In my Red state there's something interesting and encouraging this year compared to 2016

During the 2016 campaign my neighborhood was full of Trump signs. That entire year, every day on my walk I would feel like such a loner. There was one and only one house that bravely displayed a Hillary for President sign during my daily 5 mile walk. I took a couple of different routes for variety but each time it was all the same as far as Trump signs go.

This year I have seen ONE Trump sign. I suppose that could change as the election gets closer but all of 2016 there were those signs everywhere. Either the voters are ashamed to say they align with Trump or (what I keep hoping) they're changing their minds and just don't want anyone to know they're voting Biden.

8. Someone in my neighborhood has a Trump flag

It wasn't there in 2016

I didn't see any Trump signs in 2016, but I see a freaking flag now.

13. So they're ashamed, but going to vote for him anyway.

Maybe the Lincoln Project ad people should try and focus on that demographic.

"Ashamed of yourself because you support Trump? Maybe you should follow your gut and just stay home on election day. And for God's sake, get some therapy!"

15. I Would LOVE To Put A Biden Sign In My Yard, But I'm Waiting For A Running Mate

Once he names his running mate, I'm buying a couple of yard signs (you have to have replacements in my neighborhood because Democratic signs have a habit of coming up missing) and a couple of bumper stickers.

17. The trump nuts in my neighborhood took down their obnoxious flag off their obnoxious flag pole

After George Floyd. Yard signs still up. I think they figured the flag made too big of a target and probably have stacks of yard signs.
