Google churned up some VERY interesting data on last night’s Donald Trump searches.

(Before It's News)

Yesterday, there were two events simultaneously going on: a Republican party Presidential debate, and a Donald Trump impromptu charity fundraising/media event that Trump put together after he, frankly, abandoned the GOP debate*. Now, there’s going to be some interest to see how that translated in relative viewership, but we already know that both CNN and MSNBC only briefly covered the Trump event live. Both networks kept the event in their background for a bit longer, but the media prefers to talk about Trump. Actual Trump, in real-time? Bores them – particularly when he’s not throwing bombs.

As for online interest…

Note that this is one search metric: comparing people who searched for the debate live stream, as opposed for people who searched for Donald Trump’s. It’s mostly important because it does suggest that the lack of interest on television to give Trump wall-to-wall coverage for his event will not be counterbalanced by a sudden online surge reflecting the desire of the ‘grassroots’ to watch Trump anyway. I mention this because I fully expect a lot of people today to try to earnestly explain that of course Donald Trump didn’t make a mistake by trying to establish dominance over Fox News, and failing. Ach, well, people are gonna write what they’re gonna write.

PS: What does this mean for Monday? …Nothing, really. The question Monday is whether or not organization matters, after all. The exciting thing about it is, maybe organization doesn’t matter. We just don’t know!
