Several Republicans Thursday denounced Donald Trump's refusal to commit to accepting the result of the presidential election, and some worried his stance might make it more difficult for his party to hold onto control of Congress.It ratcheted up Trump's claims that the election was being rigged against him, and became the latest flashpoint in an unusually volatile race less than three weeks before voters go to the polls.Senator John McCain of Arizona, who lost the 2008 presidential election to Democrat Barack Obama, issued a strong statement saying that accepting the election result is "the American way".A few other Republicans, mostly those who have never backed Trump, also rejected his comments.A CNN/ORC snap poll said 52 percent thought Clinton won the debate, while 39 percent said Trump was the victor.
