Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump appears to be running away with the GOP nomination.

Trump got closer to that with seven more victories on Super Tuesday.

He now leads his opponent in states and delegates won.

But Trump’s big night had a lot of people going online.

According to Google, internet searches for “How to move to Canada” surged Tuesday night as election results came in.

The search increased by 350 percent between 8 p.m. and midnight. Then it shot up 1,500 percent.

All that interest took people to Canada’s Immigration website.

The site started slowing down due to the high traffic.
