Top pornstars in the US have thrown their support behind Bernie Sanders ahead of the 2020 presidential elections in November.

The adult film stars believe the Vermont senator's views on healthcare and education make him the best Democratic candidate for president.

The Daily Beast got in touch with at least 30 of the biggest names in the adult entertainment industry to learn who they wanted to take on Republican juggernaut President Donald Trump.

The paper found that more than half of them preferred the 78-year-old Democratic socialist leader, and that only one of them supported Trump.

“I am a Bernie Sanders supporter. I voted for him against Hillary and, when given the opportunity, I will vote for him again,” said Alana Evans, president of the Adult Performers Actors Guild.

"Bloomberg is a Trump in sheep’s clothing, and it would end up being eight more years of the same crap we’ve already had," she continued. "Elizabeth Warren, at one point, had created a bill that would’ve potentially taken away the bank accounts of sex workers across the country, under the guise of preventing sex trafficking."

Evans grabbed headlines in 2018 after claiming to have had a rather strange encounter with Trump, who could be standing opposite Sanders on the debate stage if the latter manages to win the Democratic nomination.

Evans was among a bevy of pornstars who attended the annual American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in Lake Tahoe in 2006. Stormy Daniels was also present at the event.

Speaking to the Daily Beast, Evans alleged that she rejected an invitation by Daniels to join her and then-reality TV star Trump for "a party" in his hotel room.

She went on to claim that Daniels and Trump hooked up that night.

That said, 24-year-old pornstar Janice Griffith also praised Bernie's stance on Medicare for All. However, she blasted the other Democratic candidates.

"F*** Bloomberg... Buttigieg is a creepy plant mimicking talking points while skating around the issues never giving a straight answer," the star of 'Lubed' and' Vixen' said.

Meanwhile, adult actress and writer Sydney Leathers said she was supporting Sanders "because health care is my biggest issue as a voter and he’s the person with the best plan."

“I also believe he has the most motivated base, and the best chance of beating Trump," she added.
