Kanye West Announces Hes Running For President
forbes.com ^ | Jul 4, 2020

Kanye West is an artist, producer, record label executive and fashion designer, but that’s apparently not enough for the multi-hyphenate. Now, the hip-hop powerhouse is looking to add another job to his ever-expanding resume: politician.

The rapper took to Twitter on America’s birthday (July 4) to officially announce he is running for the highest office in the land. The superstar began his message by writing, “We must now realize the promise of America by trusting God, unifying our vision and building our future,” and he quickly got straight to the point by stating quite plainly, “I am running for president of the United States!” He then added the hashtag #2020VISION, which may be something he continues to use moving forward.

Anything that takes votes from the Democratic base is a good thing.

How many states will Biden win if Kanye takes all the black vote from him?

I doubt he will be able to get on the ballot in many states, but we will see I guess.

“”Anything that takes votes from the Democratic base is a good thing.””

Sadly, He will take them from the conservative base

Forget the thought does he want a Biden VP spot. Never happening. The real question is which candidate would his entry help.

It would make sense for him to run third party if it pulled more votes from Biden than Trump. This would be consistent with how he has presented himself lately.

If his entry would help Biden, then this would be for personal gain only in self promotion which can be financially beneficial.

I wonder if any polling has been done on how he would affect voting in the inner cities.

Just yesterday I saw someone on here or in an article say he could run in 2024. Off by only 4 years!

Maybe the black youth will go his way. His campaign slogan will be “Vote West, young men.”

Here are my thoughts on this, on the effect it will have. First, I predict that Kanye West will stay with this despite all the anger and opposition he will get from the left. He actually seems to thrive on ticking people off and he’s pretty stubborn. As to the effects of his candidacy, I predict he will siphon away far more votes from Biden than Trump. Now, the good news for Trump is that it will be much harder for Biden to win, even if Kanye gets just 1 to 2 percent of the vote (which is about what I predict). The bad news for Trump is that overall black turnout will be slightly higher so that down-ballot representatives and senators will get a slight boost for democrats. The democrats will probably pick up one or two extra house seats that they would have otherwise lost, and maybe even one senator.

I don't see that logic, seems to me fewer votes for Trump, if a black was going to vote for Trump they sure as hell wont vote for the Dim...

If Kanye is truly serious, his independent campaign will stop Biden’s campaign in its tracks. He will definitely peel off more black voters from Biden than from Potus. That’s why the Dems will go after Kanye and try to destroy him to prevent this from happening. I wonder if he is prepared to handle this?

Twitter account (political observer @best_american) “Best American” says:

“It’s important to note that #Kanye has from early August until September to file to run for POTUS as an independent in Pennsylvania, Florida. Ohio, Wisconsin and Minnesota.”
