The Democrat Party’s goals for the midterms are getting voters to turn out and expanding their House and Senate majorities. Therefore, leftists are banking on Harris to attract young voters, Independents, and women to the polls to vote for Democrats.
Thus far, the vice president is set to attend a fundraising event and engage in other causes to promote Democrat running for Congress.
The problem with the Harris strategy
It is very apparent that Democrat candidates aim to avoid Biden’s baggage and rising disapproval ratings. However, Harris is Biden’s vice president. Therefore, it’s odd the party believes the vice president of an unpopular administration can bring out voters.
Furthermore, Harris herself does not have the best poll numbers either. Many Americans are not pleased with the vice president’s failure to get the border under control, despite Biden tapping her as the point person for this.
The Democrat Party has a tough road ahead. Right now, Republicans remain highly projected to take back the House of Representatives. The Senate majority is not that far out of reach for Republicans, either.
