Online interest in Occupy Wall Street surpasses all-time peak of online interest in tea party
Google's Politics and Elections blog just posted a big finding. At its height earlier this month, online interest in Occupy Wall Street was higher than the all-time peak of online interest in the tea party back in April of 2009:

Search interest for jumped ahead of the on September 24, and hasnt looked back. In a historical context, when viewing the snapshot of their nascent birth, we can see the peak of has slightly more interest in American than searches for the did during the groups peak in 2009.

In other words, the tea party never generated the level of organic interest online that Occupy Wall Street has generated. Ever.

Further, Google might be understating the degree to which online interest in Occupy Wall Street surpassed online interest in the tea party. According to their long-term trends chart found here, interest in the tea party was only 62 percent of that for Occupy Wall Street at their respective peaks.
