Quinnipiac poll shows Kamala Harris on Joe Biden's tail

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

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.

No other candidate got more than 3 percent in the poll.

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.

Senator Elizabeth Warren has 14 percent of the vote, followed by Senator Bernie Sanders with 13 percent of the vote and South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg with four percent.

Indian American Kamala Harris has leaped to second place in new polls riding a surge from her epic take-down of frontrunner and former vice-president Joe Biden in the first Democratic presidential debate last month. Harris comes in a distant second with 14 percent in today's poll, up from 2 percent in April.

While the results were positive for Harris - she saw her support almost double from 7 percent to 16 percent - there were some cracks in support for Biden. "There are other red flags for him in areas where he still leads, including double digit drops among Democrats and Democratic leaners who view him as the best leader, or as the best candidate to defeat President Trump in 2020", said Quinnipiac University Polling Analyst Mary Snow.

A CNN poll from May had Harris at only 8 percent. But among those who did watch the debates, her support jumps up to 20 percent.

"I took on successfully, and I prosecuted the big banks, when they preyed on homeowners", Harris said, touting her record as attorney general of California.

Quinnipiac University surveyed 554 Democrats and Democrat-leaning voters June 28 - July 1.

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

"Harris also essentially catches Biden among black Democratic voters, a historically strong voting bloc for Biden, with Biden at 31 per cent and Harris at 27 percent", the opinion poll said.

A letter has been revealed that was written by Joe Biden in 1977 to Senator James Eastland, a known segregationist, thanking Eastland for helping with his "anti-busing" legislation.
