The Trump campaign and democracy's future 34 MIN, 31 SEC

Reporters are being heckled at Trump rallies by supporters who say Trump will win in a landslide and openly talk about violence and “revolution” if he doesn’t. Yesterday, Mike Pence insisted the campaign will accept the results if it loses, but high-level Trump surrogates echo his claim that the election is being “rigged.” Polls show that Trump might lose in a landslide, with heavy damage to his own Republican Party—and the confidence of millions in the democratic process.
