According to a new poll published by the Washington Examiner/YouGov has found that three out of four registered voters think that social media companies have way too much pull and influence over the kind of news that users see and read, with a large swath of the population believing these companies are politically biased.

The poll found that nearly 76 percent of individuals surveyed thought that social media companies have far too much influence, compared to a measly six percent who thought they had too little. A scrawny 11 percent said they have just the right amount of influence.

Trending: Multiple Republican Governors Just Ended Their State’s Mask Mandate (Details)

These results come after social media giants Facebook and Twitter suppressed sharing a story about emails purportedly obtained from a computer belonging to Hunter Biden that could create political problems for his father, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, shortly before the election. Republicans have charged Twitter and Facebook with making an “in-kind contribution” to Biden’s campaign by preventing users from sharing the news on their platforms. Conservatives have been pressing Senate Republicans to hold hearings on the social media companies’ handling of this story soon.

In the same poll, the public is split on the question of whether the former vice president has been honest about his son’s business activities in other countries.

A plurality of registered voters, 39%, believe social media bans have been biased against the Republican Party. This includes a huge majority of Republicans at 82% and a plurality of independents at 37%, though only 6% of Democrats agree.

“Another 20% of registered voters believe that social media is biased against both parties. This includes 28% of Democrats and 26% of independents, though only 6% of Republicans agree,” W. James Antle III wrote in his report.

“Just 9% think social media content bans are biased against Democrats, with 2% of Republicans and 6% of independents agreeing. Even among Democrats, this figure stands at only 15%,” he continued.

Lots of individuals who participated in the survey stated they supported Congress stepping in and regulating social media companies to help curb potential bias, with 55 percent saying they should go for it, while 25 percent said not to, and 20 percent who weren’t sure.

This same poll found that 69 percent of Republicans support those kind of actions being taken.

A total of 57 percent said that social media platforms should only restrict content they know for sure is false.

At the end of the day, this should send a message to those in charge of social media companies. Stop pushing your own political agenda. You’ve become the public square of our day and age. Be fair and balanced, allowing everyone to have a voice without being censored.

Didn’t Orwell write in “1984” about people being forced to wear masks so everybody would be deemed equal, meaning nobody could be called good looking or ugly? Has anybody made this comparison yet? Food for thought. Anyway, another Republican governor is finally doing the right thing. From Breitbart: Alabama will become one of the next states to eliminate a government-imposed mandate that requires people wear masks in public, sources close to the matter told Breitbart News. A source familiar with state deliberations confirmed that as soon as Friday but definitely in the coming days. Alabama will join several other states nationwide in removing its mandate requiring masks in response to the coronavirus pandemic. https://twitter.com/willainsworthAL/status/1367214634231619584?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367214634231619584%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fpolitics%2F2021%2F03%2F03%2Fexclusive-sources-alabama-to-join-texas-mississippi-florida-others-in-eliminating-mask-mandates-this-week%2F Check out Biden’s response… https://twitter.com/NBCNews/status/1367192228762963971?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367192228762963971%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Fvideo-biden-calls-texas-mississippi-governors-of-neanderthals-for-ending-mask-mandate%2F The governor of Mississippi fired back… https://twitter.com/tatereeves/status/1367204994458521616?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367204994458521616%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftexas-mississippi-respond-to-biden-neanderthal-remark-about-their-decision-to-reopen And so did Texas Governor Abbott… https://twitter.com/GregAbbott_TX/status/1367243450140086274?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367243450140086274%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Ftexas-mississippi-respond-to-biden-neanderthal-remark-about-their-decision-to-reopen As you’d expect, Democrats aren’t pleased.

Don’t let Joe speak! Even Biden’s handlers know he isn’t quick on his feet – or in public, in general. We’re talking about a guy who hasn’t held a single solo press conference since becoming POTUS. Check this out, via Daily Wire: Pressure is mounting on President Joe Biden to hold a solo press conference after he has set a modern-day record of 42 days without holding one. Even left-wing publications like CNN are calling out Biden for his lack of transparency, with host Jake Tapper tweeting: [CNN reporter Kevin Liptak] notes that an analysis of the past 100 years shows President Biden’s 15 most recent predecessors all held a formal solo press conference within 33 days of taking office. Biden has not and it’s day 42.” LOOK: https://twitter.com/AZachParkinson/status/1367171678036451333?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1367171678036451333%7Ctwgr%5E%7Ctwcon%5Es1_&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2Fquestions-mount-after-biden-sets-modern-record-with-no-solo-press-conferences And here’s the clip from Wednesday where the White House feed cuts out after Biden says he’d be happy to answer questions… https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1367303322697400322
