Trump has a real chance to win, depending on the turnout. Then he states the election is rigged. He simultaneously discouraged his followers from voting and fired up Clinton supporters. He also supplied Clinton with a great issue. What am I missing?

Sounds like you're just not trained in the art of persuasion, unlike Trump and the Dilbert guy.

He doesn't want to win, just start a media empire called Trump TV to compete with Fox News which currently has a monopoly on the alt-right crowd. And really, the rightwing crowd in general.

It might work, a lot of them are mad that Fox isn't pushing too hard for Trump (because a lot of their major players don't like Trump).

I can guarantee you there will be a very good turnout for him.

Better start rigging... hard.

Eschewing obfuscation is not his goal.

You're adorable.

You should see if you can help Karl Rove out on election night! He's going to need extra reserves of insane optimism to bs for a few hours how Trump could still win it when he will likely lose Utah and Arizona....

Spin baby, SPIN.

I really, really need these people to stick around RSP after the election.

The whole thing is #RIGGED including Republican governors and Republican secretaries of state over maybe 6 or 7 swing states, the media #RIGGED the whole thing by quoting Trump's own words at him instead of attempting to interpret him like Real Americans, Obama #RIGGED it by telling Trump to stop whining, O'Keefe is a real journalist STOP LAUGHING HE SO IS SHUT UP...

You'd think, after becoming the Washington Generals of politics, they might want to ease off the gas pedal a bit.

Nah.

They trashed a major American political party, threw an election in the toilet, denied basic facts, and did some lasting damage to our electoral process, but at least we had some laughs, right?

Algore, Kerry both made the claim.

Democrats still froth at the mouth about the 2000 election. Gore still claims he was cheated.


That has nothing to do with election rigging but a disagreement over how the votes were counted. SCOTUS ruled on that.

It is agreed by all and joked about about by many that big-city elections in the past were rigged. But somehow that is all in the past? Politicians are more honest today?


What are you talking about? Tammany Hall?

Look, the Republicans control most of the State governments. Which means they control the state election boards. So how are the Democrats going to rig those elections?

The amount of wisdom that one must bask in, driving around a cab all day... in Alaska. The dignitaries, scholars, and impressive minds to which Koldie is exposed explains his accurate and insightful worldview.

People are going to vote at polling station A then go home put on a costume and make-up and go to polling place B, wait in line for 45 minuets to vote the second time. They'll do this then over and over until they've voted 10 or 11 times.

To put icing on the cake the thousands of multi-voter cheaters will keep silent about the conspiracy for generation after generation, just like the "moon landings"... PffT!

'GIT OFF MY LAWN!!

It makes complete sense if you don't think about it.
