Google Searches For 'Move To Canada' On Super Tuesday Highest In Site's History
MOUNTAIN VIEW (CBS SF) -- It may be a fluke, or it may be a sign of things to come.
According to Google Trends, search interest in "move to Canada" reached its highest point on March 1, 2016, otherwise known as Super Tuesday, the biggest day in the race for the presidential nomination.
That was also the day presidential hopefuls Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton posted big wins in seven out of eleven states.
Democratic candidate Clinton won Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia. Almost identically, GOP candidate Trump won Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Massachusetts, Tennessee, Vermont and Virginia.
Depending on who you support, the trend may be folks searching for way to get away from an America led by President Trump, or people running for the border at the thought of another President Clinton.
Maybe Canada should start building a wall.
Incidentally, according to Google Trends, the second most recent peak in searches for "move to Canada' was on November 2, 2004. That was the day George W. Bush was re-elected.
