Bad news for Biden…

A recent poll showed that Independent candidates appear to be hurting President Joe Biden and boosting former President Donald Trump when on the ballot in four critical battleground states.

Trump’s leads grow against Biden among likely voters in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan and North Carolina when Robert F. Kennedy Jr., independent Cornel West, and Green Party candidate Jill Stein are on the ballot, according to The Cook Political Report/BSG/GS Strategy Group survey.

With Kennedy and the other third-party candidates included in the poll, Trump’s margins grew from one to four points in Arizona; from two to three points in Michigan; from three to four points in Georgia; and from seven to eight points in North Carolina.

The poll found Kennedy notching 10% in Nevada, Arizona, and Georgia; 7% in Pennsylvania and Michigan; 8% in North Carolina; and 9% in Wisconsin.

The RealClearPolitics averages for each battleground state suggest Trump’s leads grow against Biden when Kennedy, West, and Stein are on the ballot in Arizona, Nevada, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, and Georgia.

Trump lost Arizona, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Georgia, and Michigan last cycle after having won them all in 2016. Nevada voted Democratic in both cycles, while Trump secured North Carolina in 2016 and 2020.
