Wyoming Google’s “Japanese Internment” More Than Any Other State Since Election
Since the November election, to find out find out what each state's populace has been Googling more frequently than those in other states, Estately.com used Google Trends. Do these results for the Cowboy State surprise you?
WYOMING: Trump inauguration speech / Trump cabinet / FOX News live / internment of Japanese Americans / fascism / xenophobia / filibuster / Who won the popular vote? / populism / drain the swamp / Electoral College
It makes sense that Alabama would google Jeff Sessions, as Indiana googled Mike Pence. Both California and Texas searched on secession.
After all these years since World War Two, Wyoming suddenly became interested again in Japanese American internment? Is it still guilt? We're not the only state with that mark on U.S. history. There were also camps in Arizona, Arkansas, and California. In Wyoming, Japanese from the west coast were taken to Heart Mountain, near Cody. By the way, a search on that also brings up those stories from our site. (As for all the other googling on the Cowboy State's list, we'll just say no comment.)
To be fair, Estately’s full 50 list - here - does not represent things each state Googled the most since the election, it just shows the searches each state Googled "more frequently than the others."
