In the early and mid 2000s, the show featured a middle-aged black male president (first time ever on a tv show). Incidentally, that president was succeeded by an older white woman with long blond hair. Sound familiar?

Yeah, I doubt a random tv show influenced the election.

On its face, it sounds ridiculous but I do think the idea has some merit. I don't think it influenced many if any people to vote for Obama but it very well could have influenced them away from voting against him. The show was insanely popular and may very well have gotten people comfortable with the idea of a black President. So while I don't think anybody seriously voted for Obama because of 24, it may have contributed to creating a climate in which a black President was not seen as an impossibility anymore.

What about Reagan, who actually was an actor?



Threads like these make me wonder why I frequent this forum.

Obviously I was referring to the notion that Hillary would succeed Obama's presidency, as was the case with the old white woman succeeding the black president on the show.

The show did promote torture against terror suspects, so it may have influenced Americans views on that. It also seemed to promote the Patriot Act.

Obummers thinks the US has 57 states, doesn't surprise me considering he was born in Kenya and raised to be a Muslim who hates freedom and America.

At least the President in 24 was able to git er done and didn't want to take yer gunz
