Kanye West runs for president

Kanye West runs for president in the 2020 election. He announced his plans to run for president on Twitter on July 4th, 2020. Some people speculate that this was a campaign strategy to take voters away from Joe Biden. The rapper picked up around sixty thousand votes in the twelve states he appeared on the ballots. 

In Colorado, he picked up around six thousand voters. In Tennessee, he racked up the most votes where a little over ten thousand people voted for him. The twelve states where Kanye West appeared on the ballot are Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont.

Although he didn’t have a chance to win he still gave it a shot. Most Americans are voting for Joe Biden or Donald Trump in the 2020 election. I wouldn’t be surprised if he tries in 2024.
