Alarming Poll: Majority of Voters Think Biden’s VP Will Assume Office

U.S.A.-(AmmoLand.com)- If Joe Biden’s announcement that anti-gun California Sen. Kamala Harris will be his running mate caused alarm among gun owners, a recent Rasmussen survey could ignite a national anxiety attack.

According to Rasmussen, 59 percent of likely voters think “it is likely Biden’s running mate will be president before the end of Biden’s four-year term.” Thirty-nine percent of those respondents think it is “very likely,” the polling firm reported.

The survey was conducted Aug. 6 and 9 with a margin of sampling error of +/- 3 percent.

An earlier Rasmussen survey published June 29 revealed that 38 percent of likely voters believe Biden is suffering “from some form of dementia.” Forty-eight percent disagreed and 14 percent weren’t sure, but that was then.

Right now, 59 percent of Democrats “attach more importance to Biden’s running mate than Republicans (32%), Rasmussen said. Forty-three percent of Independent voters think it’s important.

According to the Washington Examiner, Biden picked Harris “after an extensive vetting process.” There should be no doubt part of that process was to reaffirm the senator’s fanaticism toward gun control, according to several observers.

As recalled by On The Issues, during the Democratic Primary debate in Houston on Sept. 12, 2019—the same debate during which ex-Congressman Beto O’Rourke made his infamous blurt about confiscating privately-owned semiautomatic rifles—Harris was asked if a buyback should be mandatory.

Her response, as transcribed by On The Issues: “Five million assault weapons are on the streets of America today. During the course of this debate, eight people will die from gun violence. We need action, and Congress has had years to act and failed because they do not have the courage. When I'm elected, I'll give them 100 days to pull their act together, put a bill on my desk for signature and if they don't, I will take executive action and put in place a comprehensive background check requirement and ban the importation of assault weapons into our country, because it is time to act.

“The idea that we would wait for Congress, which has just done nothing to act [on gun control], is just overlooking the fact that every day in America, our babies are going to school to have drills where they are learning about how they have to hide in a closet or crouch in a corner if there is a mass shooter roaming the hallways of their school.”

On another debate occasion, On The Issues noted, Harris had this to say: “If by my 100th day in office Congress fails to put a bill on my desk, I'm prepared to take executive action. Anyone who sells more than five guns a year will be required to perform background checks. I'm prepared to direct the ATF to remove the licenses of gun dealers who fail to follow the law. 90% of guns associated with crime have been sold by 5% of the gun dealers. We need to take their licenses away.”

When Harris was serving as California state attorney general, she was sued in federal court by the Second Amendment Foundation and Calguns Foundation, along with three private citizens. The California Department of Justice was also a defendant.

This lawsuit, known as Silvester v. Harris, challenged the state law requiring gun owners to wait at least ten days before taking possession of an additional firearm. The logic was that a gun owner already had a firearm, so it was silly to subject that individual to a waiting period in an effort to prevent so-called “spur-of-the-moment” crimes.

The New York Times reported Tuesday evening that Biden and Harris will appear together in Delaware and hold a “virtual grass-roots fund-raiser Wednesday evening.”

As an indication of how far to the left the NY Times has drifted, the newspaper described Harris as “a pragmatic moderate who spent most of her career as a prosecutor.” She took office in the Senate in 2017.

In a separate report, the Times described Biden as having “relatively centrist instincts.”

The Washington Post quickly published a puff piece talking about Harris’ background, calling her “a quick learner and gifted political performer with genuine star power.”

Should Biden win in November, he will be 79 when he takes office. If he is suffering from dementia, or fall to some other malady, the question would be when Harris might take over.

Biden has made no secret of his hostility toward the Second Amendment. Neither has Harris. Having them on the Democratic ticket might be all the motivation gun owners need to get off the couch and vote this year.

The chore now for grassroots gun rights activists is to make sure their friends and family members are registered to vote, and then get to the polls or fill out a mail-in ballot and deliver it to a polling place, because Harris’ addition to the party ticket underscores the warning to gun owning voters that this year’s election truly is for “all the marbles” with the Second Amendment hanging in the balance.

Biden will be medically retired from office when they have him do a cognitive test.

