The Newspaper Endorsements [Update]

A newspaper endorsing a presidential candidate doesn’t carry as much weight as it used to, but still, it’s fun to keep track of them. Because we like fun (it’s fun!), here is a list of which paper has endorsed which candidate. So far, Barack Obama is in the lead. What does that mean? Probably nothing!

You can use this list as a way to figure out who is going to win — Obama or Mitt Romney — in November, or simply as a reminder that newspapers still do this kind of thing. We’ll keep updating this list as more papers publicize their choice. Please let us know if we miss any.

Obama maintains lead, 31 to 27.
