I Pretended To Be A Trump Supporter On Omegle And Here's What Happened

"Who's going to pay for it!?" "Idk"

Posted on

So I decided to try to get to know some of these people by interacting with them on the nexus of the Internet: Omegle!


Launched in 2009, Omegle is an online anonymous chat website where you are randomly paired with a "Stranger" and can talk about whatever you want.

It didn't entirely go as planned. It went one of a few different ways:

* Stranger immediately disconnected with me

* Stranger ignored my profession of love for the Donald and asked me to have cybersex

* Stranger responded with a rude remark


* Stranger actually did agree with me

But the real reason I did this was to get a better look inside the minds of Trump supporters...

But I am really excited that I did get to meet a couple die-hard Trumpians who have a lot of passion for the Donald's ideas...

"Now the Trump is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Trump is, there is freedom."

In the end, here's what happened:

In my very informal survey (go to for real data journalism please) of 50 different Omegle users—that is, non-robots:

* 23 immediately disconnected

* 2 tried to flirt with me

* 9 agreed with me

* 13 disagreed with me

* 3 were indifferent

A lot. It reminded me of an old Winston Churchill quote. "The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter."

Yikes, America. It's a long road to Cleveland*

*The 2016 Republican National Convention, in which delegates of the Republican Party will choose the nominee for President of the United States in the 2016 national election, will be held in July in Cleveland, Ohio.
