Campaign Recap: Biden Down in New Poll, Buttigieg Shows Funding Increase

Biden Harris Debate

Support for former vice president Joe Biden shrunk in the aftermath of the Democratic presidential debates, data from a new CNN poll revealed.

Biden remains at the head of the pack of Democratic presidential contenders - though barely - in a Quinnipiac University national poll released Tuesday. As it stands now, Biden still has the biggest backing for the presidential nomination, followed by Harris, Warren, and Senator Bernie Sanders.

The survey of 600 registered voters who said they were likely to participate in the 2020 caucuses was conducted from June 29-July 1 and has a margin of error of "no greater than" plus or minus 4%. Sanders also decreased slightly (from 19% to 13%), while Warren held steady.

Seeing the results of the poll, the race for the potential Democratic presidential candidate against Trump has gathered much speed and competition, following the first debate.

Twenty percent of Democrats surveyed in a Quinnipiac poll published on Tuesday said they backed Harris, a former California attorney general who aims to be the first black female United States president.

A CNN poll released Monday showed Biden with 22 percent support and Harris with 17 percent - a 10 percentage point drop for Biden, and a nine percentage point increase for Harris, since CNN's last poll in May. Harris and Warren still tied at 11 percent, with Julián Castro following behind at four percent.

Biden made the remarks Harris was referring to last month, at a fundraiser in New York City, where he reminisced about bygone days when politics was characterized by a higher level of civility, citing his ability to get along with two segregationist senators despite their differences as an example.

In the latest poll, Biden has a numerical lead among men with 22 per cent.

Quinnipiac notes no other candidate managed more than 3%. Sanders garnered 14% support, a drop of eight percentage points.

That left the one-time DE senator just 5 points above Harris, who had a combative exchange with Biden during last week's debate in Miami.

Harris, who is the first Indian-origin US Senator and first black Senator from California, is the fourth Democratic woman leader to enter the presidential race.

"It was not only that, but you also worked with them to oppose busing", Harris continued.

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. When first and second choices are combined, Biden only narrowly edges Harris, 35% to 33%.

Twenty-three percent said they support Sanders. Down 8 points from the Iowa Poll, he finishes fifth, at 6%.
