Here in Michigan...in 2008, in the Detroit area, all you saw were Obama lawn signs, they were everywhere. This year, ive seen just 2. Also, in 2008, outside gas stations in Detroit, the Dems had 2 people registering voters,,,this year, zero..none. The enthusiasm of Obama is simply gone, Michigan will go red.
Okay, I live in a suburb of Seattle, WA; so, there is no chance of WA going red; but, I live next door to an African-American (older) couple and he always, ALWAYS has Democratic candidate signs hanging off his front fence during election season. We have lived next door to this couple for over 30 years --- always the same.
Last election, Obama/Biden signs on his fence --- this year, none, zero, nada. There is one sign for a local man running for a State Rep seat; but, no Obama/Biden sign. I am gob-smacked about that. If the "O" has lost my neighbor, he is in deep trouble.
I am seeing the same thing here in Oakland County. Last election it was Obama signs by 5 to 1, yet this year there are very few and the vast majority is Romney. Saw the same thing on a visit into Macomb County last week. I would be surprised if Michigan goes red ... but it is possible.
