Google Searches for 'How to Move to Canada' Spike After Super Tuesday Results

Google searches for "how to move to Canada" spiked on Super Tuesday as Americans unhappy with the results seemed to be weighing their future options.

It's unclear whether the results were triggered by Donald Trump taking seven states or Hillary Clinton also winning seven. Of course, it's also a possibility a percentage of those searching are charmed by Canada's new prime minister, Justin Trudeau.

Google data editor Simon Rogers first pointed out the trend, noting the searches spiked more than 350 percent Tuesday night. That number surged as high as 1,150 percent before settling around the 500 percent mark at the end of the day, according to Mashable.

Google search results also show a breakdown by state -- and it appears the majority of searches about emigrating to Canada came from Massachusetts.
