ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION). STORY: Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said he "actually agreed," with Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton's "positive and optimistic view of America," a Town hall debate at Washington University in St. Louis. Trump has faced eroding support from his party over lewd remarks about women. He went into the second presidential debate needing to demonstrate he remains a credible candidate. Clinton has had her own issues to face. Wikileaks on Friday published an email from Clinton advisers appearing to contain excerpts of paid speeches to corporations, in which Clinton voices support for open trade and borders and says how sometimes it is important to have a public and private position. At the first debate, on Sept. 26, Trump was repeatedly put on the defensive by Clinton. He never let her accusations go unanswered, and as a result he missed opportunities to use his speaking time to draw attention to Clinton's perceived weaknesses. A Reuters-Ipsos poll had Clinton leading by five points on Friday, before the video surfaced. Now, the question is whether Trump's quest for the presidency is all but over. =========== Trump shares Clinton's "positive view" of America Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said he "actually agreed," with Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton''s "positive and optimistic view of America."
