7:02 am
there are those some worrying signs in this poll for trump, we're talking about enthusiasm for his candidacy fallen by 12% among his supporters and two-thirds of registered voters reject his claim he did not make unwanted sexual advances towards women. >> trump has been making some unfounded charges raising eyebrows this morning. we're going to kick our coverage off with abc's mary bruce in our washington bureau. good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning. we well, donald trump is pointing fingers this morning at the media. his accusers and his opponents suggesting without evidence they're in cahoots saying the system is rigged against him and he's now making the unfounded claim that hillary clinton may be on drugs. >> i think she's actually getting pumped up. if you want to know the truth. >> reporter: with the final debate around the corner, donald trump says hillary clinton might have an unfair advantage, drugs. >> the beginning of her last debate she was all pumped up at the beginning and at the end, it was like, oh, take me down. >> reporter: trump suggesting they should face off before their big faceoff wednesday night. >> i think we should take a drug test prior to the debate.
7:03 am
>> reporter: with just 23 days to go, trump is crying foul, saying he is the victim of a conspiracy to deny him the election. >> the election is being rigged by corrupt media pushing false allegations and outright lies in an effort to elect hillary clinton president. >> reporter: in response, the clinton campaign saying in a statement, the electoral system is free, fair and open. and should be encouraged, not dismissed or undermined because a candidate is afraid he is going to lose. trump is on the attack as a growing number of women accuse him of sexual misconduct. >> false stories all made up. lies. lies. >> reporter: trump is fiercely fighting back going directly of a his accusers, like jessica leeds who says trump groped her on a plane in the '80s. >> how about this crazy woman on the airplane? okay. i mean, can anybody believe that one? >> reporter: leeds says the
7:04 am
inappropriate behavior lasted 15 minutes, but trump says his supporters wouldn't tolerate such boldness. >> 15 minutes? with the ladies in this place it would be one second and it would be smack. >> we're back with mary in washington. mary, is the trump campaign offering any evidence to back up this claim that hillary clinton was on drugs during the debate? >> reporter: no. trump is raising questions about clinton's behavior in and around the debates and comparing the two of them to athletes and suggesting they take a drug test before that next big computation. paula. >> thank you. hillary clinton meantime off the trail this morning. her team says she's preparing for the third and final debate coming up this wednesday. one thing she will almost certainly be asked about is the daily drip, that constant drip from wikileaks of hacked e-mails supposedly from clinton's campaign chief and the latest batch includes what appeared to be transcripts of highly paid speeches clinton gave to wall street bankers. abc's devon dwyer is on the
7:05 am
story from washington for us. good morning, devon. >> reporter: good morning. well, the wikileaks and hackers behind this breach of e-mails appear out to hurt and embarrass the clinton campaign. these new documents paint a picture of a campaign highly managed and micro managed in the smallest details. it's the clinton campaign's october surprise. this morning hundreds of new e-mails claim to have been hacked and stolen from campaign chairman john podesta's account posted on loin by wikileaks. they haven't been independently verified by abc news, the latest batch includes transcripts of three paid speeches clinton gave to bang banking goldman-sachs. the speeches show clinton's tough talk about wall street. >> we can't ever let wall street wreck main street again. >> reporter: there was a lot less talk in private. paid at $225,000 speaking fee. clinton appearing to have told goldman bankers in 2013 there's nothing magic about regulations. too much is bad.
7:06 am
too little bad and the people that know the industry better than anybody are the people who work in the industry. the clinton campaign won't comment on the transcripts or e-mails but both bernie sanders and donald trump accused her of playing it both ways. >> is it okay for politicians to be two-faced? h is it acceptable for a politician to have a private stance on issues? >> yes. president lincoln was trying to convince some people. he used some arguments. convincing other people he used other arguments. >> reporter: in another e-mail from january 2016, podesta receives a history of juanita broaddri broaddrick's sexual assault allegations. against bill clinton. the team preparing for the allegations which resurfaced. the clinton campaign calls this latest stump a quote, crime reminiscent of watergate.
7:07 am
dan and paula. >> and thousands e-mails being released every day. thank you. we want to bring in abc's martha raddatz in washington where she will be hosting "this week" later this morning. hi martha. thanks for joining us. we want to start with the new poll showing hillary clinton with the four-point lead within the margin of error and other polls give her a larger lead. we have even seen double digits. how should we interpret this new poll? >> reporter: paula, that's right. the top numbers of our new poll seem like an juoutlier, but if u look deeper, we're picking the same impressions in the electorate that enthusiasm for trump is fading while it holds steady for clinton and that the public increasingly views him as lacking the moral character and the right temperament to be president. these allegations have dragged him down, but the deep partisan divides clinton's own unfavorable ratings are keeping this from becoming a blowout. >> i was going to say she has got very high negatives herself. this morning, a lot of people are expressing concern about donald trump's increasingly unfounded charges that the election may be rigged.
7:08 am
"the associated press" has a story out this morning that says, quote, it undercuts the essence of american democracy. how so? >> reporter: over 200 years of democracy in america peaceful, political transition between one administration and the next has been critical and has never been challenged until now. the danger of trump's repeated unsubstantiated claim about a rigged election is that it undermines the public's faith in our democracy itself, and that can have a destructive consequence. >> as a season debate moderator, we know the wikileaks continues to release these apparently hacked e-mails from clinton's campaign chief. how big of an issue is this at wednesday's debate? that's the the final presidential debate. >> reporter: there's no doubt, that if not for trump, this would be the october surprise we had all been talking about. it's a big issue, paula, and one trump will hammer home on the debate stage wednesday because even without a real smoking gun in it, it paints the picture that many already have of
7:09 am
secretary clinton and insider politician with a public and private stance on issues. paula and dan. >> speaking of debate stage, let us just add our voices to the chorus. martha you did a great job at the debate. we're proud to know you. thank you very much. >> thank you very much, guys. >> we're proud of you. >> and i do not ever want to get on your bad side. >> i think you already are, dan. >> reporter: watch out. no chance. no chance. >> thanks again. martha will have much more later this morning on "this week." she's going one on one with tim kaine as well as former house speaker newt gingrich coming up this morning right here on abc. >> such a class act and wonderful colleague. in the meantime, there are significant storms that are bruising the northwest right now. one right after the other. we're talking downed power lines and toppled trees. rob is here with the forecast. good morning, rob. >> reporter: good morning, paula. this was an old typhoon.
