Biden, Gabbard suffer hits to favorability after debate

The Hill Finance 1 month ago

Democratic presidential hopefuls  and Rep. (D-Hawaii) saw their net favorability among Democratic primary voters take a dip following the most recent Democratic debate and amid Gabbard's high-profile feud with 2016 presidential candidate , a new poll has found. 

The results of a Morning Consult survey dated Monday show Biden's net favorability slipped 5 percentage points, from 55 percent to 50 percent and Gabbard's dropped 6 percentage points from 10 percent to 4 percent following the fourth Democratic debate last week in Westerville, Ohio.

The net favorability of many other candidates remained relatively stable, as Sen. (D-Mass.) saw a 1 percentage point drop, Sen. (I-Vt.) saw no change and Sen. (D-Calif.) saw a 1 percentage point increase. 

South Bend, Ind., Mayor saw the largest net favorability increase from 33 percent to 36 percent. 

Net favorability is calculated by subtracting the percentage of Democratic primary voters who view the candidates unfavorably from those who view them favorably. 

The survey still showed Biden leading the Democratic field, with support from 30 percent of Democratic primary voters. He was followed by  Warren who was supported by 21 percent and Sanders who was supported by 18 percent. 

Twelve Democratic hopefuls faced off in the debate.

Gabbard has recently been sparring with Clinton after the former Secretary of State suggested, seemingly without evidence, that the lawmaker was a Russian asset. Gabbard has denied this and has slammed Clinton as the "queen of warmongers."

Morning Consult surveyed 11,521 registered voters who said they may vote in the Democratic primary or caucus between Oct. 16-20. The margin of error is plus or minus 1 percentage point.
