It seems like it's not going to help in Tennessee.

The margin of error is 6 points. The only thing a bigger N will do is reduce that MoE.

You can see where it is settling. 

Now of course this is only one poll, it could be an outlier. Also, since the poll isn't of a randomly selected population possibly the weights the pollsters used to accommodate for that aren't strong enough. 

But +17, is a very large result.

I understand the skepticism but still after her Instagram went up 65k people registered to vote within 24hrs nationwide. It's also true that more people tend to sign up before the deadline, but I think her message really had an impact.

In Tennessee where Swift is registered to vote, also saw a large spike in sign-ups. "Vote.org, told BuzzFeed that the organization had seen 2,144 new registrations in the last 36 hours, and 5,183 so far this month. Those numbers far outstrip the 2,811 Tennessee new voters who signed up during the entire month of September"

I'm not sure how much Taylor Swift is gonna help the dems. But I do know this, a cavalcade of celebrities did not keep Donald Trump out of the White House.

Its a right leaning state, but I encourage people to do whatever Taylor wants.

There were 112 million Americans who weren't registered to vote and they all follow Taylor Swift on Instagram?

This made me laugh.



How many % of eligible voters usually vote in the US?



If people start to vote after a celebrity asks them then they really have lost the control of their lives.

Good.

More and more young people should be encouraged to vote.

I think its more important that people knowledgeable vote instead of following an idol.
