Former Trump campaign manager Steve Bannon has one potential running companion in mind for the 2024 presidential election.
During an episode on his “War Room” podcast, Bannon suggested that presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. doesn’t likely have any real chance to win the 2024 Democratic primary and that he could join Trump’s ticket to become an “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 began. “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 listeners to consider “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 concluded his argument by noting that Trump was disregarded as a legitimate candidate in 2015, adding that RFK Jr. is also being disregarded by the media and other Democratic Party members.
“So there’s something aborning 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 continued.
“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,” Bannon concluded.
Kennedy had 15 percent of the primary vote against President Biden, according to the average of recent polls. That is not a negligible amount.
If even half of that 15 percent were persuaded to join Trump supporters and vote for a Trump/Kennedy ticket, the Biden presidency would likely come to an end.
According to USA Today, 80 percent of Democrat voters polled want the president to debate RFK, which, based on the preponderance of President Biden’s speaking engagements, could be disastrous for the president.
However, there is virtually no possibility that the Democratic Party would accept such an idea, nor is there any reason for them to.
“As you know, no incumbent R [Republican] or D [Democrat] have done debates,” Kevin Munoz, a Biden campaign spokesperson, said in an email.
