Could newspaper endorsements make the difference in New Hampshire?

Washington (CNN) - "The quirkiest of Republican presidential primary seasons is about to become serious - deadly serious . . . "

That's how the Boston Herald began its December 28, 2011, editorial endorsing former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney's bid for the Republican presidential nomination. The editorial went on to refer to the "clown car nature" of the GOP presidential field and to the "deeply flawed candidacies of Herman Cain, Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, Ron Paul, and finally Newt Gingrich."

    Yep – a Clownn Car driven by a herkey-jerkey robot. None of the above should definitely be on the ballot in NH.

    I really do not give darn hoot at these endorsements. They are totally idiotic. None of the GOP candidates are trustworthy any more in the Nation. Obama2012.
    PS: GOP is not for Middle Class. They are for banning Social Security, Medicare, etc, not enforcing Tax on Rich. Had rich paid we would not have debt at all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    You need to ask that question to the folks in New Hampshire. I know it wouldn't make much of a difference in NYC and the surrounding areas. Most folks around here who still buy newspapers are not buying them for the editorials.

    I'd prefer to have the Boston Globe's endorsement like Huntsman has. It says alot about a person when the local newspaper doesn't endorse you. Something must be terribly flawed in the candidate.

    God I wish the media would stop trying to influence political outcomes. Between the NDAA and the politburo controlled media influencing elections, its amazing we haven't just changed the name to USSA.

    Ron Paul 2012. Peace and Liberty.

    Huntsman is the only one Obama fears.

    Mitt is a 1-term Governor with 34% approval.

    watch 2-minute video of Mitt talking, WILL FOREVER CHANGE THE WAY YOU LOOK AT HIM:
