Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce Romance Sparks Wild Political Conspiracy Theories: Unraveling the Unsubstantiated Buzz

Celebrities have traditionally supported political campaigns. Candidates often use celebrity popularity to their advantage. Celebrity endorsements may affect elections, but this is unclear. It appears Swift’s influence can at least stimulate voter registration. Swift’s September Instagram post encouraging her 272 million followers to vote led to over 35,000 Vote.org registrations.
