A recent presidential poll done on Bravo’s “Watch What Happens Live” found that viewers of the show strongly prefer Donald Trump to Hillary Clinton.
Viewers of “Watch What Happens Live,” hosted by Andy Cohen, were encouraged to text in their presidential choice. The results of the survey found that 65 percent respondents favored Donald Trump and only 35 percent favored Hillary Clinton. The results of the poll shocked Cohen and his program’s guests, Heather Dubrow of “The Real Housewives of Orange County” and Rob Corddry of the HBO series “Ballers.” Cohen was also told by his producers that this poll received more responses than any other poll ever done on “Watch What Happens Live.”
What makes the results of this poll even more surprising is that the demographics of Bravo viewers are far different than the average stereotype of Donald Trump supporters. Most of the viewers of Bravo, which is known for its “Real Housewives” series and other reality TV shows, are women and homosexuals. It’s likely that the old, white men in the crowd at Donald Trump’s rallies wearing “Make America Great Again” hats aren’t sitting at home watching “The Real Housewives of New Jersey.”
While many people will write this poll off because it’s coming from a place like Bravo, the results of this poll shouldn’t be taken lightly. After all, just like other polls, these were the responses of voters. In fact, it should be a concern for Hillary Clinton that an audience likely filled with women and gays prefer Donald Trump over her by a wide margin.
