The Blaze – Dr. Robert Epstein, author and senior research psychologist at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology in California, joined Glenn on Monday’s episode of “The Glenn Beck Radio Program.” They discussed how tech giants such as Google, Facebook, and Twitter are dramatically influencing millions of voters — without anyone noticing.
As a then-supporter of Hillary Clinton, Epstein wanted to find out if Google was being impartial in their search results during the 2016 presidential elections. He and his research team discovered that not only is technology being used to manipulate opinions, behaviors, and votes on a global scale, but they are also able to pull it off without leaving a trace.
“When search results favor one candidate, or one cause for that matter, it shifts opinions and it shifts votes. And I mean dramatically so,” Epstein said. “It can shift voting preferences among undecided voters by 20 percent or more easily, and up to 80 percent in some demographic groups.”
Epstein’s research revealed that even the most skeptical among us trusts that Google search results are unbiased, subjective, and impartial.
