White Hats Report #53 - October 3, 2016

White Hats Report #53 – PollMole, will it prevent a stolen election in 2016?

As November 8 quickly approaches, we’re reminded of a quote attributed to Josef Stalin, “It’s not who votes that counts, it’s who counts the votes.” Or a similar one attributed to Boss Tweed, "Those who cast the votes decide nothing; those who count the votes decide everything.”
Every four years and to a lesser extent, every two years, we are bombarded with “polls”, polls to tell us who the voters approve of, polls to tell us what the important issues are, polls to give us the latest trends and polls to tell us who will win a particular election, whether it be national or local.  There are two categories of polls, the ones in which the results are released to the public and the ones that are private.  This distinction is important to delineate as the public polls have primarily one purpose when it comes to candidates and that is to give the voters a heads up on how the election will turn out. Or in the  famous words of Turd Blossom himself, Karl Rove, to “create our reality.”
