If the presidency were decided by the people posting signs in and around Phoenix during Super Bowl week, Ron Paul would win in a landslide.
Although John McCain will win the Arizona Republican primary, I’ve seen more signs supporting Paul than I have for McCain, Mitt Romney, Mike Huckabee, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton combined. Many of them are like the one above, combining Paul’s face with the New England Patriots’ logo.
So what does all this mean? Does the Super Bowl attract more libertarians than people of other political persuasions? Does the Paul campaign have a strategy of appealing to football fans? I don’t know. But the signs are everywhere.
