The story of America’s post-election grief, as told through Google searches – The Washington Post

images-washingtonpost-com

If we’ve learned anything in the past 12 hours, it’s this: Polls can be off; pundits can be wrong; predictions can be mistaken. Google searches, on the other hand, remain an excellent barometer of our collective id.

That was the certainly the case in the early evening on Tuesday when, according to Google Trends — a tool that identifies news topics spiking in search — Americans began searching by the tens of thousands for political news sources and basic information like “when do polls close on Election Day.”

It was the case between 8 p.m. and midnight, when election results began to come in, and Americans overwhelmingly searched for counts from Pennsylvania and Florida, specifically, as well as general “poll trackers” and the ever popular “who’s winning the election.”

But you see a shift begin when the answer comes back, definitively, as Donald Trump. There’s suddenly a lot of concern about the stock market and Russian President Vladimir Putin. And there are a lot of questions, as there always are, about Canadian immigration. This, in short, is the story of blue America’s post-election grief, as told through Google searches.
