Author Glenn Greenwald dropped a bomb about Vice President Kamala Harris’ popularity.
And he has facts to back it up.
Can’t believe that the candidate who had to drop out of the presidential race before she got even a single vote — despite huge media adoration and being from the largest state — is not popular even in the administration’s quasi-honeymoon stage. #KHive pic.twitter.com/Koq8UQHCaM

According to the YouGov poll Greenwald cited, which was conducted between May 1 and May 4, 48% of US Adults have an unfavorable opinion of Harris compared to only 41% of US Adults that hold a favorable opinion of the California lawmaker.
It’s unclear if the poll included the huge influx of illegal aliens crossing the border, a group that the left appears to have ironically renamed, “Undocumented Americans.”
One might think Americans would hold a more favorable opinion of the first uterus-owning Vice President, particularly with the current obsession over identity politics, but alas they apparently do not.
It might be that people are starting to take notice of Harris’ actions, or inactions, as the case may be. Though tasked with handling the border situation (ahem, crisis), she appears to spend more time figuring out how to avoid it.
Like the time she spent in an apparent photo-op where she seemed to be virtue signaling to the religious maskers by kissing her husband while they were both donning the facial garb.
A recent Fox News poll showed that Harris had a slightly less favorable rating than former Vice President Mike Pence after their respective first 100 days in office. Harris received a 49 percent approval rating compared to Pence’s 50 percent.
There was plenty of speculation on Twitter as to the reasons for her poor popularity marks.
In addition to being a fascist hiding in plain sight, Kamalama Ding Dong is arguably the most inauthentic public official since Hillary Clinton.

Maybe because at least 84% of Republicans don’t like the first Black female VP?

It’s her voice — piercing, deafening, shrill, drowning in condescension. It’s the voice.

As Greenwald pointed out, let’s not forget that Harris couldn’t even garner enough votes to win the nomination for her own party in the primary.
However, despite her lack of popularity, she may still be on the [likely only] path to the presidency. Many believe she has only one apparently senile old man standing in her way. Some suggested a path to overcome both hurdles she may face to get to the White House.
I hope they can prop Biden up ala Weekend at Bernie’s because if Kamala runs in 2024 she will get shut out in the EC.

Greenwald, who appears to be a liberal, seems to spend much of his time attacking other liberals. For example, he recently, and perhaps rightly, accused liberal media of using a ‘deceitful playbook.’ of ‘corroborating’ false narratives.
Regardless, when it comes to Harris’ popularity, the facts don’t lie.
