Did Google Trends Predict the Super Tuesday Results?

Yesterday was Super Tuesday in the United States and many of the presidential primaries were held. SEO.com has written up a post that seems to predict the trends in each state to determine the winners. Using Google Trends, it seems plausible that people's searches impacted the winners.

Of course, not everything is perfect using Google Trends, as pointed out by DigitalPoint Forums members. However, it's interesting to see how many results correlated with the trending data.

I can imagine that other competitive intelligence firms will come out with results later today or tomorrow that will measure the results even more accurately.

Or will they?
