Vice Presidential candidate Kamala Harris’s acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention concluded with a virtual audience applauding her address. Except the audience appears to have contained several duplicates in a testament to Harris’s lack of popularity.
After Harris’s nearly 20-minute speech on the third night of the Democratic National Convention (DNC), where she formally accepted her nomination for Vice President, convention organizers had Harris interact with a virtual audience of 30 screens.
The evident lack of enthusiasm from the party surrounding the speech, where Harris slammed “Donald Trump’s failure of leadership,” was made even worse in light of Harris being the first woman of color to accept a Vice Presidential nomination on behalf of Democrats.
And the DNC’s inability to gather 30 unique individuals to show support for Harris at one of the most important speeches during the 2020 campaign doesn’t bode well for the Biden-Harris ticket at the polls – especially since the Vice Presidential pick plays a disproportionately important role alongside Joe Biden given his declining cognitive ability and self-admitted position as a “transition candidate.”
But it’s not entirely surprising.
