The presidential debate may send people up north instead of the ballot box.

Google searches for moving to Canada spiked after the 2020 presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

Queries for “how to apply for Canadian citizenship” skyrocketed about an hour into the yelling match between the two men, peaking at around 10:30 p.m., according to Google.

The search was most popular in the state of Massachusetts, followed by Ohio and Michigan.

“How to move to Canada” and “move to Canda” also experienced a surge in searches during the debacle of a debate, which was fraught with interruptions, unfinished points and nasty attacks.

“Cheering you all on from this side of the border! You got this!” one Twitter user wrote.

Other Canadians were less supportive.

“Sorry, we’ve built a wall on our southern border,” another joked.
