More Republicans expect Clinton, rather than Trump, to win U.S. election
By Chris Kahn NEW YORK (Reuters) - More Republicans now think Democrat Hillary Clinton, rather than Donald Trump, will win the presidency, as their party's candidate struggles with difficulties including allegations of sexual misconduct and his suggestion he may not honor the outcome of the election. A Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Wednesday and conducted from Oct. 20 to Oct. 24 found that 41 percent of Republicans expected Clinton to win the Nov. 8 election, versus 40 percent who picked Trump. Among Trump's supporters, 49 percent in the latest poll said they believed Trump would win, down from 67 percent who felt that way at the beginning of the month.

Warriors get wake-up call as Durant era opens with a thud
(Reuters) - When Kevin Durant joined the Golden State Warriors many felt a championship was a mere formality, but a humbling season-opening loss has sent a sudden wakeup call to one of the NBA's most talented teams of all time. Durant had a team-high 27 points in his much anticipated Warriors debut on Tuesday but Golden State stumbled to a 129-100 blowout loss to the visiting San Antonio Spurs that prompted many in the sellout crowd to head for the exits early.

Rested McIlroy looks to reignite season in Shanghai
Rory McIlroy is hoping to snare his maiden WGC-HSBC Champions title on his sixth visit to the Sheshan International Golf Club this week as he builds toward the climax of his season in Dubai. McIlroy has not finished outside the top 11 in his previous five visits to the course with three top-five finishes, so has some justification for feeling that a win is overdue. "I feel like I'm playing well enough and that I've showed enough good form around this golf course in the past to be confident that I can give myself a chance this week." McIlroy has taken a rest from strokeplay golf since securing the FedEx Cup at the PGA Tour Championship in September and will be hoping success at Sheshan can act as a springboard to another triumph at the European Tour season-ender in Dubai.
