In dramatic reversal, Cruz to vote for Trump

More generally, the two candidates' supporters are about equally likely to say the USA role in world affairs is very or extremely important, 71 percent for Clinton's supporters to 69 percent for Trump's. First, his promise to support the Republican nominee. Can Clinton goad him into more unseemly behavior before an audience of 100 million people or so, especially by attacking his lack of political experience?

Two Florida men chose to go all in with their picks for president, one with a tattoo of Hillary Clinton on his arm, the other a portrait of Donald Trump on his leg. On the campaign trail and in television ads, she's targeted Trump's criticism of a US -born judge of Mexican descent, his feud with an American-Muslim family whose son was killed in Iraq while serving in the Army and his mocking of a disabled reporter.

Trump's advisers have coached the celebrity businessman to resist attempts by Clinton to provoke him with questions about his business record, wealth or contentious comments about minorities, including his fabricated theories about where Obama was born.

Ted Cruz announced Friday he will vote for Donald Trump, a dramatic about-face that may help unite a deeply divided Republican Party months after the fiery Texas conservative called Trump a "pathological liar" and "utterly amoral".

"We have fought the battle and he was a tough and brilliant opponent", Mr Trump said.

"A year ago, I pledged to endorse the Republican nominee, and I am honouring that commitment".

Trump lightened his campaign schedule as the debate neared, retreating from the public eye altogether on Friday and scheduled one rally Saturday. Palmieri said that letting false statements go unquestioned would give Trump an "unfair advantage".

"There's a slice of the voters who are very sensitive about a man appearing to bully a woman", Granholm said.

"Even though I have had areas of significant disagreement with our nominee, by any measure Hillary Clinton is wholly unacceptable - that's why I have always been * a class="_58cn" data-ft="{"tn":"*N","type":104}" href="https://www.facebook.com/hashtag/neverhillary?source=feed_text&story_id=10154476728267464" *#NeverHillary", Cruz said. Just this week, Trump came out strongly against that plan, and in support of free speech online. Obama responded, "You're likable enough, Hillary".

It's more likely that Trump will be prepared with zingers (or be able to come up with them on the fly).

"It's not really a vote for her as it's a vote against Trump", said Mark Corbin, 59, a business administrator and registered Democrat from Media, Pennsylvania.

American voters aren't happy with the economic status quo, the poll shows. Among likely voters, 39 per cent supported Clinton, 37 per cent favored Trump, 7 per cent picked Johnson and 2 per cent supported Stein.

Neither do a lot of other people. But, sadly, he's still focusing on how women look rather than what they can do; just this month Trump told ABC he doesn't think Clinton has a "presidential look", according to the New York Times.

Trump is the acknowledged expert in stage presence - but also the person whose flippant or mean-spirited remarks far too often get him in hot water with many voters.

Cruz noted that he was booed by Trump supporters at the convention for encouraging Republicans to "vote your conscience". Clinton is planning to reschedule the visit for a week later.
