The Internet Has No Idea Why Hillary Clinton Is Running Or Matters

Internet users everywhere want to know why former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is running for president, why she matters, and why she isn’t in jail.

“Why is Hillary Clinton running for president?” is the most-searched term in Google when one types “why is Hillary Clinton” followed by, “why is Hillary Clinton important?”

Change that Google search to “why is Clinton?” without her first name, and the second-most searched phrase is, “why is Clinton not in jail?” right behind, “why is Clinton winning?”

“Why is Hillary Clinton so unlikeable?” is the fifth most-searched term under, “why is Hillary Clinton?”

That probably isn’t what the Clinton campaign wants to hear, especially after new polling in New Hampshire shows Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders beating her among likely Democratic voters by 10 percentage points.

Internet users also aren’t sure why Benghazi and her emails matter, Google searches reveal.

Google users have some questions to ask Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, too.

“Why is Donald Trump orange?” is the most-searched term under, “why is Donald Trump?”

Next, Google users ask, “why is Donald Trump good?” and “why is Donald Trump so popular?”
