Biden faces new attacks on his past positions on racial issues

For many American voters, last week's debates between the 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls served as a first introduction to candidates other than former Vice President Joe Biden and Sen. The positive response to her debate comments about her childhood, as a black girl who benefited from desegregation busing, has convinced Harris that voters need to know her story, the person said. Her mother was Indian, her father was Jamaican and she was in the first generation of her family to be born in the U.S. Period." Donald Trump Jr., the president's oldest son, amplified the Alexander tweet, quoting it and adding, "Is this true? Ed O'Keefe reports. Harris put Biden on the defensive when she confronted him his stance in opposition of busing to integrate schools.

But that's a drop from 32 per cent support in late May, while Harris, a California Senator whose exchange with Biden on racial discrimination was seen as a standout moment during the debates, saw her standing rise to 17 per cent in the CNN poll, putting her in second place.

Don Jr.is spreading ugly conspiracy theories against Kamala Harris.

"We have one destiny in this nation and right now the vice president to me is not doing a good job of bringing folks together", the New Jersey senator said Sunday on "Meet the Press".

Harris also gained a significant number of supporters in the poll. "And it was not only that, but you also worked with them to oppose busing", Kamala Harris said on the debate stage Thursday night.

The 2020 Democratic presidential candidates do not stand a chance against President Donald Trump, Brown says, quickly ticking through the reasons why.

Warren leads Trump by 3.6 points, 48.3-44.7, and even homosexual South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg beats Trump 45.3-43.2. According to the Real Clear Politics, a Chicago-based political news and polling data aggregator, the average of major polls shows he is favored by 32 percent of primary voters, with Sanders second at 16.9 percent, Warren third at 12.1 percent and Harris fourth at 7 percent.

Biden did not express nostalgia "about who these guys were".

That represents a 10-point decline in support for Biden since the last CNN poll in May, while Harris, of California, has posted a 9-point increase, and Warren, of MA, has boosted her support by 8 points. "I was part of the second class to integrate Berkeley, California, public schools nearly two decades after Brown v. Board of Education", Harris said. That figure doesn't include those who say she is their top choice for nominee.

We've been down this birther road before. "Freaking disgusting." Although it is well-documented that Harris was born in Oakland, California (just as it was well-recorded that Barack Obama was born in Honolulu, Hawaii), conspiracy theorists and racists trolls fueled posts that she was either an "anchor" baby or born in Canada to maintain that she is ineligible to run for the White House.

A few thoughts. First, 22 percent is a poor showing for Biden, considering his sky-high name recognition and close connection to Barack Obama.

"I think it's helped her more than it's hurt her", Sabato said.

Critics say such a policy would provide further incentive to cross the southern USA border illegally.
