Kamala Harris has Democrats shaking in fear over the thought of what life will be like after 2024

Given her disastrous performance as Vice President it’s easy to wonder why Joe Biden ever picked Kamala Harris to be his running mate in the first place. 

Perhaps it was as simple as the fact that she is one of the few living humans who can make the Democrat President look serviceable by comparison. 

But now Kamala Harris has Democrats shaking in fear over the thought of what life will be like after 2024.

Is Kamala Harris ready for a promotion? 

Not much is expected out of Vice Presidents. 

However, President Joe Biden promised that Vice President Kamala Harris would be different. 

As the first female and partially black Vice President in American history, President Biden had something to prove with Harris. 

So he made her the first-ever “border czar.” 

But Harris has been an absentee czar, making only a couple photo-op stops at the southern border, and doing nothing as illegal alien crossings into the country exploded past record levels. 

Biden also sent Harris on a European tour where the Vice President repeatedly embarrassed herself and her country. 

With every cackling public appearance she makes, Harris’ appeal and popularity drops. 

But a new poll shows that despite her low approval and favorability, Harris may be the Democrat Party’s next option for the future. 

Harris is the future of the Democrat Party

A new survey conducted by Politico and Morning Consult indicates that Harris currently holds a solid lead over other potential Democrat Presidential candidates in a hypothetical 2028 primary.

Harris pulled in the support of 21% of Democrat primary voters – not exactly the type of showing Democrats would want from a sitting Vice President who is up for re-election, and the Party’s apparent frontrunner in four years time, but it is better than nothing.

Regardless, Harris’ level of support is still good enough to best the combined support of both California Democrat Governor Gavin Newsom and Biden Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg, who each garnered the support of 10% of those surveyed.

Senator Mark Kelly (D-AZ) and Michigan Democrat Governor Gretchen Whitmer each tallied 4% in the poll, while Pennsylvania Democrat Governor Josh Shapiro nabbed 3% – “someone else” was the option of choice for 7% of respondents.

Interestingly, while Harris appears to be the early frontrunner for the Democrat Presidential nomination in 2028, that may come as bad news for the Democrat Party. 

7-in-10 voters don’t believe Harris could win the White House 

That’s because the same survey that deemed Harris the frontrunner also indicated her favorability is underwater at negative-ten points. 

That’s only a single point better than President Biden. 

And it gets worse. 

Only 30% of respondents believe Harris could actually win the White House, should she be nominated.

When asked if Harris was a “strong leader” only 42% agreed, and half of that total only “somewhat agreed.” 

Harris is also underwater on trustworthiness, honesty, and being “too liberal.” 

More voters also believe Harris doesn’t “care about people like” them than do. 

The Democrat Vice President also scored poorly with voters on some of the most important individual issues. 

Respondents overwhelmingly do not trust Harris on the economy, China, and Israel. 

And the issue causing Harris the biggest headache is immigration, where 50% of voters don’t trust her – a full 10-points higher than the percentage of voters who do trust her on the issue. 

And perhaps worst of all for Harris, voters simply don’t believe she would be a good President.

Just 40% of respondents said they believe the Democrat Vice President would do a good job as President, but 51% said she would not. 

Obviously, the vast majority of Democrats believe Harris would be a fine President – while the vast majority of Republicans obviously believe she’d be a dismal failure. 

The key – as has been the case in virtually every modern Presidential election – is independents. 

When independent voters who took part in the survey were asked if Harris would make a good President, 51% said “no,” while just 34% said “yes.”
