Election Fraud: Donald Trump says polls rigged in favor of Hillary Clinton.
In the recent past, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has been vocal about the US presidential election being “rigged” in favor of his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. Texas was an example where Trump said fraudulency was prevalent.
“A lot of call-ins about vote flipping at the voting booths in Texas,” Trump tweeted. “People are not happy. BIG lines. What is going on?” However, as reported by Politico, he has not offered any concrete evidence to prove his claims.
An investigation conducted by Action News with regards to Trump’s claims of voter fraud in the City of Philadelphia revealed findings that the media outlet said were “stunning.” Several people who had passed away years ago were found as active listed voters. One such voter was Joseph B. Haggarty who died in 2010, as evidenced by his grave marker, but was found to have voted for five years after his death; and Paul Bunch, who although had died in 2006 was found to have voted in this year’s primary.
