If there’s anything we know about Hollywood and politics, its that it leans left – far left. This somehow hasn’t helped dispel the stereotype that Republicans are all wealthy, as apparently rich celebrities are OK while rich business-people aren’t?
That aside, it turns out that tens of thousands of liberals in California accidentally joined a small conservative political party, with Kaley Cuoco, Demi Moore and Emma Stone being among those registered.
As The Blaze reports:
The Los Angeles Times reported Sunday that a telephone survey of 500 members of the American Independent Party found nearly 3 of 4 people did not realize they had enrolled in a political party that opposes abortion rights and same-sex marriage and calls for building a fence along the U.S. border.
The newspaper said voters were confused by the use of the word “independent” in the party’s name. In California, voters who do not want to register with any party must check a box on a registration form for “no party preference.”
Of course, most of those who accidentally joined this party are liberals!
Moore was among Hollywood celebrities with known Democratic leanings listed as members. She has contributed money to and campaigned for President Barack Obama.
Emma Stone — along with boxing legend Sugar Ray Leonard, who also mistakenly registered with the AIP — plan to re-register before the June election, representatives told The Times.
So just how big is this party everyone keeps joining accidentally?
According to the Secretary of State’s Office, the party has about 472,000 members, or 2.7 percent of the statewide total — and is still vastly outnumbered by Democrats (43%), Republicans (28%) and those stating “no party preference” (24%), the Times reported.
I guess we know what we’ll need to do to take back California at least. All we need to do is change our party’s name!
