    http://www.dailydot.com/layer8/trump-clinton-debate-online-polls-4chan-the-donald/Donald Trump supporters artificially manipulated the results of online polls to create a false narrative that the Republican nominee won the first presidential debate on Monday night.

    The efforts originated from users of the pro-Trump Reddit community r/The_Donald and 4chan messaged boards, which bombarded around 70 polls, including those launched by Time, Fortune, and CNBC.

    He tweets:
    Such a great honor. Final debate polls are in - and the MOVEMENT wins!
    #AmericaFirst #MAGA #ImWithYou

    Perfectly plausible. I mean, just look at the preponderance of Trump trolls on this gay website alone. When full frontal attack failed, they tried the bovine idiot approach, then the profile-lite stealthy approach, then the "drink smoothies and vote Green" approach and now we have the "Brit recommending Brexit for the USA" approach. Whatever next?

    If it wasn't so amusing it would be insane. But, um, yeah, you've nailed that on all parts.

    How much ya wanna bet that should tRump lose, they slam Hillary for having paid off (or threatened) tRump. That he was on team Hillary the entire time. And they would say that as if there was some pride in having let themselves be duped.

    I really don't give a flying fuck about him making a mockery of the Republicans though I'd rather they'd have stayed intact--because I don't know what might birth from him fucking them--but I do care that he's made a mockery of American politics.

    No offense intended, but this is the bullshit that goes on in Europe. I'd never have guessed Americans would put up with this, never mind that the GOP--I guess out of no where else to turn--would embrace it. Yikes. My hope is in talking to some of our younger people, My brother's kids and their friends. They see through Trump and they're not so stupid as to vote for anyone but for who would defeat him, my nephew recently proudly displaying his voter registration card: DEMOCRATIC PARY, and that without us ever having done anything but encourage them to think for themselves.

    Meanwhile...

    You don't like the polls so claim they are rigged. Familiar theme.

    But who is the one who manipulates thread view counts and brags about ignoring everyone who causes butt hurtness? Answer: The most insane one. And being most insane among this group of left wing misfits is really an accomplishment.

    https://mic.com/articles/155258/who-won-the-presidential-debate-trump-or-clinton-4chan-trolls-rig-polls#.gsP3yDw8TThe 4chan users flooded the polls with Trump votes through the use of Airplane Mode Toggling. This involves switching airplane mode on and off to change your device's IP address so that you can essentially vote as many times as your heart desires. Other users also advised voters trying to game the system to open new incognito tabs repeatedly for limitless voting.
