People Google Obama.

More so than they Google Romney.

Over a 30-day period, through Monday, the president of the United States led the Republican Party’s candidate for his job by 47 percent in Google searches, according to Bloomberg’s index of Obama-Romney Google searches.

It may be understandable that on Sept. 5, the second day of the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, the Web searches for Obama outpaced searches for Romney by 200 percent.

On the final day, the day Obama accepted his nomination: 124 percent up over Romney.

The president’s post-convention Google bounce: 173  percent over Romney.

The day that Romney accepted his party’s nomination in Tampa, on Aug. 30, the two ran dead-even in Google searches.

Romney’s post-convention Google bounce put him 105 percent ahead of Obama on Aug. 31.
