US ELECTION: Donald Trump Cries Foul As New Poll Shows Clinton Leading With Very Wide Margin

Hillary Clinton has widened her lead over Donald Trump nationally and in key swing states three weeks before Election Day, a poll showed Monday, as the Republican presidential nominee struggled to find a way back into the race.

Trump, whose campaign has been reeling in the face of lewd comments about women and accusations of sexual assault, has doubled down on claims of “large scale voter fraud” in the US election, despite denials from within his own party.
And his team has deployed his wife Melania in a media blitz to try to tamp down the furor over the allegations, with interviews set to air late Monday on CNN and early Tuesday on Fox News.
“Those words, they were offensive to me and they were inappropriate. And he apologized to me. And I accept his apology. And we are moving on,” Trump told Fox, in an excerpt released by the network.
The Republican nominee takes the stage Wednesday with his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton in their final debate before voters make their choice on November 8.
Clinton leads Trump by 12 points — 50 percent to 38 percent — among likely voters nationwide, in a four-way contest with third-party candidates, a poll by Monmouth University showed. Among registered voters, her lead is 11 points.
Meanwhile, a survey from Quinnipiac University showed Clinton leading in several key battleground states — Colorado, Florida and Pennsylvania — and even with Trump in Ohio.
A CNN poll puts Trump ahead by four points in Ohio, but gives Clinton a slight lead in North Carolina and Nevada.
