Google Trends

Based on an analysis of Google searches from inside Pakistan, Internet users in the world's sixth most populous country are starting to get a lot more interested in Mitt Romney.

The data, which compares Google searches of "Obama" vs. "Romney" over time, shows the latter receiving little interest until September. Searches for Romney started rising that month and have jumped up dramatically since October, although they are still only half of President Obama's numbers.

A recent poll found that 14 percent of Pakistanis say they prefer Romney in Tuesday's election, a slight lead over Obama's 11 percent. Of the 21 countries polled, Pakistan was the only that showed more support for Romney, although the numbers don't exactly suggest preference so much as deep disdain of the current administration.
