I’m not sure what to say about Deez Nuts, a 2016 Presidential “candidate” that is currently polling better than the majority of the Republican primary field in multiple states.
I mean, it’s funny. Don’t say it’s not. We’re all 12 and this is funny. On the other hand, I’m sad. I’m so sad and I’m scared.
Anyway, Deez Nuts is really a 15-year-old boy from Iowa. Last month, Brady Olson filed with the Federal Elections Commission as an Independent, and the rest is history. Some pollsters included Deez Nuts in their polls, and he racked up 9% support in North Carolina, 8% in Minnesota, and 7% in his home state.
Now, he’s more searched-about than Hillary Clinton:

If you’re wondering what Deez Nuts stands for, here’s his platform. He believes in deportation of illegal immigrants, full rights for abortion and same sex marriage, and the Iran Nuclear Deal.
