ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION). Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton went after one another on Sunday, where Trump interrupted Clinton several times to bring up her private e-mail server. Trump has faced eroding support from his party over lewd remarks about women. He went into the second presidential debate needing to demonstrate he remains a credible candidate. Clinton has had her own issues to face. Wikileaks on Friday published an email from Clinton advisers appearing to contain excerpts of paid speeches to corporations, in which Clinton voices support for open trade and borders and says how sometimes it is important to have a public and private position. At the first debate, on Sept. 26, Trump was repeatedly put on the defensive by Clinton. He never let her accusations go unanswered, and as a result he missed opportunities to use his speaking time to draw attention to Clinton's perceived weaknesses. A Reuters-Ipsos poll had Clinton leading by five points on Friday, before the video surfaced. Now, the question is whether Trump's quest for the presidency is all but over.
