Since the first debate between vice president Mike Pence and Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris, voters in a recent poll have found Harris to be abrasive and condescending. Pollster Frank Luntz sat down with Fox News to share more.
Luntz had monitored the reactions of 15 undecided voters from eight battleground states. He went on to say that the voters felt the two nominees were significantly more cordial to each other than President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden. They preferred the tenor of the vice presidential debate to the first debate.
“The complaint about Mike Pence was that he was too tired, but [he was] vice-presidential, or presidential. If this is a battle over style and substance — which is often the case with undecided voters because they simply do not choose on policy, they also choose on persona — this was Mike Pence’s night,” Luntz explained.
The two clashed over coronavirus, the Amy Coney Barrett nomination, and taxes throughout the night. While Harris claimed that Americans have witnessed the greatest failure of any presidential administration, Pence argued that from the very first day, President Donald Trump has put the health of the American people first.
While voters were frustrated that the vice president repeatedly ran over his allotted time, Harris’ reactions to Pence speaking left the voters far angrier with her performance. The smiling, the smirking, and the scowling left voters agitated.
The polls also clarified that voters felt both candidates were not answering the questions as well as they would have liked. Luntz went on to explain that voters felt Harris and Pence were both ducking the questions and pivoting.
The polls also revealed that Harris comes off fake and insincere. But hey, any criticism of a female Democrat just forces the radical left to claim that this is the root of deep-seated sexism by the right. Harris seems just fine when giving political speeches, but always has trouble connecting with the audience, particularly interviewers or political opponents.
In the past, Harris has been despised by the radical left for her criminal prosecution excesses, and is characterized as a person who is arrogant, aloof, and uncharismatic. During the debates, Pence was far more polite than Harris. He opened with a greeting and thanking her, the moderator, and the venue. He even had actual praise for her at one point. However, no one can seem to find a time where she actually said anything nice about him.
“It was clear that Mike Pence was the winner of tonight’s confrontation,” Luntz said.
