Following a successful Super Tuesday for Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton, many Americans are ready to flee the country. Google searches for "How can I move to Canada?" spiked by 350 percent late Tuesday evening, according to Google data engineer Simon Rogers.
But if you're eager to expatriate, Canada's not your only option, as the New York Daily News helpfully noted in its "complete guide to fleeing President Donald Trump's America," published on Wednesday.
"The first step of any great escape plan," writes author Meg Wagner, is "picking a destination." Her top choice is Singapore for its cosmopolitanism and health care system. Ecuador is a good option for affordability, Austria for safety, and Mexico for a relatively familiar culture (despite what Trump himself has to say). Wagner also offers logistical advice and suggestions for how to settle into your new, Trump-free home abroad. Bonnie Kristian
Republicans turned out in record-breaking droves to vote on Super Tuesday — there were so many, in fact, that they beat the Democrat's massive 2008 turnout:

Donald Trump has taken responsibility for the numbers, claiming that he has won over independents and Democrats.
"I think it's a harbinger of things to come," director of the Paul Simon Public Policy Institute at Southern Illinois University David Yepsen told The Washington Times. "All those people who line up for Donald Trump rallies and also lining up at the ballot box and the caucus site. Trump's winning and nothing succeeds like success." Jeva Lange
Bernie Sanders was only able to win the support of one major demographic on Super Tuesday, according to exit polls presented by MSNBC's Steve Kornacki. While Hillary Clinton dominated among black voters (83 percent to 15 percent) and Hispanics (67 percent to 33 percent), Sanders' sole group win was with white men, 54 percent to Clinton's 44 percent.
Clinton has a lot of thanks to give especially to black voters, NBC News reports. NBC writes that, "If only white Democrats had voted on Tuesday in [the Southern] states, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders would not have been that far behind Clinton in terms of accumulating delegates."
Sanders has been criticized for his concerning lack of appeal among minority voters as well as for his attention-grabbing "Berniebros," who tend to identify as exactly the demographic Sanders won over on Tuesday — white men. "The Berniebro is someone you may only have encountered if you're somewhat similar to him: white; well-educated; middle-class (or, delicately, 'upper middle-class'); and aware of NPR podcasts and jangly bearded bands," The Atlantic writes.
And while Sanders has surprised in the past by ranking well with a group Clinton desperately wants — millennial women — he actually lost women overall to Clinton, with white women favoring her 57 percent to Sanders' 41 percent in the exit polls. White voters as a whole also gravitated toward Clinton, 50 percent to 48 percent. Jeva Lange
Sen. Ted Cruz won his third Super Tuesday contest in Alaska, edging out Donald Trump in the state Republican caucus, 36 percent to 34 percent. Sen. Marco Rubio came in a distant third at 15 percent, followed by Ben Carson, 11 percent, and Gov. John Kasich with 5 percent. It was Carson's best showing of the night. Catherine Garcia
If some Republican leaders have their way, John Kasich will be bowing out of the presidential race sooner rather than later.
BuzzFeed reports that three sources close to Mitch McConnell said the Senate majority leader is becoming increasingly irritated by Kasich staying in the race, impeding Republicans from coming together around one candidate, and even some of Kasich's allies are going to start strongly urging him to drop out. With the Ohio governor still in the running, some GOP leaders say he's taking away votes that could be going to a candidate in a better position to defeat Donald Trump — for instance, on Super Tuesday, Kasich received about 9 percent of the vote in Virginia, a state that Marco Rubio lost to Trump by less than 5 points.
Kasich has said he won't exit the race until after Ohio, but one Republican told BuzzFeed it looks like maybe Kasich "made a deal with the devil. Why else is he in the race? Kasich needs to look GOP voters in the eye and tell us whether he has a deal — explicit or implicit — with Donald Trump for a spot on the ticket." Ryan Williams, who worked for Mitt Romney in 2012, said Kasich is running a "vanity campaign," and he can expect plenty of private and public calls to leave the race now. "People should realize that a vote for Kasich at this point is a vote for Trump," he said. "It's time for John Kasich to take a hint and read the handwriting on the wall." Catherine Garcia
Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) notched his fourth Super Tuesday victory in Colorado, winning the state's Democratic caucus, The Associated Press and other news outlets are projecting. With 93 percent of precincts counting, Sanders leads Hillary Clinton 59 percent to 40 percent. Colorado apportions its 66 delegates through a complicated process that could ultimately result in Clinton winning more delegates, The Denver Post reports. Sanders also won the Vermont and Oklahoma primaries on Tuesday, as well as the caucus in Minnesota. Peter Weber
