Harris Confident of Victory: VP Addresses 2024 Election Speculations Amidst Declining Popularity
In a recent interview, Vice President Kamala Harris expressed unwavering confidence that she and President Joe Biden will secure another term in the White House, despite mounting speculations and criticisms.
During a preview of her forthcoming interview with CBS' Margaret Brennan, Harris addressed the looming 2024 elections. Brennan highlighted the increasing likelihood of former President Donald Trump emerging as the Republican nominee, given the current political climate. Harris, however, remained undeterred, stating, "We will win the election… we will win re-election. There’s too much at stake, and the American people know it."
The Vice President's remarks come at a time when her popularity has seen a noticeable decline. Yet, she remains steadfast in her belief that the Biden-Harris administration will prevail in the upcoming elections. The full interview is set to air on CBS on Sunday, September 10.
While in Jakarta, Harris has been actively participating in numerous interviews. A recurring theme in these discussions has been President Biden's age. If re-elected, Biden would be 82 at the time of his swearing-in. Addressing concerns about Biden's health and her potential to assume the presidency if required, Harris asserted, "Joe Biden is going to be fine, so that is not going to come to fruition." She further emphasized the inherent responsibility every vice president bears, acknowledging her readiness to step into the role of president if the situation demands.
Harris also took the opportunity to vouch for Biden's capabilities and well-being. She recounted the significant time they spend together in the Oval Office, witnessing firsthand his adeptness at navigating complex issues and making informed decisions for the nation. "I think the American people ultimately want to know that their president delivers. And Joe Biden delivers," Harris affirmed.
Meanwhile, President Biden himself doesn't view his age as a hindrance. In a recent address in Philadelphia, he argued that age has endowed him with wisdom and unparalleled experience. He confidently declared, "I’ve been doing this longer than anybody, and guess what? I’m going to continue to do it, with your help."
This interview snippet, obtained by Mediaite, offers a glimpse into the Biden-Harris administration's stance as they gear up for the 2024 elections. With the political landscape in a state of flux and the stakes higher than ever, the coming months promise to be eventful.
