ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump was heckled at a campaign rally at the Sarasota, Florida Fairgrounds on Saturday (November 28). "Nicely escort the person out, very nicely," Trump repeatedly told security on scene. "You see how diplomatic I've become?" Trump asked the crowd of supporters. "Because at the last rally, we had one person, we had 15,000 people, we had one person who was really, really being bad. And it was horrible, it was horrible. And we said 'get 'em out, get 'em out'. We were a little bit rough, and I got criticized. So today, you're my witness, could I have been nicer than that?," he said. The billionaire's support among Republican voters has dropped 12 points in less than a week, marking the real estate mogul's biggest decline since he vaulted to the top of the field in July, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll. Trump was the favorite of 31 percent of Republicans in a rolling poll in the five days ending on Nov. 27. That was down from a peak of 43 percent registered on Nov. 22. The dip follows criticism of Trump for comments he made in the aftermath of the Nov. 13 Paris attacks that killed 130 people and wounded hundreds more.
