Robert Kennedy Jr.’s surprising entrance into the 2024 Democrat Presidential Primary rocked the political world.
Biden and the Democrats are determined on keeping Kennedy Jr. sidelined throughout the race.
But Joe Biden received some bad news that left him in panic mode over Robert Kennedy Jr.’s campaign.
Joe Biden’s Presidency has been a total disaster for the country.
The border crisis is worse than ever, as record breaking numbers of illegal aliens and dangerous drugs like fentanyl are flooding into the country.
Inflation is sky-high, banks are crashing, and the economy is teetering on the brink of collapse.
Biden’s bumbling of foreign policy with his proxy war in Ukraine has America facing the real possibility of World War III with Russia.
Joe Biden is also 80 years old and showing his age daily.
Despite all that, Joe Biden is asking voters to keep him around until he is 86 years old by running for a second term.
But Joe Biden does have some competition in the Democrat Primary.
Marianne Williamson, who also ran for a brief period in 2020, is running as a Democrat but is not well-known and poses no threat to Biden.
However, Robert Kennedy Jr. is a different story.
As the son of Robert F. Kennedy and the nephew of President John F. Kennedy, Robert Kennedy, Jr. comes from the most well-known family in American politics.
But Kennedy Jr. is not challenging Biden from the Left like a Bernie Sanders-type candidate would.
Kennedy Jr. is one of the biggest critics of Joe Biden and Anthony Fauci’s COVID mandates and restrictions.
Kennedy Jr. authored the best-selling book, The Real Anthony Fauci: Bill Gates, Big Pharma, and the Global War on Democracy and Public Health, which exposed Fauci’s long history of fraud to the American people.
Kennedy Jr. is also very critical of the Left’s war on free speech and opposes Big Tech’s censorship regime.
And while Kennedy Jr. used to support the Left’s radical environmentalist agenda, he recently admitted it had been hijacked by the global elites.
Kennedy Jr. would have several issues to contrast himself with in a debate with Biden, and recently challenged the President to the stage.
“I have known and liked Joe Biden for many years, but we differ profoundly on fundamental issues such as corporate influence in government, censorship, civil liberties, poverty, corruption, and war policy, among others,” Kennedy Jr. wrote. “I look forward to engaging him in debates and town hall meetings, in a primary election that is honest, civil, and transparent. I invite him into a new era of respectful dialog in these times of division.”
Of course, Joe Biden and the Democrats are currently refusing to hold a Primary debate.
But that could change after a new poll showed nearly 80% of previous Biden voters believe he should participate in a Primary debate with his opponents.
“A majority of voters who supported President Joe Biden in 2020 believe he should step up again and publicly debate other aspiring Democrat presidential candidates looking ahead to 2024, a poll released Thursday sets out,” Breitbart reported. “A Redfield & Wilton Strategies poll carried out on April 30 for Newsweek found 79 percent of eligible voters who voted for Biden agree the Democratic Party should hold all-in televised primary debates.”
“The figure supporting debates was even higher among those who said they’d previously voted for Biden, with 79 percent agreeing there should be Democratic primary debates,” Breitbart added.
Democrats calling for him to debate only shows how little confidence Party voters have in nominating Joe Biden for a second term.
“The fact that such a high percentage of the Democratic electorate wants to see primary debates is confirmatory of polling showing just how dissatisfied rank-and-file voters are with their option of Joe Biden,” founding director of University College London’s Centre on U.S. Politics Thomas Gift said.
This is bad news for Biden.
Any type of Primary fight will damage him in the General Election, assuming he makes it through the nominating process.
