The War for Taylor Swift’s Vote Has Already Begun

Progressives pressure pop superstar to drag Biden over finish line

Taylor Swift may regret 2023 ending.

Not only did it mark her most successful year to date, including a smash box office concert film, it meant she’ll be asked to do more than just sing in 2024.

She’ll be recruited to help President Joe Biden win a second term.

Sound farfetched?

In September, California Gov. Gavin Newsom predicted Swift could play an outsized role in the 2024 election season.

“What she was able to accomplish in getting young people activated to consider that they have a voice and they should have a voice in the next election, I think it’s profoundly powerful.”

MSNBC didn’t wait for the new year to suggest just that.

The far-Left outlet uncorked a reasonable op-ed about Swift’s sway over the 2024 presidential campaign.

At the very least, it’s difficult to see how it would hurt the 81-year-old incumbent to appear on the campaign trail with a 33-year-old superstar who has her finger on the pulse of young America and is the most beloved cultural icon in the country.

The writer argues she could change enough hearts and minds to impact the expected Biden-Trump rematch.

The Hill trotted out a similar argument earlier this month, including specific plans to aid Biden.

A more conservative approach to improving the likelihood of a Biden win may involve general nationwide calls to vote. A more aggressive intervention could include a complete endorsement of President Biden, potentially accompanied by joint public appearances or participation in private fundraisers.

And Democrats will need every ounce of Swift’s influence. 

The media and Democrats, but we repeat ourselves, won’t be able to lie about Hunter Biden’s laptop this time ’round, and Biden’s mental decline is getting harder to cover up.

RELATED: WHY TAYLOR SWIFT MUST DEFEND YOUNG CHIEFS FAN

Incumbent presidents can, and should, run on their records. Are you better off today than you were four years ago? The answer for the vast majority of Americans, of course, is [bleep] no. 

The term “Bidenomics” alone will be a handy cudgel for GOP strategists. Have you bought food or gas recently?

Yikes.

It’s why Swift’s name will be mentioned frequently in connection with Biden’s re-election campaign.

Will she take the bait?

Swift spent much of her career avoiding politics entirely. That changed following Donald Trump’s stunning presidential victory in 2016.

Yet this year she reverted to her apolitical stance as she criss-crossed America in her Eras Tour and watched her career reach unprecedented heights. Will she risk that by personally dragging Biden over the finish line?

Her youthful fans will shrug off the attempt. Others may not be as forgiving. 

Bud Light 2.0?

Should Swift stick to her apolitical mien you’ll see her fawning media coverage dry up. Even beau Travis Kelce might feel the sting.

When she failed to pick a side in the Trump-Clinton slugfest media outlets played the White Supremacist Card against her.

This time, reporters might be even nastier.

  1. Am I the only one who finds himself rooting against the Kansas City Chiefs now because you can’t go more than 15 minutes without having a shot of Taylor celebrating in the luxury box shoved in your face?

    1. No, I know a ton of die hard KC fans who will no longer watch their games because of her. Most of them gave come to despise KC too.

      She is just as hated as she is loved. It would be a huge mistake for her to enter the political arena and a huge mistake for the media to go after if she does stay out of it. She is a cult to her fans and it could sway the election to the right if the media messes around with her.

      She has more to lose if she enters and the media has more to lose if they go after her.

    2. Not at all. I’m not a KC fan, but more just watch football hoping to see an entertaining game than anything else. I find KC games annoying to watch these days because there’s so much screen time devoted to her. I don’t give a damn what her reaction to any given play is, but the NFL sure thinks it needs to be shown EVERY DAMN TIME KC makes a good play, especially if her boy toy Kelce is involved. And I swear it seems like they give the announcers a quota they have to meet as to how many times they mention her during a game. It’d be one thing if they showed her once during a game like they do with other celebrities. Like if you watch an Eagles game and they’re at home, you will probably see them show Bradley Cooper in attendance. But it’s ONE TIME. They don’t flash to him every time the Eagles make a good play. Yea, sure, he’s nowhere near as popular outside football as she is, but still. As I said before, I mainly watch just to see a good game and don’t actively root for one team over another, but damn if she doesn’t make me pull against KC when watching, because them doing poorly means less time with the NFL kissing her ass.

      1. Some things to bear in mind for context.
        Taylor Swift is an INDUSTRY. Scores, maybe hundreds of people depend upon her success for their livelihoods, and those same people have a stake in making sure she does nothing to kill the golden goose, or even to make her sick. Agents, managers, roadies, choreographers, music arrangers, publicists, lawyers, accountants, trainers, market researchers, web merchandisers, the list is very long. There are folks who do nothing but plot and plan which products she is — and is NOT — to be seen with, which restaurant she dines in, which gossip items are spread around and which ones suppressed. Being seen stepping out of a limo at the White House is one thing. Being seen letting corrupt, doddering, impeachable Brandon say your name wrong, then hug you and sniff your hair is something else.

    3. Couldn’t agree more. Previously, I couldin’t care less what she did or said. Now it is shoved down our throats. Truly, what does she have to do with professional football?

  2. I think Taylor already tried in 2018 when she gave her full endorsement to Phil Breesden in the TN senate race only to have him lose by ten points to the current GOP incumbent Marsha Blackburn, to which she earned a mocking even by Stephan Colbert who famously said that “Tay-Tay has no sway-sway.” I would think that the she wants nothing to do with politics after this, though liberals will try to force her hand but she more or less resist to aviod a repeat of TN.

    1. Exactly. I don’t think I’ve even heard one of her songs as I don’t listen to contemporary music since it all sounds alike with extremely untalented “singers”.

  3. What “War”? SHE’S A DEMOCRAT HAMAS SUPPORTER, What the effing CLICKBAIT? WHO THE F ELSE IS SHE GONNA VOTE FOR ….TRUMP? Dude, you clown yourself with this one.

  4. A quick scan of the comments above, looks like it is dominated by males. That’s not her audience and followers. So where’s the beef?
