Google will show campaign finance information in search results

Last month, Google updated its search engine to quickly display information about the US presidential election, including delegate counts and the political stances of each presidential candidate. Now it's adding campaign finance information provided by the Center for Responsive Politics to the mix, which will be displayed at the top of your search results.


The new graphic cards will provide information on which industries have donated to each candidate the most, and the breakdown between individual donations and super PAC funding. Google is also displaying search trends for each candidate prominently when you Google their name. With seven months left in this election cycle, it's likely that this won't be the last update Google will push out to beef up its political offerings.
