On campus, I’ve been surrounded by a largely liberal (LIBERAL arts college, anyone?), largely young demographic. While that’s all fine and dandy, it’s not representative of the general American population. With this in mind, coming home from school can cause some culture shock.
I drove by this same sign in suburban Pennsylvania. It’s real.

Now, first off: DONALD TRUMP SUPPORTERS ARE REAL. Gone are the jokes made without thinking, the confusion as to how such a person could ever lead a presidential election. I’ve gotten into legitimate arguments with someone who insists the man would make a wonderful president and has reasons to back up this “logic.” I honestly haven’t seen a single Bernie sign in a single yard since visiting my parents. I’ve seen dozens of Trump signs.
This isn’t to claim that everyone at Gettysburg College supports Bernie. The school even specified that the Town Hall Meeting earlier this spring was NOT a rally. But I’d safely say that the vast, or at least the most vocal majority feels the Bern.

The Observer wrote in March that Bernie has one won the Internet this election, whatever the final results; consequently, he’s won over the Internet generation. In the *real world*, however, the Internet is proving to be less influential than ever.
I just hope America thinks to look behind the curtain.
