Senator Kamala Harris (D-CA) announced her presidential campaign mere weeks ago, but she’s already stumbled right out of the gate. It’s over for this Trump critic.
A new scientific poll in Iowa of likely Democrat voters shows Harris at paltry 7-percent support, with fellow Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont and former Vice President Joe Biden — who isn’t even currently running — far in the lead.
Harris’s goal was to capture the support of the Democratic Party’s base by appealing to her youth and being a woman. Instead, she’s losing to an old, dyed-in-the-wool socialist and a fictitious candidate that played second fiddle to Obama.
The full results showed a virtual tie between at the top, with Biden at 27-percent and Sanders at 25-percent. From there, a huge drop occurs, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) at 9-percent, Harris at 7-percent, and former Rep. Beto O’Rourke at 5-percent.
Should Biden choose to jump into the race, political observers wonder if that will clear the field even further. Biden will likely lock in the establishment’s support, and Sanders will continue to draw upon the energy of his far-left base.
It is difficult to believe, but Iowa’s primary, which functions as a caucus system, is only 11 months away and will be held on Feb. 3, 2019. President Trump will be ready for any candidate that emerges as the Democratic nominee.
