Elections

Excuse me but I really don't get it.
How does one powerful nation interfere with the elections of another powerful nation? Is it an electronic thing or a matter of agents convincing the public who to vote for?
I guess I'm a bit misinformed but wondering how Russia or any other nation can manipulate the óutcome of a democratic election in the US.
Maybe RD could explain.

They falsely posted on formats like facebook etc creating fake accounts that spread malicious gossip and absolute falsities that fitted in with the mindset of people that wanted to believe it. Nowadays many people only watch Fox News simply because the lurve the Pres. I only watch CNN.... apart from the BBC, cos I can't stand his lyin backside. But if you target Black groups, Jewish groups, right wing born again Christian groups, and send them a message they are willing to follow, you have just distorted the election process.

There are a myriad ways they could and did do it.
