    Pro-Hillary Academic Claims Google Manipulated Millions of Votes for Hillary in 2016

    Pro-Hillary Academic Claims Google Manipulated Millions of Votes for Hillary in 2016

    Trump: “Wow, Report Just Out! Google manipulated from 2.6 million to 16 million votes for Hillary Clinton in 2016 Election!”

    There’s been a lot of noise surrounding Dr. Robert Epstein’s research that suggested that Google manipulated a “rock bottom” minimum of 2.6 million votes toward twice failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton in 2016.

    President Trump tweeted about it, the leftstream media went into “fact checkmeltdown mode, and Democrats, including Clinton herself, parroted Google’s claim that Epstein’s report was “debunked.”

    Powerline reports:

    Dr. Robert Epstein is a psychologist, professor, and author. He’s the former editor-in-chief of Psychology Today.

    Dr. Epstein is a liberal Democrat. In testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee (see below), he described himself as a “vocal public supporter” of Hillary Clinton. He said that to characterize him as not a Republican and not a conservative is “an understatement.”

    Epstein testified that in the 2016 election, Google generated a minimum of 2.6 million votes for Clinton through deceptive manipulation of search results. He warned that if, in 2020, companies like Google and Facebook all support the same presidential candidate (as surely they will) they could affect up to 15 million votes, e.g. by “go vote” reminders sent only to those believed to be Democrats.

    . . . .  Epstein isn’t just a respected psychologist. He’s a liberal who supported Hillary Clinton. Epstein has no political interest in arguing that her vote total was inflated through manipulation.

    The parallel claim cannot be made when it comes to those who argue that Russian efforts on social media swung the election to Trump. To my knowledge, those who advance this theory are all Democrats and/or Trump haters. They have a strong political interest in claiming “we was robbed.”

    Last month, Epstein testified before the Senate on Google search engine manipulation.

    Watch his exchange with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX):

    President Trump, upon learning of Epstein’s research, tweeted:

    Epstein also took to Twitter to tweet his thoughts about Hillary and Google.

    Hillary called out Epstein in her response to Trump and claimed that his work had been “debunked.”

    Epstein responded on Twitter and on the Tucker Carlson show.

    Well let’s sort some numbers out here. Hillary supporters claim she won the national popular vote by three million people. She won the popular vote in the State of California by four million people.

    She lost the popular vote in the rest of the country by one million people. I don’t know where the 2.6 million votes swayed or manipulated by Google were cast. Certainly some large number of those “Google votes” were cast in California. But when you spread what’s left over after California into the other states, Hillary’s thumping in the electoral college would have been a lot worse–but for those votes.

      Imagine the state of high dudgeon the liberals would be in if they learned that G and FB helped skew the results of the election to DJT by influencing the votes of only a small fraction of 2.5 million voters. It’s not the number or the results, it’s the fact that it happened at all.

      Now imagine if the results were skewed by Bechtel, Exxon, or GE, instead of G and FB. Think the liberals would say “They have a right to influence the election”?

        DaveGinOly: Think the liberals would say “They have a right to influence the election”?

        They do have a right to influence the election. However, there are a number of laws to reduce undue influence. And people have the right to complain about large corporations and their undue influence, but the complaint about Google is not well-supported.

        Google listings emphasize links that are linked, weighted towards conventional sources, and weighted towards what is a hot topic. For instance, if you type in “Google” into Google, the first suggestion is “did google manipulate the 2016 election”. The first listings, however, are several conventional sources rejecting Trump’s contention.

    Let’s start taking odds that Dr. Robert Epstein will commit suicide in the not too distant future…[sarc]

    Along with “Don’t be evil (for some value of “evil.”)”, recall their old motto: “Organizing the world’s information.”

    They didn’t say for who’s use or advantage.
