Be a Political Trend Spotter

If you have students interested in the presidential campaigns in the US, they can now become an official political trend spotter. Google’s Politics and Elections Blog encourages political enthusiasts to submit current trends in the political race and have them featured on the site.

The blog features stories and issues, along with powerful search tools, relating to the ongoing political race in the United States; and how public interest, by use of the web, “can help transform politics and elections from a passive process to an active, participatory one.” There are fascinating posts with colorful graphics depicting current trends in everything from which candidate’s book is more interesting, to which department the federal government should cut.

Encourage your students to submit the political trends that they spot, and they too, just might become an official Google Political Trend Spotter!
