By The Blaze. One of the first polls to be released after the Democratic debates has very bad news for the presidential campaign of former Vice President Joe Biden, the current frontrunner.
The Morning Consult/FiveThirtyEight poll found that support for Biden had fallen by a precipitous 10 percentage points among likely Democratic voters.
41.5 percent of likely Democratic voters said they supported Biden’s campaign before the debate, but only 31.5 percent said they supported him after the debate. . .
CNN’s Van Jones said in a dispirited commentary that the debate was a “bad night” for Democrats and also for Biden.
“Maybe he already thinks he’s woke, he’s already there, he doesn’t have to keep learning and growing, we all have to keep learning and growing, on women’s issues, on racial issues, on immigration issues, that’s the whole point of the country, we try to become a more perfect union together,” Jones said to the CNN panel.

Biden Sees Support from Democrats Slip 10 Points After Debate
By The Hill. . .The apparent decline in support comes after Biden was widely seen as having faltered, including engaging in a stark exchange with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) over school busing.
Harris herself got a nearly 9 point bump, with 16.6 percent of Democrats saying they would support her after the debate, up from 7.9 percent before the events.
Other 2020 candidates had marginal increases or decreases. . .
Morning Consult and FiveThirtyEight surveyed, from June 19-26, 7,150 registered voters who say they are likely to vote in their state’s Democratic primary or caucus. That result has a margin of error of 1 percentage point. Then, June 27-28, 1,399 respondents who answered the first round of questioning were surveyed. That result has a margin of error of 3 percentage points. (Read more from “Biden Sees Support from Democrats Slip 10 Points After Debate” HERE)
