    What is the Harris base?

    I suspect a lot of the hype is white liberals who are not exactly lacking a voice in the media blowing her up. It's very much like Get Out "I'd have voted for Obama three times if I could" type liberal.

    Mayor Pete seems to draw the same support.

    I'm kind of shocked Harris ever was as high as 17% (not a slight on her intended)

    She's been consistently polling around 5-10% the whole time.

    Yeah I’ve never really understood who she appeals to either. The moderates want an ‘electable’ white male and the left don’t want a prosecutor.

    I think she appeals to people who don't actually think that deeply about politics but watch the news/late night. It struck me in the debates how she is pretty good at soundbites. Until the debates I didn't understand why she was even a contender at all.

    I still genuinely think she could end up with the nomination. When it becomes a 5-6 horse race **** will probably get crazy.

    I thought the regular white libs are mainly going with Biden. In fact, I think Harris' (and Booker's) base are mainly Black so far - but I maybe wrong.

    Biden is doing fine when it comes to black voters, yeah reliant on older black people but old people do win elections.

    I don't think any of the other front runners are doing great with black voters,,,Mayor Pete especially.

    The tweeners in that case. So I'm guessing people on the center-left, but are very left-wing on certain social policy (and also agonisingly woke). Niall on the money in that regard.

    of course it's not the ideology, he is just a poor, misguided, mentally ill soul who has been left behind by society...blame the vicious anti-fascists, the out-of-touch liberal elite and rampant, unchecked immigration if you need to blame someone/something...sorry forgot one other important root cause, the mainstream media which propagates fake news all the time...

    Doesn't mean much, but goodness Neera Tanden is probably the most obnoxious democrat hack about.
