A new YouGov poll finds only 54 percent of black Americans have a favorable view of Vice President Kamala Harris, the first black person to hold that position.
Only 29 percent had a “very favorable” view of Harris, a finding that complicates Democrat efforts to find a successor to Biden.
It also found 29 percent holding unfavorable views of Harris, which is a large unfavorable number among blacks for a Democrat.
Harris’ selection was speculated to be a move by Democrats to solidify their strongest voting bloc, black women.
But, as in her 2020 Democratic presidential primary campaign, Harris has failed to connect.
Many cite her detached, awkward style – similar to Hillary Clinton. Staffers and other insiders have also noted Harris fails to prepare for interviews or even familiarize herself with the topic she’s addressing, leading to rambling responses slammed a “word salad.”
The poll also found that among all American women only 43 percent held a favorable view of Harris while 49 percent held an unfavorable view.
