SEAN HANNITY (HOST): Mark, there's been a lot of speculation. "Oh, okay, will RFK Jr. help Republicans or help Democrats? Will he help Biden or will he help Trump? Okay, some conservatives kind of liked his position on vaccines. Besides that I would say that this is probably even a little to the left of Joe Biden. So in a three-person race, who is he more likely to take votes from?

MARK PENN (GUEST): I think right now when you look at the polls, actually for a kook, he's pretty well-liked and he's taken about 15% of the vote and he's taken it almost equally from both. Because he's got a lot of airtime with conservatives, as you point out, on vaccines and some of these issues, maybe a point more from Biden, but very close, pretty equal.
