Washington, October 17, 2016: U.S. Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump conceded Sunday he is losing support from women, but he blamed it on media accounts of women who he says falsely accused him of sexual assault.

Trump tweeted that the polls show the race with Democrat Hillary Clinton remains close, “but can you believe I lost large numbers of women voters based on made up events THAT NEVER HAPPENED. Media rigging election!”

He repeated his charge that the media is biased against him, “in a coordinated effort with the Clinton campaign, by putting stories that never happened into news!”

Clinton’s vice presidential running mate, Virginia Senator Tim Kaine, mocked Trump’s allegations, telling one interviewer, “He’s blaming the media. He’s blaming (Republicans). He’s saying that America can’t run a fair election. He is swinging at every phantom of his own imagination because he knows he’s losing.”

But Trump’s vice presidential pick, Indiana Governor Mike Pence, told NBC television’s Meet the Press that Trump will accept the outcome of the election.

“The American people will speak in an election that will culminate on November the 8th. But the American people are tired of the obvious bias in the national media. That’s where the sense of a rigged election goes here.”

Polls: Clinton has 5.5% lead

Her lead, both polls show, is built chiefly among women, who could help make her the country’s 45th president and its first female chief executive. The Post- ABC survey says she has a nine-percentage-point lead among women, while Trump leads among men by a point. The NBC-Wall Street Journal survey says Clinton has a 20-point lead among women, while Trump has a three-point edge among men.

A national average of polls compiled by Real Clear Politics shows Clinton with a 5.5-percentage point lead. Two major polls were released Sunday, with The Washington Post-ABC News survey showing her advantage at 47 to 43 percent among likely voters, while NBC News and The Wall Street Journal said their polling shows Clinton with a bigger edge, 48-37.

It also gives Clinton a 20-point lead among women, while Trump has a 3-point edge among men.

Trump’s presidential campaign may have been destroyed by allegations of lewd and disrespectful comments and behavior towards women, including charges by several women dating back to the 1980s that he touched or kissed them inappropriately.

Trump was caught on camera in 2005 telling a TV personality that he can grope women because he is a “star.”

Trump apologized for those remarks and called the women who accuse him of sexual assault “liars,” mocking them by saying some of them are not attractive enough to grab his attention.

Upcoming third debate

Trump and Clinton face off in their third and final debate Wednesday in Las Vegas. With no evidence to back it up, he suggested Clinton was on drugs at their last debate last week, and said they each should undergo drug testing before Wednesday.

He also accused her of meeting with global financial leaders to “plot the destruction of U.S. sovereignty” and said she ought to be jailed for the way she handled her emails when she was secretary of state.

Clinton is staying off the campaign trail to prepare for the last debate.

She is likely to face questions about thousands of hacked emails from the account of her campaign chief John Podesta that WikiLeaks has disclosed in recent days.

The messages include the full transcripts of three speeches she gave to executives at investment banker Goldman Sachs in 2013 for which she was paid $675,000, along with comments by her campaign staffers about how to handle challenging campaign issues.

She told bankers in one speech that she had “great relations” with them when she was a New York senator and attempted to flatter her audience by saying the banking industry knows regulatory issues better than anyone else.

Publicly, Clinton has excoriated Wall Street and big banks, saying they need more government regulation.

The Clinton campaign has not disputed the authenticity of the Podesta emails and suspects Russia of the hacks. The FBI is investigating.

Meanwhile, police in Orange County, North Carolina say a bottle of flammable liquid was thrown through the window of the local Republican Party headquarters overnight Saturday, setting fire to furniture and damaging the office.

Google’s admission that it had in 2014 inadvertently coded the 112 distress number and the UIDAI helpline number into its setup wizard for Android devices triggered another controversy on Saturday as India’s telecom regulator had only recommended the use of 112 as an emergency number in April 2015.

After a large section of smartphone users in India saw a toll-free helpline number of UIDAI saved in their phone-books by default, Google issued a statement, saying its “internal review revealed that in 2014, the then UIDAI helpline number and the 112 distress helpline number were inadvertently coded into the SetUp wizard of the Android release given to OEMs for use in India and has remained there since”.

However, the Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) recommended only in April 2015 that the number 112 be adopted as the single emergency number for the country.

According to Google, “since the numbers get listed on a user’s contact list, these get  transferred accordingly to the contacts on any new device”.

Google was yet to comment on the new development.

Meanwhile, French security expert that goes by the name of Elliot Alderson and has been at the core of the entire Aadhaar controversy, tweeted on Saturday: “I just found something interesting. I will probably do full disclosure tomorrow”.

“I’m digging into the code of the @Google SetupWizard app and I found that”.

“As far as I can see this object is not used in the current code, so there is no implications. This is just a poor coding practice in term of security,” he further tweeted.

On Friday, both the Unique Identification Authority of India (UIDAI) as well as the telecom operators washed their hand of the issue.

While the telecom industry denied any role in the strange incident, the UIDAI said that he strange incident, the UIDAI said that some vested interests were trying to create “unwarranted confusion” in the public and clarified that it had not asked any manufacturer or telecom service provider to provide any such facility.

Twitter was abuzz with the new development after a huge uproar due to Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) Chairman R.S. Sharma’s open Aadhaar challenge to critics and hackers.

Ethical hackers exposed at least 14 personal details of the TRAI Chairman, including mobile numbers, home address, date of birth, PAN number and voter ID among others. (IANS)
