A piece on conservative pundit Wayne Dupree’s site theorized that Vice President Kamala Harris may use the 25th Amendment to try to force President Joe Biden out of office before the 2024 election so that she can run for president instead.
She would need to get the majority of the president’s Cabinet to agree with her that Biden could not discharge his duties any longer, but if she could do that, her candidacy in 2024 would be a slam dunk, Dupree said.
His piece reportedly alleges that Harris and other officials want Biden to take all the criticism for poor decisions on immigration, Afghanistan, and the economy, but that once that happens, Harris wants to position herself to be the next Democrat president.
While it makes sense that Harris would have those kinds of ambitions, she is a deeply unpopular public figure who may not be able to win an election against any Republican, let alone the one expected to run for a second term in 2024.
It would be interesting to see a Trump–Harris matchup, but I think Trump would win in a landslide.
