Bringin' it Home

An excruciatingly long election campaign journeys into its final hours.

As the 2012 election draws to a close, it seems that every ounce of news has been juiced from the fruit of our labors.

But the final hours of the election roll on, and journalistic pundits scoop up the few remaining details that could help change the minds of undecided voters.

The Poynter Institute reported at least 30 newspapers across the nation switched from endorsing Obama in 2008 to Romney this year.

Twenty-four of those papers were swing-state papers, like the Wisconsin State Journal. Although the Journal touts Obama as a “more likable and inspiring speaker”, it says “This is now Obama’s economy, even though the GOP shares in the blame for partisan games.”

Sharing is caring. With all the negative spin, vitriolic remarks and persistent gaffes, at least we can all share the blame.

Some of the other re-opinionated newspapers include the New York Daily News, the Reno Gazette-Journal, the Orlando Sentinel and the Houston Chronicle.

Meanwhile, only a handful of papers have flipped to Obama, including The San Antonio Express-News, the San Francisco Examiner and the Winston-Salem Journal – all who endorsed McCain in 2008.
