This is worrisome, especially considering that a lot of Trump's supporters are armed.

This made me feel physically ill, when Trump said that last night at the 3rd debate. I couldn't believe that he was actually doing it.

I am worried of what might happen if he loses. His supporters are not the brightest and believe every stupid far fetched lie that he tells them.

Let's not forget that these people have guns.

Retired SCOTUS justice Souter warned of this very thing as a result of what he terms, "civic ignorance".

See this short clip:

Too bad the schools don't have room for classes in civics anymore and Souter was dead on with his comments from just a few years ago. It does seem that there is a lack of understanding the workings of govt., etc. and when I see some programs who ask questions of random people about simple things like who the VP is, and such...and they don't know or can't even make a guess. It's a worry about how many who are eligible to vote...don't, too.

I'm not so sure if you can really say it's the lack of Civics classes. A lot of these people are lawyers, people of business, or old enough to have been in a Civics class.
