I expect most of the voters registering around here are Republicans. Hell will freeze over before this state goes Democratic again. There have been voting drives all over in both parties, so probably it's about even. There's no way to tell for sure, however.

Daily Endorsement Tally: Kerry Picks up 30 Papers, Widens Lead

By Greg Mitchell

Published: October 17, 2004 11:00 AM EDT

NEW YORK Sen. John Kerry picked up a raft of newspaper endorsements Sunday, widening his lead over President George W. Bush in this area.

Kerry gained the editorial backing of at least 30 papers while Bush won the support of 17 that we know of, giving Kerry the overall lead by 45-30 in E&P's exclusive tally. Kerry has more large papers on his side, maintaining his "circulation edge" at nearly 3-1, with approximately 8.7 million circ to Bush's 3.3 million. (See chart, with complete tally, below.)

Bush did pick up several major papers this weekend, earning the endorsements of the Chicago Tribune, The Arizona Republic, Denver's Rocky Mountain News, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Richmond Times-Dispatch, The Indianapolis Star, and The Dallas Morning News.

Among Kerry's new supporters were five papers that had backed Bush in 2000: the Bradenton Herald in Florida, the Daily Camera in Boulder, Colo., the Columbia Daily Tribune in Missouri, the Daily Herald in Arlington Heights, Ill., and The Muskegon (Mich.) Chronicle.

Three other papers that backed Bush in 2000 announced they would not support either candidate this year: The Tampa Tribune, the Wichita Falls Times Record News in Texas, and the Winston-Salem (N.C.) Journal.

Well if the media broadly endorses Kerry then it is a sure thing right?

Actually, in Alabama newspaper endorsements are considered the kiss of death for political candidates. Both of our major newspapers here in Birmingham endorsed Bush.

Well the whole business over at CBShave definitely buffered Bush when it comes to the flood of shock/horror stories right before the election - as one person asked - why would they go to air with such poor evidence, its almost like they have an agenda

And funnily enough FoxNews recieves the total lashing for being part of a huge government media control program because it is the odd one out in the bunch.

stupid poll. you're implying a vote for anyone other than bush and kerry makes you a "loser"?

while kerry is certainly the lesser evil, he's hardly a trustworthy man either.

No, I am saying that there are some sections of the mainstream media that would gladly cover up damaging information about Kerry but will throw a jihad at Bush over information of questionable reliability.

Credibility goes out the window when it is for the greater good, which in this case would be getting rid of Bush and installing Kerry.

If you vote for Kerry you may or may not be an idiot, just as Bush. Nader and Misc voters may or may not be idiots.

Election results show how one-sided FYM really is...

The ongoing poll in FYM on who would win the election was almost 2:1 Kerry for several months, yet the election results tell a completely different story.

It just goes to show how one-sided and liberal FYM really is. This forum does not fairly represent America and never has.

That's a shame.

This forum is not designed to represent America.

First, it is an international forum.

Second, I suspect it has a younger demographic than the US population at large.


Third, thank God for the regular members here. I would poke my eyes out if this were a "ditto head" forum.

My point is not that this should represent America, rather, that so many lefties here claimed that the FYM poll was some sort of guide for how the election would turn out.

Didn't even come close to being a reality.

Perhaps some got lulled into a false sense of security by reading the left leaning posts. You always run a danger when you hang out exclusively with like minded people.

I think that level of debate in FYM, however, is high enough that both side learn.
