Poll Finds RFK Jr. is Helping Trump in Swing States

A new poll has found that Robert Kennedy Jr. is helping Donald Trump by taking votes from Joe Biden in the key swing states.

New Emerson College Polling/The Hill swing state polls found that Trump is leading Biden in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin in a hypothetical match-up between the two leading candidates.

In a head-to-head matchup, Trump is beating Biden in Arizona by four points, Georgia by three, Wisconsin and Pennsylvania by two, North Carolina by five, and Michigan and Nevada by one.

"When third-party candidates are included on the ballot, support is pulled away from Biden more than Trump in five states: Georgia, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin. Support is drawn evenly from each candidate in Arizona and Michigan," the pollsters report.

Mediaite reports, "When Kennedy is added to respondents’ choices, those leads only grow. In Georgia, Kennedy’s inclusion extends Trump’s lead over the field to 6 points. In a three-way matchup, Trump also benefits from Kennedy’s quixotic campaign in Wisconsin, where he leads by 5, Pennsylvania (+4), North Carolina (+9), and Nevada (+5). His margin of victory in Arizona and Michigan would remain unchanged."

“The state of the presidential election in swing states has remained relatively consistent since Emerson and The Hill started tracking them last November,” said Spencer Kimball, executive director of Emerson College Polling. “The share of undecided voters has reduced and Biden gained ground in Georgia and Nevada, narrowing the gap, while Trump has maintained a slight edge on Biden in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.”

Trump has previously referred to Kennedy as a "Democrat plant" and said that he would choose Biden over the independent candidate.

"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 began.

"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. Junior’ is totally Anti-Gun, an Extreme Environmentalist who makes the Green New Scammers look Conservative, a Big Time Taxer and Open Border Advocate, and Anti-Military/Vet…"

Trump said that the "radicalized" Kennedy family would "never allow him to be a Republican," and that his primary funder is his vice presidential candidate that "nobody ever heard of."

In a third post, Trump wrote, "I lived with RFK Jr. in New York and watched him convince Governor Cuomo to make Environmental moves that were outright NASTY. Upstate New York was not allowed to drill or frack as Ohio, Pennsylvania, and others ripped off New York Energy. Because of this, prices have skyrocketed all over that part of the Country, but especially Upstate New York and New England. Their Energy Costs are the highest in the U.S., with the exception of California, run by Gavin Newscum, the Worst Governor in the State’s History."

Trump concluded by saying, "I’d even take Biden over Junior’, because our Country would last a year or two longer prior to collapse - But it would be dead either way. His Views on Vaccines are FAKE, as is everything else about his Candidacy. Let the Democrats have RFK Jr. They deserve him!"
