How Qualified?

Some of the questions asked in the survey were as follows, “Do you have a very favorable, somewhat favorable, somewhat unfavorable or very unfavorable impression of Kamala Harris?,” “In the Biden administration, will Kamala Harris play as important a role as Mike Pence played in the Trump administration?” and “How qualified is Kamala Harris to assume the responsibilities of the presidency?”
