Dems can win Pennsylvania only 'if they cheat'

Dems can win Pennsylvania only 'if they cheat'

"Given the catastrophic impact that Donald Trump's losing presidential campaign will have on down-ballot Senate and House races", they write, "we urge you to immediately suspend all discretionary RNC support for Trump and focus the entirety of the RNC's available resources on preserving the GOP's congressional majorities".

Trump went on to say that "the only way" he can lose in Pennsylvania is if there is cheating.

"We're gonna watch Pennsylvania", Trump said.

Trump, who said recently he didn't "know that we need to get out the vote. I know. 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". An independent poll released this past week by Marquette University found Trump down 15 percentage points among likely voters in the state. "Go down to certain areas and watch and study and make sure people don't come in and vote five times because if you do that ... we're not going to lose".

He said Clinton's campaign is smart to keep her out of the spotlight.

"I was anxious about that from Day One, when he was going against 16 other guys", he said.

Republicans who have devoted their professional lives to electing GOP candidates say they believe the White House already may be lost.

"First of all, it [the primary season] was rigged, and I'm afraid the [general] election is going to be rigged".

The poll found Clinton widening her lead in Colorado, Virginia and North Carolina, while holding her advantage in Florida.

It was the same tactic he used to try to quell criticism after he invited Russian Federation in late July to dig up tens of thousands of "missing" emails from Clinton's time as USA secretary of state.

Although Trump's claims about electoral fraud may be unprecedented for a national politician in the modern era, the Republican Party has faced legal pushback in the past for its attempts to have poll watchers similar to what the Trump campaign is now requesting from its supporters.

Donald Trump offered a fatalistic assessment of his personal and political future on Thursday, saying he will not abandon the controversial style that fueled his ascent despite lagging poll numbers and a string of damaging controversies. The former USA senator and first lady's lead over Trump has widened in national polls, alarming Republicans and buoying Democrats in a state where a Republican has not won the presidential race in 28 years.

While U.S. presidential candidates are not required to release their tax returns, it has become a common custom, and Clinton's tax returns have been made public, in some form, every year since 1977.

Trump has cited an audit by the Internal Revenue Service in refusing to release his returns.

Trump's campaign says things are moving in the right direction, a position that itself feeds the discontent among his GOP detractors.

Trump scheduled a speech in Warren, Ohio, on Monday that will focus on how he would handle the threat posed by Islamic State.

Also in July, Trump said that late Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was "so good at killing terrorists."

Trump has drawn criticism from Democrats this week for falsely claiming that Obama helped start the notorious extremist group.

Some credit that strategy for Trump's avoiding devastating unforced errors, such as his tussle with Khizr and Ghazala Khan, the Muslim-Americans parents whose son, U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan, was killed in Iraq in 2004.
