We consider the set $\F$ of the $C^1$-maps $f:\S^1 \to \S^1$ which are of degree 2, uniformly expanding except for a small interval and such that the origin is a fixed critical point. Fixing a $f \in \F$, we show that, for a generic $\alpha$-Hölder potential $A:\S^1 \to \RR$, the $f$-invariant probability measure that maximizes the action given by the integral of $A$ is unique and uniquely ergodic on its support. Furthermore, restricting $f$ to a suitable subset of $\S^1$, we also show that this measure is supported on periodic orbits. Our main tool is the existence of a $\alpha$-Hölder sub-action function for each fixed $f \in \F$ and each fixed potential $A$. We also show that these results can be applied to the special potential $A=\log|f'|$.
