With Biden, RFK Jr. Suggests a "No-spoiler" Promise to Defeat Trump

During a campaign rally in New York on Wednesday, independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. came up with the idea of taking a “no-spoiler” vow with Vice President Joe Biden. This comes at a time when Kennedy Jr. is engaged in a dispute with former President Donald Trump.

The vow, as he outlined it, would require Kennedy and Biden to co-fund a survey that would be conducted in fifty states and would involve more than thirty thousand people in the middle of October. The poll would match each of them against Trump in a two-man contest, with the agreement that whoever performs the worst against him would withdraw from the campaign for the presidency.

After presenting the findings of a poll that was commissioned by the campaign and showed scenarios in which he might win against both Biden and Trump in separate head-to-head races, Kennedy made the accusation that Biden is the ” spoiler” in the race, rather than him.

On Wednesday, Democrats swiftly rejected the argument that was presented. In a statement, the spokesperson for the Democratic National Committee, Matt Corridoni, referred to Kennedy as a spoiler candidate. He said that his “VEEP-like performance today does nothing to dispel that notion — it only reinforces how deeply unserious his campaign is,” referring to the HBO comedy.

At first, the presidential candidate was a Democrat, following the Kennedy family’s tradition. However, they later changed parties and ran as an Independent. In March, RFK announced that Nicole Shanahan, an attorney and entrepreneur from California, would be his running mate in his unlikely attempt to become the President of the United States.

According to a national poll released on April 18, it seems that RFK is attracting voters between the ages of 18 to 34 and 35 to 49, away from Trump. The Florida Atlantic University and Mainstreet Research poll found that President Joe Biden is currently slightly ahead of Trump by a margin of one point. But when RFK was included in the test ballot, Biden’s advantage over Trump increased to five points.

Trump criticized RFK on his Truth Social account about a week after the poll came out. He referred to RFK as a Democrat “plant.”

“A Vote for Junior’ would essentially be a WASTED PROTEST VOTE, that could swing either way, but would only swing against the Democrats if Republicans knew the true story about him,” Trump wrote in a post.

RFK’s campaign has promised to make sure that “Bobby” is listed as a candidate in all 50 states and the District of Columbia for the general election on Nov. 5. However, this is a difficult task to accomplish without the support of the Democrat or Republican party.

The campaign has gathered enough signatures to be able to appear on the ballot in New Hampshire, Nevada, Hawaii, North Carolina, Idaho, Nebraska, and Iowa. The Kennedy-Shanahan ticket has been officially added to the ballot in Utah and Michigan.

During the event on Wednesday, RFK stated that his campaign has already received enough signatures to be on the ballot in New York. However, he mentioned that they are still collecting more signatures.
