Trump disputes CNN polls while warning of penalties for illegal voting

President Trump railed against CNN "Fake Suppression Polls" in a Monday morning tweet, and later warned that illegal voters will be subject to the "maximum criminal penalties allowed by law."

So funny to see the CNN Fake Suppression Polls and false rhetoric. Watch for real results Tuesday. We are lucky CNN’s ratings are so low. Don’t fall for the Suppression Game. Go out & VOTE. Remember, we now have perhaps the greatest Economy (JOBS) in the history of our Country! ... Law Enforcement has been strongly notified to watch closely for any ILLEGAL VOTING which may take place in Tuesday’s Election (or Early Voting). Anyone caught will be subject to the Maximum Criminal Penalties allowed by law. Thank you!

Why it matters: On the eve of the 2018 midterm elections, a number of CNN polls have shown Democrats ahead by double digits in a generic congressional ballot.
