Hillary Clinton (47 per cent) is leading the fray for the US elections with a lead of 8 per cent over her Republican rival Donald Trump (39 per cent), says the latest election opinion polls released by CNN on Monday.

The other candidates who are trailing behind the duo include Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson (7 per cent) and Green Party candidate Jill Stein (2 per cent), revealed the Poll of Polls by CNN.

The results are calculated by taking the averages of four recently released national polls on general election 2016 that fulfills CNN’s analysis, said the news channel.

All these polls have taken after matching them up with the analysis of third party candidates, said CNN, adding they do not have any margin of sampling error.

The polls were conducted after the release of Trump’s infamous ”locker room chats”, recorded in 2005. The Republican candidate was shown as passing lewd comments on women, causing him a major public harassment.

Later, he had to publicly apologised over the incident and his image was tarnished over the tapes, causing a major PR crisis for his party.

Many experts said Trump was leading the election race until then and Trump had alleged Hillary and mainstream media for hatching a controversy to defeat him.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump has reiterated that this election is going to be rigged.

Here is his tweet on chances of rigging the election:
