I’m literally surrounded by Obama campaign offices; there’s three within a ten minute drive of my house. Still, checking in with them, none have yard signs, stickers, buttons, or anything else. I canvassed for Obama last Saturday, and the campaign office had nothing except pamphlets. No signs, no nothing The buttons they had were leftovers; “Republicans for Obama” and “Veterans for Obama” were about it.
During the last election, it was easy to find Kerry election paraphernalia. I remember there being a LOT more cars with Kerry stickers four years ago than Obama stickers now, and I don’t think that’s due to a lack of support for Obama around these parts; the eastern suburbs of Cleveland tend to be quite liberal-leaning.
So, why is there such a shortage of Obama campaign materials? My GF has a thepry that people are hoarding them for future sale on eBay if Obama doesn’t see the end of his term,
