Presidential candidate Deez Nuts is a farm boy running for the elections as an independent candidate.
This candidate’s name seems a bit strange simply because it is not a real name. A farm boy named Brady Olson decided to participate in the United States elections under the fake name “Dezz Nuts”.
The boy is 15 years old and he polling at 9% against strong candidates like Clinton and Trump, in North Carolina.
The boy is ahigh school sophomore from the Graettinger Terril Ruthven Ayrshire Community School in the small town called Iowa. He is the son of a farmer and a dental assistant.
He decided to run for president and filed the documents with the Federal Election Commission under a fake name. They accepted his candidate file and thought it would be fun to put him up against strong candidates like Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump. Still, 9% of the voters opted for Dezz Nuts instead of the other candidates.
A public survey released on August 19 by the Public Policy Polling was able to prove that some people would actually vote for someone called Dezz Nuts. 6% of the respondents had a favourable opinion about this candidate, while 13% of them had an unfavourable opinion. 81% of the voters answered that they were not sure whether their opinion about this presidential candidate was a positive or negative one.
How is this possible? It’s simple. In order to become a presidential candidate in the United States, all one has to do is fill out a form that is free of charge. This explains why there are some ridiculous presidential candidates in the United States every year.
This year there are 607 United States citizens who chose to run for president, including a cat. The cat’s name is Limberbutt McCubbin and his slogan is pretty catchy: “The time is meow”.
The difference between Deez Nuts and other presidential candidates is that he seems to be quite successful with 6% of citizens having a favourable opinion about him.
According to the file submitted to the Federal Election Commission, presidential candidate Deez Nuts lives in Wallingford, Iowa, on 450th Avenue, number 2248. There was no surprise when it was discovered that there was no Deez Nuts actually living in the small town of Iowa, with a population of only 197 people.
Even though the name might seem highly uncommon, there are dozens of citizens from the United States who have legally changed their names to Deez Nuts or Deez Nutz.
