Kamala plummeting

Kamala plummeting

I was going to title this “Kamala’s going down.” But given how she made her way to the top, I thought that might be a tad icky, so I decided to go with “Kamala plummeting” instead.

Any old how.

It looks as those the post-debate boomlet that vaulted Kamala’s polling has imploded.  And now Kamala Harris is plummeting in the polls.

According to the latest CNN poll, Kamala sank by 12 points. That’s not a minor thing.  That is a free-fall.

Kamala’s plummeting numbers are hardly a shock.

Her biggest problem is her inability to hold on to a position for more than a day or so before she backtracks furiously to the opposite position.  Then a week goes by and she slowly inches back toward her original position. Until she gets push back that is (or the poll-testing info isn’t favorable).  Then, she backtracks again.

People still wonder where Kamala Harris wants to take the country?

Oh, honey. That’s because Kamala Harris has no earthly idea where she wants to take the country.  And I’m guessing she’s not the type to pull over and ask for directions.

Kamala doesn’t have a “vision.”  And if she does, after twenty-four hours (and overnight poll-testing), she’ll disavow that vision faster than you can say “Flip-Flop.”

The fact is, Kamala Harris has never once in her life run in a competitive race.  She is so far over her head right now, it doesn’t surprise me that her polling numbers are plummeting.

Harris is far too rehearsed and relies way too much on soundbites and hot-button phrases. There is not one single thing that is genuine and authentic about this woman.  Even her “that little girl was me” was scripted for Pete’s sake.

Extemporaneous speaking is as difficult for her as speaking Tagalog.

I do take a certain amount of pleasure in Kamala’s poll numbers plummeting, I have to admit.

After Tulsi Gabbard tore her apart in the last debate, Kamala told CNN that Tulsi is only going after her because, in Kamala’s words, “This is going to sound immodest, but I’m obviously a top tier candidate.”  And, lover of Karma that I am, her poll numbers plummeting to where she’s 24 points behind the frontrunner gives me a happy.

I guess it isn’t so obvious that you’re a top tier candidate, Kamala. At least not anymore.

One of the things that made President Trump skyrocket in the polls and hold that position all the way through the primaries was A) his ability to speak off the cuff without pre-written bromides and canned talking points and B) his willingness to say exactly what he means.

Voters responded favorably to Trump’s candor and his willingness to say all the things we were thinking — without first filtering it through an army of consultants and polling people.

In other words, he didn’t sound like the stereotypical sleazy politician who bases his every word off of poll-testing.

Kamala is the polar opposite.  Like Hillary Clinton, Kamala Harris relies on an army of advisors and consultants who try to mold and shape the candidate to fit every poll-tested position under the sun.

And because she is so far over her head, when Kamala is left to her own devices (like when she was confronted by Tulsi — or in any interview the dummy does), she inevitably wanders away from the talking points – which is why she constantly has to backtrack or “clarify” her positions.

If her polling continues to drop or remain flat, expect Kamala to use the next debate to deliver another staged and carefully rehearsed attack on Biden – or even Warren or Sanders.

After all, those guys are top tier candidates. So it wouldn’t be surprising for someone polling as low as Kamala to go after them.

    You have to wonder if Willie Brown needed her to clarify her positions

    She clearly was the 1 that told Jill Biden “to swallow”; among other things.

    The taxpayers paid for her pills; so she had no cares. Willy also not.

    “I was going to title this “Kamala’s going down.” But given how she made her way to the top, I thought that might be a tad icky,” Why? That is one “job” she is clearly qualified for.

    It is refreshing to see the ‘poll driven’ politics get set on its head with Harris. Up until 2016 we have had a succession of sound bite elections since as long as I can remember. Probably Reagan got the closest to speaking his mind but I know he relied on a teleprompter like every other politician since it was invented, except Trump. There is an obvious difference to anyone who listens and watches a candidate critically when they are not leaning on a teleprompter.

    The democrat pack are so desperate to gin up a quotable sound bite they keep throwing things out there to see what sticks. Their debates are more like memory tests than they are an exchange of ideas. Each candidate armed to the teeth with pithy quotes and rejoinders marches onto the stage waiting for their turn in the democratic president Sound Bite BEE. Which ever one can remember the best lines and not get flustered and screw up wins the prize from the DNC and gets to run against Trump. God help which ever democrat gets the nod. The lack of talent is obvious.
