Kanye West’s race to be president looks to be over

KANYE WEST looks set to bow out of the race to be US president, after polls showed he had the backing of just two per cent of voters.

It comes just 12 days after the rapper (pictured) announced his bid to oust Donald Trump from the White House.

The 43-year-old’s campaign hit snags from the get-go when he missed deadlines to run as an independent candidate in several states.

That was further compounded when an attempt to get his name on the ballot in Florida reportedly failed yesterday.

Hinting that West, also known as Ye, would now abandon his presidential ambitions, campaign manager Steve Kramer told New York Magazine’s Intelligencer: ‘He’s out.’

Keeping details of his reported political retirement sketchy, he said he would let people ‘know what I know once I get all our stuff cancelled’.

His comments came after a poll of 2,000 voters for Redfield & Wilton Strategies projected West would win just one in 50 votes.

The dad-of-four, who is wed to reality TV star Kim Kardashian, 39, said he was an ‘anti-vaccine, anti-abortion’ candidate who wanted to bring religious education back into schools.

He also explained he would build an America based on the ‘framework’ of fictional African kingdom Wakanda, from the Marvel film Black Panther.
