What Was the Most-Googled Political Term in Minnesota?
While we're still wondering whether it'll be four more years of President Trump or if Joe Biden will win the presidential race, the Most Googled Political Term in Minnesota might give us a clue.
With results still not official (as of 9 a.m. Wednesday, November 4th, anyway), it's still a toss-up as to who will win the race for the White House. But one thing we DO know is that there has been a TON of research during this political season, all to try and predict how the results of the election.
And one new survey just looked at online data from across the Land of 10,000 Lakes to find out what we're Googling the most. I use Google a LOT, and it's always kind of interesting to see which phrases automatically pop up in that Google search window.
The number-crunchers over at NotFreeAmerica completed a survey that analyzed more than 1,700 terms and keywords related to the election to determine the most-searched-for political term in each state. They also surveyed over 2,000 Americans to learn more about their attitude toward the election. What they found was a fairly deep distrust of not only our political election but in elected officials as well.
Which is reflected in their results. Here in Minnesota, the Most Google Political Term heading into the 2020 election was 'Biden corrupt.' Now, not to be outdone, over in my home state of Wisconsin, the Most Googled Political Term was 'Trump lies.' So, pretty much both ends of the political spectrum are represented here in the upper Midwest.
Nationally, according to the survey, 'Deep State' was the most common search term in 15 states, followed by terms related to distrust in President Trump, which were most common in 8 states. You can see the full results of their survey HERE.
And, as you may have already noticed, there are some strange terms being bandied about, especially if you watched any of the national news broadcasts during election night. And, as the results continue to be counted across the country, knowing what these political terms mean can be pretty helpful. Keep scrolling to see how many of these you know-- and to maybe learn of a few new terms, too.
