What is it with conservatives and conspiracy theories and faking desired results?

This happened last week with someone faking Hillary Clinton's health records. The photoshops or faked documents spread over the right wingo-sphere like news of a two-headed goat.

And this week someone decided to post fake, totally fake, results of an "internal, restricted access" Florida PPP poll to Scribd. The "poll" shows Trump has 74% of the vote total in the Sunshine State, and (I am not making this up, but they are)....

The fake poll says 94% OF DEMOCRATS expect Donald Trump to win the Presidency.

A woman on Twitter named Susan Reaney decided she would check on the validity of this poll with @ppppolls. Because she had to know!

And she made sure to send it to ALL the important news outlets, like Breitbart.

PPP Polls didn't know what to say. Oh yes they did.

But Susan wasn't done, again making sure that the major news outlets were looped in on this important convo:

Susan says "GOTCHA PPP Polls!" because they did not deny its authenticity.

I think at this point the PPP people were tweeting more in sorrow than in anger:

By now anyone would think you'd stop digging, right?

And now, they're done over at PPP Polls.

Whoops, turns out if you actually read the fine print on the fake PPP Poll that is fake, there are some giveaways that it's actually fake.

Which leads to some really IMPORTANT questions:

Which leads to disappointment...

They neither CONFIRM nor DENY that they have Martin O'Malley grade weed.

And finally, this.

Has anyone ever said conservatives willingly blind themselves to the obvious?

Can you help us out?
