Memorial Day Travel and the 2012 Bumper Sticker Battle

The influence of bumper stickers on election outcomes can certainly be questioned (They have an effect?), but if my trip from Georgia to North Carolina and back (through early primary state, South Carolina, mind you) is any indication, then 2012 will be fought between Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin.

Mitt had some support in the Charlotte area...

...and Sarah had her's on an Alabama RV in the Gaffney area of northeastwest South Carolina.

If you judge the race solely by bumper stickers, Obama is probably winning South Carolina in 2012.

How is Gaffney in northeastern South Carolina?

Josh Putnam said...

I meant East Gaffney. Ha!

Good catch. LOOOOOOONG weekend.

Normally I wouldn't raise such a minor quibble; I just love correcting you on matters pertaining to the South.

Josh Putnam said...

No, that needed to be corrected. It isn't like I haven't driven through there 500 times in my life.

Wait a minute; there's been more than one mistake on this blog? I may need to hang it up.
