Tucker Carlson got blindsided by what this woman revealed about him

Jun 6, 2024

Tucker Carlson is still one of the most influential voices on the Right.

Fox News hoped to cancel him by firing him over a year ago.

And now Tucker Carlson got blindsided by what this woman revealed about him.

Tucker Carlson gets an unlikely vote of confidence 

Robert F. Kennedy Jr. named Silicon Valley lawyer Nicole Shanahan as his Vice-Presidential nominee.

Naming Shanahan – who is avowed lefty – as his running mate appeared to be Kennedy throwing in the towel on trying to siphon off votes from Donald Trump.

Polls also showed that Kennedy pulled more voters from Joe Biden than Trump.

However, it doesn’t look like Kennedy is ready to give up entirely on trying to cost Donald Trump the election.

Shanahan appeared at an event in Maine where she attempted to appeal to Trump voters by telling a crowd that she was simpatico with Tucker Carlson.

“I’m sitting across from Tucker, and he and I are so on the same page in every single way,” Shanahan stated.

“This is a state with independent-minded people. This is a state that understands issues, not rhetoric,” Shanahan added.

Why Maine?

Maine is one of two states – Nebraska being the other – that allocates its Electoral College votes by Congressional District.

In both 2016 and 2020, Donald Trump picked up an Electoral College vote by winning Maine’s rural Second Congressional District.

Shanahan appearance in Maine and her profession of support for Tucker Carlson needs to be seen through that prism.

There is a scenario where the Electoral College ends in a 269 to 269 tie.

If Donald Trump wins Nebraska’s Second Congressional District and sweeps that state’s Electoral College votes and Biden wins Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin – polls show Trump’s lead in all three states is within the margin of error – and Kennedy takes enough votes to give Biden Maine’s Second Congressional District, the Electoral College is deadlocked.

That throws the election to the House of Representatives, where each state delegation casts a vote to pick the President.

The media and Democrats would then wage an insane pressure campaign to force RINOs to vote with Democrats to put Biden back in the White House.

RFK’s poll numbers

Kennedy started out the campaign with very high favorable numbers on the right.

When Kennedy was challenging Joe Biden for the Democrat Party nomination for President, he appeared routinely on conservative media where he promised to seal the border.

Kennedy was also a strong voice in opposition to COVID mandates and forced vaccination.

But once Kennedy began running as an Independent, Republicans began to come home to Trump, understanding that a second Biden administration poses an existential threat to the country and that a vote for Kennedy was essentially a vote for Biden.

The Real Clear Politics polling average shows Trump leading Biden by 0.6 points in a head-to-head matchup.

Trump leads Biden by 1.9 points with Kennedy’s name included on the ballot.

Shanahan shout-out to Tucker Carlson looks to be part of a course correction on the part of the Kennedy campaign.
