With voter and polling place fraud on the rise it has done more than raised a lot of eyebrows. Now, more and more people are showing concern for a rigged election (Trump now, and possibly Hillary later). Many Americans still plan to vote, but less feel that their vote is secure or matters. It seems like citizens must allow the idea of a rigged election into their perceptual fields. That takes us into dangerous territory. In the history of the U.S.A, has anyone ever certifiably proven that a presidential election was rigged?

I think people confuse election fraud & a rigged election. They are not necessarily the same. Clinton rigged her primary by bribing all the super delegates.Trump's reference is to the system being rigged, which has been demonstrated already
How did she "bribe" the super delegates. They were following the rules of the DNC.
We don't know who is voting in our elections, and in Ca they are not allowed to make any kind of checks on who is voting. So with 11 million illegal immigrants how do you know if they or other non citizens are voting. The courts are political
Knowing human nature &what people do to get power or what they want it's extremely naive for anyone to think there is no election fraud. eg http://www.timesunion.com/local/article/Democrat-a...
Our very nation depends on our votes and our participation in the elections. Not even the Koch brothers can buy enough votes to sway an election.
As I said in my answer here, you don't need millions of fraudulent voters to sway an election, you really need to pay attention.
The question is has there ever been proof? What's your proof?
The 1960 election was Kennedy vs. Nixon. That was a very close election, but I do not think it was rigged. I have seen no evidence showing that the elections were rigged. If an election does not turn out as you like, does not mean it was rigged.
Can you explain the difference between a rigged election and a stolen election?? Thanks.
A rigged election is an election where the rules and/or practices of collecting and counting the votes are rigged to benefit one side or the other(eg super delegates that can be bought).Any election won by cheating or fraud is a stolen one
That is true but the best example of rigging an election is the Democrat party's implementation of "super" delegates. Just google [Hillary bribed super delegates] and you'll find multiple sources describing how she bought delegates!
