Political Yard Signs
Tell More Than a
Candidate's Name

American Thinker, by Noel S. Williams

Original Article

Posted By:magnante, 10/8/2012 11:08:41 AM

Political signs on private residential property are unlikely to sway undecided voters, but they do say something about the owners' personal values. Lawn maintenance and general property upkeep also reflect one's values. After casually surveying my neighborhood during my daily jogging jaunts, I noticed a pattern: Unkempt lawns have more signs supporting Democrat candidates, whereas neat properties proudly sport signs favoring Republican candidates.

For the first time in my adult life, there is NO sign in my yard. Why? FEAR of retribution. No bumper sticker either, as I don't want my car keyed.
If Obama loses, I don't want to invite trouble. Great country you created, Obama.

In '08 there were 0dumbo signs everywhere here in DE. To date I have seen just 2! Also, only three bumper stickers and one was from '08. I find it encouraging.

#3 - Ditto from The Glorious Heroic Peoples Revolutionary Soviet of Austin. In '08, Obama yard signs and bumper stickers were everywhere. You could drive anywhere and see literally 4 or 5 at the same time.

Now in 2012, I have only seen a couple dozen Obie stickers, and only 4 or 5 yard signs. Even here in Moonbat Central, Odumbo is no longer the Messiah.

Same observations here.
The most awful yards, gone to weeds, sport Obama.Biden signs.
Junky cars, too.

#2, you are not alone. On Michelle Malkin's Twitchy website, they have catalogued dozens of tweets from lunatics bragging about peeing on Romney signs, ripping Romney bumper stickers off of cars, keying cars with Romney stickers, etc... One person had their boat and Romney sign graffitied. Some include photographs.

They say they have yet to find a tweet from a Romney supporter doing the same regarding Obama paraphernalia.

As a voter from the swing state of Ohio, I noticed this at least a month ago. In 2008, there were Obama signs and bumper stickers all over the place. Contrast to 2012 and I can count the total I have seen to date on two fingers. I am seeing Romney/Ryan signs, not alot, but some.

All of my friends are for Romney.. Agree with number two. I do not want my car, lawn or mailbox valdalized as in 2008.

The first sign in my yard this political season reads:

FIRE OBAMA

I will NOT be intimidated. You should not fear, #2.

Unfortunately, I have found it necessary to attach a small note on my political signs which reads, "Be sure to smile for the video camera."
And mind you, I live in a 'nice' area. Leftist lunatics are rarely nice, however.
But I repeat: I will NOT be intimidated.

we rent a house but the slumlord set it up like a multi-unit property with people underneath us and behind us. Anyway, our yard is not so great but my roommate and I vote a straight R ticket. But in general, I agree with the author's assessment.

There is a very valuable multi acre property near me. Last cycle it was the only home to have a Zero sign in the lawn. This year it is the only one to have a for sale sign...and it has for months now.

I don't put out signs or attach bumper stickers, either. Just an invitaion for a moron to vandalize your property.
I do not see any Obama/Biden signs in yards at all. Have only seen a handful of bumper stickers. Starting to see quite a few R/R yard signs but I live in a pretty conservative neighborhood in the evil suburbs of Dallas.

Three of our neighbors (we live in a townhouse) are 0bama supporters who don't keep their grass mowed. My husband has done it for them many times, but since they rarely pay him for gas and don't thank him, he will no longer help them. Instead, we will leave them to the mercy of the landscaping company which has a contract with our HOA. The HOA has now mandated that the landscaping company can mow private property which is being neglected, without the homeowners' consent, and the homeowners will be charged for it by the HOA. Serves them right.

I can verify what #4 said. I also live in the Soviet Socialist Repulik of Austin, TX.

In 2008, There were N∅bama signs everywhere. He came to town for a rally, and it was outside and had probably 20,000 people in attendance. 90% of the cars you saw on the road had N∅bama bumper stickers on them.

I rode through my old neighborhood, and not one house has a N∅bama sign in the yard this year (where I'm sure 75% of them did last time). I have seen so few cars with N∅bama 2012 bumpter stickers on them that it actually surprises me to see one. When N∅bama came to town a couple of months ago, they moved his rally to an indoor theather, and I don't think 2,000 people showed up.

If the ''thrill'' is gone in an uber-lie-beral place like Austin, I just can't see how N∅bama is actually still in this thing at all. I sure hope I'm not wrong...

I've seen the same phenomena where I live and I just assume that the messy yards and shabby houses with the zippy signs are owned or rented by people getting government bennies. If that makes me a judgmental snob, oh well.

I'm currently on a business trip in the Bay area and have driven all over from San Jose to Modesto. I've seen one 0bama bumper sticker and no yard signs. Could it be because gas hit $5 a gallon here this weekend? My sister lives in a Chicago suburb and reports the same thing in an area that was littered in zippy signs four years ago. Talk about an enthusiasm deficit.

In a different forum, there was a lady (from Ohio) who reported on her canvasing experiences for Romney. She spent hours going from door to door. The number of Obama supporters were very few and non-committal, but the number of Romney supporters were rather overwhelming. People were all fired up to vote. She met many independents who were also committed to voting for Romney. She was expecting a hard time based on what the polls were stating for Ohio, and she was pleasantly surprised

My home town is a very liberal college town - virtually no-one is putting out yard signs or using bumper stickers - vandalism really curbs one's style. Our 'We the People' car sticker invited being spat at - uck - . There are some nut cases sporting mini forests of yard signs of every democrat candidate for miles around - very tempting for some midnight sabotage - but have so far restrained the urge.

