Though the Iowa presidential contest had high turnout on Monday night, it wasn’t enough to surpass the reality TV star’s poll, which had almost half a million votes before it closed.
WAIT new poll. Which album title do you like best? @kanyewest— Kim Kardashian West (@KimKardashian) February 1, 2016
Republicans counted more than 182,000 caucusgoers on Monday.
Democrats had a turnout of 171,000 caucusgoers.
Just a reminder: more people voted in Kim Kardashian's twitter poll today than in the Iowa Caucuses https://t.co/EqNUQ9lwdb— Daniel Kahn (@dbkahn) February 2, 2016
Of course, the comparison between Kardashian's poll and the Iowa caucuses isn't fair.
The “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star has 39.9 million followers on Twitter, and anyone with a Twitter account is allowed to vote in the poll.
Iowa has a population of 3.1 million. Only Iowa residents are able to vote in the caucuses, and to do so, had to be willing to give up a good portion of their Monday night.
West’s album is set to be released Feb. 11. It was originally titled “Swish,” until he recently changed it to “Waves.” According to Kardashian West’s Twitter poll, “So Help Me God,” is also an option.
