Vice president Kamala Harris is so unpopular that even voters in her liberal state of California don’t like her.
A new survey from the Berkeley Institute of Governmental Studies found that just 35 percent of Golden Staters approve of the floundering VP, Breitbart reported.
CA voters don’t like Harris: poll
The poll found that 45 percent of voters disapprove of Harris, while 21 percent had no opinion, an increase from 15 percent who offered no view in the previous poll.
The pollster, Mark DiCamillo, said that voters are “in a reevaluation mode” concerning Harris, whose rise to the vice presidency was celebrated by liberals as a historic event.
“It’s not as if they’ve all gone to disapproval. They’ve gone to having no opinion,” DiCamillo said. “That’s not as bad but certainly not good for the vice president in her home state.”
To add insult to injury, voters in the San Francisco Bay Area, where Oakland-born Harris launched her political career, don’t think highly of her either.
Only 38 percent of voters there like her — even less than the 52 percent who approve of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Ca.), who represents the city in Congress.
Biden not doing much better
Harris’s own White House bid flamed out after glossy media coverage failed to drum up popular enthusiasm for her candidacy. As vice president, she has invited mockery with her often babbling, nonsensical comments.
Her clear weaknesses have left many Democrats anxious about their hold on the White House, especially with President Biden’s approval ratings in sharp decline as well.
Biden is just barely cracking majority approval in the Berkeley poll, with 50 percent giving him a thumbs up. Two-thirds of California voters said the country is on the wrong track, with the worst inflation in forty years weighing heavily on the minds of consumers. California has the highest gas prices in the country, with drivers paying nearly $6 a gallon on average.
The president, who entered office promising steady leadership, competence, and accountability from the government, has desperately sought to blame the poor economy on Russia, using the term “Putin’s price hike” ad nauseum. Democrats are expected to pay a heavy price in the upcoming midterm elections.
The poll surveyed 8,676 California voters between March 29 and April 5 and has a margin of error of two percent.
