Ex-Clinton Strategists Hold 'Crisis' Meeting’ on Kamala Harris' Failing Press Image
Negative perceptions of Harris is a cause for concern
Democrat political strategists held a "crisis" meeting in July in Washington, DC, to discuss the failing press image of Vice President Kamala Harris.
Former Bill and Hillary Clinton adviser, Kiki McLean, hosted the dinner with former DNC officials Leah Daughtry and Donna Brazile, former Hillary Clinton spokeswomen and Democratic strategists Adrienne Elrod, Karen Finney former Barack Obama spokesperson, Joe Biden adviser Stephanie Cutter, and former Obama communications director Jennifer Palmieri, another Democrat who worked on Hillary's failed presidential campaign.
At the meeting, no official from Harris’ office was in attendance, but “Harris confidant Minyon Moore” attended, reports say.
The main topic of discussion was the increasingly negative perceptions of Harris; in other words, how do they make the most unlikable Vice President in history "likable."
The group complained that media coverage of Harris echoed that of Hillary Clinton, which they perceived as sexist.
Neon Nettle reported earlier this week that Harris had been ranked as the least popular vice president since the 1970s.
Harris has plummeted in popularity with voters in her six months in office.
Polling compiled by the Telegraph revealed 46 percent of Americans approved of Harris, with 47 percent and 48 percent disapproving.”
Reports about Harris mistreating employees have not helped either.
The Atlantic reported Harris was frustrated with how the corporate media has treated her.
“Part of my frustration is the way that this system rewards sound bites” as opposed to “depth and thought,” Harris said in an interview with the Atlantic reporter Peter Nicholas.
According to Gallup, the Telegraph noted, 42.1 percent approved of former Vice President Mike Pence’s performance at the same point in his term while 41.9 percent disapproved.
"The previous vice president — Biden — had an approval rating above 50 percent after six months,” the report states.
Though Harris tried to connect with the 'woke' youngsters, she still struggles to capture America’s youth.
A recent Economist/YouGov poll the Telegraph also highlighted found 41 percent of voters ages 18-29 had an “unfavorable” view of Harris.
Just 36 percent of the same group viewed her “favorably.”
Harris failing to visit the border amid the spiraling crisis also made her popularity take a nosedive.
