Prediction: Kamala Harris will never be elected president. But that doesn’t mean she will never occupy the Oval Office.
The vice president’s approval ratings are slumping (she is now underwater in the RealClearPolitics average of polls) and – worse – she is taking the fall for President Biden’s foolish reversal of President Trump’s migrant policies.
The latest blow is a critical piece in Politico, based on interviews with 22 “current and former vice-presidential aides, administration officials and associates of Harris and Biden” that signals a White House at war with itself, and paints Harris as an unpopular and incapable public figure who has long presided over an “abusive” office environment.
It also may signal that Team Biden, nervous about crime, inflation and the border crisis, is throwing Team Harris under the bus.
Harris’s defenders, such as Fordham University’s Christina Greer, argue that she has been given an impossible portfolio.
