Media reported that kanye West, a well-known musician, spent $9 million to campaign for the U.S. presidential election and eventually won about 60,000 votes in 12 states. If you spread the cost equally, it’s about $150 per ballot. Of course, this does not include non-recommended candidates (write-in votes) and the votes they receive as California’s vice presidential candidates.
In addition, according to a report submitted to the Federal Election Commission, he spent about $10 million on the campaign, received about $1 million in donations, and had a balance of about $1.1 million.
Among the 12 states that voted (Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah, and Vermont), he performed best in Tennessee (winning more than 10,000 votes).
As for the California district, he appeared on the ballot with Roque De La Fuente, the candidate of the Independent Party of the United States. The two won 0.3 percent of the vote in California, a total of more than 34,000 votes.
On Twitter, he shared a small video of himself voting in Wyoming, claiming it was the first time in his life that he had exercised his voting rights. Finally, despite his poor performance, he expressed his desire on Wednesday to stay in the race for the next term.
