Vice President Kamala Harris appeared quite scared during an event where President Joe Biden, perhaps jokingly, got close to the edge of a stage.
During a Democratic Party event in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Biden concluded his remarks and walked toward the end of the stage and Harris was either acting very well or she was truly scared that Biden may fall off the stage while gesturing to the crowd.
In writing about the episode for Red State, Nick Arama gave his two cents: “Biden went to the end of the stage and made a motion as though to jump off the stage. Look at Kamala Harris as she first appears terrified and then decides to play it off as a joke halfway through. The look on her face is something else.”
“Even after he doesn’t jump, you can still see her concerned he might, or that he might fall off the stage, as she reaches out to him. She seems to indicate to him to get away from the edge of the stage,” Arama added in his story.

A New York Times/Siena College poll published on Monday claimed that Democratic Pennsylvania Senate nominee John Fetterman is leading Republican Mehmet Oz by 5 points.
“About 49 percent of likely voters surveyed support Fetterman while 44 percent back Oz. The results are similar to other polling showing leads the Democratic candidate has held over Oz for much of the campaign, including a 6-point advantage in a survey last week,” The Hill reported.
However, two pollsters who spoke to Fox News host Sean Hannity last week said that they have never seen this many black and Hispanic voters moving to the Republican Party.
“We consistently see where the African American vote, about 20% or more, are going for Republican candidates,” InsiderAdvantage chairman Matt Towery said of the midterm elections in Georgia and Pennsylvania.
“When it comes to either Hispanic, Latino or what we call other, sometimes it’s 60-something percent for the Republican,” he said. “These are things that we’ve never seen before. I’ve never seen Republican candidates getting 20% of the African American vote this close to an election. I certainly have never seen Hispanic, Latinos or other races trending Republican like I’m seeing in this particular year.”
Asian-American voters apparently turned against Democrats in the recall campaign against San Francisco District Attorney Chesa Boudin. Some Republicans believe that reported discrimination against Asian Americans in academic admissions is one issue driving the shift of Asian-Americans to vote for GOP candidates.
Republican Rep. Mayra Flores of Texas won a special election in a congressional district President Joe Biden carried by 13 points in June. Republican Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas told the Daily Wire Democrats were “privately panicking” about the loss of Hispanic voters to the GOP.
Robert Cahaly of Trafalgar noted that Republican Gov. Brian Kemp of Georgia and Republican Senate nominees Dr. Mehmet Oz of Pennsylvania and Herschel Walker of Georgia were performing well with black voters.
“The two states you mentioned are particularly interesting, with Walker doing 23% among black voters. Governor Kemp is doing 20,” he said. “What is really fascinating is how well Oz is doing. We’ve got Oz in the 30s and the only one in the country breaking 20% with African American women.”
The Republican candidate, Dr. Oz, who has been supported by former President Donald Trump, has taken the lead over his Democrat opponent John Fetterman, a recent poll showed.
The Wick Insights poll published Wednesday shows that 49.1 percent of the 1013 likely voters sampled are backing Oz, while 44.6 percent support Fetterman. Another 3.4 percent plan to vote for someone else, and 2.9 percent are undecided. A Fox 29/Insider Advantage poll from earlier this week showed the pair tied after Oz made significant gains in polls in recent months, and the current survey shows he has momentum in the home stretch.
In the governor’s race, Shapiro leads Mastriano by 2.1 percentage points, at 48.5 percent and 46.4 percent, respectively. Just 1.8 percent of respondents plan to vote for another candidate, and 3.4 percent are undecided. The Fox 29/Insider Advantage poll had the republican 7 points back.
