Kanye West accepts defeat in US Presidential Election

Kanye West, popular record producer, rapper, and presidential candidate under the American Independent Party conceded defeat in the ongoing US election in a tweet on Wednesday, November 4, 2020.

Kanye obtained more than a thousand votes in all of the 12 contests he was in, according to preliminary tallies by news media outlets.

He got nearly 6,000 votes in Colorado, a state that went to Biden who took 55.8 per cent of the total tallied votes. In Vermont, another state that went to Biden, West got more than 1,200 votes, according to the tally.

However, he proved most popular in Tennessee, where 10,195 voters came out to cast their votes in support of him. Unfortunately, Kanye didn’t exceed more than 0.4% of any state’s vote.

The rapper had announced earlier Tuesday via his Twitter handle that he voted for himself, the first time he had cast a ballot in a US presidential election.

Kanye hinted a possible second attempt at the presidential election in 2024.

“KANYE 2024,” his tweet read.
