Kanye West Uses Vice President Debate Video To Promote His Election Merchandise

The Birthday Party rep loaned $6.76 million to his own campaign which is currently mathematically eliminated from actually winning the presidency.

After spending weeks focusing on securing his master recordings from Universal Music Group and demanding positions on the board of corporations he is in business with, Kanye West is back to pushing his run for the White House. His latest Twitter spree is all about his presidential and financial aspirations.

It seems as if all the worldwide attention on last night’s vice presidential debate between Republican Vice President Mike Pence and Democratic Senator Kamala Harris triggered West to return to “campaigning” for President of the United States. On Wednesday night, the G.O.O.D. Music label founder posted three tweets with links to kanye2020.country.

The website sells Kanye West 2020 merchandise such as hats ($40), hoodies ($80), t-shirts ($40), and other items. West also presents his 10-part presidential platform on the site which includes promoting freedom of religion, reducing student debt, justice reform, taking care of the economy, and support for creativity.

One of West’s late-night tweets featured a clip from the Pence/Harris debate with someone pretending to place a “Vote Kanye” and a “Kanye 2020 Vision” cap on the heads of the two politicians on the television screen. While Ye will likely make money off his merch sales, his Oval Office dreams are an extreme longshot of coming true in 2020 since the Chicago native has reportedly only qualified to make the ballot in 12 states. He currently has no mathematical chance of winning the 270 electoral votes needed to become president.

Meanwhile, the Democratic nominee, former Vice President Joe Biden, is leading President Donald Trump by 9.7 points in the RealClearPolitics average of national polls. Fox News has Biden up by 10 points, CNBC has Biden up by 10, Reuters/Ipsos has Biden up by 12, Rasmussen Reports has Biden up 12, NBC has Biden up by 14, and CNN has Biden up by 16.

When it comes to the battleground states, the Biden-Harris campaign is also doing well at the moment. Biden has a 5.5 average poll lead in Wisconsin. Michigan is leaning towards Biden by 6.2 points. Pennsylvania is a 7-point lead for Biden. Florida is a 4.5-point lead for Biden. Arizona is close with Biden maintaining a 3-point margin. It is also a tight race in traditionally Republican states such as Texas, Georgia, Iowa, and Ohio.
