ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic Vice presidential nominee Sen. Tim Kaine told a rally in North Carolina that if Hillary Clinton is elected president "she will not give Donald J. Trump a second thought." His comments come after Trump has said Clinton "has to go to jail," because of the scandal over her email server. Despite the turn away from Trump by some elected Republicans, a Reuters/Ipsos poll of likely voters, released on Tuesday, found 58 percent of Republicans wanted Trump to stay atop their party's ticket and 68 percent said the Republican leadership should stand by him. The poll, which was conducted after the second presidential debate on Sunday, showed Clinton's lead over Trump widening to 8 points from 5 points last week, before the release of the video. House Speaker Paul Ryan, the top Republican in Congress, told party lawmakers on Monday he was breaking with Trump and would not campaign for him, all but conceding Clinton would win the presidency. The move angered some Trump supporters, although Ryan said he would not withdraw his endorsement of the New York businessman.
