Election 2012: Celebrities Who Support Barack Obama (GALLERY)

35In these cool fall temperatures, it seems Hollywood has caught campaign fever.

With the 2012 presidential election just around the corner, the stars are gearing up to place their votes.

But who is rooting for the incumbent President Barack Obama this time around?

If observers have learned anything over the past few weeks, it’s that celebs aren’t shy to express their political leanings. In fact, they wear them right on their sleeves -- or their backs, in Madonna's case.

Many stars have staunchly advocated for Obama’s reelection, using their celebrity status to influence the public. And they just love to speak their political minds. From pro-Bama video messages to self-led Twitter campaigns, everyone has their own to way of endorsing their favorite candidate.

Even the less-outspoken celebs show their support by hosting mere $40,000 per-plate fundraisers, or making generous contributions to their party of choice.

But it will all come down to who can bring in the most support by Election Day, on Nov. 6.

Do celebrities help influence your vote? Sound off in the comments below.

Check out the gallery for a look at the famous faces of Team Obama.

    Jay-Z told MTV, "I support Barack because I gotta respect that sort of vision. I gotta respect a man who is the first black President ever. To have that sort of vision and dream, I have to support that.” wait what???? what are you supporting??

    Yeah, sure, sarcasm. I bet she thinks that is sort of a country or something. Seriously, she just wants attention. She read somewhere that Romney was the first in polls, she made a song. Now if Obama is the first, she is like, oh, I was being sarcastic. No, go away Nicki Minaj!

    Oh, so now I know why he called her best Catwoman ever. Probably if Jack Nicholson was an Obama-fan, he would have said he is the best Joker too.

    most celebs should keep their noses out of politics and stick to their day jobs. Obama is about as bad as Jimmy Carter was
