Trump, a celebrity real estate developer and TV star who skyrocketed to the top of polls for the Republican presidential nomination, is the most-Googled candidate in every state except Vermont.

There, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who has emerged as Hillary Clinton's main foil for the Democratic presidential nomination, was searched by more people between July 24-30, according to Google.

A county-by-county breakdown of searches shows Trump dominating across the board, followed by former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R) and other candidates, essentially mirroring several recent polls.

Immigration is the top issue being searched, according to Google, and has become a major topic in the GOP following Trump's highly publicized comments on immigrants coming from Mexico.

Many searches for candidates include those such as "What religion is John Kasich?" and "Why was Martin O'Malley booed?" They also include "Is Bernie Sanders a Socialist?" and "Where is Jim Webb?" among others.

Trump and nine other top Republican candidates will take to the stage for the first GOP-sanctioned debate during prime-time Thursday. Seven other Republican candidates will appear in an earlier debate.
