Can Taylor Swift help Joe Biden find young voters?

Published

on

As the Kansas City Chiefs secure their spot in the 2024 Super Bowl, former Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy has made a big claim about Taylor Swift.

Ramaswamy, who had previously withdrawn from the presidential race to endorse Donald Trump, has predicted that the upcoming Super Bowl showdown between the Chiefs and the San Francisco 49ers may be manipulated in favor of the Chiefs.

He believes this scenario is intended to set the stage for Taylor Swift’s potential endorsement of President Biden later in the year.

Political inclinations

Ramaswamy’s comments come in response to a theory put forth by alt-right media personality Jack Posobiec, who suggested a link between Swift’s past actions and her political inclinations.

Posobiec, known for spearheading conspiracy theories such as “Pizzagate,” implied a connection between Swift’s 2019 dispute with the Soros family over the rights to her music and her subsequent shift towards liberal viewpoints in 2020.

In a tweet, Ramaswamy stated, “I wonder who’s going to win the Super Bowl next month. And I wonder if there’s a major presidential endorsement coming from an artificially culturally propped-up couple this fall.”

He added, “Just some wild speculation over here; let’s see how it ages over the next eight months.”

The possibility of Taylor Swift endorsing President Biden has garnered significant attention. California Governor Gavin Newsom, a prominent Biden supporter, has publicly encouraged Swift to lend her support to the president’s campaign.

Young voters

Newsom highlighted the impact of Swift’s influence on young voters and her ability to activate them to participate in the political process.

Swift’s support could potentially add substantial value to both the NFL and the Kansas City Chiefs. According to reports, Swift has generated a “brand value” of $331.5 million for the Chiefs and the NFL through her attendance at games and her public appearances alongside Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce.

Her influence has extended beyond the football field, contributing to increased female viewership of NFL games and higher merchandise sales, particularly related to Kelce.

Swift’s impact on the NFL’s regular-season female viewership and the 18-to-34 demographic has been significant, according to data collected by Front Office Sports.

The romantic connection between Swift and Kelce has garnered attention and even earned the NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell’s approval. Goodell acknowledged that their relationship has connected more fans of Taylor Swift and the NFL, strengthening the bond between the pop star’s fanbase and the football league.

Democrats scramble to rally behind Harris as Trump allies launch next phase of campaign

Biden Withdraws: President Joe Biden Ends Reelection Bid, Endorses Kamala Harris.

 

After weeks of battling to salvage his political career – claiming he wouldn’t be stepping down after a disastrous debate performance – the president’s sudden change of course was not announced through an Oval Office address or a campaign speech. Instead, it was revealed in a letter posted to social media while he was recovering from Covid-19 at his beach house in Delaware.

“And while it has been my intention to seek reelection, I believe it is in the best interest of my party and the country for me to stand down and to focus solely on fulfilling my duties as President for the remainder of my term,” Biden wrote in a letter posted to X.

Harris expressed her gratitude for Biden’s endorsement, stating she is “honoured” and committed to “earning and winning” the nomination. Should she secure the nomination, Harris would make history as the first Black woman and first Asian American to lead the ticket of a major political party. To facilitate her candidacy, the Biden-Harris campaign has updated its filings with the Federal Election Commission, renaming its principal committee to reflect Harris’s new status as a presidential candidate.

Despite Biden’s support, the path forward remains uncertain. It is unclear whether Harris will automatically become the nominee or what alternative processes the Democratic Party might consider. Additionally, sources suggest that Senator Joe Manchin, an independent from West Virginia, is contemplating re-registering as a Democrat to enter the presidential race.

In response to Biden’s withdrawal, former President Donald Trump criticised Biden as “the worst president by far in the history of our country” during a call with CNN. Trump has also launched a fundraising appeal to rally his supporters.

Trump allies launch campaign against Kamala Harris as he boasts an easier victory

Published

Donald Trump has said he thinks Kamala Harris will be easier to beat than Joe Biden.

With Biden out, Trump’s campaign will now adjust its strategy, focusing on attacking Harris and any other possible Democratic candidates. They aim to convince voters that Harris would be just as ineffective as Biden.

Biden faced growing doubts about his ability to win re-election, especially after a weak debate performance against Trump. Some Democrats also lost confidence in his leadership, leading him to step down.

Donald Trump said he thinks Kamala Harris will be easier to defeat than Biden. Trump and his team quickly began attacking both Biden and Harris online, claiming that Biden was not fit to be president and that Harris would be just as bad.

Allies of former President Donald Trump quickly launched their campaign against Vice President Kamala Harris on Sunday afternoon, preparing a series of anti-Harris ads and planning their strategies for attacking her.

“I call her laughing Kamala,” Trump told the crowd, during his nearly two-hour appearance. “You can tell a lot by a laugh. She’s crazy. She’s nuts.”
