ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton took aim at Republican candidate Donald Trumps' foreign policy calling it "reckless" and possibly "dangerous." "I have to tell you how concerned I am with what I hear Trump saying," Clinton said at a campaign event in New Jersey. "I have said he is a loose canon. What do I mean by that? Well, I think calling for more countries to get nuclear weapons, which is the last thing we need ..that's a loose canon," she said. "I think advocating torture, that's a loose canon," she said. "You go down the list and you got a really reckless, even dangerous agenda that he is promoting." She said "there is a lot of concern around the world about his candidacy. Clinton's comments come as Trump pulled even with Clinton in a Reuters/Ipsos opinion poll released on Wednesday, in a dramatic early sign that the Nov. 8 presidential election might be more hotly contested than first thought. After weeks of trailing Clinton in head-to-head polls, the billionaire businessman's numbers jumped after he effectively won the Republican nomination last week when his two remaining rivals quit, according to the online survey. The national poll found 41 percent of likely voters supporting Clinton and 40 percent backing Trump, with 19 percent undecided. The survey of 1,289 people was conducted over five days and has a credibility interval of 3 percentage points. The narrowing poll numbers are the result of both a gain by Trump and a drop by Clinton as she tries to overcome Democratic rival U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders.
