    I know all of the people in my neighborhood and the only ones voting for Biden are a retired teacher couple that are still hippies. But nobody is putting a sign in the yard of a $300-500k property around here. For either candidate. The only people I see putting signs in their yard(small town KY that will go 70/30 for Trump) are a few old people in old neighborhoods and farms or small houses in 'lower socioeconomic' neighborhoods and it can go either way on who they are supporting.

    These are people that don't pay attention to politics, but see "orange man bad" daily bashing on their CNN app or on twitter. They don't have the slightest clue about the anti-white, anti-suburb, anti-law enforcement, pro criminal, pro tax increase platform that Democrats are pushing. Like the Democrats in California and New York, they flee once their policies start effecting their wallet or safety. They won't admit they are wrong or try to fix the issues. They move to Conservative ares and ruin those with their tried and true failed Democrat policies.

    In my suburb of a swing state I'm seeing more Trump than Biden signs. Quite a few more and a lot of American flags that weren't out before as well.

    I remember well throughout the 90's the perception of the Republican party was old, rich, and white people. While they said the Democrats were the party of the working class. That's far from the reality now. Democrats have abandoned the working class and saddled up to the billionaires.

    My thought 'zactly! Like garlic to a vampire they think a BLM sign will repel BLM if or when they come to town. I also think it's flawed reasoning because BLM/antifa don't care. They're just there to damage, riot, frighten and burn anything they want. There IS no repellant save for a well-armed police presence (can't count on that) or National Guard.

    In my part of Central Texas, I have only seen a couple of Biden signs and exactly 2 Biden bumper stickers. Trump signs and flags are everywhere. In my neighborhood which I consider reasonably upper middle class and fairly ethnically diverse ( retired school administrators, retired police officers, retired military officers and senior NCOs, current mid to upper grade civil service and so forth), located next to a golf course, we have exactly 1 Biden sign and a couple of dozen Trump flags and signs. The bigger issue here is a State Legislature race with the incumbent Republican being challenged by a relative newcomer to the area who has received massive amounts of funding from Bloomberg and associates.

    Oh yes. That election was a mess. I voted for Mo Brooks in the primary and never cared for Roy Moore. After it was too late to remove Moore's name from the ballot for the special election, sexual misconduct allegations came out. A very effective political hit on a flawed candidate. Currently, Tuberville has a 17% lead over Jones in the polls. I expect that Jones will be the last Democrat senator from AL in my lifetime. We have six Republicans and one Democrat in congress. How is your state doing?

    I don't see many signs for either candidate. But at the ones I've seen it is usually more likely to see the colors flying at Trump houses. It is rare to see an American Flag flying on Biden houses. Just an observation that may not hold true everywhere.

    30 miles south of Boston here. A little more rural, a little more blue collar.

    A mix, but I think Trump signs get the edge. If you go a little closer to the coast or to Boston, both of which is where the real estate prices are higher...all of “my betters” are voting for Biden...

    Kentucky will vote solidly for Trump, probably 60-40. Take away Louisville and Lexington and it would be 80-20. In my neighborhood in central Ky., a development of $300,000-$700,000 homes, I know of only two that may vote for Biden. The rest, approximately 65 homes, are all for Trump, and Trump signs and banners are all you see. I have two posted on my property.

    Out in far West Texas - there is lots and lots of American Flags and Trump signs and flags,
    I think I have seen one Biden sticker.

    We just returned from a almost 1,000 mile round trip up to Choctaw Casino in Durant, Oklahoma to go and play the pokersszzzz....& gambool...

    There was hundreds of Trump Flags and Banners out. I don't think we saw one for Biden.

    It's still true many are afraid to put out signs or flags for fear of what leftist POS will do. Democrats don't have that fear with putting out Hiden/Hooker signs.

    Drive through voting just announced in Houston at the Texan's football stadium courtesy of the NFL's donation to BLM.

    JJ Watt told us that kneeling during the anthem has nothing to do with the flag.

    Either he's dumb or easily swayed by his family and friends.

    Trump is big here and on my street. Only one Biden sign that I've seen.

    For over 1500 years in European society, people bought indulgences. It was thought that you went to heaven if you gave some currency to an organization that supposedly supported the poor. So, a person feels he has earned a higher social standing by mouthing slogans.

    If you asked a liberal to go to Africa and live like Albert Schweitzer, he would decline. If you asked him to volunteer to work at the local police station, ring the bell at Christmas for the Salvation Army without pay, do volunteer work at the local hospital, he would be too busy.
