Trump wins hands down. I have not seen more than few Hospital signs for Hillary.

Depends on where you live: I have seen more Gary Johnson signs than Trump in Ann Arbor. I've seen 1 Johnson sign. There were lots of Romney signs 4 years ago. Up north, it is the exact opposite.

I've seen dozens of Hillary signs in Ann Arbor... particularly the neighborhoods on the west side of Downtown in my travels. I think the general lack of signs for the presidential candidates speaks volumes as does the fact that there are tons and tons of down ballot signs for commissioners of various kinds...

Yes, not many this year in comparison.

I haven't seen any of those signs around here, in the northern lower peninsula, or the UP.

Definitely waaaaaay less than prior cycles, especially the last two. You still see the occasional Bernie sign.

Here in the Tawas area I've seen far more signs for local elections and the people running for those positions than I have Trump or Hillary signs. Come to think of it I can't recall seeing a single Hillary sign around here. Maybe just a few Trump signs.

We went to close down the cottage for the season. It's near Alpena. So, from the Rose City exit off of 75, up 33, across 32, county roads and all PLUS a ride into Alpena proper: 3 Hillary signs and 44 Trump signs.

How many signs as a predictor of anything is on par with how big rally crowds are, meaning as Seth Meyers put it, if big crowds indicate something then an IKEA on a Saturday morning would be President.

I saw one too... interesting.

Took a group to Hudson Mills Metropark in Dexter this afternoon for a cross country meet and kept this discussion in mind. Got off 94 on Baker Road, headed north through Dexter and out Huron River Drive. Probably 10 houses to 1 for Hillary. Driving around Ann Arbor this week I've seen lots of Hillary signs and no Trunp signs. Not friendly territory for The Donald...
