In contrast, dozens of newspapers have endorsed Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton
October 27, 2016
Today, the Las Vegas Review became the third major US Daily newspaper to endorse Donald Trump for President.
"Yes, Mr. Trump's impulsiveness and overheated rhetoric alienate many voters. He has trouble dealing with critics and would be wise to discover the power of humility," said the Las Vegas Review Journal Sunday in an editorial.
"But neither candidate will ever be called to the dais to accept an award for moral probity and character. And we are already distressingly familiar with the Clinton way, which involves turning public service into an orgy of influence peddling and entitlement designed to line their own pockets - precisely what a disgruntled electorate now rises up to protest."
"Mr. Trump represents neither the danger his critics claim nor the magic elixir many of his supporters crave. But he promises to be a source of disruption and discomfort to the privileged, back-scratching political elites for whom the nation's strength and solvency have become subservient to power's pursuit and preservation."
The 2016 presidential election has the most one sided list of newspaper endorsements in American history.
While Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton has garnered the support of a long list of daily newspaper editorial boards, her Republican rival Donald Trump has received just three. One of those is from the National Enquirer.
Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson has six newspaper endorsements, 3 more than Mr. Trump
Several editorial boards have even cautioned voters against putting Trump in office, and a number of conservative-leaning papers have said they too are "with her."
