Search Requests for Palin Trump Biden: Does Google Data Imply Press “Bias?”

September 1st, 2008 · No Comments · Politics

A Google Trends search reveals that many more searches contained the search term “sarah palin” than on “joe biden” immediately post announce of VP status. Is this indicative of “popularity,” or just the curious trying to learn more about a relative unknown?

What I find most intriguing is how the “demand” for information (the top graph) is not aligning with the “supply” from the press (the bottom graph.) Signs of a leftist plot, or just a reflection of natural lag time?
