Is he even on any State ballot yet?
Where Kanye West is and isn’t on the ballot for the 2020 election
By the first week in August, West had already forfeited 225 Electoral College votes due to missed deadlines or problems with his filing petitions.
This is pretty much throwing sand in the gears.......
If Trump’s team supports him.
And it sure looks like they are.
Trumps lawyer filed his petition for getting on the ballot in Wl. Most states, like WI, specifically forbid an independent candidate to run if they are being supported by an opposing political party.
its a free country at the moment, Kanye can run and people who vote for him have the right an are not ----ing idiots
Not one bit. West so far will be on the ballot in just 4 states, Arkansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, Vermont. Arkansas and Oklahoma are safe Trump sates, Colorado and Vermont safe Biden states. This is much ado about nothing.
West has missed the deadline for the following states and won't appear on their ballots, (23 states + the District of Columbia): 308 electoral votes – Alaska, California, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Florida, Hawaii, Indiana, Kansas, Massachusetts, Maryland, Michigan, Maine, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Nebraska, New Mexico, Nevada, New York, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, South Dakota, Texas, Washington.
What I find interesting is the petitions of signatures in Illinois, well over half were declared invalid to keep West off the ballot there. Just another example of the monopoly the two major parties have on our electoral system and by hook or crook, they're bound and determine to keep that monopoly. They'll go to any length to keep independents and third party candidates off their ballots. They don't want the American people to have any other choice except for them. Yet it seems this bothers no one. Well, if we're satisfied with just two choices, so be it. But the problem is a majority of Americans aren't. But don't have the power to change the system since Republicans and Democrats write our election laws and they do so as a mutual protection act. If there is one thing both major parties agree on, it's no viable third party will ever rise. They want you limited to two choices and that is exactly what you get.
Majority in U.S. Still Say a Third Party Is Needed
