Transcript for Clinton Gaining Momentum in Battleground States
Let's talk to Matthew dowd about all of this. We know the Clinton campaign now going big into Arizona, making some kind of a play in Indiana and Missouri. As well. So the question, is this smart politics or overconfidence? I think it's a little of both. I think it's fairly smart to force your opponent playing on her opponent's side of the feel and the clock is on her side. The clock is running out. She has a lead but it is demonstrating a little bit ofover confidence because she has not put away Ohio and has not fully put away north Carolina and has not put away Florida so has to protect those states because she wants to win one of those states but I think she has a real estate of carrying Arizona. Even though she doesn't need one of those three big states she wants it for security going for the 270. Tomorrow night, final presidential debate and a little of what each has to do. Donald Trump, we have seen what he's doing. He's going to try to provoke a mistake. She has almost wrapped this race up. She has a huge national lead. A lead in almost every state. He has to win but he can't just have a bare victory but a big victory and hope for some reason at that debate she does something that all of us are going to be talking about for the three days following. The danger for her would be sort of overcautiousness. Well, I think she's going to go in and knows that running out the clock is what she needs to do. If she goes in like she did in the first debate and second debate and does well, she's going to win this race. Okay, Matthew dowd, thanks very much. You can see the final presidential debate tomorrow night right here on ABC. I'll be anchoring our live coverage with our whole political team at 9:00 eastern. All right, George.
