On Friday, in my neighborhood I saw a car sporting this bumper sticker:
The car had Massachusetts plates. I might call this guy courageous, but wonder how many Hollywood types would understand his message.
It sometimes seems we are seeing more conservative messaging on cars in LA than liberal slogans. Last week, when I asked a (gay Republican) friend if he had seen many Obama bumper stickers here in LA, he replied, “Only the old ones.” Most that I see are those from the ’08 campaign, but there are a few newer ones.
Today the only Obama stickers I saw were in the parking lot at Trader Joe’s.
I saw more Romney bumper stickers on one freeway when I drove to the Glenn Reynold’s shindig in Santa Monica on Thursday than Obama stickers on four freeways when I drove to a Hallowe’en party in Monrovia last night. Now the paucity of Obama stickers is unlikely to make this “blue” state turn “red” this fall, but I did read a report of “Romney signage in Pinellas County [Florida] far outpac[ing] Obama’s.”
FROM THE COMMENTS: A lot of you have been sharing stuff and TGC offers some anecdotal evidence to back up Mitt Romney’s surge in Florida polling:
Here in Polk County Florida, more Romney signs and bumper stickers and yard signs are turning up. For some reason, they just started popping up the past two weeks or so. Don’t know if it was because of the debate performance or what. Very few Obama signs and stickers.
