    I'm seeing very few Obama or Romney signs here in NE Ohio, at least around my neighborhood. More signage for local people/issues.

    Saw a Kerry/Edwards bumper sticker today. Really? Eight years of telegraphing to the world you picked losers (especially after Edwards' history now)?

    No great enthusiasm from either side. And documented violence and vandalism from one.

    Go figure.

    Here in W.Central Ohio the Romney signs outnumber Obama by 5 to 1.Our area gave Bush the 90,000 lead over Kerry in Ohio in Bushs re-election.

    I'm seeing very few bumper stickers in Florida. The Mitt ones are invariably on gas-guzzlers.

    Also, sadly, you won't see many Obama stickers on Chevy Volts, because most are owned by the government, and you can't post political endorsements on government property...

  8. In our neck of Washington State, we see only a few signs for president.
    My son works for one of the state candidates running here, and says that the national campaign of his party wanted the state party to pay for the signs for president.
    To paraphrase the answer: "No, thank you".

    A lot less signage here than last go-around.
     
  10. Not seeing Obama/Biden signs (only saw one) this year, but have seen 4 or 5 Romney/Ryan signs. Seeing more signs for local office and for DC senate. Seeing more R than D signs which is surprising in my area of this liberal state. Mostly Linda Mcmahon signs. Did see one Rosa DeLauro sign. :steamed:

    Did see one house in Woodbridge, CT where the owner painted the word OBAMA in large letters on his wooden fence again this year. Also saw a car in my local branch library parking lot loaded with Obama/Biden 2012 stickers. First car I've seen with 2012 Obama stickers on it this year. There was also a flyer of some sort on a bulletin board in the library that said something about "Obama Jobs".

    Few signs here, but in another thread I posted this interesting observation a while back: I walked my dogs by both the Kentucky Democratic Party Headquesrters and the Kentucky Republican Party Headquarters not long ago. Outside the Republican headquarters were signs supporting Romney/Ryan and all the other Republicans running locally, state and nationally. In front of Democrat HQ were several signs and a banner for the local state representantive and some signs for U.S. Rep. Ben Chandler, but the names Obama and Biden did not appear anywhere on the building or grounds. Now that's odd.:rofl:

    It looks like Obama is benefited greatly from Ohio's early voting. Note that Ohio doesn't have quite the electoral 22 like it did, just 18 now. FL gained electoral. Nevertheless, At this point Mitt can only muster 261, unless something happens in Iowa, OH, WI, and NV.

    Even if Mitt is ahead in this state by a percentage point, he would still lose (if polls are correct). He'd have to get more people than that.

    Obama's signs are few and far in between. I'm getting the impression that aren't important as it used to be.

    Quite a few Romney/Ryan signs in my neighborhood (including two in my yard), but not a single Obama sign. There is at least one empty chair with a "Make My Day...Vote Republican" sign by it.

    Well, actually there is one sign supporting a local democrat for office.

    In the liberal stronghold of Princeton NJ, I am seeing more Romney yard signs than Obama yard signs. 5 months ago I would have bet my house and savings that this wouldn't be the case. I am not saying Romney will win NJ, but it is shocking nonetheless.

    Southwest Oklahoma, walking about 1/4 mile a day 2 different routes around my neighborhood the last few days shows only 1 sign, Obama/Biden. I mean, it's nothing like last time............. they're ashamed, I think.

    I suspect it is a car he doesn't approve of.

    I never understood why anyone would car how much gas someone else car burns.
