Celebrities - Democrats or Republicans?

27 of 42: Kelly Clarkson said on Dec. 28, 2011 that she supports Republican presidential candidate Ron Paul.

Clarkson's declaration angered some of her fans, who responded to the singer's Twitter account with claims that Ron Paul made racist and homophobic remarks in the past. Many of the Tweets referred to a newsletter Paul allegedly wrote over a decade ago. He has denied making such comments.

In late October 2012, ABC News quoted Clarkson as telling the UK tabloid The Daily Star: 'I've been reading online about the debates and I'm probably going to vote for Obama again, even though I'm a Republican at heart I can't support Romney's policies as I have a lot of gay friends and I don't think it's fair they can't get married ... I'm not a hardcore feminist but we can't be going back to the '50s.'
