Source: Tweets gathered by MassRelevance since 2 p.m. on Monday. Transcripts from press briefings and gaggles gathered from whitehouse.gov.
Methodology: Questions were converted to lowercase before searching for phrases. Partial matches counted: "employment" matched both "employment" and "unemployment", "job" matched both "job" and "jobs", etc. Press questions that began with "--" in the transcript (indicating a continuation of a previous question), did not have a question mark, or were under 50 characters (generally follow-up questions) were discarded.
