Poll: Jill Stein tied with Harambe, trailing Deez Nutz in Texas

Green Party presidential nominee Jill Stein is tied with Harambe, the gorilla killed in a Cincinnati zoo in May, in a new poll of Texas voters. 

Public Policy Polling (PPP) released the survey on Tuesday, which showed only 2 percent of voters would vote for Stein — the same percentage that support Harambe, who was shot at the Cincinnati zoo after a 3-year-old boy fell into his enclosure.

This is the second time PPP has polled support for the dead gorilla, who has lost support over the last few weeks. At the end of July, PPP tweeted the results of a poll that had Stein at 2 percent support and Harambe at 5 percent. 

Tuesday’s poll also has Stein trailing Deez Nuts, the fictional politician, who has the support of 3 percent of voters. 

Deez Nuts, who filed with the Federal Election Commission to run for president in 2016, is 15-year-old Iowan Brady Olson.
