Ramaswamy Launches Massive Campaign In Early Primary States

Using a $1 million ad buy in Iowa and New Hampshire, Republican presidential candidate Vivek Ramaswamy accuses lawmakers on both sides of the aisle of “driving us toward World War III.”

Many of Trump’s primary opponents were against nominating him because they believed he could not win the general election against President Biden, who enjoys support from the moderate and independent voters who are crucial in winning important swing states. However, new polling data has undermined that stance.

In a hypothetical battle in 2024, Trump leads Biden in critical swing states and nationally, according to polls by The New York Times, CNN, CBS News, and Emerson College.

The advertisement featured Ramaswamy pledging that as the next president, his sole duty is to the citizens of the United States and not another. He would prevent World War III, declare independence from communist China, and utilize our armed forces to defend our nation’s borders, not those of any foreign power.

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) has increasingly based his campaign for the nomination on the premise that he has produced victories and outcomes in Florida, while other Trump and his favorite candidates have suffered at the vote box. Recent polls, however, have cast doubt on the premise that Trump can’t beat Biden, even if he did lose to him in 2020.

Some conservatives believe Nikki Haley or DeSantis would be safer for the general election than Trump. In every swing state polled by the New York Times/Siena College, save Georgia, Haley outperformed Biden. In the New York Times/Siena poll, DeSantis performed better than Trump against Biden in Wisconsin but similarly to Trump or worse in all other swing states surveyed.

After the terrorist strike on Israel on October 7, Ramaswamy was vocal in warning the United States against escalating into World War III. On the issue of U.S. engagement in the conflict between Russia and Ukraine, he has been outspoken, putting him at odds with his fellow Republicans.
