The UNH Survey Center’s most recent Granite State Poll reports that 60% of Trump supporters in New Hampshire do not want to put a bumper sticker on their car or a sign in their front yard because they’re afraid of vandalism. I wish I’d seen this stat a couple of days ago when I was writing this piece for National Review:
“You have been identified by our group as being a Trump supporter.” Thus begins the text of threatening letters recently sent to homeowners with Trump yard signs in New Hampshire. The letters continue, “We recommend that you check your home insurance policy and make [sure] that it is current and that it has adequate coverage for fire damage. You have been given ‘Fair Warning.’”
The menacing notes are just the latest example of the threats, theft, and electoral shenanigans surrounding the final days of campaign season in New Hampshire, whose elite primary status typically makes it a hub of bare-knuckle politics early in the season — but not as much in the fall, despite its battleground stripes.
