Are some North Carolinians suffering from early voting remorse?
On the morning after the announcement that the FBI was re-opening its investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails, a spike in Google searches for the term “Change My Early Vote” was noticed by the Gateway Pundit website.
North Carolina is not one of the seven states where you can change your early vote.
“We looked to see how many people in North Carolina were searching the term ‘Change My Early Vote’ and sure enough there was a significant spike the morning after the announcement. The spike peaks about 6 a.m. the morning after the announcement,” Gateway Pundit noted on Oct. 31.
A Google graph showed the search term “can you change your early vote?” was practically nonexistent prior to the FBI’s announcement, snaking along a seven-day graph at zero until around 5 p.m. on Friday evening, when it suddenly shot up to a search interest volume index of 100. At the same time, the phrase “I’m with her” plummeted to just over 25.
