REVENGE IS SWEET: Breitbart Wails That Hillary’s Foreign Troll Army Ruined Their Post-Debate Click-Poll

But they give no admission that Trump’s trolls did the same thing to recent click-polls on many mainstream sites. Via Breitbart:

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has overtaken Hillary Clinton on a Breitbart debate poll, despite a stream of overseas Clinton bots skewing the results in favour of the Democratic nominee.

The original results of the poll were gleefully reported by networks such as CNN, who claimed the “far-right website Breitbart surprisingly had Hillary Clinton winning the final presidential debate by 6 percentage points early on Thursday.”

However, Breitbart can now reveal that the poll was actually infiltrated by foreign IP addresses, with thousands of votes coming from countries such as Romania, Germany and South Korea, who overwhelmingly voted for Hillary Clinton as the winner of the final presidential debate.

Yet despite the influx of Clinton bots, who managed to skew the poll into suggesting Clinton had a 6-point lead, Trump has since overtaken her, regaining an 8-point lead in a poll of nearly 300,000 people (and bots.)

    Their bubble is very thin. Just like Trump’s orange skin.

  • Boy Elvis

    Thank you, Breitbart, for reminding us that the bottom feeder suckholes who frequent your brain dead site prefer Trump. We couldn’t possibly have guessed.

  • Jeffrey

    Wow, what could be more unbiased than a Breitbart debate poll?

    • james1200

      I hear the Stormfront polls are even more accurate.

      • 2patricius2

        100% for Drumpf.

  • JaniceInToronto

    I’m so glad Breitbart is still dead. Hopefully his website will follow him soon.

    • SoCalVet

      Anger, cocaine and alcohol are a potent mix that can take you down.

      • JaniceInToronto

        Can we take up a collection to send a truckload of all three to their headquarters?

  • greenmanTN

    B-b-but y’all said online polls are as valid as scientific polls!

  • PickyPecker
  • ShawnSwagger

    Gee, I wonder what Trump said that would have motivated South Koreans to be pro-Hillary.

    The Germans just look at Trump and say, “We’ve seen this show before. We know how it ends.”

    • Steverino

      Well, Trump and his fawning adorers do resemble the politics and government of their neighbors just across the demilitarized zone to the north.

    • Acronym Jim

      Angela Merkel is saying “and I thought a shoulder rub from Bush was bad; I’m going to do everything in my power to keep this groper away from me.”

  • Rex

    Moral of the story: your polls mean shit.

    • Stubenville

      Not worth the electrons they’re printed with.

      • DonnaLee

        If it’s wasn’t free they wouldn’t do it, since Trump sure as hell wouldn’t pay for one. I’ve been getting Trump mailing about 3-5 times a week (I’m in PA), yet just one mailing from the Clinton campaign with ‘trump’ them all. Last one was about how most of Donald’s job creation has been overseas.

    • Oikos

      Thanks Obama!

    • Nowhereman

      Now THAT’s almost believable!

  • Texndoc

    I have no doubt the story will eventually be told that Trump met with all those kids (and that kook Bannon), paid them off, and the next day it was TrumpBart as we know it. After being just another right leaning website: Cruz wanted an illegal alien in every backyard, Christie was in the Mafia, and Marco Rubio was gay.

  • crewman

    Media companies/sites that use “polls” like this in any way whatsoever should be shamed, whether liberal or conservative. Even saying “this isn’t a scientific poll, but here are the results anyway” is irresponsible. In the absence of better information, people’s brains treat misinformation as accurate.

    • David L. Caster

      The quality of the information is not important. All that needs to happen is that whatever the stimulation, it just has to be repeated enough times and it will stick. The phenomenon is known as Cognitive Ease. It’s the psychological/biological mechanism of the Big Lie.

    • Nowhereman

      Our local paper has polls like these. You can vote as many times as you want…I just don’t get it. What’s the point?

  • Yixing’s Fluffer

    South Koreans have plenty of experience with clicker polls like these. They’re how T-ARA (my queens!) managed to beat Justin Bieber and One Direction in some frivolous popularity contest.

  • JT

    Wingnuts always whine about getting what they give.

    • DaddyRay

      They like to dish it out but can’t take it

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      The young Steve Bannon and Milo after Ben Shapiro would not share his birthday cake. Sad!

  • in America, we spell it “favor.” i wonder where the author of this piece is from, speaking of foreigners.

    • TrollopeReader

      the canadians are infiltrating our media!

  • PLAINTOM

    Breitbart is complaining because they only like Russians and North Koreans to vote on their polls.

  • And of course the only way they managed to flip the result back to Trump winning was by spamming their own poll. Like everything else with the far right it is a double standard, they are allowed to intentionally skew polls but if anyone does it to them they decide that it is not okay. they want to play by their own special set of rules and pitch a fit when others do the same things they do.

  • Rex

    Vote from Moose and Squirrel do NOT count!

