Kamala Harris badly wants to run for president.
But many Democrats do not think she can beat Donald Trump.
And Kamala Harris got the shock of her life when she saw these surprise 2024 poll numbers.
When Joe Biden picked Kamala Harris as his vice president, Biden promised to serve as a transition figure to the next generation of Democrats.
That led many to assume that Biden would only serve one term as president and step aside.
However, Joe Biden claims he is planning to run for re-election in 2024 when he will be 82 years old on Inauguration Day should Biden win a second term.
Biden made that promise about running for re-election during his first press conference when his poll numbers were still above 50 percent.
Thanks to Biden’s socialist spending helping to push inflation to the highest level in three decades, Biden’s open borders policies allowing an invasion of illegal aliens into the country and Biden’s botched withdrawal from Afghanistan, Biden’s political standing collapsed.
The Real Clear Politics polling average shows Biden hovering at a 41 percent approval rating with 52 percent disapproving.
That wasn’t even the worst polling news of the week for Joe Biden.
A brand-new Hill/HarrisX poll found 61 percent of registered voters believe Biden should not seek re-election in 2024 and let another candidate run in his place.
That number included 37 percent of Democrats that wanted Biden to decline to run for re-election against 45 percent of Democrats that believed Biden should put himself on the ballot again.
The Hill reported:
Sixty-one percent of registered voters in the Nov. 9-10 survey said Biden should make way for another figure in 2024. By contrast, 24 percent of respondents said he should run for president again and 15 percent they were unsure. A plurality of Democrats, 45 percent, said they want Biden to run again while 37 percent said he should move aside for someone else and 18 percent are unsure. Eighty-seven percent of Republicans and 59 percent of independents said Biden, who would be 81 in 2024, should make way for another presidential candidate in 2024.
That was the first piece of good news Kamala Harris received in months.
CNN and POLITICO published stories this week filled with leaks from inside the Biden administration and outside about how other Democrats view Harris as a weak candidate and are not afraid to challenge her in a primary.
Harris’ best chance to secure the nomination is as the sitting vice president – which Harris may not be in 2028 should Biden run for re-election and lose.
Should Biden run and lose in 2024 then Harris would just be an also-ran vice president from a defeated ticket.
Polls showing the overwhelming majority of voters wanting Biden to step down could convince Democrats that Joe Biden is not a viable candidate in 2024.
If Kamala Harris ran in the Democrat primary in 2024 her status as the first black female sitting vice president might be too much for any other candidate to overcome.
