Vice President Kamala Harris has apparently finally realized just how unpopular she is with the American public and according to a new report – she is desperately trying to change that.
The report indicates she has hired two veteran advisers who help craft politicians’ images in order to shore up her image with the American public.
“Lorraine Voles and Adam Frankel, who worked with Harris during the transition, have joined the team and will focus on strategic communications, long-term planning and organizational development, a White House official with knowledge of the matter said,” Reuters reports.
The official added, “Their experience has been and will continue to be a valuable resource for our whole team, as we map out long-term planning and fulfill the administration’s ambitious policy agenda.”
“Lorraine Voles, a crisis communications expert, and Adam Frankel, a former Obama speechwriter, worked for Harris during the presidential transition and have extensive experience crafting messages from the White House and the corporate world,” The Washington Examiner also reported, adding, “Among the services Voles advertises on her website, ‘crisis management’ and ‘marketing and rebranding’ earn top billing.”
“The hires come amid a sense of anxiety among some Democrats about Harris’s first year as vice president. Many in the party view Harris, who ran an unsuccessful campaign for president, as a leading candidate to take the mantle from the 78-year-old President Biden either in 2024, should he choose not to run for reelection, or in 2028,” The Washington Post reported.
Harris has been hammered by things such as her massive failure at the border – where President Biden designated her to lead the administration’s efforts to deal with the illegal immigrant crisis – but Harris went months without even visiting the southern border.
The BBC reported, “Critics said Ms. Harris should have visited a tent complex at nearby Fort Bliss, where migrant children are being held. A BBC investigation of the Fort Bliss detention centre found reports of sexual abuse, Covid and lice outbreaks, hungry children being served undercooked meat and sandstorms engulfing the desert tent camps where the young people are being held.”
In mid-August, a survey conducted by Rasmussen Reports found that a whopping 55% of respondents felt Harris was not qualified to be president. The national telephone and online survey asked, “How qualified is Kamala Harris to assume the responsibilities of the presidency?”
“Only 43% of Likely U.S. Voters think Harris is qualified to assume the duties of the presidency, including 29% who think she is Very Qualified. That’s down from April when 49% said Harris was qualified to become president. Now, 55% say Harris is not qualified to assume the duties of the presidency, including 47% who say she is Not At All Qualified,” Rasmussen wrote.
Other polls reveal that Harris is the most unpopular vice president since at least the 1970s, and as the border crisis continues to worsen Harris likely will not gain any points for her accomplishments on that front any time soon.
