New Delhi, October 14: Rapper Kanye West on Tuesday claimed he was ahead of US President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden in Kentucky, where polls opened today for early voting. Kanye West uploaded a video on his Twitter handle showing the results of the vote on his phone. “GET THE WEST WING READY”, the 43-year-old rapper tweeted, referring to the part of the White House, where the US President sits. 

The polling data shown by West, however, was not genuine. LEX 18 News, whose link was shared by West, issued a clarification that the results posted by the musician were not valid and were simply “part of a test”. “Someone discovered a cached web link that we used during June’s primary election to post Associated Press election results. The old link was still populating current AP data and showed test results, which is part of the preparation the AP does in advance of elections,” LEX 18 News explained.

“The results shown were not valid. They were simply part of a test. We regret the discovery of the cached web link and have removed the data from that page. We apologize for any confusion,” the news portal added.
