RFK, Jr. Tops Biden and Trump in New Favorability Poll

Forbes reports: 2024 Democratic presidential contender Robert F. Kennedy Jr.—an environmental lawyer with anti-vaccine views and a strong family dynasty at his back—has higher favorability numbers than either President Joe Biden or former President Donald Trump, according to a new poll by The Economist and YouGov, even as Biden maintains a lead in the 2024 primary. Kennedy Jr. was viewed favorably by 49% of respondents and unfavorably by just 30%, leaving him with a net rating of 19 points—higher than any other candidate in the poll, which surveyed 1,500 adult respondents from June 10 to 13.

Biden’s Kennedy Headache Is Rapidly Turning Into a Migraine

AMAC reports: If not for his name, most Democrats would be quick to argue that Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., has nothing going for him in his long-shot primary challenge to Joe Biden. But whispers are beginning to arise that perhaps, just perhaps, Biden and his team should start taking the Kennedy challenge seriously. Biden’s numbers remain soft, but more worryingly, Kennedy, rather than proving an inexperienced flake, has shown remarkable energy. He clearly takes his bid seriously.

Populism May Be Driving RFK, Jr. Toward the White House

The Messenger reports: wo months before the 2016 presidential election, I predicted that New York City businessman Donald Trump would win the election, win Pennsylvania, and get 306 electoral votes. Trump did win, of course, he took Pennsylvania, and he ended up with 304 electoral votes.  Years before that prediction, I worked on three winning presidential campaigns — although that experience had little to do with the accuracy of my prediction in 2016. Instead, it came down to taking off partisan blinders, studying the 2012 election results, factoring in the positive or negative effects of viral statements the two major candidates had made, and, most especially, assessing the needs and fears of working-class Americans. Much of the political intelligentsia comes from money — and good for them. I did not, however. I grew up in abject poverty. My mother and I often lived in cars when I was a child. One plus resulting from those years is that my ears became attuned to not only the issues that plague working-class and disenfranchised voters but also the populist messages that might resonate with such Americans. So, for a few months before that 2016 election, I spoke with hundreds of people from across the political and socioeconomic spectrum. Those conversations told me there was a growing resentment against the entrenched elites controlling both major political parties — resentment that, at least to me, seemed to open up a lane for the outsider Trump. He found that lane because tens of millions of Americans were desperately searching for an outsider, a populist who would finally champion their concerns. Now, eight years later, a new “outsider,” another populist, has emerged as a potential champion for millions of Americans: Robert F. Kennedy Jr. You can read the full opinion piece here.

RFK, Jr.’s Rising Profile Sparks Democratic Jitters

The Hill reports: Democrats are growing concerned that Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s profile is rising just as President Biden embarks on a challenging campaign to keep the White House out of Republican control. Kennedy, an anti-vaccine proponent who launched a primary bid against Biden this spring, is doing unexpectedly well in some polls and receiving increasing media attention as a result. He has also been on a press tour this week that included a Twitter Spaces discussion with Elon Musk and digital town hall with journalist Michael Smerconish. “Democrats would be foolish to mock or belittle RFK Jr. Every time we make fun of those who hold fringe positions, we lose,” said Michael Ceraso, a Democratic strategist and former campaign aide to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg. “The Democratic Party acting smug never works.” Kennedy has indeed stirred up some untapped anger within his own party; Democrats have seen him rise to double digits in several recent polls, leading some establishment figures to acknowledge the parts of his message that may be resonating with voters.  Read the full article here.

The RFK, Jr. Wild Card in New Hampshire

The National Review reports: The conventional wisdom is that the presidential campaign of Robert F. Kennedy Jr., and its apparent traction with a segment of the electorate (as much as 20 percent in the latest national CNN poll), reflects a combination of three things. One is generic discontent with Joe Biden, for which Kennedy is an available vehicle. The second is the attraction of RFK Jr.’s conspiratorial populism (ranging from stolen-election theories to anti-vaccines to a broader suspicion of technology and finance) to the sorts of left-populists who backed Bernie Sanders in the last two elections. The third is name recognition, including the residual power of the Kennedy name. Marianne Williamson, the third Democrat in the race, shares many of these characteristics, although she is not a Kennedy and not identified to nearly the same extent with, say, the anti-vax cause. She’s also consistently pulling about eight percent of the Democratic electorate in polls.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s Battle for Liberty

