Kamala Harris Officially Ranked Least Popular Vice President in American History
VP has just 28 percent approval rating
Vice President Kamala Harris's approval numbers have tanked, giving her a “historic low" status.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden's numbers have been plummeting, most notably after his disastrous Afghanistan withdrawal.
But at the current moment, Harris has just 28 percent approval.
But Harris was never seen as a popular choice, as one USA TODAY opinion columnist wrote:
“Biden-Harris. This is a match made in, well, about as far from heaven as you can get.
"More like at a public execution."
Harris' time as attorney general of California was, in the most simple terms, somewhat corrupt.
The New York Times wrote in 2019:
“Most troubling, Ms. Harris fought tooth and nail to uphold wrongful convictions that had been secured through official misconduct that included evidence tampering, false testimony, and the suppression of crucial information by prosecutors."
Harris's past should make her disapproval unsurprising.
Biden tapped harris to handle the border crisis, which she failed to visit at the time.
When she did finally visit, her comments were confusing and did not help the situation.
“I want to be clear to folks in this region who are thinking about making that dangerous trek to the United States-Mexico border: Do not come. Do not come,” she said.
Even White House officials were confused.
“There was a hope inside the White House that this trip would be a success, and by the end of it, there was concern that it was perhaps overshadowed by her answers to some of those questions,” one official said.
One Democratic strategist said, “She is going to be haunted by this trip and this issue for as long as she is in politics.”
Harris has now essentially earned lower than Vice President Dick Cheney’s.
Even Harris’s staff have voiced their concerns.
“I don’t think she’s got a stranglehold on the party,” one of her former staffers told Insider.
