I suspect the number of people who voted for Biden because they liked Harris was pretty small. Selecting her as his VP seems to have had very little impact upon Biden’s polling performance, which was consistently strong. More people will have voted for Biden because they like him, because of his association with Obama, or simply to get rid of Donald Trump.


I voted for Biden primarily to get rid of Trump, but I'm also glad that Biden picked Kamela Harris as his VP. Even if her record as a reformist prosecutor wasn't 100% unblemished, she's still in an excellent position to be a moderating voice in debates about police reform.


Biden didn't win.
The "Anyone but Trump Party" did.
Agreed.

She could do with more experience.

I consider her to be PE Biden's Padawan.

Her time will come, when the universe is ready...


It has been suggested that she may be installed if Joe Biden develops difficulties.
