Taylor Swift Conspiracy Theory Is Embraced by Nearly 1 in 5 Americans, Poll Finds

Eighteen percent believe there is “a covert government effort” for the pop icon to help President Biden win re-election, according to a Monmouth University survey.

The Super Bowl may be over, but right-wing conspiracy theories about Taylor Swift and the 2024 presidential election are still raging.

 

Eighteen percent of Americans believe there is “a covert government effort” for Ms. Swift, the global pop icon, to help President Biden win re-election, according to a poll released Wednesday by Monmouth University.

The poll found that a vast majority of people — 71 percent — who believe the government is using Ms. Swift to help Mr. Biden were Republicans, and 83 percent of those who embraced the baseless theory said they were likely to vote for former President Donald J. Trump in November.

There was overlap with 2020 election denial: 73 percent of respondents who subscribed to the Swift conspiracy theory also said they believed the lie, perpetuated by Mr. Trump and others, that the last presidential contest was fraudulent.
