    US presidential candidate Donald Trump on Thursday declared himself the winner of the final televised debate after several polls showed him ahead of Hillary Clinton by a wide margin.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — The final hour-and-a half debate took place in Nevada late on Wednesday, less than three weeks before the presidential election. The two rivals clashed over US economy, migration, Syria, and Russia.

    "Thank you America – I am honored to win the final debate for our Movement," the Republican nominee said on Twitter.

    Online polls by the Washington Times and at least eight other media outlets showed that the real-estate mogul won the last debate with up to 94 percent of votes, while CNN’s poll handed the victory to the former US secretary of state, Clinton, reportedly backed by 52 percent of debate watchers.

    Previous CNN polls showed that Hillary Clinton won in the first and second rounds of the debates with 62 percent support rate in late September, and 57 percent earlier in October.
