NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCBD) – Google Trends was on top of the most searched and most talked about moments during the GOP debate in North Charleston, South Carolina on Thursday night.

They provided timelines representing searches of the candidates at specific times. Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio rounded out the top three searched candidates during the debate.

Donald Trump was the most “googled” candidate before the debate and he held on to that title straight through the end of the debate. If you dive into the trends even more, Ted Cruz was the number two most “googled” on Thursday night.

According to Google Trends, the top searched issues of the night were taxes, ISIS, immigration, economy and Obamacare.

They also monitored the top questions searched about the candidates in the early debate and the main debate.
