Is Kamala Harris Now Distancing Herself from Joe Biden Amid Dropping Poll Numbers?

The two were once inseparable, but have now only appeared publicly together once in the month of October.


The poll numbers continue to paint a very clear picture of the American public’s opinion of Joe Biden.

The popularity of the guy who purportedly garnered 81 million votes in last year’s presidential election is sinking fast.

So fast are Biden’s approval numbers falling, that it seems even Kamala Harris isn’t appearing publicly with him anymore.

Harris has reportedly chosen to distance herself from Biden amid his tanking approval rating.

For context, Harris and Biden appeared together publicly 18 times in February, when Biden’s approval rating was allegedly above 50%.

Those appearances have dropped month after month, coinciding with the sinking approval rating.

Harris has limited herself to just one public appearance with Biden in September, and one in October.

Biden’s approval rating dropped below his disapproval rating for the first time officially on August 30th.

As Fox News host Greg Gutfeld put it, "Kamala Harris is looking for the lifeboats on Biden's sinking ship:"

Vice President Kamala Harris has been noticeably absent from President Biden's side during recent public appearances, which is a stark contrast to their early weeks in the White House where the two were seen together multiple times in a month, the panel on "The Five" discussed Tuesday.

"Kamala Harris is looking for the lifeboats on Biden's sinking ship," host Greg Gutfeld remarked, adding that the California Democrat appeared to be hoping for "fun jobs" as second-in-line to the presidency while "shunning public events with the ‘Big Guy.’"

Several news outlets have picked up on the lack of appearances between the two:

Here's more on the Harris Biden split from our friends at the New York Post:

There appears to be a growing visible distance between Vice President Kamala Harris and President BIden, as their joint appearances together dropped from 38 in February to just seven so far this month, amid Biden’s rapidly declining poll numbers.

As the administration juggles several different crises from the border to the supply chain, the executive branch duo only appeared together once in September (marking 9/11) and once in October (the anniversary of Martin Luther King’s memorial dedication).

The joint appearances are only a few out of the 486 public and private events Harris participated in during the first nine months on the job. Most recently, she has been traveling across the country to promote Biden’s Build Back Better agenda.

A former adviser for Harris told the Los Angeles Times that the vice president is allegedly annoyed that “she hasn’t been given any all-star portfolio,” adding that Biden and Harris are divided by a lack of trust.

Harris might just see the writing on the wall.

Biden's approval plunge in the first 9 months marks the largest of any administration since World War II.

The problem for Harris is, she may be just as unpopular even without Biden.
