It’s official, you would vote for Julia Louis-Dreyfus‘ Selina Meyer (“Veep”) if there was a TV presidential election in 2016. And really, Meyer probably would do better for the country than whoever ends up winning the White House in real life, Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton, don’t you think? Scroll down to see how the other TV candidates fared in our recent poll.
In our TV POTUS poll from earlier in the week, Meyer earned a whopping 57% of the vote. That’s more than double than her closest rival Frances Underwood (Kevin Spacey on “House of Cards”), who comes in second place with 26%. Both presidents have their pros and cons, as Meyer is known as a bit of a selfish buffoon and Underwood has a knack for killing his enemies.
Also in our poll, TV’s newest president Tom Kirkman (Kiefer Sutherland on “Designated Survivor”) earned 10%, the adulterous Fitzgerald Grant (Tony Goldwyn on “Scandal”) scored 5%, and the compassionate Conrad Dalton (Keith Carradine on “Madam Secretary”) trailed with 2%. Hmm, does that make this trio TV’s third-party candidates?
