Democrats are down but not out in the midterm election.
Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer have one secret ally in their quest to maintain their majorities in the House of Representatives and the Senate.
And you won’t believe the Democrats’ secret plan to rig the next election.
When Americans think of Big Tech censorship they think of Twitter and Facebook banning Donald Trump and his supporters for questioning the liberal narrative on the vaccines, the 2020 election or origins of the coronavirus.
But there is another equally insidious form of censorship the tech giants impose.
Forty-four percent of Americans use Gmail as their primary email address.
That makes Google the number one source of potential email donors for political online fundraising.
And a new study from North Carolina State shows Google rigs the game for Democrats.
The study showed Google marked just 10 percent of fundraising emails from Democrats as spam while flagging 77 percent of email appeals from GOP candidates as spam.
Spam is Death Valley for online fundraisers.
Americans rarely check their spam folders and the number one email service provider boosting Democrats’ fundraising by sending 90 percent of their emails to the inbox folders provides Democrats with a huge leg up on Republicans.
Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel, National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Florida Senator Rick Scott, and National Republican Congressional Committee Chairman Minnesota Congressman Tom Emmer issued a joint statement blasting Google for ideological censorship of Republican fundraising emails.
“Big Tech has been silencing conservative voices and actively working against Republicans for multiple cycles. Google’s e-mail suppression – which affects the GOP’s fundraising and GOTV efforts – is another egregious example. Silicon Valley oligarchs are suppressing free political speech,” McDaniel, Scott and Emmer’s joint statement read.
Google – not surprisingly – attempted to deny what was obvious to anyone that was paying attention.
“Political affiliation has absolutely no bearing on mail classifications in Gmail and we’ve debunked this suggestion, which has surfaced periodically from across the political spectrum, for many years,” a Google statement read.
Google claimed Gmail adjusted to users’ preferences.
“Mail classifications in Gmail automatically adjust to match Gmail users’ preferences and actions. Gmail users can move messages to spam, or to any other category,” the Google spokesperson continued. “Gmail automatically adjusts the classifications of particular emails according to these user actions.”
But this comment is bunk.
If conservatives aren’t seeing Republican fundraising emails because 90 percent are going to spam there is little chance for them to open the emails and click on the links, which are actions Google would use to send the emails to the inbox.
Republicans argued that from 2019 to 2022 Gmail censoring GOP fundraising appeals cost GOP candidates over $2 billion in contributions.
Fundraising is not the ultimate decider of elections.
The candidate and their message still matter.
But if Google blocks Republican candidates from raising the money necessary to put their message in front of voters, then Democrats enter the campaign with a huge advantage.
