ABC tries to blame Kamala Harris' historically low approval ratings on 'race and gender'

"Well, there are polls that also say I have great approval ratings."

ABC News anchor Linsey Davis suggested during an interview with Kamala Harris that the vice president’s dismal polling ratings could be due to "race and gender."
In an interview that aired on the network’s streaming platform Monday night, Davis in asking Harris about having "the lowest approval rating of any vice president" inquired, "I'm curious - how much of a role, if any, that you feel race and gender play in that?"

Harris replied, "Well, there are polls that also say I have great approval ratings."

The unpopular vice president continued, "I think the point that has to be made is that there are attempts to create distractions away from the accomplishments of our administration." 

A 2021 USA Today/Suffolk poll found Harris with the lowest approval rating of any modern-day vice president. A June Fox News poll had Harris at a 41 percent approval rating and a 56 percent disapproval rating.

By comparison, Dick Cheney, one of the most unpopular US vice presidents in polling history, hit 30 percent, but that was not until the end of former President George W. Bush's second term in 2007. 

According to The Telegraph, Harris' unpopularity is worse than former Vice President Mike Pence's was six months into the Trump presidency, which in 2017 had an unfavorability rating of 41.9 percent and a favorability rating of 42.1 percent.
