The poll numbers come amid speculation regarding if Buttigieg, the 39-year-old former mayor of South Bend, Ind., will wage another bid for the White House in the next cycle.

CNN published a report that outlined frustrations the Vice President Harris's team and White House officials reportedly have about her role in the administration.

White House aides, however, have since heaped praise on Harris, underscoring her role as a partner and leader in the administration.

Buttigieg on Sunday dismissed suggestions that there is a rivalry between him and Harris, contending that they are too busy working to achieve the administration’s goals to bicker with one another.

Yellen had the second highest name recognition and favorability among the Cabinet members in the poll, recording a 77 percent and 33 percent score, respectively.
