Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., took the political world by storm when she pegged 2020 rival Joe Biden on the national stage in the first Democratic debate.

CNN’s Van Jones declared after the debate that “… a star was born.”
But it turns out that Harris’ viral, made-for-TV moment wasn’t the campaign turning point CNN had hoped.
Her star power, or what she ever had of it, quickly faded — along with her shot at the presidency.
A stunning poll and a top campaign aide’s resignation, both within a few days of each other, proves that her 2020 run is dead.
The latest Hill-HarrisX poll has the California candidate at just two percent… which is four percent behind the latest candidate to announce his run, former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg!
And it turns out that she’s losing to Bloomberg in more ways than one.
Harris former state operations director, Kelly Mehlenbacher, deserted the campaign this week — and wrote a scathing resignation letter to go with her departure.
She wrote, “This is my third presidential campaign and I have never seen an organization treat its staff so poorly.”
And shortly after quitting, she jumped ship to Bloomberg’s campaign.
Mehlenbacher said Harris and company have no real plan to win.
“I no longer have confidence in our campaign or its leadership,” she wrote.
The New York Times interviewed dozens of Harris’ staff members — past and present — many of whom blame either Harris, her sister and campaign chairwoman, Maya Harris, or the campaign manager, Juan Rodriguez, for the poorly run candidacy.
