Celebrities endorsing candidates has been going on since the 1920s, and as of last week Taylor Swift was responsible for 230,000 people registering to vote in 48 hours. When Taylor shared a decisive and strong Instagram backing Democratic candidates in her home state of Tennessee, her 112 million followers responded by registering to vote. Will Taylors backing actually have an impact? The results are mixed, but in 2008 during the presidential election Oprah is credited with gaining candidate Obama 1 million votes.
