3:06 am
called innuendo and incomplete information, scott. >> nancy cordes on the campaign tonight. now let's go to major garrett covering the trump campaign. >> get out there and vote. pretend we are slightly behind. you got to got out. we don't want to blow this. >> reporter: donald trump its running like an underdog even as new polls show the race in florida is essentially tied. for a second day he warned that a hillary clinton presidency could be mired in congressional investigations. >> if hillary clinton were to be elected, it would create an unprecedented, and protracted constitutional crisis. haven't we just been through a lot with the clintons? right? >> despite the public polling, trump's team believes it surge surged ahead here. it also believes it has drawn

why do protein drinks taste chalky? then get worse? introducing protein shots from 5-hour energy. protein shots from 5-hour energy are smooth and tasty, and still deliver 21 grams of protein with 100 calories. they're great for workouts.
3:10 am
een percent more reps, more laps, more distance, we'll give you your money back - period. tonight we are listening to millenial voters, many of them voting for the first time. clinton has a 28-point lead among them. in a poll by harvard's institute more than half say they're fearful about the future. elaine quijano gathered a group, 18 to 34 from 12 states. they met at the youtube space in new york city for the campaign 2016 series, closing arguments. >> i am a very proud conservative, i don't think donald trump represents the republican party. >> i'm 20 years old. unapologetic, deplorable trump supporter. >> i'm be voting gary johnson. >> i'm 27, i'm with her. >> honestly all i know i'm not

3:12 am
i wonder why do you think that is? >> this particular topic is something that is really dear to my heart. because i was robbed and shot in my head. and if that wasn't enough, i look up and i was staring down the barrel of another gun. and this time it wasn't the barrel of a gun from someone that was trying to rob me. this time looking down the barrel of the police. >> ryan quatrimani, you are the son of a former police officer is that right? >> actually recently retired. i think there are bad police officers. you know there is plenty of corrupt police officers. but i think, obama hasn't done a decent job at helping the african-american communities. i think hillary clinton is part of that. but i do support our police. >> earlier comment about police officers, you know versus the black lives matter, african-american community. one is a choice, you have a choice to be a cop.
3:13 am
that. ain't no choice being black. trump has normalized this talk and put a lot of lives in tan danger. >> to say trump tore our country apart at the seams and created this racial division. no way. president obama was the one in the white house for eight years, race relations have been worse than ever in this country. let's look at who is in office, an african-american man who has torn apart this country. we need to look at that. >> to say that race relations have gotten as bad as they have ever been under president obama shows a lack of historical depth. america is built on racial division. and donald trump's rhetoric, this otherism. builds into that narrative that has long been the narrative of american society. while there were passionate disagreements, one issue united this group. debt. many told me that they can't repay their student loans which means they're putting off decisions like buying a house or starting a family.

3:15 am
blower days or hours after making donations partners receives money matching the amount they gave. >> once the law firm knew we had the record they didn't deny that this was the case. scott allen the globe spotlight editor. >> hundreds and hundreds of a times a lawyer would dough that money to a candidate or political party and almost immediately be given back the same sum. >> that is correct. if you give a donation and somebody else reimburses you for the donation that is a clear violation of the spirit and thee and state levels. >> federal law limits partnerships like the thornton law firm to maximum donation of $2700 per candidate. alleged to have made donations above the limit using a straw donor system using the firm's own money but making it appear it was from individual partners. vivica novak with the center for responsive. >> straw donor reimbursement systems are something both the fec and department of justice take very seriously.
3:16 am
this. >> reporter: the spotlight team looked at donations from three of the firm's partners from 2010 to 214. donating $1.6 million mostly to democrats. over the same period they received back $1.4 million in bonuses. a spokesperson said donations were legal they came out of each partner's ownership stake in the firm. a voluntary program involving the partner's own personal after-tax money. thornton donated to dozens of democrats including some of the most hotly contested senate races. some of the democrats including hillary clinton said they would be returning donations, but scott thornton told us it hired an outside firm to review its political donations and has complied with election law. >> tony dokoupil tonight. tony, thank you. coming up next. tumbling oil prices mean less
