According to a recent nationwide NBC News survey, most Americans declare they use social media at least once a day, but they still think Facebook and Twitter are doing more to divide the country than pull it together.

In fact, 2 out of 3 Americans think social media outlets fracture us more than they unite us, and that is across the board, with majorities of Republicans, independents, and Democrats, as well as majorities of whites, Latinos, young people, and seniors. African-American social media users were split down the middle.

Additionally, more than 1 out of 3 social media users said social media sites make their lives worse.

In an analysis of the results written on Sunday, NBC News senior political analyst Mark Murray wrote the "most Americans admit they use social media at least once a day, but they also believe platforms like Facebook and Twitter are doing more to divide the nation than to bring it together."

The NBC News poll was conducted from April 17 to April 20, with the majority of the survey data published in late April. For the 1,000 adult respondents, the margin of error is plus or minus 3.1 percentage points. For the 655 adults who use social media on a regular basis, the margin of error is plus or minus 3.8 percentage points. Additionally, t he margin of error for the 238 parents of children under the age of 18 in the poll is plus or minus 6.4 percentage points. You can view the poll by clicking here.

This poll comes as Judicial Watch, a government accountability advocacy organization, revealed on Tuesday that it had acquired documents allegedly showing Biden Campaign members and California officials conspiring with social media giants to censor speech related to the 2020 elections, including several posts by Judicial Watch.

This was allegedly accomplished by the California officials taking as gospel so-called "Misinformation Daily Briefings" that a communications firm that was linked to the Biden Campaign wrote which the California Officials shared with Twitter, Facebook, and Google.
