In the midst of all the tension between Donald Trump and Hilary Clinton is another heated debate as to who will have dominion over the land of Westeros. The Game of Thrones universe interacts with our own world, as it also has its own candidates debating over the question, "Who should rule Westeros?"
As of now, Jon Snow is one of the favorite picks, but the people are free to take on whoever they wanted as they can have a combination of leaders to put into the office of Westeros.
The candidates for the ultimate ruler and the right hand respectively are: Jon Snow and Lyanna Mormont, Cersei Lannister and Qyburn, Petyr Baelish and Sansa Stark, and Daenerys Targaryen and Tyrion Lannister.
Throughout the remainder of August, the fans of the fantasy medieval TV series can cast their votes on the official website. The results of the elections will be released on September 1.
Up until now, there are over 1.5 million votes cast on the official site, putting Daenerys Targaryen, Littlefinger, and Jon Snow as the leading candidates for being the dominant ruler of Westeros. Littlefinger leads the race surprisingly with 34 percent of total votes.
On the other hand, the next two potential rulers are just one percent behind one another, as Jon Snow has 33 percent of votes, and Daenerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons garners 32 percent of total votes.
It truly is a huge and successful gimmick for the producers of Game of Thrones to create this gimmick propaganda as it markets the hit TV series franchise in a wider scope while matching up with the current trend of today which is the U.S. presidential elections.
Fans need to patiently wait for September 1 to know once and for all who will rule Westeros. Well, this is only for the survey.
