Poll: Kamala Harris is the Most Unpopular Vice President in Decades

by Vianca Rodriguez

Despite typical division along party lines, Republicans and Democrats agree on one thing: Kamala Harris is one of the most unpopular Vice Presidents in the United States since the 1970s. 

The most recent ratings show record lows for the vice president, with 47-48 percent who disapprove of her performance at the White House versus 46 percent who approve, according to recent polling by YouGov and RealClearPolitics

Despite that young people typically lean toward Democrats, young American voters ages 18-29 indicated low favorability of Harris. Only 36 percent found her favorable while 41 percent disapproved. Similar numbers were found among Hispanic voters. 

Compared with recent predecessors over the years such as Mike Pence, Joe Biden, Dick Cheney, and Al Gore, Kamala Harris’ first six months in office are faring poorly. 

Additionally, the Convention of States Action and Trafalgar Group’s most recent national survey indicates that a majority of voters and almost half of Democrats are not confident that Kamala Harris is ready to step into a leadership role that would be required of the President of the United States, lowering her chances of a 2024 bid.

Although she has spent several months touting her gender and unique ethnicity in order to garner support, as well as criticizing GOP-backed electoral integrity bills, Kamala Harris cannot bring even the most radical liberals to support her job performance.

Actress America Ferrera, who is an outspoken liberal and activist for Hispanic migrants, has denounced Kamala Harris for being “ineffective” and “disappointing.” She even accused the Biden Administration’s failure to deliver on treating illegal immigrants with “compassion and humanity” as being a “slap in the face.”

Coincidentally, the southern border crisis and the record-breaking migrant surge coupled with an incapability to keep the situation under control have played a key role in Harris’ unpopularity. 

In a desperate attempt to save her image, the Biden Administration will be sending the vice president abroad more frequently on foreign trips to try to improve her favorability.
