HOW DO I READ THIS TABLE?  The top row indicates the party endorsement for 2016 and the side column indicates the party endorsement for 2012. So, for example, 46 papers that endorsed a Republican in 2012 have now endorsed a Democrat. And, 13 papers that did not endorse in 2012 are not endorsing in 2016.
