Google Reports Hillary Clinton Overtakes Donald Trump In Searches During DNC

For those people not at the Democratic National Convention, they’re still searching for information about it.

Google Data Editor Simon Rogers said those search topics have been changing over the course of the convention. He said on the first day, Bernie Sanders was among the more popular queries, but that started to change once Michelle Obama took the stage.

And then on Tuesday, former President Bill Clinton spoke, and top searches included questions about the Clintons and their life.

"For the first time I can recall throughout the entire election, Hillary Clinton was more searched on Google in every single state than Donald Trump was," Rogers said.

Rogers said search topics can change quickly, as convention speakers move from one topic to another. He says we’ve become a nation of second screens: one to watch and another to tweet, Facebook and search.

Google reports immigration, ISIS and abortion top the list of issues searched so far during the last day of the DNC.
