Democrat voters as a whole may be on board with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) as Joe Biden’s prospective running mate, but one key demographic isn’t so excited about her.
A recent Rasmussen survey revealed that just 18 percent of Democrat voters have an unfavorable view of the former prosecutor, One-third of Black voters surveyed in the poll said less likely to vote for the Democrat ticket because of Harris.
The mainstream media furiously condemns anyone that questions Harris’s claim to represent African-American voters as racist. However, according to The National Pulse’s Editor-in-Chief Raheem Kassam, Harris’s background does not give her carte blanche to speak for all Black voters:
While the media will continue to portray Harris as African-American, it’s important to note her mother was from India, and her father from Jamaica.
That’s not typically what people think of when they say “African-American”. I’m Indian, for example, and I don’t go around pretending to be black.
The survey also found that another third of Black voters said that Biden’s choice of Harris will make them “more likely” to vote for the Biden/Harris ticket, and the final third said the choice either will not impact their vote or they are not sure if it will impact their vote.
Another striking finding of this most recent survey is that Harris’s approval rating among Black voters is only one point higher than their approval of President Trump — a fact the mainstream media is doing everything in its power to supress.
37 percent of Black voters said they have a “very favorable” opinion of Harris, but for the month of July, Rasmussen said that Black approval of Trump was 36 percent due to a series of definitive actions boosting employment in the Black community and tackling long-sought-after criminal justice reform.
Joe Biden chose Kamala Harris to cover up a recent string of shockingly offensive gaffes towards Black voters — but it appears his strategy may not have the effect he was looking for.
