US Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton holds a 12-point lead over her Republican rival Donald Trump nationally, according to a new poll, but the Trump campaign denounces “biased” media surveys. 
The former secretary of state has the support of 50 percent of likely voters, while the billionaire businessman has 38 percent support, claimed the ABC News 2016 tracking poll released on Sunday.
Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson has 5 percent support among likely voters, while Green Party nominee Jill Stein has 2 percent support.
According to ABC News, Clinton is at her highest level of support in any ABC News/Washington Post poll, while Trump is at his lowest.
Sixty-nine percent of likely voters reject Trump’s response to accusations about his alleged remarks about women, according to pollsters.
Pollsters also claimed that 59 percent of voters disapprove of the billionaire’s claim that the election is rigged in favor of Clinton, and 65 percent dislike his comments that he might not accept vote results.   
The poll was conducted from October 20 to 22 of 1,391 adults, including 874 likely voters. It has a margin of error of 3.5 percentage points.
Trump rejects the polls coming from mainstream media outlets as fabricated and says the media wants to get Clinton as president at any cost.
Clinton ‘official candidate of multinational ruling elite’

Trump’s campaign on Sunday said the candidate would “break up the new media conglomerate oligopolies” if elected president and denounced Clinton as “the official candidate of the multinational ruling elite.”
The US media conglomerates have “gained enormous control over our information, intrude into our personal lives, and in this election, are attempting to unduly influence America’s political process,” said Trump’s senior economic adviser Peter Navarro.
“The very corporations that have gained from shipping America’s factories and jobs offshore are the very same media conglomerates now pushing Hillary Clinton’s agenda,” Navarro stated.
Trump has recently intensified his criticism of the American electoral system. He called the election process rigged, and said the media is colluding with Clinton in order to beat him.
He has questioned the legitimacy of the US elections, saying that he believed the vote was already being “rigged” at many polling places.
During his final presidential debate with Clinton last week, Trump declared that he might not accept the results of the November 8 presidential election if there is evidence it was rigged.
“I will look at it at the time. I’m not looking at anything now,” Trump said.
“The media is so dishonest and so corrupt and the pile-on is so amazing, The New York Times wrote an article about it. They don’t even care, it’s so dishonest, they’ve poisoned the minds of the voters, but unfortunately for them, I think the voters are seeing through it,” he added.
According to a new poll, a majority of likely American voters believe mainstream media organizations are biased against Trump.
According to the national Quinnipiac University poll released on Wednesday, 55 of likely voters said the media is biased against Trump, while 42 percent could not find any bias in the media against the real estate tycoon.
Almost 90 percent of Republican voters think that news media is biased against Trump, while 3 in 4 Democrats disagree with that opinion.
