I’m not sure whether this latest statistic is due the shitty choice for US President or because of the whole Harambe saga since his death, but either way, 5% of the US population said they would choose the deceased gorilla as their leader.

According to Public Policy Polling, voters would much rather put Harambe in charge of the country over Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. To be fair, I reckon he’d do a lot less damage if he were sat in the White House.
Overall 43% who took part in the survey said they’d vote for Trump, 48% for Hillary and 5% for Harambe, while 4% were undecided. In addition, Harambe had a significantly lower unfavourable rating amongst voters in the poll, at only 27%. Meanwhile, Trump obviously had the leading score in this category, with 58% providing negative rating for the New York billionaire.
All in all, this poll was obviously meant as a bit of a joke because of all of the Harambe memes going around online since his untimely death in May. But still, I think it highlights the severe mess of this year’s presidential election. You’ve got two severely disliked leaders in competition for the throne who are so uninspiring that people are suggesting a dead primate would be a safer bet. And do you know what, maybe they are right.
This woman claimed she would quite literally die rather than vote for either Hillary or Trump.
