Voters Support Breaking Up Big Tech, Open to Twitter and Facebook Alternatives that Prioritize Free Speech
(Austin, TX—March 9, 2022) Convention of States Action, in partnership with The Trafalgar Group—one of America’s most accurate pollsters in 2016, 2018, 2020, and 2021—is releasing the results of a new national survey. Results were from surveys conducted February 18th through February 20th of over 1,000 likely 2022 election voters.
“In an era where almost nothing is bipartisan, voters are absolutely united in the conviction that the era of Big Tech’s runaway dominance must come to an end. While the left, right, and center agree with splitting up the titans of the tech industry for different reasons, Americans are united in our conviction that runaway monopolies becoming too powerful need to be reigned in. Congress clearly has an issue that it can move forward with, and for the good of all the people should do something about this immediately,” said Mark Meckler, President of Convention of States Action. “The private sector can also realize its impact immediately on this issue. A stunning 60 percent of the country says they’d be inclined to support alternatives to Facebook and Twitter that prioritize free speech. There’s a massive market opportunity out there for savvy entrepreneurs."
