Who is voting for Mitt Romney?
Gene Simmons, KIIS says he regrets voting for Obama and will be voting for Romney this time around. Simmons, “Everything depends on the landscape...Americans smartly--and I applaud them for doing so--vote on the issues and not the party. ...In retrospect hindsight is 20/20, I have some real issues with the economy and how it’s being done. ...America should be in business and it should be run by businessmen, that’s my philosophy.”

Kid Rock showed his support for Mitt Romney in a fundraiser this past February. “He'd written down some questions for me,” Romney said before the singer took the stage. “He said first of all, he said, 'Mitt, if you're elected president, will you help me help the state of Michigan?' And I said I would." The next day, Kid Rock emailed him to say he was in. --via New York Daily News
