Here was Trump’s tweet of all the online polls that he “won:”

According to The Daily Dot, the reason why Trump won the online polling but lost every other poll was that a large ring of Trump supporters rigged the vote:
In this latest incarnation, multiple Reddit users enlisted the Trump-supporting masses on r/The_Donald, which has over 200,000 subscribers, by posting dozens of online polls that are vulnerable to vote brigading, bots, and other forms of manipulation that make these non-scientific surveys notoriously unreliable.
The goal, according to comments surrounding the poll-manipulation threads, is to twist the mainstream media narrative that crowned Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton the victor. The effort spread to Twitter, where #TrumpWon became the number one trending topic in the United States Tuesday morning.
Trump supporters were flooding the online polls in a coordinated effort to make the press and voters think that they really didn’t see Donald J. Trump fall flat on his face while attempting to debate Hillary Clinton. The fix was in, which is why no credible news outlet reports on, or trusts online polls.
Fox News has been pushing Trump’s victory in the rigged online polls, which says more about Fox than it does the organizations who choose to place unscientific polls on their websites.
Any poll that is open to the public can be easily manipulated, and should not be trusted as a valid source of information.
Even the rigging of the online polls can’t hide the fact that Donald Trump lost the first presidential debate.
