When it comes to accessing the Internet, adults across America feel they have many options for doing so, and are strongly opposed to government regulation of online search functions. Those are the primary findings of an IBOPE Zogby International poll commissioned by the 362,000-member National Taxpayers Union (NTU), a nonpartisan citizen group. The poll was conducted between March 2nd and 5th, covering 2,007 respondents with a margin of error of +/- 2.2 percentage points.
“These poll results could not speak more loudly or clearly: across numerous demographic categories, Americans firmly believe the marketplace for finding information online is highly competitive,” said NTU Executive Vice President Pete Sepp. “Equally important, the overwhelming skepticism they’ve voiced over government intervention in this marketplace should serve as a warning to policymakers who are pursuing burdensome federal investigations of online search practices.”
