    The American public has been hoodwinked into electing some absolutely terrible human beings to the highest levels of office. But credit where credit is due: at least we’re not dumb enough to vote for Kanye West for president.

    Despite pouring in millions of dollars of his own money, Kanye West’s 2020 presidential campaign remains remarkably unpopular. A poll released by Reuters/IPSOS on October 17th has Kanye receiving just 2% of the vote nationally — which, in his defense, is 2% more than he was polling at two weeks prior.

    On a statewide level, Kanye isn’t doing much better. The Trump campaign had hoped Kanye would siphon off votes from Joe Biden in crucial swing states, but the rapper is polling at 1% in both Wisconsin and Michigan, and 0% (!) in North Carolina.

    And in a further sign of waning support for Kanye’s campaign, he received just two (!) itemized contributions during the entire month of September.

    To date, Kanye has put nearly $12 million of his own money into his campaign, according to financial disclosure forms reviewed by Ben Jacobs. Of that, $230,000 went to veteran music video producer Hype Williams to create a stylized campaign ad for Kanye.

    So in short, Kanye’s poll numbers and fundraising dollars, much like his Grammy Award, are in the toilet.
