Ramaswamy Faces Hurdles In GOP Primaries

(NationalUSNews.com) — Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy is facing heavy backlash for his statements regarding the September 11th terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center, in which he implied United States federal agents were on the planes used in the attack.

Ramaswamy denies making such a statement and is instead adamant that he was discussing the January 6th storming of the Capitol. This controversial event remains at the center of national discourse. According to Ramaswamy, he’s being misquoted intentionally and never made any comments questioning the authenticity of the September 11th tragedy.

Ramaswamy is polling well among Republican and independent voters and remains one of the most popular candidates in next year’s election. Ramaswamy’s alleged comments regarding federal agents being at the Capitol during the January 6th incident echo a common GOP sentiment and are unlikely to lose the presidential hopeful any support. Despite his surge in popularity in recent weeks, Ramaswamy seems unlikely to secure the GOP nomination for the presidential election, as he lacks political experience and polls over 20 points behind the Republican favorite, Donald Trump. Trump commented on Ramaswamy and even hinted at bringing Ramaswamy into his cabinet if reelected in next year’s election.

Other Republicans praise Ramaswamy, including a former spokeswoman for Donald Trump, Kayleigh McEnany. McEnany claims that Vivek Ramaswamy is growing in popularity due to his “authentic” personality, which many voters seem to agree with. Ramaswamy’s popularity has surged over the past few weeks, with numerous media outlets drawing attention to the millennial presidential candidate and highlighting his proposed policies. Ramaswamy’s popularity could ensure a position in the next Republican administration regardless of which Republican wins the nomination, as the GOP hopeful’s growing popularity is alarming to each of the Republicans running in the election.

One such candidate is Ron DeSantis, who tied with Ramaswamy in a recent poll, indicating that DeSantis’s presidential campaign is losing momentum among voters. The PAC that endorsed DeSantis, Never Back Down, accidentally leaked a memo outlining a debate strategy for the Florida Governor. The plan included attacking Ramaswamy as a candidate, likely due to his growing popularity. Despite his position as the third most popular candidate among the GOP, Ramaswamy’s chances of winning next year’s election remain incredibly slim.
