In Mexico, we’ve heard all about electoral fraud. And the view here is that Donald Trump’s recent accusations of “rigged elections“ and his ambivalence about conceding defeat will do him more harm than good.

Pippa Norris has argued in the Washington Post that Trump’s allegations will probably depress voter turnout for him on November 8. I bet that’s true. But odds are also high that Trump is already looking beyond defeat, setting his sights on a project that will capitalise on the audience he has attracted over the past year.
