A new CNN poll shows that Kamala Harris, who seemed to be rising after the first debate where she blindsided Joe Biden as a busing-opposing racist, is now sinking fast after opponents publicized her record of keeping people in prison regardless of pesky details such as their innocence when she was California Attorney General.
This latest poll shows Harris has sunk to just 5% while Biden has regained a double-digit lead. He’s still 10 points lower than he was a couple of months ago, but he has 29% support, well ahead of Bernie Sanders (15%) and Elizabeth Warren (14%.)
At the link, Paul Mirengoff of the Powerline blog points out that all the Democratic poll frontrunners are legislators instead of anyone with executive experience at actually running anything (Biden doesn’t count as someone who’s actually run something, having been a Vice President.) Mirengoff surmises that this is because the Party has turned so far to the left that anyone who performed the necessary duties of an actual executive, such as enforcing laws or prosecuting criminals, would automatically be disqualified in the eyes of the leftist Utopians who now make up the primary base.
In other words, the Democrats have drifted so far away from reality, that to their base, having qualifications for the Presidency is now a disqualification.
A couple of other points to take from this poll are that Biden’s claim that Democrats should support him because he’s the most electable is built on a foundation of sand, and to quote Roger Miller, his poll numbers swing like a pendulum do. You should also heed my point, made before every election and always ignored by the media, that polls this far out from an election are about as trustworthy as an email promise of $10 million from a Nigerian prince.
