– Joe Biden’s campaign team is reportedly creating a strategy to earn pop artist Taylor Swift’s endorsement in the 2024 elections.
– Taylor Swift has historically supported Democratic candidates, endorsing Biden in the 2020 presidential election.
– Conspiracy theories surround Swift’s appearances at NFL games and potential political affiliations.
Biden’s Strategy: Swift’s Endorsement
As President Joe Biden’s approval ratings touch historical lows, his campaign is reportedly pinning hopes on an endorsement from pop superstar Taylor Swift. As per The New York Times, the White House is brainstorming ways to acquire Swift’s official support going into the 2024 elections.
Part of the erstwhile “Taylor Swift Strategy,” jokingly proposed, was the possibility of the President attending one of Swift’s performances from her ongoing “Eras Tour.” This idea likely surfaced during the U.S. leg of the tour in 2023.
Swift’s Political Stance
Looking at the past, Swift’s endorsement for Biden seems plausible. She publicly endorsed Biden for the presidency in 2020. Swift has often made her unfavorable views on Trump loud and clear. Commemorating her endorsement in 2020, Taylor Swift had tweeted, featuring custom-made cookies reflecting her choice.
Republican politician Vivek Ramaswamy had withdrawn his candidacy, endorsing Trump this month. He sparked controversy by hinting that the NFL might manipulate games to ensure Swift has more screen time in anticipation of a Biden endorsement.
Politically Infused NFL Narratives
Interestingly, Swift has consistently cheered for her boyfriend, Travis Kelce, throughout the NFL games. Kelce plays as the tight end for Kansas City Chiefs, the reigning Super Bowl champions. Their securing a place in the upcoming Super Bowl has intensified conspiracy theories.
Echoing Ramaswamy, GOP dropout Jack Lombardi II holds firm that the NFL’s journey to the Super Bowl has been orchestrated, including prominent coverage of Swift at the games. Lombardi called her a “controlled influencer” working on a hidden political agenda.
Awaiting Swift’s Political Call
Swift has yet to comment on the 2024 presidential elections. However, her relationship with politics has remained under close scrutiny. Vocal about her political stance in the past, Swift’s potential endorsement could be a significant point in the run-up to the 2024 general polls.
While the President’s team is weaving strategies to draw her into the pro-Biden camp, conspiracy theories are weaving narratives around her. As Swift continues to remain silent on the issue, all speculation remains primarily in the realm of conjecture.
The 2024 election scenario will be one to watch closely. The influence of celebrity endorsements on voter behavior is much-debated in political science, and Swift’s endorsement could indeed serve as a tipping point in Biden’s favor. With Election Day not too far away, we can only wait and watch.
