List of United States presidential election endorsements made by The New York Times
Since its founding in 1851, The New York Times has endorsed a candidate for president of the United States for all but two presidential elections (1852 and 1856) in the paper's history. The first endorsement was in 1860 for Abraham Lincoln and the most recent one was for Joe Biden in 2020. Its first six endorsements were for Republicans, and it was not until 1884 that it backed its first Democrat, Grover Cleveland. Since then it has endorsed the Democratic candidate 27 times, the Republican six times (the last being Dwight D. Eisenhower in 1956), and a third-party candidate once (in 1896).
