Race Tightening, Clinton Relays On Firewall Of Support

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks in King of Prussia Pa. Tuesday Nov. 1 2016. Neither Trump nor Hillary Clinton talks much anymore about why they're the best choice for president. Instead in the campaign

Miller said on October 19 that the Republican nominee, when he declined during the third debate to say if he was going to accept the results of the election, was putting those looking to commit voter fraud on notice "that we're going to be watching, and we're going to make sure that we have honest and fair elections".

The poll also registered a seven point decline for Mrs Clinton in the share of likely voters who are strongly enthusiastic about her. She is unfit to be president.

While vote preferences have held essentially steady, the latest poll marks the ebbing away of the strong enthusiasm that the former Secretary of State enjoyed. By contrast, about a fifth of Democrats say Clinton's email use while she was secretary of state makes them less likely to vote for her, but majority say they're ultimately supporting her anyway.

"That'll happen automatically, in my opinion, because I am putting pro-life justices on the court", Trump said during the third debate. But women (10%) are even less likely than men (14%) to say the allegations have caused them to change their vote.

According to RealClearPolitics, which keeps track of all major polls, Trump is trailing Clinton by 3.1 percentage in average of polls.

Six in 10 voters say Trump is very or somewhat sexist, and almost two-thirds say he has little to no respect for women.

Citing the Voting Rights Act and the Ku Klux Klan Act, Democrats allege that state Republican parties and Trump are colluding with Stone to intimidate minority voters. While the Obama administration has disclosed earlier that Russian agencies were involved in breaking into Democratic computer networks, the charge that Mr. Trump is linked to the Russian government is unsubstantiated, but frequently raised by Ms. Clinton and her surrogates. That's down from 26 percent in the previous poll conducted by SurveyUSA and issued Tuesday by Southern California News Group and KABC/Eyewitness News.

"Trump has sought to advance his campaign's goal of "voter suppression" by using the loudest microphone in the nation to implore his supporters to engage in unlawful intimidation", the Ohio Democratic Party wrote in the official filing. Democratic Senator Reid had a day earlier written to Mr. Comey that "it has become clear that you possess explosive information about close ties and coordination between Donald Trump, his top advisors, and the Russian government".

It gained attention in March after Republican Donald Trump said abortions should be illegal and he supported "some form of punishment" for women who had them.

However, the poll also asked likely voters about a hypothetical matchup between Clinton and Republican vice presidential nominee Gov. Mike Pence (Ind.), and in that pairing, Clinton leads by only four points. With a probability basis and coverage of people who otherwise couldn't access the internet, online surveys using KnowledgePanel are nationally representative.
