  • like in many neighborhoods across the US here in Plymouth, Michigan, just outside of Detroit, the name on the lawn signs can change from house to house.

  • And during this election season, the political divisions within the neighborhood have never been more apparent.

  • Retired truck driver John Lohan and his wife, Nancy, say they're voting for four more years of Trump.

  • His accomplishments.

  • Forget about him.

  • A lot of people don't like him like a lot of people hate him.

  • But you look at his accomplishments and the thing he's done.

  • I mean, they're great and he wants to take our country in a godly direction, not in a Communist direction.

  • The prospect of a second trump term is a scary one for Plymouth resident and Biden supporter Alex Morgan.

  • But Morgan, whose neighbor two houses down is voting for Trump, says he sees the benefit in having some political diversity in the neighborhood.

  • Great to have a neighbor's with different political views because, well, hey, I don't know everything.

  • They don't know everything.

  • And if we can perhaps be polite, have like disagreements, that's okay.

  • But not all of the political discourse has been this cordial in the neighborhood Joe Kat said he didn't feel totally comfortable displaying his trump signs.

  • But everybody seems to get along.

  • This is the first, like I say, this first election, where it's gotten a little ugly, you know, when people stealing lawn sign, it's pretty stupid.

  • You know, I just think the lefts just so angry.

  • You know, uh, I've actually been a little bit afraid of putting the sign out in front of my yard.

  • You know, that something was gonna happen.

  • And if I was to go out of town or something, my wife would make me take it down.

  • Uh, just, uh, just stupid things there been happening, you know, The same has happened for Biden.

  • Supporters to Morgan said he decided to fly a Biden flag after two of his Biden signs were stolen from his front yard.

  • But in the end, these residents don't want politics to divide their community.

  • Biden supporter James Cullen says It's not the Michigan way.

  • Even if people have different political opinions, the vast majority of people you know do love their neighbors.

  • I think that they need to find a better expression of how they love their neighbors.
