Reuters/Ipsos Poll: Half Of Republicans Would Reject Election Result If Clinton Wins

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Donald Trump has repeatedly called this year’s presidential election rigged and has coyly said “I will keep you in suspense” on whether he would accept a Hillary Clinton victory, but many Republicans are less circumspect, according to a new poll.

Only half of Republicans would accept Clinton, the Democratic nominee, as their president. And if she wins, nearly 70 percent said it would be because of illegal voting or vote rigging, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll released on Friday.

Conversely, seven out of 10 Democrats said they would accept a Trump victory and less than 50 percent would attribute it to illegal voting or vote rigging, the poll showed.

The findings come after repeated statements by Trump that the media and the political establishment have rigged the election against him. He also has made a number of statements encouraging his supporters to fan out on Election Day to stop illegible voters from casting ballots.

Democrat pollster Pat Cadell said no way Trump behind more than 1 or 2% in states where media says 7 to 12% it's all rigged he says and he's a democrat.

Rasmussen pole has always for years the pole to watch and was considered the most accurate. No News media, Fox, CNN, MSN and MSNBC talks about this pole. They are using liberal pole results. If they mention it they have maybe a sentence and try and debunk. They have Trump beating Clinton

It seems obvious to me this election, if not yet rigged, there is a concerted effort to rig it by the media, democrats, POS's in the white house, and other people we can see or not.

Wouldn't it be fun IF killary did win and there were riots and chaos in our streets? Boom, a perfect excuse to implement martial law and whatever else is up their sleeves.

And I will go so far as to say, if there were NO riots or chaos in the streets with a klinton victory, this country would shortly be not worth living in. For the common folk anyway.

It has to be rigged since she's already claiming victory calling Trump a sore loser just this past week. She's gonna "chill at home ...and rest" rather than all out campaign. So she thinks it's in the bag.
