The most common search on Google that was connected with Republican Mitt Romney’s name during the final presidential debate was "auto bailout," according to statistics compiled by the website.
Romney and President Obama had a lengthy exchange Monday night about the $80 billion bailout of the U.S. auto industry in 2008 and 2009 that ended with both candidates encouraging viewers to read a New York Times op-ed that was written by Romney titled “Let Detroit Go Bankrupt.”
Google said "auto bailout" was the most popular term that was searched for with Romney’s name from 9 to 10:45 p.m., about 15 minutes after the conclusion of the candidates’ third and final debate.
The most common Google search in common with Obama’s name last night was “apology tour,” followed by “bin Laden,” “2008” and “horses and bayonets.”
Other popular non-car related Romney searches included “what’s on flag pin” and “budget plan.”
