Though Robert Downey Jr. refuses to make his own political views public, he was happy to share Tony Stark's presidential pick for 2016 in a recent interview with Howard Stern. While promoting Captain America: Civil War, Downey explained:
I believe Tony [Stark], being a budding feminist, he would say it's time to have some feminine energy in the White House.
He confirmed to Stern that "[Tony Stark] does" back Hillary Clinton. It indeed makes total sense that Hillary would earn the backing of a weapons-manufacturing billionaire.
As for his own political preferences, he preferred to keep them more on the hush-hush than Iron Man's, noting:
I'm going to vote. That's what's important.
Downey also said that Steve Rogers, better known as Captain America, would probably be a fan of Ted Cruz:
If you go along with his points of view in the movie, he would back up whoever was for accountability.
After Tuesday, it looks like Stark bet on the better team.
