Most Americans Doubt Tech Platforms Will Prevent Election Abuse: Pew Research

At the other end of the exclusivity spectrum, 74% in a sample of the entire U.S. population told the Pew Research Center that they had little or no confidence that companies like Facebook, Twitter and Google would prevent misuse of their platforms during the 2020 presidential election. We originally rejected this item when it was presented by Jamie in our Department of the Obvious, on the grounds that it wasn’t obvious so many people felt this way. He said what’s obvious is that the tech companies won’t prevent abuse. Good point.
