Kamala Harris is not just an ardent abortion activist who voted for infanticide and tried to put a pro-life advocate in prison for exposing the sale of aborted baby parts, she’s also seen by many Americans as grossly incompetent and having a smug, arrogant attitude. it’s those kinds of traits that likely make it so Harris is the most unpopular vice president in 50 years.

According to the Los Angeles Times, a new poll found “45% of registered voters had a favorable opinion of Harris and 48% had an unfavorable opinion — a net rating of -3 percentage points, according to a Times average.”

The Times indicates Harris’ rating is “lower than the ratings of three previous vice presidents. Joe Biden, Dick Cheney and Al Gore all began their tenures with higher ratings than Harris currently enjoys.”

The Daily Wire reports that Harris’ rating is worse than the pro-life vice president who preceded her:

The most recent YouGov tracking poll shows that Harris’ unfavorability rating has hit 49%, while her favorability rating sits at just 45%.

Harris’ unpopularity is worse than former Vice President Mike Pence’s was six months into his tenure, according to The Telegraph. The outlet reported that around this same time in 2017, Pence’s unfavorability rating sat at 41.9%, while his favorability rating was 42.1%. Pence may have been helped by a massive media focus on then-President Donald Trump and false accusations that he was a Russian agent who colluded with Russia to steal the 2016 election.

Last year, David Daleiden and the Center for Medical Progress filed a lawsuit accusing Vice President Kamala Harris, new HHS Secretary Xavier Becerra, the California Attorney General’s Office, Planned Parenthood and others of a conspiracy to violate their First and Fourteenth Amendment civil rights.

The lawsuit accuses Harris and Becerra, both former state attorneys general, of using a state video-recording law as a “political weapon” to silence free speech as a favor to Planned Parenthood, a close political ally.

The California Attorney General’s Office is pursuing felony charges against Daleiden and fellow CMP undercover investigator Sandra Merritt, claiming they broke the law by filming conversations with abortionists and others without their consent. Daleiden and Merritt are facing possible jail time and fines if convicted.

The charges began with Harris when she served as California attorney general. Documents reveal that Harris, while running for U.S. Senate in 2016, had a secret, in-person meeting with Planned Parenthood leaders to discuss the investigation; two weeks later, the California Department of Justice raided Daleiden’s home. Harris also received campaign donations from Planned Parenthood at the time.

Becerra continued to prosecute Daleiden when Harris was elected to the U.S. Senate and later became vice president. Becerra now also is a top leader in President Joe Biden’s administration.
