ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION). Former U.S. president Bill Clinton raised questions about Republican Donald Trump's slogan, "Make America Great Again" while campaigning for his wife, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton in Ohio. "I know what 'make America great again,' means. I grew up in the base of HIllary's opponent...America wasn't so great 50 years ago for African-Americans, for Latinos, for first-generation immigrants, for women in the workplace," he said. During the speech, Clinton focused on the plans his wife has for the country, ignoring a new email controversy that has erupted. On Friday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced that it is examining newly discovered emails belonging to Clinton's close aide, Huma Abedin. Those emails were found on a computer belonging to Anthony Weiner, Abedin's estranged husband, during an unrelated investigation into illicit messages he is alleged to have sent to a teenage girl. The latest polls show Clinton leads Trump by 15 percentage points among early voters surveyed in the past two weeks, according to the Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation project. Though data is not available for all early voting states, Clinton enjoys an edge in swing states such as Ohio and Arizona and in Republican Party strongholds such as Georgia and Texas. An estimated 19 million Americans have voted so far in the election, according to the University of Florida's United States Election Project, accounting for as much as 20 percent of the electorate.
