An updated list of major paper endorsement flips to Romney.

Data mostly from here, and updated. Note that these are major paper flips.  Swing state paper flips are more problematical, largely because what’s definable as a ‘swing state’ is shifting fairly drastically in the GOP’s definition right now…

The Daily News (New York) 
Newsday (Long Island, NY)
Houston Chronicle
Star-Telegram (Fort Worth, TX)
Orlando Sentinel
Sun-Sentinel (Ft. Lauderdale, FL)
The Tennessean (Nashville)
The Des Moines Register
 Daily Herald (Arlington Heights, IL)
Daily News (Los Angeles)
Wisconsin State Journal (Madison, WI)
Press-Telegram (Los Angeles County, CA)

There aren’t very many national papers that haven’t endorsed, and I suspect that the ones that haven’t yet, won’t. I find it… interesting… that the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and the New Orleans Times-Picayune are apparently going to sit this one out, after endorsing Obama in 2008; assuming, of course, that they don’t do their endorsements late. It’s also interesting that there hasn’t been much movement the other way…

    Huh. Hadn’t realized the Daily Herald endorsed Obama in 2008.
    .
    Calling the Daily Herald a “major paper” is a little like calling the Libertarians a “major party”, just FYI … the Chicago Tribune and Chicago Sun-Times dominate the market the Herald operates in.
    .
    Most people who get the Herald either don’t want to pay the slightly (a quarter a day, last time I checked) higher price for the Trib or the Sun-Times and are satisfied with wire stories for everything but local news, or are serious news junkies and *also* get the Trib or Sun-Times.

    Eh. It’s a flip in the right direction, I’ll take it.

    p.s. Are you seeing *any* papers endorse Obama who endorsed McCain last go’round? That would be .. interesting.

      Hey, it’s on the list.

      As to McCain to Obama… there’s one from the top 100 list that I’m using, as far as I know. But it’s in San Antonio, so meh eh who cares? 🙂

        I don’t see Texas going for Obama .. much to the chagrin of one of my contacts in Dallas.

          I don’t get why all the maps seems to think Texas leans Romney. In 2008 we gave McCain one of his largest margins of victory. Only the most liberal (and weak-minded) here in Texas will be voting for Obama. IT WILL NOT EVEN BE CLOSE.

            Monster – two factors. The vast influx of Californians, and the mistaken belief that Hispanics are a bloc.
