Trump’s Chances of Victory Just Got Even Better!
Robert F. Kennedy Jr., the black sheep of the illustrious Kennedy clan, is reportedly ready to shake up the 2024 Presidential Election in a way no one saw coming. According to a report, RFK Jr. is preparing to announce that he will run for president, not as a Democrat, but as an Independent.
This daring move is a clear jab at the Democratic National Committee (DNC), with Kennedy apparently feeling that the DNC is shifting the goalposts to exclude his candidacy. A campaign insider said, “Bobby feels that the DNC is changing the rules to exclude his candidacy so an independent run is the only way to go.” This is a shocking revelation that could potentially create a seismic shift in American politics.
Kennedy is expected to make this announcement in early October in Pennsylvania, the very birthplace of our nation, adding a touch of historical gravitas to his decision. But he’s not stopping there. He’s also planning to launch “attack ads” against the Democratic Party before his announcement. It’s a bold strategy, but then again, Kennedy has never been one to shy away from controversy.
In a recent video, Kennedy teased his upcoming announcement, saying, “I’m not going to tell you right now exactly what that announcement will be.” He went on to say that he’ll be speaking about a “sea change in American politics,” hinting at his breakaway from traditional party lines.
Kennedy is positioning himself as an outsider, taking shots at leaders from both major political parties, including Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump. He believes there’s a path to victory by challenging the “corrupt rules” established by Washington’s vested interests. In his words, “We’re going to have to rewrite the assumptions and change the habits of American politics.”
Kennedy’s candidacy offers hope to those disenchanted with the current political climate, but it also raises questions about the impact of a third-party candidate on the 2024 election. Will he be able to gain enough traction to pose a serious threat to the established parties, or will his run merely serve to further divide an already polarized electorate?
I don’t think that his move from the Democratic party to running as an Independent will do much to shift Trump’s support base, but I do believe it certainly will affect Biden’s “base” giving Trump even more of an edge.
