Washington, DC — Following a bump in approval last week, President Trump’s job approval has dropped back down to pre-Harvey/Irma levels, now at 35% (down from 40% last week). Trump’s numbers have also dropped across all specific policy areas. Notably, as the Republicans begin to broach tax reform, Trump’s approval on the US economy dropped by 5 points from 47% last week to 42%. Despite the drop, Trump still enjoys higher approval than Congress, which is now at 24%.
Washington, DC —Both in the U.S. and worldwide, nearly half say there are too many immigrants in their country and four in ten support closing borders to refugees entirely. Among nearly 18,000 adults under the age of 65 from 25 countries surveyed by Ipsos, 48% agree that “there are too many immigrants” in their country. The proportion of those in the United States who share this view is also 48%.
Washington, DC — President Trump’s approval rating has plateaued in recent weeks, now at 37% approving and 58% disapproving of the way he is doing his job as President. While these rating naturally fall out along party lines, the data shows just a third of Independents (34%) indicating approval of the President. Also in line with recent weeks, two thirds of Americans (65%) currently believe the US is on the wrong track and under a quarter (23%) think things are heading in the right direction.
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".
