Trump Encourages His Supporters to Patrol Polling Places, Says He Will Lose Pa. Only If There is Cheating

There are no depths to which this man will not sink.

Quote on patrolling to avoid fraud:

“So I hope you people can sort of not just vote on the 8th, go around and look and watch other polling places and make sure that it’s 100% fine because without voter identification, which is shocking, shocking that you don’t have it. Many states get it approved and some states they don’t get approved. And I have still—I’m supposed to be a smart person. I have still, I’ve yet to understand how you cannot approve voter identification in some form right?”

Of course every state has some form of voter identification—the question is whether to limit it to a strict set of identifications many people (especially poor and minority people) don’t have.

On Pennsylvania:

“The only way we can lose, in my opinion, I really mean this, Pennsylvania, is if cheating goes on. I really believe it,” he said Friday during a rally in Altoona, Pa.

Trump said law enforcement and his supporters have to be on the lookout for voter fraud to keep Trump from getting “cheated out of a win.”

“That’s the way we can lose the state, and we have to call up law enforcement and we have to have the sheriffs and the police chiefs and everybody watching,” he said.

“The only way they can beat it, in my opinion, and I mean this 100 percent, is if in certain sections of the state they cheat.”

Update: Here’s the video. The language of “certain sections of the state” is code word for “urban” areas with large concentrations of minority voters. We hear this about Philly, Milwaukee, etc.
