Donald Trump will soon be sworn in as the 45th president of the United States of America. But it looks like, once again, people seem to care more about the protests against Trump than the celebration of his coming presidency.
In more than half the country, Google searches for “inauguration protests” outperformed searches for “attend inauguration,” according to data from Google Trends. Searches for those phrases could mean any number of things, but it’s just one more indicator of just how strong the collective opposition to Trump really is.
A map of the compiled data shows that a healthy majority of the country is more interested in the protests — 31 states are googling the protests more than the actual inauguration in past seven days. Meanwhile, just 17 states had people searching “attend inauguration” more often.
