Kanye West’s strange and stilted campaign run in the 2020 presidential election not only failed to deliver a victory, but also netted him exactly zero electoral votes in the process.

But there is a silver lining for all the bitter Kanye stans, out there. Recent state counts reveal that Ye netted his largest vote share from Tennessee, home to Taylor Swift.

The relationship between West and Swift has been rocky since the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards where Kanye interrupted Taylor’s acceptance speech for Best Female Video and praised Beyoncé instead. “Yo Taylor, I’m really happy for you, I’ll let you finish, but Beyoncé has one of the best videos of all time. One of the best videos of all time!” the rapper screamed while pointing at Queen B.

It’s worth noting that Kanye received at least 1,000 votes in each of the 12 states he appeared on the ballot. West received more than 61,000 votes total, as the count stands today. He currently sits fifth in the general election, well behind President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.

After making several last minute policy pitches to voters on Election Day, the artist tweeted his concession for the 2020 presidential bid and has set his sights on a 2024 run. “KANYE 2024,” he tweeted out along with a photo of himself with the electoral map in the background.

West began his precarious presidential campaign this past summer, announcing his candidacy on July 4. Yeezy missed numerous ballot deadlines in several states. His campaign did feature some wild moments which included a Joe Rogan interview, strange campaign slogan, interesting campaign ad and troubling campaign rally.
