However, user “Mysecondaccoubnt_2” noticed that the original post’s title — “Trump 47-Clinton 42” — did in fact match the topline of the JMC poll included in the corresponding link.

Multiple other users on the thread noted it isn’t out of the ordinary for the /r/politics moderators to take down posts that aren’t overtly anti-Trump.
