Americans are googling how to move to Ireland

Words: Dylan Murphy

The number of people searching peaked last night as voting halted.

In the past week there has been a spike in the number of people from America googling how to move to Ireland.

It comes as results of the American Presidential elections near suggesting those fearing another 4 years of Donald Trump are willing to leave.

A brief glance on Google Trends reveals that as of yesterday the search terms peaked at the highest point in the chart.

According to Google the “Numbers represent search interest relative to the highest point on the chart for the given region and time. A value of 100 is the peak popularity for the term. A value of 50 means that the term is half as popular. A score of 0 means there was not enough data for this term.”

We can basically deduct from the graph that a lot of Americans are shitting themselves about the results of the elections and the potential consequences.

Oregon a traditionally Democrat-voting liberal-leaning state had the peak searches this week.
