Taylor Swift Caused a Huge Surge in Voter Registration



4d8bb7739d3eefa09840995dc329ab92

From Seventeen

We all know Taylor Swift is powerful, but after her Instagram post yesterday in which she (finally) spoke out about her politics, it emerges she may have even more clout than we thought. If you missed it, on Sunday night, Swift posted a political note to Instagram in which she endorsed Phil Bredesen for Tennessee Senator and Jim Cooper for Representative.

In the post, she talked to her 112 million Instagram followers and 83.6 million Twitter followers about Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn’s congressional voting record, which Swift said “appalls and terrifies me.” She went on:

“I always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country. I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG. I believe that the systemic racism we still see in this country towards people of color is terrifying, sickening and prevalent.”

She then sent her followers to vote.org to register, and urged them to get educated on the candidates running in their areas.

You can read more about the post and who she endorsed here-but suffice to say, this was a pretty big reversal from Taylor, who’s been notably mum on politics for a long time. Remember during the 2016 election when she told her followers to simply “vote” without endorsing any particular candidate? That was weak.

But better late than never for Swift, because she just made her voice really count. According to Vote.org’s Director of Communications Kamari Guthrie, who was interviewed by Buzzfeed News, Taylor’s endorsement created a massive uptick in voter registration since it was posted. “We are up to 65,000 registrations in a single 24-hour period since T. Swift’s post,” Guthrie told BuzzFeed, and added, “Thank God for Taylor Swift.”


Not everyone was as thrilled about her sudden activist awakening. President Donald Trump told reporters he likes her “music about 25 percent less” since she endorsed Democratic candidates. Former Arkansas Governor and Republican TV host Mike Huckabee, who now presumably resides under a rock, tweeted that her endorsement “won’t impact the election unless we allow 13 year old girls to vote.”

Is it just me, or do those guys seem a little scared?

Unfortunately even a celebrity endorsement hasn't helped Tennessee Democrats much. 

Check them polls that them Hillary Clinton snowflakes followed. I'll bet they even show Dems loosing in Tennessee.

Taylor Swift!!  What an absolute sweetheart, so beautiful and talented, her parents must be so proud.  And there is no bigger star on the planet.  Taylor can motivate young people to vote like nobody else.  Be afraid, Trumpists, be VERY afraid...

That is a good thing, now if they actually turn out and vote it will become a very good thing.

For myself, a political endorsement of any type celebrity or not means little to nothing to me. But if that is what it takes to motivate others then by all means.

I will some, if nothing else but to add some balance to the system. But of course there's more reason to.  But the balance to me is the most important factor at this point. Checks and balance, kinda hard to achieve with a one party nation.

I agree, IMO: Hillary hanging around long after her effective time is hurting the dems hard.

Thank you for your service Mrs. Clinton, we got it from here now go enjoy your retirement is how I feel as well on her especially.

Some of the other dinosaurs from both sides I'd also like to see say, "So long , good bye, its been fun and retire as well. 

I try not to vote for anyone to old these days myself even though I'm an old fart myself.  I think We get too set in our ways so middle age is what I want thinking about and solving the major problems of the world us older people do great at advising them though.

LOL... You may be correct, centrists might. 

I wouldn't. 

As far as trump. People here may not know how much effort, energy and time I spent trying to keep this man from taking control.  Why ?  Because I think mr now president trump  poses a serious possible long term threat to the constitutional federal republic by the way he  would and is now governing. 

What I also believe you are also correct on, many on the left dont like or believe, because I do believe trump has good intentions for the country. its his saving grace.

And if people remember it trump had just switched parties right before he ran, dems ought to be grateful for that, I think he knew the republican party was more split at the time so was easier to conquer.

I just do not like or approve of most of mr. trump, his personality and Mainly, his ways and means of accomplishing anything.  I think he's ways are dangerous for the long term governing of the country as it may remain long after trumps gone.

And yes as I see it Both side have major problems thus why I dont belong to neither. 

I try as hard as I can to be neutral but like all of us I do have my preferences many times.  I think it helps though to try hard to see both sides of any and all issues.  I wish more of us really did, but,

to each their own.

and do have a nice day, they are limited

In fact back then at that age I was a kid, I didn't care about politics, but it seems times have changed. Some of the kids of today are much more mature in some ways. That's probably a good thing considering how childish many adults in politics are now acting.

