Bleeding Heartland: Obama crushing McCain in newspaper endorsements
Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland
Two websites are keeping comprehensive lists of newspaper endorsements
for Barack Obama and John McCain: Editor and Publisher: "The
Obama-Biden ticket maintains its strong lead in the race for daily
newspaper endorsements, by 105 to 33, a better than 3-1 margin," ... In
a real shocker, two solid Bush papers in 2004, the Houston Chronicle
and Austin American-Statesman, also came out for Obama today. So did
the more traditionally Democratic the News & Obsever in Raleigh and
the Orlando Sentinel, both in key battleground states. Obama's
lopsided margin, including most of the major papers that have decided
so far, is in stark contrast to John Kerry barely edging George W.
Bush in endorsements in 2004 by 213 to 205.
