However, people soon realized that this surface can be used for other purposes as well. Bumper stickers to express political support were introduced in the 1952 presidential election between Dwight D. Eisenhower and Adlai Stevenson II. Now they can be commercial, religious, secular, humorous, or in support of various sports teams and other organizations.
