Tyrion Lannister beats out several presidential candidates in recent poll

As a few of you may know, there’s this presidential race in progress. Most likely, it’s the craziest race we’ve ever seen, and may ever see. I can’t speak for my American friends, but as a Canadian, I can say that I have absolutely no clue what’s going on any more. And as if it wasn’t already a circus, The Survey Monkey Intelligence blog took a most unusual poll related to the race.

The blog provided nearly 400 Game of Thrones viewers with the names of real-life candidates as well as characters from the popular HBO fantasy show. They asked the viewers who they’d prefer as the the President of the United States of America. You probably know where this is going.

Granted, Bernie Sanders earned the most votes with 24%, but he was tied with none other than Tyrion Lannister. Yes, a man who does not exist earned more votes than Hillary Clinton and the entire Republican field. How did Donald Trump do? He earned an underwhelming 7%, which is ironic considering so many people view his campaign as some kind of fantasy. Daenerys Targaryen couldn’t beat out the Democrats but earned more votes than each of the Republicans.

It wasn’t an entirely hilarious outcome, though. Participants did admit that the United States still has a better system of government than the Seven Kingdoms. I mean…if they said otherwise, America would have a pretty huge problem on their hands.
