GfK poll: Most voters believe media biased against Trump

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, who is still trailing his opponent Hillary Clinton two weeks from Election Day, said he'd like to "cancel the election" and be declared the victor, media reports said.

"We are going to have, I think, a tremendous victory", Trump said in an interview with CNN before heading to North Carolina, one of the battleground states he needs to win on November 8. "You can be very tough, but you shouldn't be doing what she's doing".

The New York businessman also struck back at Clinton for criticizing him for attending the opening of his new hotel in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump batted away a legion of polls pointing to impending electoral doom Thursday, insisting he will win the White House in 12 days' time.

Pressed on whether he'll open his wallet to match an onslaught of Clinton ads, Trump said he will have spent $100 million by Election Day.

Bridget Lundy of Adrian said she's most interested in Trump's position on immigration, especially since her daughter-in-law came to the country legally from Hungary.

The survey shows her leading Trump nationally by a staggering 14 percentage points among likely voters, 51-37. "And Mrs. Khan. He hasn't apologized to them, he made it worse", she said. Sixty per cent of Clinton's supporters see no bias in either direction.

The two candidates are tied among likely Georgia voters at 46 percent in a head-to-head match.

Jonathan Greenblatt, director and chief executive of the Anti-Defamation League, said Trump's references to the collusion of global banking elites sound as though they are "straight out of the Protocols of Zion", an infamous anti-Semitic tract. While campaigning in OH, he criticized Clinton for being too tough on Vladimir Putin, another surprisingly favourable comment from Trump about the Russian leader.

'Time will tell how effective it is for him, ' he said.

Asked about his tweets, the Republican presidential nominee said, "I believe in fighting back when people are against me".

"Lots of people are hanging low, waiting to pounce", the 57-year-old said from his front-row seat near where Trump will speak to the crowd on the dirt-covered floor. Trump's invocation at the debate of Clinton's WikiLeaks e-mails and support for the Trans-Pacific Partnership was created to turn off Sanders supporters. While polls show a tighter than normal presidential race, Texas has not voted for a Democratic presidential candidate since Jimmy Carter in 1976 and Hillary Clinton is not campaigning there. Clinton's margin in the survey has barely changed from her 47-43 edge in a mid-October Post-ABC poll, but is less than the double-digit leads in earlier waves of the tracking survey reported by ABC News through Monday.

The stricter ID law was passed in 2011 by the Republican-led state Legislature and was found by a federal appeals court this summer to disproportionately affect minorities and poorer people, who tend to vote Democratic.

In a sign of how competitive the race remains in Florida, Clinton is scheduled to campaign Saturday night in Miami alongside the singer Jennifer Lopez.
