Vice President Kamala Harris downplayed reports that she is the worst-rated vice president in American history by claiming that there are polls that show she has “great” approval ratings.
Harris made the remarks during an ABC News interview when asked by left-wing ABC News reporter Linsey Davis about her dismal approval ratings.
“There are reports that say you have the lowest approval rating of any vice president,” Davis said. “I’m curious — how much of a role, if any, that you feel race and gender play in that?”
“Well, there are polls that also say I have great approval ratings,” Harris claimed with a smile on her face. “I think the point that has to be made is that there are attempts to create distractions away from the accomplishments of our administration.”
“We’ve created over 13 million jobs since we’ve been in office,” Harris added — while not mentioning that many of those jobs were people going back to work after the pandemic. “Joe Biden and I have been responsible for 800,000 new manufacturing jobs in the United States, not to mention what we have done to restore America’s integrity on the international stage.”

Last month, Harris received the lowest net-negative rating of any vice president in the history of NBC News’ polling.
“Data Download: The number of the day is … 32%,” the poll said. “That’s the share of registered voters in a new NBC News poll who say they have a positive view of Vice President Kamala Harris. That’s compared with 49% who have a negative view of her, including 39% who have a ‘very negative’ view.”
“Harris’ net-negative rating (-17) is the lowest for any vice president in the poll’s history,” the report added.
