    Whose political signs do you see in your neighborhood? Do you see more McCain signs or more Obama signs?

    so far about the same, most are for Ky elections, governor, etc. I get sick of seeing these everywhere you look, you can't look outside anywhere and not see them. I would consider them littering. the people who put them there never come back after elections and remove them, it's trash thats been abandoned on people lawns. Littering here carries up to $500. fine. I'm sure people placing these signs and not removing them never get fined.

    I live in a rural area but close to a big city. In my rural county, I would say it is about 67% McCain signs. If you go to the big city, it's a different story.

    McCain. And as a matter of fact I went to get a McCain yard sign myself on Saturday at a Republican headquarters and they were out. They said that they had over a thousand to give out and by afternoon they were gone! :thumbs:

    I went yesterday and got a McCain sign for my yard. So far, no Obama signs in my neighborhood, but there is one at the corner of the main street and our neighborhood street.

    How about this answer "Don't know and couldn't care less"?

    I hate yard signs. Why does the whole neighborhood need to know who I'm voting for? Why do they have little private booths in the first place? They may as well have a huge projection TV above each machine.

    In our whole town, I have yet to see an Obama sign.. McCain/Palin signs are everywhere.... No wonder they call WV "Almost Heaven"...

    I live in Paradise!

    On my corner there are 5 houses of people who work for the USGovernment, Military, first level contractors, or who are retired USGovernment/Military. The 6th house is a legal Alien from Nigeria who wants to be a citizen. There are no campaign signs.

    Both streets down to the next corner (35 house total) are pretty devoid of campaign signs. There are a couple of house church signs - just no campaign signs.

    Around the University town I live in, looks like Obama wins (60% to 40% )signs-wise. I also keep track of empty lot signs (illegal in our town) - that indicates whose campaigners are willing to disobey the law - Obama clearly wins (80% to 20%). Extra seasonal workers are hired by the County to take down road right-of-way signs, they are illegal.

    we live in a rural area that is about 2-1 democrat, with no party offices for either side in our community...so there is a very slight Obama lead.

    Running about 3-1 Obama here -- perhaps even more. I don't know if that is how the vote will turn out, though I suspect Obama will win in the local precinct. Most McCain supporters I know are not the "bumper sticker" or "yard sign" type of people so it 's hard to tell.

    Mostly near my house they're McCain signs. But on my Bus route the was a sign that was Obama and there was an McCain sticker in the middle of it. My thinking was that must be one of those "UNDECIDED People" LOL

    I have seen hardly any signs around here. More McCain signs as Arkansas is a cinch for McCain. There is hardly anything in the way of competitive races for local or statewide races so no need for signs for those. There's even very little interest being shown for any of the ballot initiatives. Shaping up to be a rather ho hum election in Arkansas from the presidential level on down.
