Honey Boo Boo is one redneck who is supporting Barack Obama.
Jimmy Kimmel asked the young reality star who she would be voting for, if she could vote, and she said it would be Obama.
In a late night appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”, the talk show host asked her if she knows who Mitt Romney was. She replied, “no.” Kimmel then told the “Toddlers and Tiaras” standout that Romney revealed on he preferrred Snooki over Honey Boo Boo, so Boo Boo picked Obama when asked to pick between the President and his GOP contender.
Earlier this year; Honey Boo Boo (whose real name is Alana) showed her support for the LGBT community on her spin-off show, “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” by saying, “Everbody is a little bit gay.”
“Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” returns to TLC in January.
While stumping for votes in Ohio, Barack Obama stumbled on his words when pledged to “export more jobs”. However, the president was quick on the retraction as he joked that he was “channeling his opponent”.
Recent polls show that President Obama is now widening his lead over his Republican counterpart, Mitt Romney, in Ohio and other crucial “swing states” as the candidates enter their last 30 days of campaigning before voters head to the polls in early November.
Political analysts say that if Obama wins at least two of those states that could go either way, then Romney stands no chance of winning enough electoral votes to take the White House away from the Democrats. The latest Gallup tracking and Bloomberg polls results released this week shows that Obama is leading over Romney by 6 points nationwide. In addition to a commanding lead in Ohio, the President is also leading in the battle ground state of Florida.
