That got your attention! It’s amazing what does.
While exploring Google Trends I discovered that Trump is queried more in Canada than in the United States. So this post isn’t trying to prove that Canadians are worried about Trump. But, they do search his name a lot for some reason.
I personally really liked Obama, but I didn’t search his name on Google more than a few times. Trump, on the other hand, I’m not a huge fan of, but I search his name all the time. I don’t believe I’m alone.
The blue line represents Obama. The red line represents Trump. I used party colors to make it easy to see.
As you can see from the graph, Trump is still searched more Obama.
Why? Let’s look at more data.
To me, it appears that people search candidates they don’t like or are suspicious of… so Canadians search for Trump a lot; a lot more than Americans search for Trump. Everyone searches for Trump more. Draw your own conclusions.
While this doesn’t definitively prove the title, it is thought-provoking. I encourage you to explore Google Trends and test out different keywords. Heck, throw Bush’s name in there and see what you get!
