Why it matters: The study shows that while Trump's presidency has been action-packed, the public's attention span doesn't seem to last for long.

The visible spikes of increased Googling on a topic indicate that Trump-related news captures the public's interest, but that attention quickly fizzles out or is captured by the next bombshell report or firing. Only a few issues have more steady interest over time.

The most searched for topics of the list:

  1. The Virginia election on Nov. 8
  2. Trump and the NFL on Sept. 24
  3. Trump and the NFL on Sept. 25
  4. George Papadopoulos on Oct. 30
  5. Affordable Care Act repeal on May 4
