Ever since Democratic nominee Joe Biden selected Kamala Harris as his running mate, liberals have been itching to see the former prosecutor go head to head against Vice President Mike Pence. “Kamala Harris will shred Mike Pence in the vice presidential debate,” The Nation wrote within 24 hours of Biden’s VP announcement. “About half of Americans believe Kamala Harris is a better debater than Mike Pence,” a YouGov poll found. And “Kamala Harris is as eager to destroy Mike Pence as you are to watch her do it,” LGBTQ Nation reported in August.
Though giddy Democrats anticipate a bloodbath, Harris will face an uphill battle.
