Oof: New Poll Has McMullin Below Harambe The Gorilla

The full data hasn't been released yet, but PPP's new poll of Texas can't be encouraging for independent conservative candidate Evan McMullin. According to PPP's official Twitter account, he's polling lower than actual candidates Gary Johnson and Jill Stein, and also lower than fake candidates Deez Nuts and Harambe. Only three people said they would vote for McMullin, which rounded down to zero.

Harambe, a gorilla, was killed in the Cincinnati Zoo in May when a child climbed into his enclosure. He has since become an internet meme.

An earlier PPP poll showed startlingly high percentages of people were willing to throw their support behind Harambe's nonexistent campaign for president.
