A plausible scenario, actually. Nobody thought people will vote for Brexit or Trump in that large amounts, so nobody bothered to hack and troll the online platforms. That was (is) the anti-EU crowd and anti-...whatever Trump stands for' specialty.

Brexit and even Trump came as a surprise. I remember reading about people voting for Brexit as an anti-British establishment vote while thinking Brexit will never win. So indeed, trolls, bots and hackers are the other side's modus operandi. Fake news too.
I remember the UKIP press office denying Farage would be addressing a Trump rally... and I was astonished to see that Channel 4 news didnít have anyone covering the non-Hilary side on election night!
