(AURN News) – Famed scholar and civil rights activist Cornel West continues his campaign for the White House. Recently his campaign announced that he will appear on Utah’s election ballots. The former Harvard and Princeton professor is campaigning to prioritize “people over profit and love over fear,” according to his campaign.

“We need you to be part and parcel of wrestling with this corporate duopoly, this two-party system that impedes,” West said in a campaign video.

“It gets in the way of the unleashing of the kind of policies of abolishing poverty and homelessness, of dealing with working wages, cutting back on militarism, and most importantly, trying to ensure that the best of who we are as a people can be more manifest can, be more concrete because the crisis is real,” he said.

West’s bid comes just over 10 months after he first officially launched his run for the nation’s highest office. His calls for sweeping social and economic reforms just may resonate with some younger voters, a crucial voting bloc this November. A new Rasmussen poll found that 28% of likely U.S. voters under 40 say they are likely to vote for a third-party candidate in the 2024 presidential race. And with polling between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump as close as it is, that 28% will have a major impact this fall.
