Poll: Over 80% of voters favor limiting power of Big Tech in the U.S.

Less than 10% believe it’s not necessary.

The vast majority of U.S. voters think that government should rein in the powers of Big Tech companies in the U.S., according to a new Just the News Daily Poll with Scott Rasmussen.

Just the News Poll, Limit Big Tech Companies?

Eighty-one percent of respondents said it was important “to limit the power of big tech companies in America.”

Just 8% disagreed, while 11% were unsure. 

Tech companies such as Apple, Facebook, Google and Twitter have come under increasing scrutiny about censuring third-party content — especially after Twitter permanently banned Donald Trump in the final days of his presidency.

Google and Apple recently suspended Parler, the alternative social media site to Twitter, from their app stores. 

Facebook and Twitter claimed that Trump posed the risk of inciting violence among his supporters, while Google and Apple argued that Parler was not doing enough to police violent content on its own servers.

Big Tech has also come under scrutiny for collecting data from users and limiting — or “silo-ing” — the content they see.