Yeah i hear you but i'm not so sure.   I was pretty politically active, starting in my late teens.   That said, my politics have changed significantly since then.   Lifes experiences have a way of doing that i guess.

That is not to say i think more young involvement is a bad thing.   On the contrary, i think it is a good thing but there is a reason jobs like POTUS have a minimum age requirement.   Experience is the best teacher and most younger folks still have a lot to learn.    Just like all of us did at that age.

I have my doubts that Taylor Swift can influence many young people to vote, or who to vote for. It will be interesting to see how many people who registered on her urging actually vote. If they werent interested before she said something, they may lose interest a week or so after she said something.

Agreed and honestly, anyone who lets a pop star or some other such celebrity influence their vote like that probably needs some help anyway. Wasted vote ....

Why, whoever would do such a thing to get votes?

Yep, i call that wishful thinking but only time will tell for sure .....

All i know is i won't be whining like a little baby like many on the left will if their blue wave doesn't come to fruition.   And make no mistake.   Anything less than a typical minority party midterm win in congress will be a loss for the left

Lol who is that Kanye?   Who cares what he thinks?   Not me at least.

Like Taylor, i doubt many votes will be swayed by what he thinks.  

Certainly not the black vote.

"Don't watch it"

the GOP refrain...'stick your head in the sand'...maybe a symbolic change from the elephant to the ostrich is in order.

That was his worst performance that I can recall - I guess his only performance in the recent past.

No surprise...Kanye is called a "token" Negro by some on the left, and on national tv, for expressing his political views.

It is my understanding that black people can call each other whatever they want, wherever they want, without my approval or disapproval.

btw, Setmayer is a conservative, an anti Trump Republican.  Hardly a "leftist".

Thank you! You know I’m undeterred by the MAGA foolishness. This here conservative is confident my principles are fully in tact unlike those attacking me for calling it straight about Kanye. I stand by what I said 100%. He is uninformed & is being used willfully. https://twitter.com/TaraSetmayer

Taylor Swift Caused a Huge Surge in Voter Registration

Then promptly reigned over the lowest ratings AMA in history.

Kinda tells you something, huh, libs?

8.1  Sparty On  replied to  bugsy @8    3 days ago

Nah, voter registration always surges near the registration deadline.   Which is October 9th in most states  

It has little if anything to do with a 0.1 percenter like Swift.

Nope, wrong again but feel free to show me where i said that here already.

I haven't

  I could care less each time.

And yet ..... you still feel a need to respond .....

My comment is factual and very appropriate to the discussion at hand.    But i understand.   Facts can be very inconvenient when they clearly contradict a false narrative like the one being pushed in this seed.

Of course it is.

I'm sure she did help increase registrations but saying she caused the surge?  

Nope, that would be the deadline that caused that.   Not little miss can't be wrong.

Quite possibly her showing her support for Democrats had nothing to do with the upsurge in voter registration, because the last day to register was the 9th in many states, so there is always an uptick when that date gets close.

However, most Americans see award shows for what hey truly are...Liberals Hollywood "performers" patting themselves on the back, giving awards to each other, and making these shows a platform for loony left ideals.

America has tuned them out for a reason, and that reason is not good for liberals of America. (Thank God there are not that many remaining).

What utter nonsense.  Lots of people don't and never did watch these award shows.

So only liberals are performers or musicians and actresses and actors?  

So only Donald Rump and his supporters and the gop have a right to freedom of expression or only those that have the same views as them?

Like Kanye West?

And alot less are doing so, mainly because the [ldeleted] has decided that award shows are the best place to view their loony left political ideology.

Of course everyone has a right to voice their views, but think about this...

What celebrity hit it big their next movie after going on a loony rant about how they hate Trump, Republicans, Conservative, or voice their loony left political view in social media or some other public venue...?

Answer...none...Most of their next movies bite the dust the first week of opening.

Moral of the story?   Nobody wants to hear or see a [deleted] if they spew hatred for what most Americans value.
