    --Maybe they feel that by voting, at least, the nation will see their numbers, if only for a few hours. (Which is the only reason I will be throwing my vote away. Hopefully, there will be enough "no" votes, Third Party votes, and low turnout, that the Aristocrats will pick up on the anger out in "fly over country." I do not really expect them to, as History tells us, that the Aristocratic Elites tend to be pretty oblivious to the sentiments of common people, until the mobs are at their gated homes, and they and their families are about to be drug out into the streets....)

    --Maybe, they feel that it is their civic duty, regardless of the actions of the Aristocratic Elites.

    He said that only one in eight polls shows him winning, so he doesn't believe the seven, because he knows he's winning big! ...............or something....

    I agree. An Aristocratic Elite leader like Trump never should be believed when he says he is for the little people. He has absolutely no prior behavior that backs that up.

    the logic is to generate anger...vis, to try inspiring enough people to turnout in hopes of overcoming the rigging. it's sound.

    and it's not like Democrats will have experienced a moral epiphany between their rigging of the primary for Hillary and the general. so it's warranted.

    Trump's campaign is a "death spiral," the election doesn't need rigging for him to lose his ass...

    Thx

    Doesn't make sense, Rors. The vote total isn't going to "magically change". Say it's Georgia, and Trump has 530,000 votes and Hillary has 257,000 votes....and as they get to the last 500 votes....it's going to flip by 200,000 votes???


    And if that switch to Hillary comes EARLIER in the process....how can they claim it's "voter fraud" and not just the fact that Clinton won the State?

    ESPECIALLY if the vote tally comes in nearly IDENTICAL to the last polls???

    Impossible, webby. Trump is pre-declaring he's going to lose and that it's going to be due to "voter fraud". And that NO MATTER how many of his supporters turn out?....."Clinton and the Democrats will steal the election."

    If "turnout can overcome the rigging"....then it's not very good "rigging"...is it?


    Plus, Trump will say "it was stolen from me"...no matter how much he loses by. If he loses North Carolina by 250,000 votes...he'll claim 250,000 votes were "rigged" against him (regardless of the fact that North Carolina has a Republican Governor and a Republican State House).

    Even Rightwingers, except for a few delusional Trump Cultists.....KNOW what he's doing.

    He's making up excuses for an election he knows he's losing....to assuage his massive ego and inability to admit personal failure.


    They just have to PRETEND to go along with it....atleast for a while.
