We’re going to take a poll at the bottom of this post, but before we get there, let’s throw out the question first so you have time to mull it over: Does a celebrity’s stance on politics affect how you vote? Seriously. Think about it, and remember the poll is anonymous so we can’t judge you for whatever option you choose. Not that we’d judge you anyway, of course.
While some celebrities are all about speaking about their politics and who has their support some, like Taylor Swift, won’t share who has their vote. Why? Because she doesn’t want to “influence” anyone. As we all know, celebrities influence, people! This isn’t just a rumor, it’s a fact. And a fact that is really fucking scary when you realize how much of America still has a hard-on for the Kardashians.
As Swift told Time in regards to her political view:
“I follow it, and I try to keep myself as educated and informed as possible. But I don’t talk about politics because it might influence other people. And I don’t think that I know enough yet in life to be telling people who to vote for.”
Well, well. Is this gal full of herself? Or maybe she just doesn’t know “enough yet in life” and that is indeed the reason why she’s staying quiet on the subject? Does anyone, celebrity or not, actually believe they have that much of an influence on someone’s vote? It has always been my understanding that people voted based on the candidate’s platform and not how someone else, a celebrity especially, swings on the political spectrum.
So, dare the question be posed? Yes, let’s ask it:
