Spent part of the day motoring through Milwaukee, where I saw several prominent “Romney/Ryan” yard signs in front of private residences. While there were also some signs promoting Zero and other Democrats, the neighborhood seemed to be equally divided.
Milwaukee is usually reliably Democratic, so I took the presence of the Republican signs to mean that Obama is going to have trouble holding his base in what should be a normally liberal voting district. Wisconsin looks to be in play.
Never been there, but I sensed a groundswell with the Governor, the recall, the showdown with the unions, and oh yes, my hero SP there last spring on a raw day.
Bring the Rust Belt back- it was the first strong arm of US industrialism. We won two World Wars with the strength of the industrial North!
In my subdivision in NE Ohio there were no political signs for national campaigns, then about three weeks ago, someone plopped an Obama sign up in their yard along a very well traveled street.
No one ripped the Obama sign down, or vandalized their car or home, but Romney signs started popping up all around that house, and continued for blocks away.
My 9 year old son commented that if he were that guy, he would take the Obama sign down, even if he was gonna vote for him, so his neighbors would like him still...
