Robert F. Kennedy Jr.’s family is not happy with his decision to run as an independent in the 2024 presidential election. They claim that he doesn’t share the same values, vision, or judgment as the rest of the family. Ouch, talk about a family feud!

In his announcement, Kennedy declared independence from the two major political parties, saying they are incompatible with our “inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.” Sounds like he’s trying to channel his inner Founding Father.
But let’s be real here, Kennedy’s chances of actually winning the election are slim. A recent poll showed that he could secure the votes of only 1 in 7 voters in a matchup between himself, former President Donald Trump, and President Joe Biden. He’s basically the third wheel, pulling support from both sides.
Honestly, it’s hard to take Kennedy’s candidacy seriously when he’s up against two heavy-hitters like Trump and Biden. It’s like bringing a water gun to a gunfight. Plus, the 2024 election was already shaping up to be a close race between Biden and Trump. Now Kennedy’s throwing a wrench into the mix.
In the end, Kennedy’s decision to run as an independent may just be a ploy for attention. But hey, at least he’s making things interesting. Let the political drama unfold!
