Politico published a piece this week suggesting that pop star Taylor Swift could help tilt the state of Florida in favor of Democrats.
Poltico’s headline read, “Could Taylor Swift tilt Florida blue? It’s Democrats’ wildest dream.”
The outlet then cited questions over why Swift named a song on her new album “Florida!!!” and her decision to hold three concerts in Miami ahead of the presidential elections in November.
According to Democrat Rep. Maxwell Frost, Swift could help sway the state.
“It’s so close to the election, and we hope that there’s a message included to encourage folks, especially her fans, to go vote,” said Frost.
“We need the help.”
Democrats will plan voter registration drives at Swift concerts and “hold listening sessions and karaoke parties of her music as part of ‘A Day of Action (Taylor’s Version)’ when her new album is released in April.”
Democrats also hope Swift will use her Miami concerts to push left-leaning propaganda on young people in Florida.
“Jayden D’Onofrio, who chairs the Florida Democratic Party’s Youth Council, said party members would be at all Swift’s concerts to ensure they’re engaging young people. D’Onofrio, who also leads the Florida Future Leaders PAC geared toward high school and college students, added: “People care about her. People understand the importance of her. She is a youth icon.”
That Florida Democrats are pinning their hopes on a megastar like Swift speaks volumes of the state of the party. The once reliable swing state now leans Republican, with the GOP holding supermajorities in the state Legislature as well as every position in the Cabinet. Republicans outnumber Democrats in voter registration numbers by almost 780,000 voters and former President Donald Trump won Florida in 2016 and 2020.“
Swift endorsed Joe Biden in 2020, but she has not said whether she will endorse him again in this next election cycle.
Breitbart noted how Swift’s political action could majorly affect the election.
“A new poll shows that Taylor Swift could impact the outcome of this year’s presidential election, with 18 percent of voters saying they’re “more likely” or “significantly more likely” to vote for a candidate endorsed by Swift.”
“The alarming results come from polling conducted for Newsweek by Redfield & Wilton Strategies. The survey, which had a sample size of 1,500 eligible voters, was conducted on January 18 and had a margin of error of plus or minus 2.53 percent.”
RINOs have also come out in full support of Swift, including Anti-Trump Liz Cheney, who declared herself a fan in an X post last week.
Cheney called the left-wing pop star a “national treasure.”
