Google Searches on Crime, Immigration Jump as Abortion Queries Fall

(Newsmax)

By    |   Thursday, 22 September 2022 04:11 PM EDT

Google searches for topics related to crime and immigration have risen in recent weeks, at the same time that searches for abortion-related topics have dropped.

Axios compared Google Trends data collected from May 23-Aug. 8 with data from Sept. 8-Sept. 20, and found that searches for topics related to crime and immigration far outnumber searches on abortion and the FBI's recent raid on former President Donald Trump's estate in Florida.

Searches about abortion jumped dramatically after the U.S. Supreme Court draft decision on Roe v. Wade leaked to the public last May, but the number of searches has dropped more recently, though the topic still remains highly searched in states and districts that are passing or recently passed laws restricting abortion.

However, searches related to immigration and the border increased significantly last week, moving into the top 10 search topics following news of asylum seekers being flown to Martha's Vineyard, Massachusetts, from Florida. Crime searches have also risen, as well as searches about inflation and the economy in general. Searches about gas prices, which hit the top 3 most searched last June, dropped more recently as prices began to fall.

Axios also found that Ukraine is back in the top 5 searches after falling lower down the list for multiple weeks, and that firearms fell from the top 5, the second time the topic has done so since the news outlet began tracking this data.
