So I’m driving to work today along the same highway I use every day to get to work and I see the same two Romney-Ryan signs in the grassy area between northbound and southbound traffic. These signs have been there since well before election day, possibly placed in the ground only days after Ryan was named as Romney’s running mate.
So who is winning the 2012 Left Call “Front Yard Sign” Poll (South Carolina style)? Before revealing the results, I’ll preface by saying that this poll closely resembles Obama’s performance in the first presidential debate. In other words, it ain’t pretty. After driving around various Myrtle Beach, South Carolina neighborhoods today the unofficial 2012 Left Call “Front Yard Sign” Poll goes to Romney-Ryan in a landslide. In fact, its a clean sweep. Not one Obama-Biden sign in a 2 hour survey of front yards. In fact, the only Obama signs that could be found are affixed to my 2011 Honda Fit (the unofficial Obama-mobile) as I drive through neighborhoods, offering friendly waves to residents who are out walking their dogs. And in many cases there were 3 or 4 houses in a row with Romney-Ryan signs. Of course these results should not come as a surprise as South Carolina is the state that still flies the confederate flag on it’s statehouse.
