Prior to the midterm elections, Kamala Harris makes changes to her staff.


Axios reported that US Vice President Kamala Harris had appointed Erin Wilson as her deputy chief of staff and that she would formally join her team on May 31.


Wilson joins Harris' office, following the resignation of her predecessor, Michael Fokis, and a number of other appointments to the Vice-President's office ahead of the fall 2022 midterm elections.


She served as political director of President Joe Biden's 2020 campaign, worked in national and state campaigns, and was a U.S. Senate staffer and a staffer on the Democratic National Committee. She has also recently served as Deputy Director in the White House Office of Political Strategy and Outreach.


Fokis had previously left Harris' office during her first year in office, with her office's communications director Ashley Etienne, her keynote speaker and senior adviser Simon Sanders, as well as others.



Poll: Kamala Harris is unpopular and unqualified



A new poll from US polling firm Rasmussen revealed that respondents see Kamala Harris, US Vice President Joe Biden, as "unqualified and unpopular."


According to the survey, 54% do not believe Harris is eligible to be president of the United States, and 45% consider Harris "totally ineligible" for president.


Voters also have a negative opinion of Harris, as only 40% see Harris' performance as positive compared to 56% of those who see the opposite.


The survey comes as a large number of staff in Harris' office reportedly resigned, most recently Michael Fokies, who has served as Harris' deputy chief of staff since she took office, and who resigned on Monday.


In his resignation letter, Fokis said he would remain in office until the end of May to "ensure a smooth transition."


Fokis had previously left Harris' office during her first year in office, with her office's communications director Ashley Etienne, her keynote speaker and senior adviser Simon Sanders, as well as others.
