(SNews) – Robert F. Kennedy Jr. just put President Joe Biden on notice by surging among Democrat primary voters, a new poll has revealed.
Kennedy has seen a boost in Biden’s strongest state.
Biden bet it all on South Carolina four years ago and doubled down this year.
For putting him over the top four years ago, Biden rewarded South Carolina by making them the state to hold the first Democrat primary.
That means huge money for local TV stations, political consultants, and other Democrat donors.
But in doing so, Biden angered New Hampshire and Iowa Democrats who historically went first.
Those states are not backing down and may even keep Biden off the ballot.
Politics is about momentum and if Biden cedes those states to Kennedy, and underperforms in South Carolina, all bets are off.
RFK Jr. now has the support of 24 percent of likely Democrat primary voters in South Carolina which is a lot against a sitting president.
“In a three-way election today, Biden leads 55% to Kennedy’s 24%,” pollster Jeremy Zogby said.

Marianne Williamson is at five percent, and 16 percent were undecided.
In a head-to-head matchup between Biden and Kennedy, it gets worse for Joe, Biden’s lead is only 10 points.
This comes after the media’s relentless anti-Kennedy campaign.

Mr. Kennedy dropping truth bombs, educating, and pulling back the veil for us in Charleston last night, August 16th, 2023. I think we were a good class.
