Poll: Kamala would beat DeSantis in 2024

 

If you believe that, I’ve got a bridge….

Before we look at this “scientific” poll, reported by Newsweek.com, consider this impersonation of this moron who presently serves, due to the wisdom of the 81 Million voters —time for another bridge?- who put the Drooler-in-Chief in office, as Vice-President of the United States. It is a truly uncanny mirror image of this pathetic excuse for a public servant now residing in Number One Observatory Circle in Washington, requiring just a little imagination due to the slightly different hair color and complexion. Here it is:

As a preliminary and precautionary statement, I should note that findings like the one reported in the referenced article should be taken with a large grain-boulder?- of salt due to many factors not the least of which is the old saying that a week is a very long time in politics and the very volatile state of American society under the “leadership” of “President” Potemkin and the train wreck which is his administration. One would be a fool to discount even the wildest possibilities these days, characterized as they are by huge sales of American oil to China while prices are in the $7.00 per gallon range in some parts of the country, to mention only one inanity tearing the country apart. So it behooves us to take a close look at this poll, although my personal view of it is succinctly expressed in the sub-title above.

    The only way Harris could beat DeSantis is if he was tied up, blindfolded, and handcuffed to a chair.  Even then, she’d ask whoever handed her a baseball bat, “How does this thing work?”

    Yeah, this is about as believable as the other one mentioned today that says Biden would beat Trump in a rematch.

    Doc Robert posted on BDB’s earlier post that with Biden beats Trump head to head in 2024.  So there’s that piece of highly acclaimed and obviously accurate portending too.  Hah! 

    I guess with enough fraud, chicanery and 3:00 AM ballot casting, they could claim Bootyjudge would win against G-d.

    It has a large number of undecideds, most of whom would probably flee the room screaming once they heard Harris.

    I also never understand what these “percentage of voters” polls are supposed to prove since there is no such thing as the “popular vote.”  We have 50 smaller races for President.

    It is literally impossible to poll the electorate accurately about how they would vote two years from now. Harvard knows this, by the way, but conducted and released the poll anyway because they are petrified of DeSantis, they know that Harris will not get any better between now and then, and they are counting on news outlets to promote it.

    Jim, thanks for the post and the link.

    I think that the explanation for the slight Harris lead over DeSantis is explained on p. 14 of the poll.  This page reports the favorable/unfavorable rating of 18 politicians — 17 Americans plus Putin.  The Americans include Trump, Pence, Sanders, Hillary Clinton, AOC, and others, as well as DeSantis.

    DeSantis is the one with the most favorable rating, +6%, 35% favorable to 29% unfavorable.  The only other person with a net favorable rating is Tim Scott (at +3%).

    Harris is -13%, 38% favorable to 51% unfavorable.  It appears that only 3% don’t know who she is, and 8% have no opinion.

    The precise number for those who “never heard of” DeSantis is not given, but it appears to be 12% (deducting the other figures from 100%).  Another 24% have no opinion of DeSantis.

    The poll result for the DeSantis/Harris head-to-head matchup is 38% DeSantis, 41% Harris, 20% “don’t know/unsure.”

    This leads me to believe that the bulk of the “undecideds” in the Harris-DeSantis poll matchup are likely to break for DeSantis.

    My Labrador Retriever could best Kamala Harris any day of the week. I really hope Dems believe that poll. It would be great if she were the candidate in 2024.

    Agreed.  My only problem is that I wanted to begin self-harm about 15 seconds into the video.

    Amazing as it might seem to those of us here at Ricochet, a lot of people in the United States are completely unfamiliar with Ron DeSantis, and there are probably more people who have never heard of him than have never heard of Kamala Harris. Any head-to-head comparison between Harris and DeSantis has a built in advantage for Harris because of her higher name recognition.

    Not to be confused with a “Harris pole” or a “Harris Pole”.  I’m not sure what either one is, but I suspect that the former involves a stage and the latter doesn’t exist.

    The one favorable thing Harris has that I’ve noticed is good cheek bones. But then I’m a cis male, so my opinion doesn’t count.

    Also, that may be the feature that led to her position in government.

    With the press on her side, with the “voting” process in many states on her side, I’m surprised so many think Kamala is bound to lose.

    The long knives of the Commie Des party are out for Traitor Joe. I think they are going to pull the 25th amendment on him.  Cackles Kamala would then be President, but I think they will push her aside for some reason as well. Hillary is still lurking in the wings, and just aching to get back in particularly now that Presidential elections can be fixed so easily. 

    The real question  is would the Deep State allow Kamala to be beaten by De Santis?

    What if the dem party organization that is behind-the-scenes and actually running the country is completely happy with the current arrangement?

    My fear , they take Kamala out first via scandal or ill  health or whatever, then the string pullers appoint either Michele, who never left Washington or the Evil One on the grounds of experience and that she should have won in 16 . Then they give old Joe the old 25th heave ho. It depends on who the Praetorian Guard in the alphabet agencies fear more,  Obama or Hillary. Both are known to be vindictive and petty so either way vengeance shall be wrought upon us deplorables.

    I don’t care who the Democrat candidate is, what is important is to get rid of Biden as soon as possible.  The Chinese control him and he won’t be removed unless the democrats see him as destroying their chances in 2022 and 2023.  They’re going to cheat and don’t have to cheat that much as, like last time, they just pile up votes from dysfunctional voters  while tossing away Republican votes in the same legal fraud.  We haven’t changed the system. Moreover, they’ll have to more openly fight for and for longer the next nomination if we replace Biden sooner.  The Chinese, in the mean time, with Biden there, are charging ahead and Democrat controlled media is not paying attention lest we insult Biden.

    A true nightmare scenario if ever there was one! Two of the scariest Frankenstein monsters of American politics and I’m sure that statement qualifies me as both a racist and a sexist–but, then, doesn’t every statement lately?

    Many possibilities.

    on the grounds of experience and that she should have won in 16.

    Oh. I get it.

    My reading of the 25th, when the Dims were excited about using it to remove Trump, is that it isn’t a permanent solution. The Vice becomes Acting President (it’s capitalized in the amendment) and the President can continue to appeal his removal from the duties of the President. That’s my interpretation of the amendment. I could be wrong.
