Even though he faces many criminal accusations, Republican frontrunner Trump nevertheless managed to beat out incumbent Democrat Biden in polls in Arizona, Georgia, Michigan, Nevada, and Pennsylvania. Political analyst David Axelrod, who helped Barack Obama in both of his election campaigns and served as a top adviser in his administration, replied to the polls by saying it would cause "legitimate concern." He tweeted recently, "It's very late to change horses; a lot will happen in the next year that no one can predict & Biden's team says his resolve to run is firm. He's defied CW before but this will send tremors of doubt thru the party--not "bed-wetting," but legitimate concern."
When it comes to Harris, she has been the subject of a media blitz and has assumed a leading role in a number of policy initiatives all while attempting to reverse the downward trend in her poll ratings, bad press coverage, and high turnover rate among her staff. As reported by Fox News, Harris has lately given interviews to CBS's "60 Minutes" and "Face the Nation," as well as to The New York Times and The Atlantic. She has become the go-to person in the White House on a wide range of policy topics, from gun control and abortion rights to artificial intelligence. Even President Joe Biden's staff has been tweeting about her achievements. The White House chief of staff Jeff Zients recently tweeted, "President Biden on @VP's invaluable advice and counsel: "Kamala is my partner in all of it." However, the Republican presidential hopefuls have taken advantage of Harris's poor ranking to criticize her, while simultaneously appealing to voters' worries about Biden's age. They've expressed concern that Harris might become president if anything were to happen to 80-year-old Joe Biden and that she might not fit the role.
