Google Search Results Reveal What Americans Were Worried About on Tuesday

That sounds about right for America right now.

The 2020 election will be studied for decades to come, intensely and intricately.  This was one of the more ridiculously nuanced contests of its kind in modern history, and the enormous turnout of the American voters will serve as high water mark for the foreseeable future.

Every aspect of Tuesday night’s stress-inducing episode will be under a microscope in the coming weeks, not only via political scientists, but among cultural experts as well.

And, what better way to get a feel for the national culture at any particular moment than to take a glimpse as to what people were searching for on Google?

Google searches for ‘liquor store near me’ hit an all time high last night as Americans watched the election results roll in.

Google Trends posted their findings on Twitter Tuesday night accompanied by graphs showing a sharp upward trend of searches for liquor stores as Americans sought to soothe their election anxiety in a race which has been dubbed ‘too close to call’.

American searches for fast food and ‘move to Canada‘ also skyrocketed.

But not all the searches were as whimsical:

Searches for ‘anxiety’ broke a previous record on Tuesday, suggesting Americans are having a hard time keeping calm as the election comes down to the wire.

The search engine’s findings prompted Google to advise its users to check in with their family and friends.

There is no telling how many of those searches ended with purchases of champagne for celebrations, or beer to shed a tear into.
