Kamala Harris dropped out of the Democratic race.

California Senator Kamala Harris dropped out of the Democratic Primary due to low poll numbers and lack of funding on December 3rd.


While initially a top-tier candidate – -one point polling at 15%–when she dropped out Harris had only one fifth of the support she used to have in the polls.


Harris dropping out came on the heels of a New York Times piece on the mismanagement behind the scenes of her campaign.


Harris had split her campaign headquarters in to two with one facility focusing on states in the East based in Baltimore and another focusing on Western states in Oakland their was discord between the two campaign offices led by her sister Maya Harris and Campaign manager Juan Roderguiz.  


Another factor was Kamala’s failure to find a distinctive personality or message with her having changed come up with three new slogans and changing her position on healthcare. 


Critics of her campaign took special note of a proposal to make banning Donald Trump’s account for violating the Twitter terms of service part of her platform.


The campaign was rapidly hemorrhaging funds to the point of shutting down offices in New Hampshire, the 2nd state in the primaries to focus on Iowa. There were also massive layoffs of staff from her campaign across the board. 


She will join the ranks of candidates who have dropped out, which includes former Texan Representative Beto O’Rourke and Governors Jay Inslee, Steve Bullock, and John Hickenlooper.
