  1. Joe Biden
Joe Biden Win in US Election Will Bring US-Saudi Relations

This personality was one which would have been expected by most, Joe Biden was the top opposition candidate for the 2020 US elections and was the electoral candidate who represented the Democratic party as opposed to the republicans who were represented by the outgoing President, Donald Trump. Joe Biden fought a hefty battle against the Republicans providing a lot of competition for Donald Trump. He was continually being searched by his peers on the search engine to see not only his electoral campaign but also the election among many other things. It is also worth noting here, that “Election Results” was the second most searched thing on Google’s analysis so one could understand how many people were following up on the 2020 election. Joe Biden eventually won by getting the majority seats and has now become the new President of the United States of America and the decision has been welcomed by many people residing in both the US and other countries as well. Joe Biden has quite a following, and his election campaign has helped him become the Topmost searched personality on Google for 2020. 

  1. Kim Jong Un

An unlikely personality who made the cut for the second most searched personality in 2020. It is worth noting that the North Korean dictator is always on the radar of many people especially because of controversial statements against the USA. However, it was one event that really put him up there and helped him gain the second spot. This event is of course the false rumor that the North Korean dictator had died because of an infection caused by the corona virus. The rumors started to come in late April of 2020 and had left many people wondering as to whether the news was in fact true or was it just a hoax. The news did end up being false as the Kim Jong Un later addressed the public in a press conference and lets just say, he was very much alive. 

  1. Boris Johnson

It had to be another political personality right and well this time round, the third spot was given to the current Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Boris Johnson. Johnson had gotten quite a lot of heat for completely disregarding the pandemic by posing controversial remarks for example “Many more people are going to lose their loved ones before their time” causing a public emergency. He along with his ministry also failed to cope with the spread of the virus in the country and was given quite a lot of heat for his work against the spread. It was his controversial remarks that inevitably led many people to search for the Prime Minister of UK on the Google search engine.

The female candidate is also seen as an inspiration by the female population of the world, as she is seen as the beacon of light for women empowerment and the progress that has been made in the world, in regard to women. She also has fair share of influence on the people and is very active on the social media platform Twitter where she continually fought against the republican party and their shared views.
