With the third presidential debate looming, a leader pollster has dismissed Donald Trump has claimed that the 2016 presidential election is rigged. 

The US Republican presidential nominee has said the election is "absolutely rigged" by "dishonest media" and "at many polling places". Key supporter and adviser Rudy Giuliani, the former Mayor of New York, has also accused Democrats of "cheating". 

Sir Robert Worcester, the founder of Market & Opinion Research International Ltd (MORI), dismissed the businessman's claims of the election being rigged, telling Julia Hartley-Brewer it's difficult to conceive the notion and called it a farce because "he shoots himself in the foot, toe-by-toe, everytime he gets on television."

Worcester also suggested that Trump's chances of winning the election are dwindling fast, due to a lack of support in his own party, coupled with plummeting polling figures in the battleground states.
