Joe Biden, Kamala Harris Both See Bad Polling

Maybe Kamala Harris could just increase her popularity by doing for the public what she did to increase her popularity with Willie Brown.

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.

A midterm visit by the vice president to a congressional district is generally a way to create crowds and win attention for candidates, but Harris's polling numbers are raising questions about how she might be used as Democrats seek to hold on to slim majorities in the House and Senate.

"As of right now, I think she has the potential of doing more harm than good for some of these candidates," said one Democratic strategist. "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 strategist added.

Her unpopularity is worse than 48% unfavorable. It's 40% very unfavorable. Per the Telegraph World News:

An Economist/YouGov poll found 41 per cent of voters aged 18-29 had an "unfavourable" view of Ms Harris, with only 36 per cent viewing her "favourably."


Of the 48 per cent in the Economist/YouGov poll who viewed the vice president "unfavourably," the vast majority [40 per cent] said they did so "very unfavourably."

RedState's Joe Cunningham notes she is "the most unpopular vice president since the 1970s."

The ABC poll from last week showed Biden below 50% on job approval, falling to 46%.

A new Economist/YouGov poll shows Biden failing in specific policy and leadership categories:

39% of those polled think Joe Biden says what he believes; 44% think he says what people want to hear;

38% are confident "in Joe Biden's ability to deal wisely with an international crisis," while 46% are "uneasy";

41% think Joe Biden is "honest and trustworthy" but 42% thinks he is not;

The nation is split on whether Biden actually "cares" about people like them;

Only 21% think Biden can bring the country together; 53% do not;

51% think Biden is "liberal" or "very liberal" and only 27% think he is "moderate."

Keep in mind this massive survey of 2,000 Americans was conducted between July 24 and 27, those were the days before the chaos that has since erupted over the Delta variant.

Question: Why do pollsters deliberately avoid asking the public if they believe that Joe Biden's mental acuity is firm enough to be president?

This is a huge topic of conversation. But pollsters refuse to ask questions about it.

Why?

That's a rhetorical "why." The answer is obvious: Pollsters are trying to protect Biden by gaslighting citizens into thinking this is not a frequent question other Americans ask, and is not a "valid" or well-predicated question.

They're trying to convince Americans that Biden's mental acuity is beyond approach by insisting there simply no valid questions to even ask about it.
