Recently I saw someone on Twitter ask who each character on The Office would vote for– President Donald Trump or former Vice President Joe Biden. That’s an interesting question and I want a shot at it.
Michael Scott is the most interesting of the bunch. He clearly voted for Barack Obama in 2008 and likely again in 2012, but he’s still a Scranton man and the type of guy who could get swept up in a movement. I think he would be a two time Obama voter and two time Donald Trump voter but Holly Flax could push him into supporting Joe Biden.
I think most people would think Jim Halpert would vote for Biden, but I don’t think so. We know absolutely nothing about Jim’s politics– he appears totally apolitical. But we know he’s a family man, helped start a business, and was raised in Scranton. I think he’d go for Trump.
Pam Beesly, Erin Hannon, Kelly Kapoor, and Gabe Lewis would all absolutely vote for Biden– or, more accurately,– against bad Orange man. Gabe would also put in a lot of effort to dress up his reasons as more intellectual than they really are.
Dwight Schrute would unapologetically vote for Trump.
Robert Califonia was a difficult one. I was close to putting Biden. Yes, he has a business background which suggests Trump but he’s successful enough where he would prefer the stability of Biden over lower taxes and easier regulations. But, his eccentric persona makes me think he would support Trump.
Andy Bernard comes from an economically elite family and went to Yale. He’s voting Biden.
Early seasons Ryan Howard probably votes for Trump because of his business background but the woke hipster Ryan of later seasons goes for Biden.
Phyllis Lapin, Kevin Malone, Meredith Palmer, and Creed Bratton all vote for Trump because of their white working class background. Angela Martin votes for Trump because of her evangelical conservatism.
Oscar Martinez and Tobey Flenderson strike me as moderate liberals that would have supported Pete Buttigeige but switched to Biden later.
Darrly Philbin votes Trump because of his background in the warehouse, status in middle management, and experience in a startup. Stanley Hudson votes Biden because he’s always voted Democrat since the civil rights movement.
