I just got back from a road trip and wanted to weigh in on the bumper stickers I saw.
I travelled from the Virginia suburbs of Washington DC to Chicago and then west to Rock Island and back over the course of 5 days. I guess I saw about 20-25 Obama bumper stickers, not counting Chicago, and 1 (!) Romney sticker.
Granted there were a lot of semis on the highways, outnumbering passenger cars for long stretches, but that still seems remarkable to me.
As a side survey, the Schilling and Bustos yard signs in the Illinois Quad Cities were about evenly divided. This is a seat that has been Democratic forever, until Tea Partier Bobby Schilling managed to win it in 2010. He seems to be resorting to the usual lying that all the Rs are doing this year, but doesn't seem to have made a dent. Yesterday's paper said it's the 8th most expensive house race in the country right now.
