Kamala Harris just made the one mistake that ended her Presidential campaign
Kamala Harris was the toast of Washington.
The California Democrat announced her Presidential campaign to great fanfare and fawning media coverage.
But in just one day Harris committed the mistake that brought her Presidential hopes crashing down.
Harris capped off her announcement tour with a town hall event hosted by fake news CNN.
Host Jake Tapper did not interview Harris so much as fawn over her.
However, even in a friendly setting with CNN filling the role of her campaign staff, Harris managed to make a fatal error.
Not only did Harris endorse “Medicare for All,” she came out in support of having the government take away the private health insurance of the 177 million Americans who currently purchase it or receive it through their employer.

This position plays well in Democrat primaries but it is death in a general election.
A recent Kaiser Family Foundation poll found just 37 percent of Americans support Medicare for All when told that it will eliminate private insurance.
Obamacare cost the Democrats the 2010, 2014 and 2016 elections.
Promising to rip away nearly 200 million Americans’ health care puts the Democrats on a losing trajectory for 2020.
