It’s no secret that the Democrats are facing a problem with Vice President Kamala Harris. Despite her abysmal approval ratings, President Joe Biden has decided to keep her as his running mate for the 2024 election. However, even the Democrats themselves seem to have doubts about whether Harris is the best choice. Just ask Speaker Emerita Nancy Pelosi.
In an interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper, Pelosi was asked directly if Harris is the best running mate for Biden. Her response was far from inspiring. She simply replied that Biden “thinks so,” as if his opinion is the only one that matters. Well, that’s certainly reassuring.
But the lack of confidence in Harris doesn’t stop with Pelosi. House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries was also asked about Harris in a recent interview. Instead of providing a straightforward answer, he danced around the question and proceeded to sing the praises of the Biden administration. It seems like whenever the Democrats are confronted with the truth, they quickly change the subject to avoid any uncomfortable conversations.
And let’s talk about the elephant in the room – the border crisis. Harris was appointed as the border czar back in March, yet the number of illegal crossings has reached an all-time high. The Biden administration’s handling of the border issue has been a complete failure, and Harris has done nothing to address the root cause of the problem. It’s clear that she is not fit for the task.
But it’s not just the border crisis that Harris has failed to handle. Her overall approval ratings are abysmal. According to recent polls, she has a 40.8 percent approval rating, while 56.5 percent of Americans disapprove of her performance. And a poll by The Economist/YouGov showed that a majority of registered voters have an unfavorable view of her, with 57 percent expressing their disapproval.
Even within the Democratic Party, doubts about Harris are growing. Some Democrats are calling for a primary challenge, questioning whether she is the best choice for the 2024 election. And let’s not forget the speculation about Biden’s own decision to run for reelection. There are concerns about his age and mental capabilities, which could lead to a different running mate altogether.
The bottom line is that Harris is simply not cutting it as vice president. Her lack of accomplishments and inability to address major issues like the border crisis are clear indications of her incompetence. The Democrats would be wise to consider other options if they want any chance of winning in 2024. Simply put, Harris is not the best running mate for Biden, and it’s time for the Democrats to face the truth.
