Topic A for the next few days will be who Joe Biden will select to be his vice-presidential running mate. One interesting metric to track is how much public interest each potential vice presidential pick is generating.
The Google News Lab team compiled normalized search interest in each of the most talked-about potential selections since late May and broke it down by week. This is not a representation of the raw number of searches for each candidate; the most-searched candidate at a given time is instead used as the benchmark.
We think it best to concentrate on one candidate each time the graphic plays through, focusing on whether she has moved up or down over the last 90 days, and if so when.
