Voters: Reporters Favor Obama

WASHINGTON, Nov. 4, 2008 — More than half of voters think the media “tried to help” Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., win the presidential election.

That’s according to a new Rasmussen Reports poll. In all, 51 percent of voters “say most reporters have tried to help Barack Obama win the presidency.” Only 7 percent of voters think the media tried to help Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., win the White House.

At the same time, 31 percent of voters believe reporters “offered unbiased coverage” and 10 percent were undecided, according to the poll, a national telephone survey.