    • Mikey

      Hey Rocky, watch me pull a rabbit out of my hat!

      • Rex

        I wouldn’t reach into that “Make America Great Again” hat, no telling what you’ll pull outta that!

        • Mikey

          “Hey Rocky, watch me pull a rabid out of Trump’s a$$” ?

  • StraightGrandmother

    This falls into the, ‘two can play at this game’ scenario.

    • Lakeview Bob

      Exactly but these morons will forever claim that the democrats are dishonest for doing his but will never remember their own dishonesty. Such stupid ignorant people.

  • sherman

    Trump’s October surprise is out – he just released his memoir, sure to captivate the nation and sweep him to victory:

    Poor little Krybaby Breitfarters, need to curl up and retreat to their safe space.
    Nasty “libtards” have unfairly targeted then with radical leftist microaggressions. Sad!

  • Pollos Hermanos

    I’m still prepping for “Operation Disqus” on Breitbart on 11/9.

    The comments there on that day are going to be a lot of fun.

    • Dreaming Vertebrate

      aka – Operation Breitbart Butthurt

  • edrex

    yay! I helped.

    • DaddyRay

      So did I

      • kareemachan

        [raises hand]

        Although I made the mistake of reading some comments there. Dang, they have a serious case of capitalletteritis going on there.

  • Dan Robinson

    They apparently fail to notice that claiming their poll was so easily skewed demonstrates the uselessness of the poll whichever way it goes.

    • Rambie

      That’d require them to be self aware.

  • boatboy_srq

    1) Sad trombone for the “unskewing” of their poll.

    2) Funny how they forget that US citizens travel, that there are thousands who are outside the country at any given time, and that foreign news sources are at frequently better than the US’ own domestic services (even CNN International is a whole different critter). What makes them think that JUST because the IP is outside the US that the entry HAS to be fraudulent? Travel or international residency doesn’t prohibit voting (or having an opinion).

    • teeveedub

      Everything else on their little hate site is fact free. So why should we trust them to report that foreign bots caused the surge in Hillary votes?

  • Bruno

    Brietshart tRumpanzees send bots to rig mainstream polls: “We’re winning!!!1111!!1”
    Others send bots over to Breitshart to rig their poll as a teaching moment: “It’s rigged!!!!111!!11!1”

  • Ray

    It’s was going to read the Breitbart article but when I got to the page I was sidetracked by a breaking story about how Donald was SHOCKED to learn that Ivanka was taking an amazing skinny pill that helped her lose weight.

  • Stubenville

    The only “poll” that matters is held on November 8th. And no bots can skew that one.

    Voting is crucial!

  • Cuberly

    So they’re bot-hurt, with votes?

    How demented does one have to be to work there, it boggles the mind.

    • Stubenville

      Or financially desperate.

  • kelven

    Posted this on the Steele thread by mistake. A lesser known but applicable song.

      I despised that album the first five or six listens when it was released. But then I realized that it was supposed to be cold, unfeeling, and sarcastic, as opposed to the warm, emotional feel of their previous works, and I fell in love with its brilliance.

  • SFBruce

    So some whiners think their little poll, which is completely unscientific and therefore meaningless because anyone who wants can participate, is even more meaningless because they don’t like the group who decided to participate? Cry me a river.

  • 1Truth1

    A non relevant poll that is the only thing these losers can claim victory for.

  • The_Wretched

    Just an idea, maybe websites shouldn’t do click polls. They create disinformation, everyone is stupider for it existing.

    • Ross

      Breitbart creates disinformation; everyone is stupider for it existing.

  • bob

    These polls are so scientific. Vote, clear history, vote, clear history etc. etc !

  • petewestcentral

    “Pussy Power at Trump Tower” is also hilarious and great.

  • Duane Dimitrov

    I thought the GOP had learned its lesson after the “unskewing” bullshittery of the last presidential.

    I guess the lure of self delusion is just too great.

  • GanymedeRenard

    Of course.

  • CB

    The idiocy of this makes my head hurt. Takes nothing to change results if you put up the poll.

  • Jean-Marc in Canada

    Freepers hate it when their own tactics are used against them.

    • BudClark

      There’s only ONE poll that MATTERS: the number of ballots cast for each candidate on Nov. 8th.

  • Slippy_World
  • TheManicMechanic

    They can claim Hillary uses “bots”, yet Breitbart relies on 400 pound “butts.”

  • Marti386

    Well, that’s the problem with “click polls” on websites. They’re not really reliable gauges of anything.

    I notice Breitbart had no problem with that unreliability when they thought it supported Trump, though.

  • Bert_Bauer

    Conservatives doing the only thing they do well: Whine.

  • NMNative

    MSN polls always show Trump doing better than Hillary. I have no doubt that those polls have been freeped. Just like some we’ve done on this site. It’s why I don’t tend to trust polls.
