Taylor Swift made her entrance into the 2024 Presidential contest.

She is the biggest pop star in the world.

And Taylor Swift made this major 2024 endorsement announcement.

Taylor Swift posts get out the vote message ahead of Super Tuesday Primaries 

In the run-up to the Super Bowl, rumors swirled that pop star Taylor Swift would use the opportunity provided by a record television audience – over 123 million Americans watched the game – and the fact that she attended the game to endorse President Joe Biden.

That didn’t happen.

But on Super Tuesday – where 16 states and America Samoa held primaries and caucuses – Swift posted a message on social media telling her fans to vote.

“Today, March 5, is the Presidential Primary in Tennessee and 16 other states and territories. I wanted to remind you guys to vote the people who most represent YOU into power. If you haven’t already, make a plan to vote today. Whether you’re in Tennessee or somewhere else in the US, check your polling places and times at VOTE.ORG,” Swift posted.

Swift’s mixed record in politics 

Taylor Swift didn’t endorse anyone in the 2016 Election.

Democrats hounded Swift after Hillary Clinton’s loss and she changed course in the 2018 Midterm Election 

She endorsed Democrat challenger Phil Bredesen against then-Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) in Tennessee’s Senate contest.

“As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn,” Swift declared. “Her voting record in Congress appalls and terrifies me. She voted against equal pay for women. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples. She also believes they should not have the right to marry. These are not MY Tennessee values.”

Her endorsement had no effect as Blackburn routed Bredesen in the election.

Two years later, Swift denounced former President Donald Trump as a white supremacist and endorsed Joe Biden.

Even though no celebrity endorsement ever mattered in an election, Democrats are hoping Swift’s legion of loyal fans would turn out in November.

But her fan base – young, single women – is one of the few voting demographics enthusiastic about voting for Biden because abortion is the only issue they care about.

The fact that Biden’s campaign is actually hoping for a Swift endorsement shows the desperate straits the President is in right now.
