Following their well-received performances during the first round of Democratic debates last week, Sens. Support for Harris jumped nine points, while Warren saw an eight point boost. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) looks on during the second night of the first Democratic presidential debate on June 27, 2019 in Miami, Florida.
But they appeared to be looking elsewhere after Kamala Harris, a United States senator from California also seeking the presidency, criticised Biden for opposing mandatory busing to integrate schools in the 1970s and for his cooperation with segregationists while he was a young senator.
-The poll found Harris as the third most popular candidate for the Democratic nomination, behind Biden and US senator Bernie Sanders, who was backed by about 16 percent of Democrats and independents. Warren also made gains in the CNN poll, from 8 points to 15 percent, while Sanders was down 4 points to 14 percent. Meanwhile, only 10 percent said Biden did the best job, according to the CNN poll. In the Quinnipiac's poll of Democratic and Democratic-leaning voters last month, Biden received the support of 30 percent of the respondents, while Sanders had 19 percent, Warren had 15 percent and Buttigieg had 8 percent. Almost half, or 47%, of Democratic or Democratic-leaning voters who said they watched most of the debate or paid attention to news stories about them said Harris did the best job, according to the Quinnipiac poll.
Biden has the support of 22 percent of voters while Harris secured 20 percent, according to the poll published on Tuesday.
Despite his fall in popularity, Biden was nevertheless seen by respondents in the Quinnipiac poll as the candidate with the best chance of beating Trump next year.
South Americans Will Observe the First Total Solar Eclipse Since 2017
Solar eclipse as seen from the La Silla European Southern Observatory (ESO) in La Higuera, Coquimbo Region, Chile , July 2, 2019. And this is not a coincidence: the solar and lunar eclipses occur once every six months, the period between them is two weeks.
While the five minute exchange between Kamala Harris and Joe Biden proved to be the prime reason for the rise in her supporters, it would be interesting to see if she can successfully turn the tide in nearly every major issue in her favor and win the support of the colored people as well.
The poll suggests a substantial upswing for Harris and a notable decline for the former vice president.
The survey included 460 Democrat and Democratic-leaning voters and was carried out June 28-July 1.
Several other candidates were at one percent, including former Texas congressman Beto O'Rourke, Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar, former San Antonio mayor Julian Castro, Hawaii congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard and entrepreneur Andrew Yang. Challenging the former vice president on his civil rights record, Harris talked about a little girl who had to be bused to a newly-desegregated school.
Biden however, has run for President three times now, but has never come close to going the distance. James Eastland and Herman Talmadge.
