The Since You've Been Gone singer identifies as a Republican, but she voted for Barack Obama in 2012. According to Perez Hilton, Clarkson couldn't bring herself to vote for Mitt Romney because of his apparent anti-gay stance. "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," she said at the time.

When those around her belittle John McCain or Palin, [she] politely reminds them that she's a Republican. 'That's what you have to do in our town,'" she said, according to Reuters.
