Kanye West likely woke up a very disappointed man this morning.

The rapper took to Twitter yesterday and told followers he's "supporting the Democratic ticket in these midterms."

But the Democrats were walloped across the board by the Republicans last night, losing control of the House and the Senate.

Still, "the midterms are extremely important," Kanye encouraged his fans, regardless of party affiliation. "I know it’s last minute, but if you haven’t voted, please vote today."

Prior to her her husband's message, Kim Kardashian had Tweeted that she's "standing with Obama in the midterm election 2morrow," causing some to wonder whether she believed the President was up for re-election.

The Kardashian-Wests have bumped heads with the Obamas several times in the past.

Obama spurned Kim at a charity event back in May.

Shortly thereafter, Kanye slammed Obama in one of his signature rants during a radio interview.

Despite their long-standing beef, however, (Remember when Obama called Kanye a "jackass" in 2012?), Kim Kardashian has announced that she's supporting President Obama in today's election. Even though, ya know...he's not on the ballot.

"I'm standing with Obama in the midterm election 2morrow!" Kim tweeted last night.

Sure, it's possible she meant that she's standing with Obama by voting for Democrats in her state and local elections, but given the political IQ of Kim's average follower, couldn't she have been a bit more specific?

Move over, Rahm Emanuel. And make room for... Mayor Yeezus?

With Emanuel's approval rating hovering around 29 percent, and with under a year to go until the next Mayoral election in Chicago, local artist/writer Ben Shepard has thrown his support around someone not quite in the race:

Mr. Kim Kardashian himself.

Shepard has created Kanye4mayor.org, a website that states how and why “Mayor West could lead a movement to make [Chicago] the best city in the world.

Why, you might wonder, would a resident want someone in charge who thinks Kardashian is the ideal celebrity?

Poor Mitt Romney.

First, it comes out that Nicki Minaj is actually not voting for him in November. Now, in the track "To the World" (off the compilation album "Cruel Summer"), Kanye West takes a shot at the Republican nominee for President by hitting him where it counts:

In Romney's tax returns.

“Mitt Romney don’t pay no tax,” West decrees in a line from the single, following that quip with: “Mitt Romney don’t pay no tax.”

Yes, again. We think he has a point he wants to make. Listen for yourself:

This isn't the only time West has been critical of someone running for office or already in the highest office in the land. He said George W. Bush doesn't care about black people during the Hurricane Katrina disaster.

We wonder what Kim Kardashian thinks of this whole thing. Oh... right: Whatever her mother tells her to think.

It doesn't appear that President Obama's opinion of Kanye West has changed.

After Obama let it slip before an interview (below) with ABC's Nightline two years ago that he thought the rapper was a "jackass" for interrupting Taylor Swift's speech at the MTV VMAs, he offered up a further assessment of him this week.

The verdict? Unchanged.

Asked if he prefers Kanye or Jay-Z," the President replied with a smile, "Jay-Z. Although I do like Kanye. He's a Chicago guy. Smart. He's very talented."

After being reminded of the slam heard around the world, Obama stuck to his guns regarding the outspoken performer and boyfriend of Kim Kardashian.

"He is a jackass," he added. "But he's talented."

His girlfriend, on the other hand ...
