Look What Happened to Google Searches for ‘3rd Party Candidate’ During Trump’s RNC Speech

Donald Trump surprised

While Donald Trump was giving his lengthy acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention on Thursday, Americans were frantically looking for alternatives to both Trump and fellow New York liberal, Hillary Clinton.

As Conservative Review reported, Google searches for a “3rd party candidate” skyrocketed a whopping 10,000 percent during Trump’s speech, according to Google Trends.

As you can see by the graphic below, searches for alternatives to the two highly unpopular candidates went through the roof during Trump’s speech, then began to tail off following it.

It is very likely that similar activity will happen during the Democrat National Convention, as Hillary Clinton isn’t viewed much more favorably in the Democrat Party than Donald Trump is among Republicans.

Thus far, unless a white knight comes out of nowhere, which is highly unlikely (but not completely impossible) this late in the game, America only has two other choices, Green (Communist) Party candidate Jill Stein and Libertarian Party candidate Gary Johnson, who is against religious liberty and thinks that Jewish bakers should be forced to bake Nazi cakes.

In summary, our choices out of a country of over 300 million people is between a corrupt, calculating, power-hungry liar, a narcissistic sociopathic authoritarian, a commie pinko, and a nutjob who gave up pot one month ago to run for president.

To quote a word often used in Donald Trump’s unhinged tweets: Sad!
