14th July: Kanye West, the famous US rapper has come under the criticism of a lot of people after he announced his Presidential bid for the American Elections 2020.
According to reports, many celebrities and the public has blasted him on his sudden decision of standing up for the post of the US President.
As reported by Baaghi TV earlier, his wife Kim Kardashian is too worried about his mental health, as he has a Bipolar Disorder issue.
As per the international media, an election expert thinks that his attempt would be pretty much harmless as his chances of victory are almost zero.
Neil Sroka, Communications Director of Democracy For America, that provides assistance to people of color to get elected into office, explained to HollywoodLife why the rapper’s chances of winning are so grim.
“It’s just to say, the odds of being able to win as an Independent candidate for president are very long even under the best of circumstances, for a variety of reasons,” she said.
“The idea of trying to launch something in July of an election year is beyond absurd. That’s the long and short of it: logistically, it is very, very difficult for an Independent to run a campaign, even if they had been planning this for years,” she added.
Kanye West announced his candidacy only four months prior to the election giving him significantly less time than his opponents Donald Trump and Joe Biden. These two, on the other hand, have been putting in efforts for the past four years.
Neil told the publication that candidates are required to submit their paperwork with the Federal Elections Commission by July 13 which West has reportedly failed to do so.
Apart from that, since the rapper will be joining the race as an independent candidate, he would have to individually petition each state to add his name on the ballot.
“Even if you were the most well-known person in the world, you’d need ballot access,” Neil said.
So it might be true to say that Donald Trump need not to worry about Kanye West any more.
