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 explained. “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 guys. Listen to all the Keebler elves and then listen to what Robert F Kennedy is talking about. And you see the Venn diagram. There’s a much bigger overlap, potential overlap with what President Trump’s talking about. So this is something that’s emerging and you got to keep your eye on it. Is it perfect? No. We live in a very imperfect world. But you see something that’s aborning right here.”
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 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,” he concluded.
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.

More troubling for Joe Biden, as eighty percent of Democratic voters wrote that they wanted to see our current sleepy-faced president go against RFK in a debate that, given the majority of President Biden’s speaking arrangements, could cause disaster for the sitting president, USA Today reported.
However, there is next to no chance that anyone in the Democratic party would accommodate such an idea, and there is no good reason for them to want to. CONTINUE READING…
