Why Lindsay Lohan’s Endorsement of Romney is More Important Than You Think



Interesting article from Business Insider on why Lindsey Lohan's endorsement of Mitt Romney is more important than we think.

quote:

Lindsay Lohan came out in support of Mitt Romney yesterday.

While most would, at first glance, write this off as gossip, it's the latest instance of an evolving trend that jeopardizes President Obama's chance at winning the White House.

Lohan, by all accounts, is a typical low-information voter. And low information voters, like it or not, will decide this election.

The first person to pick out this trend was Dave Weigel at Slate after sportswriter Buzz Bissinger endorsed Romney after his positive debate performance. Bissinger, Weigel notes, was a low information voter. He ignored the election, watched the debate, took everyone's word for it on the facts, and backed Romney. As Weigel notes, it's not like either side was falling over themselves to score the lusted-after and enviable Bissinger endorsement.

But Bissinger is emblematic of millions of Americans. These people don't follow politics, don't understand the issues with depth, and plan to vote based on what little information they've gleaned.

Adult film actress Jenna Jameson has backed Romney because "when you're rich, you want a Republican in office." Wrestler Hulk Hogan has backed Romney because he wants someone to "just take the lead and run."

Lohan said that the reason she was voting Romney was "employment." From The Blaze: “I just think employment is really important right now,” the troubled star told E!, while at Mr. Pink’s Ginseng Drink event in Beverly Hills, California, on Thursday. “So, as of now, Mitt Romney. As of now.”

Here's why the Obama campaign should be worried. Lohan is a low information voter convinced that (a) employment is really important, (b) thinks that employment is not being sufficiently handled by the White House right now and (c) thinks that Mitt Romney is better equipped to handle employment.

That arguably logical sequence is all that it takes for a low-information voter to support Mitt Romney. The thing is, there are millions of voters like her. That should terrify the Obama campaign.

In fairness, those same "low informed" voters put Obama into office.

That's kind of the point of the article. The tide is turning among low informed voters.

That was not low informed it was nothing but a group of peolple voting on skin color lines as they were black, and those that voted on the racial guilt line.

From what we know of Ms. Lohan, as soon as someone in her Hollywood crowd tells her that what she said is "not cool", she will be appearing in a pro-Obama ad to regain what little "cred" she has with the Glitter Mob.

This is a dumb article. On Nov. 6th there will only be one political party sweeping the ghetto, and loading school buses with low information voters. If these voters do not go to the polls, the dems would lose by double digits in damn near every national and state election.

I guess I'm low-information, too.

Are you predicting she will do this before November or will you claim no one in the Hollywood crowd is talking to her if she does not retract?

Y'all constantly whine and cry about celebrities expressing their views but as soon as one of them comes out for Romney you think it's the best thing since sliced bread.

I think you are missing the point or the article and the comments here. I doubt anyone really cares about the politcal thought of Ms lohan, the fact she bothered to make a statement and generated an opinion is what is interesting.

Did you bother to read the link?

I don't see anybody here saying she should shut up and stick to acting.

Can you imagine the vitriol that would have been said about her here had she made pro-Obama statements? At least be consistent, that's all I ask.

I'll try again, man bites dog is news, dog biting man is not news.

It is not inconsistent for the author of the Link in the OP to have a take on low informed hollywood stars coming out for Romney and finding them for Obama being less noteworthy.

Are you learning impaired? I'm serious. you must be learning impaired. Either that or you didn't read the article, but you decided to opine anyway.

Please, read the article or move along.

She should shut up. I don't even think she should act.

Still, this is an ill portent for Obama.

That's right. And, that's why those principled partisans on both sides should be po'ed that these capricious doofuses will decide the election.
