KANYE West's election dreams have been shattered after he received just 50,000 votes across 12 states following his whirlwind campaign to be president.

The rapper polled over 1,000 votes in each of the states where he appeared on the ballot paper – but it wasn't enough to call a victory, according to preliminary tallies.

According to The Associated Press, West got nearly 6,000 votes in Colorado – which Biden then proceeded to win.

In Vermont, another state that went to Biden, Kanye got more than 1,200 votes.

West preliminarily polled 3,979 votes in Arkansas, 2,309 votes in Idaho, and 3179 votes in Iowa.

In both Kentucky and Minnesota, the star got over 6,000 votes – while he polled 4,837 in Louisiana, 3009 in Mississippi, 5,587 in Oklahoma, and 4,053 in Utah.

But the state where Kanye got the most votes was Tennessee – with 10,188 voters putting their trust in the rapper to be president, according to the tallies.

With just 57,396 votes across the 12 states – Kanye's dreams of presidency this year have been dashed.

He announced yesterday that he voted for himself, in his first time participating and voting in a US presidential election.

The rapper tweeted: “God is so good . . .  Today I am voting for the first time in my life for the President of the United States, and it’s for someone I truly trust…me."

Meanwhile, Kanye West has already set his sights on the 2024 presidential race after his Oval Office hopes turned to dust on election night.


After showing off his ballot in a bizarre election day rant earlier, Kanye took to Twitter again on Election Night alluding to the fact he would run again in four years.

He captioned an image of him silhouetted against a map of the USA with the words "WELP KANYE 2024."

The controversial star tweeted more of his thoughts as Donald Trump and Joe Biden battle it out in key states.

But Kanye's campaign has been far from smooth sailing.

When he stopped in North Charleston, South Carolina, for his first campaign event in July, the rapper broke down in tears.

The father-of-four, 43, who was wearing a bulletproof vest, told the crowd that he and his wife Kim Kardashian almost aborted their first child, North.

His meltdown and 'bipolar episode' during the campaign made the Kardashian family "seriously concerned and upset."

Afterwards, he tweeted that he's been trying to divorce the Keeping Up With the Kardashians star for two years.

Last month, Kanye West was filmed jumping for joy saying "get the West Wing ready," thinking he had been ranked third place in Kentucky – but it was only a test poll.

The rapper tweeted a video of himself smiling and whooping with the caption "This is how I felt when I saw that Kentucky poll result," just to later find out the results were incorrect.

West is also said to be building a dome in Atlanta which he plans to not only turn into a church, but make it the base of his 2024 presidential campaign.
