Vice President Kamala Harris is once again suffering bad publicity with recent polling indicating that the majority of Americans don’t feel she’s “qualified” for the job of president.
According to a report in The Washington Examiner, Harris is prompting worry in voters who feel it’s possible she could have to take over for President Joe Biden.
Rasmussen Reports released a poll on Tuesday that indicated by a margin of 49% to 36% likely voters believe something will happen to 79-year-old Biden resulting in Harris taking the position of president. Included in that number are 41% of Democrats and 45% of independents.
The findings are just the most recent in a number of results that indicate unrest among Americans about the former senator and failed presidential candidate’s ability to lead.
Rasmussen questioned its test audience asking, “How qualified is Kamala Harris to assume the responsibilities of the presidency?”
In response 23% of likely voters said she was “very qualified,” 17% said “somewhat qualified,” 9% answered “not very qualified,” and 46% said she was “not qualified at all.”
That leaves the poll showing that 55% overall find her unqualified and about 40% find her qualified. Only a small 5 % had no opinion at all or were unsure.
This was a similar response to the percentage of confidence when voters were asked about the impression Harris had made on the public. 57%, said she made an “unfavorable” impression and 39% said she made a “favorable,” one.
“More government employees (51%) than private sector workers (41%) have a favorable impression of Harris. Harris gets the most favorable ratings from voters with graduate degrees and those with annual incomes of $200,000 or more,” the survey analysis read.
