“Why Trump wants his supporters to monitor the polls in ‘certain areas'”

The Christian Science Monitor:

But Trump appears to have encouraged crowds in rural Pennsylvania this weekend to become polling station watchdogs. But he didn’t elaborate on what they should watch for, only that they should “watch carefully, because we’re going to win the state of Pennsylvania,” according to The Washington Post.

In August, Trump repeatedly said that without tougher voter ID laws like the one a federal appeals court struck down in North Carolina because they found it discriminatory, voters could vote 10 or 15 times for his opponent, a claim Politifact, a project that fact-checks political statements, labeled “pants on fire.”

He has also claimed dead voters handed President Obama the 2012 election, and suggested undocumented immigrants “just walk in and vote” in some polling places.
