Presidential Candidates From Fiction: Voting

Vote for your favorite character from fiction, and may the best man…or boy…or hobbit…or non-human win!

A couple weeks ago, my post here explored ten possible candidates from fiction.

I was watching the first presidential debate while my mind wandered around in search of a good topic. I asked myself, “What if we could vote for fictional characters?”

From there, the idea took off. Thanks to a brilliant suggestion on the part of Becky Miller, I have follow-up post. Today it’s time to turn our attention to the serious business of voting for those candidates.

who-will-you-vote-forI loved reading through the comments and seeing which character people would vote for. Here’s your chance to do just that. It’s a fun opportunity to take that post idea and let you, the reader, participate.

Below is a poll with the ten characters listed. Here’s the rundown:

  • Choose one, same as you would in a real election. If you want to add a running mate for the fun of it, comment below.
  • Voting lasts through this coming Sunday, so I have time on Monday to actually write the post (see next).
  • My post next Tuesday will reveal the results, as well as an imaginative look at how the winning candidate would address some of our current issues.

Feel free to share the poll and let people know about this. The more votes, the merrier.

Let the voting commence. May the odds be ever in the favor of your chosen candidate. And may the best man…or boy…or hobbit…or non-human win!

  1. Maybe once the primaries are over, Cap could pick Kenobi as his running mate? I like Kenobi, but Cap has more qualifications, such as being the one who is a natural born citizen.

    • Zac Totah says:

      Good point about Cap’s qualifications. Those along with Kenobi’s general wisdom/mentoring/everything would be a great combination.

      Though I still prefer The Doctor myself. 😉

  2. Just thought I’d mention: the High King Peter answers directly to Aslan. Just sayin’. 😉
