He's mused out loud about an embarrassing 2020 defeat. He's acknowledged his severe deficit in key polls. And he's made naked appeals to the critical voting blocs of suburban women and older adults - two demographics he has struggled to win over.

Just weeks from Election Day, President Donald Trump is saying the quiet part out loud about his own campaign. The president is crisscrossing the country with a packed schedule, flying to some states he won handily in 2016, to deliver a final pitch for a second term - and making no secret of his own shaky standing.

"Could you imagine if I lose?" Trump said Friday evening at a campaign rally in Macon, Ga. "My whole life, what am I going to do? I'm going to say, 'I lost to the worst candidate in the history of politics.' I'm not going to feel so good. Maybe I'll have to leave the country. I don't know."
