Following the Democratic debate which saw Kamala Harris dominate, a new poll indicated she may indeed be on the rise.
Twelve percent of Democratic primary voters said Harris was their first choice for president in the latest Morning Consult survey, which collected 2,407 responses from the moment Thursday’s debate ended at 11 p.m. through all of Friday. It’s an increase of 6 percentage points from the June 17-23 poll, doubling the senator’s vote share.
Former Vice President Joe Biden lost 5 points in first post-debate survey, although he still leads the field, with 33% of primary voters saying he’s their first choice.
The post-debate survey has a 2-point margin of error, compared with a 1-point margin of error for the pre-debate survey conducted among 16,888 registered voters who indicated they may vote in the Democratic primary or caucus in their state.
