The Greatest Fictional President Elite Eight


What a first round of voting! A lot of heavy hitters were eliminated and some favorites are emerging. Here are the results of the Sweet Sixteen Round of the Greatest Fictional President bracket. 



Benjamin Asher (Olympus Has Fallen) vs Michael Wilson (Metal Wolf Chaos)
Jed Bartlet (The West Wing) vs Thomas Whitmore (Independence Day)
Tom Beck (Deep Impact) vs Francis Underwood (House of Cards)
Lord Business (The Lego Movie) vs James Sawyer (White House Down)
Dwayne Elizondo Mountain Dew Herbert Camacho (Idiocracy) vs David Palmer (24)
Matthew Ellis (Iron Man 3) vs Nixon's Head (Futurama)
Mays Gilliam (Head of State) vs Selena Meyer (Veep)
Lex Luthor (DC Comics) vs James Marshall (Air Force One)

So, a couple of big surprises there. Who knew that many of the more fun and exciting Presidents would lose to the more calm and dignified statesmen? The Camacho/Palmer match-up was particularly unexpected. Bartlet also won his contentious first battle against Whitmore which was a very hard choice for a lot of voters. Most shockingly, only two of the giant robot Presidents made it through to the second round. It will be interesting to see if they are able to move forward or if they too get stomped out by the even-tempered politicians.

Here are the match-ups for the next round.


Benjamin Asher (Olympus Has Fallen) vs James Marshall (Air Force One)
Jed Bartlet (The West Wing) vs Selena Meyer (Veep)
Francis Underwood (House of Cards) vs Nixon's Head (Futurama)
Lord Business (The Lego Movie) vs David Palmer (24)
