- Hillary Clinton has been hit by hackers, Anonymous
- They claim that records show that Clinton is paying off major news corporations to skew online polls in her favor
- This is allegedly to demoralize Trump supporters
Anonymous, the largest legion of hackers in the world, decided to investigate the online polls and figures released by major news corporations, such as NBC.
They found it strange that although the figures announced show Clinton with a sizable lead on Trump, actual attendance at respective rallies reveals a vastly different picture.
Trump rallies manage to draw tens of thousands of people, whereas most of Clinton's can't even fill half of the space in the venues.
It is alleged that by manipulating the polls, Clinton would be able to demoralize Trump supporters, meaning that they would then vote for her while thinking that the majority of Americans must be right in supporting her.
Poll figures can also be skewed by sample sizes, leading questions, or population selection based on the desired responses.
