As the type of guy that is interested in politics, driving on the road at a time like this in a year like this always makes me excited. Why? Bumper stickers. And signs, those are cool too. In my area, you can always count on seeing predominantly Republican stickers/signs.
But for some reason, I'm not seeing anything this year. What's up with that? I mean, there is that giant Trump/Pence sign up the street, and my sister got a Make America Great Again bumper sticker while trick-or-treating on Halloween (who does this?), but other than that, things are strangely quiet.
Honestly, I was expecting to see a lot of Trump stuff. But I'm not seeing as much as I expected. It's true that when I do see a bumper sticker, it is for Trump 99.9999% of the time. This weekend, I have seen exactly 0 Clinton stickers or signs.
I was just expecting a lot more. Like back in 2008 or 2012, I remember seeing car after car adorned with a sticker advertising the driver's electoral preference, wave after wave of political yard signs. But not this year. It's very empty. Perhaps a symptom of having the two most unpopular candidates of all time?
