Forget polls and panels. Based on data accrued from the innovative search app’s American users, Qmee has released a list of the Republican presidential hopefuls who are winning the search popularity contest – and unsurprisingly, Donald Trump is generating the most search buzz. However, the billionaire-turned candidate for the Republican nomination accounted for a whopping 71 percent of all Republican candidate-related searches during the month of September.

The search rewards browser app that recently achieved $4.5 million in funding with plans to expand in the U.S. next year, compiled and analyzed a slew of data ranking Republican presidential candidates based on user searches made between September 1 and 14 based on Republican presidential candidate-related keywords. The results reveal some interesting trends regarding the country’s political climate and voters’ queries leading up to this week’s Republican Presidential Debate slated to air on CNN on September 16.

Americans are the most curious about the below candidates based on the number of searches by their users:

  •     Donald Trump – 71%
  •     Ben Carson – 11%
  •     Jeb Bush – 7%
  •     Ted Cruz – 3%
  •     Mike Huckabee – 2%
  •     Rand Paul – 2%
  •     Scott Walker – 1%
  •     Chris Christie – 1%
  •     John Kasich – 1%
  •     Marco Rubio – 1%

It’s not all number crunching and logic chopping, though; the search engine has also compiled the quirkiest keywords that users searched with each candidate.

While garnering the lion’s share of the searches, users searching for Trump paired their search with a variety of terms as colorful as the candidate himself. Top pairings, which varied depending upon users’ opinions of the candidate, included:

  •     “Donald Trump + racism”
  •     “Donald Trump + hair”
  •     “Donald Trump + meme piece of cheese”
  •     “Reasons to vote trump”
  •     “Trump loves unions”
  •     “Trump dictator”
  •     “Why would people vote for trump?”

Trailing behind Trump with the most searched for common terms were Ben Carson, Jeb Bush and Ted Cruz. Topics of interest spanned from hard-hitting defense issues to polarizing policies. Users were especially transfixed by Scott Walker’s “walls with Canada,” Ted Cruz’s “atomic bomb south” and Jeb Bush’s “ad about Trump.”

Founded with the singular goal of putting the consumer back at the center of the Internet, Qmee has placed user’s political interests front-and-center with its latest findings. As the company looks toward 1 million users, Qmee is looking forward to viewing even more findings, while helping its users make money for searching online.
