New Poll Shows Who Dems Want Playing Puppet Master For Biden
Let's face it Biden is practically a Dem figurehead at this point, whenever he goes off script he's practically incoherent and brings up questions about his cognitive ability. So whoever Biden picks as a running mate will likely be running the show behind the scenes if they won. So surprisingly Dems are most excited about Kamala Harris. Harris ran against Biden and could not muster a real standing in the polls. She fell behind both Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren. But Dems it seems have had a change of heart and are now feeling it is far more important to have a female woman of color as vice president.
While 38 percent of Democrats overall found Warren an “acceptable” choice and 27 percent were "excited" about the idea, 19 percent found her to be a “not acceptable” choice, the highest negative rating of any of the 11 candidates listed.
The negative views rose among white voters. The USA Today/Suffolk University poll showed 23 percent of white voters found Warren to be a “not acceptable” choice, while that number was 19 percent among Hispanic voters and 13 percent among black voters.
Warren was an “exciting” choice to 33 percent of white Democrats and 15 percent of black voters.
The poll found that seven in 10 Democrats think it’s “important” for Biden to pick a black woman as his VP, as 35 percent said it was “very important” and 37 percent said it was “somewhat important.” Twenty-six percent thought it was “not very” or “not at all” important.
Harris, the daughter of Jamaican and Indian immigrants, generated the most excitement among Democrats across racial lines: 41 percent of white voters and 32 percent of African-Americans said they would be “excited” by the choice. Overall, 33 percent called her choice “acceptable” and 12 percent called her “not acceptable.”
So it looks like the Dems are trying to pander to black folks during this tumultuous time in our country. It's interesting how that works before Harris was practically ignored and now Dems want her to help run this country. But regardless of who Biden chooses they will still end up disappointed when Trump wins again this fall.
