The Image of a Horse Race in Politics

The image of a horse race in politics has a long history. The Boston Journal, for example, used it in its election coverage as early as 1888. Critics have long criticized the image and the methods used by journalists and pollsters in covering election campaigns. As a result, Atkin and Gaudino have criticized journalists’ treatment of campaigns as horse races. The horse race image continues to be a controversial subject in the media today.
