Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton seeks to allay concerns of voters who still have questions about her saying, ''I get that.'' Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Story: Democratic U.S. presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Monday appealed to opponents of Republican rival Donald Trump, telling supporters in Philadelphia that the election is not a reality TV show. At a rally at Temple University, she said, that she realizes that many voters who don't support Trump also have concerns about voting for her, and added, "I get that." But she said she was comfortable with the fact that she was not as good a showman as Trump, and promised to work hard to improve lower student debt and tuition rates. Clinton's comments come as Trump has surged in polling in battleground states. Senior Clinton aides said they always expected the race to the Nov. 8 election to be close. But it was clear from a raft of new polls that Trump had halted a summer swoon after taking steps to give a less freewheeling, more polished performance on the stump.
