Poll: The possible the impact of Taylor Swift’s Democratic endorsement

With some bad blood for Republican candidate Marsha Blackburn, Swift singled out Democrat Phil Bredesen as the lucky one in a post that cited the importance of support for rights for women, LGBT people and ethnic minorities. But when it came to the Republicans, Swift said she could not support “someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter what their skin color, gender or who they love.”

So how will this play with Swift’s fan base? The move isn’t as treacherous as you might think, as speculation that Swift’s fans would more likely be conservatives doesn’t necessarily ring true, with 38% of them already voting Democrat compared to 27% who vote Republican. Indeed, a majority (57%) define themselves as either ‘moderate’, ‘liberal’ or ‘very liberal’.
