Edison (New Jersey): Slamming Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump for questioning free and fairness of the American electoral system, the rival Clinton Campaign has said the November 8 general elections would register a record voter turn-out.
"This election will have record turnout, because voters see through Donald Trump's shameful attempts to undermine an election week before it happens," said Clinton Campaign manager Robby Mook.
"Campaigns should be hard-fought and elections hard-won, but what is fundamental about the American electoral system is that it is free, fair and open to fair and open to the people," he said.
"Participation in the system and particularly voting should be encouraged, not dismissed or undermined because a candidate is afraid he's going to lose," Mook alleged.
In all major national polls, Clinton is leading Trump by more than seven points.
She has received endorsements from all major American publications.
If elected, she would be the first woman to be elected as the president of the United States.
Democratic National Committee interim-chair Donna Brazile alleged that Trump was trying to convince voters that their votes do not count by telling them that the system is rigged.
"He's wrong. Voting has never been easier and more Americans are seeing Donald Trump's fear-mongering for what it really is. Fear," she said.
"Each day, we've seen Trump try to cope with fact that his past has caught up with him by distracting his audiences with empty conspiracy theories.
"Our Democratic candidates are encouraging people to vote.
We're working every day to get more people registered. And we believe that we will solve our nation's problems when more people make their voices heard," Brazile said.
