24 Hours Later, Not One Mainstream Outlet Has Covered Dems' Total Collapse in Reuters Poll

Reality never campaigns for Democrats.

However, judging from the total silence over Monday's Reuters/Ipsos generic ballot poll, the nation's media certainly does. How else could an objective observer explain an apparent decision by every single mainstream outlet to ignore such a clear opportunity for website traffic?

On Monday at 2:49 p.m., Thomson Reuters' Polling Editor Chris Kahn tweeted this shocker: the Democratic Party has completely lost the double-digit edge it held just weeks ago:

That all-but-certain #BlueWave the media has harped on for months is gone, along with the likelihood that the Democrats will retake the House of Representatives. Mainstream editors deemed the possible retaking of the House based on data gathered one year out from November to be worth scores of headlines. However, not one of those editors has yet reached the reasonable conclusion that the collapse of that narrative six months out from Election Day deserves any coverage whatsoever.

At the time of this writing, only Townhall's Guy Benson has remarked on Monday's bombshell.

And Monday's bombshell was apparently just a sign of things to come, which Benson has also been the first reporter to mention: Today, Reuters just announced that the GOP has taken a SIX-POINT LEAD:

Start the clock: Let's see how long it takes the nation's media to report on this remarkable development.

-----------------------------------------------

Update: On Tuesday at 1:39 p.m., The Hill published a brief report on ... Monday's data.

That's correct: Tuesday's data showing the GOP taking a much larger six-point lead has been available for several hours, yet The Hill is just now publishing the old data from Monday.

----------------------------------------------

Update: Tuesday, 10:00 p.m., about 36 hours after Reuters released the data.

The Hill's brief report -- which now mentions the six-point lead -- remains the only mainstream outlet to reference the game-changing story.
