(FixThisNation.com) – Vice President Kamala Harris has frequently been sent by the White House to deal with a number of controversial decisions in GOP states. When state Republicans in Tennessee voted for the expulsion of Democratic lawmakers it was Harris that was sent to deal with this decision. When controversial guidelines for teaching in Florida were passed, Harris was the one to visit Jacksonville and blast the “extremists” who were trying to force their “propaganda” on the children in the state.

In the past few months, Harris has taken on the role of attack dog, often fighting for the White House and blasting Republicans for their extremist policies. This is all while she is preparing with President Biden for what is expected to be a tough presidential campaign year.

Despite Harris’ efforts, Americans hold an unfavorable view of the vice President and her popularity appears to be even lower. While this might be a problem for the current elections, strategists have claimed that in the long run, this is greatly going to benefit Harris.

As one strategist pointed out, her role is perfect as she gets to attack other Republicans like former President Donald Trump and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis while at the same time preparing for the possibility that in 2028, she will run for the White House on her own. Her current role increases her visibility and those who are voting in the Democratic primary race in 2028 will already be more familiar with Harris. The strategist further pointed out that this is a role that she is comfortable fulfilling while she has not been as able to relay her views about the future.
