    Kanye 2020?

    If this is legit, I think this will hurt Biden the most because it might siphon his precious black vote...

    Kanye West filed with the Federal Election Commission on Wednesday in his first official step toward running for president in November.

    The rapper filled out the first form required by the FEC to run for president – Form 1: Statement of Organization – declaring that the Kanye 2020 committee will serve as the 'Principal Campaign Committee' with West as its candidate.

    West 43, declared he will be running as a third party candidate for the BDY Party, which he says stands for the Birthday Party.

    The FEC form signals West is serious about running for president in November after announcing on July 4 that he would be seeing the White House four years earlier than he previously said.

    Oh definitely it will hurt Biden. In fact, I heard Biden said that anyone who votes for Kanye isn't really black.

    He already dropped out.

    And as Bill Palmer said from day 1, he wasn't serious about running, just using this to promote his new album.

    He already dropped out today. He missed the ballot deadline in most states anyway.

    In any case, Kanye was a yuge Drumpf fan; not sure why that'd hurt Biden more than His Orangeness......

    Both Zogby and Rasmussen are reporting a sharp drop in support for Biden among blacks. The former has support among blacks for Biden down to 77%.

    I'm guessing Biden has more blacks who don't want to vote for Trump and are off put by Biden's past and his "you ain't black" comments (and other such racially sensitive comments) that would vote Kanye as a protest vote. Trump supporters are pretty resolute in who they want to vote for.

    On a more serious note, Kanye West is bipolar and somewhat impulsive. His public pronouncement that vaccines were the mark of the beast (during a pandemic, no less) are a good reminder of why Paul said that new converts are not to be leaders in the church. Some of us may have been a little quick to elevate him when he converted. (I have no reason to doubt the sincerity of his faith, but that statement was a bit embarrassing.)

    I don't think this is reflective of reality; steadfast Trump supporters overestimate the severity of Biden's gaffes. However, like your post, mine is nothing more than an opinion.

    Would black Biden voters choose a Republican Kanye simply because he's black (and a Not Biden)? Maybe a few would, but i doubt many...

    According to the article, it seems to imply he filed after that statement was made. But I'm not sure. After all, we are trying to make sense of a basically a self-absorbed schizoid celebrity. so who knows.
