Jon Husted: Donald Trump’s ‘rigged’ election talk is ‘irresponsible’


Libertarian Gary Johnson won the support of 11 percent of voters, Green Party candidate Jill Stein had the support of 2 percent, independent Evan McMullin has 3 percent, while other voters said they were undecided, liked none of the candidates or would not answer. But after another day of polling taken immediately after the October 9 debate, the entire October 8-10 poll showed Clinton’s lead at nine points in the four-way contest (46 percent to 37 percent) and 10 points in a head-to-head race (50 percent to 40 percent).

Clinton has built huge leads in the state’s population centers.

“I think what Donald Trump is talking about is frankly what appears to be the monolithic support of the national media for Hillary Clinton’s campaign, their willful ignorance about the avalanche of hard evidence”, Pence said.

“This poll is showing the writing on the wall”, Yang adds.

Pence called on backers to “respectfully participate” in poll watching on Election Day. “Absolutely, there are cases of voter fraud”, he said.

Clinton’s campaign for months has been eyeing an expansion into Arizona, where Hispanic voters make up more than 15 percent of the electorate, but had done little beyond a round of advertising in September and deploy a handful of staff. Some 68 percent of voters interviewed in the Washington Post-ABC poll said Trump probably has made unwanted sexual advances on women while 14 percent said he probably hasn’t. His repeated assertions are sowing suspicion among his most ardent supporters, raising the possibility that millions of people may not accept the results on November 8 if Trump does not win.

Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence says evidence implicates Russian Federation in recent email hacks tied to the United States election, contradicting his running mate, Donald Trump, who cast doubt on Russia’s involvement.

Even so, 52 percent said the debates made no difference in their candidate preference.

As Trump and Clinton prepare for their third and last debate on Wednesday, Clinton is lying low, with the apparent strategy of letting Trump self-destruct. Others will be asked to concede on Trump’s behalf too, starting with Reince Priebus and Paul Ryan, and both will comply, but concessions from people attached to the campaign will be especially prized since they’re somewhat immune via their association with Trump to Trumpers’ inevitable accusations that they’re part of the “rigging” conspiracy.

No one was hurt in the attack, swiftly condemned by Clinton.

Days after the national Trump campaign fired his Virginia chairman, Corey Stewart, for holding an unauthorized rally at the Republican National Committee, the campaign is trying to knock down reports that Trump is abandoning efforts to carry Virginia’s 13 electoral votes. “Maybe if Republicans controlled the inner cities they would do as much cheating as Democrats”. Trump was deemed honest enough by 50 percent and not honest enough by 48 percent. The GOP push reflects growing worries that their nominee’s unsubstantiated rhetoric could erode public trust in elections and lead to damaging disputes if he loses.

Hillary Clinton is leading Donald Trump nationally among likely voters – but two new polls diverge on the size of her lead. Pollsters estimated that the comment accounted for a 1.6 percent jump in support for President Obama.

It’s the six-straight month where the president’s rating has been above 50 percent in the poll, and it’s his highest rating since December 2012, after he won re-election four years ago.

The CNN poll surveyed 774 likely voters with a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.5 percentage points.
