What are Ohioans Googling most? Raccoons, spray tans and Trump

Google searches yield the results Americans need to figure out how to do things and in Ohio, raccoons tend to be the source of most frustration, according to Estately.

Estately, a real estate company, looked at the most common "how-to" questions entered into Google in the last five years and filtered them through each state.

The result is a list of the most common how-to questions by state, with some as benign as "how to quilt" in Minnesota and sinister as "how to get away with murder" in Delaware.

Aside from raccoons, Ohioans ask other things like, "how to tell if someone likes you," "how to spray tan" and "how to impeach a president."

One of Florida's was, incidentally, "how to get out of Florida." Kansas, even more bizarrely, was, "how to find Kansas."

Mississippians want to know how to twerk, whereas Hawaiians are more concerned with how to divide fractions (and Arkansans want to know how to add them). Georgians want to know how to hot-wire a car and Illinoisans how to jump one.

With the upcoming presidential election, Indiana wants to know how to vote for Trump, whereas New Jersey's second-most how-to search was how to stop Trump.

Real Clear Politics offers the latest numbers, where Trump is up 45-41 on Clinton in a three-way match-up involving Libertarian presidential candidate Gary Johnson (who is at 9) in Indiana, and in New Jersey, Trump trails Clinton 51-40 in a one-on-one match-up.

As for our Kentucky neighbors, they seem to be following a pattern: How to talk dirty? How to get down? How to make a baby? But their most-searched how-to is simply, "How to grow a beard."
