Google Influencing Elections by Flipping Votes on 'Massive Scale,' Researcher Claims

Search giant Google has been accused of manipulating American citizens to influence the outcome of the November midterm elections, according to a psychologist researcher.

Robert Epstein and his research team from the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology have been studying and monitoring online political content sent to voters in swing states.

The team is also investigating search engine results on Google and Bing tweets sent by Twitter, Gmail suppression, and auto-play videos suggested on Google-owned YouTube.

The study found over 1.9 million “ephemeral experiences” that Google was using to “shift opinions and voting preferences,” Epstein wrote in an article for the Daily Caller.

“Ephemeral experiences” is a term for short-lived content which immediately disappears without leaving a trace after user consumption.

As The Epoch Times reports:

The team expects such “ephemeral experiences” to number over 2.5 million by Election Day. Epstein has identified roughly a dozen new forms of online manipulation using ephemeral experiences, which are almost exclusively controlled by Google and a few other tech firms.

The impact created by the experiences is “stunning,” Epstein says.

Search engine results that favor one political candidate were found to influence undecided voters so much that up to 80 percent of such people in some demographic groups shifted their voting preferences after only a single search.

“Carefully crafted search suggestions that flash at you while you are typing a search term can turn a 50/50 split among undecided voters into a 90/10 split with no one knowing they have been manipulated,” Epstein writes.

“A single question-and-answer interaction on a digital personal assistant can shift the voting preferences of undecided voters by more than 40 percent.”

Ahead of the 2022 election, “a high level of liberal bias” is being seen in Google search results in swing states like Arizona, Florida, and Wisconsin, Epstein wrote. Search results from Bing did not indicate such bias.

In multiple swing states, liberal news sources make up 92 percent of auto-play videos being sent to YouTube users, which can potentially shift “hundreds of thousands of votes” on Election Day, he warned.

In 2020, Epstein and his team collected 1.5 million ephemeral experiences from 1,735 field agents who were “sufficient, in theory,” to shift over 6 million votes to Joe Biden’s favor. Epstein had supported Biden at the time, he said.

He found that Google sent more voting reminders to moderates and liberals than conservatives, which Epstein calls a “brazen and powerful manipulation.”

Google also “turned off all manipulations” in the 2020 Georgia Senate races after three Republican senators sent a letter to Google CEO Sundar Pichai, which discussed Epstein’s findings on manipulation (pdf). He pointed out political bias in Google search results “dropped to zero” after the letter.

In an April interview with EpochTV’s “American Thought Leaders,” Epstein also talked about online platforms using surveys to “help” users decide whom to vote for. In such surveys, users are given a quiz, and the platforms tell them how good a match they are for specific candidates.

In an experiment, Epstein’s team found that they could shift a significant number of people’s voting preferences to the candidate that was presented as their best match.

“Opinion matching is a fantastic way to manipulate people because you can shift people very, very, very dramatically, and they have no clue. They do not suspect any bias or manipulation.”

He added that 96 percent of donations from Silicon Valley firms, including Google, go toward the Democratic Party.

Democracy-hating leftists for voter fraud. Right out of the Democrat playbook.

Thomas Jefferson warned us
“once corrupted a republic cannot be repaired”
This is especially true in a banana republic with more in debts + unfunded liabilities (231 trillion) then total national assets (178 trillion with civilian assets included)

It will come down to secession (already on Texas legislative docket) or collapse followed by secession because a banana republic cannot be fixed, only seceded from or destroyed.

I still find it amazing that there are any undecided voters out there. Let me see I don’t like the current state of affairs in this country, in this state, in this county, in this city, in this community. Who are the people in power that are making these affairs so terrible? Well I guess we need to vote into office someone else to make it better. It’s just plain insanity to want more of what we have been being fed by both the left and the right the last 30 years vote all incumbents out after 1 term until they figure out who really is in charge.
