Co-founder of RFK Jr. Super PAC, Tony Lyons, said that the Democrat-turned-Independent presidential candidate is polling very well with voters under 45. 

"He's doing so incredibly well with people under 45," Lyons said on the "Furthermore with Amanda Head" podcast. "So if the election was held now, recent polling showed that he would win. He would beat both Biden and Trump with people just under 45."

Lyons further asserted that Kennedy needs to focus on appealing to the Baby Boomer generation and that Facebook is shadow banning his attempt to reach them. 

Former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden both agreed on Wednesday to participate in two presidential debates outside of the traditional debates hosted by the non-partisan Commission on Presidential Debates. 

Kennedy said he was being purposely left out of the debates, which he claims would be between two candidates that most of the country does not want. 

"Clearly, they are panicked to have him on the stage because the contrast between Bobby Kennedy and his competitors, I think, would be really, really dramatic," Lyons said.
