Vice President Kamala Harris recently broke the record for the most tie-breaking votes cast by a vice president in the Senate, surpassing the previous record set 191 years ago.

Her 32nd tie-breaking vote was in favor of advancing the nomination of Loren AliKhan for a U.S. district judge position.

This has been seen as a significant achievement, with Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer commending her leadership. (Trending: Supreme Court Delivers Historic Ruling on AR-15s)

“Today is historic,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) said.

“Vice President Harris has just cast her 32nd tie-breaking vote, the most tiebreakers ever. I join all of my colleagues on both sides of the aisle thanking the vice president for her leadership and making the work of the Senate possible.”

“The vice president’s tie-breaking votes have been consequential in moving the Biden-Harris agenda forward over the last three years,” a spokesperson for the White House said.

“These tie-breaking votes have helped deliver for the American people by lowering costs for American families, creating good-paying jobs in local communities, and providing economic relief for small businesses across the country,”

“The record Vice President Harris sets today is significant not just because of the number but of what she’s made possible,” said Schumer.

Notably, Harris and President Biden’s low approval ratings have caused stress among the Biden-Harris campaign team, with some surveys indicating a shift in public opinion, including potential shifts in voter preferences toward Trump in the 2024 election.

“Harris has the lowest approval rating of any modern vice president at 29%, with only 40% of respondents approving of Biden’s performance,” the report noted.

“The gap is gone. Thirty-six percent positive on both and Biden, one point more negative than Trump. That’s been a significant advantage for Biden. Our poll says that advantage, at least for now, may be gone,” NBC political correspondent Steve Kornacki said.

“If you take a look here by party, I think it’s significant for two reasons: one, Independents more than two to one disapprove. You don’t want to be there as an incumbent president.”

“But I think equally significant, no surprise, 7% of Republicans approve of Joe Biden, job performance, but three times as many Democrats, 21%, that’s more than one in five, say they disapprove.”

“You need much more unified support in your party if you’re going to have a successful reelection campaign,” Kornacki said.

“The youngest voters in the 2020 election were Biden +28,” Kornacki said.

“This could be a massive sea change.”
