|makeresults| eval owner_realname="Andrew  Gerber" | where match (owner_realname,"\s{2}")

Search above generates output, but in the output the double space in the "owner_realname" is missing in the browser display (it is present if you download it via CSV).

Your browser is choosing not to display the second space - it's there if you inspect the HTML.
