Kanye West from Keeping Up with the Kardashians has political ambitions, but can’t get the votes to make those big dreams come true.
Election Day is finally over and Kanye West from Keeping Up With The Kardashians has received the results from his bid for the presidency. The rapper and fashion mogul received some of the lowest voter numbers among the list of presidential hopefuls.
Many were surprised when Kanye announced his presidential campaign back in July. While he didn’t do as much physical campaigning as other candidates, he held one rally in South Carolina in August, appeared in a few press interviews, and sent out countless tweets promoting his “2020 Vision.” However, after he missed the filing date for a number of states, Kanye West was only allowed to be a write-in candidate within 12 states. In California, he was listed as a vice-presidential candidate for the Independent Party, but according to reports, this was done without his consent. The Yeezy founder had been asking voters to write him in as president on their ballots.

According to Deadline, Kanye received around 60,000 votes in total across 12 USA states. While the rapper did rank number four in some state races, the outlet reports that his percentage of the vote was never past .04%. Early on Election Day, Kanye sent out a tweet letting his followers know that it was his very first time voting and that he was voting for himself. “God is so good,” he said with a smiley face emoji. God is so good 😊 Today I am voting for the first time in my life for the President of the United States, and it’s for someone I truly trust…me. 🇺🇸 🕊

“Today I am voting for the first time in my life for the President of the United States, and it’s for someone I truly trust…me.” On Tuesday night, Kanye sent out another tweet conceding his bid and announcing his 2024 run. “Welp, Kanye 2024,” he captioned a tweet with a photo of him standing in front of a US election map. On November 4, he tweeted “Kanye 2024”, as seen below:
