Hopefully those early votes are from a simmering silent majority who have been disgusted with Trump's traitorous hate for America for the past two years.

I wish I found hope with the early voting turnout but experience has taught us that Republicans can and will steal election regardless of voter turnout. Republicans will not ever give up power willingly. Too much money and power involved.

Remember when the vote was rigged?

Until they won. Then it wasn't.

It seems like decades ago...

Mr Trump has questioned the legitimacy of the election process in a series of tweets, the latest of which said on Monday: "Of course there is large scale voter fraud happening on and before election day.

"Why do Republican leaders deny what is going on? So naive!"
An earlier tweet said: "The election is absolutely being rigged by the dishonest and distorted media pushing Crooked Hillary - but also at many polling places - SAD."

The White House candidate also tweeted: "Election is being rigged by the media, in a coordinated effort with the Clinton campaign, by putting stories that never happened into news!"

You don't have to go back that far, Donner. He's at it again right now, planting the seeds of doubt in case his party takes a beating. This is from earlier this evening:

Can you imagine any other president preemptively questioning the legitimacy of America's election process?
