Who Will Walter White, Dexter, and Daryl Dixon Vote For?

Walter White

By now, you’ve likely heard just about every single person you know (and don’t know — damn the limitless world of social media!) proclaim their opinions about the presidential election. Your friends, your family, your favorite celebrities — they’ve all made themselves very clear about who they want to be the nation’s next Commander-in-Chief. But despite the progressive efforts to extend this sort of avenue for free speech to everyone in the country, there is one demographic whose voice remains unheard: fictional characters. Tragically, there is no platform for the likes of your beloved television companions to express their views on politics and key issues.

As such, we can’t claim to know what the likes of our favorite TV characters would say regarding the 2012 election. We don’t know if, say, Walter White would vie for Mitt Romney. If Dexter Morgan would opt to reelect Barack Obama. If Abed Nadir would write in Harrison Ford. That’s not up to us to decide. But it is up to you. After all, this is a democracy.

It’s important to figure out your small screen friends’ political alignments. After all, if you’re going to let anyone influence you on which candidate to choose, it might as well be someone who’s been at least considered for an Emmy. And so, below is a list of some of the best men and women currently residing within the district of your DVR, complete with a brief summary of the values they might be considering upon casting their ballots this year. Look through, and let us know who you think they’d be voting for to lead the nation through 2016.
