How the Rich and Famous are Voting

This election year has been one of the most interesting, and most controversial election years of my life. The politicians and their supporters are confused, angry, and sometimes downright ignorant. The lies and accusations are tossed around easier than a salad.

This political circus has served to inspire many questions for me, not all of which serve a great purpose - such as this one.

Then again, it wasn't that long ago that a movie star was elected president.




  • How are the rich and famous voting?
I found endless resources for celebrity supporters of Hillary, but those supporting Trump are apparently not as vocal about their choice.

I assume that Clint Eastwood, Chuck Norris and Tom Selleck are Trump supporters, since I know they are staunch Republicans, but I am not sure so I did not include them.
