To put that further into context, Facebook says that typically the top terms on a Sunday and Monday in the Fall are related to football. With more than 170 million people, over half the U.S. population, actively using Facebook, this gives a glimpse into how the elections are taking over the American conversation.
The fifth most popular term is "Remember the 5th of November," a reference to Guy Fawkes Day, an annual commemoration of a seventeen-century attempt to blow up the British parliament. In modern day, the phrase has been adopted by anti-government protesters and activists as a rallying cry. The next three terms, Sunday football, Falcons & Doug Martin, all relate to the NFL.
The top terms are over a 24-hour period (12pm Saturday to 12pm Sunday).
