NEW YORK— Forget Donald Trump... or Hillary. Meet Deez Nuts-- your future president of the united states.

The unidentified Mr. Nuts- is polling at 9-percent in North Carolina, and put up similar numbers in Minnesota and Iowa.

Here's a little background on the unidentified write-in...

According to a Federal Elections Commission filing, he hails from Wallingford Iowa and he's considering running for several parties including Citizens Party, Justice Party, Marijuana Party and the, Rent Is Too Damn High Party—to name a few.

Mark C. Olson, who is listed at the Wallingford address on the filing, claims on twitter- that the candidate is his 15 year old son.

His real name is believed to be Brady Olson, and is supposedly entering sophomore year in high school.

While Mr. Nuts has a few years before he can legally run for President, he's one of hundreds of other candidates who have filled out a statement of candidacy form.
