Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Eliminated From ‘Libertarian’ Presidential Nomination

Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. was eliminated from the Libertarian Party’s nomination over the weekend following the party’s first round of voting.

Kennedy only received 2% of the votes.

In April 2024, Former President Donald Trump called the Independent “a WASTED PROTEST VOTE” that is even more “Radical Left” than President Joe Biden and his “Green New Scammers.”

“RFK Jr. is a Democrat ‘Plant,’ a Radical Left Liberal who’s been put in place in order to help Crooked Joe Biden, the Worst President in the History of the United States, get Re-Elected,” Trump wrote on his Truth Social account.

“A Vote for Junior’ would essentially be a WASTED PROTEST VOTE, that could swing either way, but would only swing against the Democrats if Republicans knew the true story about him.”

Earlier this month, RFK Jr. spent time campaigning in Texas at an environmental gathering.

Speaking at the EarthX event in Dallas, Kennedy expressed confidence in his campaign’s potential, aiming to capture at least 33% of the vote in Texas.

A recent poll by the Texas Politics Project at the University of Texas illustrates Kennedy’s uphill battle, with Trump holding a considerable lead over Biden, leaving Kennedy at just 8% support. Jim Henson, director of the Texas Politics Project, noted that Kennedy’s candidacy primarily draws negative reactions from Democrats rather than Republicans.

In contrast to traditional Democratic positions, Kennedy adopts conservative stances on key Texas issues, particularly immigration and border security. He advocates for stricter border control measures before addressing immigration policy, aligning himself with conservative sentiments.

Kennedy’s views on vaccines and abortion further distinguish him from mainstream Democratic policies, appealing to certain segments of disgruntled voters disenchanted with mainstream politics.

While Kennedy’s platform encompassed both liberal and conservative themes, he emphasizes issues that transcend partisan divides, positioning himself as a unifying figure amidst growing political polarization.
