Former Rep. John Delaney (D-Md.) was the surprise star of the second round of Democratic debates on Tuesday. He and author Marianne Williamson both largely dominated Google search traffic during the debate, according to Google Trends.
In a search for the most likely terms for five candidates — Delaney, Williamson, Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), and former Rep. Beto O'Rourke (D-Texas) — throughout the debate, Williamson and Delaney had standout moments, while Warren rose in search traffic shortly after the end.
Williamson reached 100 on Google Trends at around 10:31 p.m., right at the end of the debate.
Delaney stood out at 10:03 p.m.
PJ Media found similar results when searching the candidates' full names, instead of search terms.
When PJ Media included former Gov. John Hickenlooper (D-Colo.) and Pete Buttigieg, mayor of South Bend, Ind., we found similar results, but Hickenlooper enjoyed a stand-out moment at the beginning of the debate.
Delaney edged in by attacking Sanders and Warren on Medicare For All and other unrealistic promises they have supported. He gained a great deal of debate time relative to his low poll numbers. Even so, he is unlikely to pose a realistic threat for the nomination.
In the discussion after the debate, CNN's Jake Tapper said the moderators tried to give the lower-polling more moderate candidates more air time as a stand-in for former Vice President Joe Biden.

Google has released its annual "Year in Search Data", which can be found on its trends page along with a fresh video journey through 2018 in search. While most of the tech blogs are focusing on the overall top trending search items, there is just as much if not more value to be found in the what, how, where and who of it all. Spoiler: as much as you love Googling your own name, you weren't the who.
It should be noted that the following search items are the top trending search terms of 2018, not the "most searched" or "top searches" overall, just what searches were trending the most in the United States over the last year.
The top trending search term of 2018 was "World Cup," but people weren't as keen to worry about how to watch it. Rather, they wanted to know how to vote and how to register to vote — the top two searches under "how to". Following that, the people were hedging their bets against the possibility of a well functioning democracy, searching for how to play Mega Millions, how to buy Ripple, how to buy Bitcoin and how to play Powerball. They also searched for how to get the old Snapchat back and how to get boogie down emote (whatever that is) so at least if that quick pick doesn't pay out they can still enjoy emoting on Snapchat.
Just as no-one but your mom and stalker wanted to know how to find you, where you actually are isn't a concern. But people sure did want to know where Villanova University is (it's in Pennsylvania). Or perhaps they were reacting to Villanova's sleep texting study. Other trending searches in this category were a bit more obvious, with people searching for the location of Parkland, Florida, as well as where hurricane Michael and Florence were located. Good news for the democracy though, as people were also heavily searching for their polling place.
What is Bitcoin? What is Racketeering? While there is no direct correlation, it feels like these two items might be related at some point in time. The rest of the "what is" list reads like some demented textbook shopping list held in the hand of a student who has switched majors twelve times. What is Fortnite (Battle Royale 101), what is Good Friday (Religion 202), what is a duck boat (WWII History) and what is Yanny Laurel (Audio Sciences). What does all this mean? It means I can no longer lie to my kids about duck boats being actual boats for actual ducks.
Who won the Mega Millions? Not you. Who dies in Infinity War? I have no idea. Who won McGregor vs. Khabib? You had money on it but couldn't spring for the pay-per-view? Who won Logan or KSI? We all lost. Who won the election? Do you live on an island? Who bit Beyoncé? Wait, someone bit the queen bee? Who is Lil Tay? Was it Lil Tay? Who is Marshmello? Something you put in hot chocolate. I think the thing to take away from this sub-category is that if someone is searching for the who of it all, it is a totally justified search.
Finally, it should be pointed out that unicorn cake was the highest trending search item for food, which is fantastic, but Keto diet recipes showed up on that list in five spots. Keto was also the top trending search for diets. My conclusion here is that a unicorn cake diet is probably the best diet you can ever choose. Sadly, I've lost my appetite since the top trending fashion search was for 1980s fashion. Why can't we just let the 80s die already? Search for that next year.
