NYT Endorsement Timeline


This representation of New York Times Presidential endorsements is absolutely fascinating. Some tidbits:

  • Grover Cleveland was the first Democrat to be endorsed by the NYT. He shares with Franklin Roosevelt the honor of being endorsed three times.
  • Eisenhower received the endorsement in both 1952 and 1956, and is the last Republican to do so.
  • The NYT endorsed Wendell Wilkie for some reason in 1940.
  • The only third party endorsement came for John Palmer, who garnered 1.3% of the vote in New York and .96% of the vote nationwide in 1896. Not big William Jennings Bryan fans, it’s fair to say.
  • The longest NYT losing streaks are 3; Harding-Coolidge-Hoover, and Reagan-Reagan-Bush.
