Only Two of the Nation's 72 Largest Newspapers Endorsed Trump

Not a single newspaper in Michigan picked the winner

Of the nation’s 72 newspapers that have a circulation of over 100,000 readers, only two endorsed Donald Trump for president, according to Wikipedia.

Overall, Hillary Clinton had an even 500 newspaper and magazine endorsements while Trump had 26.

There were more “Not Donald Trump” endorsements (32) than Trump endorsements (26).

The Las Vegas Review-Journal and the Florida Times-Union were the only two daily newspapers with circulations over 100,000 to endorse Trump. Seven of the 72 newspapers with circulations over 100,000 didn't give an endorsement.

USA Today broke its tradition of not endorsing presidential candidates by telling its readers that Trump wasn't fit to be president.

In Michigan, none of the 13 daily newspapers tracked by Wikipedia endorsed Trump. The Detroit News endorsed Libertarian candidate Gary Johnson. The rest supported Clinton.

The Secretary of State's office says the official voting results will be finalized at the end of the month when the Board of State Canvassers meets to certify the results.
