good monday morning, everyone. hillary clinton starting this new week riding high as in the polls as the race for the white house heads into the final two-week stretch. >> donald trump is now trailing clinton by 12 points, dragged down by broad disapproval. but trump is coming out swinging, repeating claims that the system is rigged. angelica spanos is here with the latest. angelica, good morning. >> reporter: kendis, diane, good morning to you guys. with little time left to campaign, donald trump's team is acknowledging he's down in the polls. so he's hunkering down in florida. one of the swing states that polls show is still competitive. meanwhile, hillary clinton spent sunday in north carolina, which she hopes to have in her column come election day. in a race against time and still fighting accusations of sexual misconduct, donald trump is looking forward in the must-win state of florida. where he believes he's doing better among female voters than
4:02 am
with male voters. >> i'll tell you what, we're doing well in the polls. but you know, i really think those polls are very inaccurate when it comes to women. i think we're doing better with women than with men, frankly. >> reporter: newly confident, hillary clinton taking her campaign to church in north carolina. >> we gotta actually start interacting again with people we don't agree with. i do that all the time.

4:03 am
as has ever run for the presidency, hillary rodham clinton. >> reporter: and that new poll shows clinton with a 20-point advantage with women. and a three-point edge with men. a group that's typically tilted toward trump for most of the race until now. back to you. >> for the first time, the trump campaigned admitting they're behind. angelica, thank you. and an abc news poll shows more trouble in those numbers for donald trump. 59% don't believe the vote is rigged. he's losing dramatically among nonwhites. but even among white voters, he's just four points ahead, 47-43, which is within the margin of error. and there's a bit of good news for trump. he picked up a major endorsement from nevada's largest newspaper. in backing trump, "the las vegas review journal" says he doesn't represent the danger his critics claim. the editorial board describes trump as flawed, but nonetheless preferable to hillary clinton. and taking a look at where the candidates will be today, trump travels through florida with stops in st. augustine and
