Redfield & Wilton Poll: Kanye Gets 2 Percent of Presidential Vote

Kanye West announced he'd be running for president of the United States less than two weeks ago, but an insider has since said the rapper has dropped out of the race. Elon Musk immediately threw his support behind Kanye when he announced his political plans.

Ye's dismal numbers revealed by trusted consulting firm Redfield & Wilton Strategies only bolster what critics have claimed of his aspirations; they're only a ploy to pull numbers of minority voters away from Biden, ultimately helping Trump. Earlier results showed Democratic candidate Joe Biden coming out on top scoring 48% of the vote (an increase of 8%), with incumbent President, Donald Trump, coming in at second place with 40%.

Musk had initially supported Kanye, as the "Gold Digger" singer announced he would be running in the 2020 election, but later seemed to reconsider.

The poll was taken July 9, just days after West said he was launching his campaign. He hasn't responded to the low numbers, busily gathering the over 100, 000 signatures needed to be included in Florida's ballot by tomorrow, July 15.

Steve Kramer, who was helping Kanye with his campaign, said: "He's out".

France and Britain are set to require people to wear facemasks in public as coronavirus cases continue to increase in Europe. Many economists think unemployment could more than double to over 3 million this year, levels last seen in the 1980s.


Referring to the rapper's wide-ranging interview with Forbes, the 49-year-old Tesla boss told Page Six: "Kanye explained afterward some of the reasoning behind why he said what he said".

Chance The Rapper's Twitter fingers made him a No. 1 trending topic this morning. Music rapper has dropped out of the presidential race. "I'll let you know what I know once I get all our stuff canceled".

"They got a lot of people who they've got both on their volunteer side and their contracted side", Kramer said, adding that "we had overwhelming support to get him on the ballot".

"I have nothing good or bad to say about Kanye", he told Jacobs after the operation ended. "Everyone has their personal decision about why they make decisions".
