With schedules, Trump, Clinton reveal strategy and style

Eleven days prior to the United States Presidential election, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump proposed the idea for the election to be cancelled.

According to a Fox News poll released on Wednesday, Clinton has a three-point advantage over Trump. While Clinton and her family have cultivated relationships with party financiers for decades, Trump bragged about his independence from donors during the Republican primary, and mostly self-funded his campaign until defeating the last of his GOP rivals in May.

That is compared to Hillary Clinton's $62 million.

The poll is the latest in a series conducted by a partnership between UT's Texas Politics Project and The Texas Tribune.

The UPI/CVoter online tracking poll surveys at least 200 people each day, leading to a sample size of more than 1,400 people during any seven-day span. Clinton led Trump 50 percent to 44 percent, in the head-to-head.

It was a sharp turn for Trump, who has called the election rigged and argued that everyone, including the media, politicians and debate moderators, has attempted to destroy his run for the White House.

While there are other states he must also win, any electoral map that ends with President Trump starts with Florida colored red. Law was careful to temper his optimism, though he did say he thinks Republicans "will hold the majority".

On the Electoral College front, RealClearPolitics shows that Clinton is ahead in states that total 333 electoral votes.

"Let's be real. As our first African-American first lady, she's faced pressures I never did, and she's handled them with pure grace", Clinton said to applause. Four in 10 said she did so intentionally.

But Trump's apparent vulgarity is now no longer even close to the biggest story in this election, and Clinton's perceived-by-many criminal image is. But the image of Trump as something much less of a gentleman and certainly crude with women might as well be etched in stone. That's despite the fact that 63 percent think Hillary Clinton has probably threatened or undermined women who have accused her husband of sexual misconduct. On the other side, Clinton has been campaigning, but at the same time, Clinton continues to deal with more WikiLeaks emails and Project Veritas videos. "That would explain the surge in women saying they will vote for Trump and the way the party loyalty gap has closed".

Another 2 percent of Trump fans who believe he will win say they're less likely to vote because of it.

More than 80% of registered Republicans are likely voters in the Washington Post/ABC poll, up from 75% a week ago. The margin of sampling error for all respondents is plus or minus 2.75 percentage points, and for likely voters is plus or minus 3.1 percentage points.
