Presidential debate with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump

Presidential debate with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump

In that context, it makes sense for Clinton to pull her punches if it looks like Trump is continuing to drive up his own negative ratings.

According to the UH poll, the independent voters will make the ultimate call on Election Day. Second, the Fox survey suggests that when respondents are asked who'll deliver the best change, he's three per cent behind Clinton.

In the head-to-head matchup, Clinton (49 percent) is leading with seven points over Trump (42 percent).

Clinton's camp has been projecting optimism in recent weeks, devoting resources to traditionally Republican states such as Arizona as polls indicate she stands a chance of victory.

However, Texas has only voted with the winning presidential candidate twice in the last six elections, both were wins for former Texas Governor and President George W. Bush. Prior to 1992, Texas voted for the presidential victor in every election dating back to 1976.

But younger men, age 18-44, lean towards Clinton, albeit by a narrower margin: Five points among 18-29-year-olds, and just one point for those aged between 30 and 44.

The potential of Texas turning blue has always been a dream of Democrats at the national level as flipping Texas would essentially halt any Republican from having an easy path to the White House. Trump, meanwhile, will have a hard path to stitch together the Electoral College majority he needs to win. The big question now: will the historically red Lone Star State go blue this election?

Tonight's third and final debate of Trump vs. Clinton will get underway at 9 p.m. ET. The most popular chants at Trump's political rallies used to be "lock her up" and "build that wall".

Ahead of the third debate, the Republican nominee has faced claims of sexual misconduct from a number of women, including a former contestant on the United States version of The Apprentice.

The poll, conducted online by SurveyUSA among 845 likely voters between October 11 and October 14, carries a margin of error of 3.4 percentage points. Voters with lower levels of education support Trump, while those with college degrees support Clinton.

The other guests are Karla Ortiz, an American citizen whose parents are in the country illegally, and Ofelia Diaz Cardenas, who works as a housekeeper at the Trump hotel in Las Vegas. The documents cited an FBI official as saying a senior state department official sought to pressure the bureau in 2015 to drop its insistence that an email from Mrs Clinton's private server contained classified information.

"If people say, 'it was a great debate and I don't remember you being there, ' I will have done my job", he told Fox News.

Sue Rosenthal, 74, said "something seems off" with early voting programmes in large cities that she says allow a stream of people to have access to voting machines ahead of election day.

Taco trucks have morphed into a political gag after a Latino Trump supporter warned that unchecked immigration would lead to "taco trucks on every corner".

The latest poll released Tuesday found the race a dead heat.

"I would hope to see a Donald Trump who is disciplined, magnanimous, charming, sticks to the issues".

Women support Clinton regardless of their education level.
