Observation on the road - Driving from Ohio to Florida [View all]

Spent the last 3 days on the road from Ohio to Clearwater Florida.

Thursday, I drove from Cleveland to Savannah GA. I did not see one Romney sticker on a car until I got to Savannah. The vehicle had 2 stickers, maybe they had to reassure themselves with the second sticker.

It wasn't until I was in Florida that I saw stickers that were negative toward Obama and the few that I saw were radical stuff and they were all offset by the numbers of Obama stickers I have seen in Florida.

One of the cars with the most radical of stickers started to chase me when I passed them on the highway. I have an Obama sticker on back. They were going dow the highway right at or below the speed limit, I zoomed past them at a round 5 over. Went I went by the car, I glanced that way and they looked like they were not voting their best interest.

They chased me from Orlando to just outside Tampa. I was a little afraid to let them catch up with me, I don't usually get concerned when I pass a vehicle and they have to pass me back again. Something here made me think, it was a little more than just passing to pass.

One thing for sure, this election is on everyones menu. While spending a day in Savannah, I walked out of a shop because the shop keeper was blasting Biden's performance the night before with belligerent rhetoric. On the way out, I said, I vote with my wallet.
Out to dinner earlier this evening at a popular tourist trap in Clearwater Beach, I could hear several tables around us discussing the election. Each table had one that was all RR and the rest were not that into either Romney or Ryan.
