A four paragraph, informative summary: Despite President Biden's call for a more unified, less polarised America, the past few years have seen the country more divided than ever.
However, a recent survey by YouGov suggests a potential solution: Taylor Swift.
According to the poll, 14% of Americans believe that the pop star could "unite the country," making her the most popular potential unifier out of the list of public figures presented.
While Swift is known to stay politically neutral, her advocacy for LGBTQ+ rights, as well as her support of fellow pop star Kesha during her sexual assault case against a record producer, have made her a symbol of inclusion and empowerment for many.
This has garnered her a significant fandom from both liberals and conservatives alike.
However, some are skeptical of the notion that a celebrity - even one as popular as Swift - could bring about national unity.
"While music can bring people together, and there's no doubt that Taylor Swift has millions of fans, there's no evidence to suggest that she has any real power to affect political opinion," says Dr. Rina Shah, a political commentator.
Others argue that unity cannot come from a single individual, but rather from collective effort.
"I appreciate the desire to have someone to point to who can lead the effort to bring America together, but it needs to come from all of us," says political strategist Chuck Rocha.
"We all play a role in moving our country forward and making progress towards a more perfect union."
