(CNN) – Hillary Clinton eyeing the sunshine state and its 29 electoral votes Tuesday.

Expectations for Clinton are high. A new CNN/ORC poll shows nearly 7 in 10 voters believe she will win the election. Her campaign is spending their last two weeks racing through battleground states trying to convince voters not to become complacent

Clinton said, “I feel good, but I am not taking anything for granted. I am going to work as hard as I can between now and the close of the election.”

Vice president Joe Biden in battleground Pennsylvania: “This man is thoroughly unqualified based on his conduct, his abuse of power and his lack of substantive knowledge, just a diminished amount of knowledge needed to be President of the United States of America. So I’m finished with Donald Trump.”

President Obama on late night tv: “’President Obama will go down as perhaps the worst president in the history of the United States!’ Really? Well, @realdonaldtrump, at least I will go down as a president.”

And former president Bill Clinton is kicking off a bus tour in North Carolina, as he defends Obamacare. “Hillary says fix the problem, don’t repeal the solution. That’s a terrible idea. More than 20 million people would lose their health insurance.”

His plea coming as the government says premiums for those purchasing insurance on state exchanges will increase an average of 22 percent next year.

Now Clinton’s comments earlier this month seem prophetic. “So you’ve got this crazy system 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.”

That statement put him in the dog house with Democrats, and put his wife on defense with Donald Trump

The Clinton campaign released a statement Tuesday on the premium hikes, saying: “Hillary Clinton wants to build on the progress we’ve made and fix what’s broken, while Donald Trump would rip up the ACA, reverse the progress we have made and start this fight all over again.”

That as it tries to shift its focus to something they see as a strength for Clinton – foreign policy. Out Tuesday with a new ad featuring retired General John Allen:

“When someone makes the comment they know more about they know more about the Islamic State or ISIL than do the generals, it implies a complete ignorance of the reality.”
