Joe Biden vs The Field
Morning Consult released their latest batch of polling, and after weeks of discussion over Senator Kamala Harris’ debate performance, Elizabeth Warren’s move to 3rd or 4th depending on poll, and Joe Biden having an unsteady few week, the numbers reveal….not much has changed.
Our latest Democratic primary tracking data is live:
Biden: 32% (+1)
Warren: 14% (+1)
Harris: 13% (-1)
Buttigieg: 5% (-1)

Bernie Sanders has found his floor, sitting at 20%ish since the beginning of May. Harris had a slight uptick post debate, but has fallen back, and it looks like her and Warren are divying up the exact votes the other needs to make a run at Biden. There are three tiers of presidential hopefuls right now: the three Senators fighting for second place, the rest of the mess bumping around much lower, and Joe Biden all alone with a healthy lead. Heading into next round of debates, it’s important to remember what looks amazing in the moment, like Kamala Harris’ attack on Biden, might not reflect soon after in the polls.
