Vice President Kamala Harris has her work cut out for her if she wants to succeed President Joe Biden at the White House in four or eight years.
Harris may be Biden's heir apparent, but her unfavorable ratings, even among Biden supporters, are high for a politician hoping to move from Number One Observatory Circle to 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.
And she has not been helped by her own penchant for public missteps.
Harris's average favorability rating hovers around 44%, while her unfavorability rating is 46%, according to polling aggregator RealClearPolitics. Biden's numbers are superior, with an average favorable-unfavorable rating of 52%-43%.
