I'm posting the poll one day early as I may not have access to a computer tomorrow.

Graham dropped out of the race so he is dropped from the poll. This means that everyone's media share receives an artificial bump due to the vacuum Graham left behind.

Dean manages to hold of the first assault from Clark, but just barely. Dean and Clark are now the two most quote-worthy candidates in the race, which means that every story that has a political bent to it is likely to have some mention of both of them in it. It used to be Dean and Kerry that fought for media attention, but Kerry has almost dropped down into the Gephardt/Edwards/Lieberman tier. For the foreseeable future, as the media sees it, Dean and Clark are the story of the 2004 election.

The following is a chart of the Google News Media Share over the last few months.

(Methodology: All numbers are taken from the hit counts when searching on the Google News Service for news stories containing each candidate's name. Click on each name to rerun the search. You will get different results as the numbers are constantly changing. I make absolutely no claim that these numbers have any real meaning.)
