Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has seen his support grow, ever since he announced his presidential campaign earlier in the year. Despite this support and the millions he’s raised, the Democratic Party appears to not be acknowledging him.
They refused to plan debates between RFK and Joe Biden, despite Kennedy’s polling numbers requiring it. Even the White House has denied Kennedy Secret Service protection, something Kennedy claims is being done to harm his campaign.
But Kennedy appears undaunted in his pursuit to secure the White House. His party, however, continues to neglect him–showing apparent bias in the electoral process. Now, reports indicate Kennedy is about to make a big announcement. If true, Biden’s re-election chances are over.
From The Post Millennial:
Robert F Kennedy Jr, who launched his campaign for the Democrat presidential nomination in April, reportedly has plans to announce a run as an independent candidate.
According to Mediaite, Kennedy plans to make the announcement on October 9 in Philadelphia, with a text message viewed by the outlet stating that his campaign is planning “attack ads” against the Democrat National Committee to “pave the way” for his announcement.
A Kennedy campaign insider reportedly stated that the candidate believes he is being excluded by his own party. Because of this, reports claim that he will announce an independent run later this week.
Kennedy appears to have enough support to build an independent campaign. He recently raised millions of dollars from supporters, during a special event with rock legend Eric Clapton. He appears to be receiving support from moderate liberals, who oppose Biden’s increasingly leftist agenda.
Should Kennedy run as an independent, Biden’s chances at re-election are next to zero. Biden is already facing a third-party candidate in Cornell West, a respected black professor. Experts already feared that West would take many votes from Biden in the general election, weakening his chances against Republicans.
If Kennedy also runs as an independent, he is likely to take moderate votes away from Biden. Voters who do not want to vote for a Republican previously had no other choice but Biden. But if RFK does run as an independent, many voters will pick him over Biden.
With two liberal candidates running against him in the general election, it will be very hard for Biden to win enough votes to defeat the Republican challenger. Kennedy switching from a Democrat to an independent candidate could be the most critical factor in deciding the 2024 Election.
- Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is reportedly going to run as an independent candidate.
- This is due to the Democrats’ refusal to support his campaign, despite rising support.
- Should Kennedy run as an independent, he will take many votes from Biden, dooming Joe’s campaign.
