Tennessee Senate Candidate Phil Bredesen Thanks Taylor Swift For Her Massive Endorsement

Taylor Swift's political statement prompts enormous uptick in voter registrations

"As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I can not support Marsha Blackburn", Swift wrote. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I can not support Marsha Blackburn.

Buzzfeed claim that the organization has seen 5,183 new voter registrations in the state so far this month - at least 2,144 of which were in the last 36 hours, she said, up from 2,811 for the entire month of September and just 951 in August.

In the less than 48 hours after Swifts post, Vote.org has seen more than 105,000 new voter registrations through its site, spokeswoman Kamari Guthrie told The Washington Post on Tuesday.

Swift has more than 112 million followers on Instagram, where on Sunday she criticized Tennessee Senate candidate and GOP Rep. "I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG".

"Vote.org saw [Tennessee] registrations spike specifically since Taylor's post", Guthrie revealed.

Of the roughly 240,000 people who have registered on Vote.org for the upcoming midterm elections on November 6, almost half, or about 102,000, are between the ages of 18 and 29, the website found.

"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", she wrote.

Taylor Swift's endorsement of two Democratic Party candidates has reportedly sparked a surge in voter registration for America's mid-term elections. "Happy voting", she wrote. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples.

Don't expect this scene to play out again anytime soon, given President Donald Trump's bad blood with Taylor Swift. "But people would still rather believe that she is the one who is pushing Trump's agenda".

Swift went on to encourage her 112 million followers to register to vote, noting that October 9 is the last day to register in her home state of Tennessee.

Swift, 28, has notably stayed out of the USA political fray in contrast to her more vocal peers, like Democratic supporters Katy Perry and Beyoncé, and Republican backer Kid Rock. "Let's say that I like Taylor's music about 25% less now".

Look what Taylor Swift made you do. [Taylor Swift] doesn't like your little games and she wants Tennesseans to know that you've been in the swamp long enough.
