Hillary Clinton and Kamala Harris are about to have a major fight.
This conflict has been building for several years.
Hillary Clinton just gave Kamala Harris one big thing to worry about.
The New York Times featured the latest installment of national Democrats airing their grievances with the fact that Kamala Harris proved herself as not ready for primetime in a national campaign.
In that article a notable passage quoted two Hillary Clinton associates saying Hillary does not believe Harris has what it takes to win a general election if Joe Biden decides not to seek re-election.
“Two Democrats recalled private conversations in which former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton lamented that Ms. Harris could not win because she does not have the political instincts to clear a primary field,” The New York Times exclusively reported.
It seemed like it was out of the blue for Clinton to take a shot at Harris.
But new polling data from Premise found that without Joe Biden, Kamala Harris and Hillary Clinton are by far and away the two frontrunners for the nomination.
The Hill exclusively reports:
Former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton trails only Vice President Harris in a hypothetical 2024 Democratic primary survey without President Biden, topping a field that includes both new names and familiar faces.
In the poll of 2,194 people, Harris topped a Democratic field without Biden with 32 percent support. Clinton, who has run for president twice, garnered 20 percent support in the survey, which had a 3 percentage point margin of error.
The two front-runners were trailed by the likes of Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) at 11, 10 and 8 percent, respectively. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and former Georgia gubernatorial nominee Stacey Abrams were the only other potential Democratic candidates to receive more than 4 percent support in the poll.
Hillary Clinton and her team understand that taking the nomination away from Harris must be executed with the utmost care.
Joe Biden only picked Harris as his running mate because as a black woman she satisfied the identity politics demands of the woke mob that makes up the Democrat Party base.
Black women and young Americans are some of the Democrats’ most loyal voters and an older white woman like Hillary bigfooting Kamala Harris for the nomination will not go over well.
That’s why Hillary’s associates — likely with the blessing of Hillary herself — began seeding the corporate media with nuggets about how Harris is unelectable because she is unpopular and lacks the skills to go the distance.
FiveThirtyEight.com shows Harris’s approval rating at 39 percent owed in large part to Harris’s highest-profile job for Biden being her disastrous tenure as border czar.
Clinton owns plenty of material on Harris to land the punch that Harris can’t win.
And Clinton is clearly keeping her options open in case Biden decides not to run in 2024.
