A gay porn star has told people to vote for Donald Trump – but not for the reasons you think.

Well-known adult film actor Jesse Jackman blogged for Huffington Post about why he’s voting for the billionaire reality TV star-turned-politician.

Mr Trump is currently the frontrunner for the Republican Party nomination  – and despite outrage over his divisive views about minority groups, Jackman wants to help him win out over the other Republicans.

But it isn’t for the reason you would expect.

He explained: “Some committed, lifelong Democrats and Republicans intentionally (if temporarily) switch sides to vote for whoever would prove the weakest opponent against their true party’s nominee in the general election.

“This tactic, known as ‘party raiding’, has the added benefit of eroding support for the weaker candidate’s more viable in-party competition.”

He continued: “Hillary Clinton leads Donald Trump by 2 points in a hypothetical presidential showdown. Conversely, RealClearPolitics shows Clinton trailing Marco Rubio by 3 percent and Ted Cruz by 1.8 percent.

“Should Bernie Sanders become the nominee, the data is similar: Sanders leads Trump and trails Rubio (although he is running slightly ahead of Cruz).

“So for either Democratic candidate, Trump proves to be the most favourable — and desirable — matchup.”

He concluded: “I disagree with Donald Trump ideologically in virtually every respect.

“I believe that his policies and proposals would ruin the strength and integrity of our great nation, undermine the fundamental tenets of our democracy, and make us the laughing stock of the international community (except, perhaps, for Vladimir Putin).

“But no matter what you think of him, one thing’s for certain: Donald Trump is a polarizing figure who is not just divisive across liberal and conservative lines, but within the Republican Party itself.

“Which is exactly why, on March 1, I’m voting for Donald Trump.”
