Vice President Kamala Harris has hit her lowest numbers yet in a new poll that reveals American concerns following the Biden-Harris administration’s failures in Afghanistan.
The new Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey found that only 43 percent of likely American voters think Harris is qualified to assume the duties of the presidency, including 29 percent who think she is “Very Qualified.”
That’s down from April, when 49 percent said Harris was qualified to become president. Now, 55 percent say Harris is not qualified to assume the duties of the presidency, including 47 percent who say she is “Not At All Qualified.”
The survey question asked, “How qualified is Kamala Harris to assume the responsibilities of the presidency?”
The report comes as Harris makes her first international trip to Asia, including a stop in Vietnam. The optics couldn’t be worse, as many are comparing the fall of Afghanistan to the fall of Saigon in the Vietnam War.
The vice president has also struggled during previous trips. Her El Paso, Texas, stop came only after much criticism and then just days ahead of a border visit by former President Donald Trump.
Her trip to address immigration included disastrous interviews, especially with Lester Holt from NBC News.
REPORTER: “Do you have any plans to visit the border?”
HARRIS: “We are going to the border, we’ve been to the border”
“You haven’t been to the border”
“And I haven’t been to Europe,” Harris jokes

Harris faces a tough battle ahead as she seeks to increase public opinion of her leadership. Biden’s policies are not making it any easier, leaving Harris in a difficult situation.
