IMO this is not a bug, according to the current documentation it is working as designed.  raw_decode says it decodes a string that *starts with* a json document.

To my understanding, raw_decode is designed to be used when parsing a stream containing more than just one json document, including possibly non-json text, in which case it makes sense that the calling application would be responsible for (and want to) handle the whitespace around any such document.

I recommend closing this as invalid.  If the consensus is otherwise and a change is made, I think it would be an enhancement, not a bug fix.
