The governor received more interest Tuesday in New Hampshire than any other GOP candidate — including frontrunner Donald Trump.

According to Google’s search data, voters are particularly interested in Kasich’s stance on abortion. The top questions asked about the governor, who is the perceived moderate candidate in the GOP primary race, include “Is Kasich pro-life?’’ “What is John Kasich’s view on Planned Parenthood?’’ and “Where does John Kasich stand on abortion?’’
