We present Political Search Trends, http://politicalsearchtrends.sandbox.yahoo.com, a browser based web search analysis tool
that (i) assigns a political leaning to web search queries, (ii) detects trending political queries in a given week, and (iii)
links search queries to fact-checked statements. In terms of methodology, it showcases the power of analyzing queries leading
to clicks on selected, annotated web sites of interest.
