According to new reports, more and more high-powered Democrats are becoming increasingly concerned that Vide-President Kamala Harris may not have what it takes to beat even the weakest Republican candidate in 2024.
And as The Hill reports polls are showing her popularity continuing to sink at an alarming rate:
In a trio of recent surveys, Harris earned a combined unfavorable rating of 46 percent, according to an aggregate average compiled by RealClearPolitics. That number is 3 points below Biden’s 43 percent in the same category.
In an Economist-YouGov poll conducted from July 24 to 27, Harris’s unfavorable figure reached 48 percent.
A midterm visit by the vice president to a congressional district is generally a way to create crowds and win attention for candidates, but Harris’s polling numbers are raising questions about how she might be used as Democrats seek to hold on to slim majorities in the House and Senate.
“As of right now, I think she has the potential of doing more harm than good for some of these candidates,” said one Democratic strategist. “My sense is she’ll probably raise a lot of money and maybe she’ll go to some specific districts, but they’ll have to be really strategic with her.”
With Kamala’s numbers continuing to circle the drain, will Democrats be forced to pull the plug on her candidacy before a potential 2024 run for President, or will they be left with no choice but to support her? Let us know what you think in the comments below.
