Google Trends: Clinton vs. Trump and Pokemon’s popularity


Searches for Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump
I did searches on Clinton and Trump over the past 30 days for the state of Illinois. The graphic showed more people are searching for Trump than Clinton during this time, a bit surprising considering Clinton is from Park Ridge and Illinois is projected to vote Clinton in the November election.

Pokemon Go vs. Porn
The Pokemon app craze hit in July. So how did it dominate Google Search? We put it to the test and compared it with searches in the U.S. for the term “porn” over the last 90 days.
