Breaking: Top Harris Aide Resigns, Scapegoat For Incompetent Boss

The bell is tolling.

Late Thursday afternoon the communications director for Kamala Harris, Ashley Etienne, resigned, a scalp to throw to the party and the press over the vast mayhem and incompetence in the veep office. As tensions grow and bonds sever between Biden and Harris, DC rumor says Biden is so displeased with her he has told confidantes he doesn’t want her on the 2024 ticket. Writer Tom Del Beccaro gives us reasons Harris will never get to sit behind the Resolute desk.

Del Beccaro: A staggering 61% of voters don’t want Joe Biden to run for president again. Given that Biden will more than likely not be the Democratic Party’s nominee in 2024, the question arises what will become of Harris. The answer is that she is most unlikely to ever be the Democrats’ nominee in 2024.

Here are five reasons why.

5.  America and Kamala Harris will continue to suffer from bad policy decisions in the next 3 years. President Biden’s approval ratings rank among the worst of any president after just ten months. They include a poll with 37.8% approve and a stunningly high 59% disapproval rating.

Are you embarrassed that Joe Biden is our "president"?

4.  Kamala Harris’ Rough Start. Harris’ current approval ratings are a dismal 28% – far lower than the prior vice president at this juncture in his term. According to the Los Angeles Times, when her ratings were already in the 40s, her ratings “were well under the ratings of three previous vice presidents.”

3. Don’t Expect Harris’ Fortunes to Change.  Recall that Harris didn’t enter the Iowa Caucus in 2020 because she was not popular among Democrats – most importantly not even among California Democrats.  Her polling showed her dropping to fourth and fifth in the California primary before she gave up her presidential hopes.

2. Kamala Harris’ Shrinking Base. Politicians come and go but those with those with a loyal following tend to have greater prospects. As of this writing, Harris’ base, what little of it existed a year ago, has actually diminished. Her national 28% approval rating, lower than that if you exclude California voters, is an indication that she has a shrinking base. That does not bode well for a presidential candidate especially when what little base a candidate has is a state that Democrats count as a given, i.e. California.

1. The Democrats’ Overriding Desire to Win. Democrats will want to hold the White House more than ever in 2024 – especially if they lose the House and Senate in 2022. A severely weakened Harris, even if she is president by then, won’t fill that bill for them. Some say that was why she was saddled with the border crisis and why her visibility is so low now. Rather than lose in 2024, Democrats will move on to a nominee to be named later instead of risking their fortunes with Kamala Harris.
