Former Trump campaign manager Steve Bannon reveals that he has a singular candidate in mind for the 2024 election against former president Donald Trump.
On a segment of his own podcast, “War Room,” Bannon expressed his view that Robert F. Kennedy Jr. has little chance of winning the 2024 Democratic primary and that his only chance is to join Trump’s ticket to become a “unstoppable force.”
“Robert RFK Jr. is not going to win the Democratic nomination. The reason is that hard-core Democrats are not going to vote for him,” Bannon started. “If you look at the polling, his voters, that 19 to 20 plus percent, whatever it is right now in the polling, are people that voted for Obama twice looking for a change and many of whom voted for Trump in ’16. What you have is this anti-establishment, anti-authoritarian, populist movement that doesn’t trust the administrative state, doesn’t trust the deep state.”
Bannon continued, advising his audience to heed to “Judas Pence. Listen to these gentlemen. After hearing all of the Keebler characters, listen to what Robert F. Kennedy has to say. Also visible is the Venn diagram. There is a much larger potential overlap with what President Trump is discussing. Therefore, this is a developing situation that requires close monitoring. Is it flawless? No. We inhabit an extremely imperfect universe. However, you can see that something is being produced right now.”
Bannon added to his argument by mentioning Trump’s disqualification in 2015 as a legitimate candidate. He added that the media and many members of the Democratic Party also disregard RFK Jr.
“So there’s something abhorring here and we’ve got to keep our eye on it. This is very much like, as John Fredericks remembers in ‘14 and ‘15 when we were talking about this and this guy named Trump that, you know, was a leading something that was just, you know, starting to coalesce,” Bannon went on.
“And of course, people mocked and ridiculed it. He’s just a TV guy. All he’s trying to do is renegotiate his deal with NBC. No, that was incorrect,” he finished.
Recent surveys indicated that Kennedy had 15% of the primary vote against incumbent President Joe Biden. This number, though modest, is not insignificant.
If at least half of those 15 percent sided with Trump supporters and voted for a Kennedy/Trump ticket, it would be very simple to terminate Biden’s tenure in office.
Eighty percent of Democratic voters wrote that they wanted to see our current sleepy-faced president debate RFK in a debate that, given the preponderance of President Biden’s speaking arrangements, could be disastrous for the incumbent president, according to USA Today.
However, there is virtually no possibility that anyone in the Democratic party would accept such an idea, and they have no reason to do so.
“As you know, no incumbent R [Republican] or D [Democrat] have done debates,” Kevin Munoz, a Biden campaign spokesperson, wrote in an email.
But Biden’s decision not to debate could also be a grave error.

“The decision not to debate is ignoring the 82% of women, 84% of union households, 86% of independents, and 90% of young voters who are not only planning to vote in their state’s Democratic primary or caucus next year but also would like to see a series of Democratic primary debates,” of Suffolk’s Political Research Center director, David Paleologos, announced.
