ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton says she has "met people who were destroyed by Donald Trump" during a campaign stop at the Mojave Electric Company in Las Vegas on Thursday (August 4). Clinton responded to a reporter's question, in regards to Trump saying he makes so many of his products overseas because of the poor U.S., market. "When you run for president, you need to be judged on what you have done. And I think the evidence is pretty clear. Everything he's made, he's made somewhere else. He's not put Americans to work. He's imported foreign workers instead of hiring Americans at his country clubs and his resorts. He has cheated contractors." Clinton said. Supporters of Republican Donald Trump urged him to get back on message on Thursday after a week of dropping opinion poll numbers and a war of words with ranking Republicans over his U.S. presidential campaign. Trump's rough patch has contributed to a dip in support in some battleground states. A WBUR/MassINC poll in New Hampshire showed Clinton leading Trump, 47 percent to 32 percent. Other polls showed Trump down 11 percentage points to Clinton in Pennsylvania and 6 percentage points in Florida, two states that are important to his chances of winning the election.
