The recent announcement of Robert Kennedy Jr.'s running mate in his independent presidential campaign has reportedly caused a significant stir within the Democratic Party.

The party, which has historically been friendly towards the Kennedy family, is now said to be experiencing its "worst nightmare," according to experts who spoke with Fox News Digital.

Matt Keelen, a Republican strategist and principal at The Vogel Group, commented on the situation, stating, "Only in the new Socialist Democratic Party, they should change their name to reflect who they really are now, would the son of Robert F Kennedy and nephew of Democrat icon JFK be forced from the party that has used their name for decades, all because he had the gall to point out the obvious, Joe Biden is not prepared to lead this country for four more years." He added, "Anyone with eyes knows that as a fact."

Kennedy, a member of one of the most prominent Democratic families in American history, has become a popular target for the left following his presidential candidacy announcement. His decision to select tech entrepreneur Nicole Shanahan as his running mate led to a call hosted by the Democratic National Committee (DNC), which many interpreted as a sign of the party's panic.

Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. Austin Davis said on the call, "We are doing everything in our power to get President Biden and Vice President Harris re-elected. It's critical that we take seriously every possible obstacle to that goal. And let me be clear, that's exactly what Robert F. Kennedy is in this election. He's a spoiler."

Following this, NBC News reported that Democrats are internally "freaked out" over Kennedy's candidacy as he continues to gain momentum and qualify for more state ballots.

On St. Patrick's Day, several Kennedy family members posted a photo with President Biden at the White House, which many interpreted as a move to undermine Kennedy Jr. In recent weeks, several Democratic strategists have been active on social media, attacking the independent candidate and attempting to link him to Donald Trump.

Democratic strategist Lis Smith, who previously led Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg's 2020 campaign and is currently consulting for the DNC, referred to Kennedy as a "spoiler" in a series of posts following Kennedy's Tuesday speech. She also shared a video accusing Shanahan of buying her place on the ticket by donating millions to boost Kennedy before she was named his running mate.

Recent polls suggest that Kennedy, Stein, and independent candidate Dr. Cornel West could draw significant support from both Biden and Trump, with Biden potentially losing the most votes.

Keelen cited the Biden administration's refusal to provide RFK Jr. with Secret Service protection as further evidence of Kennedy's fall from grace within the Democratic Party. He said, "RFK jr was run out of the party by the DNC that rigged yet another primary election – see 2016 – for Hillary, 2020 for Joe, 2024 for Joe again. President Biden and his team have also acted shamefully in not granting Secret Service protection to Kennedy despite growing threats and the fact that both of his relatives were gun downed by mad men. Absolutely unbelievable."

Experts told Fox News Digital that the Democratic Party's efforts to keep Kennedy, who is now running as an independent, out of the Democratic primary and off the ballot as a third-party candidate contradict their stated goal of protecting democracy.

Marc Lotter, former special assistant to the president and former director of strategic communications for Trump's 2020 campaign, told Fox News Digital, "Since Democrats can’t win on Joe Biden’s policy, and they can’t win on Joe Biden’s record, they have to stack the deck by giving Americans fewer choices at the ballot box. There is simply no depth that Democrats won’t sink to in their quest to keep power."

David Avella, GOP strategist and GOPAC chairman, suggested that part of the Democrats' concern about Kennedy is that demographics within the Democratic Party that have been turning away from Biden are gravitating towards Kennedy's positions.

Avella said, "President Biden and Democrats have taken for granted young voters, self-described moderates and minorities to the point that they are at the center of Kennedy's base of support. Thus, Kennedy being on the ballot in MI, WI, PA, GA and AZ is the Democrats' worst nightmare and why they are attempting to undercut democracy and select who is on general election ballot."
