Can Clinton, Trump Sway Last-Minute Undecided Voters?


With the election fast approaching, the presidential candidates are busy wooing voters in key battleground states.

Republican Donald Trump is campaigning Thursday in Ohio, while first lady Michelle Obama joins Democrat Hillary Clinton in North Carolina.

Each candidate is trying to appeal to Americans who don't traditionally vote for their party.

Stumping in Charlotte, North Carolina, Trump reached out to black Americans, saying that, "Every African-American citizen in this country is entitled to a government that puts their jobs, wages and security first."

He asked them for the "honor" of their votes and the "privilege to represent" them as their president.

In Florida, Clinton made an appeal to all voters, saying Americans are coming together at the end of this election season.

"And not just Democrats, but Republicans and independents," she insisted. "And I want to thank all the Republicans and independents who are here today who are part of making our country better for everyone."

Meanwhile, the latest release of leaked emails could mean more trouble for Clinton. One from WikiLeaks shows Clinton aides expressing concern over the growing controversy.

"Why didn't they get this stuff out like 18 months ago?" wrote Center for American Progress President Neera Tanden, a longtime confidant of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta. "I guess I know the answer. They wanted to get away with it."

Podesta replied, "Most of that has to do with terrible decisions made pre-campaign, but a lot has to do with her instincts."

"Almost no one knows better than me that her instincts can be terrible," Tanden acknowledged.

Clinton, for her part, refuses to comment on the WikiLeaks emails. Meanwhile, Trump is still taking digs at his Democratic rival over the news that Obamacare is facing huge double-digit price hikes next year.

"Real change begins with immediately repealing and replacing the disaster known as Obamacare, and Hillary wants to double up and triple up. What a disgusting situation!" he told supporters in Kinston, North Carolina.

"Job-killing Obamacare is just one more way the system is rigged," he added. "If we win on November 8, we are going to Washington, D.C., to drain the swamp."
