"Roller Coaster Summer" for Kamala Harris

The highs and lows of Kamala Harris' roller coaster summer

"If Kamala were on the debate stage (with Donald Trump), I think she'd wax the floor with him. She would just dominate him," Mirocha said in an interview. "I watched the Barr confirmation, the (Brett) Kavanaugh confirmation. You can tell she's a prosecutor. She's methodical. If you sit back and just kind of listen, really listen, you can tell she's two steps ahead of them in her questioning."

If political polls can be taken, at face value, Senator Harris, who is less known - on a national basis - than other contenders for the Democratic nomination, will not win.

As a consolation prize, who would like to see Trump face Kamala Harris as Attorney General of the USA?

1. that's patently untrue (your contention Harris won't win because of Aug. polls showing her behind)


____The Washington Post reported on this day in July of 2007, Hillary Clinton had a “double-digit lead over” Obama and “Clinton enjoys a substantial edge over Obama among the 4 in 10 Democrats who said that in assessing presidential candidates, strength and experience are more important than new ideas or a new direction. Even among the 51 percent who prefer a change-oriented candidate, the core message of Obama’s campaign, Clinton runs even with him.”

The Post also started, “It may be equally important that Clinton’s initial support for the Iraq war is not proving a significant impediment to her bid.” However, her voting for the war in Iraq was a huge blow to her campaign.

The Post said according to polls, “Asked which Democratic candidate has the best chance of winning the general election in November 2008, 54 percent said Clinton, more than twice the percentage saying Obama (22 percent).”
