leading trump including in new hampshire as trump heads to new england today with a town hall set for maine. savannah? >> hallie jackson, thank you. chuck todd is in washington for us this morning. chuck, good morning to you. i know you've been reporting about the feeling among some republican officials that maybe there would be a way that trump would actually withdraw from the race or be persuaded to do so. is that real or is that establishment fantasy at this point? >> i think it's a fantasy. i can't believe yesterday where that issue was there. that somehow in a meeting with him they could convince him to do this. i think that's definitely fantasy. what really they're hoping to do is in the same way that you had republican leaders who were unhappy with trump, they went to his children, they convinced him to change campaign managers and it was the children that finally made that happen. they convinced him to pick mike pence over his own gut which was
7:09 am
that. again, the children were involved. i think realistically what they hope to do is say good grief, can you at least put some structure in place. can you not do 17 interviews in between rallies and get yourself off message and stop attacking this person and stop attacking republicans. i thinker who hoping realistically with the help of the kids provide structure and tone it down. >> what republicans, if it was any other candidate running against hillary clinton, this would be a rough patch for hillary clinton given some of the items in the news. >> incredibly rough patch whether it's the current state of the economy, anemic growth, whether it is her insistence that somehow director comey let her off the hook on e-mails and she sort of reinterpreted what comey said in a way that was misleading. throw in the discomfort from
7:10 am
never mind we just started air strikes in libya because isis is there. libya was a high profile intervention and hillary clinton push. the point is in the last five days this could easily have been hillary clinton's worst five days post-convention and instead the exact opposite and it's all due to donald trump's lack of self-discipline. >> i have 30 seconds and two raw politics things. talk to me about polls and the fund-raising game. >> i can tell you the polls look like it could be next week by donald trump. all hints are this bounce is real and you see it trickle into the states. we could see double digit leads for clinton in swing states. the money, you have to say that donald trump looked like a national candidate that you would expect a mitt romney to have looked like four years ago with the amount of money he raised in july. july was a great month. july was the most unified the republican party had been in seven months. >> from small donors. >> small donors.

7:13 am
that's been misinterpreted. don't travel to miami. >> reporter: at the body belly baby class which isn't near wynwood, pregnant women like amanda are scared. the new normal always includes mosquito repellent and despite temperatures topping 90 degrees, her new dress code is long sleeves and pants for going out. >> i actually just spent so much money on amazon buying more bug spray. i have bug spray in my husband's car, my purse. all over the place. we're trying to do everything we can. >> reporter: the florida governor rick scott has announced the department of health here in the state will now provide free zika tests to any pregnant women in the state. there had been a lot of calls, ob-gyns reporting that there have been calls for these tests
