Trump Predicts A ‘Rigged’ Presidential Election

Donald Trump declared Monday that he might not be able to win the presidential election because the process is biased in favor of Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, Business Insider reported.

“I’m afraid the election is going to be rigged,” the Republican candidate tweeted. “I have to be honest. I think my side was rigged (in the GOP primaries). If I didn’t win by massive landslides ... I hear more and more that the election on November 8, can you believe, we’re almost there.”

Referring to the Democratic nominating process, in which Clinton defeated Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, Trump wrote: “First of all, it was rigged.” Many Sanders supporters agree that the Democratic National Committee manipulated the party’s primaries and caucuses to help the former secretary of state secure enough delegates to clinch the nomination.

According to Business Insider, no other White House hopeful in recent memory has suggested they could lose an election because it was rigged. The allegation is not a new one for Trump, who claimed that the Republican establishment tried to derail his campaign in favor of Ted Cruz by awarding most of Colorado’s delegates to the Texas senator.

According to RealClearPolitics, which calculates the average of several national polls, Clinton leads Trump by 2.2 percent. That is within the margin of error.
