Trump can refuse to debate Biden without Kanye there. Then, Trump shuts up and lets Biden whale on the African  American candidate.

Trump can also refuse to debate Biden but insist on debating Kanye. Biden is then denied debate time while Kanye gets tons of attention. And if anyone makes Kanye look amateur or bad, the result will be that Trump looks good.

Either way, Trump wins.

It doesn't matter if it's legit. It gives a snapshot of how Kanye's fans are reacting to this announcement, and if the reality of this clusterfark is escaping you, Kanye sold 21 million albums. If a portion of those people, plus a portion of Kim Kardashian's vapid, low-information, stupid farkin' fanbase decides to sway their vote from Biden The Old White Guy, then we're looking at some dents in Biden's numbers that may have a serious impact on the race.

This is bad. Kanye's sole function is as a spoiler, and his fans are too farking stupid to understand or care.

Dude that is a twitter troll poll. People all over the world click whatever for shiats and giggles. I'm willing to bet over 80% of them can't vote or never vote. The other 20% just click kanye because they think he will take votes away from democrats. Look at rumps percentage, seems a bit low don't ya think? Biden usually comes out ahead on twitter but not by that much.

Even in a meaningless Twitter poll, Biden crushes Trump.

depends who posts the poll. If its a faux news talking head with half a million trump bot followers then biden usually wins by a few percentage points, if it's someone that aligns left then Biden wins by a huge margin.  

While twitter is open to everyone it still has echo chambers and not everyone comes across the same content.

It's a Twitter fan club poll. It's meaningless.
Hate on Fox all you want (I do), but they don't do Twitter polls and try to pass them off as legitimate.

BlackChickWhiteAccent: Do you know what makes this stupid shiat so bad? Kimmy girl knows her husband is batshiat nutso. Kanye is off his meds, if he's taking any at all, and Ms. Kartrashian knows it. She's having fun with this! Hey, at least they're getting clicks!

Kanye's life wasn't horrible. His mom was a professor at HBCU Clark-Atlanta, and his dad was a photographer. They divorced when he was 12 or so, and you know how it is. Some boys take that shiat hard.  It can be hard to grow up without a man in the house.

But the thing he had going for him is that he is really smart. He even learned to speak Chinese! But something was wrong in his head. After his mom died, the floodgates opened. The diagnosis they gave the public was bipolar, but I have always maintained that he is schizophrenic. He completely broke from reality after Moms went on to her "long home."

Kanye West suffers from mental illness. We can hate on him all we want--him being a rapper, him hanging around with thugs, whatever preconceived notions you want to harbor about him. But he truly has issues. That's nothing to joke about, and had he been white, there would probably be some sappy biopic about his epic struggles, co-starring big boobed Jennifer Lawrence.

Kanye is a mess. We shouldn't hate on the mentally ill. This is all being condoned by Ms. Kim KarSociopath. All she sees are dollar signs. She cannot wrap her mind around the fact that money doesn't matter when it comes to mental illness, especially if your spouse can basically pay other people to ignore his symptoms.

Jesus, man, when are they gonna let him get the help he needs?

He had amazing potential. He produced some game changing bangers. His name should be heralded in the rap world for his drive and creativity. But now he's just an object of derision. He's a clown, who is letting his delusions do the talking. I feel sorry for him. If Kim ever gets tired of pulling his strings, I don't think he'd be long for this world by himself. He's in his 40s. He's dam ...

stpickrell: Let's assume he's serious and isn't going to walk this back in a few days.

The best comparison is probably to Evan McMullin who got his campaign going in early August.

The upsides?

Kanye has way more name recognition than McMullin who must have been David French's fifth or sixth choice.

He's also got way more money, so I think those along with the extra month (I assume he'd file the FEC paperwork in the next week and have a full-on signature gathering process going by the 15th at the latest), would give him a much higher potential than McMullin.

He's not getting in the debates but if he starts polling in the mid single digits Trump might use that as a Get out of Debates Free card, demanding that Kanye be given a bigger stage.

The downsides, though?

We'll see some former staffers leak testimony, possibly video, of his episodes. What we already know is sort of ... not what we'd like from a President.

He doesn't have a real agenda, although that in theory might change. He might have some room if he ran as a Bernie bro, thus getting some of the votes of people of Rose Twitter and those who want to give a middle finger to the system and don't care which finger it is. On the other hand, a lot of the latter crowd voted for Trump and weren't likely to vote for Biden who does represent the system. If he went Bernie Bro, he might pummel Howie Hawkins into further irrelevance, since the Rose Twitter crowd is mostly deciding whether to stay home or vote for Hawkins.

Another possible route might be Bernie Bro + pro life + pro gun and trying to fuse the concerns of ADOS with those of White Americans against immigrants. That's really dependent on how much Trump-Americans are racist against all Blacks or just against Blacks that deviate from social norms and/or vote Democratic.

He'd have to come up with something serious about the pandemic - something that just relies on MOAR PRAYER would keep him hanging out with Howie Hawkins.

Kanye's potential base is among lower-information voters who have a vague idea that BLM > DJT. However, I suspect pictures from Kanye's conservative period might come out. I also wonder how many of them would actually vote (I suspect many of them don't bother to vote and would need to register.)

