A new Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey shows 51 percent of likely U.S. voters have an unfavorable impression of vice president Kamala Harris. Forty-three percent have a very unfavorable impression of Harris.

Forty-six percent of likely voters have a favorable impression of Harris. Twenty-eight percent have a very favorable view.

A majority of likely voters, 50 percent, said Harris is not qualified to become president — with 41 percent saying she is not at all qualified.

Just 36 percent of unaffiliated voters believe Harris is qualified to be president.

Those numbers are lower than Mike Pence’s numbers were four years ago when 63 percent of voters said he was qualified to assume office.
