7:14 am
major, good morning. >> reporter: good morning. a quick bit of context about that arizona poll number. a democrat hasn't won arizona in a presidential d only won arizona presidential election once since 1948. so statistical tie for trump there is not good news. he must steady the ship and that is to prevent more defections of republicans and reassure skittish donors. part of that is an economic speech in a few hours that will emphasize across the board tax cuts and lots of help for opposition trade deals present and pending. >> she lacks the judgment. she lacks the temperament. >> reporter: over the weekend, donald trump tried to change the subject from interparty feud back to hillary clinton. >> i've always had a great temperament. you know, i win. i have a winning temperament. the subject can't be on her, because she has been such a failure so they came up with the word temperament. >> reporter: a new poll shows

temperament to effectively serve as president while more than two-thirds believe trump does not. >> i'm not ready to support donald trump. >> reporter: arizona senator jeff flake repeated calls for trump to change his approach. >> he has only received about 14 million votes in the primaries so far. to get from 14 to 65 or so, you've got to take more responsible positions. >> reporter: on saturday, another republican congressman of virginia announced he would vote for congressman to renounce trump. >> we will have disagreements, but we will disagree as friend. >> 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

7:18 am
>> so i may have short-circuited it. >> reporter: clinton gave a tortured explanation friday for why she mischaracterized the fbi director's comments claiming incorrectly ed 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 >> she is lying about lying. >> reporter: republicans argue sunday she was still parsing her word. >> 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. campaign, thank you.

today. clinton had a rare moment on friday. she answered questions from preselected reporters at the national association of black and hispanic journalist 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 for answers about her private e-mail servers but said she never lied. fbi dir july a very small number of clinton's e-mails, quote, 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 inconsistent? >> well, here is -- here are the facts behind that as well. you know that i preside -- i sent over 30,000 e-mails to the
8:06 am
director comey said only 3 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, including myself, would have not suspected that they were classified. >> i'm from the "the washington post" and thank you for being here all us we encourage you to do this more often with reporters across the country. especially 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 -- you know, don't doubt that.
8:07 am
i know it doesn't make me feel good when people say those things and i recognize that i have work to do. but when i started running for the senate in new york, a lot of the same things were said. i won. i worked hard for the people of new york. and i was re-elected with 67% of the vote. >> cbs news contributor bob schieffer is with us, our former chief washington correspondent and former host of "face the nation." good morning. >> hey. >> speak to this question about e-mails. she st >> you know, i think she has to, somehow or another, stop these, yes, but apologies as it were. why doesn't she just say, look, i really made a mistake, i regret it, i would never put the nation's national security at risk. but to try to go through all of these fine points and things.
8:08 am
be better than a long answer in this case. 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 bury it forever because republicans are going to keep bringing it up. >> but that simple, bob? say i made a mistake, i'm sorry, i learned, i move on? >> that would be -- i mean -- >> it seems really easy. >> i'm not here with bias cots business. but i think short answers in this case would help her. she would be better served. >> she also failed to respond -- i think i'm seeing the full conference she had there, although how limited it was. she failed to respond to the idea of having more press conferences too. she 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 is going to reset his campaign today. he is in detroit giving a speech
8:09 am
republicans who are still very concerned. what concerns them most? >> well, i mean, first, he sa says -- you know, the title of donald trump's speeches are not always what donald trump's speeches are about. he could announce he is going to talk about galalo's telescope and a baby would cry and he has a way of topping his own -- his own stories. but i think in this case, we will have to wait and see what he has to say. hi trying to get him back on track to talk about something other 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. >> but what about this on the other side of the aisle? a new "the washington post"/abc news poll shows trump 4% lead among independent voters. those are the voters that will help decide this election. >> that is the one bright spot
8:10 am
that poll seems to favor hillary clinton. i mean, she is just leading everywhere. you heard major garrett this morning talking about it's very, very close in arizona. you know? how long has it been since a democrat has carried arizona? 1948, maybe? >> yeah. the land of john mccain and barry goldwater and others. >> what is the gop worried about as we sit here today? >> they are worried about now. this is very real. i spent a lot of time last week, over the weekend, talking to republican, kind of, quote, insiders, unquote. they are not so worried now about whether he is going to win or lose, but whether if he loses by a large enough margin in some of these key states that he takes down their senate candidates. for example, ohio, michigan, new hampshire, pennsylvania. they are saying to me, look, if he wins by eight or ten points, it will take down the republican --
8:11 am
>> right. if he wins by eight or ten and he loses by eight or ten, it will take down the senate candidates with them. they are more worried now about losing the senate now, i think, than they are about whether or not they win the white house because, i mean, they really worried. here is how serious it is. i had a former cabinet officer in a republican administration tell me last week, he was calling around and trying to get together a group to go talk intervention, but to say, it would be best for all concerned if you resigned from the ticket. now that is not going to happen. we know it's not going to happen, but the fact that people are talking that way just tells you how worried they are right now about this. >> bob schieffer, always good to see you. >> thank you. you in the star of "hamilton" will be here in studio 57. ahead, javier munoz shows us how he became a founding father of
