A day at the circus
For the first time in 28 years, Gallup finds 36% of those who saw/read about the GOP Convention are more likely to vote for Trump, but 51% are less likely to do so.
Those who saw/read about the Democratic Convention 45% more likely to vote for Clinton, v. 41% who are less likely to do so.
At a Monday campaign event in Columbus, Ohio, Donald Trump teed up for a potential challenge to the integrity of the fall general election, an escalation of his rhetoric about the "rigged" primary system.
"I'm afraid the election's gonna be rigged, I have to be honest," Trump told the crowd.
Which is not exactly a new line:
It was a line of attack that longtime Trump adviser Roger Stone pushed on a podcast with Breitbart's Milo Yiannopoulos that was posted online Friday. Stone suggested voter fraud is "widespread" and said if Hillary Clinton wins a state like Florida after polls show Trump in the lead, the election would be "illegitimate."
"If there’s voter fraud, this election will be illegitimate, the election of the winner will be illegitimate, we will have a constitutional crisis, widespread civil disobedience, and the government will no longer be the government," Stone said. He also promised a "bloodbath" if the Democrats attempt to "steal" the election.
Sure there will.....
