    Around here, any house with a Biden sign does not have an American flag. 100% of the time.

    That appears true. But I have only seen 9 Biden signs. Lots of Trump stuff in WY, MT. Including a neat “TRUMP TRAIN out of round hay bales.

    I just told my wife the same thing the night before! When ive been out driving, riding my bicycle or walking, ive kinda kept a count of biden/trump signs. I just NEVER see biden and the flag together. I have seen many flags out and no political signs. I just assumed they are conservative.

    I have seen a couple BLM signs next to the biden sign.
    WHITE neighborhoods. Virtue signaling to the nth power.
    They are also the type to wear a mask while driving alone. Or sleeping.

    Funny you mention that, after some thought that seems to hold true around here.

    I've noticed that also. 90 percent of the time when I see a Trump sign I notice our flag being displayed. Goes to show ya who has pride in our country.

    Same here. Lots of flags. Many Trump signs. One BLM sign and one Biden sign.

    A farmhouse on the road next to us had aTrump sign. But when they put the house up for sale they removed the sign and put up a flag.

    Pretty sure the realtor advised that.

    And huge number of houses with just a sign for the Republican challenging the incumbent Democrat congressman.

    (A tale of the two parties today: the Dem is a spoiled inherited wealth virtue signaler and the Republican is a black woman raised on her grand mom's hog farm.)

    If i were selling my place, the TRUMP SIGNS would have to stay!
    If it keeps a liberal or democrat from buying my place, i have won!

    I saw my first and only Biden yard sign this week.

    I also saw my first and only Biden bumper sticker.

    His popularity must be skyrocketing to see that much support in the same week.

    (No US flags seen in association with these sightings).

    Here in Lancaster Ohio (central OH), many if not most yards with Biden signs also have a black sign that reads "END RACISM". I may make up some black signs that read "47 YEARS" for those dears.

    My neighborhood has a couple of Biden signs with a US flag, but it's not many. Your observation seems to be true in most cases.

    So I saw a pickup with a "Honk for Trump" sign on it.
    Of course I did.
    I have seen ZERO Honk For joe signs.............ZERO!
    I see most biden signs in older neighborhoods, with, well, less educated or under- employed people living there, in dumpy houses. Go figure, right?
