Poll: Three-Quarters of Americans Think Big Tech Avoids Regulation by Influencing D.C.

Three-quarters of Americans believe that big tech companies avoid regulation by having too much influence in Washington, DC, according to a poll released Tuesday.

Americans across the political spectrum, or 75 percent, overwhelmingly believe that big tech companies such as Amazon, Facebook, and Google spend “tens of millions of dollars on political donations and lobbying” to avoid government regulation. They also believe that big tech companies have too much influence in D.C.

The survey also found that 69 percent of Democrats, Republicans, and Independents believe that these big tech companies have too much power, which puts smaller businesses and consumers at a disadvantage.

Likely voters across all parties also believe that big tech companies such as Amazon are known to purchase smaller companies to prevent competition from smaller companies and allow big tech to unfairly increase consumer prices for goods and services.

All voters also believe that big tech companies should not be able to purchase smaller companies, which could harm competition and consumers. This includes 62 percent of likely Republican voters.
