It seems Kanye West had an unlikely supporter in the 2020 presidential race.
According to Politico, Fox News host Tucker Carlson has been telling associates he had voted for the “Birthday Party” candidate rather than the Republican incumbent, Donald Trump. Sources told the publication it’s unclear if the conservative media personality was joking about his Kanye vote, but insisted the two men had a very “real” affinity for one another.
“It’s his way of saying that he’s not just another Trumpette at Fox News like Sean Hannity,” one insider said about the alleged vote.
“He and Kanye get along,” another Carlson associate claimed. “They both regularly find themselves in the crosshairs. They’re both pro-life.”
It’s no secret that West’s 2020 presidential campaign was a multi-million dollar failure. The “Birthday Party” candidate had gained ballot access in only a dozen states and had received about 60,000 votes by the end of the election. Carlson is registered as a Republican in Florida, according to the state’s voter registration records; however, Kanye failed to get on the Sunshine State’s general ballot, meaning Carlson would’ve had to cast a write-in vote for the G.O.O.D. Music artist. Politico also pointed out that any votes for Kanye were not counted in Florida, as the candidate neglected to submit the necessary paperwork to the state’s election division.
