Thursday, during an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle editorial board, California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D) said that he is “hopeful” that Vice President Kamala Harris will succeed Joe Biden as the next U.S. President.
His comments came when the board asked Newsom, running for a second term this mid-term election cycle, “if he would promise to voters that he wouldn’t run for president before the end of that term” (expiring in 2027)? To which he replied-
-“Yeah, I mean, I have sub-zero interest. It’s not even on my radar,” and “I’m hopeful that she’s the next president of the United States”-California Gov. Gavin Newsom (D)
The governors support of Harris comes at a time when Harris’s approval rating has fallen well below that of Joe Biden’s, according to a recent Trafalgar poll which sampled 1,077 voters (April 18-20). The results are beyond poor.
The poll indicated just 28 percent of those who participated, approve of how “Harris is handling her job,” while 62 percent said they disapproved - versus - 39 percent approval of Biden with 55 percent disapproving. Neither one has the confidence of the American people. Even their own party is steering clear of them.
Harris’s terrible polling is the direct result of the poor job she has done securing the U.S. southern border and allowing the current invasion that is ongoing. With record number of illegal migrants coming into the U.S. at the U.S-Mexican border, her failure is evident.
According to the Republican National Committee’s research team, March of this year alone, with over 221,000 illegals accounted for, was the worst month since the Department of Homeland Security was founded in 2002. Again, Harris for President? Newsom is just dreaming or maybe not?
The two of them, cut their political teeth around the same time in California - with Harris and Newsom’s political careers following similar paths, dating back to their time working in leadership roles, as early as 2004 in San Francisco. Both have careers that have not been popular in California, are bad communicators and are excellent at spending the taxpayer’s funds. Further, they both appear to enjoy the benefits and prestige of power and privilege. Ask anyone who owns a business in California if Gavin Newsom’s policies have attracted them or sent them packing. The latter will be your answer.
So, when he is supporting her for the presidency, knowing how badly she is polling, don’t be surprised if he runs himself in spite of what he said in the interview. Gavin Newsom makes his own rules and is not inclined to pass up an opportunity to advance himself, no matter who he has to run over politically to do so. Time will tell.
America would be better of with them, both, nowhere near the White House.
