Poll Update: 47% of you think Google should be investigated for antitrust

Earlier this week we reported that the F.T.C. is looking at a possible antitrust investigation against Google, over its DoubleClick acquisition. Our poll this week asks: Should Google be investigated for antitrust? I’m somewhat amazed to find that nearly half of respondants so far think that YES, Google should be investigated for anti-trust. At this point 47% of you think that.

42% say no, Google should be left alone. 11% of you don’t know either way.

There’s still time to cast you vote. Not that the F.T.C. is avidly following Read/WriteWeb’s poll (well, I guess that could be a reason for the delay). But seriously, what do you think? Is Google/DoubleClick a monopoly that the US government needs to crack down on?
