As Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump urges his supporters to be vigilant against widespread voter fraud and a rigged election outcome, we speak with Ari Berman, who argues in The Nation, "This Election Is Being Rigged—But Not by Democrats." He says the true danger to American democracy stems from Republican-led efforts to make it harder to vote.

The article is essentially all wrong... it's the standard defense people keep putting up for Hillary. On an evil scale, she pretty clearly beats Trump. (But Trump is massively incompetent, so that's really besides the point.) It's incredibly clear that neither should be President, but people still keep trying to justify choosing them.
