There was a time when it looked as if Sen. Kamala Harris was ready to join the ranks of Joe Biden and Elizabeth Warren to become a serious contender for the Democratic nomination. Following a strong performance in the first Democratic debate, Harris’s poll numbers surged. Now that the second Democratic debate is complete, though, Harris’s poll numbers are surging once again – except this time they are surging down.
Ultimately, Sen. Harris has Tulsi Gabbard to thank for her drop in support. In one short dialogue, Gabbard completely destroyed Harris, brutally attacking her record as a California’s attorney general and leaving Harris fumbling for a response.
It’s not an exaggeration to say that Harris was exposed in the last debate. While she is great on the attack, her policies and plans are far to threadbare for Harris to defend against attacks from her opponents. Likewise, her record as a prosecutor for the state gives plenty of ammunition to opponents who see being tough on crime as a very negative thing.
While the election is far from over, it seems that Harris’s campaign is now struggling to stay above water. To see for yourself the brutal moment that is leading to the demise of Harris’s campaign, be sure to check out the video below.
