I have noticed that there is a SEVERE lack of "Presidential" campaign signs in my area. NOTHING like it was in 2008. I mean......I don't even see bumper stickers of support for either candidate.
When I drive through the Black neighborhoods to picks up my kids.....nothing. No Obama signs.
Other parts of town......nothing.
Not even bumper stickers.
I think people are TRULY afraid. This is TRULY CREEPY!
There is a great family around the corner, bless their hearts, who have a sign that says "Vote Like Your Freedoms Depend On It". And I smile every time I pass it.......but NOTHING else.
I think people are afraid. Afraid to voice their opinion because of retaliation.
I NEVER thought we would become a country like this. But, here we are.

Dem voters are embarrassed, and Rep voters don’t want to get their cars keyed.
same here..someone usually offers me one.
Indicates low voter turnout... we WIN when there’s a low turnout.
This bodes well for Romney / Ryan, I think. Very few are still in love with Barry. But many don’t want to be “against” him (by showing outward support for Romney) in order to avoid the shitstorm from idiots on the other side: vandalism, accusations of racism, etc.
Obama supporters slice tires.
Republicans and conservatives where I live are afraid any public Romney support will result in violence from the democrats (code word for AAs).
I noticed the same thing here the other day. No bumper sticker or signs, other then my neighbor who has a Romney yard sign.
Last week I seen my first and to date only "Romney2012" sticker on the back of a car.
America is being Blakanzied like you said. Support the wrong candidate who is "against" one particular ethnic group and you are inviting trouble.
That is one of Ubama's biggest goals in his next term. He must divide this nation down as many lines as he can, so he or his successors can exploit that to the hilt.
Divide and Conquer.
Along the same lines ... I have yet to (in the last three elections (state and national)) see any political signs that indicate any party affiliation.
I wrote the following on another thread earlier tonight:
We were talking about this earlier today. Remember all the pro-Obama bumper stickers and signs you saw in 2008? Well, when you are out tomorrow notice how few of them are around this election cycle. I have been paying close attention to this for a couple of weeks, we are now less than 60 days out and it seems that there is a lot less enthusiasm for Bozo. I think this is a very encouraging sign, no pun intended, for R&R!
If you all are seeing anything different out there in your communities, I would interested to hear about it!
I don’t know what it means, if anything, but I had to pick my son up from the Birmingham airport this evening. I drove through several heavily black areas on the way. I saw exactly one Obama/biden yard sign.
Many states are all ready decided and the money is being focused on the “swing” states. One of the good things about living is California I don’t have to see a bunch of Obama adds.
Here in Virginia, we are seiing more Romney signs and fewer Obama signs. Four years ago it was loaded with Obama yard signs.
May mean nothing, or that the Reps are better organized this year, or that Obama’s appeal has faded. It is just unusual to see more Republican presidential yard signs than Democrat.
I’m in Texas but I have only seen one sign, in the street being stepped on and run over for days, an Obama sign. There are signs for other races but nada on the big one.
I’ve noticed the same thing. I’m in a state that Obama has no chance of winning this time around. I see hardly in signs or bumper stickers for either candidate.
What state are you in? I think most of the effort will be placed in the swing states. I don’t think you will see very much in NY or CA.
Nothing here either.
The 45 million Americans on food stamps might not be happy with Romney voters.
Sure . . . why not. It works for Islamic lunatics.
Same thing here in my neighborhood in eastern Wa State. 76 houses in this development, exactly one sign (Romney). It is actually the only Romney house sign I have ever seen. Earlier there were a couple of Herman Cain signs. There were a scattering of Obama signs in 2008 but not now.
