Despite polling slightly better than Joe Biden, the Veep remains incredibly unpopular with the American people. According to the Daily Wire, “the most recent YouGov tracking poll shows that Harris’ unfavorability rating has hit 49%, while her favorability rating sits at just 45%.”
A strong rebuke. But how would you feel about a new and improved VP? Harris has hired two advisers to help rebrand her image: “Lorraine Voles, a crisis communications expert, and Adam Frankel, a former Obama speechwriter, worked for Harris during the presidential transition and have extensive experience crafting messages from the White House and the corporate world,” The Washington Examiner reports.
Voles’ website says she offers, “crisis management” and “marketing and rebranding.”
“The hires come amid a sense of anxiety among some Democrats about Harris’s first year as vice president. Many in the party view Harris, who ran an unsuccessful campaign for president, as a leading candidate to take the mantle from the 78-year-old President Biden either in 2024, should he choose not to run for reelection, or in 2028,” The Washington Post reported.
Harris has had a rough start as Vice President – especially her mishandling of the border crisis.
Fox News’ Kayleigh McEnany thinks Harris cares less about doing a good job now and more about her prospects for 2024 and beyond.
“All she cares about is the communications of it and her future presidential run. She doesn’t care about the actual problem. Do you think she cares about the little kids on the border in horrific detention facilities – ones she used to call human rights violations? Of course she doesn’t care about that. She just cares about how she’s perceived. It’s why she didn’t go to the border until she was pressured,” McEnany says.
