Singer Taylor Swift could play a key role in the 2020 presidential election, a Republican strategist explained on MSNBC on Saturday.
Swift has been public in her criticism of President Donald Trump and told Vanity Fair she is intent to “do everything I can for 2020.”
Republican strategist Evan Siegfried was asked about Swift’s activism by MSNBC anchor Alison Morris.
“At the same time, Taylor Swift did to something very good, urging people to register to vote months before the election,” he noted. “A lot of young people did that.”
“She’s interested in politics and she’s going to do everything she can — let’s not forget the election in 2016 really was won by 77,744 votes, and that’s the margin of difference in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin and Michigan,” he explained.
“If she can get 10,000, 15,000 people registered who didn’t vote in 2016 — combined with other efforts — that will help,” Siegfried said.

Columnist warns Republicans to stay away from making healthcare an issue — because they’ll get killed

Writing Tuesday ahead of the first presidential debate, Brownstein noted that Republicans have been demanding the repeal and replacement of Obamacare for more than ten years, but at no time have they propose an alternative to the law. It was the main reason that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) refused to support the repeal of the law.
