Top 50 Liberal Bumper Stickers of August 2012: Warren, Romney, Obama, Stein

To cover the costs required to keep Irregular Times going, we sell liberal political bumper stickers, buttons and shirts — over 10,000 different kinds of them.

Some big changes are evident from last month:

  • In July, only 2 bumper stickers about Mitt Romney made the top 50; this month that count is up to 6.
  • A single lawn sign supporting Elizabeth Warren was the Massachusetts Senate candidate’s only appearance in the top 50 last month, and at #23. This month, Warren has two items in the top 50, and they’re at #2 and #6 on the leaderboard, as people begin to get really excited about the prospect of her winning the election.

But some things stay the same: last month, pro-Obama bumper stickers took up 22 of the top 50 spots; this month, Obamamania takes up 22 out of 50 again. Also as in the previous month, 3 pieces of gear supporting the Green Party and its presidential candidate Jill Stein made the top 50 list. 3 out of 50 is nowhere near Barack Obama’s ratio, but for a marginalized third party it’s a much better performance than scanty media mentions would suggest.
