Professor predicts Kanye West could tap into ‘protest vote’ if he follows through with White House bid

Flipboard: Professor predicts Kanye West could tap into 'protest ...

Rapper Kanye West could receive a sizable “protest vote” if he goes forward with his quixotic presidential campaign, University of Maryland African-American Studies Professor Jason Nichols told “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Friday.

“I don’t think there’s any chance he’s going to win but I think people need to understand the power of a protest vote,” Nichols told host Lisa Boothe. “There are many people who are completely dissatisfied with the direction the country is going under Donald Trump and there are people who don’t like Joe Biden or don’t think that he’s coherent or competent, or whatever it is that’s the narrative, and they’re looking for someone who’s another option.”

Nichols told guest host Lisa Boothe that West’s impact could be comparable to Jill Stein, the 2016 Green Party nominee who received more than 1.4 million votes in the general election.
