    Tennessee Voting Experts Say Taylor Swift Might Actually Turn Their State Blue

    What’s perhaps most shocking about Taylor Swift breaking her career-long commitment to her apolitical image by posting a 392-word Instagram endorsement of two Tennessee Democrats is that Donald Trump, for once, didn't have much to say about it. Not a “Sad!” nor a “Hater!” or even a “Loser!”

    “Let’s say that I like Taylor’s music about 25 percent less now,” the president responded in uncharacteristically tepid “Shake It Off” form, when asked about Swift’s remarks Tuesday. In the past, Trump has rage-tweeted at celebrity critics like Lebron James, Kathy Griffin and Modern Family executive producer Danny Zuker, who’s not even a celebrity. So why didn't he let Swift have it after she said that Republican Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn’s voting record “appalls and terrifies me” in the midst of an extremely close Senate race?

    Maybe Trump is afraid of the pop star. Swift's post, endorsing incumbent Tennessee Democrat Rep. Jim Cooper and, more significantly, former Tennessee Governor and current Senate candidate Phil Bredesen, has already led to a spike in voter registration and genuine consideration that Swift could help flip Tennessee, a state that’s burning red.

    Blackburn is going to win by at least 6 points.

    Vice is just publishing fan fiction.

    While probably true, it's a shame. Blackburn is the polar opposite of what both a rapidly growing Tennessee and the US writ large need.