I don't see a lot of yard signs out in my area, but I do see lots of bumper stickers. My rule of thumb for them: 1 or 2 is normal, 3 or 4 a bit bossy, 5-6 control freak. More than 6 avoid at all costs, and are invariably far, far left liberals.

As a bonus, I'll throw in my theory on males driving big red trucks: 80% drive like weenies - the truck proves their manhood. 10% drive like maniacs because, hey, it's a big red truck. The other 10% drive like normal people and just like the color red.

I live in a conservative county in PA. I have noticed something a bit different and maybe a little encouraging? In my neighborhood and the surrounding area there is a mix of 'classes'. Oddly, the homes owned by strictly middle and lower middle classes all have RR signs on their lawns. the 'upper crust' have OB signs on theirs.
That gives me hope that 0bama's target audience is not buying his assertion that RR wants to destroy the middle class.
All they want are job opportunities; give them that and they'll take it the rest of the way...... No one in my area is looking for free phones or handouts.

All the Romney/Ryan and Tim Scott signs spotted yesterday have disappeared. Two lonely signs for liberal candidates are the only ones visible.

I should add that a road running through our neighborhood is often used by non-residents as a short-cut. I doubt that anyone in the neighborhood did this. They're heavily retired or active military.

I've seen a few O. signs, but mostly R & R in my Demonrat town. I did see two O. signs that made me laugh. One had a big X through the O & B sign, and the other one was bright orange with Defeat Obama in big, bold letters.

The R and R folks have multiple signs and they are kept in close proximity to the front doors, a deterrent to theft I suppose.

How does the Republican Party establishment choose its presidential candidate? Typically, constitutionalists accuse their establishment rivals of being moderate, risk-averse, stubborn old fools who lack faith in conservative principles. This is a soothing interpretation, as it begins from the hypothesis that the contest between conservatives and the GOP elite is a family feud. But there is another hypothesis -- less soothing, but, at least from an outsider´s bird´s-eye view, more reconcilable with the facts. This hypothesis is that America has reached a stage of progressive soft despotism in which the only important family feud in national politics is between the fundamentally

Battleground Polls and Conservative Strength

The latest Battleground Poll, compared with prior Battleground Polls, shows the percentage of Americans who describe themselves as “conservative” dropping. The percentage is lower than almost any Battleground Poll in the last fifteen years. The percentage of Americans who call themselves “liberal,” by contrast, is at an all-time high. Modification in the demographics of the poll sample may have something to do with the change. Women form 53% of the sample, while women are 50.6% of the population.

House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Darrell Issa, R-Calif., has accused the panel´s top Democrat of prompting the Internal Revenue Service in 2012 to target a conservative organization applying for nonprofit status. Issa said records obtained last week from the IRS show communications from the office of ranking member Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., about True the Vote, a Texas-based, nonprofit conservative group that aims to prevent voter fraud.

A caveat right off the bat: RAND’s estimate only runs through March 28 whereas the actual deadline for signing up was March 31st. Given the crush of traffic on Healthcare.gov in late March, many more people could have signed up over those last three days than were captured by these numbers. On the other hand, the White House was claiming six million sign-ups as of March 27. There’s no way to reconcile that with RAND’s data. One of them is wrong. Maybe both, in fact.

A founding father of the conservative movement who is now a star among Tea Party activists is urging the GOP to choose a governor to duel Washington “insider” Hillary Clinton for the White House, saying that 2016 isn´t the best time for Sen.

Viguerie believes that the Texas senator is a “game changer” for the movement but that the best way to beat Clinton is with a candidate from outside the beltway. “I don´t think it would be best for the conservative movement for

As a former President of The Most Powerful Country In The World, George W Bush has significantly greater access to world leaders than most budding artists. (Snip) Art critics have pointed out that a number of the 30 portraits in the exhibition appear to be based on images thrown up by a cursory search of the person´s name in Google Images. In some cases the portrait seems to have been based on the very first image result on the search engine. Rather remarkably, even the portrait of his own father, someone who he surely could have asked to sit for him, appears to be based on an Associated Press portrait which appears on the first page of

This morning I clicked on a link to a Red State website article concerning “The War on Women” and “Paycheck Equality” and got quite a surprise (the same thing happens when a Firefox user goes directly to the article). Nanny Firefox posted a political opinion on my screen before allowing me to proceed to read the article. This message didn’t appear when I accessed a second article which met with Firefox’s political commissar’s approval. Here’s what Firefox said: Careful Now! (shouldn’t they have said “Achtung! or “Verboten!” or something similar?). This website could not be displayed by Firefox because it is not

On Wednesday, the House Ways and Means Committee voted to refer former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner to the Department of Justice for criminal prosecution. By a vote of 23 to 14, a closed-door session of the House committee determined that Lerner’s role in the alleged singling out of conservative groups seeking tax-exempt status for undue scrutiny was a criminal act. The vote was “just another attempt by Republicans to vilify Ms. Lerner for political gain,” according to the ex-IRS official’s attorney, William Taylor. In spite of the fact that the DOJ has already been investigating both Lerner and the alleged

Hillary Clinton’s upcoming memoir of her time in the Obama Administration will be released on June 10, according to a website for the book. The book, which will be published by Simon & Shuster, will cover key moments during her time as Secretary of State, a position she held from 2009 to early 2013. Clinton also shares her thoughts on how to “navigate the challenges of the 21st century,”according to the website. It will be her second memoir after 2003´s Living History. The publisher has not yet released a title or a design of the book’s sleeve, though its contents are highly anticipated in the period leading up to the 2016 Presidential election.
