Transcript for Donald Trump Faces Sinking Poll Numbers
Look forward to that. Thank you. To politics. Donald Trump's campaign feeling the heat with sliding poll Numbers and a litany of controversy comments. Now Hillary Clinton is adding to the pressure releasing her tax returns and calling for trump to do the same. Our Mary Bruce one beat for us, hi, Mary. Hi, good morning. Well, Paula, we've seen this before. Donald Trump makes a provocative accusation, doubles down, digs himself in deeper and later tries to shrug it off. Of course, I'm being sarcastic. This morning Donald Trump is playing the sore chasm card again after repeating this false claim more than 20 times this week. He is the founder in a true sense. I call president Obama and Hillary Clinton the founders of Isis. They're the founders. These are the founders of Isis. These are the founders. Reporter: Even when given the chance to clean things up. You in interthat he created the vacuum, he lost the peace. No, I meant he's the founder of Isis, I do. But he's not sympathetic to them. He hates them, he's trying to kill them. I don't care. He's the founder. Reporter: Now he suggests he was kidding, kind of. Obviously I'm being sarcastic but then not that sarcastic to be honest. Reporter: As his poll Numbers tumbling. Clinton leading in Colorado, Virginia, Florida, even north Carolina. Trump is already warning of potential cheating. The only way we can lose in my Miami, I really peen this, Pennsylvania, is if cheating goes on. Reporter: Clinton is ramping up the pressure on trump to release his tax returns. By releasing more of hers. Showing the Clintons earned more than $10 million last year paying a federal tax rate of more than 34% and she's using trump's own words against him. If you didn't see the tax returns you would think there's almost like something wrong. What's wrong? Now, despite the added pressure still no word on when we will see trump's returns. He has said he will release them but only once an ongoing routine audit is complete. Paula and Ryan. All right, Mary. For more political analysis and some creative analogies which we always look forward to let's bring in the one and only Matt dowd. Good morning to you. We just heard from Mary Bruce. Hillary Clinton just released her tax returns and challenging trump to release his. Will it work and will we finally see those. The short answer is no. This is unprecedented. Two presidential candidates not releasing their taxes, but the problem for Hillary Clinton is they both, Donald Trump and her both have transparency and trust issues in the course of this. As you remember with Hillary Clinton with her Mayes, to me it's a little bit like participants at fat camp calling each other overweight. It doesn't work in this course of thing so they both got trust problems. Love your analogy. Thank you for that. Latest polls show Clinton has a commanding lead. Double-digit leads in Cole aorado and Virginia. Can he recover? Nobody has pulled it out in the course of when you look at the history of the last 60 years of this. The problem for Donald Trump he's behind everywhere. Hillary Clinton has a lead everywhere so in the electoral college doesn't even matter at this point. It's a bit like Katie ledecky in the 800-meter French riviestyle. It doesn't matter what state you're in at this point in time. Double-digit in key states like Virginia and Colorado too. So he's doubling down on those comments president Obama was the founder of Isis saying he's sarcastic. Are you buying it. Are voters? Donald Trump shot himself in the foot, the leg, the arm, the shoulder. He's done all of this to himself in the course of this and full of holes. I think Donald Trump's main argument is don't believe what I say. It's basically a presidential candidate saying don't report what I say because I don't really mean what I say during the course of this. He is in deep trouble. He's got to figure out a way to recover but has to do the one thing he hasn't done which is be disciplined. That's what he has to do. Disciplined and Donald Trump, we'll see how that goes. They're mutually exclusive. Thank you very much, Matt. Appreciate it. By the way a quick reminder, much more on the race for the white house tomorrow morning on "This week" right here on ABC.
