A Random Man Beat Joe Biden In The American Samoa Primary, And The Reaction Has Been Very, Very Funny

Super Tuesday was yesterday, and President Joe Biden won *just* about every Democratic primary.

I say Biden won *just* about every primary because he lost one: American Samoa.

By the whopping count of 51–40, Biden lost to some guy named Jason Palmer.

Yes, Jason Palmer, some man pretty much no one had ever heard of.

For those wondering, Palmer is an "entrepreneur" from Baltimore who entered the race in November.

He told the AP that he had been campaigning remotely in American Samoa on Zoom calls.

He also held meet and greets there.

That was enough to capture 51 votes and the *astounding* victory.

If you remember, American Samoa voted for Michael Bloomberg in 2020, so it's somewhat their thing to vote for the most random candidate.

"Gotta respect American Samoa just voting for whomever pays attention to them in a primary," this person said.

"I swear American Samoa just votes for the funniest candidate as a bit," another said.

Needless to say, the posts have been very funny.
