Trump campaign launches drive to recruit 'election observers'

PoliticoDonald Trump's campaign is seeking to recruit "election observers" following the Republican nominee's repeated claims that the general election is "rigged."
In a move that's unprecedented in a presidential election, the campaign late this week launched a page on its website proclaiming, "Help Me Stop Crooked Hillary From Rigging This Election! Please fill out this form to receive more information about becoming a volunteer Trump Election Observer."
Those who wish to be a Trump "observer" are asked to fill out information on the website that should match their voter registration. Once submitted, voters are directed to a donation page.
Hours before the site gained traction Friday night, Trump said at a rally in Altoona, Pennsylvania, that the only way he would lose in Pennsylvania is "if cheating goes on."
“She can’t beat what’s happening here. The only way they can beat it in my opinion, and I mean this 100 percent, if in certain sections of the state they cheat,” Trump said of Clinton campaign in Pennsylvania.
You could say Bernie was just spring training for the DNC, or, in the other hand, if you are an "in the other hand" type of person, is this a preemptive election postmortem? Should Trump loose, he could say, 'See, I told you so. They rigged it.' I believe in the casinos, and in the money game Chelsey's husband plays, they call this hedging your bets? Maybe you guys can correct me on this.

This is why I love this guy.

He is not going to be a victim, he is not going to be a "gentleman".

Get people with their smartphones watching stuff, and it's just that much harder for the Demos to cheat.

BlackLives crowd wants to keep people away? Get that, too.

Yea Romney would have never said nor done any of the things TRump has done.

The acid test is in November.

We were living in Chicago the year Harold Washington beat Jane Byrne. There were fights @ my polling place when I went to vote, and fisticuffs @ polling places all over the city. I anticipate this nationwide.

Stoking resentment and dead-enderism in preparation for the aftermath of his very likely defeat.

Always helpful to a democracy. If you don't win, delegitimize the legitimate results.
