Evangelist Franklin Graham on Thursday requested prayer for President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence and urged Christians not to give up, saying the Republican ticket could still win re-election.
Election experts say Trump faces an uphill climb for a second term due to yet-counted early ballots in Pennsylvania, Georgia and Arizona. Nationwide, Democrats were more than twice as likely this year to vote early rather than on Election Day. According to an October Gallup survey, 62 percent of Democrats said they planned on voting early compared to only 28 percent of Republicans. The 34-point gap was a Gallup record. Republicans were more likely than Democrats to vote on Election Day.
Trump, speaking from the White House Thursday, said Democrats were trying to steal the election.
“If you count the legal votes, I easily win. If you count the illegal votes, they can try to steal the election from us,” Trump said. “… We’ll not allow the corruption to steal such an important election, or any election for that manner. … They’re trying to rig an election and we can’t let that happen. Detroit and Philadelphia, known as two of the most corrupt political places anywhere in our country, cannot be responsible for engineering the outcome of a presidential race, a very important presidential race.”
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, appearing on Fox News, supported Trump’s position.
“You have a group of corrupt people who have absolute contempt for the American people who believe that we’re so spineless, so cowardly, so unwilling to stand up for ourselves, that they can steal the presidency, and we’ll wring our hands, bring in a few lawyers and do nothing,” Gingrich said.
