Vice President Kamala Harris is facing criticism and unpopularity among Democrats and Republicans alike, with speculation about whether she will remain on President Biden’s 2024 ticket. Despite this, Biden has stated his intention to run again with Harris as his running mate.
Harris has been criticized for her lack of impact in the White House and her handling of the migration crisis at the southern border. However, Democratic strategists believe efforts to oust Harris in 2024 are unlikely to succeed.
- Harris’ polling numbers are consistently low, with only 39% of Americans approving of her job as vice president.
- Replacing a vice presidential nominee on a ticket is unprecedented, with President Gerald Ford being the only previous candidate to switch out a running mate.
- Biden’s choice of running mate may be crucial in the 2024 presidential election due to his advanced age.
- Harris’ unpopularity may affect her ability to rally key constituencies within the Democratic Party and Independents ahead of the 2024 election.
- Democratic strategists have come to the defense of Harris, noting that she has played a key role in the first two years of the Biden presidency.
Commentary: Despite criticism from both sides, it is unlikely that efforts to replace Harris on the 2024 ticket will succeed. While her popularity has suffered, her position as the first female and Black vice president in history remains a significant achievement.
The choice of running mate will undoubtedly be a crucial factor in the 2024 presidential election, particularly given Biden’s age.
Ultimately, it is up to the voters to decide whether Harris is the right choice to continue in this role, and it will be interesting to see how her performance is viewed as the campaign season heats up.
As passionate Republicans, we must stay focused on promoting our own values and candidates, rather than getting too caught up in the Democrats’ internal issues.
