RFK Jr. Gets 22% In 3-Way Matchup Against Biden And Trump: Poll

Inde­pen­dent pres­i­den­tial can­di­date Robert F. Kennedy Jr. took near­ly a quar­ter of the vote in a new poll exam­in­ing a hypo­thet­i­cal three-way matchup in 2024.
The results of a Quin­nip­i­ac Uni­ver­si­ty nation­al poll released on Wednes­day showed Kennedy with 22% sup­port among reg­is­tered vot­ers, behind Pres­i­dent Joe Biden with 39% and for­mer Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump with 36%, near­ly one year away from the gen­er­al elec­tion.
A four-way con­test, which fea­tured Left-wing activist Cor­nel West also run­ning as an inde­pen­dent, put Kennedy slight­ly low­er. That hypo­thet­i­cal showed Biden at 36% sup­port, Trump at 35%, Kennedy at 19%, and West at 6%.
Cru­cial­ly for Kennedy, rough­ly a third of inde­pen­dents as well as a third of younger vot­ers under the age of 35 lean toward his can­di­da­cy across each sce­nario. And the poll shows he has dou­ble-dig­it sup­port among minor­i­ty groups, includ­ing around a third of His­pan­ic vot­ers.
“With minor­i­ty and younger vot­ers seem­ing intrigued, Kennedy, for now, enjoys the kind of demo­graph­ic sup­port his charis­mat­ic father and uncles gen­er­at­ed decades ago,” said Quin­nip­i­ac Uni­ver­si­ty polling ana­lyst Tim Mal­loy.
