Senator Kamala Harris has received a surge in support among Democrats following last week's USA presidential candidate debate while former vice president Joe Biden has slipped, according to a poll published Tuesday.

Harris, the 54-year-old junior senator from California, picked up substantial backing, meanwhile, from Democrats and Democratic-leaning voters in the polls conducted by Quinnipiac University, CNN and Politico/Morning Consult.

Biden did poorly in his first debate performance but that's likely due to some rust at this point in his career. In the second place, Warren was, however, only 13 per cent. The tech entrepreneur enjoyed the least airtime amongst the candidates in Thursday's NBC debate (a quarter of that enjoyed by Biden and Harris).

Harris noted her frustration with Biden's recent name-checking of two segregationist senators as a way to show he was able to work with political opponents during his decades as a senator. Aides to her campaign said she received donations from 63,277 people, and that 58 percent of those donors had not contributed to her campaign before.

Neither Harris nor Warren have made their gender a centerpiece of their campaigns so far, and it does not appear either candidate is doing well simply because they are women.

The remaining candidates have 3 percent or less, according to the survey. While Harris has jumped in several opinion polls, there has also been a right-wing backlash online. Elizabeth Warren of MA - who are rising as their campaigns begin to hit their strides. At 9%, he finished fourth, behind Massachusetts Sen. From Biden and Elizabeth Warren to Pete Buttigieg and Bernie Sanders, they are all making the comparisons to the birtherism that attacked Barack Obama, his American citizenship and racial identity.

The early surge by Warren and Harris has not been matched by other female candidates.

That represents a 10-point decline in support for Biden since the last CNN poll in May, while Harris, of California, has posted a 9-point increase, and Warren, of MA, has boosted her support by 8 points.

One thing's for sure though: "The candidates that feel manufactured because they're trying to read the polls and come up with a flawless statement that doesn't offend anybody, whether that was Hillary or Biden right now, they never win", he says.

The new poll from CNN is the first released after the set of Democratic presidential debates last week.

The real story isn't those numbers as much as it is the change between this latest poll and CNN's late May survey of the 2020 field. Bernard Sanders of Vermont was also at 16% - a 4-point drop.

Warren was right behind her at 24 percent, with Buttigieg nipping at their heels at 23 percent, followed by Booker, Castro and Sanders. Results among the Democratic sample have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 5.0 percentage points.
