This past election cycle was definitely one for the ages, but the nation’s interest in politics has not waned since Donald Trump’s surprise victory.In fact, the passion seems to grow by the day. Clearly there was little enthusiasm for Hillary Clinton (hence her half-empty campaign rallies and stunning defeat), but there certainly are strong feelings for President Trump — both for and against.
However, based on the burning questions Americans have according to their most popular Google searches, you kind of have to wonder about our collective wisdom — at least in the case of…oh, South Carolina for example.Per IJ Review, a map, courtesy of Estately, shows the phrases each state has googled most frequently since November 8th.
Not surprisingly, the common thread among these searches were political questions and for the most part, fell along the party lines you’d expect. (But South Carolina…seriously?)
California – What did Trump do now?
Texas – Who will Trump nominate for Supreme Court?
Arizona – How to emigrate to Canada?
Oklahoma – What is NATO?
Arkansas – How to build a wall?
Alabama – Who is Frederick Douglass?
South Carolina – What is a p*ssy hat?
New York – Can Obama run again?
Minnesota – Where is Hillary Clinton now?
Wisconsin – What is populism?
Michigan – Did Trump ban Muslims?
Vermont – How to move to Canada?
New Hampshire – How to stop Trump?
Rhode Island – Trump impeachment odds?
Connecticut – What are refugees?
Hoo-boy. It’s going to be an interesting four years, that’s for sure.[Note: This article was written by Michele Hickford]
