Donald Trump's comment during the final presidential debate that he may not accept the outcome of next month's election has caused a bit of a stir. His running mate, Vice-Presidential contender Mike Pence, clarified the remark afterwards. (SOUNDBITE)(English) REPUBLICAN VICE-PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE MIKE PENCE SAYING: "I think what you heard Donald Trump say tonight was out of concern for, frankly, fairly obvious bias in much of the national media and out of concern for pockets and instances of voter fraud around the country, that he said he'll look at it at the time." The interim chairwoman of the Democratic National Committee reckons Trump is putting the reputation of the whole U.S. election system at risk. (SOUNDBITE) (English) DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMITTEE INTERIM CHAIRWOMAN DONNA BRAZILE SAYING: "We are an example for the world and to have a leading presidential candidate undermine our democracy, I think is shameful." A CNN snap poll after the debate said 52 per cent thought Clinton came out on top, 39 per cent said Trump was the victor.
