Poll finds Americans eager to regulate Big Tech
The approval ratings of America’s biggest tech companies are all underwater, according to a new poll released Wednesday.
Facebook, Twitter, Microsoft, Google, Apple and Amazon all had net unfavorable ratings in the survey conducted by Change Research on behalf of the progressive groups CAP Action and Public Citizen.
A majority of respondents also showed an openness toward regulating and even breaking up the companies.
“I think the honeymoon phase of the American public with Big Tech is over,” Public Citizen’s Jane Chung told The Hill.
The release of the poll comes as Congress works to iron out its strategy for taking on the country’s biggest tech companies.
