The Twelve Presidential Candidates Colorado Googles Most

Last night's Republican presidential debate, conducted by the Fox Business channel, featured fewer candidates on the main stage (eight) than in previous GOP events.

But there remain a slew of hopefuls seeking the Republican and Democratic nominations.

Which are generating the most interest in Colorado? One way of measuring that is by measure Google Trends scores for each candidate over the past twelve months — which is precisely what the folks at Estately did for all fifty states, including Colorado.

No surprise who scored highest in our fair state: Donald Trump. But the breakdown elsewhere is plenty surprising. Note that Hillary Clinton has the second-highest Google Trends score among female candidates and Bernie Sanders, for whom Colorado would seem to be a natural fit, is practically an also ran.

Count down the twelve most-Googled candidates below, featuring photos and their Google Trends scores. To see the original Estately post, click here.
