Marianne Williamson most-searched candidate during debate

Author and spiritual guru Marianne Williamson was the most-searched candidate during Tuesday night's Democratic presidential debate in 49 states, according to Google. 

Before the debate, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders and Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren took up most search interest. Williamson took most interest in every state but Montana, where presidential candidate Steve Bullock is governor, during the debate. Nationwide, Sanders and Warren retained the number two and number three spots. 
Though Williamson got fewer minutes of speaking time than many other candidates on the stage, she stood out with memorable lines condemning how those in the political establishment talk about issues.

"If you think any of this wonkiness is going to deal with this dark psychic force of the collectivized hatred that this president is bringing up in this country, then I’m afraid that the Democrats are going to see some very dark days,” Williamson said, referencing President Trump. 

Search interest for "dark psychic force" spiked after her line. 

“The issue of gun safety, of course, is the NRA has us in a choke hold, the pharmaceutical companies, the health insurance companies, so do the fossil fuel companies, and so do the defense contractors,” Williamson later said. 
Several conservative commentators talked up Williamson's debate performance. California Sen. Kamala Harris' national press secretary, Ian Sams, also praised Williamson: "Preach it, Marianne," he tweeted during the debate.
