With roughly three weeks to Election Day, Republican strategists nationwide publicly concede Hillary Clinton has a firm grip on the 270 Electoral College votes needed to win the White House - and may be on her way to an even more decisive victory over Donald Trump.

In another, he claimed that hacked emails from Clinton's campaign chief John Podesta being released by the anti-secrecy group WikiLeaks "proves even the Clinton campaign knew" that she "mishandled classified info" on the private, unsecured email server she used while serving as the USA secretary of state from 2009 to 2013.

In a wild, conspiratorial speech on Thursday, he blamed a "concerted, coordinated, and vicious attack" by the media and the Clinton campaign.

The poll shows that Trump has only lost minimal ground to Clinton, compared to the last ABC/Washington Post poll which was taken on September 26, just days before the first presidential debate.

The idea the election is unfairly tilted against Trump has become a resurgent theme for the NY billionaire and many of his supporters in the past several days as he's slipped in preference polls and faced allegations of sexual misconduct. Hillary Clinton suffered through a hard end to August and beginning of September, coming to a head with her health crisis after the 9/11 memorial event in New York City. "At the end, it was like, take me down, she could barely reach her vehicle".

"I think we should take a drug test prior to the debate", Trump said during a rally here. "Why don't we do that?"

Trump's tribulations and accusations overshadowed the release Saturday of yet more emails hacked from accounts of Clinton campaign chairman John Podesta, laying bare aspects of the campaign's internal deliberations.

The unfounded claim that the Democratic nominee needed pharmaceutical help took some attention away from whether voters would believe the women who claim that Trump sexually assaulted them or instead accept the Republican's flat denials.

"This election is being rigged by the media pushing false and unsubstantiated charges, and outright lies, in order to elect Crooked Hillary!" he added, the Independent reported.

Ten women have now come forward to say they were the victims of unwanted advances by the real estate mogul. Another woman, former Apprentice contestant Summer Zervos, claims that Trump "kissed her aggressively" in 2007. But he also appeared to embrace, at least partly, the notion of a "rigged" election.

All of the women who have accused Trump of sexual assault or sexual harassment all have their unique stories to tell.

Based on responses when people were asked who they would vote for if the election were held today, Clinton's chances of winning are at 87 percent compared to Trump's 13 percent, according to FiveThirtyEight.com. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks during a campaign rally, Saturday, Oct. 15, 2016, in Portsmouth, N.H.

In a weekend statement quoted by media, a spokeswoman for U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan, the top U.S. elected Republican, said: "Our democracy relies on confidence in election results, and the speaker is fully confident the states will carry out this election with integrity". US officials say the Russian government sanctioned the electronic break-in.

President Obama says Republican candidate a dictator-in-the-making.

Travellers in the affected flights would be re-booked on other flights or airlines.
