The Democratic Party has two very major problems to deal with between now and the 2024 presidential campaign season, and one of them includes what it’s going to do about Vice President Kamala Harris.
The vice president’s polling numbers remain in the toilet, as Breitbart reported.
Embarrassingly enough, a Rasmussen Reports poll found that only 39% of likely voters want to see her run again with President Joe Biden.
Even worse, 48% of respondents said they do not want to see her run for another term with President Biden. Her approval numbers have also remained low and unimpressive for the length of her time in the White House.
Breaking down the results by party line provided predictable and somewhat surprising results.
Breitbart noted: “Divided by party, 68 percent of Republican respondents said they would not want Harris to run as the vice president on the 2024 ticket, while 63 percent of Democrat respondents said Harris should be the running mate.”
“However, with independents, 32 percent said she would be the running mate, while a majority (51 percent) think she should not be. Only seventeen percent were not sure,” Breitbart added.

Fifty-five percent said they view Harris unfavorably, and the former California attorney general is failing across the board in the favorability department.
That’s generally not favorable for one’s political career, especially at the top of the political heap.
Dems turning on her
There have been more than whispers from within the Democratic Party regarding their concerns about her odds of being competitive in 2024, especially with a scandal-ridden president like Biden.
“I think she’s a good person with a good heart who can lead the country. But I don’t know that the people who have to make that happen feel that way right now. I don’t know that she has what it takes to get over the hump in our present environment,” one Dem strategist said.
That was polite-speak for “Her political brand is an absolute dumpster fire, and she doesn’t stand a remote chance of winning.”
The 2024 presidential election will certainly be one for the history books. The future of this great nation will be up for grabs, and thankfully, Republicans have far tougher candidates than Democrats.
