A recent USA Today poll revealed that Vice President Kamala Harris has an approval rating of just 28 percent. That’s pretty good compared to her performance in the Democratic primaries. Defenders say that she’s got a lot on her plate, although in a hearing Tuesday, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas made it perfectly clear that Harris “is not the border czar.” That’s obvious; no one is in charge of the border.

National Review’s Charles C. W. Cooke has a great piece about Harris and why she’s so unlikeable.


Cooke writes:

Harris’s apologists like to insist that she is as unpopular as she is because she’s a non-white woman. But this explanation gets the cause of the disapproval backwards. Kamala Harris isn’t disliked because she’s a non-white woman; Kamala Harris was chosen as vice president because she’s a non-white woman, and she’s disliked because she has nothing to recommend her beyond those facts. In the highest of high dudgeon, her defenders will propose that this is Joe Biden’s fault, for not “using” Harris correctly in her role. But this too is unjust. In truth, there is no good way to “use” Kamala Harris, because Kamala Harris is a talentless mediocrity whose only political flair is for making things worse than they were before she arrived.

To be fair, we have no complaints about her performance as chair of the National Space Council.


We’ve seen rumors (and likely just rumors) that Democrats are trying to find someone to replace her already.
