President Joe “Empty Shelves” Biden’s equally blunder-prone veep, Kamala Harris, may actually be in a stronger position than thought to succeed him as the 2024 presidential nominee of the Democrat Party.
The Next Democratic Presidential Nominee?
The latest public opinion polls show Harris is actually the most preferred choice for a 2024 presidential nominee among Democrat voters, if Biden decides not to run again.
The Biden administration, or the “Biden-Harris administration,” as Sleepy Joe’s staffers have bizarrely insisted on calling it – has been pummeled in the polls by the wide gamut of crises it either created single-handedly or exacerbated beyond imagination.
Those range from stupefying inflation, the supply chain crisis, and communist-style shortages of goods as basic as baby formula.
It also expands to the bewildering loss of the war in Afghanistan, the deliberate effort to resettle third world illegals into the United States, and failure to stop vicious Russian tyrant Putin from waging war on Ukraine and, by implication, on the entire Free World.
Both Biden and his equally questionable veep have thus seen their ratings drop to the low 30s and even upper 20s.
To top it all off, while Sleepy Joe keeps insisting he will be running for re-election, he is so much in love with Harris that he would like to “keep” her.
Biden's only job is to read out what has been written for him by Obama on the teleprompter, but sometimes he gets the words mixed up and goes off at a tangent. That's why Kamala will take over as "acting president" from Biden in 2024, if the 2 million mules do their job properly. pic.twitter.com/MaJDpqqnxq

If President Joe Biden decides to not run for re-election in 2024, the obvious heir-apparent to the 79-year-old commander-in-chief seems like it would be Vice President Kamala Harris, the former junior senator from California. pic.twitter.com/ZSVWc6JDtp

Harris Only Polls Strongly Among Democrats
There have been worries from Democratic strategists that Harris is practically “unelectable” in a general election. She seems poised to perform particularly poorly not just among Republican voters, but also among Independents.
According to the Harvard CAPS-Harris poll, 19% of Democrat voters preferred Harris to be their party’s nominee for the White House in the 2024 presidential election
Both Bernie Sanders, the communist Democrat senator from Vermont, and former First Lady Hillary Clinton received 10% each.
Biden’s Transportation Secretary and pro-supply chain crisis protégé, Pete Buttigieg, is ranked fourth, with 7% of the Democrat voters favoring his candidacy.
Senator Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota comes after with 3% support among Democrat voters.

https://t.co/xQjVAAhsLv Extremely difficult to believe that Harris would beat out DeSantis by three points in a one-on-one contest. Have the people who voted for her in this poll never heard her talk?

Polls are Polls. In a hypothetical 2024 match up according to Harvard CAPs – Harris poll survey, if election held right now Trump gets 47 percent compared to 41 percent for Biden with 12 percent undecided.

Why do you think Kamala Harris talks to us like we're idiots?

Vast Majority of Americans ‘Dissatisfied’ With Sleepy Joe
Meanwhile, another public opinion poll by Gallup found a whopping 83% of American voters are “dissatisfied” with America’s “direction” under the leadership, or lack thereof, of Joe Biden.
Only 16% view the nation’s current course of development positively. The Gallup poll conducted between May 2 and May 22 still gave Sleepy Joe a “steady” public approval rating of 41%.
This is a figure social media commentators on the right or center have slammed as suspiciously high against the backdrop of the unfolding inflation and goods shortage crises.
At the same time, Biden’s ratings have declined by 6%, compared with the previous Gallup poll back in April.
The pollster points out the Democrat occupant of the White House is nowhere near the 60% of public support an incumbent president needs to stave off a major defeat for his party in the midterm elections.
GALLUP Poll: Just 16% of U.S. adults are satisfied with the way things are in the nation
Satisfied 16% (-6)
Dissatisfied 83% (+6)
Approve 18% (-2)
Disapprove 77% (+1)
+- changes from April poll

I'm concerned about the welfare of the other 17%. Shouldn't they be tracked down for mental health check ups? 🤔#Biden faces another dire poll. 83% of Americans are DISSATISFIED with direction America is going https://t.co/EtQZcff5IP @MailOnline

These days, I take good news when I can find it – 83% of Americans are DISSATISFIED with the direction America is going: Biden faces another dire poll as his approval rating slips to 36% with just six months until the midterms. pic.twitter.com/Sqjyzlv8FY
