Being relegated to the “second tier” of Republican candidates to take the debate stage Thursday night may have been the best thing that could have happened to presidential candidate Carly Fiorina.
Fiorina told CNN that she had the lowest name recognition going into the debate, but according to Google Trends, she didn’t come out of it that way.
Google published a map shortly after the debate showing who likely benefited the most. Fiorina handily won 48 of the 50 states.

According to Fox News’ rules, guided by the polls, Fiorina didn’t make the cut to join the 10 top-tier GOP contenders who debated in the prime-time spotlight.
Instead, Fiorina proudly joined the stage with six other “lower-ranking” candidates, and proceeded to mop the floor with them.
According to a Fox News’ snap poll taken just after event, Fiorina won the debate by a whopping 83 percent!

Debate moderator Megyn Kelly summed up Fiorina’s performance best.
“She unleashed a can … if you know what I mean.”
We know what you mean, and did she ever!

Now we’re talking!
Watch Fiorina tell her personal story, starting with her career as a secretary, and her response to comparisons she had made to Margaret Thatcher.
