JACOB SOBOROFF, MSNBC: So the new numbers in North Carolina are in, and Democrats are outpacing Republicans. This is pretty normal. They are ahead with 47% of early votes and absentee ballots in. It is important to know that they were also ahead [in early voting] in 2012, even though Mitt Romney won...
So here is the line for the event today, North Carolina, we'll swing around to show you and talk a couple of people... This is Trump's supporters, Trina and Gloria, mother and daughter. We heard a lot of criticisms of Trump's inner city policies. What do you make of that criticism, I am sure you heard it.
TRINA: Well, I think Trump is reaching out all citizens including African-Americans, he's trying to address a problem. It should not be a problem if you address there is something wrong and you got a plan that wants to help people. That's what a president should do for us, reaching out to try to help people and addressing problems that's going on in our country.
SOBOROFF: Some of the criticisms have been -- because he'll often say: 'what do you have to lose?' speaking directly to African-Americans, what do you think about that criticism?
GLORIA: My word to all black Americans, one thing I would like to say is: Let's not be deceived. Look at the record, look at the promises that have been made over the past from the Democratic party. We are not voting for a party. We are voting for a man who's been standing by all citizens. He loves America. That's what I love about him. We need somebody that loves America. And he also loves all people. All people.
And there is that deception out there that he has no black supporters. Wrong. He does.
