Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Claims Americans Are Voting Based on Fear



Robert F. Kennedy Jr. believes he can win a presidential election as a third-party candidate, despite polls indicating a significant struggle in a three-way race. At a rally, Kennedy stated that he was leading in two scenarios: one against either President Biden or former President Trump individually. Kennedy acknowledges the differences between Biden and Trump but argues that their positions on so-called “culture war issues” serve to divide the country, while on serious issues such as national debt and chronic disease, their stances are not significantly different.

Kennedy Jr. made an ambitious statement that he could potentially achieve what no third-party or independent candidate has done in modern U.S. history: winning a presidential election.

On the issue of the national debt and chronic disease, Kennedy said there were no significant differences between Biden’s and Trump’s positions. He expressed concern over the U.S.’s high death rate due to coronavirus compared to other developed countries, attributing it in part to the low vaccine uptake, which Kennedy has campaigned against.
