RFK offers Biden wacky "no spoiler" deal.

God I love the entertainment business...sorry I mean't the news business.

One thing Robert F has right, he's going to spoil Joe's chances. There's no killing the Dark Lord.

RFK Jr. offers Biden wacky ‘no spoiler’ deal in desperate bid to battle Trump for White House

Independent presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. needled President Biden Wednesday, offering a zany “no spoiler” agreement that whichever of the two candidates is least likely to defeat Donald Trump drops out of the race in October.

During a news conference in Brooklyn, the 70-year-old RFK Jr. proposed that he and Biden co-fund a 50-state poll of at least 30,000 likely voters to determine which candidate is the true “spoiler” who would ensure a victory for the 45th president by continuing to campaign.

“Ultimately, I think what we all want in this election is [for] Americans not to feel like they have to vote out of fear,” Kennedy told reporters. “That they feel like they can vote out of hope. And that is only going to happen if there’s a two-way race between me and President Trump or me and President Biden.”

The poll would measure the likelihood both of Kennedy defeating Trump, 77, in a head-to-head race and Biden, 81, repeating his 2020 victory over his Republican rival.

The Democratic National Committee quickly pooh-poohed the proposal from Kennedy, claiming he was there as a Trump ally.

"He is monitoring the situation closely, so is his team," Jean-Pierre said at her regular briefing when asked why Biden, 81, hasn't personally addressed the chaos since answering a reporter's shouted question on April 22 following an Earth Day event in Virginia.

“Robert F. Kennedy Jr is a spoiler- recruited by the MAGA GOP and propped up by Trump’s largest donor. His ‘Veep’-like performance today does nothing to dispel that notion- it only reinforces how deeply unserious his campaign is,” DNC spokesperson Matt Corridoni told The Post in a statement.

But polls do show that Kennedy has significant support against Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee.

At Wednesday’s event, the Kennedy campaign cited a 50-state poll conducted by John Zogby Strategies that indicated the independent would win a two-way race against Biden and Trump.

In the survey, which polled over 26,000 people, Kennedy won 367 electoral votes to Biden’s 171. Against Trump, RFK Jr. barely obtained the magic number of 270 electoral votes.

In the widely expected Trump-Biden rematch, the 45th president knocked off his successor by 294 electoral votes to 244, according to Zogby.

The largest 50-state poll of the 2024 cycle indicates Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is the only alternative to four more years of Donald Trump.

RFK Jr. campaign manager Amaryllis Kennedy had stronger words urging Biden to bow out, saying the incumbent “can not win” Nov. 5, “not in a two-way [race], not in a three-way [race],”

Jeremy Zogby, managing partner of John Zogby Strategies, told The Post that “the numbers speak for themselves” and that Kennedy has been polling well “going back over a year.”

“I’ve conducted 30 something polls and I’ve seen him consistently draw from both parties, equally… When you put it all together he’s polling pretty equally,” Zogby added.

“He’s building a pretty substantial coalition of a mosaic of the political landscape.”
