Vice President Kamala Harris recognized the significant challenge that she and President Joe Biden faced in their pursuit of re-election, but conveyed confidence regarding the forthcoming 2024 presidential election.
Harris issued her remarks in close proximity to the White House, following the Democratic candidates’ successful campaigns in several national electoral contests, which coincided with the president and vice president’s current unfavorable polling figures.
“It was a good night. And the president and I obviously have a lot of work to do to earn our re-election. But I am confident we’re going to win,” she asserted.
Harris expressed optimism regarding Biden’s re-election chances during a recent interview on the television program “60 Minutes,” wherein he was queried about the intense competition between the incumbent president and former President Donald Trump.
In an interview with CBS, Bill Whitaker inquired as to the factors influencing the comparative proximity of vice president Harris and president Biden in the polls with former president Trump, notwithstanding the latter’s ongoing legal disputes.
“The Biden-Harris ticket is running neck and neck with Donald Trump. Why are you not 30 points ahead?” Whitaker inquired.
Harris stated that she does not consider herself a political commentator; however, she emphasized that the outcome will be apparent on Election Day of the following year, when American citizens will cast their ballots.
“Bill, we’re going to win. Let me just tell you that. We’re going to win. I’m aware and I’m not saying it’s going to be easy. But we will win,” she answered, doing very well at attempting to believe what she was saying.
Whitaker, most likely sensing her BS, returned with a deserving shot, “You say that with such conviction,” in almost a sarcastic way. He couldn’t even look her in the eye, probably knowing she was just putting lipstick on a warthog.
Kamala continued the BS:
“I have no doubt, but I also have no doubt it’s going to be a lot of work. And everyone’s going to have to participate. This is a democracy. I look at it more as let’s keep getting out there. And, as with any election, we got to make our case to the American people. That’s part of our responsibility. And that’s this process. And that’s what it is. And that’s a fair process.”
Harris was questioned regarding a CBS survey that revealed a decrease in younger voters’ support for the president.
“If you poll how young people feel about the climate and the warming of our planet, it polls as one of their top concerns. When we talk about what we are doing with student loan debt, polls very high. The challenge that we have as an administration is we got to let people know who brung it to them. That’s our challenge. But it is not that the work we are doing is not very, very popular with a lot of people,” she remarked.
In the course of a subsequent interview, Harris attracted scrutiny due to her peculiar declaration that Biden is “very much alive” and has no intention of seeking re-election.
According to recent polling data, Biden is currently trailing Trump in five pivotal states where the result of the election remains uncertain. Democratic senators are alarmed and perplexed by this development, as it creates a political barrier for the party’s candidates for Senate positions in those regions.
The Democratic Party articulates concern regarding President Biden’s declining polling numbers and the possible ramifications that may affect his candidacy in the forthcoming 2024 election. However, they assert that Biden is well positioned to receive the party’s nomination, barring any substantial changes to the current state of affairs.
However, critics concede that a considerable proportion of voters harbor concerns regarding Biden’s advanced age of eighty years.
Senator Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) expressed a persistent apprehension with the concept of electability. “I hear immense praise for what he has done and how well he is doing on foreign policy and extremism at home. He’s doing everything right, is what I’m hearing. And yet there’s this lingering concern about electability,” Blumenthal said.
Blumenthal also emphasized that “The question about the polls concerns people.” He also acknowledged that Trump, aged 77, is not significantly younger than Biden.
Senate Democrats contend that for President Biden to effectively captivate and galvanize young voters, it is imperative that he augment and embrace a more comprehensive and progressive political platform. Within the voter demographic spanning from 18 to 29 years of age, the current level of support between him and Trump is nearly equivalent.
Based on a study conducted by The Hill, Joe Biden secured 60% of the vote from this specific demographic in 2020, whereas Donald Trump obtained 36%.
A considerable number of Democratic legislators maintained the viewpoint that the publication of state and federal indictments would substantially diminish the support for Trump among swing and independent voters.
Based on a survey conducted by Siena College and The New York Times, it has been noted that in five states that Biden secured during the 2020 presidential election, Donald Trump has amassed a greater degree of support than Biden. Arizona, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, and Nevada comprise these states.
The results of the poll have generated considerable apprehension within the Democratic Party, as they suggest that a substantial proportion of registered voters (62 percent) maintain the viewpoint that Biden lacks the cognitive capacities essential for assuming the presidency. Furthermore, an impressive 71 percent of the participants indicate that they believe Biden’s age disqualifies him from being considered for the position.
