As a new poll released Sunday showed Hillary Clinton with a lead in the presidential race, Donald Trump took to Twitter to tell the world that the election is “absolutely” being rigged “at many polling places,” THE DAILY BEAST reports.
While Trump has repeatedly tossed around “rigging” accusations in recent days, this marks the first time he took it to actual voting locations. Previously, he claimed the media was behind all the rigging at the behest of Clinton. Trump’s latest rigging accusation came shortly after he expressed astonishment that he’d lost the support of women voters in an early morning tweet-storm. “Polls close, but can you believe I lost large numbers of women voters based on made up events THAT NEVER HAPPENED. Media rigging election!” he said. Although rigging accusations are nothing new for Trump, he seems to be intensifying them as Election Day nears and his support wanes. His remarks came after his running mate, Mike Pence, said the pair would accept the outcome of the Nov. 8 vote.
