11:05 am
>> i don't think so. >> clinton is demanding comey share more that these emails aren't bombshells, but duds, maybe halloween duplicates of what the fbi already knows. and also to confirm their suspicion that clinton did something wrong. though right now nobody really knows what the emails show. and may not until well after the election. that hasn't stopped donald trump from trying to capitalize. >> now you have the fbi has found, you're not going to believe this one, this j happened, another 650,000 emails. i think that's called the mother lode. >> to his campaign, it's an october surprise that's surprisingly helpful. with the race getting tighter in battleground florida, starting to catch up to clinton nationally just eight days out. that was halle jackson reporting. coming up, nbc's mark murray

11:15 am
indicating it hasn't changed much. but if you are the clinton campaign, you're concerned that every time this race has been about her and particularly her emails has never been something that they've wanted to talk about. and particularly when we only have eight days left. on the other hand, here's one thing that's going on. people are voting across the country and there's a question on whether this has invigorated some democratic voters, they end up saying the fbi is agai i'm going to go out and vote we don't know right now. this is going to be a story we're going to be monitoring over the next few days. >> is there enough time for donald trump to try to erase his deficit? >> there's always time and there's always a path for donald trump to be able to win this the problem that he has is, his path is such a narrow one. he has to win north carolina. he has to win florida, he has to win ohio. he has to end up doing well in all of these battleground
11:16 am
them to get to 270 electoral votes so donald trump has always had the tougher path to be able to win this presidential race. but there is a path, it's just a tricky one. >> people across the country have voted already, 20 million voters. who do you think that means for the campaign? >> the states where democrats have a very early good early vote lead, north carolina and nevada. twote flip side, the trump campaign and the republican party is doing pretty well in florida. florida is almost a jump ball right now. what i want to see particularly in florida and north carolina, there are at least another four or five days of early voting how it impacts the numbers at this time going into the weekend might decide those races. >> i guess we'll be seeing a few more polls.
11:17 am
has budged the numbers very much. >> you're going to be busy. >> thank you, mark. >> jury selection sunday way in the case of a white former police officer who allegedly shot an unarmed black man in south carolina in 2015. michael slager pulled over walter scott for a broken taillight. the incident came to light after a bystander released his cell phone video of that event. slager's attorney says th's shown on the video. including a fight. slager faces 30 years to life in prison if convicted. two dozen nascar fans are recovering after being injured at the martinsville speedway. virginia state police say after yesterday's race a driver tried to pass another vehicle. that's when the fans were hit. most of the injuries are minor. we understand. police arrested the driver, no word on charges yet. police say alcohol does not appear to have been a factor. >> the united nations children's

11:19 am
enrollment on americans' fears about health care, and health insurance. >> the scariest part of it is just really not knowing where to start to really compare these plans. >> the partnership's website offers advice on how to pick a plan. and professor thorpe suggests you start with a pen and pad. >> because you're going to want to compare across the different plan choices you have. whether your hospital is covered whether your medications are covered much you pay out of pocket. >> some 93% of insured americans are covered through either employer-based health insurance, medicare or medicaid. all of which thorpe says also offer incentives and wellness programs to lower health insurance costs. chris clackham, nbc news. well you notice that i'm sure we're on a weather roller coaster. near 80 yesterday, 60 today. not quite even 60.
