California Democratic Sen. Kamala Harris needed another defining moment on the debate stage in Houston last week to boost her poll numbers, but it’s her Senate colleague Minnesota Democrat Amy Klobuchar whose numbers in Iowa are headed up.
According to an Iowa poll by Harris’ chief pollster, David Binder, released by Focus on Rural America, Klobuchar has jumped ahead of Harris in the Hawkeye State, in fifth place behind Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders after the third presidential debate in Houston.
Since the end of 2018, Klobuchar and Harris have jumped back and forth with one another in this particular poll. Harris had 10% support in September, while Klobuchar did not chart. By December, Klobuchar had 10% support and Harris dropped to 7%.
