Taylor Swift's political Instagram statement had an impact on voter registration!

Former Star Trek actor George Takei was among those welcoming Swift's declaration ahead of what are expected to be polarizing elections in November.

Swift, who has largely eschewed politics even as she has become one of pop music's biggest global superstars, told her followers she could not support Blackburn due to the congresswoman's record on women's issues and gay rights. "I believe in the fight for LGBTQ rights, and that any form of discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender is WRONG".

Swift, 28, noted Blackburn's voted against equal pay for women, against reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act that protects women from domestic abuse, and opposes marriage equality. They are running for the Senate and House of Representatives, respectively. "I can not vote for someone who will not be willing to fight for dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love". "So many intelligent, thoughtful, self-possessed people have turned 18 in the past two years and now have the right and privilege to make their vote count".

She supported Democratic political candidates in Tennessee in an Instagram post over the weekend, and the post has since drawn responses from conservative political commentators and President Donald Trump, among others. "Let's say that I like Taylor's music about 25 percent less now, OK?" She represented Tennessee's 7th congressional district.
