Donald Trump is convinced the voting polls are rigged. So he's turning to his supporters to break what he calls a rigged election.
Trump's campaign site linked to a form to "stop crooked Hillary from rigging this election" by monitoring polling places (the link seems to have been removed). Anyone who sees anything that looks like fraud will report it to a group of lawyers, The Washington Post reports.
What they want to do is create a pretty select, Navy SEAL-type operation...This ain't your father's Cadillac.
The group is the Republican National Lawyers Association, led by Randy Evans.
If the disgusting and corrupt media covered me honestly and didn't put false meaning into the words I say, I would be beating Hillary by 20%— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 14, 2016
Trump has doubled down on the narrative that the election is rigged as his poll numbers slip.
He has also insisted the media favors Clinton, including this line at a Pennsylvania rally.
I hope you people can sort of not just vote on the eighth [but]...watch other polling places and make sure that it's 100 percent fine.
Anybody claiming there is widespread voter fraud, trying to suppress the vote, trying to keep people from voting, is a political coward.— Bernie Sanders (@SenSanders) August 9, 2016
Democrats like Bernie Sanders call talk of "voter fraud" a method of voter suppression.
And despite Trump's claims, voter fraud is extremely rare in the U.S.
