Cast Your Vote for Fictional President! (Eastern Conference)

Jed Bartlet standing in the Oval Office

The 2020 election is fast approaching, but that’s no fun to think about!

Instead let’s vote for our favorite Presidents from film and TV in a bracket style showdown that will last weeks! A lot of us probably wish we could cast a ballot for one of these fictional characters in November, but we’re not going to presume you want the person to actually lead the country (spoiler alert: they won’t anyway).

So who is your favorite fictional President? We start with 32 possibilities (compiled scientifically by the method of 25YL staff picking them) split into two brackets, representing the Eastern and Western Conferences. There is no logic to who is in which either, but I do think it sort of feels right.

Voting in this poll closes Saturday October 3rd at 9pm EDT (Western Conference Round 1 also available)
