A new poll from Vanderbilt University regarding the Tennessee Senate race indicates that Republican enthusiasm following the hard-fought confirmation of Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court may have been short-lived.

Democratic candidate and former governor Phil Bredesen has just a one percent lead over Republican candidate Rep. Marsha Blackburn, with the candidates at 44 and 43 percent to replace retiring Republican Senator Bob Corker. Following the Kavanaugh hearings, Blackburn saw an eight point spike in support, while Bredesen lost some Democratic backing for saying he would have voted to confirm Kavanaugh.

Far-right commentator Tomi Lahren is known for having unpopular and often baseless opinions. Whether she's comparing the Black Lives Matter movement to the Ku Klux Klan or mocking survivors of school shootings, Lahren's views aren't particularly popular.

Taylor Swift has a reputation––no pun intended––for being notoriously apolitical, much to the chagrin of many fans and commentators over the years who have urged her to use her massive platform to effect positive change. She's now broken her silence, and it's to urge people to vote in the midterm elections, which are 28 days away.

"In the past I’ve been reluctant to publicly voice my political opinions, but due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now," Swift wrote, adding that she "always have and always will cast my vote based on which candidate will protect and fight for the human rights I believe we all deserve in this country."
