IIRC the meth cook who gets killed is a Ron Paul supporter, I cannot remember his name.

Gale is the cook Jesse kills, or perhaps you mean Walter White, the main character...

Gale is the name.  When he is first introduced he mentions that he is a libertarian and after he is dead his cookbook is searched and there is a Ron Paul '08 sticker on one of the pages.

What about Back To The Future? Biff Tannan definitely strikes me as a Republican.

Mad Men

There are few characters that have displayed overt political philosophies, and a number of them which I assume may be a political. Given their residence in New York, their vote narrows it down. Went with '64, and pointless not to include primaries--though that does mean there'd be an NY primary, and I don't believe there was. Tongue 1960 would be interesting as well.
Don Draper: Didn't vote. Seems to be a political.
Bertram Cooper: Goldwater - Ayn Rand fan!
Roger Sterling: Rockefeller - When he hears about Rocky's divorce, he's pretty upset that all they have left is Goldwater.
Peter Campbell: Rockefeller - Comes from money. Only clue.
Peggy Olson: Goldwater - Only one clue with this one, where she says in Season 4 that she'd like to have worked for the Goldwater campaign.
Paul Kinsey: Johnson - Got all "New Left" on us in Season 2 and went to register African-American voters in Mississippi with his African-American girlfriend.
Betty Draper/Francis: Rockefeller - Indicated a preference for Nixon in 1960, plus by Season 4 she's seeing someone working for Rockefeller. Best guess here.
Henry Francis: Rockefeller - Duh! Works for Governor Rockefeller and later "the Congressman", John Lindsay running for Mayor.
Stan Rizzo: Johnson - He worked for the Johnson campaign, of course.

I should do 1960... Also, apparently the most recent season goes up to '68, so maybe we'll see that.


Peggy had a JFK picture in her apartment. Pretty sure she was a Democrat, she just said that in regard to business.

Curb Your Enthusiasm: Pretty much everyone for Obama except for Marty Funkhauser who would be a pro-Israel neocon and vote for Romney.

What election is this? Bush didn't run in 2008, and Obama can't run in 2016...

I don't see Andrew Jackson supporting Hillary Clinton. I feel that he would probably support either Ron Paul or Rick Perry in the 2012 Republican primaries and maybe Virgil Goode in the general election.

In the run up to Australia Day, here's Kingswood Country, originally on Australian TV from 1980-84:

Ted Bullpitt - A working class employee at a putty factory, generally Liberal, although would have supported One Nation in 1998 (this being said, Ted was more the type to dislike anyone and anything, rather than an Archie Bunker or Alf Garnett type).  I think Ted would have voted for Katter's Australian Party in 2013, to "bring back the Kingswood".
Thelma Bullpitt - Ted's wife, I'd say a swing voter, probably sneakily (as in not telling Ted) supported Labor in 1972, when Whitlam came into power.
Greta Bertolucci (nee Bullpitt) - Ted & Thelma's daughter, most likely Labor, both at the time and now, given her progressivism.
Craig Bullpitt - Ted & Thelma's son, a medical student, probably Labor at the time, and the Democrats in the Senate. May be a Greens voter now.
Bruno Bertolucci - Greta's husband, Labor , for similar reasons to his wife, and also because of his ethnicity (Italian) and religion (Catholicism).
Bob Bullpitt - Ted's brother, a used car salesman from Brisbane, most likely voted Liberal, This being said, Bob probably voted for the Nationals at the state level in the 1980s, and was probably tempted by Palmer United in 2013.
Merle Bullpitt - Bob's upwardly mobile wife, I'd think she'd be straight-ticket Liberal at both federal and state levels.
