Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Vice President Kamala Harris has her work cut out for her if she wants to succeed President Joe Biden at the White House in four or eight years. Harris may be Biden's heir apparent, but her unfavorable ratings, even among Biden supporters, are high for a politician hoping to move from Number One Observatory Circle to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. And she has not been helped by her own penchant for public missteps. Harris's average favorability rating hovers around 44%, while her unfavorability rating is 46%, according to polling aggregator RealClearPolitics. Biden's numbers are superior, with an average favorable-unfavorable rating of 52%-43%. For instance, an Economist/YouGov survey published this week exposed Harris's weaknesses with white men, especially those without a college degree, and white women without a college education.

Although her overall favorable-unfavorable rating was within the margin of error, she was not popular with people older than 45 or those earning less than $100,000 annually, Suffolk University Political Research Center Director David Paleologos told the Washington Examiner. She also struggled with respondents from the Midwest and independents.

A guess (obviously), but Harris will have a long, hard slog towards that political pinnacle. At this point, she's helped establish a new "normal" in her current position, and that's something worth having done.

August is coming. Trump will be back. None of this matters.

exposed Harris's weaknesses with white men, especially those without a college degree, and white women without a college education.

And I doubt a black woman will ever make significant inroads with that group.

In any case I'm not sure Harris was ever going to have a real shot at POTUS anyway. Sure, she has the ambition, but I don't think she has the chops.

"Harris's weaknesses with white men, especially those without a college degree, and white women without a college education."

Education is an existential threat to the GOP.

Someone said last week that bots were used on this site because the stupidity of some of the comments make it very hard to believe they come from real people.

Harris needs to start a war to win over the death cult, and pick on PoC to win over the racists.

Not Mexico because my gardeners have hedge trimmers and that seems like a nasty way to go.
We got our butt kicked in the ME, so not there.
Not China, they have nukes.
Not India, tech support is hard enough to staff now.

Maybe somewhere close like Haiti, so the troops can rape and pillage on the weekends only.
