Political field report from the wilds of Maryland

The Queen Of The World and I went to the Frederick (MD) County Fair last night.  We both love the county fairs, and this one was only 15 minutes from Castle Borepatch.  While wandering among the booths on the midway, we ran across the Democratic Party booth.  It was heavily staffed, but nobody was stopping by - the crowd completely ignored it.

Then we saw someone walking by with a Trump For President yard sign.  The Queen Of The World wanted one to display over the moat, and so we went in search of the Republican booth.  It was harder to find but had a regular traffic of people coming in and paying $2 for the yard signs*.  I asked one of the guys working the booth how busy they had been and he said that they were swamped, and had sold literally hundreds of signs that day.

In deep blue Maryland.

I don't think that people realize just how this election is shaping up.

Yeah, but greater Boston will override any semi (for Maryland) rural areas.

The state will still go Blue.

Hehehe, stealth voters...

Keep thinking that, right up to when the democrat election fraud kicks in. They have voters and pre-filled ballot boxes you haven't even dreamed of.

I wouldn't be so sure about Boston or MA in general..... There are NO Hillary signs or bumper stickers anywhere here. Just faded Obama and Warren stickers ( and those cars are curiously devoid of Hillary stickers ) but I do see a number of brave citizens with Trump Signs and Trump Bumper stickers. more and more everyday.......

But then, maybe that's because we are the only ones up that early going to work.......

Borepatch - You live here in Frederick Co? I didn't know you were so close. I'm in Brunswick. My wife is friends with Mike Hough's wife. Might be fun to meet sometime, so I can buy you a beer for all the entertainment you've provided here over the years.

I have no doubt that NY state is going to go to Hillary. But if upstate was its own state it'd totally end up for Trump. The number of Trump signs and flags is huge around here.

Chuck, I've been thinking it would be fun to have a get together.

Maryland is only blue around the beltways Fredrick is solid red country

Well not so solid here unfortunately. Lots of folks moving up from Montgomery and out from B'more are skewing the lines a bit. And of course gerrymandering the election districts did ensure dems in those seats. But it is probably half and half. And I do see more Trump signs than Hillary ones, except in downtown Frederick City.

I echo what Minecraft Chuck said. I am just down 340 from you in Winchester. Let me know when you are going to have the beer: I want to join the fun.
