The right’s recent embrace of Robert F. Kennedy Jr. could now backfire, as he recently became an outspoken critic of President Trump. Kennedy has called for the president’s removal from office, repeatedly cast doubts on the legitimacy of the 2016 election results, and criticized the administration’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic and its immigration policies. Kennedy’s rhetoric and recent activities have alienated some of his supporters on the right, who are now abandoning him and distancing themselves from his comments. This could have serious repercussions for Republicans in the upcoming election season. It could cost them votes, as Kennedy has become a divisive figure and his views are not shared by many on the right. Moreover, it could damage their standing among voters who could otherwise be persuaded to vote Republican. In short, Kennedy’s stance could end up costing the right more than it gains.
