As the NY Governor’s general election race begins to heat up, the news media has started covering Republican candidate Marc Molinaro. The big question is why.
Molinaro has raised a tiny amount of money for a GOP candidate, barely over $1 million. He has zero chance of winning the election.
What’s most interesting is that Molinaro is losing on a variety of measures to Libertarian candidate Larry Sharpe. Sharpe has more followers on Twitter and Facebook.
Google Trends shows that more people are searching for information about Sharpe than Molinaro.
So what do our readers think? Do these stats matter or will the news media’s favoritism for the major parties help Molinaro and hurt Sharpe?
