The presidential primary season may be over and done with, but people are getting in their political fix anyway they can--even if that means byway of fictional political television shows. The CenturyLink team researched the top politically-charged television shows from the past decade and used Google Trends data to determine which state loves which political shows most.
- Predominantly republican states love Scandal.
- Predominantly democrat states love 24 (yes, even still).
- DC is a fan of watching shows based in DC. House of Cards, West Wing, Veep, Commander in Chief, and The Americans all fall in DC's top five list.
- Midwesterners loves political comedies more than political dramas.
- Nevada, home to Sin City, loves crime-focused shows like 24 and The Wire.
Take a look for yourself:

Somehow we weren't too shocked to see that the home region of Southern Belle Mellie Grant has a solid Scandal fan base in southeastern states. Go here for a full report of each state's top five favorite political dramas and comedies.
