The latest poll finds two-fifths of voters say the election may be “stolen” from Donald Trump because of widespread voter fraud.
A POLITICO/Morning Consult poll finds that 73 percent of Republicans and 17 percent of Democrats think the election could be taken from Trump.
Trump has repeatedly questioned whether or not the election is rigged against him on the campaign trail.
Just three days ago, Trump blamed the media for rigging the election.
“The corrupt media is trying to do everything in their power to stop our movement. They don’t want this happening,” he charged.
“This whole election is being rigged,” Trump stressed during a recent campaign rally in North Carolina. “These lies spread by the media without witnesses…are poisoning the minds of the electorate.” Trump also Tweeted:
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!

The POLITICO/Morning Consult poll found 60 percent of voters say it is right for Trump to question the election results.
“The results show that voters are increasingly losing confidence that votes around the country will be counted accurately on Election Day,” cofounder and Morning Consult’s chief research officer Kyle Dropp stated. “The sentiment especially rings true among Trump’s supporters, with half expressing concern about a ‘rigged election.'”
Forty-three percent of voters say they plan to vote early.
The POLITICO/Morning Consult poll questioned 1,737 likely voters from Oct. 13 to Oct. 15. It has a plus or minus two point margin of error.
