5:07 pm
today showing hillary clinton with a solid lead over donald trump 28 days away from this election. has the trump campaign run out of time? >> nearly. it's at a position now where it would take it's approaching miracle status to win this thing. he'd have to have a tremendous third debate and some things would have to happen in the interim to really change things. as we've talked about a lot it's not about the national polling. i don't look at those necessarily. they are an cater. but when you look at the swing states hillary clinton is doing very, very well and that is going to be the difference. >> one thing that surprised me about the debate last night i was just thinking donald trump was going to come out they would ask him the first question and he would say you know what before i answer that question i just wants to talk about that tape. i want to sincerely apologize not a apology but an honest heartfelt apology. >> not who he is. he went to the locker room banter excuse and then immediately and it was all

5:09 pm
in her public appearances. can that weigh on her at all moving forward? >> had the tapes not surfaced there would have been a huge problem for her. because it shows duplicity it shows a double standard one public standard and a private standard. it shows that she talked one way to international bankers and a different way to american bankers and the american public. it won't matter now because this tape has a life of its own. the trump tape, and others that may follow and that's going to be the story that's going to keep pounding away at this. so he missed his opportunity from that standpoint. >> however julian assange from wixey leaks has said more tapes more documents are going to be released. do you think that that will have an affect at all? >> the october surprise was the trump tape. everybody was waiting around for the october surprise to be all these wixey leaks wixey leaks leaks.

they are damaging if they come without this other tape. that race would have robles stayed at 3 or 4 points. but now it's expanding. it's a different race now. >> we have about 9 days october 19th third and final debate in las vegas. what are you expecting out of that. >> more of the same. i think they are going to go at it. these candidates don't like each other they have plenty of material on each other. i don't think it does the body politic any good to have to watch there it's discouraging. >> i wanted to say that was the same feeling i had. the first especially 45 minutes i just was so disappointed. just felt like watching two kids saying well you did this, yeah but you did this. it just made me think in all honesty what has happened to us? >> well one of the things that's happened to us frank is this thing. social media has changed the way that we're doing things. the instantaneous response to things without really thinking about what we're saying laugh the time. i think it's just brought something to the body politic that may not be the best for
5:11 pm
it. and that is it lacks contemplation. >> well we have more to come. >> oh, yes. >> thank you. >> you're very welcome. >> voters who have registered to vote by mail should have their ballots soon. absentee ballots went in the mail today. also in many counties across the state including alameda county early voting got underway. that means if you've registered toto vote you can go to the recommending star's office between now and election day and cast your ballot. early voting in san francisco begins tomorrow. it's certainly good news for tesla, but it may be even better for the city of fremont. the latest from the luxury electric carmaker. they have been here before but it's an elimination game for the san francisco giants. i'm tracking the forecast. it brings rain back to the bay area as we head towards the end of this week. give you the details. ou the details.
