Trump likes Swift's music 25% less after political post

Erin O. Smith  Chattanooga Times Free Press via Associated Press

After her post went up, encouraging fans to go to vote.org, the site saw more than 155,000 unique visitors in a 24-hour period.

Taylor Swift's politically-charged post sparks a surge of voter registrations.

Fox News obtained data from Vote.org on Tuesday that shows new voter registration spiked nationwide, and in her home state of Tennessee, after the singer's post. That's more people that registered in one day than in the entire month of August.

In an Instagram post Sunday, Swift endorsed Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Phil Bredesen, who is running against Republican nominee U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn in a closely watched race.

Blackburn's campaign didn't comment on Swift's post, but President Trump did.

"Thank God for Taylor Swift", said Guthrie.

"Let's say that I like Taylor's music about 25 percent less now", he added.

Gasquet, who has played tiebreaks in five of six sets this week, will face Kei Nishikori in the semifinals on Saturday. Of course I'm winning tough tie-breaks this week. "I'll have to play at my best level.".

Swift is now on a world tour to support her top-selling 2017 album Reputation, and will perform live at the American Music Awards show in Los Angeles on Tuesday. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I can not support Marsha Blackburn. "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".

He said: "Marsha Blackburn is doing a very good job in Tennessee". "It's rather evident and clear-I don't want to accuse her of this", he says before lobbing insulting accusations, "but I don't think she was the only one to write that post on Instagram".

The Speak Now singer said she was a supporter of gay rights and women's rights, and against racism.

Swift wrote that the Tennessee Republican's voting record "appalls and terrifies" her, noting that Blackburn opposes reauthorizing the Violence Against Women Act and supports businesses that decline to serve gay couples due to their religious views.

Swift, 28, has notably stayed out of the USA political fray in contrast to her more vocal peers, like Democratic supporters Katy Perry and Beyoncé, and Republican backer Kid Rock. As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I can not support Marsha Blackburn. These are not MY Tennessee values. But first you need to register, which is quick and easy to do. For a lot of us, we may never find a candidate or party with whom we agree 100% on every issue, but we have to vote anyway.

In a number of states, the deadline to register to vote is today, October 9th.
