As soon as it was clear that Donald Trump had won Tuesday’s US presidential election, the number of US residents entering the internet search words “moving/move to Iceland” skyrocketed, according to The Engine, a marketing consulting company in Kópavogur.

On its Facebook page, the company posted a graph yesterday, displaying the number of such searches in the US in the past seven days. They suddenly surged from zero to 100.

The post reads, “Seems at 4 am last night when Trump was leading, they were researching it. Then at 5 am they were shell shocked by the results, and then finally at 6 am they went into overdrive.
Other places of interest include, Canada, Norway and Ireland.”
