Kanye West Receives 60,000 Votes In US Election 2020
Kanye West entered the US election with much fan fare and hype. However, the votes he got for the election are close to zero percentage of the total votes cast. Kanye was very hopeful of making a mark in this year’s election. However, he managed to get only 60,000 votes. These votes were spread across a dozen states from where he contested the election. As many as 160 million Americans cast their vote this year. This means Kanye got only 0.0375 percent of the total votes.
Why Did Kanye West Lose The Election So Badly
Kanye wanted to win the election but he clearly did not know how to contest election. This was clear how disorganized his campaign was. He announced his candidacy very late and missed the chance to contest in some big states. Moreover, his election strategy was very poor as he hardly did any campaigns. His first campaign in South Carolina was a total dud and he did not even manage to gain a ticket for that state. He had only a handful of states to contest his election and could not manage to campaign well even in those states.
Kanye West Had No Plan From The Start
Kanye West had no idea as to what he would do after becoming the president. He had very vague and general ideas with no roadmap as to how he would achieve those ideas. He talked a lot about abortion and talked some spiritual things. Once he said, “When I’m president, let’s also have some fun. Let’s get past all the racism conversation, let’s empower people with 40 acres and a mule, let’s give some land, that’s the plan.”
Kanye Up For 2024 Election
Kanye West is all set to aim for 2024 election. This year’s election was more like a practice session for him and he will be there from the start for 2024 election.
