WASHINGTON (TIP): Donald Trump may be grabbing headlines in the run up to the presidential polls, but an independent candidate is giving him and Hillary Clinton stiff competition, and it turns out it is a 15-year-old from Iowa.
Deez Nuts, an independent candidate from Iowa, filed to run for the President of the United States with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) last month. According to a Public Policy Polling survey released on Wednesday, Nuts had won 9% of the vote as an independent in North Carolina on top of recent results of 8% in Minnesota and 7% in Iowa from previous polls.
The results made him what experts confirmed as the most successful independent candidate for president in two decades. Sadly, Deez Nuts does not appear to exist. But Brady Olson, 15, does. It was Olson who filed to run for the US president with the FEC on July 26 as Deez Nuts.
“Anybody can fill out a Form 2,” FEC deputy press officer Christian Hilland has said.
