The top trending question was revealed on the infographic-based Twitter account for Google Trends, along with the top trending questions for Republican nominee Donald Trump, where the most popular question was “Why is Donald Trump in Scotland”, and a variety of British EU referendum categories.
“Not even Google’s search engine manipulation can save Hillary” commented one user, referring to the numerous allegations that Google has been manipulating their search results in favor of Clinton. “Screen cap for when this gets deleted” posted another user.
Despite currently ranking as the number one most searched Clinton-related question, Google refuses to suggest it when a user enters the words into their search engine, a very unusual practice for such a popular search term.
At a Moscow journalism forum earlier this month, Wikileaks founder Julian Assange claimed Google to be “directly engaged in Hillary Clinton’s campaign,” adding that should Clinton be elected, “those people in Google, like Jared Cohen, will be placed into positions around the new Clinton presidency”, creating even more speculation as to the extent of Clinton and Google’s relationship.
