POLL: Vanderbilt University Poll Shows Democrat Phil Bredesen Ahead of Rep. Marsha Blackburn 44% to 43%

Breaking years of political silence, pop star Taylor Swift expressed support for Democratic candidates in her home state of Tennessee, with Bredesen among them.

Within 24 hours after Swift’s announcement, voter registration spiked significantly.

Some believe that her endorsement of Bredesen may have had a similar effect.

Despite Blackburn leading Bredesen in other polls, she has had a hard time convincing women voters that she would represent their interests. One recent poll showed Bredesen ahead of Blackburn with women voters by 12 points.

This new boost for Bredesen is quite unexpected. It could even indicate a national trend of Republican enthusiasm – or lack thereof – now that Kavanaugh is securely on the bench. Though the outcome of the race is still anyone’s guess, the Vanderbilt poll surely has some Republicans sweating.
