Under attack, Trump turns on US House speaker and media


When only the major two parties were considered, Clinton led Trump by 14 percentage points-52 percent compared to Trump's 38 percent.

It's still too early to say what the full effect of the video will be on Trump and down-ballot candidates.

According to a poll released Sunday by NBC, the Wall Street Journal and Marist, Clinton leads Trump 46% to 44% in the Sunshine State.

Clinton, for her part, was questioned about her use of a private email server while secretary of state, an issue that prompted investigators to conclude she had put some top secret material at risk, although federal prosecution was not recommended. Trump did not offer any evidence of how Hillary Clinton attacked those women or why it was worse than the alleged sexual misconduct Bill Clinton engaged in.

Just 23 per cent of Republicans said the tape should lead to Republican representatives dropping their endorsement of Trump, or calling for the billionaire to remove himself from the presidential race.

Donald Trump said his opponent Hillary Clinton is "highly overrated" and that all she has going for her in this election is the media. Forty-one percent of respondents said that Trump's comments were "completely unacceptable".

The town-hall debate was 90 minutes long and each presidential candidate's airtime was nearly exactly equal, with Trump speaking a minute more than Clinton, according to CNN. The latest results were collected from likely voters on October 5, 6 and 9.

The negatives on Donald Trump dwarf those of his foe.

Commenting on his debate performance, Trump said, "We had a lot of fun". The HuffPost Pollster charts, which aggregate publicly released polls, also show a small declining trend for the GOP nominee, in both the head-to-head race with Hillary Clinton and polls that include Gary Johnson.

Asked if that's "two-faced", Clinton pointed to Abraham Lincoln's effort to get the 13th Amendment passed, allowing emancipation of slaves, by lawmakers who did not support African-American equality. It has a margin of error of 4.6 points for likely voters.
