A USA TODAY/Suffolk University Poll released Thursday shows 52% of registered voters disapprove of the 59-year-old veep’s job performance, while only 36% approve, including a paltry 4% of Republicans and 28% of independents.

Harris’ numbers are worse than President Biden and former President Donald Trump.

Biden, 81, registered a lowly 41% approval rating and 55% disapproval rating, according to the poll.

Meanwhile, Trump, 77, was the only one of the three pols that received higher approval than disapproval marks – 49% to 47%, respectively.

The survey of 1,000 registered voters, conducted between March 8 and March 11, found that a majority have doubts about Harris’ ability to lead the nation should Biden – the oldest president in American history – need to step down.

Only 38% said Harris is qualified to serve as president, while 54% responded that she isn’t.

Those that don’t believe Harris can run the country include 92% of Republicans, 56% of independents, 37% of African Americans and 48% of Hispanics.

Unsurprisingly, Harris’ highest marks came from Democrats, of which, 76% approve of her job performance as vice president – 8 points behind Biden’s approval rating among members of his own party.

“As I say, she’s queen Kamala when it comes to Democrats,” David Paleologos, director of the Suffolk University Political Research Center, said of the survey’s findings. “Independents, you know, she’s quite suitable Kamala. Among Republicans, she’s court jester Kamala.”

Paleologos noted that in presidential election years, talk about the vice president is usually “secondary and muted.”

But in 2024, “It’s going to be almost a parallel and loud discussion in comparison,” according to the pollster.
