First off, I wanted to see which candidate was getting more searches. Not surprisingly, Donald Trump is absolutely crushing it in search frequency. By just how much? Almost three times as much!



Granted, average monthly searches are not an indicator as to who is going to win the election. However, it does show just how important it is to have a totally unbiased search engine that does not favor one candidate over another.

Next, I wanted to compare how often people were googling the phrases “Clinton sign” and “Trump sign”. As expected, Trump is destroying Hillary in campaign sign searches as well.



Obviously, not everyone who looks up political signs are going to purchase them. But, it’s pretty obvious that Trump has more people interested in supporting his movement versus the number of people Hillary has supporting her … turn? Regardless, let’s take a look at presidential sign searches over the years and see which candidates ended up winning.

Kerry vs Bush 2004



Obama vs McCain 2008



Obama vs Romney 2012



One thing that I found interesting was that Romney did have a slight edge over Obama in sign searches. Although, if the Trump versus Hillary sign searches resemble anything like the 2008 election, Hillary Clinton is going to lose and she’s going to lose big time.

Moving on, let’s take a look at a few more related search phrases to see if they could indicate a landslide for Trump. The theme we’re going to be looking at here is merchandise searches.

Hillary’s Keyword Data



Trump’s Keyword Data



Trump may be destroying Hillary in merchandise and slogan searches, but what other search terms could help indicate a Trump landslide? Before I move on to that, I just want you to take a look at the line graph for slogan searches. Hillary’s low energy, “I’m with Her” slogan has barely seen a blip of growth compared to Make America Great Again.



How pathetic! The next area I looked into was what the data looks like for how often people are Googling “Clinton rally,” “Trump rally,” and I even threw in “Sanders rally” just for fun. As you can imagine, Trump blows Crooked Hillary out of the water. But, what about Sanders? He had thousands of passionate people lining up to see him too, right?



I’m well aware that just because people are Googling “Trump rally” it doesn’t necessarily mean they will attend. However, “Trump rally near me” is more popular than both Hillary and Bernie combined. Sorry, Hillary … no one wants to even hear you speak.

In conclusion, I had one more phrase that I wanted to examine: “policies”. Except — this time — I wanted to tweak my search settings to get data from each state individually. The conclusion I drew was that the phrase “Trump’s policies” was not just a more popular search in each swing state, but in every state in the union. The closest to comparable results was Virginia.



Obviously, just because Trump yields more hit results doesn’t mean people will like his polices better. I contend the most interesting thing to take away from the above image is that Hillary’s policies have lost significant interest over time

Well it's wrap the main points of this post in a sea of spoilers, driving people nuts, or have the scroll to the right if they have a tiny screen. Crunchyroll really needs an image resizer.

Well just look at this list of donors, most of the big media is for Hillary: http://www.politico.com/blogs/media/2015/05/clinton-foundation-donors-include-dozens-of-media-organizations-individuals-207228

I like how 'hurt feelings' coincides with Obama's debacle.

You could always "quote" your images. That resizes them down to the arbitrary width of the posts.

I was starting to doubt even knowing of the media bias... but to this extent. Interesting.

I've said it before and I'll say it again. My belief is that if you want to stomp out corruption you must follow the money and avoid voting for candidates that are supported by the more anti-competitive industries. I was really hoping for Sanders... but what we have is Trump. I may not like him completely but I think with the viable choices given he is the most likely to get SOMETHING done. We are at the point where we need to roll the dice and hope for the best. What good is stability to me if it's a steady decline?

Let's just make sure to get some real (not corrupt) progressives in other positions to keep his more extreme side in check.

As a Trump supporter I was hoping Bernie would win the Democratic primary. While I am not a fan of Bernie's policies the man himself is very honest and trustworthy. I could deal with Bernie being president but... we have Shillary Clinton instead.

Lol Trump will be busy fighting both parties so I don't think you have to worry about that too much. The republican party hates Trump but the republican voters and independents like him.
