It seems like they don't want to admit voting for the ass.

I think people just fell for the fast-talking used car salesman, drove off the lot, and now feel an ominous vibration from the undercarriage as the radio refuses to tune in the station they like.

I'm seeing way fewer stickers.

The parking lot where I work used to be full of them.  Now I don't see one.  I've never had a bumper sticker but I wonder if they are real easy to remove or if the fanboys are just so angry no bumper sticker was going to survive.

I'm seeing a lot fewer Obama stickers.  Fewer McCain stickers, too.  The election's over, people take them off their cars.

I have seen quite a bit less, I didn't even notice until this poll made me think about it.  Maybe people arre starting to see past the racism of "vote for the black man" and understanding who he really is.

Well at least they are starting to peel off the Kerry-Edwards stickers. I was seeing a fair number of those right up until Edwards got caught with his pants down.

I have seen the same amount.  Still seeing a lot of McCain stickers also.  Actually saw a W '04 sticker the other day.

Same here, although I noticed the Obama sheeple left their stickers and lawn signs long after the McCain and local stuff disappeared.

Funny, I still see W04 stickers on cars here too.

I'm seeing as many as ever(I drive local for a national battery company).  I am *noticing* more McCain stickers, and a LOT more Palin stickers :) than I did before the election, but that probably owes more to chance than anything else.

As a general rule, people don't remove stickers here in Arizona(I think they generally don't care for their cars as well here as in other parts of the country).  I regularly see bumper stickers(generally on neglected turdmobiles, but still) from the 2000 election, and FREQUENTLY see them from the 2004 election.  Kind of a fact of life.  Liberals - and I don't mean to be snarky here, just observing - seem to wear their "Kerry-Edwards '04" stickers as a badge of honor.

My daily driver may be a 24-year-old $800 Celica, but I still can't bring myself to deface any of my automobiles with a bumper sticker, however worthy the libertarian cause may be.

If I take the McCain/Palin sticker off, I'll have to reglue the trim it's holding in place.

I might cut McCain's name off, though.

Don't care

I wanted a bumper sticker that read, "Run, Barrack, Run"

I would have put it on the front bumper of my car.

Down here in Texas (northern DFW suburbs) there weren't a slew of Obama bumper stickers to start with.  I think both sides have been removing them slowly as they get to it.  I'll probably scrape my "Veterans for McCain" off this weekend, in preparation for my "Keep the Change" sticker.

I was traveling the week of the election, and was a bit concerned about my truck being in the DFW paking deck with the McCain sticker on it, but no issues.  I guess even the local Obamites respect others property, around here at least.

Why would you keep the sticker on, after the election?  ???  Especially if the "sticker" is magnetic or static? 

I kept my Bush sticker on for years, but that was just because I didn't want anybody thinking I was a Gore or Kerry supporter.  The horror!
