Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Saturday repeated his accusations that the US voting system is "rigged", but assured supporters in Cleveland, Ohio that his campaign would "beat the system."
The polling data shows Trump's argument that the Nov. 8 election is "rigged" against him has resonated with members of his party. He gained on his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton among American voters this week, cutting her lead nearly in half, according to Reuters/Ipsos polling released on Friday.
Clinton led Trump 44 percent to 40 percent, according to the Oct. 14-20 Reuters/Ipsos poll, a 4-point lead. That compared with 44 percent for Clinton and 37 percent for Trump in the Oct. 7-13 poll released last week.
An average of national opinion polls by RealClearPolitics shows Clinton 6.2 percentage points ahead at 48.1 percent support to Trump's 41.9 percent.
