The GOP might have danced to Donald Trump's tunes, but the newspapers aren't having it that way. The Republican presidential nominee has managed to receive zero major newspaper endorsements, a first in modern U.S. history.
While Trump would probably attribute this failure to his acrimonious relationship with the media, the fact that not even a single editorial board in the country considered Trump a suitable candidate for presidency speaks volumes about his eligibility. Newspapers covering the entire spectrum of political thought deem Donald Trump's personality as antithetical to the core values of America, and despite what Trump might claim about how the media hates him, the fact of the matter is that even steadfastly conservative newspapers have decided not to side with him.
As for how it might affect the voters themselves, Jack Pitney, a professor of government at California's Claremont McKenna College, thinks that moderate Republicans who are still unsure if they want to vote for Trump might be greatly disillusioned with this report.
"It's significant. The cumulative effect of all these defections could have an impact on moderate Republicans."
