米国大統領選 恐怖のトランプ支持者?

October 24, 2016

 21日の激戦州ノースカロライナ州の集会ではトランプ氏は「投票日まで一生懸命動く。そうすれば勝とうが負けようが引き分けようが、私は満足するだろう」と語った。

 

 

トランプ氏は、前日の20日には大統領選で敗北した場合、その結果を受け入れず、法的措置も辞さない立場を示した。

 その発言と比べると。今回の発言は強気と弱気が交錯するトランプ氏の複雑な内面をうかがわせる。

 トランプ氏は19日の最後の直接対決となったテレビ討論会も劣勢で、米メディアの3回の討論会の評価は「3連敗」。世論調査の支持率も女性蔑視発言以降、伸び悩みである。

 怖いのは“トランプ支持者”。米NBCテレビが21日発表した世論調査によると、共和党支持層でトランプ氏が敗れた場合に「結果を受け入れない」と答えた人は45%に上り、「受け入れる」とした人は53%だった。民主党支持層ではクリントン氏が敗北した際、82%が「受け入れる」と回答。「受け入れない」は16%にとどまった。

 

 トランプ氏の主張が支持層に一定程度受け入れられていることは分かったが、これでは選挙の意味もなくなってしまう。支持者層での対立が始まれば米国の活力は失われる。

Trump hit for talk of challenging 'rigged' poll

WASHINGTON -- Democrats and fellow Republicans alike denounced Donald Trump's talk of challenging the outcome of next month's U.S. presidential election -- a contest he insists will be "rigged" -- to the dismay of those who fear trouble from the real estate mogul's more fervid supporters.

President Barack Obama, speaking Thursday at a rally for Democratic contender Hillary Clinton in Florida, called Trump's comments "dangerous." Republican Sen. John McCain, who ran unsuccessfully for president in 2008, said accepting the outcome of an election "is an act of respect for the will of the American people."

Trailing in opinion polls, Trump vowed at a rally in Ohio on Thursday to "totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election -- if I win." He also said he would reserve his "right to contest or file a legal challenge in the case of a questionable result."

Trump's comments recalled the 2000 presidential election, in which Republican George W. Bush's narrow victory against Democratic rival Al Gore in Florida became the focus of litigation that delayed confirmation of the winner by about a month.

In his final televised debate against Clinton the night before, Trump would not commit to accepting the result of this year's election. More generally, he failed to mount an effective comeback after losing support over derogatory remarks about women. Various U.S. polls put Trump's chances of winning at 1% to 13%. Trump tweeted a claim Thursday that "Crooked Hillary" had unfairly obtained the debate questions.

Some worry such accusations will radicalize some Trump supporters. When a Republican party office in the state of North Carolina suffered an apparent firebombing on Oct. 16, Trump blamed "animals" representing Clinton. Bad blood between the two candidates' camps could become a lingering source of political turmoil after the election.
