Does Edwards have what Kerry is missing?

On the top three issues, Kerry received the most media criticism during the last six months, Edwards received much more positive coverage.

John Kerry’s political orientation (on a liberal-conservative scale) was, since the beginning of the year, a campaign issue with almost 32.2 % of statements on the subject being negative and 12% positive. At the same time, Edward's political leaning received 26.9% of positive statements and 9% negative. (The remaining share corresponds to statements with neutral ratings.)

The latest report from Media Tenor shows that, in the coverage of tax policy, 35.8% of the statements on Kerry were negative, while Edwards received 5.3% negative coverage.
