It's becomming clear -- Bush is going down

President Bush's campaign in Florida, which handed him victory in 2000, took a blow yesterday when two of the state's newspapers failed to endorse his candidacy. The Orlando Sentinel, which has not endorsed a Democrat for president since Lyndon Johnson, opted for John Kerry. "This president has utterly failed to fulfil our expectations," an editorial said. "We turn now to his Democratic challenger, Senator John Kerry, with the belief that he is more likely to meet the hopes we once held for Mr Bush."

Another Florida newspaper, the Tampa Tribune, chose not to endorse either candidate. It is the first time since 1952 that the paper has not backed the Republican candidate for the presidency.
