Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump accused Democrats Monday of making up phony opinion polls to make it look as if Democrat Hillary Clinton is ahead in the race.
Trump told a group of Florida farmers he is actually the one in a lead."I watch the polls, because this is part of the crooked system. It's part of the rigged system that I have been talking about since I entered the race. I understand it. It's a rigged system."Trump produced no evidence, though, to support his claim.Meanwhile, Clinton campaigned in the northeastern state of New Hampshire."All this talk about the election being rigged, trying to stir up people who are supporting him at his rallies, that is a direct threat to our democracy."One opinion poll released Sunday by ABC news indicates Clinton has surged ahead of Trump 50-38 percent.
