A new Harvard study finds that over the full course of the election, it was Hillary Clinton, not Donald Trump, who was more often the target of negative coverage. Overall, the coverage of her candidacy was 62% negative to 38% positive, while his coverage was 56% negative to 44% positive.
Negative coverage was the order of the day in the general election. Not a week passed where the nominees’ coverage reached into positive territory. It peaked at 81% negative in mid-October, but there was not a single week where it dropped below 64% negative.Save to Favorites
