New Poll: Donald Trump Beats Kanye West For President
September 1, 2015

This is no joke, folks. Groups are polling Kanye West's chances at the presidency after he announced that he's going to run for the Oval office in 2020 at the VMA's Sunday night.

Kanye West says he's planning to run for president in 2020.In a candid and at times heartfelt acceptance speech at Sunday night's MTV Video Music Awards, the rapper concluded his remarks by announcing a presidential bid for the election five years from now.

I'm not sure why anybody would take seriously his supposed presidential aspirations at this time, but as Digby says, America has jumped the shark.

Donald Trump would defeat Kanye West in a hypothetical presidential match-up, according to a survey released Monday.

Market research firm Echelon Insights said Trump leads in every age demographic, except for the 25-34 bracket, which voted in favor of West by an 8-point margin.

The poll of 500 adults using Google Consumer Surveys has the real estate tycoon drawing 38 percent support and the hip-hop mogul finishing with 21 percent support; 41 percent remain undecided:

There aren't too many people in an age bracket over 50 that knows who Kanye is except that he's married to Kim Kardashian so this is totally insane.

Trumpmentum is alive and well. I wonder how The Donald would poll against Derek Jeter?

Can you help us out?
