Here are the most popular Google search terms for each election candidate

Google Politics put together some data on the top search results related to each candidate on the ballot this Election Day, and the results provide an interesting overview of the midterms. While terms like "voting record" and "how old is" rank pretty highly for many of the candidates, there are also a few unique gems. Take, for instance, the No. 4 ranked term for Louisiana's Sen.

Yes, "keg stand" refers to the spat between Sen. Landrieu and her Republican opponent, Rep. Bill Cassidy, who slammed her for aiding a partier in a keg stand outside a Louisiana State University football game. Other interesting top searches? "chicken dance," (No. 2 for Iowa Democrat for Senate Bruce Braley), "fired from trek" (No. 1 for Democratic Wisconsin gubernatorial candidate Mary Burke), and "centerfold" (No. 3 for New Hampshire Republican for Senate Scott Brown).
