Over the past week, the Republican and Democratic National Conventions have been ongoing. This led to the official reveals of Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton as the nominees to become the next President of the United States.

Celebrities of the entertainment industry have come out to support either Trump or Clinton. Given that some of these names are very popular among the voters, it could help swing a few tallies once the election happens in November.
