It appears the Joe Biden and Kamala Harris tandem is not looking good. Reports are swirling that all is not well with the two US leaders and tied to this is the dip in ratings of the Vice President linked to the handling of the border crisis.

The ties between the two leaders appear to be worsening with alleged feuds between the camps of Biden and Harris entering the fray.

Harris and her top aides are allegedly growing frustrated with Biden for handing a no-win issue such as the border crisis according to insiders in a report by CNN.

Worse, the Harris camp pointed out how Biden defended transportation secretary Pete Buttigieg more compared to the US Vice President.

Tied to that, the Biden administration has reportedly expressed disappointment on how Harris created self-inflicted controversies. This includes the 57-year-old’s controversial laughter when she was asked about visiting the border by NBC’s Lester Holt.

As a result of these controversies, the poll numbers for Harris have gone down. A new ABC News/Washington Post poll shows Biden at 53 percent disapproval and 41 percent approval – down 11 points from April.

Despite these issues, the White House has rebuffed the insinuations and maintains that the relationship between Biden and Harris remains strong. White House Press Secretary Jenn Psaki even responded to a report, insisting that the first woman, and first woman of color, to hold the vice president's office remains a vital partner and bold leader.

But the problem is that Harris has been given tasks that her camp feels were meant to see her allegedly fail. There are even rumors suggesting that the 78-year-old president may appoint Harris to the Supreme Court, seen as a backdoor method for him to select a new vice president, the Guardian reported.

“You should be putting her in positions to succeed, as opposed to putting weights on her. If you did give her the ability to step up and help her lead, it would strengthen you and strengthen the party,” an unnamed top donor to Biden and other Democrats reportedly stated.
