Watch Martin O'Malley delight The View with a cover of Taylor Swift's 'Bad Blood'

Former Maryland governor and Democratic presidential candidate Martin O'Malley may not be doing so hot in the polls, but if his latest appearance on The View is any indication, he may be winning over women who watch daytime television. Referencing the fact that Katy Perry, noted Taylor Swift frenemy and rumored subject of Swift's song "Bad Blood," will be performing at an Iowa benefit for O'Malley's opponent Hillary Clinton, O'Malley decided to publicly join Team Taylor, whipping out his guitar to serenade The View with the song's chorus.

O'Malley can serviceably carry a tune, and while moms across America are likely swooning, we're willing to bet O'Malley's kids are soooo embarassed right now. Watch below. Samantha Rollins
