Trump calls GOP leaders 'naive' on voter fraud

The health of the United States economy was the most important issue in this election for those surveyed, with 32 percent saying so, followed by 22 percent who said security issues and 15 percent who said seniors' issues.

Trump had a 52-37 percent lead over Clinton among white voters.

In a head-to-head matchup, voters still picked Trump over Clinton 48-47 percent, according to Monday's poll.

If Trump's numbers stay this low, states like Florida will go to Clinton and she will be the next president.

A CNN poll puts Mr Trump ahead by four points in OH, but gives Mrs Clinton a slight lead in North Carolina and Nevada.

"Secretary Clinton has held or increased her lead following the second debate", Quinnipiac poll assistant director Peter Brown said, referring to her lead in national polls.

Trump has called the allegations "slander and libel" and part of a "concerted, coordinated and vicious attack" launched by Clinton and the news media to destroy his campaign. Monmouth University found that six in 10 voters believe he made unwanted sexual advances towards women - claims he vehemently denies.

Of the 805 registered voters reached, 726 were determined to be likely to vote in the November 6 election, with a margin of error of plus-or-minus 3.6 per cent. But he backtracked in an interview with The New York Times last month, saying, "We're going to see what happens".

There is no evidence to back up Mr Trump's claim of widespread voter fraud.

On Saturday, Republican Senator Jeff Sessions accused the United States establishment of attempting to rig the presidential election for Clinton. Pence's running mate Donald Trump has been warning Americans along the campaign trail that the system is "rigged" for Clinton.

In a report titled "The Truth About Voter Fraud", the centre cited voter fraud incident rates between 0.00004 per cent and 0.0009 per cent.

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton is leading her Republican rival Donald Trump by eight points among likely voters, according to the most recent CNN Poll of Polls, released Monday.

"If there is a systemic problem, please identify it". 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.

"He knows he's losing and he's trying to blame that on the system".

Trump has campaigned against a "rigged system" for months, but he's homed in on voter fraud specifically as polls showed his chances deteriorating after his first debate with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton on September 26.

The CNN polls were conducted October 15.

Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona, a frequent Trump critic, also took to Twitter on Sunday to express his views on Trump's claims.
