A supporter of Donald Trump on Tuesday predicted "civil war" if Democratic nominee Hillary ClintonHillary Diane Rodham ClintonAttorney indicted on charge of lying to FBI as part of Durham investigation Durham seeking indictment of lawyer with ties to Democrats: reports Paul Ryan researched narcissistic personality disorder after Trump win: book MORE is elected.

A woman attending a rally with the GOP nominee's running mate urged Indiana Gov.

"If Hillary Clinton wins the election ... and she's on that Second Amendment, taking your guns away, there is going to be a civil war in this state" or elsewhere in the country, the woman who identified herself as Brenda predicted, to some applause in Albuquerque, N.M.

"But, if President TrumpDonald TrumpOhio Republican who voted to impeach Trump says he won't seek reelection Youngkin breaks with Trump on whether Democrats will cheat in the Virginia governor's race Trump endorses challenger in Michigan AG race MORE would win," the woman continued, to hollers from the crowd, "there's also going to be a war, because Obama is going to pull that martial law on the United States."
"Brenda, Hillary Clinton is not going to be elected president of the United States," Pence responded. "It's not going to happen."
The Vice presidential contender spoke of Trump's crowd sizes, referencing the woman's earlier point about his standing in polls, and dismissed polling showing Clinton ahead.
"There's only one poll that matters, and it's the one they finish up on Election Day," he said.
Pence continued with the campaign's theme of swiping at the media, saying the news is "focusing on semantics" with Trump lately and ignoring "misdeeds" concerning Clinton's tenure at the State Department.
"I have to turn on the TV with a stick these days," Pence said.
He went after Clinton's speech last week on the economy, calling it boring, and called her unfit to serve as commander in chief, slamming policy decisions during her time as secretary of State.
He also stressed "rule of law," "sanctity of life" and the Second Amendment as reasons to ensure Trump makes the next Supreme Court appointments, not Clinton.
With Clinton, Pence stated, "you better get used to more unelected judges making unconstitutional decisions with unaccountable power."
The real estate mogul sparked a political firestorm last week by suggesting "Second Amendment people" could stop Clinton from appointing liberal judges if she were elected president.
Another Trump supporter, Steve, 72, noted his Social Security check hasn't increased in three years. He also asked why Clinton wasn't in jail.
Pence stressed the need to support a plan to get the economy to "move again" and indicated he was dumbfounded that Clinton didn't face charges for her use of a private email server.
The Indiana governor also defended Susana Martinez, the Republican governor of New Mexico. Trump changed his tune and sought her support earlier this summer after criticizing her at a rally in her home state, which roiled GOP officials.
"Susana Martinez is a very dear friend of mine, she's a great governor, she's done a great job for New Mexico," Pence said to a smattering of boos in responding to a man who asked about the "unprecedented number" of Republicans deserting their White House ticket.
Pence argued the number of Republicans supporting their ticket "vastly outweighs" those not supporting them.
