73% Of Republicans Say Election Could Be "Stolen" As Trump Slams "Rigged Elections"

Tyler Durden's picture

The Trump campaign stepped up their "election rigging" rhetoric over the weekend with a tweet storm from Trump that blasted the "dishonest and distorted media" working in coordination with the Clinton campaign and alleged voter fraud at polling places.


Trump surrogate, Rudy Giuliani also appeared on CNN and made some of the more aggressive election rigging claims we've heard so far in this election cycle.  Among other things, Giuliani said that the election is "absolutely being rigged" with dead people voting in numerous precincts as Democrats bus people from polling station to polling station where they vote "four, five, six, seven, eight, nine times."  Finally, Giuliani concluded by saying "if you want me to tell you that the elections of Chicago and Philadelphia are going to be fair, I would have to be a moron to say that." Per Bloomberg:

Trump said in a Twitter message Sunday that the Nov. 8 election is “absolutely being rigged” at polling places and through media coverage. Former New York Mayor Rudolph Giuliani said election fraud was a sin committed almost entirely by Democrats in America’s inner cities, where populations tend to be heavily minorities.


They leave dead people on the rolls, and then they pay people to vote those dead people four, five, six, seven, eight, nine times,” said Giuliani, one of Trump’s most prominent supporters, on CNN’s “State of the Union.” He added, “dead people generally vote for Democrats.


Cheating by Republicans is rare, Giuliani said. “They don’t control inner cities the way Democrats do,” he said.


Meanwhile, a Politico/Morning Consult Poll found that 41% of registered voters say that the election cold be stolen from Trump while 73% of Republicans fear the same. 

The American electorate has turned deeply skeptical about the integrity of the nation's election apparatus, with 41 percent of voters saying November's election could be "stolen" from Donald Trump due to widespread voter fraud.


The new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll -- conducted among 1,999 registered voters Oct. 13 through Oct. 15 -- shows that Trump’s repeated warnings about a “rigged” election are having effect: 73 percent of Republicans think the election could be swiped from him. Just 17 percent of Democrats agree with the prospect of massive fraud at the ballot box.



Per the Wall Street Journal, Trump running mate, Mike Pence, also blasted "monolithic support of the national media for Hillary Clinton’s campaign" but said his campaign would "absolutely accept the result of the election."

Mr. Trump for weeks has been preemptively exhorting supporters to monitor poll locations on Election Day, calls that have divided his GOP supporters. Asked about that on TV Sunday, Mr. Pence said those comments were an attack on the press.


“I think what Donald Trump is talking about is frankly what appears to be the monolithic support of the national media for Hillary Clinton’s campaign,” Mr. Pence said, adding in the same appearance, “We will absolutely accept the result of the election.”

Meanwhile, the Hillary campaign continued to just say "Russia" over and over again...

The Clinton campaign has neither confirmed nor denied that the material being posted by WikiLeaks is authentic. But her supporters have focused much of their ire on the leaks themselves. On Sunday, Mr. Kaine described the leaks as an effort to destabilize the election.


“Hillary and I stand up for the integrity of our elections. Hillary and I stand against Russian efforts to meddle in the American election,” the Virginia senator said on ABC.

...while Nancy Pelosi continued to make incoherent statements in which she seemingly confirmed that there is, in fact, a double standard in the media while also claiming that it shouldn't matter.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi  (D., Calif.) on Sunday was asked on CNN if there was a double standard in coverage of Mr. Trump’s alleged sexual misconduct and the longtime allegations of sexual harassment against Bill Clinton, which the former president has denied.


Well it is a double standard, but Bill Clinton is not on the ballot,” Ms. Pelosi said, an oft-repeated point made by Democrats since the issue emerged this week. “He is not on the ballot, he is not on the ballot. Hillary Clinton is the candidate for president that we are asking people to vote for.”

Buckle up, with WikiLeaks now coming under attack and stepped up rhetoric from the Trump campaign on election rigging it should be a very interesting week.

Well no shit.  She already stole the election from bernie.  The fact that they let a known traitor and felon walk free is what is shocking to me... unless they are all in on the game together.    Cancel that, I'm not shocked.

"73% Of Republicans Say Election Could Be "Stolen" As Trump Slams "Rigged Elections""

Im Thinking Trump May Demand that the Election be postponed, While the charges are investigated and remedies implemented ???

SoilMyselfRotten's picture

If 73% of Republicans actually stood behind him, he wouldn't have as much to worry about. The RNC should be bitch-slapped.

FireBrander's picture

Trump has NO ONE to blame for the loss than HIMSELF!

Rigged or not, she was easy to beat by a LANDSLIDE!