Biden's also up by high single/low double digits, and much of the switching is among older folks (who regularly vote) who thought Trump might help the stock market and think they can live with Biden provided he's given a Republican Congress in 2022.


Pictures "might come out?" Like the dozens of pictures of Kanye in a MAGA hat and the pics of him in the White House sucking up to Two Scoops? Yeah, those are already out. Along with Kanye saying that slavery was a choice.

Exactly. Whether he actually does what is necessary to qualify to be on the ballot, as a write-in or otherwise, doesn't even matter. Every vote for him, whether 'legitimate' or wasted, is effectively a vote for 45*. Hell, at this point it wouldn't surprise me if he were to get votes even if he stood up tomorrow and said 'I was joking, please don't vote for me.' The genie is out of the bottle now.

Oh Fark. This will not really leech votes from Trump. How many black voters does he have? It could leech off D voters. Methinks that is the main plan.

I'm going to start getting into debates with my coworkers and argue that Kanye is a better conservative and better option to be President than Trump.

Let's assume he's serious and isn't going to walk this back in a few days.

The best comparison is probably to Evan McMullin who got his campaign going in early August.

The upsides?

Kanye has way more name recognition than McMullin who must have been David French's fifth or sixth choice.

He's also got way more money, so I think those along with the extra month (I assume he'd file the FEC paperwork in the next week and have a full-on signature gathering process going by the 15th at the latest), would give him a much higher potential than McMullin.

He's not getting in the debates but if he starts polling in the mid single digits Trump might use that as a Get out of Debates Free card, demanding that Kanye be given a bigger stage.

The downsides, though?

We'll see some former staffers leak testimony, possibly video, of his episodes. What we already know is sort of ... not what we'd like from a President.

He doesn't have a real agenda, although that in theory might change. He might have some room if he ran as a Bernie bro, thus getting some of the votes of people of Rose Twitter and those who want to give a middle finger to the system and don't care which finger it is. On the other hand, a lot of the latter crowd voted for Trump and weren't likely to vote for Biden who does represent the system. If he went Bernie Bro, he might pummel Howie Hawkins into further irrelevance, since the Rose Twitter crowd is mostly deciding whether to stay home or vote for Hawkins.

Another possible route might be Bernie Bro + pro life + pro gun and trying to fuse the concerns of ADOS with those of White Americans against immigrants. That's really dependent on how much Trump-Americans are racist against all Blacks or just against Blacks that deviate from social norms and/or vote Democratic.

He'd have to come up with something serious about the pandemic - something that just relies on MOAR PRAYER would keep him hanging out with Howie Hawkins.

Kanye's potential base is among lower-information voters who have a vague idea that BLM > DJT. However, I suspect pictures from Kanye's conservative period might come out. I also wonder how many of them would actually vote (I suspect many of them don't bother to vote and would need to register.)

Biden's also up by high single/low double digits, and much of the switching is among older folks (who regularly vote) who thought Trump might help the stock market and think they can live with Biden provided he's given a Republican Congress in 2022.

First of all, he says we must trust God.  That is a violation of church and state separation. So I cannot vote for him.

Secondly, Kanye is a hack.  He is actually the DJT of music.  Cobbles together a bunch of nonsense, tells everyone how great it is, and people worship him for it.  In short, he's a con man.

Thirdly, he is a farking moron.

While struggling with a crisis, President Camacho:

1.) Recognized that the problem existed.
2.) Recognized that he wasn't the smartest person in the world.
3.) Found the smartest person in the world and gave him unlimited powers to fix the problem.
4.) Threw a giant party when he fixed the problem and threw his house open to everybody.
5.) Resigned and handed over the keys of the country to the smartest person in the world.

Camacho would actually be a better president than Trump.

I want to be fair here. An erotic chatbot would be a better president than Trump.

It would definitely have a bigger vocabulary


and it would give you two scoops of ice cream instead of the other way around.

Driedsponge: andrewagill: GardenWeasel: andrewagill: He's missed the filing deadline in 6 states, losing out on 131 electoral votes. He'll also probably fail to get the signatures required in states with filing deadlines in July & August.

He doesn't need to get on all state ballots to be an issue, just swing states

He won't get on the ballot in swing states. The only swing state he might get on the ballot in time for is Arizona.

Thank you for at least a glimmer of hope in these trying times.


No one is going to vote for Kanye.  Kanye is batshiat nuts, everyone just plays along because he's famous and an ok producer.
He will pull the vote of the 3k who vote for Ron Paul and Lyndon LaRouche.

Kanye was put up to this by Trump to divide the Black vote.

And it looks like it's working, goddammit.

This is dirty politics at its worst, and it may just end up being the reason our country is completely destroyed in the not-so-distant future.

Dude that is a twitter troll poll. People all over the world click whatever for shiats and giggles. I'm willing to bet over 80% of them can't vote or never vote. The other 20% just click kanye because they think he will take votes away from democrats. Look at rumps percentage, seems a bit low don't ya think? Biden usually comes out ahead on twitter but not by that much.


Even in a meaningless Twitter poll, Biden crushes Trump.

True, but Obama specifically called him a jackass. And Kanye West is such a jackass that when Obama called him a jackass, the then-teabaggers didn't so much as raise an eyebrow in disagreement.
