Presidential candidate Vermin Supreme, who is known for wearing a rubber boot on his head, currently has received more write-in votes in the New Hampshire primary than former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore.
Supreme, whose campaign platform includes compulsory tooth-brushing and giving every American a free pony, has received 229 votes for the Democratic nomination with 86% of precincts reporting.
Gilmore, who served as a county prosecutor and state attorney general before becoming governor of Virginia, currently has received 120 votes for the Republican nomination with 85% of precincts reporting.

Supreme has been running for president for the last few cycles. In 2011, he glitter-bombed one of his opponents at a "lesser-known candidates" forum in New Hampshire.
