Was the Drudge Report Poll Attacked by Clinton Shills?

Drudge Report’s heavily conservative audience usually votes party line in the site’s post-debate polls. After the first debate, Donald Trump won the poll with 80%, same with Mike Pence in the VP debate — a dramatically different take from that of the Mainstream Media.

But for some reason this debate was different, with Trump only winning with about 65%, despite the media overwhelmingly agreeing he had a stronger debate showing than in the first debate.

So what could explain the almost 15-point difference? Are a large number of Drudge readers suddenly “with her”? Or is there something more sinister at play?

The folks at 4chan are immediately blaming the discrepancy on Correct the Recordthe pro-Hillary super PAC which planned to pay an army of shills to argue for Clinton on social media and manipulate online discussion.


Observers noted that the poll was over 80% last night in favor of Trump, before falling dramatically.

This thread on Reddit’s r/the_donald claims Trump was at 90% before he dropped down to 57% in just 3 hours.

Based on witnesses of the dramatic polling manipulation, the attack was either automated or required a large amount of people to do it manually.
