Kamala Harris Approval Rating Same As Joe Biden as She Is Confirmed Running Mate in 2024

President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris enjoy the same levels of approval and disapproval as their first year in office comes to an end, according to a new poll.

A CBS News/YouGov poll conducted January 12 to 14 found that Biden and Harris each had a 44 percent approval rating, while 56 percent of respondents disapproved.

The results were published on Thursday, a year after Biden and Harris took office, and follows the president saying Harris will be his running mate in 2024.

Researchers surveyed 2,094 U.S. adults and has a margin of error of +/-2.5 percent.

The survey also found that Biden and Harris enjoy virtually the same approval rating among women, with 48 percent of women polled approving of Harris, and 47 percent approving of Biden.

Fifty-two percent of women surveyed disapproved of Harris, and 53 percent disapproved of Biden. The margin of error on that question was +/-3.4 percent.

Harris, the first woman to serve as U.S. vice president, has suffered persistently low approval ratings, with many polls suggesting she is more unpopular than Biden.

The president's approval rating has been in negative territory since August 30, 2021—the day before the final withdrawal of U.S. forces from Afghanistan.

Those polls have led to speculation about the Democratic presidential nomination for 2024, with some suggesting Biden might choose not to run again.

The 79-year-old president's age has also been cited as a possible reason for him to bow out in 2024.

However, Biden has said he intends to seek a second term, and during a press conference on Wednesday he indicated that Harris would be his running mate again.

A reporter asked the president if he was "satisfied" with Harris' performance on voting legislation and rights, and whether he would commit to having Harris as his running mate should he run for office in 2024.

Biden answered "yes and yes." Asked to expand on those comments, he said: "She's going to be my running mate, number one. And number two, I did put her in charge [of voting legislation and rights]. I think she's doing a good job."

In an NBC News interview last week, Harris was asked whether she would be Biden's running mate in 2024, but the veep not be drawn on the issue.

"I'm sorry, we are thinking about today. I mean, honestly, I know why you're asking the question, because this is part of the punditry and the, the gossip around places like Washington, D.C.," the vice president said.
