I have seen so many political yard signs I'm surprised when I don't see one. Obviously I've seen these stupid things all my life and I've always wondered "who the hell chooses candidate to vote for based on a yard sign?"
Lets face it, if your vote can be swayed by a yard sign then you aren't really committed to the candidate. Seriously does the thought process go like this? "Oh Jim across the street has a yard sign for the other candidate, well he did fix my weed wacker last week I guess he knows what's best, I'll vote for his candidate"
I just don't see the purpose of these things, and before you say "I give $50 to the campaign and they send me the sign" well that's great but guess what if you really wanted to help the campaign you'd give the money and refuse the sign because the sign costs the campaign money, and they have to pay postage to mail it to you. So really all you are doing is buying a sign in your yard to make yourself feel better and make people pay attention to you, it's nothing more than a totally selfish act disguised as a political statement.
So because I want honest answers I'm setting up a poll, your answers will be totally anonymous so tell the truth, have you ever been convinced to vote one way or another because of a yard sign?
And just for fun here are some other the best yard signs I found on Amazon.
