There are many factors to consider when deciding which presidential candidate deserves your vote. Apparently, for some people, Hogwarts house placement is one of those factors.

According to his husband, Indiana mayor and Democratic presidential candidate Pete Buttigieg was deemed a Hufflepuff after taking the Pottermore sorting quiz. That tracks, but we here at Jezebel want the voters to be as informed as possible, so we decided to sort the other Democratic candidates into their respective houses.

I already suspected as much, but this video confirmed it: I love you Ashley and think we should be friends.

Re: Insley as a Hufflepuff because of his environmental platform, this checks out. Because Professor Sprout was the faculty head of Hufflepuff (and because their common room seemed like it was stashed next to the castle root cellar), I always associated them with earthiness.

We disagree on Gabbard though. She gives me serious Slytherin vibes.
