ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said, "Our country is a total mess," as he made his case for becoming the next president and said Democratic rival Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama "unleashed ISIS." Trump repeated "that it is a rigged system," as he said, "Hillary brought death and disaster to Iraq, Syria, Libya, she empowered Iran and she unleashed ISIS across the world, that's what she did through incompetence through gross incompetence, she and Obama unleashed ISIS," Trump said. The two candidates are now tied in Florida and North Carolina, and Clinton's lead in Michigan has narrowed so much that the state is too close to call. Ohio remains a dead heat and Pennsylvania is now tilting to Clinton. Clinton is still the favorite to win Tuesday's election, but Trump now has a plausible route to victory, especially if there is a sharp fall in turnout among African-Americans from the levels of the 2012 election.
