- Multiple third-party candidates could sway the 2024 presidential election in key battleground states if there’s a rematch between former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden, political observers and polling analysts told the Daily Caller News Foundation.
- Green Party candidate Cornel West, a Libertarian Party candidate, a No Labels candidate and likely Robert F. Kennedy Jr. could all be on the ballot in 2024, which could siphon off more support from Biden than Trump, polling analysts and political strategists told the DCNF.
- “I can imagine a world in which we have two, three, four legitimate third parties, and unlike usual, all in they’ll get 1%, 2%, they might get 5% or 6% — and that, without a doubt, is going to be the most important element of this election,” Mike McKenna, GOP consultant and president of MWR Strategies, told the DCNF.
As if Joe Biden’s dementia and insane policies are not enough to worry about Joe Biden in 2024, the threat of multiple third-party candidates, especially RFK Jr is likely to cause the downfall and possible demise of the Democratic Party. Cornell West, the Green Party candidate will drain of a number of Black votes on top of the many who are now voting Republican.
RFK Jr will drain off a number of moderate Democrats as will Joe Manchin if he decides to mount a third party challenge.
However, don’t get too cocky because the Democrats no longer depend on real voters to win elections. Biden could end up with 94 million votes despite being as popular as peanut butter and mustard sandwiches. Where there is a copy machine, there is a way.
There could even be a fourth third party candidate if No Labels manage to run a candidate in the race. Those third paty candidates could siphon votes from President Trump, but they will draw many more from Joe Biden. In close states, we could see some heavy shifts, especially as swing states implement policies that curtail voter fraud. For instance, the Wisconsin Supreme Court has outlawed voter drop boxes.
Multiple third-party candidates could be on the ballot in 2024, including a Green Party candidate, a No Labels candidate, a Libertarian Party candidate and likely Robert F. Kennedy Jr. as an independent. Several polling analysts and political strategists believe that the additional third-party candidates will likely siphon off more support from Biden, which could allow Trump to return to the White House in 2024, they told the DCNF.
“If there is a rematch between Biden and Trump, there are going to be a significant number of voters who hold negative views of both candidates, given that both have favorability numbers only around 40% and unfavorability over 50%. Those are conditions ripe for heightened third-party voting,” Kyle Kondik, nonpartisan polling analyst and managing editor for Sabato’s Crystal Ball at the University of Virginia’s Center for Politics, told the DCNF. “I wouldn’t expect the third-party vote to be all that large, but the margins in key states are likely to be so small that the third-party candidates could end up playing spoiler.”
Cornel West is running for the Green Party nomination, many are running for the Libertarian Party nomination and centrist organization No Labels is considering running a third-party ticket in 2024, with West Virginia Democratic Sen. Joe Manchin often mentioned as a potential contender. Kennedy, who is currently seeking the Democratic Party nomination, is expected to switch his party affiliation to run as an independent in Philadelphia on Oct. 9.
