By inserting negative search suggestions under the name of a candidate, search engines like Google can shift the opinions of undecided voters by up to 43.4 percent, according to new research by a team at the American Institute for Behavioral Research and Technology and reported exclusively by Breitbart News.

This research showed that the manipulation of results pages in search engines can shift the voting preferences of undecideds by anywhere between 20 and 80 percent, depending on the demographic.

Why be shocked? This is typical criminal activity by the blue collar gangstas. This is how they took over all levels of government t/o the nation back in the 1930’s and 40’s. So what else?
