7:11 am
seconds. in gymnastics, the fierce five were back in action. team usa is headed for the team final after dominating the qualifying round. three-time world champion simone biles was once again a pint-sized powerhouse, but gabby douglas hoping to repeat as olympic champion did not make the cut for the individual this. >> a stunner in rio! >> reporter: after 15 wins, venus and serena williams lost their first-ever olympic doubles match. rio's grueling cycling course proved too much for a dutch rider who was in the lead until this frightening crash. >> oh! >> reporter: she fractured her spine and suffered a concussion, but later tweeted from the hospital that she was super disappointed after best race of my career.

7:14 am
that arizona poll number. a democrat hasn't won arizona in a -- has only won arizona in a presidential election once since 1948, so a statistical tie for trump there is not good news. he must steady the ship. that's to prevent more defections of republicans and reassure skittish donors. part of that will be through an economic speech in a few hours that will emphasize across-the-board tax cuts, lots of help for the fossil fuel industry and opposition to trade deals, present and nd lacks the temperament. >> reporter: over the weekend, donald trump tried to change the subject from mistakes and intra party fueds back to hillary clinton. >> i've always had a great temperament, and you know i win. i have a winning temperament. the subject can't be on her because she's been such a failure. so they came up with the word temperament. >> reporter: but a new poll shows more than six in ten believe clinton has the personality and temperament to effectively serve as president,
7:15 am
does not. >> i'm not ready to support donald trump. >> reporter: arizona senator jeff flake repeated calls for trump to change his approach. >> he's only received 14 million votes in the primary. to get from 14 to 65 or so, you've got to take more responsible positions. >> reporter: on saturday another republican congressman, scott ridgel of virginia, announced he would vote for libertarian gary johnson, becoming the third gop congressman to renounce trump. w but we will disagree as friends -- >> reporter: late friday trump tried to end his fight with the gop, reading slowly off prepared remarks, trump reversed his decision to withhold support for house speaker paul ryan and senator john mccain in their re-election bids. >> working hand in hand, we will grow our majority in the house and in the senate. we need that.
7:16 am
>> reporter: campaign chairman ul manafort predicted sunday trump was ready for more discipline. >> she is very focused, he know what he needs to do. i'm confident he's going to start doing it. >> reporter: rnc reince priebus played a big role until trump's endorsement reversal. he warned trump if he doesn't change he risks not only his election but majorities in the house and senator. top republicans hope trump gets it and will become less but as said in one entirely different context, hope is not a strategy. >> there's certainly more to come. hillary clinton will respond to donald trump with her own economic speech in detroit later this week. her campaign is trying to keep the focus on the economy and her opponent, after clinton's latest comments about her state department e-mails raised new questions. nancy cordes is tracking the clinton campaign. nancy, good morning. >> reporter: good morning.
7:17 am
before he gives his speech point to economic experts who say his proposals would lead to a lengthy recession and kill jobs. clinton is visiting more small businesses this week as she tries to prove that she, not the billionaire, can steer the economy. >> an economy that works for everyone, not just those at the top. >> reporter: clinton's relentless focus on the economy, as trump veers off course. >> she's a monitor. >> reporter: may be paying off. % she's prepared to be president, compared to just 36% who now say that about trump. the name-calling probably doesn't help. >> she is a totally unhinged person. she's unbalanced. >> reporter: the comparison has enabled clinton to take the lead even though she performs poorly in some areas. only a third of virginia voters think she can bring change to washington or that she tells the truth.
7:18 am
it. >> reporter: clinton gave a tortured explanation friday for why she mischaracterized the fbi director's comments, claiming incorrectly that he said she never publicly lied about her e-mails. >> director comey had said that my answers in my fbi interview were truthful. that's really the bottom line here. what i told the fbi, which he said was truthful, is consistent with what i have said publicly. >> she's lying about lying. >> reporter: republicans argued words. >> she now has a fundamental way of saying to people it wasn't that i lied to you, i just didn't quite remember whatever it was i was going to say. >> reporter: but in politics, everything is relative and a new national poll asked voters who they think is more honest, clinton or trump. she won that one by a narrow margin, dana, 49 points to 40. >> ncy cordes, thank you. florida's gulf coast this morning is under a flood watch. heavy rain already pounded parts

friday. she answered questions from preselected reporters at the national association of black and hispanic journalists convention in washington. >> clinton's last formal news conference was last december in iowa, more than 240 days ago. clinton said on friday she might have, quote, short circuited it. her public answers about her private e-mail servers, but she said she never lied. fbi director james comey said in july a small number of clinton's e-mails bore markings that indicated the presence of classified information. >> he did say there were three e-mails that were marked classified at the time. is that an inconsistency? >> well, here is what -- here are the facts behind that as well. you know that i preside -- i sent over 30,000 e-mails to the state department that were work related e-mails.
8:06 am
out of 30,000 had anything resembling classified markers. the three e-mails out of the 30,000 did not have the appropriate markings. and it was therefore reasonable to conclude that anyone, inuding myself, would have not suspected that they were classified. >> ed o'keefe of the washington post. thank you for being here and on behalf of all of us, we encourage you to do this m country. [ applause ]. specially those news organizations that travel the country with you everywhere you go. a majority of voters consistently say frankly they don't like you and they don't trust you. how would you lead a nation where a majority of americans mistrust you? >> i take this seriously. don't doubt that. i take it seriously. it doesn't make me feel good
8:07 am

8:08 am
i mean, she made a mistake. she has said she made a mistake and i think if she kind of would let it go at that, maybe it would put this to rest. i mean, it's not going to put it -- it's not going to bury it forever because republicans are going to keep bringing it up. >> but that simple i made a mistake, i'm sorry, i learned i move on. >> that would be -- i mean, i'm not -- >> seems really easy. >> i'm not here to advise candidates on how to run their business. but i think short answers in this case wou would be better served. >> she also failed to respond to ed o'keefe, i've seen the full conference there, she failed to respond to the idea of having more press conferences. sat there and smiled but did not respond. >> i think more press conferences would be good for her and for the press. >> i think it's better for everybody. >> word is that donald trump will reset his campaign today. he's in detroit giving a speech on his economic agenda. but you've been talking to republicans who are still very
8:09 am
what concerns them most? >> well, i mean, first he's says he's -- the title of donald trump speeches are not always what donald trump speeches are about. heould announce he is going to talk about gal lay owe's telescope or something and then a baby would cry and he has a way of topping his own stories. but i think in this case we'll have to wait and see what he has to say. his advisers are desperately trying to get him back on track than some of these ad lib remarks that he keeps getting deeper and deeper in trouble. and this is now beginning to be reflected in these polls. >> what about this on the other side of the aisle? a new washington post abc news poll shows trump with four-point lead among independent voters. those are the voters that will help decide this election. >> that is the one bright spot because every other thing in that poll see to favor hillary

8:11 am
they are more boarworried now a losing the senate than they are about whether or not they win the white house. they're really, really worried. here is how serious it is. i had a former cabinet officer in the republican administration tell me last week he was calling around and trying to get together a group to go talk to trump and not as an intervention but to say it would be best for from the ticket. now, that's not going to happen. but we know it's not going to happen. but the fact that people are talking that way just tells you how worried they ar right now about this. >> bob, always good to see you at the table. the new star of "hamilton" will be here in studio ahead. javier mun december shows how he became a founding father of the
