When every vote counts, such support can be worth its weight in gold. According to American media, Joe Biden’s team is trying to get Taylor Swift to support him in the presidential elections. The singer is now one of the biggest stars on earth, maybe even the biggest.
Taylor Swift is one of the most popular artists in the world. Such interest from fans and, consequently, also from the media, is a huge power. Not only purely marketing, but even political. It is therefore no wonder that – as “The New York Times” writes – there is a fight for Taylor Swift to publicly support Joe Biden’s re-election. “Taylor Swift is the queen of pop and an NFL fan who can influence the behavior of millions of her followers with one post on Instagram or a statement from the stage. (…) One of the ideas, discussed in jest for now, is that the president could come up with one of from her concerts,” reports “The New York Times.”
In spring and summer, Taylor Swift will indeed be on tour, but in Europe. He will return to the United States with concerts in the fall – just in time for the finale of the election campaign, because the presidential elections will be held there in November.
Her support for Democrats does not seem so unrealistic, because already in 2020 she openly encouraged people to vote for Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. Is the singer’s more active participation in the election campaign possible this time? It is unknown.
White House representatives refuse to comment for now, but they do not deny it either. – By law, as a public official, I must comment very carefully on matters related to the upcoming elections. Of course, there are a lot of Taylor Swift fans in our press office. Let me say nothing more. I will not discuss the president’s plans for the campaign, says Karine Jean-Pierre, White House spokeswoman.
The power of popularity
Taylor Swift started out as a humble country singing teenager and is now one of the most popular artists on Earth. Her Instagram account is followed by 279 million people, and Time magazine named her “Person of 2023”. When she announced that she was going on tour, the madness began.
Tickets for American concerts cost up to $28,000. Democrats see huge political potential in this, and yet in a clash with Donald Trump they will need all possible arguments. In September 2023, under the influence of one entry encouraging people to vote, 35,000 people immediately registered for the elections.
– Taylor Swift is proud and unique. The way she motivated young people to take part in the elections is impressive. He uses his popularity for good. It’s pathetic when Republicans criticize her for encouraging people to vote, California Governor Gavin Newsom said in 2023. Although it seemed impossible, Swift has been attracting even more attention in recent months because she started dating a football player – Travis Kelce from the Kansas City Chiefs. Since they have been a couple, the value of his club has already increased by over $330 million. Whatever the singer touches turns into gold.
