America, Trumped: Google Searches for 'How Can I Move to Canada?' Surge

As Trump won state after state on Super Tuesday – he was victorious in seven contests compared to three from his next-closest challenger, Texas Senator Ted Cruz – Google noted a large uptick in searches about how to move to Canada.

“Searches for ‘how can I move to Canada’ on Google have spiked +350% in the past four hours,” tweeted Simon Rogers, the company’s data editor.

Shortly afterwards, another Twitter user noted that searches had risen more than 1,000 percent, which Rogers also acknowledged as “dynamic changing data.” In another tweet, he said, “that’s up from when I tweeted it.”

Even some Canadian lawmakers were getting in on the action, with Toronto City Councillor Norm Kelly posting a link to a page detailing how to immigrate to America’s often-belittled northern neighbor. The post was retweeted 37,000 times.

While Trump has proven remarkably popular with a wide swath of Republican voters, his controversial comments about banning Muslim refugees, building a wall to stop immigration from Mexico, and his unwillingness to adhere to traditional conservative orthodoxy have also sparked concern among other members of the GOP, not to mention Democrats.
