A new poll released on Tuesday showed that a majority of voters do not think Vice President Kamala Harris has what it takes to be president, if she ever had to assume the office.

Rasmussen conducted the new survey.

Harris Unpopular, Not Viewed As Competent

Rasmussen reported, “Vice President Kamala Harris hasn’t improved her standing with voters, more that half of whom have a negative opinion of her and don’t think she’s ready to take over if President Joe Biden leaves office.”

“A new national telephone and online survey by Rasmussen Reports finds that 39% of Likely U.S. voters have a favorable impression of Harris, including 19% who have a Very Favorable opinion of the vice president,” Rasmussen noted.

“That’s slightly down since August, when 41% had a favorable impression of Harris,” Rasmussen observed. “Fifty-seven percent (57%) of voters now view the vice president unfavorably, including 50% who have a Very Unfavorable impression of her.”

That latter figure is enormous. Especially if Harris thinks she can take the reins of the Democrat Party in 2024.

55 percent of U.S. voters “don’t think the vice president is qualified for the top job,” and 46 percent say she is “not at all qualified” for the duties of the presidency.

Rasmussen revealed that only 40 percent of voters think Harris has what it takes to become leader of the free world, including 23 percent who view her as “very qualified.”

Not surprising, 74 percent of Democrats believe Harris would be a quality president.
