The Des Moines Register endorsed Marco Rubio and Hillary Clinton in the Iowa caucuses.
FiveThirtyEight: “The average post-endorsement bump has been a statistically insignificant 3 percentage points… That’s not to say the paper’s endorsement is meaningless. For one, it may hold more sway for Democrats than for Republicans. All four of the Democrats who have gotten the endorsement have done better than projected, compared to three of the five Republicans.”
Politico: “Both campaigns quickly blasted out the respective editorials in emails to their supporters. But strategists and observers have raised questions about whether the paper’s approval can do much to influence voters – and in some cases could even be counterproductive.”Save to Favorites
