The Definitive List Of Who Athletes Are Voting For, So You Can Decide If You’ll Hate Them From Now On
Today is Election Day. Not sure if you heard. As such, it’s time to put your God-given rights as an American to good use and cast that ballot of yours. But be forewarned: while you’re standing in line to make your voice heard and help grease the wheels of our finely-tuned Democratic machine, you might just run into a professional athlete or two. (Yes, they vote as well.) Some of your favorite ballplayers are particularly politically-minded, using their brand name and social media muscle to make their favored candidate widely known. And while it may not matter who LeBron James or Peyton Manning are going to vote for in the grand scheme of things -- they're paid to play with balls, not make domestic policy, after all -- we all have to face facts: if you had 6.4 million Twitter followers, or starred in pretty much every other commercial on TV, you'd probably feel self-important enough to talk about things you had no business talking about as well. So, for the sake of keeping track, we’ve rounded up a list of the most important/famous/politically outspoken athletes and their corresponding preference for who should run the free world. In case you’re still undecided* or are looking for more reasons to hate that athlete you probably already hate, here you go. *Note: if you are undecided, don't actually base your vote on any of this. Many of these people have concussions. Also, this thing is today, so make up your damn mind already.
