>> reporter: every campaign event is packed. here in ames, hillary clinton, they're up here in the upper deck cheap seats, anywhere they can go and still get a glimpse of the candidate. the final weekend means crunch time for the volunteers. you're not running out of stickers, i can see. >> we'll never run out of stickers. and jon joins us now here in iowa, jon, polls have shown that one of clinton's biggest challenges is trust. so, what are voters out there telling you about this latest e-mail controversy, will it hurt her? >> well i'm not hearing democrats or clinton supporters saying they're not worried about the e-mail issue. it could cut into one of their central arguments. one of her arguments is she's most likely to win in november. >> not what she wants to be talking about right now. jon, thank you.
