Global pop music superstar Taylor Swift is at the center of a conspiracy theory circulating on conservative social media platforms.

The theory suggests that the NFL is manipulating games to ensure Swift’s boyfriend’s team, the Kansas City Chiefs, win the Super Bowl, aligning with a potential endorsement of President Joe Biden by Swift.

Swift’s popularity has drawn attention from political circles, with the Biden campaign reportedly interested in her endorsement. Swift has not yet declared her support for any candidate in the 2024 election cycle, but she did endorse Biden in 2020.

The conspiracy theory has been fueled by comments from conservative figures such as former GOP presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy and far-right influencer Laura Loomer.

“The Democrats’ Taylor Swift election interference psyop is happening in the open,” claimed Loomer. “It’s not a coincidence that current and former Biden admin officials are propping up Taylor Swift and Travis Kelce. They are going to use Taylor Swift as the poster child for their pro-abortion [get out the vote] Campaign.”

Conservative activist Jack Lombardi posted on social media that he has “never been more convinced that the Super Bowl is rigged.”

Can Swift Swing an Election?

A recent Redfield and Wilton Strategies/Newsweek poll found that 18% of 1,500 respondents said they’re “more likely” or “significantly more likely” to vote for a candidate endorsed by Swift.

Seventeen percent said they would be less likely to vote for a Swift-backed candidate, while 55% would be neither more nor less likely to do so.

“She’s influenced popular culture, sports, the economics of entire regions of the U.S.,” communications consultant James Haggerty told Newsweek. “So why not politics and elections?”
