Vice President Kamala Harris apparently isn’t inspiring Americans or even those who voted for her, if recent polls are remotely accurate.
As the Washington Examiner’s Conn Carroll wrote in a recent piece, some within the Biden administration have labeled the vice president, at this point in time, as “completely irrelevant,” which corroborates with the fact that she’s seldom seen with the president like she was earlier this year.
With approval ratings now at a dismal 28%, it’s no surprise that President Joe Biden’s handlers are presumably keeping him away from the failing politician, especially as he struggles on the same front, scoring only a 38% approval rating.
Carroll pointed out that Harris’ downfall seemed to start after she was tasked with overseeing the “root causes” of the immigration issue at the southern U.S. border, a task she — by accounts from both sides of the political aisle — has grossly failed at handling.
The writer went on to argue that because of Biden’s border policies, which in reality was simply a reversal of all of former President Donald Trump’s policies that actually worked, has led to an unwinnable scenario for Harris, suggesting that she knows this and has essentially purposely distanced herself on the issue.
“As long as migrants from around the world know they will be released into the United States to go wherever they want after they are caught at the border, only more will come. But Harris can’t admit this. So her mission to go to Central America and convince people to stay home was doomed to fail before she ever left,” Carroll wrote.
As Fox News contributor Joe Concha recently pointed out, Harris’s “astounding” low approval rating means serious trouble for the Biden administration in the months and years to come.
“This was supposed to be a historic candidate in Kamala Harris who would be handed the bottom by an 80-something-year-old Joe Biden where he says ‘okay I’ve righted the country and now I’m going to pass it on to my Vice President.’ If you’re the Democratic Party how could you possibly put her up as the nominee right now when not even three in 10 Americans approve of the job she’s doing and it’s impossible to find her?” Concha said recently.
He’s right, and the Democratic Party can’t possibly be willing to hand her the reigns, even as, for now, she’s the de facto Democratic presidential nominee in 2024, assuming Biden decides to hang it up.
