TechCrunch 這篇「Trump and Clinton spent $81M on US election Facebook ads, Russian agency $46K」講到 Facebook 目前階段所判斷出來，能夠識別是俄羅斯政府投入的資金，只有 USD$46K，相較於美國兩黨投入了 USD$81M 差了 1760 倍：
While there might have been other Russian disinformation groups, the IRA spent $46,000 on pre-election day Facebook ads compared to $81 million spent by Clinton and Trump together, discluding political action committees who could have spent even more than that on the campaigns’ behalf.
而俄羅斯投入的廣告散佈率超過 1.26 億的 Facebook 使用者，以及 2000 萬 Instagram 的使用者：
Facebook today said that the Russians still reached 126 million Facebook users, as well as 20 million Instagram users.
俄羅斯這團隊的水準真不賴... 只可惜大概沒辦法寫在 resume 上。
這個好讚，在告知安全漏洞後還是不更新選舉用伺服器，於是就被告了，而在被告以後選舉單位就把證據給幹掉 XD：「Georgia election server wiped after lawsuit filed」。
The lawsuit, filed on July 3 by a diverse group of election reform advocates, aims to force Georgia to retire its antiquated and heavily criticized election technology. The server in question, which served as a statewide staging location for key election-related data, made national headlines in June after a security expert disclosed a gaping security hole that wasn’t fixed six months after he reported it to election authorities.
It’s not clear who ordered the server’s data irretrievably erased.
在 The Economist 這邊看到圖表，比較 2012 與 2016 年投票的變化：「Who voters supported in the last American election compared with this one」。2016 美國總統選舉將在 11 月初舉辦，這邊是目前的情況。
這張圖表頗清楚的，雖然有些比例不太對... 可以看到兩大黨以外的票比 2012 增加了不少。