I think what has really disturbed me watching Biden has jelled over the last few days. When he accepted his nomination the other day he seemed like a five year old. “Look! It’s my birthday!!!! And I got a party too!!!” Then last night I realized what it all was and it doesn’t spell good news for the Presidency. He is standing there in amazement because all this is happening to him. He isn’t a leader who is fashioning events to obtain his objectives, he is like a child and the world is circling him and thrusting the presidency upon… Read more »

The Supreme Court laid out the requirements for U.S. Citizenship in 1898. The first requirement is a person’s parents must be in the country legally and the second requirement is that they have a legal residence within the United States at the time of their birth. Every person who DOES NOT meet those two requirements IS NOT a U.S. Citizen of the United States.
United States v. Wong Kim Ark, 169 U.S. 649 (1898)
So, Yes she does appear to be a U.S. Citizen.

It is totally possible, a couple years into a Biden administration, that he announces that he will step down, probably for what is already recognized as cognitive issues. This, we would be told, would solely be for the welfare and benefit of the nation, and his sacrifice should be viewed as a patriotic demonstration of his dedication to freedom and democracy. And, gosh darn, Harris will have to step up and assume the awesome responsibility of guiding the country in such perilous times. Hide in the bushes and watch…

U.S. Citizen DefinitionCitizenship in the United States is a status that entails specific rights, duties, and benefits. U.S. citizenship is usually acquired by birth when a child is born in the territory of the United States. In addition to U.S. states, this includes the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Northern Mariana Islands and the U.S. Virgin Islands. There are two ways to become a U.S. citizen: by birth, in which a person is presumed to be a citizen provided that they are born within the territorial limits of the United States, or through citizenship of a parent, and naturalization,… Read more »

Not the issue. A “natural-born” citizen only needs to be born in the US (and thus did not need to go through the naturalization process at some stage latter in life) – regardless of parental citizenship. “Anchor babies” are an example of this, and this is an offshoot of the 14th amendment (aka “birthright citizenship”).

I am sure that is how it will be pushed and once again the 14th Amendment bite’s us in the ass. The last civil war still isn’t over and now we are going to have another one.

Kamala Harris was born in Oakland, California. She is legally entitled to hold office as president if she is elected. Go read the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution.

Why the 2 down votes? I followed the link and read the article. I guess I am just not too bright as I found Allen Korwin to be right on time. The suck part is Obama ever held office to start with.

Of course she will become President. Biden has Dementia and if elected, will probably only serve a few months if that, before being replaced by Harris. That’s been the plan all along. The DemocRATs don’t think anyone is smart enough to figure it out. And even if they did, there’s nothing that could be done to stop it. That’s why it’s so important that every gun owner get out and vote to reelect Trump / Pence. If they’re not reelected we will loose our right to keep and bear arms !

Remember when Obama picked Biden for VP? The joke was that he did it for self preservation.
He figured no one would assassinate him, because then Biden will be president and no body wanted that.

Biden has already had two brain surgeries in the past and it is only a matter of time that will catch up with him.
Electing him would be a grave mistake. Pun intended.

If the democrats happen to pull-off a miracle (with stuffed ballot boxes) and “Horizontal” Harris is awarded the Presidency, she will never finish her first term as the Government will have been dissolved via all-out civil war!

Unfortunately, the 14th. amendment “loophole” is in effect for her. Which was originally to give Citizenship to the slaves and their children, but has been misinterpreted ever since. From USA Today: “Harris is a citizen of the United States and has been since birth. She was born in Oakland, California, on Oct. 20, 1964, according to Encyclopedia Britannica. Her parents were both immigrants — her father from Jamaica and her mother from India. By virtue of her birth in California, Harris is a natural-born U.S. citizen. The Citizenship Clause of the 14th Amendment provides that “all persons born or naturalized in the United States… Read more »

My first thought was the deal was already negotiated and agreed upon between Biden, Harris, and the DNC. Harris will accept the VP spot, become Biden’s tip of the spear, and say/do anything to get him elected. Then, if Biden wins, he soon after resigns citing health reasons, resulting in President Kamala Harris. Biden gets to go down in history as one of our nation’s Presidents. Harris has the presidency handed to her, and goes down in history as the first woman, of color no less, POTUS. The DNC then gets to run her from the more powerful position of… Read more »
