Kamala Harris (CA) like the invincible presidential candidate. Her polling numbers rose significantly after she broadsided frontrunner Joe Biden in the opening round. She also saw a nice boost in fundraising. But the last two months have seen the Harris campaign endure an embarrassing freefall. Her polling numbers have tanked, she's lost a significant amount of support from key Democratic voting blocs, and was on the receiving end of a brutal smackdown from Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (HI) at the second debate over her troubling criminal justice record.

Donald Trump has branded Joe Biden as "Sleepy Joe." That came as something of a surprise to me, as I expected "Creepy Joe," based on Biden's well-publicized creepy invasions of female personal spaces. But who am I to second-guess Trump when it comes to branding political opponents. Every time I see Jeb Bush, I still think "Low Energy Jeb." And "Crazy Bernie" just seems to fit so well I barely remember his last name. "Crooked Hillary" did the trick.

Democrats have a real problem on their hands. Almost all of the energy is in the Bernie wing of the party, but rank and file Democrats are bothered by the fact that Bernie isn't even a party member.
