3 New Polls Show Taylor Swift’s U.S. Senate Candidate Trailing Republican

Ex-Gov. Phil Bredesen (D-TN), the Democratic nominee for U.S. Senate in Tennessee, earned yet another boost from pop superstar Taylor Swift on Tuesday, after Swift posted a picture of her and her mom in front of a Bredesen lawn sign:

Bredesen may have the support of Swift, but three new polls show he doesn’t have the support of a majority, or even a plurality, of Tennesseans.

  • NBC News has Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) up five points on Bredesen, 51-46; that’s a net improvement of seven points for Blackburn, who was down two points in NBC News’ August poll
  • Vox Populi has Blackburn up six points on Bredesen, 53-47; take out the leaners and Blackburn is up seven on Bredesen (48-41)
  • TEAM-PAC/Spry has Blackburn up eight points, 52-44

The race seems to be trending in Blackburn’s favor, no matter how vocally Swift advocates for Bredesen. Election Day may mark Bredesen’s end game in politics, and he may just wish he could go back to December 2017 and not run at all.
