Fictional political candidates you'd cast your ballot for are those presidential, congressional, state and local officials who exist only in film and television, but if they were actually running, we might lend them a vote. From the liberal to the ruthlessly evil, for one reason or another, these fictional politicians are among our favorites.

Picking which of these fictional political candidates you'd actually vote for is very much dependent on what you find important in your government leaders. Fans of small government and bacon might vote for Ron Swanson from "Parks and Recreation" while someone more set on marijuana legalization may opt for Doug Wilson from "Weeds." If you want a completely bad ass president, look no further than James Marshall from "Air Force One."

In other cases, picking one of these fictional politicians to elect into office, might just provide the best entertainment money can't buy. Who wouldn't love to have the clueless fictional cartoon version of Adam West in Family Guy as mayor? What about the ridiculous Cam Brady from "The Campaign" or Vanellope von Schweetz from "Wreck-It Ralph?" All might not be best for the job, but watching them in politics sure is entertaining.

So whether you would back President Fitzgerald Grant III in the next election on "Scandal" or you admire the ruthless Francis Underwood in "House of Cards," it's time to pick your fictional political horse to back. Vote up those you'd vote for, add any not listed or re-rank this list of the fictional political candidates you'd cast your ballot for all below!
