Has Taylor Swift Made Any Impact on the Midterm Election?

Recently, millennial singer and music producer Taylor Swift came out in support of the Democrats for the Midterm Elections. Considering the farce that ex-President Obama was running in many Democratic conventions, it was imperative that the Blue Wave needed a fresher face to stand at the center of their depleting campaign.

Swift took to social media to voice her support for the Democrats and said that she will be voting in the Midterm elections for the Democrats. “I’m writing this post about the upcoming midterm elections on November 6th, in which I’ll be voting in the state of Tennessee. In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now,” she began.

Swift then followed with a rather inconclusive rant at the current state of affairs in the USA. She then took a jab at Republican State candidate, Marsha Blackburn. “Running for Senate in the state of Tennessee is a woman named Marsha Blackburn. As much as I have in the past and would love to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn. Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me. She voted against equal pay for women.

She voted against the Re-authorization of the Violence Against Women act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples.

She also believes they should not have the right to marry,” wrote Swift.

But has any of this had an impact on the voter turnout and the public response? We don’t think so. People are starting to look at the economic prosperity under Trump, and they are not going to be dictated by a celebrity with partisan views on politics.
