Vice President Kamala Harris has a lower approval rating than former Vice President Mike Pence by a one-point margin in their respective first 100 days in office.
When a Fox News poll asked respondents Sunday whether they have a generally favorable or unfavorable opinion of the first female Vice President, Harris received a 49 percent approval rating.
As noted by Breitbart, Pence in April 2017 had a 50 percent approval rating.
Despite being one of the first serious contenders to drop out of the Democrat primary before being tapped for vice president, Harris was tasked by President Joe Biden with handling the southern border crisis, an issue upon which, according to the Fox News poll, the president has a weighty 34 percent approval rating.
Harris has matched the designated responsibility of the southern border crisis with a couple of recent actions in the past 33 days since assuming the duty. Her actions may correspond with her approval rating.
Harris announced April 25 she “will hold a virtual meeting with Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador on May 7 to discuss ‘migration’ but that will not be the main focus of the discussion,” Breitbart News reported. Instead, she will hold talks about planting trees.
When Harris was asked Friday when she might visit the southern border, she ignored the question. It has been 30 days since assuming the duty of the southern border.
As Joe Biden nears his 100th day in office, a new poll reveals that his approval rating is downright laughable, too.
According to a Washington Post-ABC News poll, Biden has a 52 percent approval rating at 100 days in office, which is the third-lowest since tracking began.
Of those who approve, 34% say they strongly approve and 18% say they somewhat approve.
The Daily Mail has more:
Of the 1,007 adults polled by phone for the survey, 42% say they disapprove of Biden’s job as president so far, with 35% saying they strongly disapprove and 7% saying they somewhat disapprove.
Forty percent of those polled last week say that Biden is voting too liberally for them.
Where he falls short, however, is with immigration, national security, and the border crisis.
Only 37% say they approve of his handling of the southern border while 53% say they disapprove.
Quite amazing that Biden has the third-lowest approval rating given he has just about the entire media on his side trying to help him with everything.
Despite that, a separate poll last week found that a majority of Americans believe cheating “likely” shifted the results of the 2020 presidential election.
According to Rasmussen Reports, 51 percent of Americans believe that cheating “likely” influenced the results of the 2020 presidential election.
The poll found that a stunning 35 percent of Americans believing it was “very likely” that cheating influenced the election results.
A strong majority of voters, 60 percent, believe that election security is more important than making it easier for people to vote.
Rasmussen Reports found:
- Seventy-four percent (74%) of Republicans believe it is likely last year’s presidential election was affected by cheating, a view shared by 30% of Democrats and 51% of voters not affiliated with either major party.
- Asked which is more important, making it easier for everybody to vote, or making sure there is no cheating in elections, 60% of Likely Voters say it’s more important to prevent cheating, while 37% said it’s more important to make it easier to vote.
- Only 22% of voters say it is currently too hard to vote, while 34% said it’s too easy to vote, and 41% say the level of difficulty in voting is about right.
- Majorities of all racial groups – 59% of whites, 56% of Blacks, and 63% of other minority voters – say it is more important to make sure there is no cheating in elections than to make it easier to vote.
- Likewise, majorities of all racial groups – 64% of whites, 59% of Blacks, and 58% of other minority voters – reject the claim that voter ID laws discriminate against some voters.
- Among voters who say it’s Very Likely that cheating affected the 2020 election outcome, 92% say it’s more important to prevent cheating than to make it easier to vote.
Here’s the best stat of all: 75 percent say requiring voters to show photo identification such as a driver’s license before being allowed to vote is necessary to “a fair and secure election process.”
