The Vice President has high hopes for her future. But they all just came crashing down.
And Kamala Harris had a major meltdown after being exposed by this high-profile Republican.
It’s no secret that Joe Biden has some of the lowest approval ratings of any politician in the country.
At a dismal 41.4%, according to FiveThirtyEight, a vast majority of Americans are not confident in his ability to serve the nation.
If he is re-elected, Biden will be 82 years old – this raises concerns of whether he’ll make it through to the end.
Biden should have a popular and competent alternative should he be unable to serve, his Vice President.
Unfortunately, Vice President Kamala Harris has been an unmitigated disaster, and her approval numbers are even worse than Biden’s at 39.8% according FiveThirtyEight.
And now Republicans are sounding the alarm on how terrible a hypothetical “Harris administration” would be.
“We cannot have Kamala Harris as president. We can’t chance this,” Republican candidate Nikki Haley told Fox News host Maria Bartiromo.
“We have to make sure we have a new generational leader who will bring in not only Republicans, but Independents, suburban women, Hispanics, and the Asian community.
“We have to make sure we win this because the thought of Kamala Harris being president should send a chill up every American’s spine,” she added.
Haley, 51, has made age a central theme of her 2024 campaign, advocating for mental fitness testing for legislators above the age of 75.
Since the beginning of her campaign, she has also suggested that Biden is unlikely to survive a second term, in which he would be 86 by the end.
“America is not past our prime. It’s just that our politicians are past theirs,” Haley said at her campaign launch in February.
Haley admitted to Tucker Carlson at the Family Leadership Summit last month that she has been harping on the issue, but added, “We can’t afford a President Kamala Harris. I will say that over and over again.”
Biden is 80 years old, while former President Donald Trump is 77. If both men be their party’s nominee in 2024, as polls indicate is likely, they will be the oldest candidates in US history.
Biden is already the oldest commander-in-chief the United States has ever had. If he wins a second term next year, he will fall just short of joining the top ten list of the world’s longest-serving leaders.
While the president and his team have presented his age as a reflection of his decades of expertise, poll after poll indicates that it may be a negative for his reelection prospects.
