Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has repeated his claim that the United States election is rigged, and the accusation seems to be resonating with voters, despite the fact that he has not offered any evidence to substantiate his statement.

Early voting is underway in more than 30 states. He said Clinton would carry on his policies, and he frequently mentioned U.S. Rep. Murphy of Jupiter along with the Democratic presidential nominee. Thursday night's dinner wasn't even the only recent example of Trump's having trouble taking jokes in stride. Barack denied that Michelle's comment was directed at the Clintons, and Michelle's spokesperson said, "The only family Mrs. Obama was talking about was the Obama family".

"She's just reading her briefing book all the time". She's not watching reality TV. "She knows a lot about how government works. I'll keep you in suspense, OK?"

He also noted that tonight's even has proven the two candidates "can actually be civil to each other".

But he said that, if all his supporters come out to vote, he'll win on 8 November.

Obama, who has felt the sting of losing an election, wasn't buying it. Donald Trump said in the first debate that we'll respect the will of the American people in this election. "He knew exactly what the press would jump on so he said that to embolden his base", he said. "My wife Melania gives the exact same speech, and people get on her case", he said to whoops and laughs. Why is he supporting Donald Trump?... At the White House, press secretary Josh Earnest said it was unclear what Moscow was trying to do.

The data supplied by the Nielsen ratings agency on Thursday covered people who watched Wednesday night's debate on the four main USA broadcast networks plus nine cable and public television channels.

Many prominent Republicans broke with Trump after the release of 2005 tape in which he boasted in crude terms about kissing and groping women.

Trump's allegations, Obama said, are more than just the usual standard lie. "Marco Rubio is one of those people", Obama said at Thursday's rally.

"I am very concerned that people who feel demoralized by this election cycle, and I understand those sentiments, but I am very concerned that people are going to stay home", he said. So, with the polls being so close, anything could happen. The state is one that the campaign up until recently felt unsure about. He urged Florida voters to send Democratic Rep. Patrick Murphy to the Senate instead.

Clinton took the stage after the Republican nominee returned to his seat, and she began by discussing the importance of the event before diving in to jokes about everything from WikiLeaks to her pantsuit collection.
