(david swerdlick, assistant editor, the washington post) "most celebrities, i think people are interested to know what they think, they help with fundraising, but it's not clear to me that people are basing their voting decisions on how celebrities endorse." star power may even help get voters to donate to a candidate. hillary clinton overwhelmingly wins hollywood's vote over donald trump. but trump is not without support from the rich and famous. but all celebrity support may not be created equal. some well-known stars like sean penn, angelina jolie, tom hanks and -- of course -- oprah winfrey -- may have more sway than other personalities. celebrity endorsements are nothing new in politics - historians trace the role of
