Who Would You Vote For? Examining TWD vs. FTWD for President


Who Would You Vote For? Examining TWD vs. FTWD for President

With the Presidential race in full swing, I thought it would be fun to pit some of our TWD and FTWD characters against each other as Presidential candidates. We can’t really call them the red and blue candidates since, for the most part, all of them stay covered in red (blood, that is)! For expediency, no deceased character has been added to the nomination list.

Also, there is absolutely no way I would let Negan be on the ballot. His finger would be too close to that red button at all times!! And Jesus isn’t listed because, well, because he’s Jesus and who wouldn’t vote for Jesus!

They are in alphabetical order by first name to show no partiality. Each candidate will be asked a question and he/she will answer with a direct quote from their respective shows.


To the Men of The Walking Dead…


candidate abe

Abraham, there have been rumors of trouble within your campaign. Can you elaborate on that?

Abraham Ford – If I’ve not gotten my psyche situated straight, it’s because the sh*t’s continually been hitting the fan.




candidate darylDaryl, do you have anything you would like to say to our former living Presidents?

Daryl Dixon – You take that stupid hat and go back to “On Golden Pond.”





candidate eugeneEugene, what is your position on foreign policy?

candidate - glennGlenn, is there something you’ve been holding back from the public?

Glenn Rhee – There’s walkers in the barn and Lori’s pregnant!

Rick Grimes – Get one thing straight. You’re staying? This isn’t a democracy anymore.





Now let’s hear from our TWD female candidates.


candidate carolCarol, has there been anyone influential in your campaign?

Carol Peletier – We’re friends with the chick with the sword and the kid in the hat.





candidate maggieMaggie, your thoughts on political mud slinging?

Maggie Green – I’m not rubbing dirt on anything.

Now for our FTWD female candidates.

Alicia Clark – It’s her party and she’ll cry if she wants to.

Madison Clark – If there’s a problem, we’re gonna know about it. The authorities would tell us.




candidate ofeliaOfelia, the last question, what do you think of the other candidates from both TWD and FTWD?

Ofelia Salazar – These are good people.




Are you ready to cast your ballot?  I know I am!  I’m voting for Daryl, not because he’s the most qualified; I just want to LOOK at him!


I'm from a very rural area in SW Mississippi. I'm Mom to one grown son and a little Maltese (see profile picture). I came late to The Walking Dead but instantly fell in love with the series and Daryl. I binge-watched the first four and a half seasons to catch up before it came back on in January, 2015. Now I'm hopelessly hooked. I also watch Fear the Walking Dead and The Talking Dead. I love blogging and interviewing the cast members and cosplayers. I believe everyone deserves recognition for their contribution to the success of TWD and FTWD, no matter how small.
