There is a lot of talk swirling in the Beltway concerning Joe Biden and Kamala Harris. The incredibly unpopular duo are both rapidly sinking in approval rating and they have both have been in office for less than a year. It seems a tad shocking that they would be so low in the polls considering that the mainstream media has touted that Biden is the most popular president EVER to be elected, but I digress.
Over the last few weeks, there have been increasing talks concerning the sinking approval rating of Kamala Harris and now it seems that Team Biden is looking for ways to unload her.
Kamala’s approval ratings are 10-points lower than “Sleepy” Joe which for the Biden administration spells disaster. The team propping up Joe is now wanting to sever ties with Harris who was once thought to be the “Heir” to Joe’s throne.
Harris has proven to be a complete and total dud, and Dems are reportedly panicking.
And now, the “nuclear option” is on the table…
Bizpacreview reports that a “highly improbable” scenario is floating around the Washington, D.C., rumor mill, The Telegraph is reporting that Democrats are “considering the nuclear option” to clear the way for a more viable 2024 presidential candidate, given Vice President Kamala Harris’s historically low approval rating numbers. The nuclear option here is to appoint “unelectable” Harris to the Supreme Court.
CNN has also thrown the scenario up against the wall in its report earlier this month on the “entrenched dysfunction and lack of focus” from Team Harris: “Defenders and people who care for Harris are getting frantic… When they’re depressed, they bat down the Aaron Sorkin-style rumor that Biden might try to replace her by nominating her to a Supreme Court vacancy. That chatter has already reached top levels of the Biden orbit, according to one person who’s heard it.”
The given here, of course, is that frail, 79-year-old President Joe Biden, whose cognitive decline is more and more obvious to many with every passing day, will not run for reelection — he’ll be 82-years-old in 2024.
“Democrats desperately scrambling to find a potential successor to Joe Biden in 2024 are whispering about a potential nuclear option that could see Kamala Harris, the current Vice President, nominated to the Supreme Court,” The Telegraph reported. “While the scenario is highly improbable, and perhaps a reflection of a Washington rumor mill in overdrive, the fact it has come up at all shows the depths of the predicament the Biden administration currently finds itself in, amid rising inflation, a stalled domestic agenda, and foreign policy disasters.”
On the other end of the spectrum, Dem operatives think they can get rid of Kamala with a crowded Dem primary.
That seems more realistic to me since she did so badly in the last one she took part in.
Besides, I don’t see Kamala ever getting approved as a SCOTUS nominee in this political atmosphere.
