Senator Kamala Harris’ presidential campaign continued its struggle to connect with voters in New Hampshire in recent weeks; with new polls showing the California lawmaker gaining just 1% of support from residents of the Granite State.
The latest survey from Quinnipiac shows former Vice President Joe Biden in the lead with 20% of support; followed by Elizabeth Warren at 16%, Pete Buttigieg at 15%, and Bernie Sanders at 14%.
Harris finished at the bottom of the list with just 1%.
“As for the bottom-tier, Quinnipiac finds Kamala Harris posting her worst polling result of 2019 in New Hampshire a couple weeks after the California senator fired her campaign staff and closed campaign offices in the state in order to redirect her diminishing resources to Iowa,” reports the National Review.
The poor showing comes days after Harris slashed staff and closed campaign offices in New Hampshire; a sign the campaign acknowledges their uphill battle throughout the state.

Failing presidential candidate Kamala Harris plans to “restructure” her fading 2020 campaign in the days ahead; distributing an internal memo that warned of staff cuts as cash runs dry.
“Kamala Harris is dramatically restructuring her campaign by redeploying staffers to Iowa and laying off dozens of aides at her Baltimore headquarters, according to campaign sources and a memo obtained by POLITICO Wednesday, as she struggles to resuscitate her beleaguered presidential bid,” reports Politico.
“The moves come as Harris is hemorrhaging cash and in danger of lacking the resources to mount a competitive bid against better-funded rivals in Iowa. The overhaul will touch nearly every facet of Harris’ operation, with layoffs or re-deployments coming at headquarters, as well as in New Hampshire, Nevada and her home state of California, a Super Tuesday prize that her advisers once viewed as a big asset,” adds the website.
Harris’ campaign manager Juan Rodriguez will reportedly slash his own salary, which was reportedly more than $10,000 per month.
The latest polling from Real Clear Politics has Harris hovering at fifth-place among registered Democrats, tied with businessman Andrew Yang.
Both candidates trail Biden, Warren, Sanders, and Buttigieg.

BIDEN’S BEDTIME? ‘Sleepy Joe’ Stumbles Through Rambling Speech, Stops to Ask ‘What Am I Doing?’
Democratic Frontrunner Joe Biden surprised his supporters during an unusual speech this week; stumbling through his prepared remarks and ultimately asking “What am I doing?” before exiting the stage.
“I would uhhhh, remind the world that we are the United States of America… They’ll be no more Charlottesville, no more Helsinki,” said Biden. “Donald Trump and the democrogs— demagogues around the world are learn— leaning into these forces.”
“We believe in free speech, that’s why I’ll end the global gag rule… What am I doing?” he asked.
The former Vice President’s poll numbers have dropped in recent weeks after the first Democrat debates in Miami.
“The NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey found that 26 percent of likely primary voters support Biden, while 19 percent support Warren. Trailing those two are Sens. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) and Bernie Sanders(I-Vt.), who are each backed by 13 percent,” reports The Hill.
“The only other contenders who receive support from more than 1 percent of voters are South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg with 7 percent, former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke with 2 percent and former tech executive Andrew Yang with 2 percent,” adds the site.
Warren introduced a new plan this week that would essentially “decriminalize” those caught illegally entering the United States; raising serious new questions over the Democrat’s immigration policy heading into the 2020 election.
“Entering the country without authorization has always been a violation of civil immigration law, but thanks to a former segregationist Senator, it’s also a criminal violation. This additional criminal provision is totally unnecessary for border security, and for a century, it was rarely enforced. But since the early 2000s, it has been used to build and sustain a massive immigration detention complex,” writes Warren in an op-ed published by Medium.
“In 2016, over half of all federal criminal prosecutions were for immigration violations — more than prosecutions for terrorism, organized crime, hate crimes, or financial fraud. This obsessive focus ties up federal prosecutors and overwhelms federal courts. It’s costly and unnecessary. And under Trump, it has become increasingly abusive,” she adds.
DUE PROCESS? Kamala Harris Doubles-Down on Kavanaugh Impeachment, Calls Allegations ‘Credible’
2020 presidential hopeful Senator Kamala Harris doubled-down on her calls for the impeachment of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh Monday night; calling new allegations against the judge “credible.”
“Christine Blasey Ford, who literally had nothing to gain by coming forward… nothing to gain. She had a perfect life. And she looked at the fact that this guy was being nominated and said, ‘the American people had the right to know what I know,’ and she was treated like a criminal,” Harris told MSNBC.
“So yes, I call for impeachment,” Harris told MSNBC host Rachel Maddow. “I believe that is the clearest way for us to get an investigation of these allegations and we should open an investigation of these allegations.”
I sat through those hearings. Brett Kavanaugh lied to the U.S. Senate and most importantly to the American people. He was put on the Court through a sham process and his place on the Court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice.
He must be impeached.

The New York Times ultimately issued an apology and retracted key aspects of the story after the alleged victim claims to have no memory of the incident.
