Pollsters found that 69 percent of likely voters disapprove of Trump’s response to accusations about his treatment of women.

More than half, 59 percent, also reject the GOP nominee’s claim that the election is rigged against him, and 65 percent disapprove of his comments that he may not accept its results.

The poll of 1,391 adults, including 874 likely voters, was conducted Oct. 20–22. Its margin of error is 3.5 percentage points.

Clinton leads Trump by almost 6 points, 47.7 percent to 41.9 percent, according to a RealClearPolitics average of national polling.
