Just drove by a small business in our town that has been decked out with Trump signs for weeks.
They have had large signs offering hats and t-shirts for sale. There have been large banners, flags flying and posters all over the front of the building. It looked like Trump Central.

This morning they are all gone. The only thing I could see was a small white sign out by the street that said "Trump 2020 hats" listed with some of the other tool and machinery items they sell.

Were the items stolen? Did the owner have a change of heart? I don't know, but they are all gone.

They sold them all.  :whatever:

1. There's a "Trump Shop" located locally (Iowa) that was selling all kinds of flags, wall hangings, T-shirts, hats, etc. I happened to be buying something in the store next door, and when I came out, I noticed this place.

I was incredibly tempted to stick my head in the door and yell, "Hey, how much do you plan on discounting this stuff after he dies??"

3. I was talking to a friend last night who lives in a small town just north of here.

There is a trashy single wide trailer on the outskirts of town that has been similarly decked out with Trump memorabilia. She said that it's all gone now, as well. Again, we don't know if it was stolen or if someone had a change of heart. It will be interesting to see how the next month goes.

This is deep red country. In 2016 Trump won the state with 60.57% of the vote, and Clinton received 33.65% of the vote. The Republican candidate has carried Arkansas in every election since 2000.

10. I see the pop-up trump stores around here from time to time.

They're usually set up in a parking lot and are just as you described with banners and flags.

They're always temporary, usually pop-up somewhere else a few days later.

Paging Tess Anderson.  Could you perhaps check out this DUmp monkey? If you haven't done before.

There are roadside booths selling Trump 2020 flags, banners, shirts, beach towels, hats and other things all over the streets in Orange County, CA.  Haven't seen one biden roadside booth.

Many of the boats in Dana Point harbor are flying American Flags and Trump flags.  A few with biden flags but I'd hazard a guess the mix is 98% Trump, 2% biden.
Trump Won.  Get over it!

With the videos I've seen on YouTube and elsewhere, my guess is the missing Trump paraphernalia was stolen by those who hate anyone that thinks differently than they do and want to shut down their free speech and expression, I.E. radical leftists.

All of this will be used by the DUmmies when Trump wins to cry FOUL!  Stolen election!!  All the evidence is right here on DU!!  Just look at the links I posted showing people were taking down their signs!!

 :lmao:

They seem just as smug as they did 4 years ago despite saying they weren't going to be after that trouncing.  Everywhere I look I see democrats destroying their cities and the democrat leadership simply allowing it, and people are taking notice.  The American populace is not stupid as a whole.  You can pull the wool over some folks eyes quite often, but the democrats are trying to pull the whole sheep over their eyes and it's not working.

I still have yet to see a Biden sign in this entire county.  There weren't many Clinton ones four years ago, but so far the Biden count is ZERO.

If sign-count is any indication of electoral performance, where I live, "free eggs" is destined for a landslide against Joe Biden.

I've seen a few biden signs in hipster neighborhoods, a couple in the county and around the colleges. Nobody tries to steal them since they're a handy indicator of where the nut jobs live

I had a few minutes to kill the other day waiting on a prescription to be filled so I decided to ride around town and look for Biden signs. I’d seen Trump signs and flags everywhere, but I hadn’t seen the first Biden sign. After about 10 minutes I finally found a section of town with Biden signs. There were 5 of them. Trump is toast or something.

I have only seen 2 Biden signs. They were in the same yard.

There's only on Biden sign in my neighborhood, and it looked scribbled in crayon on a piece of wood.

I have seen crudely made Build Back Better signs (what a stupid campaign tag line this is) on the freeway overpasses in the south bay but nothing official.

In a three County area around me here in Nevada I have seen maybe 5-6 joe and his hoe signs, now Trump signs and flags are everywhere including my yard.  :-)

Not even unions are openly supporting Biden this year, or hardly any Democrats this year. I've driven past the halls of 4 local unions and I've seen 1 Biden sign and only a dozen or so signs total between the 4 halls.  Unions are not into this election at all.

That being said, I've belonged to a union for over 30 years and the local has only sent out two letters about this election. One was just a generic letter about being registered and how to vote by mail or absentee.

The other one was a plea to cut off our dicks and support the state Democrat's effort to pass a progressive tax amendment.
