What America Has Googled Since Trump's Victory

You have seen it everywhere: Americans expressing their mixed reactions, mostly distress, about Donald Trump's recent win. It was a big shock for everyone, as if time stood still.

But people worked fast. The dismayed ones immediately started looking for alternatives or compromise on how to deal with the president-elect.

Most of the trending searches were that of pure desperation, also known as "escaping". The ones that trended the most were mostly about immigration. They are:

"End of the World"  

Though it may seem too exaggerated to compare the end of the world to Donald Trump's victory, these keywords have caused frenzy in Google traffic.

It's obvious that while the polls were drawing in, worried and frantic Americans were already trying to foresee J-Day.

"Emigrate" and "How to Emigrate To Canada"

Let's just try to avoid the spelling error of this subtle search.

Up until Trump was proclaimed the winner, the Canadian government's site has crashed. The search "How to move to Canada from US" has even raised by about 500%.

"Move to New Zealand" and "New Zealand Citizenship"

Most states that Googled these were Oregon and Colorado.

California, Washington, Oregon and other Hillary states also Googled "How to Move to New Zealand".

It's not an arguable choice though. New Zealand is on a whole different spectrum from the US. The green pastures of land and friendly, welcoming Kiwis are way different from what we live with in the US.

"Where can I move if Trump wins" and "How to Move to Sweden"

 Other than number 2, Google trends considered these as breakout trends. Meaning, these were the most prominently searched keywords during and after the election.

 It's true that the results were shocking and that the initial reaction (especially for Hillary supporters) was to leave ship, migrate and escape. But were Americans really serious about moving out of the country? Or was it just an impulsive reaction?
