(ReclaimingAmerica.net) – A new poll reveals that over half of registered Democratic Party voters think Joe Biden should participate in an official TV debate with Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who is challenging him for the 2024 presidential nomination.
The Trafalgar Group and the Convention for States Action conducted the poll. They asked US voters whether Biden and RFK Jr., the leading Democratic presidential hopefuls, should “participate in the Presidential Primary Debate process.”
According to the results, 77.5% of respondents said Biden should debate Kennedy. On the other hand, as reported by Breitbart News, 15.6% were against the idea, and 6.9% were unsure.
More specifically, 57.5% of Democratic voters who participated in the poll think a debate between Biden and Kennedy would be a good move. However, 31.7% disagreed, while 10.8% were undecided.
When it comes to Republican voters, a staggering 92.8% agreed that the Democratic president should have a primary debate with Kennedy, as did 80.1% of independent voters.
The poll included 1,088 likely general election voters and was carried out between June 5 and June 9. It has a margin of error of 2.9 percentage points.
Robert Kennedy Jr. has been seen as the only serious challenger to Biden, who is expected to secure his party’s nomination. The only other contender is self-help writer Marianne Williamson.
Real Clear Politics collected data from various polls conducted between May 17 and June 15. The average showed Biden having the support of 62% of Democratic primary voters, RFK with 15.6%, and Williamson with 6.1%.
RFK Jr. has voiced his willingness to debate Biden during the primary process.
“I have known and liked Joe Biden for many years, but we differ profoundly on fundamental issues such as corporate influence in government, censorship, civil liberties, poverty, corruption, and war policy, among others,” Kennedy stated in a social media post in April.
He also expressed his eagerness to engage in debates and town hall meetings. Kennedy stated, “I look forward to engaging him in debates and town hall meetings, in a primary election that is honest, civil, and transparent. I invite him into a new era of respectful dialog in these times of division.”
