Cohen hired IT firm to rig online polls in favor of Trump

Michael Cohen, a former lawyer for U.S. President Donald Trump, said on Thursday he paid a firm to manipulate online polling data at the direction and benefit of Donald Trump. Cohen had supposedly paid the data firm Redfinch Solutions to manipulate two public opinion polls in favor of Trump before the 2016 presidential campaign.

Well that was money wasted. I don’t remember EVER seeing a poll in favor of Trump until 2017.

online polls matter because? If you let an online poll influence your vote you must be some kind of stupid. With a link and a hash tag and and clearing of your cookies you can vote till heart's content, and thats without creating a bot.

Wow was he ever incompetent! Especially considering some polls had Trump with a single digit probability to win.

And here's another Mandela Effect. I'm from an alternate timeline where every single poll was in favor of Clinton. 😏

What a surprise. Scum bag lawyer making shit up again. What? This bit of information just happened to slip his mind earlier? That’s right, of course, FBI NEEDED TIME TO PLANT THE EVIDENCE. Bravo America, maybe we can pull that 3rd world reputation we have been working so hard for by spring. What has happened to honor and integrity?

“to boost [Trump]’s name in two online polls” how is this news? how many polls were there, hundreds? and i of course see no mention of everything the Clinton campaign bought out, including sites like THE ONION. this is such a non-issue. *correction: Clinton campaign didn’t buy the onion, but instead her ‘most generous donor’ had very heavily invested in it during the ‘16 election, and there was then a strong correlation between the time of the investment and the start of tons of pro-Clinton articles.

They were severely ripped off if this is true because there were no polls in favor of Trump once he was the Republican nominee. Actually, the polls were worse for him in the primaries. In a way, it makes sense that this might be true based on that fact alone. Trump often complained the polls were rigged. Obama then commented that they weren't rigged, Trump was just losing.

Anonymous "law enforcement" sources Eh? Buzzfeed eh? Honestly at this point, just focus on winning the next election. The Russia/Neo-McCarthyism thing isn't going to pan out.

Tell me why we are supposed to trust a man who supposedly has multiple felonies about those felonies, especially when he will probably do anything to reduce his sentence if any of them are true.
