Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's message to people who support Republican Donald Trump: "I hope you can see I don't have horns."

During an event in Mason City, Iowa, 22-year-old Kayla Helmers asked Clinton to record a message for her father, Shawn Starry, who supports Trump.

"Hi Shawn, I'm here with your daughter and I hope you can see I don't have horns, and I really do hope that as this election goes on you'll listen to your daughter. Thanks! Bye!" Clinton said.

CBS News' Hannah Fraser-Chanpong captured the moment.

Clinton still beats Trump in hypothetical 2016 general election matchups, although her lead has narrowed substantially since the summer. An ABC News/Washington Post poll taken between Dec. 10 and 13 has her leading Trump 50 to 44.
