Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard was the biggest winner of the Democratic debate week. The Representative from Hawaii went from 0% support in our baseline poll to 3% in our Friday night poll (see our latest numbers).
On the night before her appearance in the second round of debates, Gabbard did not win the vote of a single survey respondent. But, she jumped to 2% support on the Wednesday night to Thursday morning poll. Nearly three-quarters of the interviews for that survey (73%) were collected following the debate. Twelve percent (12%) were collected during the debate.
In our Thursday night to Friday morning poll, Gabbard’s support inched up to 3%. All interviews for that survey were collected following the debate.
ScottRasmussen.com will release another update on the Democratic race Monday at 5:00 p.m. Eastern. That will be based upon interviews collected from Friday night to Monday morning. It will be interesting to see if Gabbard retains her newly won support.
As for other contenders Senator Cory Booker gained two points compared to our baseline poll (from 1% to 3%). Former Vice President Joe Biden dropped four points. No other candidate gained or lost more than a point.
