MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) — Hillary Clinton has the edge on Google that is.

Google Trends says more people looked up Clinton’s name than Republican Donald Trump’s in all 50 states following Monday’s debate. Google says Trump searches led in the majority of states before the debate.

The search giant says users looked up information on both candidates’ stances on immigration, abortion and guns most often while the debate was happening.

Many used Google to do their own fact-checking on the candidates’ claims. Google says the top fact check question for Trump revolved around his stance on the Iraq war. For Clinton, users wanted to follow-up on her statement that stop-and-frisk police tactics had been ruled unconstitutional.
