Fictional Presidential Election 2020: Round 2 — Vote Early and Often!

President Bartlet lights a cigarette in church in The West Wing "Two Cathedrals"

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 for 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).

Round 1 didn’t present many surprises in either conference. I sort of thought Gaius Baltar would make it out of the first round, but he came up short in a close contest with Fitz Grant. And Allison Taylor won a real squeaker against J. Robert Fowler.

Will there be any upsets in Round 2? Who will advance to the next round? You decide! Cast your vote for your favorite fictional President!

Voting in this poll closes Saturday October 10th at 9pm EDT
