with 22 days to go until the election. cbs news checked in with voters in 13 key states that will likely decide the race. donald trump has lost the vote of some republican women. overall, republican voters want party leaders to stand be trump despite his recent problems. errol barnett takes us through the numbers with our elections director anthony salvanto in washington. anthony what's changed in the 13
>> across the states which will decide the election hillary clinton jumped out to a six-point lead. tied last month. what's driving this errol, is a big shift among women voters. she was up 5 points among women last month. now she is out to a 15 point lead. that's a significant change. and, we could be headed for what might be the largest gender gap we have ever seen. >> why? this is following what was said by donald trump in the tapes that were released? >> donald trump lost support among republican women as well. goes beyond a bit. 70% of voters feel now that donald trump does not respect women. what could be trouble for him going forward are, these moderate and republican women are precisely the kind of voters that he needs now to start winning. >> because of this some republican leaders have distanced themselves from trump. how do the voters see that? >> republican rank-and-file would like the party to get behind donald trump.
very few want them to push back against donald trump. this is a narrative we have seen actually throughout the year. where republican voters are, don't care very much what their party leadership has to say. >> secretary clinton still faces challenges of her own with the lingering e-mail controversy. how is that resonating? >> voters say the contents of those e-mails have made them feel like hillary clinton says, different things in private than she says in public. and part of that is wrapped up in her low numbers on telling the truth that those continue to be verw >> the final presidential debate is wednesday. how likely is it to change anyone's minds? >> most people watch the debate rooting for favorite candidate. like a sporting event. where people have a favorite team. a quarter voters say something in the debate may change their mind. but it has to be big. >> 73% say the will not change their mind. our cbs news elections director. thank you for break it down.
team in washington. the vice presidential candidates have their own views on where this election is headed. mike pence and tim kaine spoke with john dickerson on face the nation. >> another thing he is saying is the election is rigged. my question is -- is that a responsible thing for a candidate to say? >> well i think what donald trump is talking about is frankly what appears to be the monolithic support of the national media for hillary clinto their willful ignorance about the avalanche of hard evidence, not allegations, john, but hard evidence, now coming out in these e-mails of collusion and pay for play politics and the american people are just tired of it. we'll respect the outcome of this election, john. let me be very clear. donald trump said in the first debate, that we'll respect the will of the american people in this election. the peaceful transfer of power is a hallmark of, of american history.
tough. but, the american people are getting awful tired of this, this two on one fight with, many of you in the national media doing half of hillary clinton's work for her every day. all we're asking for, whatever you want to report about our campaign. let's get out there. let the facts speak for themselves. let's get before the american people this avalanche of e-mails that is confirming pay to play politics, outright corruption during the clinton years. >> governor, let me ask you a when donald trump talks about a rigged election here's the way one of his supporters hears that. a quote from the "boston globe" trump supporter. talking about being at polling places, donald trump encouraged supporters to watch the polling places. that's the way they're hearing talk about rigged elections. do you condone that kind of behavior? >> well, certainly not.
other american nervous in the exercise of their, of their franchise to vote. look, the states like my state of indiana, manage our election process. poll watching is a part of that process. it's a message that i delivered around the country. people that are concerned about this election. about us preserving the one person, one vote at the very center of our american democracy, should become involved. should volunteer at their neighborhood polling place. accountability. frankly that's how we protect the integrity of the vote for republicans, democrats, independents, everyone across the spectrum is served when we ensure that we have free and honest elections. >> instead of making weird claims our election is rigged and challenging the integrity of the electoral process he should be standing up against people who are trying to destabilize our election. >> the clinton campaign is saying the trump campaign is doing something wrong talking about this.
wrong to be talking about his leaked tax returns? >> no. i am not saying trump is wrong to be talking about this. that's not me. i don't know that we are really saying that. donald trump made a promise to the voters in 2014 if i run i will release my tax returns. secondly as you know that is the precedent for all in the modern era to release them. "the new york times" has a story that has some information about donald trump's taxes. and we think the information, essentially confirms what donald trump himself said on a debate stage. when hillary clinton said you probably don't pay taxes. donald trump said, yeah, that makes me smart. hey, a whole lot of us out here who pay taxes to support our military and to support our veterans we don't like being called stupid by a guy like donald trump who brags about, not paying taxes and stiffing our troops and stiffing veterans. >> with respect to donald trump and these accusations about his behavior, you have mentioned it shows a pattern of behavior on
that's what democrats defended against with bill clinton in 1992. republicans say allegations represent ape p pattern of beha shouldn't be president. if it was good enough to defend bill clinton, there was a separation, why not good enough for donald trump? >> bill clinton is not on the ballot. this is a race between donald trump and hillary clinton. second, i don't reach a conclusion about any particular allegation, but you do have to look at donald trump's own word and actions. fridays that created this bombshell was not somebody else saying something about donald trump. it was donald trump telling everybody this is the way i treat women. and then in the debate stage last sunday he was asked point-blank, did you act in accord with what you said. he didn't want to answer that question. he tried to avoid it a couple times. anderson cooper pinned him down. he looked at the camera, he said no, i never acted that way. i talked about it. i never did it.

government wasted no time in banning certain weapons for civilians. but did that make a difference? seth doane has a look. >> it is sad that when you lose your parents, you lose your past. when you lose your child, you lose your future. >> reporter: caroline lawton flung herself on top of her daughter when a gunman started shooting. but it was not enough to save era's life. >> she was 15 >> one american is among the injured in what is described as the worse massacre this century. a lone gunman with a high powered rifle. >> reporter: the shooting in a cafe in tasmanian town of port arthur happened 20 years ago. but telling the story till makes caroline shake. what is it laike being in a mas shooting? >> and bang there is another
gone. and bang, when is it going to be my turn? >> reporter: caroline was shot. >> this is me. >> reporter: on the stretcher. >> me on the stretcher. >> reporter: and did not know for hours that her daughter died. this its what is left of the cav fair where the gunman started shooting. in the end, 35 people were killed. it rocked australia. it came six weeks after a new prime minister had been elected. >> i thought to myself if i don't use newly acquired office to do something, the australian people are entitled to think well this bloke is not up to much. >> as to the question of gun control laws. >> reporter: so then prime minister john howard, a conservative politician, and close friend of george w. bush, pushed through sweeping gun control legislation just 12 days after the massacre. >> the hardest things to do in
away rights and privileges from your own supporters. >> reporter: the tough new laws banned sale and importation of all automatic and semiautomatic rifles and shot guns. forced people to present a legitimate reason and wait 28 days to buy a firearm. and perhaps, most significantly, called for a massive mandatory gun buy back. australia's government 700,000 firearms. reducing the number of gun owning household by half. >> people used to say to me, you have violated my human rights by taking away my gun. i tell the guy, i understand that. will you please understand the argument, the greatest human right of all is to live a safe life without fear of random murder. >> reporter: in the 15 years before the laws were passed. there were 13 mass shootings.
has not been one. plus, gun homicides decreased by nearly 60%. >> it is incontestable that gun related homicide have fallen quite significantly in australia. incontestable. >> it is clutching at straws. john howard simply didn't like guns. >> reporter: senator david lionhelm left the political party in protest over the strict gun laws. he insists they have had little effect. something done about keeping firearms out of the hand of people with a definite violent potential. but instead, all firearm owners were made to pay the price. i don't think there is any relationship between the availability of guns and the level of violence. >> reporter: to critics who say you can't say the changes in gun deaths happen because of this legislation? >> will i can say that. because all of the surveys indicate it.
