Trump ramps up voter fraud claim, digs in against women accusers

Trump ramps up voter fraud claim, digs in against women accusers

In some of the most recent findings, Rasmussen Reports released new results Monday showing Clinton edging Trump 43-41 percent among likely USA voters - retaking a slight lead after Trump led the same poll by 2 points late last week.

"I'm going to go, for sure", 61-year-old OH carpenter Steve Webb recently told the Boston Globe. "Voter fraud cannot be tolerated by anyone in this nation because it disenfranchises Republican, Independents, Democrats, conservatives and liberals in America", said Pence, "do all you can to respectfully participate in the process and ensure the outcome, the outcome we can all be proud of".

Trump's claims - which he has repeated on social media - has left many commentators concerned about a possible legitimacy crisis, but as Trevor Noah smartly observed on Monday night, it likely comes from Trump's background in reality TV: The Apprentice, beauty pageants, pro wrestling.

"It works very well in places like OH", he said, which is a crucial state for Trump to pull off a November victory.

Calling Trump's claim of a rigged election a tactic of desperation, the Clinton campaign over the last weekend issued a statement expressing confidence of the fairness of the election.

Trump's campaign has been struggling with sexual misconduct allegations from several women since a 2005 videotape emerged on October 7 showing him boasting about groping and making other unwanted sexual advances on women. The billionaire provided no evidence to back up his allegations, and studies have found only a handful of incidents of voter fraud in recent United States elections.

"We will absolutely accept the result of this election", vice presidential candidate Mike Pence told "Meet The Press" on Sunday.

Clinton leads Trump by a margin of 48 percent to 44 percent, with Libertarian Gary Johnson getting 4 percent and Green Party candidate Jill Stein at 1 percent, according to the Quinnipiac University poll released Monday.

"I think there's no question that the evidence continues to point in that direction", Pence said.

"Trump's best hope is a knockout win in the last debate Wednesday evening, his last shot at a national audience", Brown said.

Overall, the poll found that registered voters preferred Clinton to Trump, 46 percent to 41 percent. "I'll make sure of that".

The fraud concerns raised by Trump aren't new to Republicans. "Look, the American people will speak in an election that will culminate on November the 8th". Clintons team is also putting an additional $1 million into efforts in Missouri and in, and expanding already existing operations by $6 million in seven battleground states, according to campaign manager Robby Mook.

Trump's tweets on voter fraud zeroed in another source of tension among Republicans. "Because I don't know what's going on with her".
