According to Yahoo News American Idol winner “Kelly Clarkson new album “Stronger” sale is down after she tweeted she’s endorsing Ron Paul.

“Stronger”  climbed to No. 17 from No. 39 on the Billboard 200 albums chart.  The overall album market dropped 49% that week.

Only 25,000 copies of “Stronger” for the week ending Sunday, January 1, compared to 41,000 copies sold the previous week.

Also according to Yahoo Clarkson’s fans are not happy with her choice.

“I love Ron Paul. I liked him a lot during the last Republican nomination and no one gave him a chance. If he wins the nomination for the Republican party in 2012 he’s got my vote. Too bad he probably won’t,” she tweeted last Wednesday.

Although some supported the singer by writing comments on the Amazon page for her album and by following her on Twitter, not everyone was happy about her tweet. Her message received backlash across Twitter, as some of her longtime fans stopped following the original American Idol winner and others accused her of supporting racism.

(Newsletters published in Paul’s name in the 1980s and 1990s included some racist sentiments. However, he recently deemed the comments “terrible” and said someone else wrote them).

They also blasted Clarkson for endorsing a candidate that supports the death penalty and opposes same-sex marriage.
