ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. President Barack Obama spoke at a campaign rally for Hillary Clinton on Tuesday (October 11), where he smelled his hand to make a point. "And there is only one candidate in this race who understands in a big diverse country doesn't work if you constantly demonize each other. And I mean that literally by the way. I was reading the other that there is a guy on the radio who apparently Trump's on his show frequently, he said that me and Hillary are demons. Said we smell like sulfur. Ain't that something? (Smells hand) Now come on people," said Obama. Polls show that Trump has fallen further behind Clinton since the release of the recording and now trails her by 8 points among likely voters, according to a new Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll, with 1 in 5 Republicans saying his vulgar comments about groping women disqualify him from the presidency.
