    With all of Trump's claims of the election is going to be rigged - what happens after he loses and claims he was cheated? What will his supporters do?

    Will he even have supporters by the time the election rolls around? Serious question.

    Mostly yell at the TV with Hannity on, write frustrated posts on reddit and watch porn.

    Dumbest thread of the week. And its only Sunday.

    What did all those racist Republicans do when Obama was elected? Should I look back and see if you were one of those who thought Obama would be assassinated because a racist wouldn't tolerate a black?

    I think no matter what happens there will be a scattering of protests. This election is one of the most negative in recent history and both candidates are viewed negatively even by many who are essentially on their own side ideologically. Those people protested at both conventions and I don't think they are going away.

    Put your thinking cap on and read the thread. This is about Trump claiming he is getting cheated.

    There has never been a situation where a presidential candidate is claiming the election is rigged. This is new territory. If his supporters feel the election process is rigged will they accept the result?

    There will be riots all over big liberal cities in the United States if Trump wins.

    There were riots in California just for Trump speaking there, now can you imagine what will they do if Trump wins.

    I guess I never considered the possibility of Trump winning because IMO it's not really possible, but I could see violent protests if he did win.

    Even if he lose narrowly, don't think there are enough crazy for any mass protest.

    Looking like it's not going to be a close race.

    With a landslide, instead of protest, it's going to be depress emotion and staying home.

    I expect all of our allies to sigh in relief.

    Nothing unusual will happen after the results are in, except for a party at my house and parties everywhere in the States and overseas celebrating Ms. Clinton's victory, a new Democratic majority in the Senate, and if Democrats don't take the House, a much narrower majority for the GOP. All of which will lead to far more getting done over the next 2 years than we've seen over the last 6. In my humble opinion. Oh, and we'll see numerous Federal court vacancies filled during Clinton's first year in office, including at least 2 seats filled on the Supreme Court. Cause for celebration!

    There could be, but seeing as we dodged bullets in Cleveland and particularly Philadelphia I think we'll be okay. There will be large concentrations of people in certain stations, so unfortunately I'd be worried about some more random-ass mass shootings.

    There will be much worse violent protest if Trump wins.
