Vice President Kamala Harris is known for breaking records. When she raised her right hand in 2021 and was sworn into office, she became the first female vice president in American history. She also became — as the headlines so vibrantly pointed out — the first South Asian and black vice president. These two accomplishments on her first day of office proved to be only the beginning of records she would break.

An NBC poll found that Harris’s net-negative rating is at -17, the lowest vice presidential rating in the history of the poll.
