Biden’s Top 2024 Rival Is Gaining Ground Among Democrats

A Convention of States Action/Trafalgar Group poll revealed that the majority of Democrats favor having President Biden confront Democratic rival Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

Respondents were asked if Biden and Kennedy Jr., the two main Democrats running for president, should “participate in the Presidential Primary Debate process.”

77.5 percent of respondents overall agreed that the two should debate one another. Only 15.6% of respondents said they shouldn’t, while 6.9% are still undecided.

Naturally, the majority of Republicans (92.8%) and independents (80.1%) agree that the two should debate.

It turns out that both parties share this opinion, as 57.5 percent of Democrats agree that Biden and RFK Jr. should have a debate, 31.7 percent disagree, and 10.8 percent are still undecided.

1,088 potential general election voters participated in the study between June 5 and 9, 2023. It has a margin of error of +/- 2.9%.

Notably, during the primary season, RFK Jr. challenged the president to a debate and emphasized his desire to see Biden on the debate platform.

“We have radically different views on basic problems like corporate control in government, censorship, civil rights, poverty, corruption, and war policy, among others,” according to RFK Jr., who stated this in an April social media posting.

“In an open, polite, and honest primary race, I am looking forward to challenging him in debates and town halls. In these divisive times, I encourage him to a new era of polite conversation,” he continued.

In the same month, RFK Jr. criticized the Democratic National Committee (DNC) for having a “rigged” primary system, pushing the election to South Carolina before New Hampshire, and neglecting to organize debates.

He made the remark in an interview with Breitbart News in April. “The DNC, at this point, is taking their official stance that there is going to be no debate, and I believe that is unfortunate,” he said.

“We the Democratic Party should be doing all we can to demonstrate that, you know, this is not a crooked, corrupt system when there are so many Americans that have concerns about the integrity of the elections. That it is genuinely a democracy where people can run, participate in debates, and be seen by the general public, and they are [the DNC] kind of doing the reverse,” Kennedy Jr. said.

“Too many Americans already believe that the entire system is set up to harm them. This serves as proof of it. And I believe that’s concerning,” he continued.

According to a recent The Economist/YouGov poll, RFK Jr. has a greater favorability rating than other contenders for president on both sides of the political spectrum.
