Kanye West is considering running for re-election in 2024, after garnering just some 60,000 votes around his name on Tuesday.
His candidacy for the 2020 presidential election created a surprise and made people smile, but Kanye West persists and signs: the rapper now seems to be planning to run again in 2024, after having barely rallied some 60,000 votes around his name on Tuesday.
In a series of tweets, the music and fashion troublemaker filmed himself filling out his ballot in the state of Wyoming: at 43, he said he voted "for the first time" at a presidential election, and "for someone I really trust ... me".
In one of the images he posted, his name appears on the ballot visibly added by hand: Wyoming, where he has a ranch, was not among the 12 US states in which he had officially qualified for appear as an independent candidate.
As for his intention to run again in four years, he expressed it in two words in another tweet: "KANYE 2024".
At best, 0.4% of the vote
According to the tally published by the American media, Kanye West, who suffers from bipolar disorder - and whose wife, Kim Kardashian, had called in July for "compassion and empathy" - received at best 0.4% of the vote , in the very rural states of Idaho, Oklahoma and Utah.
In terms of votes, it was in Tennessee - the southern state won by Donald Trump - that he had the best score (nearly 10,200).
Kanye West, who officially sided with Donald Trump shortly after the billionaire's election in November 2016, announced his candidacy for the presidency on July 4, a national holiday.
But his candidacy immediately raised more questions about his sanity than enthusiasm.
Under the wacky label of the "Birthday Party", he had qualified to appear on the ballots of only 12 of the 50 American states, and thus left without a chance.
