Shortly after arriving in Cincinnati on Monday, I drove into the ‘burbs to watch my second youngest nephew’s soccer scrimmage. In the parking lot, I noticed a great variety of bumper stickers, some about local sports teams, but most about politics.
I saw a good number supporting the Senate campaign of Josh Mandel, but none for his opponent Sherrod Brown, one of the most liberal members of the United States Senate. I saw stickers calling for the repeal of Obamacare, but none expressing support for the legislation overhauling and increasing taxes on our health care system.
And I saw stickers supporting Mitt Romney for president and the Romney-Ryan ticket, but none advocating the reelection of the incumbent or promoting the Obama-Biden ticket.
Now, to be sure, this is just one upper middle class region in Ohio, and don’t know if we can extrapolate much from it, but it does suggest that soccer moms (& dads) in southern Ohio may be lining up behind the Republican ticket.
Did not catch some other anti-Obama stickers, but none this like:
