The latest poll on the Senate race between Marsha Blackburn and the former governor of Tennessee just came out…Blackburn opened up an 8 point lead! This is a stunning development for so many reasons. One big reason is that pop star Taylor Swift endorsed Phil Bredesen so you’d think it would give him a boost in the polls, right? Well, Bredesen isn’t leading in the polls for the first time! Looks like this endorsement backfired!
Gateway Pundit reports:
Real Clear Politics had Bredesen leading through most of the year, right up until around the time the Kavanaugh hearings started. Until late September, Bredesen was up by a few percentage points. Then another poll in late September and early October showed Blackburn up by 5 points. And now a week later she’s extending her lead.
Yes, it could be that once Swift endorsed the former governor, voters decided to stand up for Blackburn. It could also be the visit to Tennessee by President Trump last week.
Could people be looking into the candidates more closely?
They might have uncovered what we did about Phil Bredesen. Our previous report on Bredesen reveals things that most voters would be shocked at. It involves sexual assault and shredding evidence!
OUR PREVIOUS REPORT ON MARSHA BLACKBURN’S OPPONENT:
Taylor Swift thinks we care about who she endorses…we don’t. Why would we ask a pop star for advice on politics? We might ask her to sing or write a song but we’d never consider asking her for political advice. We think most people feel the same way but Taylor Swift lives in the world of Hollywood political self-importance. She just came out with a political endorsement on INSTAGRAM for the Democrat running for US Senate in Tennessee. The problem is she doesn’t know what she’s talking about (see below). Don’t you love it when pop singers play political activist? It exposes them for the clueless hacks they are.
Bet she doesn’t know this…Here’s a little more from WFB on the candidate Swift endorsed:
Tennessee Democrat Phil Bredesen, a top party recruit who announced his Senate campaign on Thursday morning, was criticized for hiding details of sexual assault investigations into his top officials during his tenure as the state’s governor.
Yes, the Democrat Swift endorsed has some problems…The WFB went on to report that documents related to sexual harassment during Bredesen’s tenure were shredded. The Tennesseean and the AP both investigated and found something fishy was going on:
“The governor’s office has become involved in a select number of workplace harassment complaints against top state officials and has put them under a veil of secrecy that does not apply to ordinary state workers, a Tennessean review of case files shows,” the paper wrote in July 2005 after finding that shredding of documents was common for investigations into officials at the level of Cooper and White.
The AP, which conducted its own thorough review of workplace harassment in Bredesen’s office, came to a similar conclusion.
“In a review last year of 602 workplace harassment case files across all levels of state government, the AP reported that documents were shredded only in high-profile cases,” the AP similarly found around the same time.
On the other hand, Marsha Blackburn is squeaky clean. She’s a fantastic candidate with a strong conservative record.
Support for Marsha has now grown because of Taylor Swift’s endorsement. Social media lit up with supporters coming out of the woodwork:
My doctor is a really bright guy yet, I’ve never once asked him who he supports in a political race. So why would Taylor Swift think we give a shit what she thinks about the Tennessee Senate race? Hard pass.#LookWhatYouMadeMeDo
