decades ago. >> did he actually kiss you? >> yeah. yeah. >> on the face? on the lips? >> all -- wherever he could find a landing spot. yes. >> another ridiculous tale. no witnesses, no nothing. >> reporter: jessica leeds first shared her story with the "new york times." >> these attacks are orchestrated by the clintons and their media allies. >> why in the world he would blame the clintons for it is but that's his wall of protection. he is -- this is how he is coping with the fact that he's completely rejecting the reality. >> reporter: "the new york times" is rejecting trump's demand they retract their article. in a statement, all but daring trump to take them to court, "nothing in our article has had the slightest effect on the reputation that mr. trump, through his own words and actions, has already created for

7:08 am
you belong to. no woman deserves to be treated this way. none of us deserves this kind of abuse. >> reporter: vice president biden punctuating the point in this new interview for "meet the press." >> this guy, as i said, has acknowledged that he has been a sexual predator. he's acknowledged that he's abused his power. the textbook definition of what constitutes sexual assault. >> repor h also attacking trump while fund-raising in california. >> the whole world has heard trump brag about how he mistreats women and the disturbing stories just keep coming. it makes you want to turn off the news. >> reporter: meanwhile, clinton's campaign is fending off new criticism after wikileaks latest release of hacked e-mails which have not been authenticated by the campaign or nbc news. in one e-mail a collin spokesman, in august 2015, urges
7:09 am
ever sent classified material through a private e-mail server, writing, our "our portion is that no such material exists. else it could be said she mishandled classified info." clinton now looking to lighten the mood with ellen degeneres. >> clearly the winner of the debate was the guy in the red sweater. ken bone. >> we need sometimes. google trends' data shows online searches for the terms "write-in" actually spiked last week more than 2,800%. the highest point since 2004. a lot of americans still unsatisfied with a lot of their options. coming up, we'll have more from chuck todd's exclusive interview with vice president biden, including what he says about former president bill clinton. >> peter alexander, thank you. let's turn to steve kornacki and nicolle wallace.
7:10 am
clinton with a seven-point lead nationally. if you are the democrats, if you are the clinton ticket right now, you are probably feeling pretty good. on the other hand, steve, it is true that she is continuing to be a very unpopular candidate. if people think, well, this race is over, trump's not going to win, do the democrats have to worry about people who would otherwise come in and cast a vote saying forget it, i don't have to, and this becomes a much tighter race? >> i think it is always a good idea to worry in a campaign that's been as unpredictable as this one. the position the democrats are in right now has changed. position hillary clinton is in has changed significantly since last week for two reasons. it is a wider gap than we've been seeing. she was ahead last week, now she is significantly ahead in this race. the question of all the negatives around donald trump in the last week has that imposed a ceiling on him. if you are a democrat, if this thing gets tighter, you just have to start worrying about whether turnout will catch you in the end. but this is a significant change since last week.
7:11 am
i'm asking michelle obama to clear her schedule for the next three weeks because she resonates. she connects with an audience. but it seems like a double-edged sword because she does it so easily in ways that hillary clinton, the candidate, can't. >> let me first say, i don't know and never before has there been an example of someone's advocacy transferring to somebody else. what michelle obama did yesterday was perfection in that it was the perfect message delivered by the perfect messenger, at the perfect moment. she spoke truth in a climate where just aboutry actually call out what it is that we're seeing which is textbook misogyny. >> meanwhile, you see donald trump and he's on offense big time. he's going after his detractors in the press. he's going after the accusers saying that they're lying. is that the right approach? does he have any other option at this point? >> is it right? who knows? i think that the biggest mistake donald trump has made -- if you want to give him the most generous odds and say that enthusiasm could, you know, fall
7:12 am
clinton. his best message is not this stuff. his best sort of basket of messages and his ability to connect was around economic isolationism. it was around trade protectionism. it was around foreign policy isolationism. it was around this idea that we would build a wall. that's what won him the nomination. >> what are you saying? you think he should have just denied it and move on to other subjects? >> he hasn't talked about the things that won him the nomination in weeks and weeks and weeks. so his campaign message in the burn. but what won him the nomination, what rallied more republicans to his cause than any of his 16 opponents was a message about economic isolationism and economic restoration. not this stuff. >> steve, what's going to win one of these two, the presidency, is what happens in four key battleground state states. why don't you go to the board and show us how it is going. >> we've got new polling numbers. nbc news/"wall street journal" polls. the key here -- these were
7:13 am
