Donald Trump says he likes Taylor Swift's music less post-endorsement

In a lengthy Instagram post on October 7, Taylor came out swinging against Tennessee's Republican U.S. Senate candidate Marsha Blackburn, writing that she would only vote for a candidate who believed in "dignity for ALL Americans, no matter their skin color, gender or who they love".

The star said that while she had been "reluctant" to voice her political opinions in the past, "due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now".

"I'm sure Taylor Swift doesn't know anything about her. Let's say I like Taylor's music about 25 percent less now, okay?" On separate occasions on Twitter in 2012 he called her "fantastic" and "terrific".

"It is just unfortunate; we reached a point in our culture where everything is politicized, where everyone has to have opinion". Here is a look.

As to the ultimate outcome, November's congressional elections will show if the previously outnumbered, raided and now cornered Democrats can change their fortunes and ride to victory on Swift's coat-tails.

"Perversely, it could actually put women, minorities, and workers who are vocal about their rights at a disadvantage if employers attempt to reduce risk by hiring fewer individuals likely to file suit against them", he noted.

Entertainment figures should not be "lecturing us on how to vote", Harrington added. "Her voting record in Congress appals and terrifies me", the 28-year-old said.

2016: Who is Taylor Swift voting for?

In today's day and age, you can't deny the power of a pop singer on Instagram.

"Thank God for Taylor Swift", Kamari Guthrie of Vote.org, a nonprofit organization that provides Americans with voter registration details and other information, told BuzzFeed News.

2014's "1989" was a refreshing throwback to tones, tempos, and timbres of a bygone era in pop music that lyrically remained well within Swift's wheelhouse narrative as a spurned lover and even brought that character into a new, post-teenage/early 20s realist maturation in songs like "Wildest Dreams", "New Romantics", and "Style".

Regardless of their view on her music, many people were impressed and surprised by the post, most notably - how well she broke down Blackburn's voting record.

The post has been liked over 1.6 million times.

Swift took to Instagram on Sunday to advise her fans that they should vote in this year's approaching midterm elections, a move that was largely out of character for the apolitical singer. I'm the only person to have a subscription to Nickelodeon Magazine without access to the Nickelodeon channel.

"I don't think she was the only one who wrote that post on Instagram. I'm proud to be a woman today, and every day", she wrote.

That Swift is particularly popular among younger people, who are disproportionately more likely to stay at home during midterm elections, could also prove significant.

Swift won her trial against Colorado radio personality David Mueller in August after a jury found that he had assaulted Swift by groping her bare bottom.

Democrat Senate candidate and former Tennessee Gov. Phil Bredesen is running to fill the vacancy created by retiring Republican Senator Bob Corker. She lives in Queens, NY.

The movement was sparked by the Feb 14 Florida high-school shooting that left 17 people dead.

She's likewise been vocal about gun violence. Or to a movie theatre.
