A majority of likely voters lack confidence in Vice President Kamala Harris's readiness to be president, according to a new poll.

A survey administered by Convention of States Action and the Trafalgar Group found 58.6% of respondents said they were "not confident at all" that Harris, who would succeed President Joe Biden if he were to vacate office, is ready to be president "based on her performance as vice president." Five percent of those surveyed said they were "not very confident" in Harris.

Only 36.4% of the more than 1,000 people surveyed said they were "very confident," "somewhat confident," or "not sure" how confident they were about Harris's readiness to serve as president.

Among Democrats, 42.6% were either "not at all confident" or "not very confident" in Harris, while 52.3% were "very confident" or "somewhat confident" about her preparedness.

The number of voters who were not confident about Harris's preparedness for the presidency were much higher among Republicans and independents, with 88.4% of GOP voters and 61.8% of independent voters saying they were "not at all confident" or "not very confident" in her readiness.

Mark Meckler, president of Convention of States Action, pointed to a separate poll the group commissioned recently with Trafalgar that found that a majority believed Biden is not in control of his administration's agenda.

"Our last poll found that most Americans don’t believe Joe Biden is actually running the country, and today we're learning voters think Kamala Harris’ tenure as Vice President has been a disaster, and she's absolutely not ready to step in and take his place," Meckler said in a news release. "Washington, D.C., has never been more radically out of step with the will of the American people than right now."

The poll surveyed 1,161 respondents between July 12 and July 13 who were determined to be likely general election voters and has a 2.88% margin of error.
