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.

UPDATE:
Obama maintains lead, 31 to 27.
