Vice President Kamala Harris has seen a significant drop in approval rating, sinking 18 points compared to President Joe Biden, according to a recent Trafalgar Group poll.
The poll indicated that only around 28 percent of likely voters approve of Harris while 62 percent disapprove, and that is in contrast to Biden’s ratings which indicate that 39 percent approve of the president and 55 percent disapprove.
According to Breitbart News, “Harris’s approval rating is underwater by 34 points. Biden’s deficit is 16 points. The net difference in their approval rating is 18 percentage points.”
This isn’t the only instance of Harris losing ground to the president, however, and the VP has polled behind Biden, here and here, in recent months. However, neither of those instances saw her dip with such a large margin.
The same poll showed that a majority (57 percent) “strongly disapprove” of Harris, and only 14 percent strongly approve, which makes for a 43 percent difference:

The abysmal approval rating doesn’t come as a surprise to many, especially conservatives who have watched with disillusionment as Harris has bungled assignments like border security.
Most recently, the Vice President created headlines when she took a trip to Poland to talk about the Russian invasion in Ukraine and seemed to have trouble reading her notes and expressing herself while speaking.
“I am here, standing here on the northern flank, on the eastern flank, talking about what we have in terms of the eastern flank and our NATO allies, and what is at stake at this very moment, what is at stake this very moment are some of the guiding principles.”
