Google Trends gave insight into the minds of some voters as Trump and  Biden argued at Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio.

The "How to apply for Canadian citizenship" inquiry peaked at approximately 10:30pm, as the fiery debate came to an end.

The query also surged again, and even higher, at around 4am Wednesday morning.

Massachusetts had the most inquiries for obtaining Canadian citizenship, followed by Washington state, Michigan, and Illinois.

"Move to Canada" and "how to move to Canada" were also popular search questions across the nation.

The top four states that had the most searches for "Move to Canada" were Oregon, Vermont, Colorado, and Wyoming.

"Relocation" was also a popular word used in google searches, in the District of Columbia, Oregon, Colorado, Hawaii, and Alaska.

Other popular search terms during the debate were "Canadian Nationality Law," "O Canada," "How to move to Canada from USA," and Canada's Prime Minister "Justin Trudeau."

The seemingly out-of-control debate was moderated by news anchor Chris Wallace.

The political Fox News journalist has been criticized for "losing control" of Biden and Trump.

Embarrassed viewers took to social media to show their feelings about the debate – which has been dubbed “a chaotic and vicious show" by Spanish newspaper El Pais.

"I’m really glad that Europe slept through that last night. Let’s just keep this whole thing quiet, ok. Looking at you, Canada," someone wrote to Twitter on Wednesday morning.

Another tweeted: "This is a 90 minute commercial for Canada."

In Switzerland, Meret Baumann wrote in Neue Zuercher Zeitung: “The spiteful presidential debate portrayed a country that is no longer capable even of a dignified dispute.”

Despite people questioning whether they should move to Canada, coronavirus travel restrictions are still in place.

"United States and Canada have a mutual agreement to restrict non-essential travel across our shared border," according to the U.S. Embassy & Consulates in Canada.

"The current agreement runs through October 21. For more information, see our fact sheet."
