Kamala Harris’ Michigan trip backfires after she made things worse instead of better for Biden

The Biden campaign finds itself in real trouble with several different groups.

The problem is perhaps most obvious in the Wolverine State.

And Kamala Harris’s trip to Michigan blew up in her face after making things worse for the Biden campaign.

Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are facing massive headwinds in the state of Michigan.

As pro-Palestinian protests rage on college campuses, Biden’s political peril continues to mount.

On the one hand, the protests are highly unpopular.

By a margin of nearly two to one, Americans are more likely to strongly or somewhat oppose (47%) than support (28%) pro-Palestinian protesters.

But importantly, this generally negative sentiment isn’t universally shared.

According to a recent YouGov poll, American Muslims support the protests by 75% to 14%, as do those under the age of 45 by a margin of 40% vs. 19%.

Biden only won the state of Michigan after a lengthy vote count was completed days after the 2020 election and he has faced erosions in support from just about every demographic subgroup.

He needs the support of the Muslim community and younger voters in Michigan to win in November, but if he caters to their radical pro-Hamas posturing, he risks alienating everyone else.

So instead, Biden is taking a mealy-mouthed approach that both sides find unsatisfying.

Against this backdrop, Kamala Harris just traveled to Michigan.

But if the plan was for Kamala to save the day, then Team Blue needs to come up with a new plan, and fast, because she may have just alienated another group central to Democrats’ November hopes.

Harris pushes cash for Bidenmobiles but Michiganders know better

Vice President Kamala Harris arrived in Michigan to announce $100 million for small and medium-sized auto parts manufacturers to upgrade their facilities and train their workforce.

While on the surface this may sound like a good way to win votes, the devil is in the details.

That’s because the funds are just the latest initiatives meant to cajole the populace into a transition to electric vehicles.

The problem is that, according to Pew Research, nearly half of U.S. adults say they are not very or not at all likely to consider purchasing an EV, while another 13% say they do not plan to purchase a vehicle.

The trend isn’t a friend for Bidenmobile proponents either.

Pew Research reports that the share of the public interested in purchasing an EV is down 4% in the last two years.

Michigan voters and workers are also keenly aware that switching to electric vehicles is predicted to kill UAW jobs.

While these workers have traditionally voted for Democrats, that has become less true in recent years.

UAW research director: “Jobs will be eliminated when we make a transition to electric vehicles”

UAW research director Jennifer Kelly said earlier this year, “The workers who are making engines and transmissions today, their jobs will be eliminated when we make a transition to electric vehicles.”

Jim Farley, the CEO of Ford, said that electric vehicles will require 40 percent less labor to produce than traditional automobiles.

Kamala Harris’ latest announcement may well prove to be far from the vote-getter that she and her boss are hoping for.

The latest Real Clear Politics polling average for the state of Michigan continues to show a Trump advantage.

For those looking for a change from the past four years, here’s to hoping Biden and Harris keep right on talking.
