After seeing Donald Trump’s success on Super Tuesday, the reality of the fact that he could become the nominee, and eventually the President of the United States, has begun to set in for many people. As a result, the Google search traffic for terms such as ‘how can I move to Canada’ have suddenly skyrocketed.

As the results poured in, Google Data Editor Simon Rogers noted the following:

Searches for "how can I move to Canada" on Google have spiked +350% in the past four hours #SuperTuesday
12:13 AM - 2 Mar 2016

That 350% increase turned into a 1,150% jump in the ensuing hours, before settling back down around +500% for the day, according to Mashable. If you aren’t confident that Donald Trump can truly “Make America Great Again,” this should be an encouraging sign. After all, general election polls have shown Trump losing more often than not. On the other hand, he’s still way in the lead.