they get the tape, they get the debate. starting in ohio, a state obviously president obama carried four years ago. donald trump ahead right now after the debate, very small margin, is ahead by a point. that's not a huge lead but this is a state trump absolutely needs. let's say donald trump was able to get ohio. we also have a new poll to show you in north carolina. the significance here, this was a romney state four years ago. this is supposed to be part of the republican base. look at that. hillary clinton after that debate opening up a four-point we've seen several polls in north carolina that show this. here's the key. if hillary clinton is able to flip north carolina, look what that does to the race to 270. she's over 270. this is a show-stopper state for hillary clinton. even then, if donald trump were to win everything else on the map, it is a tossup right now. look at that. he'd still be shy of 270, even given that district in maine. he would need something else. one of the states the trump people say they can flip,
7:14 am
resources there. but look at this -- 51%-42%. again, after the debate in pennsylvania. a huge gap donald trump is facing there. he is at a significant disadvantage at this point. >> he can't lose any of the states that romney won. >> he has got to find a way to win north carolina. that's the first thing. he's got about three steps after that. but lose carolina if you are trump, you've lost the election. >> steve, thank you so much. indiana governor mike pence is going to be right here his take on the race and the latest controversies surrounding the campaigns. united airlines suffered a problem with its computer systems overnight that caused widespread delays. early this morning passengers went on social media to complain about delays as long as six hours. still unclear, just how many flights were affected by 3:00 a.m., united officials announced the problem had been fixed and delayed flights were resuming. some airlines are now taking

7:17 am
hurricane nicole did to bermuda. >> bizarre situation. but first to the pacific northwest. along the coast of oregon we had wind gusts over 100 miles per hour. but judging by the palm trees there, i think that was bermuda first. we did see wind gusts up near 119 miles per hour, the storm came very, very close to bermuda, although never officially made landfall but the infrastructure is so out there, we didn't see a whole lot of damage. though there was some isolated power outage. winds were up around 120 miles per hour. we are still looking at the storm system making its way just continuing to move to the north and east. it is no longer a threat to bermuda. but we have a second threat for the pacific northwest. again, wind gusts were up around 100 miles per hour along the coast. a stronger storm is going to move in this weekend. on saturday, we are looking at
7:18 am
miles per hour. this is the rain we've seen in the last 12 hours. two to four inches of rain with even isolated higher amounts up around six inches. because of all the wind we are expecting with 80 to 100-mile-per-hour wind gusts, even for areas farther inland, we do have hurricane force warnings along the coast. we have high-wind warnings, high-wind watches. we could see a storm surge and significant power outages are possible especially as we go into saturday night and through sunday. that's something we really have

8:02 am
happy birthday to my husband, mike. >> happy birthday. >> we love you. all these people out here clapping for you. >> secondly, because we have kings of leon. >> carson is the guy we turn to on music. you've been looking forward to this one. >> one of my favorite bands. the charming sounds out of nashville and new york city. a new record out which i think is some of the best record i think they've done. they've won grammys, they this is a real treat for us to have such a great, great rock band. we'll get to them in our next half-hour. but first, let's take a look at your "news at 8." we begin with the race for the white house. i'm peter alexander in washington. our new battleground state poll shows hillary clinton up four points in north carolina, that's a must-win state for donald trump. he will campaign there today. but now take a look at ohio where it is basically
8:03 am
advantage. >> mr. donald j. trump. >> reporter: this morning, donald trump trying to get back on message. >> every day between now around the election, we are going to talk about our plans to make america great again. >> reporter: back to bashing hillary clinton. >> she should be locked up. >> reporter: no hint thursday night that his campaign is reeling from an onslaught of allegations from multiple women accusing trump of badly. jessica leeds offering new details on cnn about an alleged incident on a plane 35 years ago when she says trump groped her. >> i was wearing a skirt and his hand started going toward my knee and up my skirt. >> reporter: earlier thursday trump called his accusers' allegations preposterous and ludicrous. nbc news cannot independently confirm any of the accusers' claims. >> these claims are all fabricated. they're pure fiction and they're
8:04 am
attending a fund-raiser in san francisco took a swing at the republican nominee. >> the whole world has heard trump brag about how he mistreats women and the disturbing stories just keep coming. it makes you want to turn off the news. >> reporter: the clinton campaign also rolled out the first couple. the president blasting trump for saying things -- >> no decent person would even think, much less say, much less brag about, much less l about, or joke about, much less act on. >> reporter: echoed by michelle obama. >> and i can't believe that i'm saying that a candidate for president of the united states has bragged about sexually assaulting women. >> hillary is only for one woman and that's herself. >> reporter: on fox news, three women who have for years accused bill clinton of sexually assaulting them, accusations long denied by the former president. trump with a dire message to the faithful thursday night.
