Brian said that he voted for McCain in one episode.

I imagine hyphenation, for both spouses, as a sort of custom would very quickly make us all sound like a bunch of bizarrely named English aristocrats. If Peter Flynn marries Beatrice Mendez and has a kid named Anthony, who in turn marries Alice Glazowski-Chanut, their kid would be named Colin Mendez-Flynn-Glazowski-Chanut, who would then marry Beth Harper-Zhang-Rothman-Wald, and their kid would be named...

Lisa:

1960 - Kennedy
1964 - Johnson
1968 - Write-in: Eugene McCarthy
1972 - McGovern
1976 - Carter
1980 - Carter
1984 - Mondale
1988 - Dukakis
1992 - Clinton
1996 - Clinton (not a fan of his more conservative policies but he's still a fellow saxophone player)
2000 - Nader
2004 - Kerry
2008 - Obama
2012 - Stein

She bought one of Al Gore's books so I think it's likely she would have voted for him.

You got it right though on Mondale, Dukakis and Kerry.

"Don't listen to that ol' Grumpy Gus, sweetheart," Biden said, making his way over to the ranger. "Uncle Joe's gotcher back!" The vice president proceeded to give the woman a hug that lasted slightly too long and pressed slightly too hard against her boobs.

For Archie Comics

Archie-Independent; if he can't choose between Betty and Veronica I don't see him being able to choose in politics either
Veronica-Republican, in the original comics her father's name was Burton K. Lodge in reference to the Republican Senators of those names and was a Massachusetts senator. Definitely would be an Establishment/country-club Republican now.
Betty-Democratic, probably would be a progressive and a feminist.
Reggie-Republican
Jughead-Libertarian, in RL I can easily see him being a pothead, video game addict, and a MRA (considering his dislike of women)
Dilton-Democratic
Moose-Republican
Midge-Independent
Chuck/Nancy-Democratic
Cheryl-Republican
Mr. Weatherbee-Republican
Ms. Grundy-Democratic

I guess there's little point in doing The West Wing or House of Cards. Tongue

Harry Potter:

(Note: For the sake of simplicity, the parties referred to are the Muggle parties' wizarding equivalents).

Harry: Liberal Democrat
Weasleys: Blue-collar Labourites
Hermione: Labour
Malfoys: Upper-class Tories
Voldemort: BNP
Dumbledore: Liberal when they were still strong, eventually switched to Labour
Luna Lovegood: Monster Raving Loony
Blacks (excluding Sirius): Thatcherite Tories, think Enoch Powell was pretty cool

Will add more as I think of them...

TF2 Characters:

The American classes:

Scout - Assuming he isn't apolitical, I can see him as being a Rockefeller Republican. His mother is a rather conservative-looking housewife, and knowing how big of a Momma's boy Scout is, he most likely lets his mother influence his political views. He MIGHT have voted for Humphrey in 1968, but chances are he voted for Nixon instead. If he bothered to vote in a primary, it would be for Rockefeller. Unless he becomes more liberal or less dependent on his mother by the time of Mann vs Machine, he most likely voted for Nixon again in 1972.

Engineer - The Engineer is your average blue collar southern man. Well, apart from having 11 PhDs. He is very likely to be a conservative Blue Dog Democrat. Since he appears to be rather racially tolerant, it is unlikely would support Wallace in 1968. As such, I think he would vote for Humphrey in 1968 but definitely would vote for Nixon rather than McGovern in 1972.

Soldier - I am not even sure he can read. If he can, he probably doesn't leave his apartment to vote. He is too stupid and insane to participate in regular politics.

The European Classes:

The Heavy: The Heavy is far more intelligent than he appears in the game, but remember that the Soviet Union is a one-party dictatorship, so no meaningful elections take place there. The Heavy's father was a counter-revolutionary, so it is likely Heavy and the surviving members of his family are the same. That could mean they are Tzarists, Mensheviks, Liberals, or even the wrong kind of Marxist, but he is definitely not in favor of the current Soviet regime.

The Medic:  Valve has confirmed he is not a Nazi, so that possibility is threatened out. I'd say Medic's political views depend on his religious views. He hails from a small rural Bavarian town named Rottenburg, so it is very likely he might be a conservative Catholic. If that is the case, he might be one of the remnants of the Zentrum Partei or part of the CDU. If he is Jewish or Atheist, he is more likely to be a member of the SPD. Again, I believe the Medic's religious views would be largely determined by his religion.

The Demoman: Demoman is always drunk in-game, but he is sometimes sober in the comics, but even then it's rare. I am not sure that he really cares about politics. In one of his Domination lines, he does insult the Heavy by calling him a "bloody Bolshevik," so there is that.

The Spy: I think the Spy - *backstabbed*

Unknown:

The Pyro: We'll never know. He/she/it would probably burn the ballot booth.
