Black people haven’t warmed to Kamala Harris or Cory Booker in 2020. Barack Obama was a first term senator, but he was likable and charismatic and could appeal to black voters and White moderates. Neither Harris or Booker have either of these qualities.
“Kamala Harris says running for president as a woman of color in the 2020 election is different than running as a black man or as a white woman and that the question of electability has emerged as “the elephant in the room about my campaign.”
Why it matters: In an interview with “Axios on HBO,” the California senator, stuck around 5th place in Democratic presidential primary polls, says there’s still time to regain momentum to crack the top three in the Iowa caucuses on Feb. 3. She was mostly guarded in her remarks, but spoke more spontaneously on questions about race and her law-and-order background. …”
The elephant in the room is that Kamala Harris isn’t likable.
She never recovered after being labeled a cop by Mommy Tulsi. It was the coup de grace.
