Voting with your bumpers

I’ve always been a bit of a car aficionado. It’s a bit of a game for me to see how fast I can identify other cars. And lately, I’ve also been paying attention to bumper stickers.

Others have been counting Bush/Cheney stickers vs. Kerry/Edwards stickers, and I haven’t bothered to keep track. But one trend I’ve noticed here in the swing state of Cow Hampshire is that the Kerry/Edwards cars tend to be newer and more expensive, while the Bush/Cheney cars tend to be older and cheaper (and the occasional heaps, like my decade-old Cavalier).

The stereotype has been for years that the Republicans are the party of the rich, while the Democrats are the champions of the poor and the common people. But in this election, it seems to me that the rich are going for Kerry, the richer candidate, while the average and poor folks are backing Bush.

I dunno what the hell it means, if anything, but it strikes me as an interesting phenomenon
