Pew Poll: Media Should Not Declare the Race Over
The Pew Research Center has released the results of a poll on the media's insistence that the Democratic primary has ended and Obama is the winner:
Barack Obama may be building an insurmountable lead in the Democratic primary race, but the public is sending a strong message to journalists and pundits: It is too early to declare, as some already have, that the race is over.
Fully 72% of the public - including comparable percentages of Democrats, Republicans and independents - say that journalists should not be anointing Obama as the Democratic nominee at this stage in the race. Just 20% say that journalists should be doing this.
