Noticing a lack of "Trump" bumper stickers?
Maybe it's still too soon, but normally when a candidate has a huge following (like Trump does)....like Obama did, you see people touting their campaign paraphernalia everywhere. Why not for Trump? Not that you will never see a Trump sticker or shirt, but you'll never see crowds of openly supportive people, like you did for Obama, or like the Bernie stickers I already see.
I think this says more about the people who are NOT supporting Trump, than it does about the people who are.
Trump has plenty of impassioned followers, who have already made up their minds that they are going to vote for him. I think the fear I am noticing in a lot of people, about publicly coming out to announce they are for Trump, is about the type of people who would key a car with a Trump sticker on it.
Yesterday, I stopped to sign a couple petitions outside of a shopping center, one of them had to do with deportation of illegal immigrants. A young Mexican guy stepped up to sign a petition about legalization of marijuana. He heard that one of the petitions was for deportation, and said "nah I ain't signing that" He turned to look at me (a white woman) and asked "What's she signing?" The man ignored his question, so he asked it again, sounding angry, and the man just said "She is signing a couple different petitions" and the rude guy still continued "yeah but what ones?"
I told him "None of your business, don't worry about it" then he started mumbling some nonsense about how a "stupid woman" will never be president, because that would be stupid to have a woman president. It was really out of context and made no sense, because anyone who knows anything, knows Hillary Clinton will never deport anyone, and I don't want her as president either. His point was to find a way to insult me, because he was so angered by the possibility of me signing the deportation petition.
I started thinking, what would this guy and an army of people just like him do, if they were walking through a parking lot and saw a Trump sticker on a car, and no one was looking? I have no doubt, these are just the type, so threatened and angry about everything they have taken being taken from them, you would start to see a lot of damaged cars. I think Trump supporters all have sensed the mentality they are up against, and That's why I predict they will avoid threat, and stay ambiguous for the meantime, then show themselves at the polls.
stickers are vandalizing now? All i said is watch how people react to the stickers! In your post you claim nothing will happen so which is it nothing or something.

I would assume you have examples then, you know to show the frequency you are talking about.
It is funny because there is post on this thread about vandalizing the cars of sanders/clinton supports and then recording their actions.
Huh, usually they just move it. Well like was said in the other thread, you make some rather large generalizations here. Assuming that people would vandalize others property because of a bumber sticker.
Be observant and intellectually honest.

If someone put something on your property with out your permission would you be ok with it?
Admittedly I am being pretty technical about it, but just ironic that this is about how trump supporters are scared to show their support because of possible backlash about it and how that is wrong and you come in and offer up the exact opposite situation and talk as if it is no big deal.
