I am proud to be a Trump supporter. I would like to see other Trump supports come out of the closet, but some fear leftist violence.

I don't need a sign to decide who I'm voting for, but there are millions in this country that think they do, why is that?

Jenn - 1994 was before my time. Anyone is better suited for the job, anyone, even Biden, than Trump. Vote for who ever you want, as a card carrying adult over 18, I can ridicule any other adult that votes for a serial liar and alledged rapist.

Cammie Rodgers. So it would be okay if we put up a Biden/Harris sign...... you ridicule people who vote differently than you, instead of being an adult. One of the reasons Trump was elected in the first place. I guess you can always put up a Biden sign stating you agreed with the 94' crime bill which devastated the black/minority community.

The people putting up Trump/Pence signs have no shame, humility or respect for the office of the President of the United States of America.

Are there any "Trump for Prison 2021" signs, shirts, etc.? I'd buy those.

If there were a T-shirt that said "VOTE OUT THE LOUT" I might wear it.

The vandalism to Biden signs is extensive and out of hand. However, our law enforcement is arresting and charging the vandals when caught. Also, know that each case of vandalism results in lots of donations to Biden's campaign. So, the vandals are actually fundraisers for Biden. Sweet.

I have several signs in my front yard, my neighbor across the street has a sign supporting a different candidate in their yard. I don't mess with their sign and they don't mess with mine. We still wave to each other when we pass because we are adults. Now I used to live in Fairfax County so showing my support for Conservatives, I would feel scared for my property and myself.

I'd love to, but local news stories like this make it seem like the conservative movement would threaten the lives of those who express an opinion other than theirs. And they have a lot of guns, so...

The quote from this story goes:

"The letter warned, "If you are a Biden-Harris supporter, you will be targeted. We have a list of homes by your election signs. We will not comply or give anything up, especially our guns."

I don't feel safe doing that, too many violent crazies out there that would do harm to me, or my family, or my property, just because they don't support the same person that I support.

As much as I would like to show my support for the Biden/Harris ticket, unfortunately there are far too many Trump crazies around here for me to feel safe doing so. Sad but true.

From a friend in Alaska :

I hear the righties claiming there's a silent Trump supporter group, people who support Trump but won't say so out loud.

If anything, this is backwards. Here in a red state (Alaska), there is widespread pressure not to publicly support Biden or any other Democrat, whom the rightie ads all say are all socialists who want to raise taxes, weaken the country, take away private health insurance, pee on your lawn, dump dog crap on your doorstep, you get the picture. It takes some guts to put a Biden bumper sticker on your car. And, almost everyone here is heavily armed. Who wants to be known to be a Biden supporter when there could be a shooting war in December? For that matter, a brick through your window in December could be a really bad thing when it's minus 20 (the really cold weather won't come until January or February).

Much better to keep quiet, vote for Biden, and cross your fingers.

It helps that Dan Sullivan, our so-called senator, and Don Young, our ancient and decrepit representative, are both complete toads, tools of big money outside groups. Neither of them has done a damned thing for Alaska, and both need to go. So I'm hoping that rejection of Sullivan and Young pulls Biden along for the ride.

The point though is that here, and probably in a lot of the country, there's silent support for Biden that the pollsters aren't picking up on."
