Kamala Harris is suffering through the most difficult stretch of her political career.
It does not look like matters will turn around anytime soon.
Now all hell broke loose when Kamala Harris saw these scary poll numbers.
New Hampshire is a key battleground state in the 2022 and 2024 elections.
Democrat Senator Maggie Hasan figures to face one of the toughest re-election fights in the country – and one that could determine which party controls the Senate – against likely Republican nominee, the popular Governor Chris Sununu.
The state figures to be in play in the 2024 general election and New Hampshire always plays an outsized role in the presidential nominating process by virtue of the Granite State’s status as the first-in-the-nation primary.
Democrats’ fortunes in New Hampshire do not look good as Kamala Harris and Joe Biden’s popularity tanked in New Hampshire over the last six months.
The latest University of New Hampshire Granite State Poll found Kamala Harris’ poll numbers collapsed by 16 points with just 34 percent of New Hampshire residents holding a favorable view of Harris.
“Only 34% of New Hampshire residents have afavorable opinion of Vice President Kamala Harris,51% have anunfavorable opinion ofher,12% are neutral, and 3% are unsure. Harris’s net favorability rating is -17, down from -1 in January. Harris is popular amongDemocrats (+67 net favor ability rating) but is somewhat unpopular among Independents (-28) and very unpopular among Republicans(-96),” the release accompanying the poll read.
Biden is also underwater with the poll finding just 38 percent of New Hampshire residents hold a favorable opinion of Biden with 48 percent disapproving.
But Harris’ numbers are the most concerning.
If Joe Biden does not run for president in 2024, most assumed Harris would get a free shot at the party’s presidential nomination.
As the sitting vice president and the first black female to run as a party nominee it would be difficult for Democrats to shunt Harris off to the sidelines.
But Harris’ poor poll numbers in New Hampshire could invite a primary challenge.
New Hampshire is a small state where a candidate does not need to raise tens of millions of dollars to run TV ads to win.
An underdog campaign can carry the day if the candidate is a skilled retail politician that establishes a connection with voters in diners and town hall events.
Harris’ unpopularity – and the fact that independents can vote in either party’s primary – means Harris may face competition in the Democrat primary, especially if the polling data shows Harris trailing Donald Trump or whoever else is favored to win the Republican nomination for president in 2024.
