This would be GQ material if I suspected that there were any real studies on this. But I don’t, so I’ll just see what people have noticed in their experience.
Has anyone noticed if the prevalence of bumper stickers and signs for one candidate tends to be reflected in election results? (In an area that is actually in contention, that is- obviously the lack of Bush bumper stickers in a place like Massachusetts, for example, would accurately reflect the leanings there.)
I’ve been seeing a lot of Bush/Cheney bumper stickers around here. As someone who does not wish to see Bush re-elected, this has me worried. Given Ohio’s apparent importance in the upcoming election and the very “average American” quality of the Dayton-area population, I feel like my side is doomed if the local populace favors Bush. Am I right to read anything into the number of bumper stickers, or does one side just tend to be louder than the other?
