Taylor Swift is catching heat for endorsing Tennessee Democrats Phil Bredesen and Jim Cooper. Swift, who is usually "reluctant" to speak on politics, said in an Instagram post, "due to several events in my life and in the world in the past two years, I feel very differently about that now."
泰勒斯威夫特因支持田纳西州的民主党人菲尔·布雷德森（Phil Bredesen）和吉姆·库珀（Jim Cooper）而备受争议。霉霉通常不愿意谈论政治，但是她8号在自己的Ins上发文表示：“由于过去两年中我的生活和世界上发生的一些事，我现在有了不同的看法。“
"As much as I have in the past and would like to continue voting for women in office, I cannot support Marsha Blackburn."
She voted against equal pay for women. She voted against the Reauthorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which attempts to protect women from domestic violence, stalking, and date rape. She believes businesses have a right to refuse service to gay couples. She also believes they should not have the right to marry. These are not MY Tennessee values. I will be voting for Phil Bredesen for Senate and Jim Cooper for House of Representatives," Swift wrote.
Bredesen served as governor of Tennessee from 2003 to 2011. "I'm honored to have your support and that of so many Tennesseans who are ready to put aside the partisan shouting and get things done," he wrote.
If he ever enjoyed Taylor Swift's music, President Donald Trump now likes the pop star's tracks "about 25% less."
After being told Swift announced her opposition to Blackburn and endorsed Bredesen, Trump offered quick praise for Blackburn, who he said "is doing a very good job in Tennessee."
"I'm sure Taylor Swift has nothing -- or doesn't know anything about her (Blackurn)," Trump said. And then he added, with a laugh: "Let's say that I like Taylor's music about 25% less now, OK?"
President Donald Trump's approval rating has dropped in every state since he was inaugurated, and in three states it fell from at least 50 percent to majority disapproval, according to a new poll.
The president regularly discounts polls that report low approval ratings for him. He has also bragged about having a higher approval rating than his predecessors, including Barack Obama, and that his approval rating hits records.
It is typical for a president to experience a declining approval rating as he serves out his term. President Barack Obama saw an almost 15-point nationwide decline in his first two years in office. Obama's declining popularity also coincided with crushing losses for the Democrats in the 2010 midterms, something that Republicans are fearful of happening to them next month.
