Wouldn't make any difference to them. They know the poll is trash already because they made it with the flaw that allows for cheating. They are the ones who are guilty and accountable. You cannot hold the voters accountable because if it can happen it will happen. If voters can cheat, they will cheat.

It is never a bad thing to "cheat" in a poll that allows cheating. There's something similar in society known as "Gun control". With "Gun control", only the criminals will have guns. Also, to not cheat in a cheatable poll is like expecting a criminal not to commit crime because it is illegal.
If anybody wants to put blame anywhere, it should be squarely at the poll makers. If you don't cheat for your side, you WILL lose because the other side will cheat.
