Icelandic online marketing agency The Engine has posted a rather telling graph related to online searches on election night in the US on Tuesday.

As results flooded in and it became increasingly clear who the winner would be, the amount of internet users in the US searching for ‘moving/move to Iceland’ sky-rocketed. The same happened once the result was confirmed.
