At the VMAs this year, Kanye West announced to the world that  he is running for President of the United States in 2020. Though to nobody’s surprise, his poll numbers aren’t very high. There was a poll taken on YouGov that asked people about Kanye running for President.

  • 65% of people said that they would not like to see him even run for president.
  • 20% said that they wouldn’t vote for him, but would like to see him run.
  •  Only 6% said that they would consider voting for him.
  • The other 20% were unsure.

People were also asked about their opinion of Kanye West in general.

  • 4% said they were very favorable
  • 9% said somewhat favorable
  • 19% said somewhat unfavorable
  • 50% said unfavorable
  • and the remaining 18% were unsure.

That alone should tell you that his chances are slim. People also tried to bring candidate Donald Trump into the debate, asking who people think would make a better president, Donald Trump or Kanye West.

  • 41% said Donald Trump
  • Kanye West only received a small 8%
  • 3% said they were unsure
  • 48% said neither one.

Some of you might be thinking, “this is all just a joke though, Kanye can’t really be running for president,” but a Maryland college student actually decided to file paperwork with the Federal Election Commission to set up a political action committee called Ready for Kanye. They have stated “[the PAC] is not a joke” This means that the American people are preparing for Kanye to run for president. It would probably be best to prepare for him losing the election.
