Anchorage Bumper Stickers 2012: Obama vs. Romney
I counted 11 Obama 2012 stickers and zero Romney 2012 ones. I also noted eight anti-Obama stickers, all on pickup trucks, or on mini-vans with Christian fish symbols on the rear end.
There were more leftover McCain-Palin 2008 bumper stickers on vehicles than new stickers for all candidates combined.
I never brought out the camera.
Listening to local AM rightwing talk radio, most of the blowhards are dismissive of Obama, and sound sincere when they talk that talk. But when it comes to touting Romney, they just can't pull off sounding convincing.
Will this apparent lack of enthusiasm for Romney - even though he won both the 2008 and 2012 Alaska GOP Caucuses - translate into marginal advantages for Democratic candidates in our legislative races?
Let's hope so.
