Kamala Harris took the biggest hit in polls after the second Democratic debates

SFGate - 08-08


Sen. Kamala Harris didn’t break through in the second set of Democratic debates the way she did in the first, and it may have cost her. Harris suffered an average 3 percentage point decline in five post-debate polls when compared with her pre-debate numbers. When the data site FiveThirtyEight on Wednesday weighted those five polls based on their sample size and quality, Harris suffered the greatest hit of any candidate — 2.8 percentage points.
