The artist posted a short video on Monday in which she appears with a mask bearing the names of Joe Biden and his vice-presidential candidate, Kamala Harris, while presenting the famous electoral sticker: “I voted”, reports EFE, quoted by Agerpres.
“Come thru, Texas! #VOTE “, Beyoncé wrote in a message on her Instagram account, where she has 155 million fans.
Beyoncé’s gesture, one of the world’s most influential figures in popular culture, can be seen as an additional impetus in the Democrats’ final offensive to reclaim Texas, a traditional Republican state.
The last Democratic candidate to win this southern US state was former President Jimmy Carter, almost half a century ago.
The latest poll conducted by Real Clear Politics gives Donald Trump as the virtual winner, at a difference of 2.3 points, so that the loss of this state would be a lethal blow for the current president.
For Texas Democrats, the support announced by Beyoncé, born in Houston in 1981, has become an important landmark on the last straight line of the campaign.
Beyoncé is not the only pop star to express her support for Democrats on the eve of the ballot box meeting. Lady Gaga took the stage on Monday to attend Biden’s latest campaign rally in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