Trump is a political MORON...sorry, down vote me all you want, fuck you...it's the TRUTH. If you can't see, face, accept, the TRUTH, then when/if Trump LOSES, you are going to be "surprised" and cry "rigged"...BULLSHIT.

The Next Debate:

A> Fuck the Moderator.

B> Fuck Hillary.

C> Fuck the STUPID, WORTHLESS, SHIT fucken dumb "Questions".


Look the camera, the American people, in the eye and TALK TO THEM!

>Do you want war with Russia?

>Do you want 4 more years of Obama's policies?

>Do you want higher health insurance bills (DO NOT SAY OBAMACARE)?

>Do you want the 1000's of RICH people, many not even US Citizens, that have "donated" to Hillary in one way or another to "have a friend in Hillary" in the White House"?

>Do you want 100's of 1000's of "refugees" that the DIRECTOR OF THE FBI says there is NO WAY to 100% remove the ISIS TERRORISTS among them?

>Do you want a President who admits that it's necessary to, paraphrase, "have policy for public cosumption that is not the same as the private policy" that will be pushed?

>Do you want to continue to export our traditional Middle Class jobs to other countries?


The win is so FUCKEN EASY! There is NO EXCUSE for Trump to lose this election...NONE!

Chump's frail ego & the amateur campaign team lost against the vicious lying cheating corrupt manipulative cunton campaign megalith machine .   The only worse campaign was Mitt the Nitwit"s pattycake campaign against the fudgepacker. Isiots.

Trump hasn't lost yet.

Honest polling is showing a statistal tie with a slight Trump edge.

What is really interesting within the detail of the poll is every single one has 7 to 12% that say they are "undecided"...Trump supporters unwilling to admit? Or truly "undecided?

If they are truly "undecided", then Trump needs to aim for them at the next debate...we'll see if he can close the Deal.

Just to echo this, I got this link elsewhere this morning and watched it, it's worth the time.

Hard evidence on video of DNC operatives openly admitting violence at Trump rallies was staged by them, and that they pay mentally ill homeless people to do things to disrupt the campaign, and they admit to being behind specific well publicized cases. They also discuss coordination of dark money with the DNC.

Holy Shit. Is there no law in this country ?

That "Public, Private" policy deal...yeah, that REALLY smokes the Bernie folks...they are TIRED OF FUCKING "LIBERAL/PROGRESSIVE" liars! Tha is why they wanted Bernie; they thought he was the real deal.

Trump is no Bernie nor is he "Progressive", but he can remind the Bernie folks what a piece of shit Hillary is and that she'll sell them out in a heartbeat; maybe they'll decide to sell her out first? Good chance I say...

I recieved this in my email today about a new coin the Obama Admin is minting.  We are going to hell in a hand basket.

Did a bit a sheeple surveying with a mate of the missus round for a natter.

I asked her if she was aware that 300 million Russians believed they were on the brink of nuclear war with the US, and NATO (including ourselves) as a result?

That all Russian expat government workers had been told to send their children back to Russia?

Or that they are currently conducting civil defence drills involving 40 million civilians?

You guessed it.

Complete fucking blank.

Tempted as I was, I wasn't cruel enough to scare her about possible future interuptions to her fucking soaps or her husband's football.

And this ain't the US of A, so the conditioning is the same both sides - UK going to town on Trump and give the bitch a free pass. Same everywhere in Europe or any balance? These fucking tentacles run very deep and stretch very far.

FireBrander's picture

The bright spot in this is the EU will be the first place to be nuked...we have as many hukes in the EU as we have in the USA...and the USA will fight Russia in the ME and the EU first...and once the EU is leveled, we'll loan them the money to "rebuild"...very profitable "rebuilding" after a war...and out the other side will come two super powers...the USA and Russia...

300,000,000 Russians?  I believe that's about twice as many people as live in Russia.  But your points are well-taken.  Another point I'd make is that by all accounts, Russia spends between 80% and 90% less than the US on their war machine.

No it's not about mythology, it's about transcendance and morality.

Perhaps it is outdated, but to remove it now is Obama thumbing his nose at the majority of Americans

It is GOOD that the motto is being removed as it exposes the truth..


If you have ever watched the movie, "They Live", and looked at that bill through those spectacles the occult inscription, the hidden inscription, is, "THIS IS YOUR GOD."


Now read "In God We Trust".


Do you trust the US Dollar?

Do you place your faith, hope, and confidence in the US Dollar?

In God We Trust? Serving Mammon much?


Well they are just planning to replace the God which you have known and trusted with a new currency. That is why the motto is being removed. 


Those who have turned off their TEE VEE SETS can see this without any spectacles.

