ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump laid out on Saturday (October 22) what he would do in the first 100 days of his administration should he win the Nov. 8 election. Trump's outline - which he delivered in a speech in the historic town of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania - covered his plans for boosting Americans' economic and physical security. "First, a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of congress," Trump said. "A hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition, exempting military, public safety and public health," said Trump. "Cancel every unconstitutional executive action, memorandum and order issued by President Obama," Trump said. Trump aides said Gettysburg, the site of a major Civil War battle and Republican President Abraham Lincoln's famous address, was a fitting place for Trump to lay out a positive vision for the future of his party, which has suffered a schism between his supporters and the party's establishment. Trump has planted some new policy details in recent speeches as he seeks to shift attention away from the recent controversies. Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton maintained her commanding lead in the race to win the Electoral College and claim the U.S. presidency, according to the latest Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation project results released on Saturday. In the last week, there has been little movement. Clinton leads Donald Trump in most of the states that Trump would need should he have a chance to win the minimum 270 votes needed to win. According to the project, she has a better than 95 percent chance of winning, if the election was held this week. The mostly likely outcome would be 326 votes for Clinton to 212 for Trump. Trump came off his best debate performance of the campaign Wednesday evening but the polling consensus still showed Clinton winning the third and final face-off on prime-time TV. Trump disputes those findings. And some national polls had the race tightening a wee bit this week though others had Clinton maintaining her solid lead. But the project illustrates that the broader picture remains bleak for Trump with 17 days to go until the Nov. 8 election.
