Seventy-eight percent (78%) of voters believe tech companies like Twitter, Facebook, and Google could swing the results of the election to benefit their preferred candidate. A Scott Rasmussen national survey found that just 10% found that prospect unlikely.
The totals include 47% who say it’s Very Likely they could swing an election and just 3% who say it’s Not at All Likely.
Eighty-two percent (82%) of Republicans believe the tech companies could swing an election. So do 82% of Democrats.
The survey also found that 62% believe technology companies have too much influence on our politics and political campaigns. Just 6% say they have too little influence. Nineteen percent (19%) believe the level of influence is about right.

The online survey of 1,000 Registered Voters was conducted by Scott Rasmussen on June 24-27, 2021. Field work for the survey was conducted by RMG Research, Inc. Certain quotas were applied, and the sample was lightly weighted by geography, gender, age, race, education, internet usage, and political party to reasonably reflect the nation’s population of Registered Voters. Other variables were reviewed to ensure that the final sample is representative of that population.
