Those who thought that it wasn't important celebrities got involved in politics are being proven wrong now that Taylor Swift has opened up about her own values. It seems her pro-Democrat statement recently has caused a spike in voting registrations in her home state of Tennessee as well as nationwide.
On Sunday (October 7th 2018), the 28-year-old wrote on Instagram of her support for Democrats Phil Bredesen for Senate in Tennessee and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives ahead of the midterm elections on November 6th, and publicly slammed the policies of Marsha Blackburn.Since then, it has been reported that Vote.org recieved a spike of 65,000 registrations in 24 hours - which might not sound like a lot to the unitiated but when you consider that just 56,669 people registered in August and 190,178 registered in the whole of September, it's not a bad number at all.
Meanwhile, Tennessee registrations have peaked at 5,183 so far this month - and it's thought that 2,144 have been just over the last 36 hours, according to Buzzfeed.
Taylor Swift had remained deafeningly silent on all issues regarding politics over the course of her career. That wouldn't have mattered so much in the past, but now that the liberties of the people in her own country are under threat from the Trump regime, her voice is needed to represent the young minds of the nation.
Thus, the majority of Swift's fans could not have been more pleased to see her put her brand in the firing line by picking a side, even if it meant potentially losing millions of fans. —contactmusic
