I want to search for: Putin "wins" presidential election

I am looking for a site which uses quotes as sarcasm, but I cannot search for phrases that include quotes, since they will be turned into modifiers to my search instead.

You can't, at least not with Google. Your options are:

  • Search without the quotes. If you know that the rest of the phrase is an exact match, you can search for "Putin wins presidential election". You can use ctrl + f to speed up the process.
  • Use another tool. While not a search engine, English-corpora.org allows you to search punctuation on select parts of the web. For your example, you could search for " wins " (the spacing is important).

I wasn't able to find a match for your search using either of these methods, however, so an exact hit may not be out there for this search.
