Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders topped his rival Hillary Clinton in Facebook interest during Sunday night’s debate in Charleston, South Carolina.

Post-debate numbers compiled by Facebook show Sanders beating Clinton across the board.

Sanders was discussed more than Hillary Clinton and Martin O’Malley, who finished third.

Additionally, the “Most Engaged State” on Facebook during the debate was Sanders’ home state of Vermont, followed by New Hampshire, where Sanders is leading, and Oregon, Iowa, and Maryland.

The top issue being discussed on Facebook during the debate was Wall Street. Sanders and O’Malley hammered Clinton on her Wall Street donations. The #2 issue was Medicare, followed by Benghazi, then “crime and criminal justice,” and “climate change” coming in fifth.
