After 2004, research studying the effect of celebrity politics increased dramatically. Celebrity endorsement of a candidate can lead to an increase in voter turnout by the uninformed masses (Veer 2010, Frizzell 2011). Because this portion of the public is not aware of the nitty-gritty of politics, chances are that they will believe celebrities on almost anything. Celebrity speakers at the Democratic National Conference in 2004 increased voter turnout due to the media attention they gained (Payne 2007). A similar thing can be seen with celebrity symbolism. Bill Clinton and his saxophone, Barack Obama dancing on Ellen, and Barack Obama’s mic drop at his final State of the Union address are memorable symbols of these presidents (Street 2012). To the uninformed masses, primarily the younger generation with unfiltered access to social media, these events have become memes and internet trends. For a comprehensive modern example, Obama’s passing endorsement of K-Pop group SHINee, various comedic images released over his two terms, and his “dad humor” created a buffer to essentially shield some of his more negative politics from a large generation of young influencers, thus increasing his approval ratings from the new generations and recent social trends surrounding the 2016
In this address Clinton uses a combination of all three to try to convince people of her being the right candidate for the job. Clinton’s rhetoric depends largely on the fact of her being relatable in comparison to the millionaire Trump who makes up the much envied American and criticized elite.

The democratic candidate Hilary Clinton announce her participation in the 2016 presidential campaign on April 15, 2015, via a YouTube video. Ever since she’s been appealing to her audience in ways that only she can. In the democratic party, her main opponent was Vermont senator, Bernie Sanders. She was able to overpass Bernie Sanders and is now head to head with Republican candidate, Donald Trump.

The article elaborates on the mood when Mike Pence attended a showing of “Hamilton” and was booed by the audience and then given a speech by the audience of the musical which wants to inspire Pence to “protect our American values, and work on behalf of all of us” because since they represent the “diverse America”, they’re anxious that the new Vice President and the President-elect won’t protect them and their rights. While many, including Pence, didn’t take offense to the speech, The Blaze seems to think that the speech was disrespectful. The article goes on to explain the mood when Hillary Clinton visited the cast of “Hamilton”. A fundraiser held last month by the creator of the musical, Lin-Manuel Miranda, was filled with celebrities, including Hillary Clinton, someone who is obviously associated with the Democratic party. The mood of this encounter seemed to have been more “open” and “warm” than the one with Pence. The article seems to have a problem with the fact that a diverse cast of a musical has a problem with the offensive ideals of the future leaders of the United
Hillary Clinton’s outspoken feminist attitude has gained her a significant amount of public support. She’s publicly backed Planned Parenthood and has been endorsed by NARAL, a pro-choice Super PAC. Hillary has strongly advocated for abortion rights and has expressed an unwavering passion for women’s rights as a whole. And she’s not alone in her views.
In Feb., Ted Cruz released a rap song called “It Feels Good to be a Clinton” attacking Hillary Clinton, and while releasing advertisements against opponents is not new, the manner in which he parodies Clinton is disrespectful as well as substanceless. Democratic candidates can also be observed using bandwagoning to promote themselves as well. Democratic front-runner Hillary Clinton utilizes trends and popular celebrities to promote herself, for example Caitlyn Jenner, who became a very publicized and controversial figure due to her transition. Clinton’s appearance on “I am Cait” remained superficial as they failed to discuss any politics, other than a few comments about transgender rights. On the other hand, Bernie Sanders and Trump both efficiently use Twitter to bash other candidates. The tactlessness of the candidates raises concerns about their ability to maintain diplomacy as
Press Tour in Pasadena, Calif.” Rancic was so happy to share this to her public in an interview, how she followed her dreams“I was chasing a dream,” she explained of her decision to leave home, just five days after graduating from AU. “And I encourage anyone to do that. I didn’t know a soul in LA but it was the best decision I ever made.”Once on the west coast, it still took a long time before she landed at E! – and not for lack of trying.“I worked as a hostess, as an assistant, I stuffed envelopes.I mean I did it all,” she said. “But my big job was in the Mailroom at a talent agency.(Brown,2011).
Hillary Clinton target the educated white men and women, and the so-called Obama coalition. But she neglected the white working class, and the uneducated white men and women. In the article called, Clinton’s challenge: Rebuilding Obama’s winning coalition, by Stephen Collinson, she said “I am running for young people like so many of you here who dream of changing our world for the better”. She is talking to the Obama coalition group, that voted for President Obama during his election, 2008 and 2012. Clinton was hoping they would turn out for her, like what they did to President Obama. These Obama coalition group are the young college educated voters, African- Americans voters, LGBT voters, and minority voters. Clinton was relying on them to
Lindsay Lohan has had her fair share of ups and downs these past few years and most of them have not been very positive in her light. While it is not strange to see celebrities endorsing a presidential candidate in the world of politics, things can often go wrong.
The growing connection between politics and Hollywood has happened for a number of reasons, in a somewhat cyclical fashion. Politicians need Hollywood stars to support their campaigns because celebrities are useful in fundraising attempts and recognition. They have the advantages of fame, wealth, and can easily command press attention. In return, celebrities endorse candidates whose policies are beneficial to their industry. For example, while Clinton was in office he argued for “industry self-regulation and a television rating system, as opposed to formal government regulation” (Ormand and West 38). For this and other reasons, Hollywood stars donated large sums of money to Democratic candidates in return. In 2000, Hollywood contributed $20 million to Democrats as opposed to the $13 million that was contributed to the less Hollywood-friendly Republican party (Ormand and West 40).
Also as Trump has done coming from far behind she is gathering a following that is starting to make believers out of Democrat voters who were at first not willing to even look let alone listen to a
Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump each had a long list of musically inclined celebrities. Trump had endorsements from the likes of Kid Rock and Kanye West, while Clinton had endorsements from Bruce Springsteen and Alicia Keys. Each candidate has endorsements from celebrities that people admire as well as support their own morals and values. For example, Kid Rock has been a publicly outspoken conservative Republican, so it would make sense that Donald Trump would seek his endorsement because Kid Rock's fans are generally people who would support Trump. Bruce Springsteen, on the other hand, has been a very publicly outspoken liberal Democrat whose songs reflect his values, which is why Clinton sought his endorsement because many of his fans are blue collar Democrats. Regardless of whom each candidate received endorsements from, both campaigns found a way to communicate of their values to their audience
