Who's the big winner, Mikey?

He loved those onine polls.

The real polls showed something different:

A Morning Consult poll released Wednesday found 49 percent of respondents thought Clinton won, while 26 percent though Trump won. Another 25 percent were undecided.

A Public Policy Polling survey found 51 percent thought Clinton won, while 40 percent thought Trump won.

Guess what?
Michael Cohen hired an IT firm to rig online polls in favor of Donald Trump ahead of the 2016 election and instructed the company to create the @WomenForCohen Twitter account to laud how sexually attractive he is, The Wall Street Journal reports.

Trump’s then-attorney—who has since spectacularly fallen out with the president—promised to pay $50,000 to the small tech firm run by a Liberty University staffer to help distort online polls on CNBC and the Drudge Report.

Cohen has confirmed the bombshell report to CNN, and claimed it was carried out “at the direction and for the sole benefit of Donald J. Trump.”

The report says that this effort was early in the campaign and wasn't very successful. I'd guess that Trump's digital director (and 2020 campaign manager) Brad Parscale was better at it.
