Trump: If GOP Takes My Nomination, Supporters Won't Vote

Donald Trump says a lot of his supporters are first-time voters who will feel disenfranchised if they think the Republican presidential nomination has been stolen from him.

And if that happens, he told ABC's "This Week"  on Sunday, they won't vote in November.

"We do have some people that have never voted before," Trump said. "I don't know what's going to happen. You'll have a lot of very unhappy people. I think for the Republicans to disenfranchise all those people. If that happens, they're not voting. And the Republicans lose."

Trump earlier predicted riots if he gets to the convention with the largest delegate count, but is denied the nomination in a contested convention.

He said Sunday he would urge his followers not to riot if he loses the nomination fair and square.

"You know, look, these people are fervent," he said. "They want to see positive things happen for our country. I would certainly say that. I don't want to see riots. I don't want to see problems."

Trump said talk by some Republicans of running a third-party candidate if he does win the nomination will only turn the presidency over to the Democrats. And that will result in four or five "super liberal" justices on the Supreme Court.

"Our country will never, ever will be same," he said.

Trump said he wasn't questioning Mitt Romney's religion in a recent statement asking Utah voters if the 2012 nominee who has come out against him was really a Mormon.

"I said it in a joking way," Trump said, adding that "The Mormons are very smart people. I don't think Mitt Romney is a smart person. I never have thought he was a smart person."
