If you’re a polling skeptic, here’s fuel for your fire: A recent poll from Harvard University Center for American Political Studies (CAPS) shows that Vice President Kamala Harris would beat Florida Governor Ron DeSantis 39 percent to 37 percent in a hypothetical 2024 presidential contest.
Let me take a second to stop laughing.
It is worth noting that 52 percent (a staggering 56%) of registered voters said Kamala was unfavorable as of the June 21st poll. Kamala has often face-planted during interviews and public appearances. Biden assigned two main issues to her, border control and voter rights. She failed spectacularly. Border crossings are at an all-time high and she still hasn’t found time to visit there, while voting rights have all but disappeared from the national conversation.
With her witty, sarcastic laugh and fragmented sentences that say nothing, her interviews have been legendary. I and others at RedState have chronicled her “work” extensively.
Watch her say “work together” five times in thirty seconds:
It isn’t presidential material. This is in contrast to Ron DeSantis whose April approval rating was a solid 59 per cent according to a survey and it’s likely to be even higher. He is a powerful public speaker, and he swats his opponents away with strong arguments.
He has a strong ally in spokesperson Christina Pushaw who can be counted on virtually every day to come out in defense of DeSantis against the media’s mischaracterizations of the Governor and his policies. Her latest:

A Trump-DeSantis battle for the presidency is now a trending news topic—and DeSantis is often favored in recent polls.
A poll that claimed Kamala would defeat DeSantis took place between June 28 and 29, among 1,308 registered voter. Notably, 23 percent of respondents were “undecided.” I’m a betting man, and my bet is that most of them will not wake up one day soon and decide, “Hey, I think Harris is the right choice.”
One can only wonder, though, who were the 39 percent who claimed they’d vote for Harris? Kamala, who is currently so inept that it would be difficult for her to win an election as dogcatcher, seems very unpopular.
Newsweek attempts to explain the poll, making it even more absurd.
The poll found that 71 percent of respondents said Biden should not run again, with 45 percent of those saying he’s a “bad president,” 30 percent citing his age and 26 percent saying it was time for a change.
Harris received positive news in the survey regarding 2024 Democratic Primaries. She placed second behind Biden among Democratic voters, garnering 18 percent support to the president’s 30 percent.
Wait, you just said that 71 percent don’t want Biden to run again… but the “good news” for Harris is that she placed second behind him. Doesn’t that mean that Continue reading than 71 percent wouldn’t want her to run, or am I missing something?
A lot of Americans are now distrusting the polls because they’ve been wrong from Bush v. Gore through Trump v. Clinton. Literally, just three days prior to the 2016 election, a poll found that over 50% of Americans believed their polls were correct. Chance of success: 90%Hillary Clinton defeating Donald Trump easily. Oops.
Although it is funny to think Kamala could beat DeSantis, I don’t believe that this idea has any basis in reality.