Lew Rockwell reports: Robert Kennedy,Jr. is waging a heroic struggle for liberty. He is one of the foremost crusaders against the fake Covid “vaccines.” He has been especially effective in his exposure of arch-criminal Anthony Fauci. He has also fully embraces the position that both his father Robert Kennedy, Sr. and his uncle John F. Kennedy were assassinated as part of a conspiracy. The best summary of RFK Jr.’s achievements and programs is by superlawyer Robert Barnes: “In his early 20’s, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. attacked the overthrow of Allende in Chile. (See Atlantic Monthly, February 1974). In 1975, before the Church Committee completed revelations, he condemned American assassinations of foreign leaders. (See Wall Street Journal, December 16, 1975). When others stayed silent as we unleashed Islamic jihad through Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, and Afghanistan, RFK pushed back in twin articles in February of 1979 published in the Post and the Boston Globe against the coups. RFK continue to criticize almost every major foreign intervention in his lifetime, which started with Vietnam alongside his father’s campaign in 1968 through his criticism of both Iraq wars, the intervention in Syria, and the involvement in Afghanistan, criticizing these oil-driven wars, as his commentary in 2001, 2003, 2005, 2009, 2016, and 2018 detail. As the latest iteration of that, see a pre-campaign, but recent piece in Politico.

Israel and Antisemitism: My Conversation with Presidential Candidate Robert Kennedy, Jr.

The Jewish Journal reports: Today I met with Democratic Presidential candidate Robert Kennedy, Jr. and discussed Israel, the rise of antisemitism, and Kennedy’s recent tweet where he supported Roger Waters. It was courageous of Bobby to come and meet me and reassert his lifelong support of Israel and the Jewish people, continuing in the legacy of his great father who was murdered by Palestinian gunman Sirhan Sirhan because of his own support of Israel in 1968. Bobby and I discussed the volatile situation in the Middle East and the challenges facing America for more than two hours.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr.’s Candidacy and What Might Have Been

Wall Street Journal Opinion reports: When I was a kid in the mid-1950s, I used to play touch football with Robert F. Kennedy, the father, and his crew on a field in Georgetown. I remember one Saturday morning when—despite being conspicuously pregnant—Ethel Kennedy was in the game. She lined up as a wide receiver. Bobby, as usual, was captain and quarterback. Ethel faked right, then cut to the inside, and her husband threw her a perfect spiral. She bobbled it, the ball doing a little dance in midair for a second, and then she dropped it. Bobby, infuriated, cussed her out. The baby in Ethel’s womb that morning was Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. For me, Bobby Jr. seems to float in the interval between then and now, dislocated in time.  Read the full opinion piece here.If you resonate with this message please subscribe to our newsletter to learn more.

RFK, Jr.’s Campaign for Truth – and the Presidency of the United States

The Desert Review reports: Truth is in high demand at a time when Americans are being lied to about everything daily. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. made his career as an Environmental Lawyer by using the truth to beat deceitful corporations like DuPont and Monsanto. He upped the ante during the COVID-19 Pandemic by exposing US Vaccine Czar Dr. Fauci in his best-selling book, The Real Anthony Fauci. RFK, Jr. has told inconvenient truths about Ivermectin, Hydroxychloroquine, and the massive benefits of early treatment. He has grown into a painful thorn now piercing the Biden political agenda. At a time when the Democrats were confident they had neutralized their main threat – Donald J. Trump – with an unprecedented, concocted charge and high-profile arrest, Bobby Kennedy came out of nowhere to a 39 % popularity rating – a rise of 14 points, compared to Biden’s 43% - a drop of 11 points. Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. is running for President of the United States and is now a major contender. It seems the ruling administration has a lot to worry about with RFK, Jr.’s meteoric rise.

Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. Emphasizes the Importance of a Democratic Election and Hits DNC in Speech to New Hampshire Senate

CNN Politics reports: Robert F. Kennedy, Jr., the environmental lawyer and anti-vaccine activist who launched his 2024 presidential bid earlier this year, discussed the importance of a democratic election and critiqued the Democratic National Committee over the push to change the presidential nominating calendar in a Thursday address to the New Hampshire Senate. Speaking to lawmakers in the New Hampshire State House – a rare public speech since he began his presidential campaign – Kennedy said it’s important that “we have a real democracy and a democratic election in New Hampshire.” “There’s so many Americans who believe that the system now is rigged, the economic system, but also the political system, that the elections are fixed,” he said in Concord. “And we ought to be, the Democratic Party particularly, ought to be making this election a template for democracy to our country and to the rest of the world.” Read the full article here.If you resonate with this message please subscribe to our newsletter to learn more.
