Previously Rabid Fans Of Kamala Harris Are Losing Faith

Vice President Kamala Harris’ online fan club, who reportedly call themselves the “KHive” on Twitter, are losing faith in her as her poll numbers continue their steep decline.

Left-wing news outlet The Daily Beast spoke with several members of the “KHive” — which is named after the far more popular BeyHive, an online fan club dedicated to singer Beyoncé — and found that many of the members do not support the vice president nearly as vehemently as they once did.

In discussing their growing discontent with Harris, some argued that she just did not live up to their ideals as a social justice reformer.

“I would never, ever say that I regret supporting the first Black woman vice president, ever. But the disappointment is real,” noted one self-described former KHive member. “I was obsessed with the idea of this person who could undo the systemic, the systematic racism and sexism and heterosexism in government with one fell swoop, and now I’m thinking to myself, did I just make up a person in my head who could do those things?”

Another person revealed that many KHive members had simply moved on, choosing to support other Democrat politicians.

“Her supporters continue to defend her from unfair, baseless attacks, but now that she’s in office, they have largely pivoted to helping elect more Democrats at the federal, state, and local levels who will provide support for the Biden-Harris policy agenda,” said Chris Evans, who under the handle @NotCapnAmerica has been one of the most visible members of the #KHive with over 82k followers.

Many members of the KHive also apparently got tired of attacking and fighting with fans of other candidates and of getting attacked in return.

“We all went a little nuts during the pandemic,” said another member who stated that they were trying to avoid “my ten-millionth flamewar with some #BernieBot that just gives us both palpitations.”

Since the Daily Beast article was published, many KHive members on Twitter have swarmed to attempt to discredit the article’s claims, saying that it “is a media campaign to erase and vilify VICE PRESIDENT Kamala Harris, and to give her the ‘no one likes her’ Hillary treatment.”

They are also attacking the article’s author, Scott Bixby, for supposedly “twisting people’s words around.”

Prior to the 2020 election, Harris was not very popular. Since then, that problem has only gotten worse, as the vice president has continued to lose support following a series of scandals and embarrassing gaffes — which have caused her poll numbers to drop steadily since assuming office. In a poll from August of 2021, a majority of Americans said that they do not believe Harris is qualified to assume the duties of the presidency if she were asked to do so.

Her gaffes have only strengthened that belief for many Americans, as Harris has been the subject of brutal mockery on social media over her “word salads.” In several instances, the vice president has gone viral for rambling, incoherent speeches in which she repeats phrases over and over without actually making a point.
