Well, it looks like Donald Trump has a new rival for the votes of North Carolinians.
Public Policy Polling has discovered some rising approval numbers for a new Independent candidate — Deez Nuts of Wallingford, Iowa.
Finally another declared independent candidate, Deez Nuts, polls at 9% in North Carolina to go along with his 8% in Minnesota and 7% in Iowa in our recent polling. Trump leads Clinton 40/38 when he's in the mix.
This caught the eye of the campaign media and the high numbers, which are above Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee and Scott Walker for the state, have only grown the attention towards his campaign.
No, we were not hacked. 'Deez Nuts' is the legal name of the candidate and he is polling at 9 percent in NC: http://t.co/HnGP0y6oOO— ABC11 EyewitnessNews (@ABC11_WTVD) August 19, 2015
But it doesn't end there.
Deez Nuts, who is apparently a 15-year-old sophomore in high school named Brady Olson has actually set up a campaign website for himself, which includes a detailed platform.
Surprisingly, the platform's stances seem sincere and well-considered. Deez Nuts has a more conservative view of immigration reform although he believe in choice as far as abortion rights.
He also lays out a surprisingly detailed stance on territorial voting rights:
I support giving citizens in our American territories voting rights. I also support giving American Samoan citizens automatic US citizenship. I would give Puerto Rico 3 electoral votes since Puerto Rico is bigger than many states. Guam, the US Virgin Islands, and the Northern Marianas all get 2 since they are smaller, but still incorporated territories. Finally, American Samoa would only get 1 since it is still considered an "unincorporated" territory. This would bring the total of electoral votes from 538 to 548.
We all know who should be the newcomer's campaign manager.
Would you vote for him?
