In addition to the voter info tool we've shared with you, check out the Trends tab on our Politics & Elections website: http://goo.gl/gO9U3. Here, you can compare search trends graphs from Google presidential candidates for the whole country or a specific state. Alternatively, you can view the data as a heat map for the United States. This information comes from Google Trends (google.com/trends), a tool that shows you search volumes for one or many keywords and allows you to compare them for specific time ranges and locations. Try using Google Trends to compare other election-related search terms, like Paul Ryan and Joe Biden, liberal and conservative, or donkey and elephant. You can also get trends on our +Google Politics & Elections page.

I wish you could zoom in to live search results that would be awesome to watch.
 
Not that I have a dog in this race anyways. But I wish mainstream coverage would show 3rd party results whether they think people care or not. Obama and Romney are not the only people running for president and I'm sick of seeing it represented that way.
 
noooo mitt romney obama sucks !!!!!!!!!!!!
 
How is the linked photo (and other +Google Politics & Elections pages) which only list two candidates consistent with the +Google Politics & Elections statement of "This page will focus on impartial data and digital trends surrounding the political process. We are non-partisan and don't support or endorse any political candidates."

If you are going to exclude candidates with the ability to achieve an Electoral College victory, at least be direct enough to spell out the criteria.
 
+john leach  Dude, give up the "musilim" BS. It's ignorance.  

We all know Obama is not Muslim, McCain and others have even stated so.  By the way, if you want to accuse Obama of being Muslim, you should properly spell Muslim!
 
Yes +Brent Stewart  ...yes they are.

Have you ever raced before? Lets say in running...
Obama and Romney are crossing the finish line in a few hours. Those other candidates...they are still tying their shoes. That is not a race for them.
They are not "running" yet. Maybe they are tying their shoes for 2016, but they aren't in this race.
 
yeah, let's vote for romney so a woman looses the right to choose, cuts funding to education and f.e.m.a., abolishes the minimum wage and child labor laws, and officially declares the united states as an evangelical christian theocracy all the while keeping us in perpetual war. ha! i don't think so.

“The demographics race we’re losing badly,” said Sen. Lindsey O. Graham (Republican - S.C.). “We’re not generating enough angry white guys to stay in business for the long term.”
 
And call on God to romney's victory until the terrorism in the Middle East that helped Obama
 
+Paul Jewkes that's a sad excuse. They don't appear to be running because no one is giving them coverage thus no one knows enough about them to vote. It's a vicious circle. The Green, Constitution, and Libertarian party are on the ballots (ie: not write-ins) and deserve to be covered even if they're dead last. I've watched numerous non-political races and what you're saying is just not true.
 
Obama will steer this country in the RIGHT direction. Just give him time. It must be very impenetrable to amend a country that has been nullified.

+Sarah N. IKR?! FINALLY! I CAN HAVE MY PEACE! POLITIC-FREE TV! JUST THE WAY I LIKE IT! REMINDS ME OF SWEET LEMONS!
 
woopie, i no longer have that rain cloud above my head, but now i have an obama one.
 
Google - your "News" coverage during the election cycle was partisan and agenda-driven. Your bias against conservatives was noted, as it is with ABC, NBC etc.

America nurtured you. You have forgotten your obligation to present all sides. 

I only wish I could find a way to teach citizens literacy regarding media bias. You are a prime example of propaganda.
 
+Jane Fielding  wow, I've actually been intrigued. CONGRATS 4 ACTUALLY INTRIGUING ME! WHAT KINDA GIFT U WANT?
