Trump in Columbus: Afraid Election Will Be 'Rigged'

If you have been paying attention to not only the election, but the Trump supporters online, you know that should he lose in November absolutely none of them will be blaming themselves or Trump. Mostly, they’ve been pre-blaming any Republicans (or recently former Republicans like myself) for not showing up. That’s often done in the same breath they use to proclaim they don’t need our votes. Now Trump has resurrected the “rigged” complaint he was using all through a primary he boasts about winning easily. This is surely an attempt to woo Sanders voters, but it’s probably also a sign that the candidate’s bravado and internal polling aren’t quite in sync.
