After getting off to a promising start with her “that girl was me” moment, Kamala Harris’ campaign has no doubt fallen sharply.
In a recent interview, Harris implies the issue may be Americans “lack of ability” to imagine a black female as President.
Harris is currently in 5th place in the RCP national polling averages, behind Biden, Warren, Sanders and Buttigieg.
Harris, who briefly topped the PredictIt prediction markets as the most likely to win the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination is now in a dismal 7th, behind Andrew Yang and Hillary Clinton, who is not even running.
DailyCaller reports Democratic California Sen. Kamala Harris appeared to suggest that racism and sexism have hurt her chances to win the Democratic presidential nomination.
Harris told Axios on HBO that Americans have “a lack of ability” to imagine a black, female president in a video posted Sunday.
“I have also started to perhaps be more candid talking about what I described and what I believe to be the elephant in the room about my campaign,” Harris said. “Electability. You know, essentially, is America ready for a woman and a woman of color to be president of the United States?”
When the reporter mentioned that America elected President Barack Obama twice, she compared her struggling campaign to the former president’s.
“And this conversation happened for him. There is a lack of ability or a difficulty in imagining that someone who we have never seen can do a job that has been done, you know, 45 times by someone who is not that person,” Harris said.
