Biden Called Upon to Drop Harris as VP, Garland as AG and Do This Instead

Published on

According to a staunch liberal, President Joe Biden must jettison Vice President Kamala Harris in order to survive, just as drowning ships cast objects overboard.

Calling Harris “the most unpopular vice president in 30 years,” liberal Newsweek editor at large Tom Rogers called for her to be taken off the 2024 ticket in a recent Op-Ed for Newsweek.

Instead, he suggested that former California attorney general Kamala Harris should replace current attorney general Merrick Garland, who, according to Rogers, has a “cautious approach to the job.”

Rogers did not suggest a replacement for Harris and observed that it may be too late for his writings to have an impact given that Biden has already announced she will be his campaign mate in 2024.

Rogers noted that “disastrous” polls show Biden is in trouble.

“Biden’s underwater polling reflects the perception among many that Biden is simply too old, even for hard core Biden supporters. The President will be in his mid-80s throughout his second term. The perception that he will not be mentally fit enough to carry out the demands of the job may be unfair, but that perception is clearly held by a majority of voters, including Democrats and Independents,” Rogers wrote.

“The Democrats shouldn’t replace President Biden; they should replace Vice President Kamala Harris, who is even more unpopular, and who would replace President Biden in the event of an unfortunate circumstance related to his age and capabilities,” he wrote.

Consequently, he stated that pragmatism must prevail. Rogers argued that two to three percent of crossover voters in crucial swing states could decide the 2024 election.

“The most important question — perhaps the only question — of this election is whether swing voters in purple states who are highly resistant to Trump or DeSantis would feel forced to vote for them if Kamala Harris was the Vice President on the Biden ticket,” he wrote.

“If you think the answer to that question is that they might, or that enough of them might, that means that Vice President Harris could render Joe Biden unelectable. Which is why it is Harris who should be replaced,” he wrote.

Thomas Gift, associate professor of political science at University College London, opined that Harris’s threat to Biden depends on his opponent.

“There’s no doubt Harris is a drag on the ticket, but the extent to which she’ll pull down Biden will largely depend on who the Republican nominee is,” he said, according to Newsweek.

“If it’s Trump, then her impact will be near zero because the difference in the presidential choices will be so stark,” he said. “If it’s another GOP nominee, then the prospect of Harris in the White House may be enough to swing a few voters over to the opposing side.”

However, he stated that throwing Harris overboard would destroy the Biden campaign.

“Biden can’t afford to dispense with Harris for all the obvious reasons — identity politics, and the prospect of alienating a small fraction of the progressive base being chief among them,” Gift said

“But anyone in the White House who’s being intellectually honest would tell you that Biden knows Harris offers very little by way of help in his re-election bid,” he said.

Rogers cited an NBC poll that revealed 49 percent of respondents have a negative opinion of Harris, with 39 percent harboring a “very negative” opinion, while 32 percent have a positive opinion. The survey of 1,000 registered electors has a margin of error of 3.1%.

Harris, whose negatives outweigh her positives by 17 percentage points, has set a new low for vice presidential candidates in the NBC poll, according to NBC.
