Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, D-Hawaii, emerged as the most-searched candidate on Google following the Democratic debate Wednesday night despite trailing several others in recent polls.

According to GoogleTrends, Gabbard was the most searched candidate in the majority of states, followed by Sens. Cory Booker, D-N.J., and Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., who was the most searched candidate before the debates. Booker was the second-most searched, and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, was the third, and Gabbard was the fourth.

RealClearPolitics’ polling index shows Gabbard with just 0.8 percent of the vote, behind O’Rourke, Booker and Warren, among others. The Hill found that during the debate, Gabbard had the third-lowest amount of speaking time with 6 minutes, 15 seconds, more than only New York Mayor Bill de Blasio and Washington Gov. Jay Inslee.

The Hill notes that her most memorable moment may have been her criticism of Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan, who argued that the U.S. needs to maintain a military presence in Afghanistan to prevent the Taliban from growing.

Gabbard replied that the Taliban “was there long before we came in and will be there long after we leave. We cannot keep U.S. troops deployed to Afghanistan thinking that we are going to somehow squash this Taliban.”
