Donald Cannot Lose


There is some speculation that, if Donald loses the vote count and the Electoral College this November 8, he will declare that the results null and void.  The speculators say that he will claim the election has been rigged against him.

To quote the New York Times:

After the 2012 contest, which Romney lost by nearly five million votes, Trump said: “This election is a total sham and travesty. We are not a democracy.” The last statement, judging by the groundwork he’s doing for this November, looks more like a self-fulfilling prophecy.

I think that is going too far, but the possibility is titillating: Donald loses, declares the election illegitimate, and organizes his supporters for an overwhelming campaign of civil disobedience or to put it more correctly, an insurrection.  Not really possible, but an entertaining thought nonetheless.
