If the Republican and Democratic parties were choices on Tinder, a whole lot people would have been swiping left to look for another option on Tuesday night.
Google searches for the words "Libertarian Party" exploded late Tuesday as Donald Trump won the Indiana GOP presidential primary in a landslide, and prompted his closest opponent, Ted Cruz, to suspend his campaign.
Tuesday night also saw Sen. Bernie Sanders beat Hillary Clinton in Indiana's Democratic primary, while still trailing her significantly in overall delegates nationally.
A chart on Google Trends indicating the volume of searches for Libertarian Party shows a relatively low level during most of the day, but a marked pickup in the early evening, and then a huge spike after 8 p.m.
That surge occurred as it became clear Trump and Sanders had won, and after Cruz effectively abandoned his bid for the White House. Similar spikes tied to the primary's outcome were seen Tuesday night in Google searches for "libertarian" and "move to Canada."
The term "Socialist Party" also saw several bumps during the night, but the change in volume was not as pronounced as searches related to "libertarian."
