It’s not a secret that millions of Americans believe that Vice President Kamala Harris is not only an unlikeable person, but she’s also clearly not very good at performing the duties of her elected position.
According to the New York Post, those feelings have been confirmed in the latest polling data using the Real Clear Average of surveys, as it shows the vice president with an underwater favorability rating — meaning more people view her unfavorably than favorably, which is not a title that any politicians wants, let alone the vice president of the United States.
As it stands, Harris’ average favorability rating is at 44.3%, while her unfavorable average rating stands at 46.3%, meaning she’s at a -2 underwater favorability rating.
What’s even more humiliating is that her boss, President Joe Biden, is experiencing his own troubles with polling, but Harris’ numbers are so bad that, weirdly enough, it makes Biden look like he’s a high performer.
Currently, Biden has a 51.8% favorability average, with only a 42.8% unfavorable average, which puts him lightyears past Harris’ underwater favorability situation.
It shouldn’t come as a surprise, though, that Harris is not making the best impression on the American public just over six months into office, as she’s already botched a number of key issues that have undoubtedly contributed to her embarrassing numbers.
One of those issues is the immigration crisis at the southern U.S. border. Harris, who was put in charge of investigating the “root causes” of the immigration crisis, had nothing less than a string of bad press after her visit to Guatemala and Mexico. As of this writing, the immigration crisis continues to spin out of control, marking her efforts as what appears to be a total failure.
More recently, Harris took a salvo of devastating press coverage from a normally friendly press corps after reports emerged that described her office as a “toxic” work environment.
Only time will tell if Harris is able to dig her way out of a mess that she has clearly created, but it’s likely becoming painfully obvious to many of those who voted for her why she dropped out of the 2020 presidential election before the first caucus even took place.