He needed to talk directly to the people the whole time and not get caught up in being on the 'defensive'. I think he knows that now and may do better going forward. He's sure laying it out on the road...

I up-voted u.

Trump is a political moron. He did not use and does not use all material, which is in public domain, against HRC.

He does not need media, to discuss every week another dead person from HRC's body count (as one example).

He does not explot Bill's affairs.

He takes a shit about their corruption.

He deserves to lose.

You're right.  When Trump first appeared as a serious candidate, he was saying things that needed to be said, which nobody else was saying.  His unorthodox approach, almost an anti-campaign, was exciting.  Unfortunately, his disdain for "politics as usual" has turned out to be a two-edged sword.  He's been waylaid by some of the oldest tricks in the book, and all his personal flaws are coming to the fore.

The main problem is his raging personal insecurity.  He simply can't resist the bait.  He can't apologize, he can't acknowledge mistakes.  He has to respond to each and every perceived slight.  Worst of all, and what has doomed his campaign, is that he only listens to people who already agree with him.  The article talks about 40% of likely voters expecting this election to be stolen.  That's about right.  Roughly 50% of Americans are likely voters, so 40% of them is about 20% of the eligible electorate.  That's Trump's base of support.  It was enough to gain him the GOP nomination; he was correct in that assessment.

Unfortunately for Trump, that 20% won't be enough for him to gain the White House.  Worse still, that 20% is somewhere between distasteful and utterly repugnant to the other 80% of eligible voters.  Trump needed to gain the support of those who see Hillary for what she is, but can't stomach the likes of David Duke and the Breitbart types, including James O'Keefe, Rudy Giuliani, Chris Christie, Sean Hannity, etc.

Trump has offered nothing but the back of his hand to anybody outside that 20%.  Had he engaged meaningfully with people who don't instinctively agree with him, he'd have mopped the floor with Hillary and be leading so obviously even the corporate media couldn't deny it.  He didn't do that and he's going to fail as a result.  Whether the election is stolen or not, over half the people in America will be somewhat relieved by Hillary's victory, though that feeling won't last through Christmas as we start to see the menagerie of troglodytes she staffs her Administration with.

FireBrander's picture

A+, and not a single cuss word:)


40% always vote D

40% always vote R

5% always vote other

15% decide the winner (lessor of Evil - LOE)


Trump has the 40% R, just needs 10% of the LOE.


PIECE OF CAKE!...especially against the extremely disliked, by many in her own party, Hillary.


You're absolutely correct with " raging personal insecurity"...he cannot pass up ANY fight...no matter how meaningless, if it offends him the slightest, he's shooting off his mouth and sending in the lawyers...beyond dumb.

It's a classic Tragic Flaw.

Slightly OT, I hate the misuse and over-use of the word "Tragedy."  Something really bad happening isn't a tragedy unless it was brought on one's self by one's flaws.  The tragic flaw can't be something superficial, either, like a temporary mistake or misjudgment.  It has to be a throughgoing personal trait.  More and more, the older I get, I find one of the most common personal flaws among humans is is insecurity.  

I used to come into contact with people whom I liked and trusted, yet in time found myself in conflict with them without realizing it, and I always came out the loser.  At some point I complained about this to a confidante, who told me that in the particular instance I scared the hell out of the person with whom I had a conflict, because she was very insecure about her own competence, while I treated her as if she were competent and confident, so she thought I was setting her up to expose her.  Of course, nothing could have been further from my mind, but the knife was already in my back (so to speak) as she protected her perceived weakness.

Now, having become aware of this, I still run into those people and I still have problems with them.  I've gotten a lot better at seeing this earlier, and usually moving out of situations where such people have control over me.  Not perfect, but better.  At least I have an idea where trouble might be coming from.

Insecure people do an incredible amount of damage to themselves and others.  Many of them are actually quite competent and capable of much good, but they don't let themselves.  Talk about a true tragic flaw.

Dear Firebander,

You shouldn't believe the mainstreampolls.

You should go out on the streets and find out for yourself.

Currently, Trump stands to win a landslide "of the cast votes"

Whether the result announced reflects that, we wait to see.

FireBrander's picture

The MSM Polls are often biased, but if you take the time to look into the details you can find the bias and remove it...and when I do that, this election is really a statistical tie.

...with one BIG wildcard...every poll is 7 to 12% "undecided"...stealth Trump voters of truly undecided...if they are stealth Trump, he's going to win big time..

...because there is no such thing as gerrymandering and you are certsain to get an unbiased sample in your geographical area?

I agree with Trump.


SINCE the elections are rigged, AND THET ARE,  then it follows that there is absolutely no reason to vote.
