NEW YORK (Updated Tuesday The Obama-Biden ticket maintains its strong lead in the race for daily newspaper endorsements, by 121 to 42, an almost 3-1 margin and an even wider spread in the circulation of those papers (see full tally below).
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.
Note: We are updating this story and list often so return for additions.
At least 26 papers have now switched to Obama from Bush in 2004, with just four flipping to McCain (see separate story on this site). The latest making the move to Obama: Inland Valley Daily Bulletin of Ontario, Calif. It joins such larger papers as the Denver Post, Chicago Tribune and New York's Daily News.
Please send any endorsements you see or make (that are not listed below) to: email@example.com.
