A dark horse third-party candidate is polling very well in North Carolina because it's just fun to talk about him.
That's right, Deez Nuts is in the race and he's climbing the polls every day. Since Candidate Nuts first filed the paperwork to run in late July, his campaign has attracted viral attention. In North Carolina (the most immature state) he's now polling at 9%, tied with Marco Rubio and three points ahead of Carly Fiorina, Mike Huckabee, and Scott Walker. As for Chris Christie, Rick Santorum, and Bobby Jindal, they're all dwarfed by Deez Nuts's swinging shadow.
