Almost half of registered Republicans believe that President Donald Trump won the popular vote in the 2016 presidential election, even though nearly 2.9 million more Americans voted for his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton. The Politico/Morning Consult poll found that 47% of Republicans and 49% of Trump voters believe the president earned more individual votes than Clinton did. Forty percent of Trump voters said that Clinton won that count.
Protesters chanting "Kill the bill! Don't kill us!" and "Shame!" interrupted the Senate's vote on a motion to proceed to debate on the GOP healthcare bill on Monday afternoon. Hundreds of protesters, organized by activist groups including the Center for Popular Democracy, gathered inside the Hart Senate building as Republican lawmakers narrowly passed the motion, overcoming the first major hurdle in the GOP's efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare.
Republican Sen. Rand Paul announced in a series of tweets on Tuesday morning that he will vote "yes" on a motion to proceed to debate on the GOP healthcare bill — as long as the proposal is some "version" of a clean repeal of Obamacare. "This morning, @SenateMajLdr informed me that the plan for today is to take up the 2015 clean repeal bill as I've urged," Paul wrote. "If that is the plan, I will vote to proceed to have this vote.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
