Ah, the power of pop star endorsements! In the same way that Britney fans would subliminally choose a Pepsi over a Coke, Demi Lovato fans might swing toward choosing Hilary Clinton over Bernie Sanders in the upcoming Presidential election. At least, that’s Hil’s goal, right?
Hilary Clinton, harnessing the power of fandom, teamed up with Lovato for Thursday’s rally at the University of Iowa. Lovato performed her song “Yes” for 1,600 supporters, and said some nice things about Clinton.

Of course, I give fans a lot more credit, and you won’t hear me saying “She loves Demi, so, by logic, she’ll vote for Hilary.” I know that people can come to their own conclusions and make informed decisions about their vote. But there is some influence in celeb endorsements: One 18-year-old told The New York Times yesterday that he was planning on voting for Donald Trump… until he heard that Lovato was opening for Clinton. “Demi is cool. She’s got my vote,” he said.
Does Demi’s cameo have a direct correlation with her fans’ votes? Let’s see what they’re saying:
A lot of people were saying that Clinton’s rally was filled with Demi fans, regardless of whether they liked Clinton or not.
I'm gonna be bold here and say that most of the people in the IMU tonight were there for Demi, not Hilary.

I guess it's cool that I'll be seeing former first lady and presidential candidate Hilary Clinton tonight but the best part is Demi Lovato

Do your own thing!
What does Demi supporting Hilary have to do with any of y'all. You vote for who you want to vote for (if you're an American)

At least it’s not Trump…
I hate the fact that Demi is voting for Hilary…but hey, at least it ain't trump.

Urban legend says that Demi’s twin is still living in a basement, so this person will be voting for Bernie.
So, that’s settled.
