Bernie Sanders wins the search wars on debate night as more people used Google to learn about him than any other Democratic candidate – in EVERY U.S. state
- Only three states showed greater interest in Hillary Clinton before the debate began but by the night’s end it was a clean-sweep for Sanders
- Most-Googled question about Clinton and Sanders: How old are they?
- Most-Googled question about second-tier challengers: WHO are they?
- Debate watchers had questions about CNN moderator Anderson Cooper: How much is he worth? Who’s he dating? And is he a Democrat?
Forget the issues, the political punching and the squabbling over classified emails: Bernie Sanders was the most interesting character at Tuesday’s Democratic debate, judging from search data gathered by Google.
More Americans in all 50 states Googled the Vermont senator, a self-avowed ‘Democratic socialist,’ than any other candidate on stage.
The clean sweep extended even to Mississippi, Nevada and South Dakota, the only three states where Hillary Clinton was the most-searched Democratic presidential contender going into the five-candidate event.
