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.

So, nay to Reagan, Arnie, Beloved Leader and Kanye, then.



They've tried this before and it never works. Celebrities asking people to vote D or R never works.

Whoever listens to Taylor Swift should be revoked the right to vote.

Yeah.. Just like when Charles Barkley told people in Alabama to vote for Doug Jones, nothing happened. Oh wait a sec, Doug Jones won.

For Republican senators that's probably all the qualifications you need to be a Justice on the supreme court.

And what is your proof that Barkley was responsible for his win? Was he down like 10 points before the endorsement and then immediately after won? 

Correlation does not imply causation.

Who says that guy would not have won without Charles saying a word?

Sorry. That wasn't because of Barkley. Celebrities have zero impact. Never have and never will.  Doug Jones was a shoe in to win no matter what.

This is hilarious.. When a celebrity endorses a candidate or encourage people to register to vote. Your answer: "Nothing never happens"

When people do register to vote, and said candidate wins. Your answer: "They were going to win anyways"

 

I'm kinda busy right now so I'll come back later with more sophisticated proof. (even though it may not change anything)

Oprah Winfrey's endorsement of Obama in 2008 was found to increase overall voter participation and number of contributions received by Obama, and an estimated overall 1 million additional votes.

Another example is Hillary who had many celeb endorsement won the popular vote by over 3mil.
