A reader sent along a photo from the gift shop at Baltimore-Washington International airport. His slightly edited descriptive email follows.
I traveled through BWI in late January, and the gift shop was literally wall to wall Obama Inauguration T-shirts and the like. Which makes sense since lots of enthusiatic people came to DC and BWI is a gateway airport.
I traveled through BWI last week and was struck by the window display in the same gift shop. (see pic attached). Half the stand was Obama gear, and I had a picture of that too, which also has a closeup of my thumb. D'oh!. But we also see Nope Keep the Change and Don't Blame me I voted for McCain - Palin. (And I while the Don't blame me I voted for .... is a hardy perennial, I have never seen the undercard so promoted like this.)
Storekeepers follow the money, and at the very least don't want to scare away bidness. So I found this interesting. Not dispositive, but interesting.
Me, too. Are the forces of Hopeless on the rise?
Rasmussen's daily poll says the tide may indeed be turning. The president is still popular with his true believers, but the independents seem to be sliding away.
