A new poll has revealed most Americans believe Vice President Kamala Harris has failed in leading the nation’s response to the immigration crisis.
The new Harvard CAPS-Harris Poll, taken June 15 to 17 from more than 2,000 registered voters, asked, “Do you think vice president Kamala Harris has done a good job, adequate job, or a bad job tackling the root causes of illegal immigration?”
The poll found 44 percent saying she has done a “bad job,” 30 percent a “good job,” and 26 percent an “adequate job,” the survey notes.
Another question asked, “Do you think the Biden Administration executive orders on immigration encourage or discourage illegal immigration?”
Among those surveyed, 68 percent said President Joe Biden’s orders encouraged illegal immigration. Only 32 percent agreed they did not.
Nearly six months into Biden’s term, another question asked, “Is the flood of tens of thousands of unaccompanied minor children the fault of the Biden administration or the Trump administration?”
About two-thirds (61 percent) believed it was the fault of the Biden administration, with 39 percent responding it was the fault of the Trump administration.
These responses likely reflect those of many other Americans who see Biden and Harris struggling to respond to an immigration crisis of their own making.
