ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic vice vresidential candidate Sen. Tim Kaine made his pitch for presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, asking supporters in Greensboro, North Carolina, whether they want a "You're hired President or a 'You're Fired" President. Kaine was highlighting Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump's signature line in his reality TV show the Apprentice. Kaine also called on Trump to release his tax returns. "Does anybody in this room think there may be something a little bit funny in those tax returns?" Clinton extended her lead over Trump to eight percentage points, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Tuesday, from six points on Friday. The bump for Clinton followed the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia last week at which Clinton and her supporters painted an optimistic portrait of America, and came amid controversy over Trump's comments about the parents of a slain Muslim U.S. soldier. About 43 percent of likely voters favor Clinton, 35 percent favor Trump, and 9 percent picked "Other," according to the July 28-Aug. 1 online poll of 1,289 likely voters. The poll had a credibility interval of 3 percentage points.
