According to a new report from The Hill, VP Kamala Harris’ poor polling is triggering worries among Democrats.
Per the report:
In a trio of recent surveys, Harris earned a combined unfavorable rating of 46 percent, according to an aggregate average compiled by RealClearPolitics. That number is 3 points below Biden’s 43 percent in the same category.
In an Economist-YouGov poll conducted from July 24 to 27, Harris’s unfavorable figure reached 48 percent.
One Democratic strategist said, according to the report .“As of right now, I think she has the potential of doing more harm than good for some of these candidates. My sense is she’ll probably raise a lot of money and maybe she’ll go to some specific districts, but they’ll have to be really strategic with her.”
“She doesn’t have the standing at this moment to go to a lot of these tighter districts,” the source added.
Another Harris ally told the Hill “No one is coming out and saying she’s doing an amazing job, because the first question would be ‘On what?’ She’s made a bunch of mistakes and she’s made herself a story for good and bad.”
