4:35 pm
violent extremists. in the cases that we've charged, we have seen them younger and younger. not only about half of our cases under 26, i think actually maybe a third of them are under 21. >> reporter: skillful use of social media helped isis inspire the deadliest terror attacks on u.s. soil since 9/11. first in san bernardino and then orlando. >> this is a generation that is able to meet and develop relationships entirely online. how do you deal with that. >> reporter: virtually. if you put your finger on in the development of this threat. and we do see younger people, millennials as you indicated. they live online anyway. and certainly isil was taking advantage of that, using the internet and the online virtual world not only to recruit but to pass instructions through. >> reporter: lynch says her successor must prioritize law enforcement cooperation at home and abroad. >> and that's something that i think lives on regardless of

4:37 pm
>> right, while most americans agree that the terrorist threat is still real and serious, the differences are that donald trump supporters are much more in favor of using military force to go against the terrorists wherever possible. hillary clinton supporters say that's part of it but not as large a part of the solution. >> let's just listen to how donald trump links terrorism to immigration. >> we're allowing people to come here and we don't know, do they turn on us? are a small percentage of them bad because if a small percentage is bad that's not acceptable. >> donald trump is seen as being less prepared to be commander in chief based on your numbers, is that changing? >> it is changing. he has made some progress on that measure over the last week or so. >> we ask people, is what is it you want to see in a commander in chief. and even though folks often talk about how much a potential president knows and how much information they have, not everyone is looking for a lot of
4:38 pm
what they're looking for is a president who sets the big picture, whose values take the country in the right direction, especially donald trump's voters. hillary clinton voters by contrast are looking for a president that starts with details and specifics. >> hillary clinton made wave this weekend with something she said at a fundraiser on friday. let's listen to that. >> to just be grossly generalistic, you can put half of trump's supporters into what i call the basket of deplorables. (laughter) right? the racists, sexist, homophobic xenophobic, islamophobic, you name it. >> since then clinton said she regrets saying half but stands by the sentiments. she has been trying to woo donald trump supporters as well. any proof that that is working? >> some of his supporters of what we call reluctant
4:39 pm
he's not doing as wells with republicans as she has been doing with democrats. but we do not see a wholesale movement of republicans over to clinton nor democrats over to trump. >> thanks for walking us through all that new information. our cbs news election director anthony salvanto, reena, back to you. >> ninan: in syria ceasefire is expected to begin monday, part of an agreement between the u.s. and russia who have been fighting on opposite sides of that long and brutal war. as here's jonathan vigliotti. >> reporter: today new rounds of air strikes pounded aleppo, already ravaged by the fire of civil war. more than 100 people were killed across syria in a series of weekend attacks. tomorrow's ceasefire can't come soon enough under the agreement, the u.s., russia and the russia backed assad regime will stop their air strike so humanitarian air can be delivered to

and this is when a lot of the shipping is happening. so this does have the potential effect on the holiday shopping season, certainly black friday. but hopefully we won't get to a point where that becomes a concern. >> reporter: south korean officials are expecting a two to three month delay in some cases but reena, they are enlisting the help of other shipping companies and deploying up to 20 replacement vessels to minimize these delays. >> ninan: mireya thanks, coming up, 9/11 tribute in the nfl in this the first football sunday
