U.S. presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump kicked off a fierce general election battle, with Democrats accusing Trump of erratic behavior and the Republican threatening to bring up old Clinton scandals.All signs point toward a negative campaign for five months as Clinton accuses Trump of being temperamentally unfit to serve and the New York billionaire charges Clinton has a dark past with shades of corruption and a weak record as President Barack Obama's first-term secretary of state.A Reuters/Ipsos poll on Tuesday showed Clinton leading Trump by 10 percentage points nationally, little changed from a week earlier.Trump has an uphill battle, with many party leaders still opposed to him.Clinton edged Sanders out in a rough-and-tumble battle that stretched over four months and 50 states.Democratic Party elites are lined up squarely behind Clinton, including most likely Obama, who may endorse her as early as this week. Obama also has congratulated Clinton on her nomination win.Clinton won 56 percent to Sanders' 43 percent, avoiding what would have been an embarrassing loss for her in America's most populous state.
