Party ID has taken its biggest shift towards Democrats in 4.5 yearsBottom Line: The first Party ID surveying in 2018 has shown a big move for Democrats in a year they're looking to regain control of Congress. The last time Democrats had a ten-point advantage in party ID was in October of 2013 - that is until now. As recently as December, Democrats only held a 2-point advantage in pledged party support. That ballooned to a ten-point advantage in January.
Upon further review... How President Obama ranks among his peers one year after exiting the PresidencyBottom Line: In the polling age we've had a tradition with our former Presidents. Our generally more favorable view of them one year after they've left office. It makes sense. Being out of the headlines, the contentious issues of the day, policy decisions, etc. has a way of creating a more positive outlook of them in hindsight.
Gun control - More of it was wanted before Parkland - you can be certain more of it will be desired after...Bottom Line: Putting aside the causation behind mass shootings for a moment (again mental illness and guns aren't new) and squarely looking at gun control - we see that the appetite for greater restrictions were there well before Parkland. Gallup has surveyed on this question with its regular polling since 1991.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
