• Poll Has ‘Deez Nuts’ Coming in Just Behind Trump and Who?

    An independent candidate going by the name “Deez Nuts” is currently running in third place behind Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in North Carolina, according to the latest poll out from the liberal company Public Policy Polling (PPP).

    The North Carolina-based PPP asked voters who they were supporting for president in 2016, and found that 9 percent of the people in North Carolina, 8 percent in Minnesota, and 7 percent, of the people in Iowa are throwing their support behind “Deez Nuts.”

    The good new is that “Deez Nuts” is actually the brainchild of a 15-year-old Iowa boy named Brady Olson. According to the Daily Beast, Olson managed to submit the requisite paperwork with the Federal Election Commission allowing him to run for office. That’s how his named registered as a candidate which lead to the hilarious reporting in the video above.

    The bad news is that “Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion of Deez Nuts?” PPP asked voters. (In North Carolina, 6 percent of people in North Carolina said they “had a favorable view, 13% had an unfavorable view, and 81% were unsure.”)

    North Carolina is a swing state that the GOP will need to win in next year’s election. Considering these poll numbers, I’m really starting to believe that it doesn’t matter who wins. We are all screwed either way.
