As Election Day nears, an abundance high-profile names and celebrities have come forth to make campaign donations and offer support for their preferred candidates. It's often believed that Hollywood has a liberal bias, and all celebrities will be supporting Barack Obama. This is certainly true of many A-List celebrities, notably including George Clooney, Oprah Winfrey, Julia Roberts, Tom Hanks, and countless others.
It's difficult to measure the benefit such endorsements bring to candidates, and it's possible some questionable endorsements may actually harm a campaign. For every Oprah endorsement, Obama gains nods from the likes of Mike Tyson, Nicki Minaj, and Axl Rose. Obama isn't alone; Romney also has a long list of supporters with questionable influence. What is at issue is whether either candidate will actually receive votes because Mike Tyson and the guy from 'Charles in Charge' support them.
