Literally every character in The Americans.

If that's cheating, I was going to say Red Forman, considering his stance on snowflakes and wanting to make America great again but I just don't think he'd have the patience for Trump. Or modern politics at all for that matter. Less grabbing people by the pussy, more putting foots in their assholes. But that line of thinking trickled down to his son. Now obviously his friendship with Fez is going to make Eric think twice given that his friends are literally all he has going for him (I mean assuming Trump is running in the 70s, I'm sure Eric has goals and accomplishments now that he's pushing 60) but he does have that mentality that things should just be handed to him and has been known to throw a tantrum when things don't go his way.

Regardless Kelso definitely would, considering he is the kind of guy that would vote for someone who reminds him of himself and they share the same realm of intelligence and coherent thought. Speaking of Kelsos, Bob from Scrubs would be in the 'people in charge should do whatever they want regardless of the lives affected' voting mindset, The Todd would have doubled down after hearing about the harassment and the Janitor just wants to watch the world burn.

Wait, has Trump come down hard against drugs? Because if so, ignore this entire post past the first sentence.

Oh, Sheriff Hopper would have to be sick of invaders coming from down below by now and has contributed to closing the gate twice, which is the equivalent of building a wall in non-fantasy worlds, right? No, I guess that would just be closing an actual gate. Shut up.

Ron Swanson's brand of libertarianism, I think, makes him unlikely to support Trump. Trump is the opposite of a libertarian, and though a distressing number "libertarians" did support Trump, they tended to be Tea Party types, which Ron Swanson really isn't, and to reliably vote Republican. I always read Ron Swanson as a capital-L, Libertarian who reliably votes for Libertarian Party candidates and writes stuff in when there's none available. And I don't read Andy as political at all.

Of all the Parks and Rec employees, I feel like Donna and Jerry are the most likely Trump supporters, though I have an easier time imagining both as apolitical. That said, I can imagine all the Parks and Rec employees bullying Jerry for voting Trump, someone calls Donna out on supporting Trump too, and she has some excuse about why it's different for her.

While Ron Swanson is a staunch libertarian, he also likes ineffectual people in government. I can see him voting for Trump out of the hope he'll lead the government to crash and burn. Andy may not be political at all, but being around so many political types, he may feel/be pressured to vote anyway. Trump may have reached him better than Hillary, but IDK if April would have steered him to Hillary or trolled the US by voting Trump with him.
Your points on Donna and Jerry are completely valid and I'm a little mad that I didn't think of them!

Michael Scott doesn't seem like the political type, but Angela is 100% a Trump supporter and same for most of the white warehouse crew. Phyllis is a plausible Trump supporter, as an old white woman. Jim and Pam, TBH, seem like Trump supporters too, especially Jim, given how much of a bully he is. Dwight, I feel like, is someone who doesn't vote because voting is how they track you, but I can imagine him defending Trump once he's in office.


I only nominated Michael, because he would probably see Trump as a brilliant businessman, but he may have weird ideas about voting so who knows.

JamishT was a heck of a guy,
With a devilish twinkle in his eye.
With his hand-picked flowers,
And his feel-good powers,
He made all the girls blush and sigh.

After Windy's J. Jonah Jameson clipping from the comics,which I'm not as familiar with as the movies and some of the animated shows, I'll have to refine my answer to that J. Jonah Jameson would be a Trump supporter depending on which universe. The movies and the most recent video game make him seem like an Alex Jones stand-in.

I've seen some people suggest the Bundy family from Married with Children, but they're another TV family I think doesn't vote, except for Bud, who'd suddenly find politics interesting because some hippy chick found him interesting in college and started having sex with him. The Darcy's would be Trumpers though cause tax cuts for their income bracket.

Ok, original thought here: Mr. Wilson from Dennis the Menace.

There was one episode of Married with Children that dealt with elections, "The Chicago Wine Party". The Bundys were indeed shown as apathetic about politics, but went to vote that time, because a beer tax was proposed.

I think Marcy would be a Hillary supporter, because she was portrayed as a caricature of a feminist liberal. In the same episode, she says: "This is the year of the woman. [the episode aired in 1992] Everyone I know is going to vote for a woman regardless of her qualifications or her stance on the issues."

Fez would be the Trump supporter. I'm pretty sure of that.

Red might vote for Trump, but then stop supporting him out of frustration with Korea. Erick will have joined his dad, because he trusted his instincts that time. Kitty will probably have never voted Trump in the first place, and will be hiding that from Red. Jackie and her family might support Gary Johnson, Hillary Clinton, or Trump. Cast a die, figure it out. But wherever it lands, even though Kelso would probably vote for Trump for himself, its in Jackie's hands. Donna and her family will never vote Trump. Just Go full "Hill-dawg".

Hyde... Wouldn't vote.
