ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton campaigns with First Lady Michelle Obama in Salem, North Carolina on Thursday (October 27). "She has more experience and exposure to the presidency than any candidate in our lifetime. Yes, more than Barack, more than Bill. So she is absolutely ready to be commander-in-chief on day one, and yes, she happens to be a woman," said First Lady Michelle Obama. "If Hillary doesn't win this election that will be on us... so when you hear folks talking about a global conspiracy and saying this election is rigged, understand that they are trying to get you to stay home," Obama said. Clinton warned her supporters on Tuesday against complacency as opinion polls show her holding a clear lead over Republican rival Donald Trump with exactly two weeks left until the Nov. 8 election. Trump says the election is rigged against him. An average of national polls on the RealClearPolitics website since mid-October gives Clinton a lead of more than five percentage points, as Trump fights off accusations that he groped women and faces heavy criticism for suggesting he might not accept the result of the election if he loses.
