    How can someone utilize blackhat techniques when running for an elected position? This thread isnt about politics but marketing for campaigns.

    I can only think of 3 things a blackhatter could do to increase chances of victory.

    1. Clickbomb your competitors ads so that their campaign finances for this are depleted faster.

    2. Create multple blogs posting about why people should vote for you,but make them under different names.

    3. Get yourself a large majority in the news polls so that possible voters will think you are more popular and will more likely vote for you.

    With a bot you could increase the views of a campaign video and make it more popular so that it increase in popularity and more organic views would occur.
