SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — Taylor Swift is getting into the political fight and endorsing Tennessee Democrats on Instagram, and that’s having a real impact. 

According to Vote.org, the number of voter registrations has gone through the roof. 

Following her post, voter registrations went up by 65,000 in a single 24-hour period. 

In the Instagram post, Swift explained that she’d been reluctant to voice her political opinions in the past but due to several events in the world in the past two years, she felt the need to speak.

Trump responded by saying he now likes Swift’s music “25 percent less.”
