Trump's wild misrepresentation of Obama's response to a protester

Earlier Saturday in Pembroke Pines, in Florida's Broward County, Clinton made her final in-person pitch to voters in the Sunshine State.
Fifty-three percent of Florida voters say that Clinton is 'part of what's wrong with politics in today, ' which only 36 percent use to describe Trump.
If Trump falls short in Pennsylvania, his chances become slimmer and he would need to win North Carolina, where the candidates are virtually tied in the latest polls; Arizona, where the Hispanic vote could swing the election in Clinton's favor; and ME, which carries little weight but could be key in this year's contest.
The Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation project shows races in Florida, North Carolina and MI have tilted away from Clinton over the past week and are now considered too close to call. Even in the Democratic stronghold state of California, a statewide poll released Tuesday by Southern California News Group and KABC/7 found Clinton was down 5 points across the state as her support from independents dropped from 25 percent to 9 percent. Mook said that group represents one in four voters it has turned out in Iowa so far. In a head-to-head matchup, Clinton and Trump both stand at 46 percent.
CBS gave Trump a one point lead in OH (46 to 45 per cent) and showed a tied race in Florida (45 to 45 per cent).
The Fox poll of 1,107 likely voters was fielded November 1 to November 3 and has a sampling error of 3 percentage points. Clinton now holds a 10-point lead among women; Barack Obama won women by 11 points.
Two days before Election Day, new polls out Sunday show an extremely tight race nationally and in toss-up swing states. Another 3 percent of polls show a tied race.
Obama also hit Trump, saying, "We can't have a president who every day seems to violate those basic values". Still, her overall lead in state-level polls continues to bode well for her chances of winning the election. John McCain, who led in 11 percent, in 2008. However, supporters of the Libertarian and Green Parties generally switch to the Republican or Democratic nominee that best represents their views. Clinton is more popular with both.
In Clinton's case, 55% of her likely voter base said that they would be "mainly supporting Clinton" when they cast their ballots. A 10-point increase in Hispanic turnout would go a long way toward offsetting a 10-point decrease in black turnout, according to the project. She has also regained the lead in Pennsylvania and is leading in Nevada.
