If you watch porn, it’s likely that your favorite porn star is going to vote for Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.).

In a survey conducted by the Daily Beast, more than 15 of the most-watched porn stars endorse the self-identifying Democratic Socialist. The publication reached out to 30 famous porn stars in total. While big names like Alana Evans and Sydney Leathers “feel the Bern,” so to speak, Tasha Reign backs Sen.Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).

Tasha Reign, whose legal name is Rachel Swimmer, said she endorses Warren for president because she wants to see a woman in office. Also, Warren has recently backed the SAFE Sex Workers Study Act.

“She has a vagina. I want a fucking woman president. How archaic is America that we’ve never had a woman president? It’s beyond upsetting to me. I also like what Elizabeth stands for. She’s pro-sex-workers’ rights. That’s all I need to know,” Reign told the Daily Beast.

Reign retweeted a tweet that exemplifies her position on sex worker’s rights.

“If you hear someone saying cruel things about sex workers, do the right thing. Defend & humanize us. Everyone has the power to change a mind with the right language,” @VioletDoll tweeted.

Meanwhile, Sanders has also been an advocate for sex workers. He’s the co-author of the SAFE Act which Warren recently backed. In addition, several porn stars are behind Sanders for his strong stance on Medicare-for-all.

One of them is adult actress Sydney Leathers. She says she’s tired of people discrediting her opinions because of her line of work.

“I love when strange men online try to tell me I shouldn’t have opinions because I’ve done porn. Sir, I’m able to be a cum dumpster and have opinions, just like your mother,” she once tweeted.

Leathers has joined the vast majority of Twitter that has memed the 2020 primaries. She posted a meme of several candidates with different grade vibrators. Sanders at the top with a Hitachi Magic Wand. Former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg was at the bottom with a clothing hanger.

“I’m supporting Bernie because healthcare is my biggest issue as a voter and he’s the person with the best plan,” Leathers told the Daily Beast. “I also believe he has the most motivated base, and the best chance of beating Trump.”

Alana Evans is also behind Sanders for similar reasons. As the President of the Adult Performers Actors Guild, Evans has advocated for sex workers like herself.

She’s behind the petition to stop a California bill that would require all sex adult performers to be licensed and trained. In addition, the bill requires workers to complete fingerprints for criminal records checks.

The porn stars are joining a multitude of celebrities that have publicly thrown support behind Sanders. Comedian Joe Rogan, singers Ariana Grande and Cardi B are just a few.
