Kanye West gets 2% votes for Presidential run
American Rapper Kanye West is off on a good start with his Presidential campaign exercise.
But he has got a lot of work to do if he needs to win this year’s American presidential elections set for this November.
Just weeks after Kanye West announced that he was running for president, he has garnered 2% of 2000 total registered votes on a poll conducted by the Redfield And Wilson Strategies consulting firm.
Leading the poll is Joe Biden with 48%, followed by the current US President Donald Trump with 40%.
Biden 48% (+8)
Jorgensen (L) 1%
Hawkins (G) 1%
When @kanyewest included in the poll:
Biden 48% (+9)
Jorgensen (L) 2%
Hawkins (G) 1% @RedfieldWilton (July 9)

Kanye West has been known as a staunch vocal supporter of President Trump.
He recently revealed in a Forbes interview he no longer supports Trump, and since he got added into the poll, it is reported that Trump lost a considerable number of voters to him.
His 4th of July announcement was met with mixed reactions – however, receiving a fair share of positive nods from followers as well as endorsements from notably celebrity wife Kim and tech giant Elon Musk from whom he is seeking advisement on his campaign.
His popularity could have gained him a significant following, and, who knows it could one day lead him straight into the White House.
