Burnett Pushes Carson on Trump’s Claims That Clinton Winning PA Would Involve Cheating

Screen Shot 2016-08-12 at 7.45.43 PMFor the past few election cycles, Pennsylvania has gone blue. Current polls show that Donald Trump trails behind Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in that state by a pretty wide margin. It will be surprising to very few if she wins the Keystone State in November.

Still, during a rally tonight, Trump claimed that if she wins, it will be the result of cheating, which a number of his supporters believe, too. On CNN moments after the proclamation, Erin Burnett grilled Trump supporter Ben Carson about the statement.

Carson kept trying to steer the conversation toward voter fraud and voter I.D. laws, both of which are hot topics right now. He didn’t seem to want to tell Burnett if he thought Trump’s claims went too far.

Watch above.
