way to her class before saying good-bye and wishing her a good day. >> i love -- >> they're a family and always looking out for one another. >> always a human behind the stories. and just the fact they wanted to make sure she was okay, she's off to a good start. go, vanessa. we're used to hearing that too much salt in your food is a really bad thing. ahead, why salt is being used to help treat respiratory problems. >> here is an opportunity to be a little more proactive, maybe reduce the amounts of medication that you're currently taking, reducing the amount of attacks. >> michelle miller go inside a so-called salt room to look at the apparent benefits. and why some doctors are just a,
