ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton continued to focus on revelations about Republican rival Donald Trump's business record, telling reporters "I think what we are finding out is deeply troubling." A New York Times report Sunday showed that Trump took an almost $1 billion loss in 1995 that may have allowed him to avoid paying federal income taxes for up to 18 years. In a wide ranging session with reporters Clinton also said she is "feeling very good" about winning support from both Republicans and Independent voters. She also said she was optimistic about the upcoming Vice Presidential debate when Democrat Tim Kaine will face Republican Mike Pence. She said she thinks Pence "has a huge burden defending both his own record and the record of Donald Trump, and we will see how well he can do that." She also dismissed concerns about comments made earlier by her husband former President bill Clinton who had outlined concerns about the Affordable Care Act saying "I think he made it clear what he said," Speaking at a rally in Flint Michigan President Clinton called it "crazy where all of a sudden 25 million more people have health care and then the people who are out there busting it, sometimes 60 hours a week, wind up with their premiums doubled and their coverage cut in half. It's the craziest thing in the world." . The U.S. presidential race tightened in a number of traditional battleground states, though Clinton remained the favorite to win the White House, according to the latest Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation project poll released on Monday. The project, which uses a national online opinion poll of more than 15,000 people, showed that, as of Thursday, Clinton and Trump were running nearly even in support in Florida and Ohio: states where she had held an advantage. Arizona, where Trump had held an advantage, was also considered a toss-up. Meanwhile, Maine, Oregon and Pennsylvania were considered states that Clinton would likely win. They had previously been considered toss-ups. Overall, the project showed that Clinton continued to hold the advantage over Trump in the Electoral College, the body that ultimately picks the president.