8:05 am
or we lose our country. >> reporter: a different view from clinton. >> in 26 days, donald trump will stop being on the news every single day. [ cheers ] >> right now donald trump faces a significant deficit nationally. seven points according to a brand-new fox news poll. but perhaps more striking, two-thirds of those questioned say clinton is qualified to be president, while 56% say trump is not 49% saying trump's not qualified at all. matt and savannah? >> peter, thank you very much. we are joining now by donald trump's running mate, indiana governor, mike pence. governor, good to see you. >> good morning. >> one week ago today we heard donald trump in his own words brag about making unwanted sexual advances on women. now we have six women who have come forward saying in fact that was more than bragging. he did those things to them. you've heard what they've had to say.
8:06 am
>> well, let me say first and foremost, i think donald trump, particularly sunday night, and over the weekend, showed his heart to the american people. he apologized, said he was embarrassed for words that he had used 11 years ago. and i think that was right. >> i want to take us past that and go to what these women are claiming. do you believe them? >> well, what i would say is these are unsubstantiated allegations. i think the reality is that categorically denied that these things ever happened. and i believe him. we've talked about it privately. i heard him publicly. what we're going to do in this campaign is not allow the other side to change the subject to slanders and lies. we are going to continue to focus on the issues that really matter most to the american people. i think the reason why you saw 19,000 people come out for donald trump last night in cincinnati, ohio is because american people know this country is in a lot of trouble.
8:07 am
world stage again -- >> americans deserve that conversation, but these are serious allegations. let me just ask you. because you just said a minute ago. he has denied these allegations and you believe him. he has also made another statement. he has said that he likes to grab women by the genitals. that he'll just go right up and kiss them. so those are two different statements that donald trump has made. you choose to believe one of them where he denies the allegation. why not take him at his word the words that we hear and that are on tape and believe him? >> savannah, you know i expressed myself on that over this weekend. the concerns i had about those statements. i think he was right to say that he was embarrassed about that, that he was in a private conversation and that -- >> but you don't believe he does the things he says he does. >> he said very clearly that it was just talk, that he regrets what he said 11 years ago. but these unsubstantiated
8:08 am
frankly, are very similar to what "the new york times" published six months ago and was widely discredited by the same reporters. i would say as a dad of two daughters, a is a public person, you always take these issues seriously. but these are unsubstantiated claims. donald trump has categorically denied them and we'll work hard to continue to focus this campaign on the issues in the next 25 days that are about a stronger and more prosperous america. >> but he has said he has substantial evidence to prove that what these women are saying is wrong. if there is a time to come up and show us that evidence, this is the time. has he shown you that evidence? >> matt, i think it is coming, and it is coming in, frankly, probably a matter of hours. i know that melania trump, through her attorneys, has already reached out to one of the publications, "people" magazine, to call for a retraction. >> that's different than showing
8:09 am
forward. but donald trump has made very clear that he's categorically denied these allegations. yet he can't be more definitive than that. and the difficulty is that at this point in a campaign, it is astonishing to see, with all due respect, astonishing to see the enormous coverage of these really unfounded allegations, unestablished allegations, compared to an avalanche of clinton's years as secretary of state. we found out this week through one e-mail that despite the fact that she said there was never a decision made of the state department when she was secretary of state to benefit their supporters or their donors, that there is now an e-mail that shows that in the haitian recovery effort after the earthquake, that -- that -- that the state department was directed to remember businesses that were friends of the clintons. that's exactly the kind of pay
8:10 am
never happened, and now we see hard evidence, not unsubstantiated allegations -- >> we have covered that story and with respect, if she were here or tim kaine were here, we'd be asking her. you're answerable to your campaign, they're answerable to your campaign. there have been talk about the accusers in bill clinton's past, sometimes by you. voters are trying to figure this out and it is really difficult. you have claims on all sides. do you think in the donald trump accusers and the bill clinton accusers, who we saw at the debate the other night that donald trump brought, do you think they're all entitled to the same presumption of believability? that they're telling the truth. all of them. >> i think we should always take these kind of allegations seriously and respectfully. but in the case of bill clinton, bill clinton actually admitted to being involved with a 23-year-old intern at the white house named monica lewinsky when
