    Donald Trump is working around the clock to gain more support after a recent national poll shows rival Hillary Clinton up 15 points in the presidential race.

    Saturday, Trump will attend private fundraisers on Nantucket and in Barnstable, Massachusetts. The fundraiser in the Osterville section of Barnstable will take place at the home of William Koch and his wife at 6 p.m.

    Gabrielle Rossin plans to greet Trump with a protest. She says about 200 people will join her with a peaceful march and protest from the West Bay Drawbridge to the Koch home in Oyster Harbors.

    "The thing about Trump is it doesn't get better," she said. "It just keeps getting worse. Everything he says or does as his campaign goes on continues to insult."

    John Bangert also plans to protest.

    "It's really a gated community," he told necn. "We want to put a wall of compassionate people around that community to say he does not have our class interest."

    Trump supporters in Osterville say the Republican nominee is exactly what their town needs.

    "I'm excited because I'm actually from his home state. And now he's a very successful businessman," expressed Kenny Gregory.

    "We're very excited. We need a change. We need some new blood in Washington," said Osterville resident Barry Crawford. "We need people that are thinking outside the box and we also need people that aren't establishment."

    Trump will also attend an event at Windham High School in Windham, New Hampshire, Saturday at 8 p.m.
