According to a new poll, Americans have grown increasingly dissatisfied with Vice President Kamala Harris as she maintains her radio silence on the chaotic and tragic withdrawal of US forces from Afghanistan.

On other hand, users on Twitter are creating trends like #TrumpWasRight to show their support for former President Trump.

According to a Rasmussen Reports poll released on Thursday, 55% of likely voters believe the former California Senator Kamala Harris is “not qualified” or “not at all qualified” to assume the presidency.

According to the New York Post, 43% believe Harris is “qualified” or “very qualified” to be commander in chief.

The poll was conducted between August 12 and 15, as the Taliban launched a sweeping offensive across Afghanistan, leading to the collapse of that country’s Western-backed government just weeks before the deadline for the withdrawal of US combat forces.

According to the report, Harris has not held a public event since last week, when she cut short a meeting with CEOs to discuss the Joe Biden administration’s childcare proposals in order to receive an intelligence briefing about Afghanistan.

She has attended at least four briefings with President Biden and his national security team since then, but she has limited her public statements about Afghanistan to Twitter and did not accompany him when he attempted to justify the withdrawal in remarks from the White House East Room on Monday.

“A new national telephone and online survey finds that, if the next presidential election were held today, 37% of Likely U.S. Voters would vote for Biden. Forty-three percent (43%) would vote for former President Donald Trump, and 14% say they would vote for some other candidate,” according to Rasmussen Reports.
