Former White House strategist Steve Bannon is sounding the warning bells after a new poll revealed just how bad things are for Joe Biden.
During an episode on The War Room podcast, Bannon cited a Wall Street Journal poll showing that only 27% of Americans believe Biden’s administration is on the right track.
A massive 63% of Americans believe the Biden administration is on the wrong track.
“There’s a rule of thumb in politics on right-track, wrong-track. If you get down to around a third right track, two-thirds against you, that’s too big a headwind. That’s what we had in ’16 when I stepped in, I said hey, it’s two-thirds, one-third under Obama. She’s [Hillary’s] done. Plus all these other points show people want a leader like Trump,” Bannon said.Advertisement
“27% is unprecedented ladies and gentlemen. These are numbers that have not been seen before. This is worse than when Nixon was walking out to the helicopter. These are unprecedented numbers. Talk about killing the crib. Eviscerated. This administration is done. You can’t come back from numbers like this,” Bannon added.
Things are going equally as bad for Kamala Harris.
Another top aide from Harris’ inner circle at the White House is leaving her position.
Symone Sanders, a senior adviser to Harris and her chief spokesperson, announced that she will leave the White House at the end of the year.
“Symone has served honorably for 3 years. First as a valuable member of the President‘s 2020 presidential campaign, then as a member of his transition team and now deputy assistant to the President and senior advisor/chief spokesperson to the Vice President,” the White House said.
The official said 31-year-old Sanders will be “working through the end of the year.”

There’s more chaos at the White House following reports of a serious feud between Kamala Harris and Joe Biden.
Ashley Etienne, Harris’ communications chief, has left her position at the White House to ”pursue other opportunities,” Vanity Fair reports.
Etienne — a former staffer to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and former President Barack Obama — joined Harris’ team shortly after the 2020 election.
”Ashley is a valued member of the vice president’s team who has worked tirelessly to advance the goals of this administration,” the official said. ”She is leaving the office in December to pursue other opportunities.”

Rumors are flying that Biden’s administration is at least looking into the idea of replacing Harris as vice president and having her nominated to serve on the U.S. Supreme Court.

White House insiders are painting a picture of total chaos and discontent between Biden and Harris, according to CNN.
“Kamala Harris is a leader but is not being put in positions to lead,” a top Democratic donor said. “[Biden] should be putting her in positions to succeed, as opposed to putting weights on her. If you did give her the ability to step up and help her lead, it would strengthen you and strengthen the party.”
The CNN report also claims there’s a rumor that Biden has considered booting Harris from the vice presidency altogether and nominating her to a Supreme Court vacancy.
“That chatter has already reached top levels of the Biden orbit, according to one person who’s heard it,” CNN reported.
CNN’s report claims Biden allies in the administration have avoided dealing with Harris because they see “entrenched dysfunction and lack of focus” from her.
“She’s perceived to be in such a weak position that top Democrats in and outside of Washington have begun to speculate privately, asking each other why the White House has allowed her to become so hobbled in the public consciousness, at least as they see it,” the report said. “Republicans and right-wing media turned Harris into a political target from the moment she was picked for the ticket. And implicit racism and sexism have been constant.”
Allies to Harris have essentially accused members of Biden’s circle of being racist for not defending her.
A former Harris staffer, who spoke to current aides and Harris allies, said, “It’s hard to miss the specific energy that the White House brings to defend a white man, knowing that Kamala Harris has spent almost a year taking a lot of the hits that the West Wing didn’t want to take themselves.”

Over the summer, a new survey revealed that several Democrat strategists are alarmed at Harris’ sinking poll numbers and are questioning whether she would actually harm the party in the 2022 midterm elections.
With Harris being so unpopular, strategists worry that she won’t be able to help Democrats on the campaign trail next November.
Harris has become the most unpopular vice president six months into an administration since at least the 1970s.
