Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) emerged as former Vice President Joe Biden’s running mate on Tuesday. But her presidential campaign was a disaster: even in her home state, Harris struggled to build support, finishing at 7% in California last year.
By late November, a poll by the Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies for the Los Angeles Times “showed that by 61% to 24%, likely Democratic primary voters in California thought Harris should quit the race.” Harris was at 7%.
Her final finish in the RealClearPolitics primary poll average for California was 8.3% — down from a high of 23%.
JUST IN: President Trump responds to Joe Biden choosing Sen. Kamala Harris as his running mate: "She was my number one draft pick & we'll see how she works out. She did very, very poorly in the primaries as you know. She was expected to do well and she ended up right around 2%." pic.twitter.com/IbreDPzm0y— The Hill (@thehill) August 11, 2020
Kamala Harris isn't a "moderate," she's a phony politician who sold out to the radical left for power.— Donald Trump Jr. (@DonaldJTrumpJr) August 12, 2020
Her radical record:
-Banning private health insurance
-Amnesty & taxpayer funded healthcare for illegals
-No death penalty for cop killers
-Gun confiscation pic.twitter.com/2b0ybgYZfC
I suspect Biden naming Harris will result in 2 things:— Ari Fleischer (@AriFleischer) August 12, 2020
1) The race will tighten. Not because of Harris, but because it reminds voters that Biden exists. 2) She won’t increase black turnout. She didn’t do well in the primary and she’s not that exciting.

What does Kamala Harris add to the ticket? What votes does she bring?— Jeremy Boreing (@JeremyDBoreing) August 11, 2020
She was terrible in the primaries. Earned zero votes. Is unlikeable. Called Biden racist, and said she believed his accuser. And she put people in jail - a lefty heresy of the first order.
Kamala Harris will help the ticket - the Trump/Pence ticket. The mopie, depressing, nasty (remember her in the Kavanaugh hearings) will be more baggage for the very frail Biden to carry. Dem voters hated her and she was the first one to fizzle out in the primaries.— MARK SIMONE (@MarkSimoneNY) August 11, 2020
Kamala Harris got a whopping 3% support in the Democrat primary.— Catturd ™ (@catturd2) August 11, 2020
Catturd Conclusion ... Kamala Harris is about as likable as explosive diarrhea.
