Stuart Varney, host of “Varney & Co.,” discussed Democrats’ anxiety regarding President Biden’s chances of winning a second term. He highlighted concerns about Biden’s age and frailty, which have been reflected in polls. Varney noted that Democrats seem to be focusing on Vice President Kamala Harris as a potential solution to boost their electoral prospects. Some prominent Democrats, including former Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Maryland Democrat Jamie Raskin, have refrained from offering strong endorsements of Harris. The L.A. Times suggests a scenario where Harris could step aside and become a senator, making California Governor Gavin Newsom the new vice president. However, convincing Harris to agree to this remains a challenge, as identity politics come into play, and polls indicate mixed public sentiment about her readiness for the presidency.
