Due to several mistakes and deficiencies, Biden’s poll numbers have fallen since his disastrous pullout from Afghanistan and have never recovered, in fact, even President Trump was more popular at this time in his presidency.

Now, prominent leftists are currently white-knuckling the possibility to lose significantly in both the House and the Senate in the upcoming midterm elections in November, as a result of the Biden-Harris Administration’s appalling performance.
Well, it’s hard to imagine Democrats being in a worse position for the next presidential election than they are now.
Harris is arguably one of the least popular vice presidents in American history.
Not only Harris has performed exceedingly poorly in the polls, with the majority of respondents in multiple polls having an unfavorable impression of her. Her own liberal party said they will not support her to take Joe Biden’s place at the head of the Democratic ticket and even Biden, her boss, has already started blaming her for his sinking approval ratings as the media reports say.
Democrats are concerned that if President Biden decides not to campaign in 2024 that his successor would be Harris who many believe is unelectable.
Here’s what University of Virginia politics professor Larry Sabato said:
“Her main problem is not being a woman or mixed race, her problem is she has low ratings just like President Biden. If Biden were riding sky high, she would be doing relatively well as well. She would be seen as a popular successor carrying on a popular president’s mandate.”
And on the condition of anonymity, some eminent political donors who talked to the Post are equally concerned about a prospective Harris White House run.
“She seems completely useless,” a Democratic benefactor said. “No one involved in this administration should be in the running.”
Some others think she’s so incompetent that she couldn’t even manage a kid-run sidewalk lemonade stand to serve thirsty summer customers simple refreshments.
Others believe she could regain support from the left if she would just stop talking so much.
According to the Newyork Post:
Democratic insiders have fretted about Harris’ own bungled 2020 presidential campaign, during which she dropped out in December 2019, with an operation widely derided at the time as disorganized and riven with infighting.
Since being elected, those issues have continued to simmer, with her vice presidential office frequently in the news for staff turnover, with at least a dozen leaving. In April alone she lost her Chief of Staff, Tina Flournoy, and Deputy Chief of Staff Michael Fuchs. Staffers have griped anonymously that the mood internally is “dour,” “chaotic,” and that they are “treated like s—t.”
“She doesn’t know how to build a staff that has a common purpose. You see a lot of her staffers are doing their own thing. There is little guidance from her and it just looks messy all the time and all she can do when asked about it publicly and privately is giggle,” lamented a top Democratic staffer on capitol hill.
“I just don’t think people are seeing her as a serous contender,” he added. “If she weren’t the vice president she wouldn’t even been ON the list.”
Well, it likely comes as no surprise.
