i hate this polls, I want hillary! Be much better for Trump to run against crooked hillary then Sanders. I say keep her in it, who cares if she committed fraud - I only care about getting Trump to the white house.

Even though I do not want either of them in the white house I care a lot about voter fraud and stealing elections. If we are going to have that going on it seems were are move dictator oriented than democratic. Mark my words if she steals the election she will never step down from being president. She will be in the white house for eternity.

They make it seem like Trump is way off base with this but given what we have seen already this could definitely happen.

frankly, im not sure. who knows, maybe if that stupid violent mob attacking trump supporters would instead demand that the DNC be fair, they would do something. honestly, if an organization is acting in a corrupt manner like that, you will probably have to force them becasue they have already shown contempt for rules/fairness.

You're simply factually incorrect with that. Voter fraud has always meant multiple voting and impersonation. Clinton is not gearing up to steal the election through these methods, which are easy to spot in large numbers. She's going to try to steal the election through manipulating electronic voting machines and destroying/invalidating ballots.

Trump's aides chalked the controversy up to media bias and blamed Hillary Clinton's campaign -- even though the apparent plagiarism was discovered by an independent journalist and had gone viral before Clinton's allies and Democrats even weighed in.

Thursday's speech, then, wasn't a narrow foreign policy address. It was Clinton debuting her fundamental case against Trump — one that hit on exactly what makes so many people so uneasy about Trump's candidacy.

At a campaign event in Columbus, Ohio, Monday, Trump warned the crowd, “I’m afraid the election’s gonna be rigged, I have to be honest,” the second clause of his statement a tacit admission he was lying.

Since the DNC and Trumps major debacle of taunting a fallen soldier's family, I haven't heard much from him.

It is likely that Trump’s complaint about the general election being rigged was triggered by polls after the Democratic convention, which showed Hillary Clinton getting a significant post-convention bump that helped her surge into the lead.

You don’t have to believe that Donald Trump is deliberately trying to undermine the foundation of American democracy to understand how dangerous this is. In fact, you probably shouldn’t believe he’s doing this out of malice — given what we know about Trump, it’s more likely he’s engaging in some preemptive butt covering than trying to subvert the democratic process. (That would take work.) But as with so much else that Trump has done over the course of his campaign, he’s tapping into sentiments too powerful for him to control.

In a year when anti-establishment anger is running high, it’s an appealing message. In fact, there are plenty of people — dissident Democrats and Republicans alike — who don’t like Donald Trump per se, but who already believe the Democratic Party rigged the primaries for Hillary Clinton, or that Democrats are trying to rig the general election for her.

What do feminist legal theories contribute uniquely to legal theory and how can we best evaluate their assumptions with respect to the new insights that CLS proposes? Before commencing the detailed analysis of feminist legal methods, it may be useful to talk briefly about the relationship between feminist legal theory and CLS. At first glance, it may be argued that feminist legal theory has been built on the premise of criticizing the existing legal system. Feminists,

Donald Trump’s moment of humility didn’t last long. The billionaire businessman, still licking his wounds after a decisive loss in Iowa on Monday, is now crying foul, accusing Ted Cruz of stealing the election and calling for a do-over.

Trump’s camp has been publicly preparing an excuse for a possible loss; Trump adviser Roger Stone said in an interview that voter fraud is"widespread" and said if Hillary Clinton wins a state like Florida after polls show Trump in the lead, the election would be"illegitimate." He huffed,"If there’s voter fraud, this election will be illegitimate, the election of the winner will be illegitimate, we will have a constitutional crisis, widespread civil disobedience, and the government will no longer be the government.” Stone threatened violence, asserting there would be a"bloodbath" if the Democrats tried to"steal" the election:

I read his economic plan. He mentioned taxes and helping with child care expenses.

To me it sounds like Trump is pushing Reagan era trickle down economics.

Trump’s plan would cut taxes on the middle class, he said, though some economists predict the opposite effect.
The Tax Policy Center estimates Trump’s plan would add $9.5 trillion to the deficit over the next decade. If enacted, the plan would be the largest tax cut in modern U.S. history.

In calling for all child care expenses to be tax exempt, Trump's plan could go further than Clinton's. She has specified that she will be working to guarantee up to 12 weeks of paid family and medical leave for new parents and people who need to care for ill relatives, which would be paid for by her proposed tax surcharge on multimillionaires.

During the Republican National Convention, Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump appeared to preview her father’s policies focused on families.

“As president, my father will change the labor laws that were put in place at a time in which women were not a significant part of the workforce, and he will focus on making quality child care affordable and accessible for all,” she said.

This is Trump's first major policy speech since he laid out his national security plan in June. His plan also calls for a moratorium on new agency regulations, via executive order. And he would undo much of President Barack Obama’s climate change reform by rescinding the Climate Action Plan, the Waters of the United States rule and the Paris Climate Agreement (which aims to limiting global warming to 2 degrees Celsius) and halting payments of U.S. tax dollars to U.N. global warming programs.

Many of the themes in this plan echo a plan he released last September during a news conference at Trump Tower in New York City — including a call for the repeal and replacement of “Obamacare,” withdrawal from the Trans-Pacific Partnership agreement and a renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.

But noticeably absent were major spending cuts. Entitlements, military spending and debt payments — three areas that Trump mentioned previously and account for more than 70 percent of the federal budget — were absent. Meanwhile, he previewed infrastructure costs to come.

Having stolen the primary from Bernie Sanders, Hillary Clinton plans to use every trick in the book to steal the 2016 presidential election from Donald Trump.