8:11 am
bill clinton actually paid a settlement of over $800,000 to one of those women. >> donald trump has paid settlements. >> the claims against bill clinton now for decades have been quite well chronicled in books and in history. they've been quite well substantiated. and, frankly, those women have gotten scant attention this year or in previous years from many in the mainstream media. so my view is that those claims have largely been established through the record of that -- but the people need to know that these unsubstantiated allegations have been completely denied by donald trump and we're simly not going to allow this campaign to be drawn off to defending slander and lies. we're going to focus on things that will make america great again. >> let me compliment you. everybody says you are a really good guy. you are a really intelligent guy. you're a guy of faith. you have said that you're a christian first, a conservative next, and a republican last. >> in that order. >> and yet there are some people
8:12 am
fact that you say you believe him and you don't really believe these women and they're wondering if you aren't putting your loyalty to the republican party and to this man, donald trump, ahead of your faith and your gut and your heart. how would you answer that? >> i would answer it first and foremost that part of my faith is i believe in forgiveness. when donald trump apologized this weekend to the american people. i believe in extending grace and i think millions of americans do as but let me be very clear that in this case, i think it is very important -- as i said, as a dad of two daughters and as a public person, that you take allegations of this nature seriously. but it is important to establish that these are, you know, unsubstantiated allegations. and, frankly, there will be more information that comes out on these things. donald trump has made it very clear that he is -- he has
8:13 am
truly do believe that this looks more and more like the kind of thing that comings up in campaigns, the kind of accusations that fly in the final weeks of a campaign when at the end of the day, the 19,000 people that came out in cincinnati, ohio last night, the thousands of people that will be out at our rallies over the course of this weekend, they know that this country is in a lot of trouble. we have iranian warships moving now alongside the br yemen. we have missiles being fired from yemeni militia that were provided by the iranians at u.s. warships. we have radical islamic terrorism. two police officers shot in boston. we have an economy that is struggling and failing millions of americans. >> can we go back to this issue of faith? >> that change only comes if we elect donald trump as president of the united states. >> i wanted to just end on a grace note, and this issue of faith. because, frankly, at my church,
8:14 am
and we hear about message of forgiveness and mercy and grace. would you agree that that forgiveness -- the same measure of grace and forgiveness that many people are willing to extend to donald trump, that as christians, people should also extend that to hillary clinton or to bill clinton? i mean what would it look like? what would this campaign look like if all of that grace were applied equally? >> well, i think it is a wonderful question. but in the case of hillary clinton, with what we're seeing in these e-mails different hillary clinton behind closed doors than we've seen in public. and we've heard no apology for that. when she advocated for open borders at a speech in brazil, when she advocated for socialized medicine at a speech in canada, and now when we hear that they were directing contracts in the haitian recovery effort to friends of the clintons, all we get is silence, all we get is denials. so the beginning of grace is an
8:15 am
waiting for hillary clinton to apologize for being a different person in private than she is in public. >> with all due respect though -- >> donald trump and i are going -- >> -- what these women are claiming about donald trump is he is a very different person in private than he is in public as well. >> i understand that. let's be very clear, he's categorically denied these allegations. these are unsubstantiated allegations, matt. there will be more information that comes out on these in the hours and in the days ahead. but i promise you, this campaign is going to continue to stay the issues that matter most to the american people. security, prosperity, the supreme court, and i think that's why you're going to continue to see tremendous momentum evidenced in these incredible crowds driving toward november the 8th. >> you are always generous with your time. we appreciate you coming by, governor. thank you. just ahead, hoda is going to be here. she's going to pull off another great surprise for a deserving

9:34 am
then i made the switch. xarelto? significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem. it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto? is selective targeting one critical factor of your body's natural clotting function. for people with afib currently well managed on warfarin, there is limited information on how xarelto and warfarin compare in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve
9:35 am
before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke, ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know. xarelto. crisp garden vegetables. no artificial flavors. philadelphia? garden vegetable. rich, creamy... ...and delicious
