Joe Biden just learned some tragic news that has Democrats slamming the panic button

Joe Biden isn’t in good shape.

Biden’s allies are worried he may have suffered a fatal blow.

Joe Biden just learned some tragic news that has Democrats slamming the panic button.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. gains ballot access in key swing states 

Joe Biden is going to need everything to break right if he wants to win re-election.

Polls show he is a historically unpopular incumbent and that he trails Donald Trump across the board on the issues most important to voters and in the horse race polling.

If Biden wants to stage a comeback, it’s going to be even more of an uphill climb.

That’s because Independent candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr. gained ballot access in the critical battlegrounds of Arizona and Georgia.

That could prove fatal to Joe Biden’s chances.

Polls show Kennedy takes more votes from Biden than Trump

In the 2016 election, the Green and  Libertarian Party candidates Jill Stein and Gary Johnson won around five percent of the vote.

That was the best showing for third-party candidates since Ross Perot in 1996.

Many Democrats blamed third party candidates for costing Hillary Clinton the White House the way they blamed Ralph Nader for helping George W. Bush win in 2000.

Ballot access is always the big hurdle third-party candidates face.

The Democrat and Republican Parties control the monopoly on ballot access at the state level and make it as hard as humanly possible for other parties to get their candidates on the ballot.

Kennedy winning access in Arizona and Georgia may prove decisive in the 2024 election.

Biden only carried Arizona and Georgia by about 12,000 votes each in 2020.

New polls from Emerson and the Hill show Donald Trump holding a larger lead over Joe Biden once Kennedy and other third-party candidates get factored into the race.

Trump’s path to victory

Should Donald Trump flip Arizona and Georgia, he would only need to win one more state to recapture the White House.

The Hill and Emerson’s polls find that Trump would also beat Biden in Michigan, Nevada, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin in head-to-head and multi-candidate races.

If Kennedy gets on the ballot in all the key swing states, that crucial segment of voters who dislike both Joe Biden and Donald Trump will have another option.

And without those voters being forced to pick between the two, Joe Biden may have no path to victory.
