MONDAY: Updated Endorsement Tally -- Obama Widens Lead to 112-39

By Greg Mitchell and Dexter Hill

Published: October 21, 2008 11:50 AM ET updated Monday


NEW YORK (Updated Monday) The Obama-Biden ticket maintains its strong lead in the race for daily newspaper endorsements, by 112 to 39, an almost 3-1 margin, picking up 70 or more papers in the past three days, including (see separate stories), the Detroit Free Press, Buffalo News, Cleveland's Plain Dealer, Palm Beach (Fla.) Post, New York's Daily News, Miami Herald, Philadelphia Inquirer, Portland's The Oregonian, Denver Post, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, The Salt Lake Tribune, Kansas City Star, and Chicago Sun-Times.

In a real shocker, two solid Bush papers in 2004, the Houston Chronicle and Austin American-Statesman, also came out for Obama on Sunday.

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.

We have also added up the circulation of the papers endorsing each candidate. Here Obama leads almost 4-1: 13.4 million to 3.7 million.

McCain did pick up a Texas nod from the San Antonio paper, plus a big one from the Columbus Dispatch in Ohio, as well as The San Diego Union-Tribune. All backed Bush in 2000 and 2004.

Note: We are updating this story and list often so return for additions.

The NY Daily News was yet another paper, now numbering at least 25, that backed George W. Bush in 2004 and now support Obama. The Long Beach (Ca.) Press-Telegram and Asbury Park (NJ) Press did the same. So did the San Gabriel Valley (Ca.) Tribune, Salt Lake Tribune, The Naples (Fla.) Daily-News, the New Haven (CT) Register, the Times-Reporter in New Philadelphia (Ohio), Las CRuces (NM) Sun-Newsm, Mason City (Iowa) Globe-Gazette and the Yakima Herald-Republic in Washington, among others. In addition, the Plain Dealer of Cleveland, which sat out the 2004 contest, endorsed Obama. McCain has picked up only one Kerry paper so far: The Daily Press of Newport News, Va.

26 Papers That Backed Bush in 2004 Move to Obama

By Dexter Hill


Published: October 20, 2008 9:45 PM ET

NEWYORK Taking a look at our daily endorsement tally so far (see link below), the Obama-Biden ticket has a hefty lead in both total newspapers and total circulation. But another figure that favors the Democratic candidates is the number of newspapers that have endorsed Sen. Obama despite supporting President Bush’s reelection in 2004.

At least twenty-six newspapers have switched their support to the Democrat, while only four newspapers (all in the South) endorsing Sen. McCain supported John Kerry in 2004.

In California alone, the Obama-Biden ticket picked-up six newspapers that endorsed President Bush in 2004.

He also gained a few papers, such as the Los Angeles Times and Cleveland's Plain Dealer that did no endorse either candidate in 2004.

Our full tally of all endorsements, with Obama ahead by about 115 to 40, updated Mondayhere.
