Informal Brooklyn Poll: Daddy Yankee endorses McCain, say what?


Last week Daddy Yankee announced his endorsement of John McCain for president, sending political reporters and bloggers into a flurry of cracks about the real meaning of the lyrics in "Gasolina." New Yorkers can probably remember "Gasolina" as the reggaeton hit that dominated the streets in the summer of 2005, skyrocketing the Puerto Rican rapper into international stardom.
So what do the residents of Southside Williamsburg think of Yankee's endorsement? The responses I got on Sunday were an interesting mix of apathy, Obama support and general good humor about the absurdity of it all.

Jonathan Luis de Jesus, age 23

Q: Why do you think Daddy Yankee would have supported McCain?

A: They got money, musicians. So they vote for Republicans.

Q: Could a musician influence your vote for president?

A: No. Maybe some people, but I don't think so.

Q: So you're going to vote for Obama?

A: Nah. I'm not going to vote.

John Davila, age 42

Q: Why do you think Daddy Yankee endorsed McCain?

A: He's trying to get the young vote. Myself, I'm a Democrat.

[At this point John was interrupted by his friend, a younger guy, who was shaking his head and muttered something about "those people."]

Listen, It's all about Obama. You gotta respect what the man stands for.

Stephanie, age 18

Q: What do you think of Daddy Yankee endorsing McCain?

A: It's weird.

Q: Do you think Yankee's endorsement will influence the people in this neighborhood, or other Puerto Ricans?

A: No. A lot of the kids around here don't want to vote. Nobody wants to vote for McCain, though. More people will vote for Obama. Besides, it [Yankee's endorsement] is not that much of a big deal. I haven't even heard about it. So maybe if it's on TV and gets bigger, then people might be influenced.

Q: What about you? Are you going to vote?

A: Yea. I just registered two weeks ago. [smiles]

Celo, age 25

Q: What do you think of Daddy Yankee's endorsement of McCain?

A: It's bullshit. That old white dude is not going to do anything for us. That's the last thing we need.

Q: Why do you think Yankee did it?

A: I have no idea. It's like: for real?

Q: Do you think it will influence people's votes?

A: No. People won't vote anyway. And Obama is the shit.
