Democrats have serious buyer’s remorse about Joe Biden picking Kamala Harris as his running mate.
Harris’s tenure in office has seen one debacle after another unfold.
And Kamala Harris will never recover from this humiliating insult.
Since Kamala Harris is the vice president, Harris should be the heiress apparent in the Democrat Party.
But many in the party have zero desire to see Harris as the candidate in 2024 or 2028 as polls show she is the most unpopular vice president in history.
The website FiveThirtyEight.com shows just 39 percent of Americans approve of Harris.
Harris failed in her policy assignments – she is the border czar and illegal aliens and fentanyl pour across the border unimpeded – and on a personal level.
Harris’s word salads are something out of a “Saturday Night Live” skit and her signature cackle is something a villain in a Disney movie would uncork.
Democrats know they have a Harris problem and many were happy to see that California Governor Gavin Newsom agreed to debate Florida Governor Ron DeSantis this fall in a televised contest moderated by Fox News Channel’s Sean Hannity.
This debate would serve as a shadow audition for Newsom to show party leaders and donors that he can hold his own against one of the GOP’s top stars.
But Harris’s allies rightly see this debate as a threat to Harris’s next-in-line status in the Democrat Party.
“Though Biden’s camp no longer sees Newsom as a wannabe challenger — and some in Biden’s orbit praise him for acting as a top campaign surrogate — Newsom’s plan to debate Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis on television carries more risk than potential reward, these people say,” NBC News exclusively reports. “That has caused consternation within Biden’s operation and among Vice President Kamala Harris’ allies.”
The Harris camp bristles at Newsom – Harris’s home-state governor – and his not-so-subtle attempt to shove her aside.
“Harris allies take particular umbrage at what they see as Newsom’s attempt to position himself for the 2028 Democratic presidential primarily at her expense,” NBC also reported.
“It’s disrespectful,” a Harris advisor told NBC News. “Joe Biden is running with Kamala Harris. That’s the Democratic ticket.”
Joe Biden didn’t pick Harris because of her record of achievement or because she built a base of support during her campaign for president.
Harris had neither as she was in the Senate minority for just three years, and she dropped out of the presidential race months before the first votes with her poll numbers near zero.
Joe Biden only picked Harris because she checked the right boxes for the woke voters obsessed with identity politics.
But Harris’s lack of a base, popular appeal or stature earned due to a record of policy victories means Harris is easily replaceable.
And the Harris camp’s realization that Harris’s political future is largely out of her hands is leading to massive frustration.
