Kanye West may be "Famous" by Hollywood standards, but when it comes to American voters, he's not exactly a "Runaway" fave. After the rapper declared earlier this month that he'll run for president in 2020, a new poll finds that only 2 percent of registered U.S. voters say they'd cast ballots for Yeezy. Meanwhile, it seems West's would-be campaign would only damage re-election odds for his onetime pal, President Trump. The poll shows Biden at 48 percent whether or not Kanye is also on the ballot; however, Trump drops a point from 40 to 39 percent once he's up against 'Ye. Hey, Kanye, look on the bright side: It's not too late to ask Trump to make you his new veep; you could even call yourself 'Yeep!
