It’s election season, so up and down streets in every city and town you’ll see campaign signs for candidates ranging from city council and state senate to U.S. representative and president. Sometimes, these signs have a picture of the candidate to help connect the voter to the candidate. So, as I was driving down the road in Gilbert, Arizona, a sign among all the campaign signs caught my eye.
When I saw it, I said to myself, why is there a Shrek sign in the mix of all these campaign signs. Upon looking closer, I realized it wasn’t Shrek at all. It was someone sending a mocking message to GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.
Check this out.
Curiously, aside from “This is my swamp” written on the sign, there is no indication who is behind this sign.
Was it done by someone locally who doesn’t support Donald Trump or will these signs pop up in other cities?
Donald Trump won the Republican presidential preference election but Arizona is a state the Democrats are working hard to change to blue. Currently, Hillary Clinton is within two-points of Trump in the state of Arizona according to a recent CBS/YouGov poll. Keep in mind that Mitt Romney won Arizona by almost 10 points in 2012.
While Arizona does have a high Latino population, voters who the Democrats will no doubt target hard to get out the vote, Gilbert itself was founded by Mormons, is very conservative, and has a high Mormon population. That makes the placement of this sign, mocking the GOP nominee, even more curious.
