‘How to Move to Canada’ Searches Spike After Donald Trump Super Tuesday Victories

GOP candidate’s wins leave many Americans looking to leave the country

Donald Trump’s victories in seven states on Super Tuesday left many Americans ready to hightail it to the Great White North.

The phrase “how to move to Canada” began trending on Google as results poured in from across the nation. According to Google data editor Simon Rogers, searches for the phrase spiked 350 percent between 8 p.m. and midnight Eastern time.

By midnight, that number jumped to 1,500 percent, according to Google Trends.

The controversial candidate won seven states in the Tuesday primaries, namely Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee, Massachusetts, Virginia, Arkansas and Vermont.

Trump’s victories came despite the fact that he initially refused to speak against the recent statement of support he received from former KKK leader David Duke.

Speaking to supporters at his Mar a Lago estate in Florida, Trump congratulated Ted Cruz for the senator’s win in Texas before taking a swipe at Hillary Clinton’s record, saying she has been in politics a long time and “isn’t going to straighten it out” if elected president. Trump also took aim at GOP rival Marco Rubio, saying the “little senator” had a “tough night.”

Clinton, meanwhile, took the delegate-rich states of Massachusetts, Texas, Arkansas, Alabama, Virginia, Georgia and Tennessee in the Democratic primaries.

She told supporters in Florida that “this country belongs to all of us, not just those at the top, not just to people who look one way, worship one way or even think one way,” while opponent Bernie Sanders promised his supporters he would take the fight to the 35 states that remain in contention.
