Despite Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) topping the Google searches before Tuesday's Democratic debate, longshot candidate Marianne Williamson dominated the metric after the debates.
Tuesday's debate featured half of the Democratic candidates including South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg, Sen. Sanders, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).
But it was the esoteric yet entertaining author and activist who toppled Sanders to seize the Google search victory, according to Google Trends.

Williamson had several memorable and entertaining moments, including one where she criticized the "dark psychic force" of President Donald Trump and his policies.
She also said that she would advocate for up to $500 billion in reparations for slavery in a segment where she descended into the details of the math of such a policy.
In the first pair of Democratic debates in Miami, Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii stunned many by dominating the Google trend analytic.
The rest of the Democratic candidates will square off in the second night of Democratic debates on Wednesday in Detroit.
