A snapshot of West's contributors' professions provides some insight into the citizens backing his campaign. More than one third -- 1,191 -- self-identified as students, pitching in $60 to $4,220. More than 20% identified as self-employed and nearly 11% as not-employed.
The majority of West's campaign funds went to "ballot access" services and consulting. After entering the race in July, missing numerous deadlines to appear on state ballots, West qualified for ballot access in 12 states: Arkansas, Colorado, Idaho, Iowa, Kentucky, Louisiana, Minnesota, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah and Vermont.
His second largest single expense of $918,130 went to Los Angeles Apparel for campaign apparel.
West managed to earn 66,636 total votes for about 0.04% of votes nationally, according to an NBC News report on Dec 10, earning him a sixth place finish among all candidates.
