Joe Biden hand-picked Kamala Harris as the heiress apparent.
But now all hell is breaking loose.
Kamala Harris looked at one poll and broke down knowing it was all over.
NBC’s measured vice presidents’ favorability ratings since Al Gore in 1993.
And Kamala Harris is the least popular vice president in the last 28 years.
NBC pollster Bill McInturff also noted that Harris had the worst “thermometer ratings” – meaning the difference between very negative and very positive rating – of any vice president since 1993.
“VP Harris has lowest feeling thermometer of any first year VP going back to Gore in 1993 with an unprecedented ‘very negative’ rating on @NBCNews survey tracking.”

The corporate media plays up Kamala Harris like she is a political force of nature like Barack Obama, Ronald Reagan or Margaret Thatcher.
In reality, Harris is a politically inept bumbler that essentially failed her way upwards her entire career.
Harris dropped out of the 2020 presidential race after surging to first place when Americans rejected her as an inauthentic fraud that couldn’t decide what she believed or defend whatever position she took on any given day.
Kamala Harris ended her presidential campaign in late November 2019 with her fundraising running on fumes and her poll numbers cratering.
In some ways, Harris dropping out months before the first vote saved her political viability.
Had Harris trudged through to the Iowa caucus she likely would have finished in the low single-digits and dropped out of the race as a damaged also-ran.
Democrats hoped that Harris’ time as vice president would serve to reboot her image in the minds of the voters.
That prospect quickly evaporated after Joe Biden named Kamala Harris his border czar.
Harris ignored the border for months as record numbers of illegal aliens – thousands of whom carried COVID-19 – poured into the country.
The vice president tried to put the crisis to rest with a trip to South America that only generated mockery and more negative headlines about Harris’ refusal to answer a simple question about when she planned on visiting the southern border.
Kamala Harris was never able to establish a connection with the public.
Harris’ lack of authenticity meant her only chance to pitch herself as a potential president to the American people was through racking up achievements and projecting competence.
Harris’ failure at the border and the vice president’s subsequent run for cover during the Afghanistan fiasco – where the public did not see or hear from Harris for days on end – closed off that path to the presidency.
Nervous Democrats look at Harris’ inability to score political victories, Harris’ abysmal 2020 campaign, and her sinking poll numbers and wonder if they bet on the wrong horse in 2024.
And in the likely event that Joe Biden chooses not to seek re-election, Democrats could seek a challenger to knock off Kamala Harris – who they may regard as a doomed nominee.
